Chartreuse Chic
for eco friendly fashionistas

Quickly: green box store, green investments


1. Get yourself to your local target (or head to their website) and get this organic Rogan tee right now. It won't be as iconic as the tiger tee will become (trust me, like-minded eco-fashionistas will recognize each other on the streets in 2 years because of that tee) but trust me, once you get it on, you won't want to take it off. The cotton is ridiculously soft (seriously, I could barely stop touching it in the store), the color has a comfortable, warn in feel like it's been in your closet for years, and if you're cooped up studying for the one test that will determine your future career options, you won't want to wear anything else (or maybe that's just me.)

2. After a year of obsessively working on his model, M is finally starting up his green investing fund, and has started a blog about the experience. The firm is called Smug Investments and you can also track his progress on his blog, Smugly Green. Of course I'm biased, but I think green investing is really cool. Not only is it a good idea financially (unlike some fashion and lifestyle purchases, you don't have to pay a premium to invest greenly), but it's just another way to support responsible industries! Anyway, I know M would love the support and feedback of the green community (his financial buddies have given him the thumbs up so far), so spread the word and let him know what you think!

p.s. I know. No posts in a while. Been so busy. But as soon as I come up for air in mid-June: a jean guide (skinnies and bootlegs!), an eco tour through Newbury Street, and some reviews of some of my favorite eco fashion items and eco beauty finds. I promise!
