Back to Edun: Little Black Cut Out Dress

by jennine on July 1, 2011

Getting cast out of Eden isn’t so bad when you consider we now get to wear clothes. Especially when it comes to wearing clothes that are in some respect socially conscious. A while back Sonja did a wonderful exclusive interview with Edun’s co-founder Ali Hewson, so when at the Blogger Closet Raid, Edun had a rack of samples, and I fell in love with this little black cut out dress. Made in Africa, the linen of the dress is lush and doesn’t wrinkle like a lot of linens do. The cut outs add a bit of  edge to an otherwise standard dress.

See cut-outs add circulation for the super hot days! I loved wearing this dress so much, I’ve worn it twice since last week. It’s really great for dressing up or down, day or night. A girl needs a bit more of these types of dresses, particularly for the holiday weekend!

Have a happy 4th!
