So this week I came across two items that each had such a unique story to them that they each earned a shot at the "Sustainability Award" (I totally made that up) this week.
First up: this awesome Ace & Jig dress. Organic fibers, ethically made in India (where the workers get free child-care and are fed organic produce at mealtimes!), and diverted from the landfill....this is one conscious garment!
Equaly deserving of the made-up "Sustainability Award", but for very different reasons is this awesome tunic dress:
What's so amazing about this top, you ask? This, my friend....
Ok, enough sustainability-preaching (also a totally made-up term), let's just go straight to the fashion candy starting with this awesome shirt dress by Bluebird Shirting:
Here is the shirt-dress's companion, the lovely yellow HD in Paris top:
How awesome is this Marc Jacobs number?
These faux-theater style Camper shoes totally get the enthusiastic-slow-clap-and-approving-head-nod...
So by now you've all figured out that I have a huge soft spot for natural fibers, but most of all: I love me some cashmere! Hello, darlings.....
Not to be out-shined by cashmere as an awesome, natural fiber is SILK. This swooshy Tony Cohen beauty is the perfect every-wedding-and-graduation-this-summer dress.
Over in the Men's section (Yes! We have a great men's section too!), were these classic Clarks:
And to ensure Canadian Content, this awesome dress from local designer Nicole Campre, which I immediately started calling "The Carrie Bradshaw Dress". You know why.
(*You can find more Campre designs at WORKHALL....special, sparkly karma for supporting local, independent stores!)
Now, hold on to your pants....do you know what this is?
It's only an ASTRO-BOY HOODIE!
Complete with pocket and zipper Astro-Boy details to do an '80s childhood justice:
Yup. And now you too can go off to spend half an hour watching old Astro-Boy videos on YouTube.
