This Saturday, Broooklyn Pop Up Swap!

Monday, May 24th, 2010

SAT – May 29th – OPENING WEEKEND: SCORE! Pop up Swap!
At Brooklyn Yard.

Saturday, May 29th
Doors: Noon – 6pm
Cover: $3 w/ RSVP, $5 without. RSVP

Score! is not your typical swap. In fact, it more closely resembles a pop-up free store: Attendees donate their goods, volunteers sort and display these items in themed “departments”, and attendees have the option to browse and take whatever they like… for free! It’s essentially a giant party — music, drinks, live screenprinting, photographers taking pictures of stylish “scored” outfits, etc.

This SCORE event will host several curators including Market Publique and NY Bike Jumble.

T-Shirts to help clean the Gulf

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

Shirt by Weebeetwees. Available on Etsy.com

From Weebeetees:

The devastation that the BP oil ‘spill’ is causing on the ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico is tragic. Every day 5,000 barrels of oil are gushing into our waters with no end in sight. With your purchase of the Anti BeePee Tee, all proceeds will go directly to organizations that are spearheading the clean up efforts along the Gulf Coast. Weebeetees’ goal is to raise $10,000 in funds to help correct this massive disaster. With each sale we are closer to our goal of 1000 strong against BP; save a turtle, buy a shirt.

The front says: BP filling the Gulf
and the back says: I’m cleaning it up

Cruelty-free Fashion

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Cruelty-free fashion is where it’s at. I love, love, love Moo Shoes. They don’t just have shoes – they have belts, bags, shirts, sweatshirts and more. They are also vegan owned and operated.

The mens shoe selection is great. If you don’t want traditional combat boots because of the leather – try these! They have a big selection of seriously super cute and high fashion womens shoes too. 

Moo Shoes has a store in NYC or you can shop online at www.mooshoes.com

Fashion can have a conscience

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

I am a big fan of the clothing designer John Bartlett. Not only are his collections fantastic, he has a great blog. I was very excited to read about his recent Vegan transformation. Starting in September 2010 he won’t be using leather in his designs, but instead leather alternatives. BRAVO! Look good- feel good, and feel good – look good.
