11 Upcycled & Eco-Friendly Party Purchases

Happy America Recycles Day! What — you didn't know November 15 was a holiday? It is. And, we're celebrating the three Rs of eco-friendliness — reduce, reuse, recycle — with 11 sustainable (and stylish!) buys perfect for your weekend-party circuit.
Thanks to designers and retailers that utilize thousands of yards of excess fabric discarded by fashion houses each season, we've got tons of brand-new pieces to wear and love. These "dead stock" textiles have found fresh homes with labels like The Reformation and Urban Renewal. From organic cotton and hand-dyed fabrics to recycled and repurposed materials, the hot buys ahead will definitely make you feel a li'l bit greener. And, really, what's better than that?
