This shop peddles eco-friendly apparel of all kinds, including organic denim from Loomstate, bamboo longsleeves from Sameunderneath, soy/organic cotton shirts from Of The Earth, and a whole load of gear from Bono’s Africa-supporting line Edun, Gaelic for “Africa will develop sustainable industry before I produce another album as good as Zooropa.” [TheGreenloop.com] Keep reading »
There’s something about the way Jeannine Tamm wears scarves that makes her seem like a worldly person. Her outfits have the je ne sais quoi of a stylish European, which makes sense since she’s lived in both England and Germany. We love her earthy style — is it earthy, or do we just think that because of the awesome wood background on her blog, The Coveted? [The Coveted] Keep reading »
It seemed like it was never gonna happen, but spring is finally in the air! While some celebrate by partaking in any possible outdoor activity — long walks, picnics, sitting outside and reveling in the fact that such an act is no longer torturous — others, like yours truly, reach for their favorite warm-weather appropriate ensembles. Mine is comprised of a formula that is quite basic and yields solid results. Ready? Super short shorts, a cute top, and killer heels. This look is all about the legs, hence, all other areas of skin aside from your face should go into hiding — you gotta leave something to the imagination. I tend t think the top should also be relatively subdued, so no crazy patterns, embellishments, ruffles, and so on. The key here to keep it effortlessly sexy. A thin top, floaty blouse, or even a mildly sexy cami topped with a thin cardigan are all great ways to keep it mellow on top. My suggestions, after the jump! Keep reading »
We love it when smarty-pants people, like MIT grads Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg, use their brilliance for things like curing disease and/or making jewelry. This “Full Moon” necklace from their “Nervous System” line is a “one of a kind composition born from the intersection of rapid prototyping and pattern generating algorithms.” Yeah, we don’t get it either, but isn’t it pretty?

Sex sells. But does doggy-style make shoppers want cheap, trendy tops? Our gal pal Heather is way into Forever 21, but she did a double take when she saw their mannequins doubled over and sent us a picture. Usually when we pose like this, the lights are out and weâ€™ve had a couple drinks, but apparently thatâ€™s just the look the store in New York Cityâ€™s Union Square is going for. Guess working it from behind is always in style!

High-waisted pants are tricky. They have the potential to make even the Skinniest Minnie look dumpy. But this pair from eco-friendly designer Anna Cohen (her company runs on sustainable practices, from raw materials to end-of-life use) has the ever-so-elongating vertical stripes and an extra long leg that fit down over a pair of high-heels.

So you’re going to New York City. Obviously there is a long list of touristy things you can consider doing, especially if it’s your first time — Yankee game, Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building…or you can skip all of those, watch a few New York movies for that experience, and stick with our picks instead. Trust us — these are way more fun AND way more New York. Keep reading »
She’s added a ring, sunglasses, a scarf, and what looks like a Chanel bag to her simple black-and-white ensemble, but the best addition to this girl’s outfit, by far, is her dog. Do they carry those at Barneys? [Trender Bender] Keep reading »
Anne Slowey, fashion news director at Elle, told The New York Times that the dress will end its long reign at the end of August, and we should all wear trousers instead. This is a sad prediction, and rather unexpected. Retail analysts at NPD Group determined that from April 2006 to April 2007, there were more than $5 billion sales of dresses, 30 percent higher than the previous year. We wear them about four days out of every week and are not sure how our legs will react to being encased in fabric all day. Dresses are wonderful creations. Yes, they’re feminine and flattering, but they have other merits, as well. As Amelia says, “They’re drafty, and they make it easier to pee in public.” [NY Times] Keep reading »
Jenna Bush is getting married on May 10th and USA Today got a good look at her bridal party’s outfits, designed by Lela Rose. Our first impression is that Jenna’s bridesmaids won’t be tossing these dresses in the Hall Of Shame bin the second the ceremony is over. [USA Today] Keep reading »
