fivebamboo

For part 2 of the back-to-school giveaway bonanza, you have the chance to win a dress from Five Bamboo, one of my favorite places to buy environmentally-sustainable, ethically-produced wardrobe basics. Five Bamboo clothes are buttery soft and well-made, plus, they are a small company based in Seattle, my favorite city ever. They're offering one reader a new dress of her choice: the Adelie dress (left) or the Holliday dress (right).
To enter, visit Five Bamboo, and leave a comment below that includes which dress you'd pick if you won. I'll pick a winner next week!
Update: the lucky winner is Rebecca.

So pretty, and endlessly re-mixable. I would pick the Holliday!

I love wrap dresses so it's the Adelie that calls to me.

I really like the Adelie dress (in plum, I think)! I'm often put off my wrap dresses because some can be kind of confusing to put on, so I like that the Adelie only looks like a wrap dress
