Hello there ♡
I hope that you all spent good holidays !
On my side I’m currently enjoying my last days off, and after three weeks of wonderful moments in dreamy destinations I can feel that the return to work at the end of the week will be a little hard ^^
For those who follow me on Instagram, I know you were a lot to have a crush for the dress that I present to you today: my eco-friendly maxi dress from the american brand Christy Dawn.
I had already presented this brand last year, and since then I’m still (or even more!) a huge fan !
I had then fallen for a little eyelet dress that had not left me for all summer, and after watching their new creations for months I finally decided to reorder a few weeks ago.
It is true that the basic price is quite high and the shipping costs + taxes are not given either, so I was waiting to have a real crush before I start ! Of the two dresses that I received, the one I present to you (the Dawn dress) today is a real catch: maxi cut, silk satin fabric and perfect cut, in short I think it must be one of the prettiest piece of my dressing !
In addition I find it really super easy to wear, both in summer with white sneakers, sandals or heels depending on the desired effect and in winter with a big chuncky knit and boots.
For this new outfit, I chose to show it to you as I usually wear it everyday, in a pretty bohemian style with simple flat sandals and a small wooden balinese bag.
If Christy Dawn was already one of my favorite ethical fashion brand, I also discovered these recent months several other very stylish american brands that make clothing ethically manufactured in the USA.
So here’s a quick recap of my favorite US brands (with a little focus on Christy Dawn to start with) :
✩ Christy Dawn
Created by Christy Dawn, the eponymous brand is inspired by vintage pieces with a big 70s influence. All clothes are manufactured in a very limited quantity, ethically by artisans in Los Angeles and from deadstock fabrics. My favorite models are their timeless Dawn maxi dress (which is the one I wear here in the photos) and the Paloma dress, inspired by the amerindian outfits. The brand uploads about 2-3 new pieces a week, but these are sold out quickly so I advise you to follow Christy Dawn‘s news on their Instagram account!
Founded in 2015 by Sarah Staudinger & George Augusto in Los Angeles, Staud offers a line of clothes with cuts that are both sharp but very easy to wear. All of the brand’s clothing is made by artisans in Los Angeles. My favorite pieces: the le Jackie top and the Taï dress (I’m super fan of their emerald green color !).
Is it really useful that I present you Reformation ? I think it’s one of the sustainable brands I wrote the most about on the blog since I chose to wear ethical fashion ^^! Since its creation, the brand is still as commited in a greener and fairer fashion. Its main actions are a reduction of water and energy expenses, with for each garment a report of its ecological impact. Thus the materials used are chosen to be the most ecofriendly possible (with fabrics from surplus or recycled and / or natural materials), manufacturing sites work with renewable energies (wind and sun), and the brand recycles 75% of its waste. In addition, the manufacturing is ethically made in Los Angeles ! You can read all the sustainable commitments of the brand on their dedicated page : www.thereformation.com/pages/sustainable-practices

✩ Maison Candide
Maison Candide is a young New York brand, inspired by the character of Voltaire for its line of clothing. Youth, candor, optimism and fantasy are the main characteristics of the brand’s universe, with cuts and prints that are fresh and very flattering. The fabrics used are natural, mainly linen and cotton, and all the pieces are ethically made in New York. My favorites : the Sophia dress and its minimalist design et the Brigitte dress and its vichy print.
✩ Caroline Constas
Another brand from New York, Caroline Constas offers fashion clothes with ultra-stylish prints and cuts. Beyond its ethical manufacturing in the US, the brand also offers a « green » line of which 15% of sales are donated to organizations against Global Warming. This brand’s clothing is quite expensive, so I advise that you do as do and that you take a look at yoox and theoutnet to find Caroline Constas’s outlet ♡
PS: especially when shopping on this kind of US site, do not forget to take into account the customs fees / taxes that are not always taken into account in the shipping costs if you’re not a US resident !
