Boxy blouses

            This silhouette feels so fresh. A bit over-sized, high and wide necklines, sleeves a bit longer than cap-sleeves, no-stretch fabrics. A basic tee (or dress) that’s not that at all. And these textiles! Top to bottom: Tilden Top by Upstate, made in NY, $188. Gemini top ($85) and dress ($170) [...]

Notes from Alyson Fox in London, launching her & Other Stories collaboration today

To all of us in the U.S.: I’m sorry. I’m sorry that these Alyson Fox pieces — which she designed exclusively for & Other Stories, a high-end brand launched last spring by H&M — aren’t available to us. The new brand’s stores and online sales are only available throughout Europe, where Alyson’s collection launches today. So [...]

A chat with Manimal founder Kristen Lombardi: On reuse, making miniatures and being a mom

  In 2004, Kristen Lombardi founded Manimal, her line of impeccably handcrafted moccasins and leather accessories. To hold one of her baby moccasins in your hand is to appreciate the skill and caring that goes into each piece — they’re perfectly formed, perfectly sturdy, and they’re lined with cushy faux fleece! My favorite part is [...]

Rain booties review: Jeffrey Campbell vs. Loeffler Randall

Last November, after plenty of mulling over it, I bought the grey Loeffler Randalls on the right. Then I wore them a time or two and realized they were TOO SMALL. (Rubber doesn’t stretch-to-fit like leather does! They were just too tight around the ball of my foot.) Next, I bought the green Jeffrey Campbells [...]

Half off at Mociun

Oh, this dress! It comes with two pieces — the sheer shell and the black under dress — and has so many possibilities. (I especially love the tank dress alone, tucked into those fantastic leggings.) Caitlin Mociun‘s gorgeous, sustainable designs are pricey, but at half off, this Earthquake Dress is $212 — just $106 per [...]

“Project Runway” winner Gretchen Jones on sustainable fashion, personal style and what it takes to win

Before Gretchen Jones was on Project Runway, she was a sustainable fashion designer in Portland, merchandising her slow-fashion line MothLove. But to take her work to the next level, for the sake of both finances and fame, she knew she needed some kind of jumpstart — so Season 8 it was. I got to chat [...]

Manimal Fall 2010: Alaskan Winter

At Pivot Boutique in 2008, during the world’s most incredible eco fashion sale you’ve ever seen, I bought a pair of Manimal ribcage earrings marked down to $10. They came in a kraft paper box, spray painted with a stencil in gold paint, with a little feather inside for awesomeness. Aren’t sweet little touches like [...]

AG Jeans, saving water & energy with Ozone Technology

Earlier this year I bought the best-fitting pair of jeans I’ve ever owned: “The Legging” by AG Jeans. They are a perfect summer-weight denim with a sheen and a hint of stretch (though not the super-stretchy denim that the term “jegging” might conjure up). All stitching is dark, the same color as the denim. One night [...]

These silk dresses by Josh Podoll caught my eye, and store owner Joslin Van Arsdale said that they’re designed and manufactured right here in the Bay Area. I wish you could see the detail on the [...]
