John Patrick Organic

Defying my preconceived notion of what an "organic" fashion label would look like- John Patrick Organic is the first green designer that I've fallen head over heals for.

The lines are clean, modern and not at all crunchy.

"It's not cool to be radical about this stuff," he says. "It's cool to just do it and show the ladies who like Chanel that they can also love Organic. And they love it because it's beautiful." (as quoted in November's Vogue)

I couldn't agree more, what do you think?

Vogue's Green Acres

For years, Vogue has been a source of inspiration for me, which is why I was so happy to read their feature on Sloan Barnett in the August 2008 issue called Green Acres.
Her northern California home and her lifestyle reflect an eco-chic sensibility that is both purposeful and beautiful. After her first son was diagnosed with asthma, she found research linking conventional cleaning products and rates of asthma in children. Subsequently, her family has embraced a greener way of life:
-Environmentally friendly, toxin free cleaning products by Shaklee
-Everything they eat is grown within 100 miles of their home
-Dresses her kids in organic cotton clothing

Its inspiring to see such a stylish, successful woman living her life in a green, eco-friendly manner; her book titled Green Goes with Everything: Simple Steps to a Healthier Life and Cleaner Planet is another one to add to my reading list!

Thank you Vogue for a feature that shows that green is gorgeous.
