Trend Spotlight: The 80′s are back-Sweatshirt fashion is in full swing

“Sweatshirts are soft, cozy and comfy, but not exactly what you might think of as a fashion staple — until now. Thanks to brands like Kenzo, they come in a slew of different prints, embellished patterns and fabrics (think neoprene, leather and lace) that are far from boring.”- Christina Draper (Glamour Magazine)

Miranda Kerr in Hudson Jeans

Miranda Kerr was photographed out and about in Sydney, Australia on February 16, and was looking adorable as always in a simple yet chic ensemble. Starting with a pair of rose colored trousers (to get the look with denim, try either Current/Elliot’s Stiletto in Rosewood or Hudson Jeans’ Orange Jean Pant in Tangerine, both of which are similar in hue to Miranda’s), the Victoria’s Secret vixen then kept is simple with a white t-shirt (try Wit.’s Burnout Pocket Tee in White) and vibrant turquoise bag (for something similar, check out Julie K Handbags’ Terri Croc in Turquoise). A pair of nude heels and a few silver bracelets provided the finishing touches for Miranda’s ensemble.

Celebrity Spotlight : Lea Michele in the row

Lea Michele In The Row

Lea Michele also attended the Hogan by Karl Lagerfeld Spring 2012 presentation in Paris on Friday night.

The ‘Glee’ star is really trying to make it as a front row regular this Spring 2012 season, after attending Jason Wu and Alexander Wang’s shows in New York.

On this occasion she wore a black The Row Fall 2011 look.

The black maxi dress with sheer layers and lace totally overwhelms her.

Even though she played down the look with simple black peep-toes, the dress is so baggy that I don’t even think a belt would’ve saved this look.

7 Eco-friendly Fabrics

From hemp to bamboo, these are the threads that do right by the earth…

Silk
First developed in ancient China, silk was so coveted that the emperors tried to keep the knowledge of silk production a secret. Silk is a natural, breathable, and warm fiber which is obtained from the cocoon of the silkworm and woven into an incredibly strong fabric.

Hemp
Hemp fabric is eco-friendly because it doesn’t require pesticides to grow, plus it’s incredibly durable and therefore wears extremely well. Designer Deborah Lindquist makes a great hemp pant.

Cashmere
A superior natural fiber unmatched by any synthetic fiber for its brilliant qualities of temperature control, fire resistance, stain resistance, endurance and much more. Wool stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter, repels moisture, and resists odors. A great design from nature!

Recycled fabrics
Recycled Fabric is a 100% Post Consumer recycled raw material that is revolutionary in its inception as well as its potential. The polyester fiber is made from recycled soda, water, and food containers. It can also be combined with other fibers for comfort, easy care and durability. Complete the cycle… buy recycled !

Organic cotton
Sometimes a fabric needs nothing more . . . but something less. Take the case of cotton—a natural fiber whose cultivation has, for the past sixty years, entailed a massive use of toxic chemicals. Organic cotton lets the earth bypass huge amounts of unnecessary chemicals and toxins (1/3 lb. of chemicals is required to produce 1 pound of cotton). By buying organic cotton, you can smile knowing that you are reducing the toxic effects of pesticides in the environment.

Tencel
Tencel heralds the beginning of a new age in fiber technology. Tencel is a pure and natural cellulose fiber derived from the renewable resource eucalyptus wood. The wood used comes from tree farms that practice sustainability. Completely natural, a major breakthrough was made with the development of the unique nanofibril structure of this fiber. What this simply means is, it is: soft as silk, strong as polyester, cool as linen, warm as wool, and as absorbent as cotton. Quite simply a “break-through” fabric.

Bamboo
Bamboo fabric is a natural textile made from the pulp of bamboo. It is naturally porous and highly water absorbent, able to take up to three times it’s weight in water. In bamboo fabric, this translates to an excellent wicking ability that absorbs moisture and pulls it away from the skin, keeping you cooler and drier than synthetics or cotton.
