The Sustainable Fashion Brand You Need to Know About
- Erin loves to utilize all of her fabric scraps, such as the cute gingham trim on the dress and the collar. How cute is that collar?!! It just takes the already adorable dress to a whole other level of adorableness.
- The construction of this dress is so impeccable! I could not get over it when I first saw it. This dress far exceeded my expectations. Just look at the details in my photos!

I didn’t wear this necklace with the dress, but I chose it because I love its sweet boho vibe and the length. Long necklaces are a must in my wardrobe!
Erin really does use all of her resources. The little cuff pouch is so smart and charming! And she used leftover polymer clay from her kids’ school project to design this necklace.
Here’s some information about the jewelry at GarageCouture:
- Erin makes most of her jewelry from broken or repurposed items, including buttons and nails. (Her entire line of nail jewelry sold out!)
- She also made a collection of pendants and earrings made of illustrations from vintage Lithuanian children’s books (also sold out)!

Erin likes to shop at thrift stores and has always enjoyed sewing and thinking outside the fashion box. So she decided to pair her love of thrift stores and creating to make unique clothing!
She then realized she was really helping reduce the negative impacts the fashion industry can have on the environment.
Her sustainable fashion designs are adorable, and I have partnered with her to do a GIVEAWAY FOR YOU!! One winner can choose anything they want from her shop! Here are just a few of the adorable items.

Wow this is a really cool dress! I love how you styled it two different ways. Such a great idea for sustainable fashion. Thanks for the awareness.
Thank you! I need to become more aware of sustainability. I hope you entered the giveaway!
These days we barely think about what and how much we buy. I think it’s great there are people out there trying to change it! I should learn more about sustainable fashion. Great post and love the 2 outfits!
I really need to learn more, too! You’re right…I buy things left and right, usually not giving much thought to sustainability. Glad you like the outfits!
