This casual dress can be worn with rugged boots, but stockings and feminine heeled shoes will definitely do. It has a western feel to it, but not too much, it's a versatile dress and is perfect for everyday wear.

What makes organic cotton a better choice than conventional cotton? First of all, organic cotton doesn’t need chemical fertilizers and less water to grow. Secondly, when cotton is organically grown the land stays fertile for a much longer period of time than when conventional cotton is grown on that same field. Growing organic cotton has a positive effect on the lives, health and incomes of the farmers. And organic cotton is healthier for the wearer!
