As you probably know by now, my eco philosophy is that it shouldn’t be hard to be green, it’s ok to be just a little (pretty!) green and that being green can be totally lovely, fun and fashionable. When it comes to eco-fashion, here are a few of my recent favorite pretty green discoveries.
I just learned about this cool green flash-sales site through one of my favorite blogs, A Cup of Jo. Featuring up to 70% off on eco-friendly fashion, cosmetics and accessories, Loving Eco is a fabulous way to try out green brands at great prices. How pretty are these lip stains and bamboo sunglasses?

Rent the Runway
I’ve been meaning to try out this super cool fashion site since a friend scored a gorgeous designer dress for New Years Eve a few years ago. The concept is simple: “rent” a designer dress at a fraction of the cost, wear it and send it back to be cleaned by their eco-friendly dry cleaner. They’ll even send you more than one size the first time you try a particular designer, let you rent a backup dress for only $25, and give you everything you need to send the dress back, pre-paid. They also offer awesome accessories and bridemaids dresses (hint, hint, green bridezillas!). Sure, you’ll be shipping stuff back and forth, but instead of always buying a new dress for every event, taking up space in your closet (and eventually the landfill), you’ll be able to share the wealth with other deal-loving, tree-hugging fashionistas. I’m definitely eyeing these beauties for some upcoming events.
