Hello lovelies!! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start! As you know April is all about going Green, so I thought I would write about organic fashion and makeup!
When you think of going green, fashion and makeup probably don’t come to mind. I knew that there were organic options out there but when I was doing my research I was rather surprised by how many organic options were available.
My first fave find comes from fairindigo.com.
I’m in LOVE with this purse and if you don’t know I have a rather large obsession with purses; they are the perfect accessory! This purse is a Vegan Isadora Tote. It’s chic and simple, that’s what I love most about it. I actually was surprised by the price, $89.90. While that may seem expensive, I don’t think it is, seeing that this purse is of good proportions and made of leather. When it comes to purses I believe it’s worth spending the little extra cash because your purse will last for a very long time.
My next little find comes from mikaorganic.com
I think this dress is the perfect little summer dress everyone needs! It’s cute, simple, and flowy. This dress is perfect for a hot summer’s day, but on those chilly summer nights throw on a fitted blazer over it and you have a chic outfit.
Cardigans are one of my favorite items to have and it’s a staple that everyone should have it their closets. This cardigan comes from gaiam.com.
Cardigans are that perfect piece of clothing that are so versatile. Dress them up or down, and if you are having a “lazy day” throw on a cardigan and you’ll instantly look put together! I love this cardigan because it is so simple and casual yet has that sophisticated touch to it.
Now onto the second love of my life….MAKEUP!!!!
I decided to introduce only one line of makeup to you because I know that you’re all probably familiar with it.
Physicians Formula; we all know it even if we haven’t used it. While I must admit I haven’t tried their organic line, I do intend to and then I’ll be blogging about it later 🙂
Yes it’s true….Physicans Formula has this wonderful little line called, “Organic Wear.” It is 100% free of chemicals plus several other things and it’s affordable. I can’t wait to try their items out because anything that is better for my skin and well priced is perfect for me! You can check out all of their Organic Wear items at physiciansformula.com.
I love their little bronzer and blush combo:
So there you have it, a few but wonderful organic options for both fashion and makeup! I had a lot of fun doing research on this topic and can’t wait to try out Physicians Formula Organic Wear makeup and hopefully I can talk my hubby into buying me that amazing purse for my birthday in May 😉
While I was happy with what I found I did come across things that I did not like about the organic options that were out there. Listed below are my likes and dislikes.
First what I liked about organic options:
- Most items I found were NOT tested on animals
- Harmful chemicals were reduced or not used at all
- Items seemed to be well made
- There was a large online market for organic options
- The options are eco-friendly and better for our planet
What I dislike about organic options:
- My main issue was pricing. A good majority of items I found were very expensive
- Clothing items were dull in color
- A lot of clothing items I found were lacking in the “WOW” factor
- A lot of the clothing was workout or casual wear
- To be sure it’s truly organic you have to read labels

All in all I was happy with what I found and enjoyed the process of my research. I love learning new things about fashion and makeup. Now I want to hear from you!! What do you wear that’s organic? Do you have any favorite organic items? I can’t wait to hear from you all!!
