At Paper People, we know that for Canadian eco fashion lovers, staying warm while still looking sexy can be a challenge. If boxy coats and frumpy sweaters aren't your style, then slip into a Stella Dress. Made from a beautiful collage of knit fabrics, each dress is slightly different and totally unique. We use high wool content upcycled sweaters sourced here in Toronto, Canada and combine them with a beautiful, soft Italian wool knit made from recycled wool fibres. For those of you who are sensitive to wool, fear not. We've lined this beauty with organic cotton jersey just for you!
Designer, Jenn chooses the Stella Dress in cranberry. Since she rides her bike around town until the snow falls, she needs a lot of warm layers even when she's going out to a bar on the weekend. She loves this dress because it's warm but still sexy. Jenn pairs her dress with black leggings, vintage cowboy boots and a drawstring tote she picked up at a recent clothing swap.
Jessie, designer of Sugar Rush Jewellery chooses the Stella Dress in purple. She styles her dress with some fun black polka dot tights, black patent boots and tops it all off with a brass oak leaf necklace from her own line.
Liz Parker of LIZPR and The Style Initiative chooses the Stella Dress in classic charcoal grey. She pairs her dress with a distinctive, statement collar necklace, bracelet and purple boots. This November 9th, Liz will be co-hosting Bling It On! a showcase of local jewellery featuring Jessie's jewellery line Sugar Rush and her new nail polish line Renegade Fawn.
Meaghan chooses the Stella Dress in green and styles it with an earth tone jacket and scarf. Very fall, very 90s. Her boots are made by Ark, a subsidiary of the sustainable shoe brand El Naturalista.
