my pleasure...

the EF company has been going through an update and you'll find a lot of more modern pieces mixed in with the old faithful pieces that they are known for and which their very loyal customers regularly come back for...

i really recommend their knit linen t-shirts/tanks/dresses...
they have nice styles and the colours and quality are lovely...
i also love their silk jersey basics and their tunics for layering...
as well as what they are best known for, which is really cozy sweaters and scarves...

i have piles of EF that i mix in with all my other stuff...

they have cuts and styles flattering to most every body type depending on which one is right for you...

lots of stuff in stores that isn't on the website either and they do different stuff for the south because of the temp difference from season to season...

i can't say enough good stuff about the company, really...

:p

At the end of the day, you know theres no such thing as 100% sustainable. And there are some brands that, in my opinion are using the 'eco-fashion' trend as a way to hike up their prices, increase sales, and make them look good. For instance, fast fashion brands like H&M can hardly be sustainable with the amount of clothing that they make, not to mention their quick collection turnover and low quality basically promotes disposing of tons and tons of clothes, and yet they too have their own eco-fashion line. I think that for a brand to truly be considered as sustainable, they would have to embody the entire aspect.

On the other hand, one great part of all this eco fashion marketing hoopla is that consumers are now more aware of these issues. But it kind of makes the whole aspect questionable when some brands are doing it for selfish gains.

^ There will always be cynics latching on to every positive trend. That shouldn't make the positiive development suspect, it should make the cynics suspect.

What makes you say there's no such thing as 100% sustainable?
