FROCK LA Vivien Long Sleeve Dress with Train

I am loving FROCK LA Vivien dress! This is a beautiful dress, I can’t even explain it. Usually ethical dresses are a little less than red carpet. Frock LA is beautifully! The dress is very simple yet elegant. I think that ethical clothing is finally really starting to gain style and not look crunchy the way most people expect. This dress is complete proof.

Description: Get seriously smitten with this sustainable jersey gown. A surefire way to make an entrance (or exit) at your next formal event. Exude elegance without looking overdone. This dress will speak volumes with it’s classic lines, backless design, and subtle rounded train. Pair with a cocktail ring and clutch bag.

Ed Begley, Jr.’s Guide to Sustainable Living lays out a detailed road map culled from Ed’s thirty-nine years of green living. For the first time ever, a comprehensive plan is provided, from effective conservation techniques to producing your own energy.  Starting with the energy audit, Ed shows us how to create a game plan for resource conservation in the home. Then, once an adequate baseline of resource use is achieved, he leads us into more in-depth eco-matters, such as the production of alternative energy, and how to use solar and wind energy and a geothermal pump. As Ed’s guide continues, the focus then turns to sustainable lifestyle management choices, such as home gardening, and guidelines on creating a green nursery for your children. This book covers it all–small to large–in plain language and in a progression from resource conservation to energy production and lifestyle management that makes both environmental and fiscal sense.  There’s something here for everyone–new and experienced environmentalists alike–and Ed walks you through every step of the way with helpful sidebars that outline costs and paybacks, as well as essays detailing his experiences of completing these eco-projects on his own home.
