Eco-friendly Doie Designs’ Sara Kirsner recently moved from New York to California, and you can clearly see it in her new Spring collection, aptly named, the Los Angeles collection.
Sara previously worked mostly in bamboo and silk, but she’s made the change this season to mostly organic cotton and silk (I actually prefer organic cotton, because I think it’s eco-friendlier than bamboo). She still brings back the signature lounge pant and wrap shirt, but I love the new dresses most of all, especially the Mulholland (the second dress from the left).
Now through May 31, use code “Grechen25” for 25% off at Doie Designs and snag yourself some pretties!! This code is ONLY valid on the Spring/Summer 09 collection – all other collections are already marked down by 60%!
one of my very favorite bamboo pieces (this dress) is by Doie Designs. I love the texture and weight of the bamboo jersey, and the lovely detail at the bottom of silk trim. Now, while I’ve said that bamboo is NOT as eco-friendly as organic cotton (at least bamboo that is chemically processed), it IS better than conventional cotton, and I cannot get enough of the luxurious feel and great fit of bamboo clothing.
Sara, the designer of Doie Designs, has been generous enough to offer all “Grechen” visitors 30% off at Doie Designs through December 3 with code “grechen08.” Check out the new “NYC Collection” and considering picking up some pieces as gifts. Think about your BFF or mom you’ve been trying to convert over to earth-friendlier fashion – bamboo is a great way to start; it’s soft, fits great, and is flattering on nearly all body types.
