Every week we feature a sustainable brand on our blog. This week's featured brand is Zady.
What makes Zady unique from the other sustainable brands we've featured on our blog is that not only do they sell items they produce themselves, they also sell items manufactured by other brands like Soko and Steven Alan.
Some might say that this outfit is over the top but for me it's the perfect expression of how I feel, exuberant. I used to be one of those people that was deathly afraid of color with a wardrobe strictly limited to varying drab shades of black, grey and brown-lots and lots of brown.
I first heard about wood sunglasses a couple of years ago when I was surfing the internet. I remember thinking that it was a really cool idea and of course wish I had thought of it first.
Did you know that your organic cotton t-shirt takes more than 20% more land to produce than a conventionally produced t-shirt?
Every week we feature a sustainable brand on our blog. This week's featured brand is Re/Done.
What's better than a vintage pair of Levi's that has that much coveted authentic worn in look? A vintage pair of Levi's that's been re-constructed in a modern cut that's what.
Every week we feature a sustainable brand on our blog. This week's featured brand is Truss.
Based in trend-setting New York city, Truss works with Oaxacan artisans to create colorful tote bags in a geometric rhombus pattern made from recycled plastic.
Living in a way that met the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs was second nature to my grandparents generation who grew up in rural Kenya.
How could you not fall in love with a pair of pants named 'Falling Pansies'? While the print is a little bit more delicate than I would normally be attracted to, there was something about the contrast of the print against the background color that made these that made these pants edgy enough for me.
You say wide leg pants, I say palazzo pants but hey we're still talking about the same thing right? I love these pants for those balmy summer days when you need something breathable but still want to look great. They also work for those days when you're feeling bloated or working on those last few pounds that you'd love to lose and who doesn't feel like that sometimes?
Every time I wear these shoes I feel like the king of pop Michael Jackson, he always had a snazzy pair of shoes on when he performed. I'm a firm believer that everyitem of clothingor accessories you put on should make you feel fabulous because what's the point of wearing anything that makes you feel frumpy?
When I first saw this hat, I was drawn to it yet terrified of it all at the same time. It reminded me of the hats rice farmers wear in Asia, but yet it was so stylish. Concerned that I couldn't pull it off, I didn't buy it when I first saw it online.
I'm a firm believer that your home should be a reflection of your personality and I tried to do just that with my décor in my Minneapolis apartment. Neutral décor with 'pops of color' seems to bethe current (and safe) trend, but the last thing I want is to end up with a cookie cutter home because quite frankly, that is not who I am. While almost everything else in my apartment came from the home I used to own in Las Vegas, I needed a new couch to fit the much smaller scale of my current living room.
Fresh or faux flowers? It wasn't too long ago that it was considered a serious faux pas to use anything but fresh flowers but the tide has started to change. One major reason for this is that the quality of artificial flowers has drastically improved over the years. These aren't your grandmother's dusty silk flowers sitting forlornly by the window sill. Instead, these are the faux flowers you'll find at a White House state dinner as arranged by floral designer Livia Cetti, and even the renowned and uber chic Anna Wintour is reportedly a fan of her work.
When I moved to Minneapolis three years ago, I had to get creative with storage solutions. I had accumulated a lot of possessions from when I lived in Las Vegas where I had a three bedroom house which is more than twice the size of my new 900 sf apartment (still pretty large by most standards for a single person). With more than 200 pairs of shoes, countless articles of clothing, several hats and a substantial accessory collection, I needed to make it work as Tim Gunn would say.
