Spring 2015 Eco Fashion Week -Fifth Dimension LA
The birds are chirping, the tulips are blooming, the bees are buzzing, and more importantly Spring 2015 Eco Fashion Week has finally arrived! I decided to do Eco fashion week here on Spunky Real Deals, because I want everyone to see that hippie dippie Eco fashion is taking a back seat to more refined and luxurious Eco fashion. Modern Eco fashion has arrived! It is my pleasure to introduce Sustainably Chic as my blogger Co-Host and to introduce our first Eco designer: Carla Teran of Fifth Dimension clothing in LA. Fifth Dimension clothing is clearly yogi inspired with relaxed LA vibes! Carla utilizes Organic, bamboo, and up-cycled materials for her designs. The design featured here is the crepe silk scarf cardi composed of up-cycled bamboo fleece(63% hemp and 37% crepe silk). It is incredible that a cardigan so luxurious can also be so cozy, but it is.Eco Fashion IS the use of sustainable, up-cycled, Organic, Vegan, bamboo, cork, renewing, refreshing, and reusable materials. The overall goal of Eco fashion is to do the least harm to the environment and to help people do and live better. ~ME
The Eco jewelry seen this week is from the talented Amy Jennings at Callirrhoe Jewellery! 100% Vegan jewelry with incredible design and texture. Some of my favorite pieces involve her use of driftwood! Even her ring bands are unique with most pieces utilizing a silver and copper metal fusion. Pictured above, you see a black Shiva Lingam statement ring with sterling silver band. The Shiva Lingam stone is often used for balancing masculine and feminine energies. The ring to the left is the acrylic Rose Cameo ring with the sliver and copper fused band. One lucky winner will win the Rose Cameo ring during our Grand Finale Giveaway on Monday, April 20th. So stay tuned!
Are you looking for the perfect sustainable travel bag for Summer?! You have found it! I cannot say enough about the Vegan cork Cheyenne Handbag from Rok Cork. This little tote is sleek, modern, light, and incredibly versatile. The straps can be removed to transform your tote for a night on the town! Imported from exotic Portugal. Did I say that I LOVE this handbag?! One of my favorite features of this handbag is the protective feet on the base. So, that means if you accidentally set your bag on a wet surface it remains clean and free of debris.....genius! They also have the cutest cork sandals your eyes have ever seen. If you love Eco fashion then why are you still here? Go check them out!Pixi Beauty is this Spring's Eco fashion week make up sponsor! When you wear Pixi Beauty you feel like you are glowing from the inside out. I recommend running(not walking) to stock up on their facial Glow Mist this summer. I keep my Glow Mist in my purse for moisturizing touch ups for both face and hair! My favorite Pixi Beauty palette is actually the brow game. I have not had a bad brow day since! Thank you Pixi Beauty for making this mom feel like a super model!
