Week in Chic: April 30, 2008

Week In Chic brings together some of the best fashion bloggers on the internet.

Shoesday, April 29th, 2008

Today, I am bringing you a shoe of EPIC PROPORTIONS. The “Molly” is part of the Sui Generis line at Beyond Skin, and is suitable for pinups, goddesses and work-at-home-moms alike.  Just look at this shoe!  Red, with a sexy ankle strap and a four inch heel–this is a vegan shoe that will go down in history.  It is a shoe that people will instantly look at and begin plotting to kill you for.  Yes, my friends, this shoe is ECO-FAB.  It’s also about $600, but whatever.  Consider it an…

It’s all about Priorities

Last year a graphic artist named Nadia Plesner decided she wanted to create something that would increase awareness about the crisis in Darfur.  She was not only dismayed by the genocide of HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of men, women and children, but at the complete lack of interest shown by the west, which seems unable to tear itself away from the Britney Chronicles long enough to see what’s really going on in the world. So, she created a T-shirt that depicted a suffering, starving, naked child carrying a mock-designer handbag and a small…

MyMakeupMirror.com

A few weeks ago I joined a blogging community called AlphaWomen.com and one of the first blogs that caught my eye was MyMakeupMirror.com.  I sent an email to the woman who writes it and found out she actually lives in my city, less and five miles from my house!  Pretty incredible coincidence, don’t you think? Suzann is a freelance writer and a former professional singer, but she is passionate about animal rights.  Her blog on cruelty-free cosmetics is a labor of love. Rather than copy other lists of cruelty-free cosmetics from the…

This Week on Etsy

I found this groovy organic cotton t-shirt with a huge pair of scissors silk-screened on the front.  An awesome gift for someone who sews, does crafting, or even for a teacher.  I really love t-shirts with unique designs on them, but it’s hard to find cool shirts that are also organic cotton.  Offered by circularaccessories. S-XXL.  $28 This wrap blouse is made of soy and hemp, and it not only has a very neutral, earthy vibe but its also extremely feminine.  You could easily wear it at least twice a week…
