Attention Ladies! Casual Clothing, Handbags, and Sleepwear to wear right now!

With too many cold, wintery weeks ahead I am ready for a few treats that I can wear now and that will take me into Spring!  Here are four Made in the USA companies offering  great price points and unique pieces for you to enjoy.

EARTH CREATIONS   Made in Alabama – Founders Joy and Martin started their company with organic T shirts dyed with the natural dye in Alabama red clay.   That was over 17 years ago and today they produce a whole line of stylish women’s, men’s and kids clothing still colored with natural clay dyes using the process Martin originally developed.  They have a complete casual wear line for women made from sustainable fibers.  I especially like their Convertible / Multi-use Garments:

This is all the same piece

I have this next piece and wear it year round with tights and boots and then sandals.

Venus Top in lots of great natural dye colors.

Tee Skirts created by Cynthia Niles made in Rhode Island.   All of Cynthia’s designs are handmade, repurposed, and one of a kind.  I love her circle skirts made from recycled or upcycled tee shirts!  These are great to wear now with tights and boots or ballet flats and would look really cute over your yoga or gym attire too.

American Apparel – Made in Downtown Los Angeles

American Apparel proudly greets you with its made in USA info!

American Apparel, founded by Dov Charney, is a fascinating company – (read lots more about Dov,  his personal journey, and how he started American Apparel).   In addition to  manufacturing  wonderfully trendy, fun, and well made clothing  right in Los Angeles,  American Apparel currently employs over 4,500 employees in their downtown LA factory alone!  In addition to supplying all its American Apparel stores throughout the USA they export their Made in USA clothes to stores in China, Europe, Australia and South America!  The product line is geared towards a young demographic but there really is something for everyone including women, men, teens, kids and babies.    For myself I found several stylish blouses to wear under my vintage jackets;  cute t shirts to help motivate me to get to the gym and some really pretty lipgloss and nail polish.  Oh, and they carry a line of vintage pieces – California Select – at their online store.

I love these skinny jeans in many delicious colors.

A handful of products carried at American Apparel are not produced in the USA so if you are being really diligent just check for the Made In USA tags on the garments.  Check their store locator for a shop near you or you can always shop their online store.
