Au So Naturel

BY Mollie Wells in General |

Okay, that's it--I am now officially in love with Summer Rayne Oakes. Let me count the ways: Her modeling work is totally activist-based. She's a Cornell grad, Udall Scholar and Natural Wildlife Federation Fellow. She works closely with the Discovery Channel's Planet Green, writes for the Huffington Post and even created a pilot program called ECOFASHION 101 that engages K-12 students in environmentalism by linking it to their traditional curriculum. Seriously, her ... Read More
Peep this! Not only are the artists featured in this show all amazing in their own right, but a bunch also happen to be friends of mine and subsequently the raddest dudes on the planet. The show kicks off at 4pm, Oct. 11 with the film 'Braddock, PA in Context', and moves into what very well may be the last BBQ of the season. 6 o'clock hits off with the art sale, raffle, and general schmoozing. Be sure to buy stuff, as the show is benefitting Transformazium, an ... Read More
Whenever I'm on my period I am constantly digging around the bottom of my overstuffed bag hoping to find an O.B. tampon, but ThreeGreenApples makes such adorable cloth 'Pursonal hygiene cases' they just might convince me to be more organized. The Pursonals have cute little pockets for pads and tampons, and come in regular and mini-size. It's like a trapper keeper for your ... Read More

Garbage Palin Kids!

BY Dawn in General |

How awesomely cool are these retro-inspired patent hidden wedge boots from our friends at 80%20 Shoes ?! Their signature hidden wedge gives a classic boot a totally novel look. I'd rock these babies with brightly colored over-the-knee socks and a 60's baby doll dress! They're so city, so chic, so cute! xo-Mara ... Read More
Okay, fine, maybe it's slightly early to start gushing about Halloween goodies, but cut me some slack here: I've had my costume planned since June (Winona Ryder at the very end of Heathers), and I started compiling a list of sweet spooky stuff sometime around August. At the top of said list? Two's Company Boo! Boo! Bandages --totally intended for kids but adored by accident-prone adults like me. A 30-pack comes assorted with ghosts, webs, skulls and bats, all of ... Read More

The GirlieGirl Army!

BY Dawn in General |

The GirlieGirl Army newsletter is kind of like your friend's older sister who wouldn't be caught dead in fur, knows who the hottest band is before they hit the airwaves, (and maybe even dated the drummer), and scours vintage stores like lunatics. The GirlieGirl Army is a crew of girls, (and guys!), who like cheap couture, pop culture, tasty vegan eats, feminism, and art happenstances. They get the word on what's hot before it hits your favorite blog. Trend ... Read More
