cmarchuska

This giveaway is now closed with 254 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ hiccupapparel.etsy.com!

cmarchuska makes very fashionable eco-friendly clothing for women and men. They felt that "green" clothing lacked style and shape so they did something about it. Every piece in their collection offers comfort with high fashion cuts.

I received their christine dress and it is unbelieveable. The fit is extremely flattering and the fabric is great. It's not too heavy and not too thin. Their Italian recycled polyester buttons are a nice touch and add style to the dress. I can dress this up with a great pair of tights and boots or dress it down with some skinny jeans and flats. It's very comfortable and very well made. This dress is a must have for the season!

Here is their story taken from their website:

"cmarchuska clothing and Marchuska tees went from a vision to a reality to solve our two main issues with sustainable clothing.

(1) The current available eco-friendly clothing was not fashionable. Let’s face it, the “green” clothing out there is a better fit for your rainy indoor days or oversized pajama collections, not something that you could wear out. We make clothes that have a high fashion cut that can carry you through a casual day or a night on the town. We want you to have comfort, but with a flattering fit.

(2) The second issue is excessive prices for anything categorized as fashionable these days. We all want to look good, but in this economy everyone is trying to save wherever possible. We got tired of having limited options when it came to finding sustainable clothing that was both fashionable, but wouldn’t break the bank. So we did our research and came up with cmarchuska clothing and Marchuska tees. We are and always will be a work-in-progress and appreciate your feedback. We strive to get you the best fabrics, which not only look and feel good on you, but also help sustain our environment."

cmarchuska is offering one lucky reader a christine dress. You'll enjoy it!

  49. before I lost all my clothes (long story short, ALL of my clothes are gone except a few items)...I had two dresses in this because on me, they look is beautiful! I miss them terribly and can't find any place around here that sells any thing I could subsitute for. It's one of those styles that just 'works', you know what I mean?

    Oh yes... it shall be mine.
