I am thrilled to be able to introduce you to EcoSkin, a privately-held California apparel company that feature some of the most amazing clothes I have seen in a long time. And, like the name would suggest, the items are made with only environmentally friendly fabrics. EcoSkin also uses the highest in manufacturing standards and fair trade practices. The founder and woman behind the name is the brilliant Sandy Skinner, and her designs are nothing less than eco-chic and uber-sexy.
I have 2 EcoSkin items (Thanks Sandy!). The first is the Juniper Top in black. What drew me to this piece is that it follow the same principles of the basic Tee, which we all NEED in our wardrobe. Yet, this one takes it up a notch. The ruffle around the neck adds femininity to the top while the off-the-shoulder neckline adds the sass. Sugar and Spice, that what all Mommies are made of! It is Made of Bamboo Tencel Spandex, which is like silk to touch. Yet Bamboo has the ease of care similar to Cotton. I received the size L, which is a perfect fit – and it’s not at all tight around the midsection. A perfect top for Mom’s, it’s a longer length that hides the dreaded tummy flaws. Whether paired with shorts, Capri’s or a flirty shirt – the top has many styles yet never compromises the comfort for it. Move over Plain Cotton T, this is my new and improved essential. (ARV $128)
I also got the Chamomile Dress in the same blue color as the picture I’ve provided for you here. Now, I know the pictures feature really thin ladies (count your blessings, girls) and I was really hesitant on choosing items for myself becasue of this. But, I have to remind you that the sizes are true to form and the L size fits me perfectly. There is a slight Spandex in the material, which gives it form and shape – so I do have to make sure to wear some sort of control underwear underneath. But other than that, the fabric is devine, again so touchably soft. I love the neckline, a hint of sexiness without it being too low. The ‘Flutter’ sleeves are playful and flirty. The dress features a keyhole back that makes the Chamomile Dress fabulous from the back as well. Overall, a very sophisticated look that makes me feel great when playing ‘dress up’. (ARV $172)
