Eco Fresh and Eco Fancy

July 30, 2009

Everyone loves a good recycler, and everyone loves a good item of clothing or accessory made from recycled materials.
But what everyone really loves is a combination of that and a nice do-able price.
You know those jersey necklaces from Urban Outfitters made from old t-shirts?

Awesome; they look fierce as shit.
However, as they are priced around $40, it’s a little fierce on your wallet (or the money pocket in your golden belt pouch.)
Sooooooooooo guess what I found?? Well, i was hittin’ up good old Etsy, and this fantastic shop arose from the plethora of cute kitsch closets native to the site.

This one is my favorite.
It doesn’t have as many jersey chains attached, but is conveniently priced at $12.


The sweet red tassle necklace is $20.

I especially like this from her decription- “This necklace feels like a dream. As if silky soft bunnies decided to take a small nap on the back of your neck. how nice.”

=] There is good in the world.

Remember that lipstick scarf from H&M?

“Often the term implies that the wearer grows only upper-lip hair while shaving the hair on his chin and cheeks. Growth of all facial hair would constitute a beard.”

“Life is beautiful. Really, it is. Full of beauty and illusions. Life is great. Without it, you’d be dead.”
