Happy 2010

Happy New Year, friends! I’ve been out of town visiting family for an extended holiday — collecting the sweetest gifts from the sweetest people and, today, scavenging Jon’s grandmother’s vintage ornament collection. I already can’t wait to decorate for next year. Here’s hoping you all had a fabulous holiday, and cheers to great eco fashion [...]

Who wants a free online store?

I do, and I want one for you, too! So much so that I’ve been working every waking hour for the past few weeks to get Storenvy.com launched, the “free online store and social shopping community” startup that I work for part-time. It’s where I’ll launch my Fashion Loves People store to sell my tees, and [...]

All About Katie

Not only will the outfits I style show you some of the best in socially responsible brands and vintage sources, they’ll give [...]

I Bet They Recycled Him Afterward

This week, we’re working for paychecks rather than for the intrinsic benefits of blogging. Good for us, bad for you. (Grin.) Enjoy Paper Darren, but if he’s not enough, Coldplay just released a video for Strawberry Swing that’s up the same alley. See you next week! jc

Unofficial Getup: Accessorizing with T-Shirt Ring Ties

This is from Janette rather than Katie, posted while I’m on a visit to Austin, but I had to share my favorite accessory of the moment… T-shirt ring ties! I had so many of these in elementary school, and I think most were neon. My friend Rachel gave this gold one to me for Christmas [...]

10 Ways to Support Charity Through Social Media

This particular post is a collaboration between that series and Mashable’s Summer of Social Good charitable fundraiser, and it is being simultaneously published across more than 100 blogs. Social media is about connecting people and providing the tools [...]

About Me < About Us

Hi. I’m Janette, and this is my blog. I’m a freelance writer, writing Fashion Loves People in my spare moments of free time. I started it almost two years ago as an outlet for sharing the socially friendly fashion brands I was researching for my own use anyway, and since Day 1, I’ve loved every [...]

John Lennon on Using Celebrity Spotlight as an Ad Campaign

“Yoko and I, when we got together, we knew that whatever we did was going to be in the papers. So we decided to utilize the space we would occupy anyway by getting married with a commercial for peace.” Strategic. I like it. A lot. (Just finished watching the 1988 documentary Imagine: John Lennon.)

Masking Tape

I saw this twice this week and liked it for some reason — masking tape to hang stuff up. It’s not permanent or pretty, but it’s temporary and cute. And sometimes that’s okay. Top image via A History of Architecture via Le Bouton Studio. Bottom image via ellybeth on Flickr.

Pop!Tech, Social Media and Such

I was fortunate enough this week to be able to write a guest blog post for Pop!Tech — “a one-of-a-kind conference, a community of remarkable people, and an ongoing conversation about science, technology and the future of ideas.” I wrote about things not particularly relevant to Fashion Loves People, but if you’re into social media, [...]

Mixing Old and New: Hudson Hotel NY

My brother is planning a trip to NYC and just sent me a link to the Hudson Hotel in Hell’s Kitchen. I checked out the “visual tour,” and the interiors are blowing me away. Designed by Phillippe Starck and Ian Schrager and opened back in 2000, the Hudson’s look accomplishes exactly the pairing of ornamented [...]

My gift to you: Polyvore

Polyvore is beautiful and magical. Choose from separates and accessories to create perfect outfits. Even text and textures to make art! (I may or may not be working on a mumu haiku.) You’ll LOVE it. (Almost as much as I would love to receive these Minnetonka fringe boots for my birthday. Size 8.)

Sustainable gastronomy: Better eat your bugs

I ate a bug yesterday. Yep! A month or two ago, I’m not sure I would have… but now eating bugs is hot. Thanks to David Gracer for enlightening us! I totally dug my salt-and-lime dehydrated grasshoppers from Mexico: A nice smoky flavor and very manageable texture. Chocolate-covered would be even better. Note the sexiness [...]

You say you want a resolution

Brief digression here, but I’ve been thinking about resolutions. Rather than making cliche statements about how we wish we were different, let’s really do something this year. (I’d say “get off our butts and,” but there happens to be no standing up required.) 2008 New Year’s Revolutions: New, improved and delivered straight to your Inbox! [...]

For my beard-loving boys

As if you needed any excuse to let your facial folicles loose, Men’s Vogue writer Amanda Brooks is on a mission to bring back what she calls “uptown beards” — the well-groomed like. Check out her collection of vintage chin strap pics on her blog “In Her Eyes.” And who could resist the Paul Newman [...]
