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.

Picture 2With one of their showrooms down the street from my apartment, Environment Furniture has been an orGLAMic fave for quite some time.  Now with their Exchange for Change Sofa Project, it just may be time to pony up and replace my old sofa with a sustainable alternative.  (Of course, it is NOT eco-friendly to dispose of perfectly good furniture just for the fun of it!)  Environment Furniture is now offering 25% off their sofas and will pick up your used sofa free of charge.  The Studio Sofa with Peroba Arms, pictured above, would be my orGLAMic choice.  Made of linen and recycled canvas, the sleek lines would go perfectly in my modern living room.  Click here to browse the entire sustainable furniture collection.

ecoskinWhile I love bringing unique items to orGLAMic readers, sometimes there are green items that are just so spot-on that they end up all being reviewed all over the web, yet I can’t resist blogging about them here as well.  This beautiful dress from EcoSkin‘s Spring 09 collection is one of those items.  I love the punchy color and graphic print, that makes this shift dress perfect for a summer’s day at the office or an evening date.  Using sustainable fabrics, all of EcoSkin’s products are made locally in Los Angeles.  Click here to check out the entire orGLAMic collection and find a retailer near you.

Here in Los Angeles, tomorrow is Bike To Work day, and there is no better way to haul the usual suspects (lunch, loose papers, a change of clothes, that book you are going to read during your lunch break someday…) than in an orGLAMic bag from Timbuk2‘s eco-friendly line.  On the company’s comprehensive website, shoppers can build their own bag choosing from a variety of colors and eco-friendly fabrics such as recycled polyester and hemp.  While I was drawn to the simple beige bag offered on the site, I couldn’t resist having a little fun and playing around to create my own masterpiece.  The bag pictured above is my own orGLAMic, Missoni-inspired creation!  Click here to create and order your own orGLAMic messenger bag from Timbuk2.

towelBTC Elements is one of my favorite online resources for handpicked orGLAMic items.  A lot of the vendors are small designers and artists who share the same views on creating eco-conscious products.  I particularly like these Sweet hand printed tea towels that are handmade by artist Karen Young in New York.  They are made of a soy hemp blend and printed with water based non-toxic inks, and go from crisp to soft with wash and wear.  I like the hand-drawn orGLAMic designs, my favorite pictured above, that add a little bit of pizzazz without being garish. Click here to order a set of these orGLAMic towels that are perfect for kitchens or guest baths alike.
