Arcadia Boutique is Closing! Time to Mourn.

We've been a huge fan of Arcadia Boutique for years. Full of sustainably-made, local and recycled clothing, it has been a green girl's dream. My winter boots still look amazing after wearing them for years. Once upon a time when I resided in Northern Liberties, there was a period I frequented enough to consider moving in. Their Rittenhouse location closed last year. Yet we received an email that was the worst breakup thus far the other day: Find out more about Arcadia's closing, after the jump.

Philadelphia Fashion Week – Earthly Beauties Eco & Local Night

Move over New York! Philadelphia Fashion Week kicks off tomorrow with an Local & Eco-themed night. This year's show features 29 designers from 9 countries and other theme nights include Student night (Thurs), Streetwear (Fri), and Contemporary Couture (Sat). In addition to seeing awesome fashions, you can also expect live music, DJs & dance performances. Philadelphia Fashion Week is making another eco-first: CMK Entertainment created the 1st mobile application (PhlFshnWk) for a major, national fashion event. Stay tuned about designer times down the runway, designer bios, artists’ performances & sponsoring boutiques with your iPhone, iPad or iTouch! This environmentally-conscious & user-friendly app for Philadelphia Fashion Week App can be found here on iTunes. Creating this app has cut about 75% of the printed material for the event - PFW is expecting 1000 people per night and only created 1000 programs total for the week. (Nice work!) Wednesday's Local & Eco theme is looking promising already! Local tastes include:

Green Guilt: Par for the Course?

I had a recent bout of ‘green guilt' that got me thinking … I just got back from a trip to beautiful Los Cabos (don’t hate me!) - The trip, scenery, company and Mexican hospitality were off-the-charts awesome. The downer…the hotel was not eco-friendly. As in, NO recycling. (I am a strong advocate of checking into hotel policy prior to vacationing. But this time was out of my control. ) Why do I bring this up? The more conversations I have with sustainable minded people, the more I realize most of us experience a little ‘green guilt’ from time to time. It’s tough to act 100% eco-minded. Unfortunately, we’re bound to be in situations now and then where we feel uncomfortable. I felt really guilty knowing my bottles of dos equis weren’t headed for the recycling bin... The truth is harping on this mindset and feeling unworthy because I couldn’t exercise control is counter productive. What’s the best way to overcome these feelings?
