Happy Twitter Thursday everyone — and welcome to our most exciting giveaway yet! This week, we’ve partnered up with loyale clothing to give three lucky readers the opportunity to win a gorgeous Kitale Dress from their Spring 2009 collection. Besides being profiled here on the Razz (most recently with their stunning organic cotton bikini on model Gisele Bundchen), loyale has also been featured by just about every major magazine out there. Founded in 2005 by Jenny Hwa, the company strives to “to provide eco-chic apparel for women who are equally conscious about fashion as they are about the environment.”

The Kitale Dress being offered today is made from 100% organic cotton and low-impact dyes. All three winners will choose sizes ranging from XS to L. As usual, we’ve got two ways to win — so check out the details below for more information. To browse loyale’s site and all of their Spring 2009 line, jump here.

    I need this loyale Kitale in the wardrobe for my beautiful models to wear and showcase in my photos. And I’ll be sure to give lots of Ecorazzi love on my sites and blogs.

  • Denise Gaskell

    I am soooo excited to participate in this giveaway! I have been passionate about the environment since the 6th grade!….(many years ago!) Over the years I have changed many “habbits” and encouraged several hundred people to do the same! By being connected with so many eco friendly people, I love that I continue to learn new green ideas every day. Purchasing and wearing green clothing is my next venture as I believe we should practice what we preach! Thanks for this fabulous opportunity to participate in this wonderful loayle giveaway!

    It’s hard for me to get to the malls, so I’ve been looking online for some cool summer dresses. This dress looks lovely and I’m sure loyale is just what I’ve been searching for.

  • Jennifer

    I had never heard of Loyale until I came across a tweet that eco-conscious Emily Deschanel from Bones was one of your best customers-but boy am I glad that I did hear about! Loyale has a great mission of providing fashionable and eco-conscious clothes and who wouldn’t want to be a part of that by wearing their clothes?!

    This dress is beautiful and I have the PERFECT event to wear it to. Being 27 I have 3 weddings to attend this summer and so many showers etc, plus vacation too – would love to win!

  • sarasophia

    Winning this dress would send me over the moon. I have been swooning over loyale’s summer line and owning this dress would certainly put me on the top of the list of eco-conscience fashionista’s :) I have been passionate about the environment ever since I can remember (thanks Mom!) and am loving the new organic couture that is available. Loyale is one of the best.

    Crossing my fingers!!!

  • Lyndsay Orwig

    I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect organic-cotton dress, and Loyale looks sure to please!

  • Heather

    I would love to wear that adorable organic, cotton dress this summer while enjoying the summer sun and eating fresh veggies from the local CSA!

  • Krissy

    I’m *nearly* green-to-the-max! I’m vegan, I reuse & recycle… all that’s left is greening up my wardrobe. ;) And their clothing is so beautiful.

  • The Vegan Good Life

    If you are serious about being an eco-fashionista, please visit your local thrift store, organize a clothing swap with your friends or co-workers, or hit a garage sale. Or, gasp, consume less, period. Even if this dress is organic, its production is still taking a toll on the planet. And what about the air miles? This is being flown in from India so everyone can pat themselves on the back for being such a ‘responsible’ consumer. Second-hand is the way to go.

  • Mouse

    Vegan Good Life has a very good point. Darn, I feel so guilty now, and that’s completely appropriate!
