What: Eco-friendly fashion gone girly at Coco*s Shoppe.

Why: Karyn Craven's fashion line, Burning Torch, recycles material and treats every garment with respect, believing "that the energy of all time and history is in each and every garment." Wow. As a lover of all things frilly and romantic, this is fashion with incentive and organic purpose — something I can really get excited about.

Hand detailing and exquisite attention to detail make this line a real find, with pieces ranging from vintage inspired, as with this Parisian Tea Cloth wrap dress, to bohemian, like this tunic dress made entirely of vintage pearl-button shirts that ensures no two dresses are alike. Not into the vintage scene? There are also plenty of city-sleek options like this adorable, flowing striped tunic. We all know that striped tees are one of the hot style finds of the moment (see our coverage of the Gap's upcoming spin on the style), but this tank takes an even fresher approach to the old favorite with the perfect contrasting adornment, an adorably girly satin ribbon shoulder tie. Flanked by the rebellious stripes it's a perfect match.

I'm not ashamed to say that my favorites are the most undeniably classic and romantic: a beautiful silk tie blouse and a 100% silk aqua dress with beaded detail.

Price: $96-304
