not only for women

Today I read a headline saying that Hugo Boss is going green. I was astounded. But when I read on, it became clear that it was just a publicity stunt and that it was about a collection with a golfing theme and that it was only named after the green (the grass on which they play golf). I was so disappointed, and even more so because male fair fashion ain’t that easy to find (at least I haven’t found anything for my boyfriend).

So maybe it’s time to take action and demand the greening up of men’s wear. ’Cause why should green shopping stop at the women’s department?

put your sixties mood on!

Kermit the frog once sang ‘It’s not easy being green’ and he’s totally right. Luckily it’s becoming more and more easy. And know you don’t have slip in to inelegant underwear. ’Cause Peau Ehtique ables you to wear glamourous knickers, bra’s, undershirts (sorry, I don’t know how to call them) and slip dresses made form organic cotton. So get into your sixties mood and put on these lovable panties! For more info, check out their website.

i wish…

Remeber me telling you guys about a way to shop in celeb closets? Well, I’ve found some amazing items (though still unaffordable). Look and get inspired 😀

How about there amazing Louboutins? They look classy and can prep up any outfit. It’s from one of the editors of the site, so a bit disappointing, but still… These heels are to die for! Retail price is $532,- but they’re going for $ 300,-. A bargain, eh? (And curious? Take a look on the page and good luck!)

And if you’re not so keen on heels, check out these ballet flats.  They’re Guiseppe Zanotti’s and for $ 375,- (retail $ 680,-) they’re yours. My fingers are tingling above my keyboard. Yours? (You can buy them here)

Finally I found these wonderfull jeans. Unfortunately I’m no size xs (not nearly) but if any of you is, don’t hesitate. For only $ 89,- these jeans worth $ 224,- can be yours.

Hope you’re convinced that it’s a cool site! Hope that some Dutch famous people will join soon! (Or else it will still be expensive because of shipping)

surprise!

Don’t you just love how every moment can give you a surprise? Was just surfing the web and came across the website of the Dutch Grazia. Recently they opened their own store selling some of the clothes which appear in the fashion shoots. And you know what I found there? An amazing trench with a lovely colour: grey with a shimmer of green. Ain’t that spectacular? And even better: you get a 20% discount if you buy it at the Graziashop! You’ll need the discount code graziashop01. I still can’t get a hold on how great it is that a fashion mag displays such a great concept!

green shopping in amsterdam and rotterdam

About a few weeks ago I told you guys about a guide to shop green in London. And now I’ve found similar books about Amsterdam and Rotterdam. You can order them online or buy them in bookstores in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. I know I’ll be making a trip down to the Coolsingel. Do you have a tip so we fashionistas know where to shop green? Let us know!

shop green in your favourite store

I’ve talked about sustainable clothes a lot. But sometimes you don’t want to leave the high street to get your doses of fashion. Fortunately regular stores also have a sustainable line. To be sure your favourite shop is also into green fashion, here’s a list with the labels to look out for.

The all Dutch shop HEMA has its own line called Naturally HEMA. It features clothing made of organic cotton, bamboo or clothes made with an organic process, coffee and tea with Rainforest Alliance Certificate and Fair Trade mark. And it also has gifts made by special projects; the products of Return to Sender are made by people who don’t have much chances in live and the money it makes goes directly back to the makers.

C&A has clothes made with bio cotton. I know I have a cute grey tee with a little print. And just yesterday I saw an ad on the TV telling us that they have both shirts and jeans. How nice! C&A aims to increase what they have to offer of bio clothes.

H&M recently came out with their Garden Collection. I wasn’t so fortunate to score the dress I loved at first sight. That collection was totally made out of organic wool/linen, recycled wool/cotton/polyester/polyamide and tencel. Also they always provide you with some nice bio cotton products. Hopefully the Garden Collection will have a return!

Hope I’ve made green shopping a little bit easier. I’m sure I’ve missed a couple of things, so be sure to let me know where you do your green shopping!
