So…the name of this blog is Green & Gorgeous, and I do a lot of outfit posts, right? So you might be wondering why you don’t see sustainable clothing options more often. Well, the truth is that it can be really difficult to find stylish organic (or otherwise sustainable) clothing options for a plus-size girl like myself. I’ve complained about this before. Someone up there must have been listening, because Synergy Organic Clothing recently contacted me to alert me to their beautiful collection — which goes up to an XXL. That is still rare in today’s green fashion world.
Their catalog is full of beautiful, breezy pieces that completely debunk traditional ideas of what green fashion means. Take this first dress, for example. The Athena caftan is pretty much the perfect maxi dress. It is lightweight enough to work throughout the scorching summer months, and versatile enough to be worn casually as a swimsuit coverup, or — similar to my styling — slightly more dressed up with accessories.
I’m wearing an XXL, and it is roomy enough to allow me to nurse baby Juliza without tons of extra effort — something that’s tough to find in dresses these days. I love everything about it, including the icy blue color, though it is available in several additional colorways.
Now this second dress, the Padme, is the perfect choice for embracing my curves. They are more abundant today than they were before I had baby Juliza, but you know what? I’m perfectly OK with that and I’m loving my body through all the changes.
This dress has a subtle stretch that really hugged me and made me feel sexy — which I’m sure my husband appreciated when he was shooting these photos. And even better, it’s like getting two dresses in one. I wore the Padme with the “belt” detail in front, but it can also be worn the other way, with the draped neckline in front (see the third photo). This option would be perfect for nursing. And worn that way, I’d wear heels and big hair, possibly for a date night look.
I’m going to be keeping my eye on Synergy Organic Clothing, because I think the best is yet to come. If I had one request, it would be to see some options with patterns. There are some pieces in stripes, but I’d love to see some florals and graphic prints as well!
