LBD that is good for the planet, WHAT?!

That’s right, your little black dress can be good for the environment. How you ask? Shopping at consignment stores!! It is the most fun way of up-cycling (upscale recycling). Dress your little black dress up or down and you will look amazing and timeless. You can find my last post about up-cycling here: ¬†https://ecofabulousliving.wordpress.com/2015/01/02/up-cycling-you-style/

A little black dress is essential for every woman’s wardrobe but here are some rules I stick to:

1. Aim for knee length or just above the knee, keep it classy

2. Stick to one style, ERRR no. Switch it up! Try on different styles and see what works!

3. Tight is ok but thin fabric is NOT! If I can tell what color thong you are wearing or I can make out any hidden tattoos the fabric is too thin. Make sure you are getting a quality product even though it is recycled!

4. Find something you feel good in, style is all about confidence in what you’re wearing! If you feel good, you’ll look even better!

All of the pieces below are from My Sister’s Closet (link below):

This one is a crowd pleaser for sure with the delicate rosettes adorning each shoulder ($40)2015-01-08 16.16.33

When you’re feeling a little edgy, studs are a great way to go! Especially ones that create an hourglass shape like these ($20)

When going for something showing a little more skin, make sure it is not too tight. Balance is key here! ($40)

If you’re style is more boho chic, something like this is a great way to go! The embroidery work on this piece is even more beautiful in person ($25)

Not only are these pieces great for the environment but the prices are awesome! And just remember you won’t strike gold every single time you go to your favorite consignment store but you will have fun! Happy shopping and share your favorite consignment stores!
