Annie + Jade – Plus a giveaway!
It’s time to clue you in on the great eco-luxury designer Annie + Jade and a chance to win one of her fabulous pieces! When you find a brand or designer who creates a clean and strong feminine silhouette it’s a wonderful thing. Simplicity in design can sometimes be more difficult because there aren’t any proverbial bells and whistles to hide behind. Not only do Annie + Jade designs compliment the female form but as an eco-luxury brand she’s committed to using well made, luxurious fabrics that are also ethically responsible to the environment.
I was lucky enough to play dress up in some of their wonderful pieces! I fell in love with this romper and decided to pair it with this vest for some flair. It’s hard to tell from these photos but this wonderful onesie has a keyhole cutout in the front and back. You may not realize how versatile this a romper is but because of the cut and fabric you can wear it so many ways; add a sweater or sweatshirt on top and you have silk shorts or wear a skirt over it and you’ve got a cute new top!
How could I turn down a twirl in a girly skirt? I decided on a retro inspired, lady like look for it and added a polka dot blouse. I like a winter white skirt and find it a great piece to have in your wardrobe. Swap out the blouse for a t-shirt or sweater and off you for a night out! As you can tell I was having a bit of fun in this piece.
And now for this fantastic top you can win! Isn’t it cool?! The fabric is incredibly soft and I love the “business in the front, party in the back” (hehe) design. It’s such a great design element! I thought about wearing jeans or other pants to keep it casual but decided to style it more for a night out. Leather skirts are huge for fall and this oxblood shade played off the navy color well. After that I just added a few accessories to give it that little something extra.
As if Annie + Jade could do one better? Her commitment to using environmentally friendly, luxurious fabrics is impressive in today’s bigger, better, faster, stronger world. However, Annie + Jade recognize it’s a challenge. As stated on the website, “Fashion is progressive and so are we. Let’s be honest, not everything can be eco-friendly so we want to offset our impact on the environment by purchasing carbon offsets from CarbonFund.org.” Pretty dang cool…
