Weekend Reading: American Apparel Is Calling Your Made-in-America Bluff

Weekend Reading: American Apparel Is Calling Your Made-in-America Bluff

I have two podcasts to share this week. First, I’m back on Conscious Chatter with Kestrel, having a friendly debate with Sustainable Apparel Coalition’s Jason Kibbey about whether conscious consumers are pushing fashion forward.

    Sustainable Style: New Year’s Warehouse Party

    Goodness, am I glad that for New Year’s, I didn’t have to go to a club that requires a minidress and heels. There really is no faster way to turn me into Miss Bitchface than to ask me to wobble through sub-freezing temperatures with my legs exposed, then try to dance for hours while fire-y...
