Summer Sales

I actually like to pay full price for things, because then I know everyone making money on the item got paid what they’d planned to get paid. (Which was, ideally, a fair wage at every step of the way.) In theory, when stores make all the profit they want off an item, they’ll be less [...]

Chicago’s Pivot Boutique: Why it’s Smart

Oh, beautiful Chicago — the architecture, the neighborhoods, the parks, the youthfulness, the mob lore… and Pivot. My first visit to Chicago’s only eco boutique lived up to every one of my (high) expectations. The shop is sleek, quirky and just the right size — small enough to feel intimate, but large enough that its [...]

Tee us up, Edun Live

I saw U2 in 2002 on their Elevation tour, and I must say that one of my biggest take-aways of the night was that Bono is a DORK. (Affectionately!) He gives himself emotionally to his music and his crowds, and while Thom Yorke and Chris Martin somehow do this really attractively… Bono doesn’t. But as [...]

Corso Como shoes

What. A. Find. According to Sprig.com, Corso Como shoes are ethically and safely made by hand in Brazil of vegetable dyed leathers, with a portion of each sale going to women’s and children’s charities. These qualities alone are enough to make us love this brand, but on top of that, the line offers literally hundreds [...]

One girl’s trash is another girl’s treasure

The listing for this ring set reads, “Hey Mom and Dad, remember that time I got married really young? Sorry about that. I can’t pay you back for the wedding, but I’ll split whatever I get for these with you. Deal?” The website is ExBoyfriendJewelry.com, a pretty self-explanatory name — users sell unwanted gifts from [...]

“Goodbye for Nau”

I am disappointed and disheartened to let you know that Nau clothing company is closing up shop. With all its heart, smarts, R&D and TLC, we are losing a company with perhaps the most potential to improve the way the garment industry works. As part of its “winding down business operations,” everything at Nau is [...]

Huge sale on Stella

Moment of truth here: I cannot afford thousand-dollar items of clothing. I’d go so far as to say that most fashion blog writers can’t either — but it is quite fun to pretend we can. Which we sometimes do.With facades aside, I won’t be affording any of these beautiful Stella McCarney pieces on sale at [...]
