It’s a Saturday Fashion Challenge!

Eco Mama – Day 12 Today’s prize?  The world’s best PMS t-shirt — Here it is full size — I got it at Forever 21 and it’s a size large — kind of boyfriend t-shirt style.  You can’t help feeling fierce wearing this shirt.  Put it on for your next parent/teacher conference!  Your next court appearance!  Your next rap concert!  Or maybe just the next time you want your kids to behave in the grocery store. The Question? A long…

Outfit Deja Vu…

Eco Mama – Day 10 This is the outfit I wore to the science center the other day.  I’m posting it again because I wore this outfit again today.  So instead of wearing it while helping my kids with science experiments, just picture me in it going to the post office, soccer practice, picking up kids from school and riding a mechanical bull (I didn’t actually ride a mechanical bull today, but I think it would be more interesting to…

Eco Mama – Day 9 Organic shirt — American Apparel non-organic green skirt — Purple moon.  It’s made of Rayon, but the company swears that by purchasing a Purple Moon product, I am “directly supporting indigenous people from around the globe and helping the economies of some of the poorest countries on Earth.”  So take that organic. Boots — Earth Origins.   I found these great boots on a eco-friendly shoe website called, Planet Shoes.  I couldn’t really find any…

Eco Mama – Day 8 For years I’ve been using organic skin care and it’s cost me a fortune — like I’m pretty sure one of our kids won’t be able to go to college because of my organic rosewater toner.  My favorite product line is Suki Skin care and it’s great, really, just take a deep breath before you see your total at checkout. But since part of my Eco Mama quest this month is to find all organic…

Eco Mama – Day 7 My kids and I headed to the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley the other day and it was one of those outings as a mom you know you have to dress for comfort and durability — a lot of standing, a lot of putting children on your shoulders to see exhibits and since there was a cafe, a lot of ketchup and mustard haphazardly squirted from those giant, maddening condiment dispensers that are designed…

Eco Mama – Day 5 Wow!  Thanks for all your amazing style suggestions!  You came up with some styles that really intrigued me (Posh Eclectic) and others that just terrified me (Indian). I would love to pull the trigger on this and have my kids pick my style for November (we print out the comment section, cut up the suggestions and then pick one from a hat — very official), but there’s just one teensy problem… … My kids are…

Eco Mama – Day 4 Today’s prize?  Some awesome unbreakable Arty Slick jewelry!!!! This necklace got the most compliments of almost any piece of jewelry I’ve worn all year.  All you have to do is put this necklace on with a pair of jeans and black t-shirt and you’ve got yourself an outfit.  Plus, it’s so sturdy, it’s practically toddler proof. The question? What style should I be for November?  I haven’t decided yet and I could really use some…

Eco-mama – Day 3 Thanks for all your feedback about my first organic outfit.  And while I totally agree that buying vintage or used clothing locally is probably the best and cheapest way of going green in your closet, my real quest for this month is to see if an all organic lifestyle can be attained by the average awesome mom. I know how expensive it is to buy organic groceries, but what about organic skin care, shampoo and clothes?…

It’s Organic October!

Eco Mama — Day 1 Do you only eat organic foods?  Did you wear your baby in a sling until they were in middle school?  Do you have a bamboo, free range toothbrush?  Then this is the month for you! I am committing all month to wearing all organic clothing — from underwear to socks to dresses — nothing is going to touch my body that isn’t pesticide free and made by indigent women from obscure countries that I only…
