All garments are made with super-soft, 100% organic cotton, and produced locally in Los Angeles, CA. My goal is to bring forth a collection that is altogether sophisticated and youthful, stylish and sustainable.

My Fair Gift Guide: Holiday 2014 Edition

My Fair Gift Guide from My Fair Vanity

Once again, Rachel of My Fair Vanity has undertaken the great task of featuring hundreds of ultra stylish, eco-friendly products in her second annual holiday Gift Guide. And once again,  I am tickled pink to have been asked to contribute with a few of my favorite gifts for the color lover in your life. This year’s edition has all kinds of helpful guides to help ensure you match up the right gift with the people, from sustainable beauty products to uber-cute baby gear, and even a selection for the tree-hugging nature lovers you know.

Every single item shown has been selected for it’s status as one or more of the following: made in the USA, fair trade, organic, handmade, made in Europe, upcycled/recycled. It’s now easier than ever to gift something that is kind to the Earth and the people living on it. It’s just another reason to feel warm and fuzzy this holiday season.

And last but not least, that is indeed an Aaryn West print on the gilded Gift Guide cover. A big thank you goes out to Rachel for including me in what is becoming a great holiday tradition!

My Fair Gift Guide

My Fair Gift Guide

We may be well past Black Friday, but I have for you a hefty serving of last-minute gift ideas all those Patty Procrastinators out there. (I decided that should be a thing.) And this is not just any list of gift items, ladies and gentlemen. Within the pages of My Fair Gift Guide are over 175 green gift ideas collected by Rachel of My Fair Vanity, along with a small group of guest curators – including myself! It’s a vast offering of eco-friendly, made in America, and fair trade gift ideas that will empower and inspire you to make thoughtful gift choices. Now you don’t have to feel so bad about being so last minute.

It was an honor to be included among such fashionable ladies who are also known for being so kind to the earth. Each one of these ladies picked out things I would seriously love to call my own. This bright yellow journal that Rachel picked out would be perfect for on-the-go sketching. Dominique of Let’s Be Fair picked out these uber-cool letter openers that would make opening credit card statements a little less painful. The city-centric selection from Alden of EcoCult has the cutest tassel necklace from Krysos + Chandi that I would love to sport. This cardigan from David Peck chosen by spades + siLK can shut up and get in my closet right this minute. And wouldn’t these yoga socks, picked by yogi Carissa Ciuca, be the perfect solution to cold toes on the one day a year I make it to a yoga class? Maybe if I had them I would be better about that? Sounds like a legitimate reason to buy them, right?

And then there are my gift picks. For the pattern lover if your life, duh. I was sure to include some of my favorite designers currently contributing to the world of surface design, including the likes of Nikki Strange, Kindah Khalidy and Wind & Willow to name a few. So pick up something last-minute for someone you care about. Or buy something for yourself. I’m pretty sure it’s never too late to do that.

What’s Your Color Mood?

Rachel's Hint of Mint from Fair Vanity via Aaryn West

Have you ever wondered how to incorporate our Monday Color Moods into your own personal style? We teamed up with Rachel of Fair Vanity, a Washington D.C. based blog focused on fair trade fashion and accessories, to bring you a fun style challenge with exactly that in mind…


And it really couldn’t be much easier. Start by picking out a color board to use as your inspiration, and style yourself an ensemble featuring at least ONE fair trade item. This includes anything made from sustainable materials, made in the USA [or your home country, for my international peeps], vegan, organic, up-cycled, vintage or hand-made. Snap a photo to submit by the November 1st deadline to see your style featured on the Fair Vanity blog! Camera shy? We’ve got you covered. Show us your color mood with a crafty collage like the one below.

Rachel chose A Hint of Mint, and even I got in on the action just to show you all how simple it can be [choosing Primary Agenda]. Email your image to Rachel by Nov. 1 to see your style on Fair Vanity, and see the original post for full details and guidelines.
