ethical party wear

Hello!  Got any exciting parties lined up?  Tis the season, and I myself have a couple of parties coming up.  The first being the most important – my mum and dad’s 50th wedding anniversary!  We are all getting together to celebrate 50 years of their marriage to each other, and I am looking forward to it!

With a few parties on the horizon, I’ve been looking for pretty ethical party dresses.  I haven’t managed to find a great deal of ethical occasion wear that I would consider party appropriate but I did come across three pretty ethical dresses that I love, and thought you might too:

Thought Clothing

This pretty Vermeer dress from the always lovely Thought Clothing (£89.90) is just beautiful.  Ok, I might not pair it with socks and brogues myself – maybe tights and boots or heels – but it’s definitely got party written all over it!

People Tree

If in doubt over what to wear to that party, then I always say wear a black dress.  This black Jaime dress from ethical favourites People Tree (£79) is made from 95% organic cotton and is simple yet flattering.  It’s one to wear time and time again at any occasion.

Nancy Dee

This pretty Eliza wrap dress from ethical fashion boutique Nancy Dee ((£72) is made from 95% bamboo, and made in Britain for extra ethical points.  It’s super pretty and another dress that can be worn time and time again.

Which dress would you pick?  I can’t decide!

If these dresses are out of your budget (because, let’s face it, money is tight at this time of year), then I always heartily recommend searching eBay for something secondhand.  I’ve picked up many a pretty dress on eBay over the years: pretty much all of which have been barely worn.   I know some people won’t wear the same dress twice to parties/weddings, so eBay is teeming with worn once party dresses.  It’s certainly the most ethical and budget friendly way of bagging a party dress!
