Be Eco Chic with the Found Objects Giveaway

Found Objects is a creative and unique brand created by Angelica Callanta, a Chicago based designer, stylist and entrepreneur. She not only designs jewelery, but she also creates handbags, including custom designs and reconstructed vintage pieces.

“My aim is to find ordinary objects and morph them into extraordinary yet classic pieces of wearable art. My hope is that my designs convey a seamless combination of sophistication, elegance and fearless street style. When a woman wears ‘Found Objects’ I want her to exude confidence, grace and femininity paired with playful originality.”-Angelica Callanta

I featured some of her recycled leather jewelry from the Aurora line. I found her on Etsy and instantly loved her earth-friendly, hand crafted pieces. Especially the Slash Cuff.

Honor Earth Day with Recycled Jewelery

Maganda Recycled and Revamped Jewelery

Today is Earth Day, a day to appreciate and bring awareness to the Earth’s environment (although we should be doing that every day). Did you know there are so many things you can do to honor our planet?

As a fashionista there are more than enough ways to be fabulous, chic, and green. In middle school, I was taught the three R’s-Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

You can incorporate these three R’s in your every day life…fashionably of course. And if you’re like me…you should start with baby steps, like recycled jewelery. This is when items are reused or reworked into pieces of jewelery. I went on the hunt on one of my favorite sites, Etsy. They are all about handmade items. I found a few sellers below who caught my attention with beautiful and eclectic pieces of jewelery.


Which piece of recycled jewelery is your favorite?

Etsy Find: NewExtrave Fashion

Have you ever dared to buy “one size fits all” clothing? I am seriously thinking about it after seeing these pieces by NewExtrave on Etsy. They not only look comfy, but they look perfect for the summer. Most items are made from linen or cotton, which is super cool in my book. Some can even be custom made. They have tons of great reviews too. Would you try a “one size fits all dress?” If you’ve ever purchased anything from NewExtrave, please let me know.

Vintage Curves: Etsy

Vintage for the Curvy

It’s no secret that vintage clothing for curvy gals is hard to come by. I did a little research and I wanted to share it with you. Here are a just a few sellers on Etsy and the web. Vintage clothing is not only Eco-friendly shopping, but I see it as a great way to find one-of-a-kind high quality pieces for your wardrobe. Read this for guidelines before you buy any vintage clothing.
