Friend and reader Sterlingspider, with whom I’ve been discussing corsets, recently sent me a link to Faernyn’s Grove Sustainables. Yes, they have bridal corsets…really nice ones, in fact. But they also have a small selection of dresses and today I want to talk about those.
Check this out:
Wouldn’t this A-line jade green formaldehyde-free silk piece make a gorgeous bridesmaid dress? It’s practically making me salivate. What’s sustainable about it? According to the web site, every design listed is produced with at least 70% sustainable textiles and, additionally, every design has a 100% certified organic fabric option.
Now, to shift topics to your least favorite topic and mine, holiday shopping. If you happen to know someone who, like me, is fascinated by corsets, I can’t recommend The Corset: A Cultural History by Valerie Steele and Fetish Fashion: Undressing the Corset by Larry Utley highly enough. Both are absolutely stunning!
