Lara Miller

As we elegantly (and orGLAMically!) transition into fall, versatile pieces such as those found in Lara Miller’s collections are key.  The Meadow Tank, shown above, is made in Chicago of hand-loomed, 100% bamboo.  The sweater-like fabric adds a pop of color during these fall months, but can also be worn well into the winter under a blazer and scarf.  Using eco-friendly fibers such as organic cotton, hand-loomed bamboo, hemp and vegan silk, all of Lara Miller’s designs are beautifully crafted and pass the orGLAMic test with flying colors.  Click here to browse all her collections and here to shop currently available items.

For a refined version of the sneaker, check out all the orGLAMic shoes made by Veja.  Designed in Paris, this company works with small Brazilian producers of organic cotton and wild rubber from the Brazilian Amazon to create a variety of hip, chic sneaks.  The Indigenos made of vegetable-tanned leather would be my choice for any orGLAMic man in my life, as I think they are youthful and refined at the same time.  I also love that could easily transition from work to play to a night on the town.  Click here to browse the entire orGLAMic collection and here to find a worldwide location near you.

If there is rehab for purses, I belong there.  While I try to keep my consumption to a minimum (let’s keep it green, people!) it is nice to know that my splurges can also be eco-conscious purchases.  Erin Templeton makes some of the most orGLAMic purses I’ve found.  The Side Saddle, pictured above, is my favorite among the ten different styles available.  The classic bucket bag is trendy once again, and while the bag shown above is made of buffalo hide, it is also available out of recycled leather otherwise destined for a landfill.  Click here to browse the entire collection, including accessories.
