Compassionate Fashion: 10 Not-So-Basic Pieces From Levi’s

This week’s Compassionate Fashion shopping guide spotlights Levi Strauss, a classic American denim brand. Unfortunately, Levi’s can no longer afford to produce all of their clothing in the US, but they deserve credit for the all the ways they prioritize worker safety and well-being around the globe. Levi’s was the first major apparel company to establish strict ethical standards for their suppliers, requiring fair wages, safe work environments, and no child labor. In 2007 Levi’s unveiled a plan to empower women in developing countries with healthcare and education. On the environmental front, their newWater<Less denim line requires 96% less water to make than traditional jeans.

Levi’s is a great example of a company that’s engaging with the global garment industry in a mindful, ethical way. Luckily for us, they also make some damn cute clothes. Everyone knows Levi’s makes classic jeans, so I thought I’d round up some of their funkier, more fashion-forward pieces. Click through to check out 10 of my favorites, all for $100 or less!

“My mother always taught me that. There was a rule in our house, no calling guys. I wasn’t allowed to call guys, they had to call me. Men like a chase.”

–Avril Lavigne shares the old-fashioned courtship tip that presumably worked wonders in her relationship with Chad Kroeger, especially since he proposed with a monster rock after just one month of dating the “Here’s To Never Growing Up” singer.

Also, you guys, I have to tell you about this photo. So, this morning I found a batch of paparazzi photos titled “Avril Lavigne Departing LAX,” and when I clicked on them, I realized that Chad Kroeger was there with her too, but had been cropped out of all the photos! He was able to photobomb his way into exactly one picture (shown above) with his more famous fiance, which I will be framing and placing above my mantle later today. Oh Chavril, never change.

2013 Cicadas

As you probably know by now, the cicadas are coming. Thirty billion cicadas, to be exact, are poised to swarm the northeastern United States pretty much any day now after spending the past 17 years underground. Many of my east coast friends have already vowed to stay inside for four to six weeks while the cicadas dutifully buzz, breed, and die; others are dreading the inevitable clean-up of the billions of crunchy post-coital cicada corpses. But one person I know is really excited about the cicada invasion: my dad. For as long as I can remember, cicada breeding seasons have been like extended Christmases for my family. I’d often find my dad out in the yard listening to the cicadas’ deafening buzz with his eyes closed, as if it were the most beautiful symphony he’d ever heard. On the exciting occasion that he would catch one of the massive insects, he’d pass it around to my brothers and me, instructing us to gently close our hands around it and feel the vibrations emitted by its trademark buzzing. Even a passionate bug hater like me had to admit it was pretty cool.

How could anyone love these much-loathed insects? Why are they so damn loud? Can cicadas hurt people? What advice does he have for people who are scared of this year’s “Swarmageddon”? Read on to get the scoop on cicadas from their biggest fan, my dad… Keep reading »

Is This Real Life?! Diddy Announces He Is Joining The Cast Of “Downton Abbey”

Minutes ago Diddy changed his Twitter avatar and background to the “Downton Abbey” logo and tweeted the following mindbogglingly awesome announcement:

“MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show+i’ll be debuting a sneak peek tonight 12am PST!”

We have no confirmation whether or not this is actually happening, if Diddy is pranking us, or if his account was hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army, but we think we speak for most people when we say, please, please let this be real!  [Twitter]
