I am all about making "green" choices in everyday life but clothing was one area where I couldn't get started with green choices.Simply because, clothes that were made from bamboo or other pre-washed materials were not giving me many choices.Not that I am try hard to wear chic clothes ALL the time, but when I do, I like to be comfortable, modest and chic.

I had the opportunity to review a product for c.marchuska. I should confess that I had a hard time picking one!
First, I thought I'd pick the mseries t, long sleeve as it is great to wear for winter and feels soft against your skin with the heavy jacket I have to keep on. Then I thought of the sultry summers we have and this vivons vert tee would be a great choice with it's soft, 50% cotton 50% modal blend in a fitted silhouette tee, with epaulettes extending from the collar for a unique, yet polished stand alone look.And white is the comfort color of summer as it doesn't absorb heat.
When I came across their dresses, I become more attracted to how simple yet how comfortable they looked. Perfect for a mom-on-the go like me. This Christine Dress can make you look elegant with it's A line and Italian recycled polyester buttons.Can be worn just as a dress in summer or pair it up with your jeans when it gets colder!
I finally was convinced that one of these dresses will not only look great on me but that I will feel "comfortable" wearing them. I am picky when it comes trying fabrics and most of my clothes are cool cottons and soft fabrics. I picked the monika dress in distressed black for review and was eager to try it! When it arrived, it met all my expectations in terms of fabric - very, very soft and fitting, loved the length - it came just right up to my knee and all I need is a belt to go with this dress.I am ready to go out for dinner! After I had my son, dresses were not my favorite thing as I did not want to show off the flabs I got from pregnancy. Even though this is a fitting dress, I am blown away with the comfort that I don't care about my flabs!
It would be a neat idea if c.marchuska came up with a maternity line as their material is lovable and extremely comfortable which will be great for moms-to-be.
Oh, if you thought c.marchuska had clothes only for women, you are wrong! They have some nice t-shirts that will make a great gift for your man. It feels great on your skin and not heavy, so it is definitely going to be appreciated.
If you want to pick a gift for a woman, c.marchuska has a great collection for all seasons.Their dresses are hand dyed and all their clothes are made in the New York's Garment District, USA.
