Bibico Celia Dress
Because I need more sartorial seduction in my life. :)
Allow me to preface this...whenever I hear the phrase "fair trade," my first inclination is to find products made in the U.S. (Go ahead, throw tomatoes.) So that would include Velvet, Stewart + Brown, C & C California, Cydwoq, smaller brands such as Heartbreaker Fashion and Punkin NYC, the odd Supima cotton item...all of which I have bought, and check out periodically. There is also a slew of brands I have yet to try, such as LA Made, Lamixx, Prairie Underground, Clary Sage, Vintage Shoe Company, Aurora Shoe Company, Splendid, yadda yadda...
All of that said, the idea of fair trade international is a good one. Why not?
The one domestic source of Bibico I've found is Modcloth:
...where you can get this nifty yellow-and-white striped top with pockets for about what you'd have to pay at J.Crew.
