Kika – Dressing a Better World

May 13, 2014
Would you like to look fabulously chic, feel ultra comfortable, and help protect our precious environment?

Well, welcome to KIKA!  This fashion forward company is dressing a better world, through their eco-friendly, American-made clothing line.

Best of all, everything is high quality and oh so pretty!

Complete outfit by Kika!
Let me introduce my new favorite pants … Kika’s Ponte Boot Cut is made from organic cotton, nylon, and spandex ponte.  They fit like a dream.  So flattering!
The top is their Vera in the color parrot. Such a perfect spring/summer color and a great basic. The Vera is made of Tencel, a fabric created from eucalyptus pulp.  All dyes and dye processes comply with the Global Organic Textile Standard.
Add on this adorable soft and stretchy Daphne jacket with a cascading collar for a total look.
The Daphne has a drapey, flattering shape.  It looks polished like a blazer, but it’s so much more comfortable!  I love the peplum detail in the back! 

Now how about adding a gorgeous scarf?  Each season Kika selects scarves to coordinate with their pieces and the proceeds from the sale of each scarf goes to support women’s shelters.

This particular scarf, Tribal, was handmade by low-income artisans through a fair trade organization in Agra, India.  So beautiful in pattern and origin!

Make the world a better place through shopping? That sounds like perfection to me!
Disclosure: Kika sent me this complimentary outfit to review in my blog.  All opinions expressed here are completely my own.  I will receive a small percentage of sales generated through my site, which I will probably be using to buy more Kika clothing!
Tune in to this blog and my Instagram account (@fashionshouldbefun)
to see these fabulous pieces styled in new ways!

    Interesting post about KiKa. I will have to check them out. Or perhaps do a similar review for them. let them know k?

    Also, you sweet thing, thanks for loving our post about our comparative heads of hairs. My sweet HM is so loving and supportive in every way. Chemo was extra long today because they change how some of the other meds had to be administered, thanks to insurance rule changes and by the time we were both home and starving {didn't want to stay there any longer to eat dinner to – already had lunch there} we were both in tearful exhaustion. I napped and now am at the puter thanking and commenting, etc.

    You look adorable in these great model shots! Good on ya.
    ♥, Renae

    Lucy Dawn! hi! Did I just comment and then not hit publish? Dang. If I did then please leave that other comment in too. k?

    But wanted to also say that I love you saying that my short short buzz was setting a trend. I never set trends. That was awesome to hear. I am awake at this insane hour because I had to take a drop in bed nap with meds when I finally got home from chemo beemo. Man we were at the Huntsman from 10 am to 5:30 pm and then a 50 minute drive all day. Good thing we put in a doggie door for our pup. Hey KiKa sounds great. Send them my way, k?

    Loving your scarf with this ensemble – but you know my fascination with scarves no less, huh?

    ♥, Renae

    They couldn't have picked a more perfect model, Dawn Lucy! They really show how smart eco and culturally positive manufacture can be! Smart looking, too. I've had a couple of Tencel pieces that I've loved a lot. Great jacket, and as you say, all the pieces are wonderful. A little pricey for me right now, but modest prices for so many women. Fun to cruise the site as well!
