Guest Blogger Sara Rust shares her fave green picks.
My favorite type of bag is one I can fit not only my essentials – makeup bag, wallet, brush, planner, phone, keys; but also maybe a pair of flats for after work and the latest NYT best seller. Plus it has to look spectacular, be earth friendly and not have harmed any animals in its making. That’s not too much to ask, is it? Matt & Nat don’t think so. Their gorgeous line of vegan bags uses synthetic leather, recycled suede and range from laptop carriers to clutches!
Bold nail color is in this fall and it’s finally safe to branch out into dark colors other than shades of black. Butter London’s polish in Thames is the perfect shade of green for those of us in regions we can still pull off open toes or on short, neatly filed finger tips. The bonus? All of their products are free of Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP.
Every season needs that one dress that can move seamlessly from the office to dinner with the girls, but is comfortable enough to run the weekend errands in. I would live in this hemp and organic Supima cotton jersey kaftan. Mix and match flats with hoopy earrings, high boots with tights, scarves, statement necklaces, heels – it can do anything!
No bit of leather shall go to waste if jewelry designer Fahmina has anything to say about it. Her line of funky, but completely wearable, feather shaped earrings come in tons of shades. Dress up a T-shirt and jeans or sass up your little black dress.
Cooler weather always gets me in the mood to amp up my makeup application. It’s so much easier to do smoky eyes or a splash of color when you’re not worried about it melting off your face in the heat. Sephora’s Pure line has a great line of basics without all the nasty chemicals and synthetic dyes or fragrances. And to top off the green goodness, they’re packaged in bamboo cases with recycled aluminum.
