ECO Trendy

Cars:
Toyota Prius
$22,175



Honda Civic Hybrid

$22, 600





Cosmetics: All-natural cosmetics from Josie Maran Cosmetics http://www.josiemarancosmetics.com/




Organic Cleansing items from Pangea Organics-these are so natural, you could plant the product and grow herbs...how natural is that!?


Natural Fiber Clothing: Cottons and Linens are the top picks for fashion right now. Companies like Diesel are campaigning to support the need to help with Global Warming. Companies like H&M and Target are jumping into the trend so that there is an easy access to the trend that benefits our planet.

H&M Tee

Organic Designer Jeans from Loomstate

Eating Organic:


Finding fruits and vegetables is much easier than it used to be...you can find items at any nearby grocery store like Safeway and Albertson's or any specialty grocer like Wild Oats and Trader Joe's.
Or just recycle...recycle paper, plastic, and whatever else you can around the house...or clothes...by reselling clothes at places like Buffalo Exchange or revamping your clothes when you are bored with what you have...go to isaac's STYLE BOOK and look under Revamp for more ideas; or go to Jane Magazine or Teen Vogue for more D.I.Y. projects with your clothes.

There are people out there that are not happy that Organics have gone mainstream, but I say that this is a good change in the fashion world to help our planet. We need to still support the smaller businesses that were doing this before it was trendy...but, lets not discount that it benefiting all of us to make organic items available to everyone.

Classy


Have I ever told everyone to watch "Le Divorce?" It is the best example of women wearing scarves...something I haven't embraced as much in my wardrobe, but I love seeing other people wear them...here is another example with Sophia Bush.

This is the reason I had to acknowledge these girls new fashion line...

Olsen Team Fashion



I don't depend on celebs for fashion advise by any means...but, I love to see them flourish in the business...they are creative too you know...and they can always add a great hint of inspiration to a persons fashion life whether the look is put together by the wearer or a stylist.
Today, I read on Vibe Vixen that the Olsen twins will be devoting their fashion expertise from the Wal-Mart line, to finally have an advanced line that reflects their vintage inspired style called, Elizabeth and James...the line truly reflects their sense of style without going overboard...I can see them being on the level of Gwen Stefani...and prices are supposed to be accessible ranging from $40 to $452, which is pretty astonishing to me considering that items usually range from $400 on up:) You can find these pieces at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Intermix this fall.

Fashion Addict


I don't mean to write about Nicole again...but, I just read the article in Bazaar and decided to highlight what caught my interest...


In the near future expect to see:


A Fashion Book on her style

Another Novel on I am not sure what...

Even though I didn't get to read The Truth About Diamonds...I plan on reading one day...


She is launching an accessories line (including, "jewelry, scarves, and yea, sunglasses") all of the things that we see her wearing.


Plus, she plans on going on to clothing too...


I see a lot of potential in her...she has a flair for style and she doesn't care what everyone else does.

VOGUE: INDIA


Am I crazy, or should the 17th edition of VOGUE for India have a fabulous Indian woman on the over and not Emma Ward? Yes, she is a youthful, beautiful, popular model right now...but, does she really sound the alarms of a beautiful India woman? I think not...but, what do I know...it is VOGUE. The issue will be out in September...we will see how the magazine speaks to the Indian woman...or all of us for that matter.

Fashionista: Nicole Richie


Although she is not being styled by Rachel Zoe anymore, Nicole Richie is staying strong in the fashion world. She is shopping, shopping, shopping as always plus, she is gracing the cover of Bazaar (kind of odd, but I give her her fashion props), she is the Guest Editor for Who What Wear Daily (http://www.whowhatweardaily.com/) and Shop Intuition (www.shopintuition.com, sign up for their emails so that you can get their great celeb collages) is following her jewelry trends to sell online...check out all of these fashion trends today...they change every day:)

P.S. My girlfriends and I were emailing about "rompers" today...I think that vintage rompers would be cute to wear, my fashionista friend from NW Savvy (http://nwsavvy.blogspot.com) bought a James Perse version...this is an easy/fun option for the summer.
