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!

New research has shown that women would prefer their bodies be referred to as great works of art rather than pieces of fruit. They needed to do a study to figure that out? Really? Anyhow, Triumph, an Australian lingerie line, is embracing this revelation by re-branding our body types. Instead of shopping for under-things for your “pear shape” or “apple bottom,” you can look for your “type” according to great works of art.

I am not a frequent watch wearer, but for the last five years or so, I have been lusting after Hermes’ Cape Cod watch with the double-wrap band. I keep waiting for the perfect special occasion to splurge on such an expensive timepiece, but it just hasn’t arrived yet. In the meantime, what’s to stop me from embracing the double-wrap trend at a far cheaper price point? Nothing! So imagine my enthusiasm upon discovering that Swatch — yes, Swatch — has a line of double-wrap watches just for the ladies? Priced at a mere $50, I think I’ll get one in the blue-green “Arctic Sea” color and one in “Honey Melon.”
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?

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 »
