Something Exceptional

I’m in love with Etsy.

It’s a virtual marketplace for handmade stuff from all over the world with a simple motto: Buy, Sell and Live Handmade.

This emerald locket from Something Exceptional is one of my faves.

Why did we ever stop wearing lockets?

Anyway, if you like craft fairs, scrapbooking, or vintage shopping, beware: it can definitely turn into a rabbit hole…

Props to Jennifer from Sweet on Veg for turning me on to this fun site!

Glamorous Green

organic green eco-friendly clothing

Green clothing gets such a bad rap at this time of year – fashionably speaking, that is.

If you absolutely MUST don green frocks for a St. Patty’s celebration, don’t cop out with a cheesy green t-shirt featuring a clover or a leprechaun – get creative and find something green and gorgeous! Better yet, show off your sustainable style and wear something eco-friendly and fabulous.

Gone are the days of trading eco-friendly frump for clean couture karma. Designers at every level are greening up to offer some amazingly chic alternatives. You may literally be wearing a paper bag, but that doesn’t mean it has to fit like one!

Look at designers like Stella McCartney and John Patrick for high-end inspiration. Check out Jonano’s ecoKashmere collection – abfab and afforable! Shop at American Apparel for basics to save some of of your own green. Stock up on Levi’s for jeans that are eco-chic and cheap. Scout out unique vintage pieces for the ultimate recycling experience. Or try out some some vampy vegan shoes.

Keep an eye out all year for great green pieces or accessories like scarves, hats, handbags and jewelry that you can pull out at a moment’s notice for a quick touch of green.

Most importantly, let your style reflect who you are – inside and out.

“I have so much more serenity now, knowing I am trying to make a difference.”
- Linda Loudermilk, speaking on her move to sustainable and eco-friendly fashions

Sexy Green

sustainable organic lingerie

FINALLY! Gone are the days of having to choose between style and substance.

We all know it’s cool to go green, but with sexy lingerie made from organic, recycled, sustainable materials, you can make it totally HOT!

I don’t know about you, but I was never a big fan of cotton Jockeys. And as much as I love the concept, the ads for American Apparel showing polaroids of teens in cotton undies are just a little too creepy for me.

You shouldn’t have to look like a 12-year old boy or a 98-year old granny just to be environmentally friendly. Fortunately, there are some wicked cool options for stylish, sexy, eco-friendly lingerie that comes in way more colors than green.

Check out the sensual lingerie collections with materials derived from recycled fibers from French designers g=9.8, eco-collections of beautiful clothing, lingerie and accessories from organic, sustainable and vintage fabrics from UK-based Enamore, and handmade, eco-friendly bras and undies from midwestern-based Urban Fox.

Of course, the “greenest” option is to wear nothing at all ;-)

Lemme know how that goes for ya…

In-Your-Face Organic

John Patrick Organics 2010

A new breed of eco-designers is emerging, bucking the trends and shucking the labels of “eco” and “green” in favor of simply being great designers whose clothing is, first and foremost, beautiful and creative.

For them, environmental responsibility isn’t a selling point, a mark of distinction, or a marketing spin. It’s simply a foregone conclusion…and one that requires no discussion.

John Patrick is one such designer who envisions a world in the near future where people won’t ask “Is it organic?” but say instead, “Of course it’s organic!”

Although his unconventional choice of a moody, smoky NY steakhouse was hardly the quintessential venue to showcase a 2010 spring collection, it was a brilliant exercise in irony. By choosing this trendy location that was borderline anti-organic, surprising and even offending some long-time fans, John Patrick transcended the “eco-designer” stereotype. With his new line of luxurious clothes coming to life in this unusual showcase where the audience could interact with the models and feel the sumptuous fabrics they were wearing, John Patrick proved himself to be a fabulous designer…whose clothing just happens to be organic.

“Fashion-Forward” Redefined

September 22nd, 2009 G Posted in STYLING 1 Comment »

Stella McCartney is by-passing the green bandwagon and taking the concept of being “fashion-forward” to a whole new level.

Going far beyond boycotting leather and fur, Stella brings both her fashion design and production into the 21st century by incorporating environmental responsibility into her business on all levels.

“Hopefully the next generation aren’t even gonna know about the words environmental or green, it’s just gonna be the way they think…really, we should all just be thinking about being responsible citizens of the planet Earth on a daily basis. We shouldn’t even have a word for it.”

~Stella McCartney
