A Few Of My Favorite Things: M.J. Of EthicalStyle.com

Ethical Style blogger M.J. started her eco-conscious fashion blog three years ago, thinking she knew a lot about ethical fashion. “I was so wrong,” she says. “The scope is so much more broad than just organic cotton and sweatshop labor.” And her interest in ethical fashion extends far beyond clothing manufacture and fabrication. “Right now, I’m particularly interested in the use of Photoshop in advertising, intellectual property laws in design, and designers who care about sourcing animal products humanely (even if they still use hot-button materials like leather and fur).” Check out her awesome, and informative blog, and take a look at some of M.J.’s most favorite things after the jump!

Do Not Want: Gold Chain Garter

Like many women, I’m constantly looking for ways to highlight my leg fat and emphasize the parts of my body I feel most uncomfortable with. I’m also always trying to innovate in the field of weird ways and places to wear jewelry. So, with that in mind, I absolutely recommend we all run out and purchase this newfangled gold chain garter contraption. Want more interest on your legs? Wear pants. Also, wouldn’t this tickle?

Amy Winehouse Releases Her 2nd Fred Perry Collab–And It’s Awesome

Occasionally, there are things that make you reevaluate what you’ve been doing wrong thus far in life, how you somehow have failed where others — with bigger drug problems or rattier hair — have succeeded. Amy Winehouse “designing” for Fred Perry is one of those things. Ms. Winehouse just launched her second collection for the legacy brand and it’s … actually kind of awesome. We’ve selected a few of our favorite looks — including a Hawaiian print shirt with Amy’s likeness on it — after the jump. Keep reading »

Style 911: “How Do I Create A Work-From-Home Look Without Dressing Like A Slob?”

I just got a new job, and it allows me to work from home. Great, right? But I’m worried that my style is going to devolve into sweatpants and mu-mus. Can you help me find some work-from-home appropriate pieces that will get me motivated? –Jenny

Since all of us Frisky ladies are in a similar work-from-home boat, I can sympathize with your plight. While some are more comfy and productive in sweats (hey, don’t knock it ’til you try it), others work way better dressing like they’re heading to an office for the day. Personally, I fall into the latter category. Everyday, I dress up — not in a suit or anything — but in something work appropriate, so that I can get in the work mindset. And also, in case there’s a fire in my building or some kind of emergency (like, say, someone spots Joseph Gordon-Levitt hanging out in the neighborhood) that forces me out of my apartment, I’m ready to go. My biggest work outfit productivity trick? I wear shoes in the house. Putting shoes on seems to really get me in the game. After the jump, a cute and comfortable option for you. Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Get Clemence Poesy’s Laid-Back Chic

See this pic of French actress and ex-Chuck Bass lover Clemence Poesy? It’s why French people are just better than us. They are just inherently so cool. She manages to make a rust (rust!) blazer look effortlessly chic and modern. We love her and this look, which she wore to the Chloe fall fashion show in Paris this week. And we’ll show you how to steal her style after the jump! Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Thakoon Twisted Layered Leggings

Look, I know we’re always looking for new pantsventions (that’s pants inventions) to cover the lower halves of our bodies, but really, this is just not right. Thakoon is a bonafide genius when it comes to structured style, but we’ll definitely be skipping these “layered” leggings, which are just a $378 way to look like a total schlub. I guarantee, I can recreate the Thakoon look with a couple of off-the-rack items from my local Kmart, but no one would ever mistake it for high-fashion. But if you’ve got an extra $400 to spare, by all means, have at ‘em. [$378, Shopbop] Keep reading »

Shopping Guide: 10 Ways To Get Collared Up

collared shirts main jpg
This past weekend, my friend Abby and I hunkered down indoors and waited out the rain by eating pizza and watching movies. On the top of our list: The Gwyneth Paltrow-helmed “Emma,” based on the Jane Austin novel. The story features the usual Jane Austen trappings (Wiitty banter! Love! Cheeky misunderstandings!),but it also has some absolutely divine clothes. Of course, it’s nearly impossible to find anything nearly as glorious as the reform-style gowns worn by Gwynnie and the gang, but we figured we could try to evoke the look with some artfully adorned collared shirts. Love them! After the jump, some of our favorites…
