Congrats to Vicki S., winner of the GAIAM Silk Trim Dress Giveaway!
If there's one thing every woman's eco wardrobe needs, it's more versatile pieces; which is why it's pretty exciting that we've got the GAIAM Silk Trim Dress giveaway going on now! Hailing from GAIAM's gorgeous clothing line, this racerback dress is made of a travel-friendly blend of 67% rayon from sustainable bamboo, 30% organic cotton, and 3% spandex. "Yeah, yeah, yeah," you say, "but how do you really like it?"
I'll admit, the classic A-line styling and the scoop-neck are some of my favorite things in a dress. I also love the blend of fabric, and I've always been a sucker for a good bamboo / organic cotton blend. But the one thing that really revs my engine with this little number is the versatility of the piece. Mine is in that gorgeous North Atlantic blue, seen in the top photo, which is a great shade for any season. Worn as is in the summer, you've got a cool and breezy dress for the steamy days. Paired with a jacket or cardigan in the cooler weather, and that dress will take you right back into spring again.
Add accessories, such as the belt seen above, and you can change the look of this dress over and over again, making it a fashion staple. To me, that's a great benefit of the piece. You can make your outfit memorable without the dress wearing out its welcome if you choose to wear it often. (And you will with this one!)
GAIAM's clothing line for $80. I'd recommend sizing up on this one if you like the loose, flowing look of the photos here. Add your favorite jewelry, those shoes you just adore but don't get to wear often enough, and your "I look fantastic today" attitude, and you're ready to go!
Want to win your own? Yeah, I thought so. Read on, get entered, and good luck! You'll look great in it - I know you will!
