alright nicies!
spring is in the air it's time to style-up our wardrobes in the best possible way: eco-fashion-forward chic!

let's start by making this gorgeous reclaimed fabric drawstring halter-top or dress this weekend in preparation for all the warm weather fun!

heck - this fabulous a la mode tutorial is so wonderfully straightforward and helpful, you'll have time to make 2! or 3!

just play the video above for the how-to.
and as she wisely suggests, you can use an old t-shirt or easy to work jersey knit fabric!
and tada! a gorgeous, eco friendly wardrobe is yours!
yay!

(ps: if you make one, send me a photo of it and i'll post them later on and feature you! yay!)


...............................................



...............................................



like her fabulous tutorial, a la mode recycles & reuses everyday found objects and "transforms them into fashionable art-you-can-wear accessories for the body and the home."

what could be more fun to wear then a gorgeous modern *seat belt* belt? or an industrial hardware urban necklace?






and what could ever be a more functionally fun conversation piece then these gorgeous seatbelt coasters! (wow!) or this chic-er-than-chic seatbelt clutch purse! love it!

indeed, a la mode is taking eco friendly style to a whole new, glamourous and gorgeous level!

thanks for inspiring the eco world with your beautiful artistry!
..................................................

and now...
you can wear your brand-new drawstring halter AND WIN yourself this most gorgeous seat belt mini tote for a
fabulous econight on the town!! woohoo!


a la mode writes: "A mini version of my popular seat belt tote, this handbag is eco-friendly and industrial chic. The perfect size for a night out or running around town, this little bag will go with any outfit -- dressy or casual. Gunmetal grey seat belts are woven together adding beautiful texture to this sophisticated and durable handbag. The seat belts are new, post production guality overruns deemed unusable for the auto industry. Saved from the landfill, they've found new life and usefulness in this great bag."

woohoo eco-style!

  153. Linda is one creative cookie. I like the range of products she has up on her site. Thanks, Linda, for the giveaway.

    I'd love to wear the "Hardware 3 in 1 necklace - loopty loop." It's got a modern sensibility that I appreciate. I'm also a fan of the "no Whining" necklace. It's a good reminder of great advice.
