What are You Wearing New Year’s Eve?

IMG 5715 - What are You Wearing New Year's Eve?
I can not pick between these 2 outfits, they’re both freakin’ fantastic!
Peace & Love: tie-dye leggings & a tunic top scream good times
BUT
Poppies at Midnight: is one flirty wrap dress, especially with striped knee high socks 
I always like dressing up on New Year’s Eve, but I also like to feel comfortable.  The outfits pictured here are my top 5 favorite outfit possibilities for New Year’s Eve. They’ve got that playful, good vibe for starting the new year off right.

OUTFIT52 - What are You Wearing New Year's Eve?
Lotus Flower: layers great for a night out dancing. Get too hot? Set the denim shirt aside

Now I just need to decide which one I want to wear. Oh, decisions… 😉
What will you be wearing this New Year’s Eve?

Organic Kids Clothing for Matching Family Photos

One of the things I like about Soul Flower’s line of organic cotton T-shirts for kids is that many of the designs work for both boys and girls. From baby bodysuits to children’s sizes, these adorable designs go beyond the typical pink for girls and blue for boys. They are especially great for family photos, as many of these designs come in women’s and men’s sizes where the whole family can match! 🙂

Woo be Scrunchalicious

Yay! Got my new crop pants, buds and I gotta tell you, they’re packin’ some serious scrunch! They definitely deserve the name scrunchalicious! I’m always amazed at how much I adore these garments when they arrive. Is that weird? I can’t remember ever being so happy about getting clothing before. Describing the goods with such strong emotional phrases like “love, love, love them!” Yep, aha and theses capris are so wonderful, I just love ’em, too!

cool hippie crop pants - Woo be Scrunchalicious

The soft fabric gives them a lot of stretch (95% cotton and 5% lycra) making for one cozy pair of crops. I gotta admit, I’m more of a shorts or jeans kinda gal when I’m in casual mode. Creature of habit, maybe? Well, these scrunchie crops have changed my mind on what’s most comfortable. These cropies are mucho soft, a nice weight plus have great details and style. I feel like I’m dressing up every top I own with them. All the same, I can totally lounge around the house while sporting these puppies and don’t miss wearing jeans or shorts AT ALL. In fact, I feel like I’m in my pajama bottoms! Shhh.

cool ruched summer capris - Woo be Scrunchalicious

As for the design, the waist has a thin elastic band that is very stretchy. The size small waist seems to comfortably stretch to twenty eight inches. Below the waist the capris have a three inch stitched yoke design. Love that 80’s throwback detail. They seem to be a little big in the hips for me but I wear long tops anyway so, no worries there. The sweetest little embroidered tree lives centered on the back of the waistband and they have a nifty seam down the middle (front and back) of each leg. Starting at the knees, the main feature, the coolest gathered scrunchieness ever! I ordered them in brown which is a really nice chocolate shade (darker than the picture online) and they go with almost everything I own. I like them so much I’m thinking about getting the black ones (which will go with everything else I own).

funky boho women outfit - Woo be Scrunchalicious

There’s another important benefit of owning these capris, they are part of Avatar Imports clothing line. Avatar is a member of the Fair Trade Federation, (a nonprofit trade association that promotes businesses that adhere to principles of fair trade). So, workers creating these great clothes aren’t paid as little as possible (sweat shop amounts), they are paid an amount that actually allows them to…live. Not only that, Avatar is a certified “Green” company practicing resource conservation – conserving energy, water, materials, preventing pollution, waste, etc. This inspires me to do what I can in my own life because even simple things like shutting off power when leaving a room, printing double sided or canceling junk mail CAN make a difference. These things matter. Every natural resource is precious and every being is of value and deserves to be treated with fairness and a chance at a better life for the work they do. Wouldn’t it be great if this was a priority for everyone? Today is the day to change. So, I will gladly wear wonderfully unique scrunchalicious capris from companies that believe in doing good, being conscious and fair.

Peace and love,
~Woo

More Bliss: Our winner Nana Jill

old port2 - More Bliss: Our winner Nana Jill

Thanks for all the fabulous photo entries you sent in to win a soul flower gift certificate – we had so many more than expected! It was so much fun to see everyone in their soul flower threads. We have picked a winner but we also decided, because there were so many great ones, that we are doing a CircleTee giveaway too for some of our “honorable mentions”. Watch for those pictures over the next month here on our blog.

 

Today, we are posting our grand prize winner, Jill. Jill & Max are pictured here in their cool threads. Here is Jill’s message she wrote with this entry.

 

 

“The attached picture is Max and me, Jill aka Nana walking in the Old Port section of Portland Maine last August, 2008. We were on vacation, visiting family and all I packed were Soul-Flower clothing items. The dress I am wearing is the very first item of clothing I got from Soul-flower. Actually, my daughter Hope Starr (Max’s mom) ordered this dress for herself and it fit me better. Since this dress, almost every article of clothing i own comes from Soul-flower. Same for Max. We love your clothing. It feels so right to me, to be wearing clothing I got from you. It fits my personality and essence, as it does for my daughter and my grandson.
Thanks for all the wonderful duds!
Jill and Max”

Meet Ruthie Rainbow (our review winner)…

We loved reading all the great reviews on our site these last couple of weeks. While they are all fun to read and so many shine, one was extra special to us, and that one is…..drum roll please…..Ruthie Rainbow. Ruthie’s mama, Georgia, wrote a great review of the Rainbow Peace Skirt. And sent a couple of adorable pictures of her little rainbow loving toddler, Ruthie. Here is the review. Thanks Georgia, your gift certificate is on the way!!! And thanks too to everyone who participated. Watch for another contest out here by the end of the week.

Ruthie’s Magic Rainbow Skirt by our bud Georgia
rainbow+ruthie - Meet Ruthie Rainbow (our review winner)...“My little girl “Ruthie Rainbow” is full of magic, creativity, and imagination. At 3, she is strong-willed in her desire to create her own styles each morning, before we head out the door at 7 am. Often, she wakes up, groggily rubbing her eyes & announcing “I need to wear rainbow clothes”. When I showed her this skirt online, she told me, “this is perfect” and when it arrived in the mail, she hugged it to her chest and vowed, “I will wear this FOREVER”. Now, it is a struggle to get her to wear anything else! How perfect that there was one for her twirly-whirly mama too! We both wore this skirt to the CD release party of our Kid’s Band “Spiral Up Kids” and twirled on the dance floor. Our outfits brought many smiles and compliments and we both felt so special in our rainbow skirts. We just LOVE them! Thank you Soul-flower for designing clothing feels so good & let’s your true spirit shine through! These rainbow skirts are not only beautiful but magical too! (I guess we’ll need one in the next size too, as my Ruthie Rainbow is growing up on me, before my eyes!)”
