My Beautiful JORD Wood Watch in the New Mexico Desert

We arrived in the desert area of southern New Mexico, known as the Tularosa basin, last week. It’s a beautiful area surrounded by mountains on all sides, safe from the harsh spring weather in the east and early heat of Arizona. Cool air from the mountains keeps the area breezy all spring…summer is another story. We’re in this area for a month, and as turquoise is a stone that often represents the southwest, I kept this in mind when looking at women’s wood watches. When I saw the dark wood tones and bright turquoise face of the JORD Cora watch,…

Eco-Fashion Shopping Tips – Top Brands that Give Back

As you probably know, most companies out there are solely business and profit kind of enterprises, looking out for themselves and their share holders, which is why Street-fashion.net supports indie designers and eco-fashion companies that either erase their own carbon footprint or contribute somehow to the greater good. A few larger than usual companies that do good have come to our attention recently and we were pretty surprised by some. Check out some of these brands and find out more about what they do to help out the world with every sale! Lipstick (Mac): Pop icon, Nicki Minaj, has collaborated…

Natural & Eco-Style Accessories from Rosy Toes Designs

This winter is going to be a cold one, although a late one for much of the country. It will prove wise to start your winter shopping – or winter gift shopping sooner than later for many reasons (if you haven’t already) and you won’t regret spending your shopping money on handmade gifts. An almost certain win for any recipient, items made by hand, with care and skill, will always be more appreciated than something bought in a big box store. My favorite reason to start holiday shopping this year is Rosy Toes Designs. Talented designer and owner of Rosy…

Designer Creates Eco Fashion Human Hair Bags

South Korea-born, London-based fashion designer Tae Seok Kang created an eco-fashion collection of Human Hair Bags using vegetarian leather. Gross you might say? Not to me who won’t wear or carry leather or animal hair. In fact it seems quite ironic that humans themselves would become a part of a fashion accessory, except the method to obtain human hair is nothing like the methods to obtain animal fur. Entitled ‘Sexual Humorous’, the bags aim to explore the “narratives of sexual human body and [address] the question of palpable sensations that manifest from the sexual instinct of human being and the range…

Eco Friendly Fashion Can be as Simple as Just Shopping Savvy

Over the years I’ve been making sure to transition my clothing and jewelry into a more eco friendly collection. This doesn’t mean everything I have is made of hemp, it can be as simple as buying used or vintage clothing, reclaimed jewelry, faux leather – including faux fur, pleather, faux shearling and faux suede, or just making your own clothes more often. You can also shop wiser, make purchases that you know you will use for years and buy quality things that you wont need to donate or throw away soon after buying them. Some of my buying habits are…

Lumi Printing: Print Tees or Art at Home, With the Power of the Sun

I couldn’t be more excited about this. I have always wanted to, and tried to, silk screen my own tees with little to no success and pretty much no interest in really investing in some of the expensive equipment needed to do it right. I was always fine with one or two color prints, using a screen, ink and light in my closet, but as I started to travel around more, this became unrealistic and messy to even consider. Then I heard about Lumi, and although I don’t own a kit of my own yet, I know I have found…

Gucci Plans to Create Biodegradable Sunglasses – for how long exactly?

In a very late but appreciated attempt to join the 21st century, Gucci is releasing sunglasses made from a biodegradable material called “liquid wood” as well as recycled metal and mineral glass lenses. As an alternative to plastic, liquid wood is a composite of bio-based substances, such as wood fiber from sustainably-managed forests and lignin extracted from paper and candle wax during manufacturing processes. Although biodegradable fashion is definitely the future of manufacturing, and designers of all kids will need to (or should have already been) rethinking their effect on the environment through their own production practices, it seems like the larger…

Juma Scarves Are My Winter Dream

I fell in love with Juma scarves before they released their 2011 Collection of beautiful, original and huge neck wear, and with the new set of breathtaking pieces, in a theme of a dreamy Africa… I’m smitten.
