If you've finally decided to give your wardrobe that mindful makeover, this summer's a good time to do it. After bringing its online vintage shop to LA's stylish flea markets an then settling into a permanent space, bohemian-cool lifestyle boutique Whimsy + Row has unveiled its first clothing collection — which just so happens to be eco-friendly.
The six piece range is comprised of sustainable summer-ready staples, all made in LA from deadstock recycled fabric. "I studied sustainable fashion and it has always been my desire to have a collection that women could feel good about from start to finish," explains W+R founder Rachel Temko. "We are in a landscape of fast, throw-away fashion, and I want to be a part of the movement that is changing that."
Inspired by vintage silhouettes, the line ranges from $86 for a blouse to $140 for a romper and $118 for a dress to $198 for a floral jumpsuit. Take a peek at a few of the pieces in the gallery above and shop them IRL starting today, when the band pops up at Milkmade on Abbot Kinney through Sunday.
Can't make it to Venice? The collection lands online on Whimsy + Row's website tomorrow here.
