When I saw this eco-friendly mini dress from Etrican, with big muted green feather prints on dirty white fabric, it was like wearing something I painted myself. Life can be tough when you love to wear colors but hate the feeling of being too colorful. Confused? I know.
I love how colors can instantly brighten my look but too much feels like eating an entire box of white chocolate cupcake with caramel and nougat toppings. Like sinfully sweet cupcakes, I can only take my colors in spatterings.
Etrican is a local Singapore brand. It uses 100% Cerified Organic Cotton in its designs and also has a line of upcycled accessories. Etrican has a way of making colors still look ‘neutral’ which makes their clothes very wearable both for loud and safe dressers. The designs look very young, comfortable yet hip — something I can wear at the beach or during a casual stroll at the mall.
The fabric initially felt warm on my skin but after the first wash, it became softer and more breezy. It actually came with a horse belt (a braided belt made from the same fabric) but I prefer wearing it without. This dress used to be slightly longer but it has shrunken a bit after two washes so now I can only wear this with shorts. I think it’s because I didn’t follow the washing instructions on the tag. Who does?
I’m pretty impressed that Etrican kept their prizes reasonable although their designs are more unique. I got this dress on sale for less than S$30. I’m turned-off by a lot of eco-friendly clothing due to the ridiculous luxury pricing.
Although I’m currently on a shopping ban, I’m looking forward to buying my next printed Etrican dress.
Maybe, I should get myself a maxi dress next time?
