As we all know, today is St. Patrick's Day.
I went to sleep and woke up without a clue of what I'd write about today so I thought I'd begin sourcing editorials for a variety of stylish green pieces. ...Can you say, "no bueno!" ..That definitely didn't work out and I suppose I was quite fortunate.
The whole thought of the color green being correlated to the holiday sort of made me anxious to literally do a green post. However, we all know that one can be GREEN without actually wearing green duds. Take designer Stella McCartney, for example. After reading about her in "The Teen Vogue HandBook" I've learned that she lives a very eco-friendly life & also incorporates this lifestyle into the design and production of both her collection and organic beauty line, Care.
The Earth Ambassador, as the handbook refers to her, has been an advocate against the use of fur and leather from day one. When asked about her stance on animal products in fashion, she basically explains that the act is one that she could never begin to comprehend and describes it as "medieval and barbaric".
Stella has also provided TIPS on how we all can live an eco-friendly life.
...But before you head over there, check out her Spring 2010 collection, below.
"The natural environment has always been an inspiration. I try to design in harmony with it"
