Python is Still On-Trend + On Sale Now

This look was mostly inspired by (and taken during) our recent trip to Ojai, CA (we took so many great shots, you'll be hearing about it for just a bit longer).   While I wouldn't call Ojai "desert", it sported an incredible array of succulents, and cacti. The rural desert feel had me working leather, fringe, and print-on-print python. The top is Calvin Klein from last year, and the flats were a recent purchase. A few weeks ago, I posted about 6 Python Shoes for Any Occasion, and caved soon after. I found these Rachel Zoe pointed toe flats on sale at Bluefly.com, and couldn't resist!

Why You Need To Be “Low-Carb”

...and I'm not talking in terms of food. Working in the fashion industry, I see firsthand how much waste it produces. It is the third highest polluting industry after oil and agriculture, a shocking fact that many are unaware of. While "fast fashion" is an easy solution to being able to stay on trend and on budget, it produces a horrendous carbon footprint and is devastating to our environment. I try my best to shop things that are "Made in the U.S.A.", vintage or secondhand (all of which either produce a smaller carbon footprint or none at all), but on Earth Day especially, I am reminded of how much more I can do. Wanting to be fashionable is not an excuse. There are easy steps we can...
