Chartreuse Chic
for eco friendly fashionistas

We could all use a security blanket


November, eco-fashion lovers! Can you even believe I haven't gotten a chance to post since July? Whew!

The world has certainly not remained static, even though this blog has. Our political future's looking up, while our economy... not so much. The first time I caught a whiff of the financial crisis to come, I worried that the green fashion movement might start fading from popular view. After all, we can't pretend that responsible clothing doesn't have a reputation for being a luxury item. But you know what? New organic labels keep popping up in my inbox, and old ones are still going strong (and even having a comeback!) I, for one, relish the challenge of shopping less and getting more. Care to join me?

One of the best suggestions for recession-time style I've heard: picking one or two fabulous accessories to spice up your practical, season-less neutrals. Because, let's be honest -- if you're not feeling good about your look, it's not going to be that easy to resist the temptation of throw-away fashion. My suggestion? This eco-lovely scarf, your security blanket for the season to come. It will give your LBDs a fresh, graphic spin and take your weekend denim from practical to punk-tastic. And of course, it's on sale, so you can indulge your green loving side with a little less pocketbook guilt.

Organic Giraffe Organic Scarf $57 from $82. Also available in red.
GOOD B/C: Organic.
