Unbleached Cotton Dress

Last fall I bought two dresses at The Natural Clothing Company in Snohomish, WA. The first, my color-blocked dress, is a bit dressier than this one. I like this one because it’s natural, unbleached cotton with a bit of a prairie flair.

Boots: Qupid
Belt: Wet Seal
Sweater: Old Navy

cream and brown
I wore it with tall, brown, lace-up boots, but it will look good with a nice wedge-heel sandal too. I’m thinking red! For now, I stuck to neutrals. My wide belt added an interesting touch, but I’ve worn this without a belt and it works.

My gold cardi is dressier than the original prairie feel I thought I was rockin’ but I think it’s a nice high-low effect. As a sleeveless dress, I thought a cardi would help carry this into fall–not that I want to think about the end of summer just yet!

I still don’t have a pure white dress, but the natural cotton, in this creamy off-white shade will do the trick (for now).

Color-blocked Eco Dress

When I went to Snohomish, WA a few months ago, hubby and I wandered the old town, grabbed drinks, and window shopped. My window shopping turned into the real deal when I found the Natural Clothing Company.

The store features a diverse range of styles and sizes (men’s and kids’ stuff too) with a common theme: organic, chemical-free clothing. The footprint of making the clothes is smaller, and the clothes themselves are healthier to wear. Not everything is vegan (wool was among the natural fibers), but I found lots of great pieces in cotton, hemp, linen, bamboo and even soy!

As usual, I thought I’d just “try on” this wonderful organic cotton dress, but it fit so well and was really comfortable. It’s lined and has pockets! So I did the economy a favor and picked it up.

I love the pop of red the sash provides, and the three neutrals give me lots of options for shoes and accessories. If I turn from left to right, you’ll think it’s a completely different dress!

If you’re ever meandering through Snohomish (it’s the type of town that you really need to meander through), take in the sights, grab a bite to eat, and check out the Natural Clothing Company. If you don’t get to Snohomish, don’t worry–they have an online shop too!
