Once upon a time there was... A Green Beauty by Greta Eagan

9X9A0473 copy.jpg

For those who are actively engaged in the eco beauty and fashion scene, you will recall the emergence of A Green Beauty... first as a blog, then an online e-zine. But now, we have the luxury of thumbing through the recycled pages of A Green Beauty the print magazine (available online and at your local Whole Foods). Amazing! As an author with a book out there, something shifted inside me, and instead of devouring everything in a digital medium, I found a new respect and love for print. I was beyond thrilled when the Editor in Chief of A Green Beauty, Mara Schiavetti, asked me to pose for a feature in her first print edition. 

The shoot was one of my top five favorites of all time and the images some that I feel truly depict me (and not some made up version of me). The art direction comes from a truly talented team and the representation of fashion and beauty within each edition is unparalleled in the eco beauty and fashion space.

As you can tell, I am a fan! And, I am a HUGE fan of this publication existing in print- where I can collect each edition and stack them in my archives for future reference (like Nat Geo for eco fashion!). The purpose of this post is twofold: one, to show off the amazing feature they ran on me and Wear No Evil (thank you!), and more importantly two, help raise awareness for the magazine and ask your support to keep this level of print production going. Click through to the Kickstarter page to pre-subscribe to the magazine and help support its production in the year ahead. Every backer counts, so if you feel at all moved to do so (and you can envision these beautiful and tasteful magazines casually placed around your home eliciting a knowing and intrigued nod from visitors... which I've already tested this and they do) become a backer today

Miami Weekend Getaway by Greta Eagan

This past weekend I took a break from the beautiful fall foliage and exchanged it for sandy beaches and eighty degree weather. I've only ever been to Miami three times, but each time I go I thoroughly enjoy being there. I love the weather, the tropical island attitude of Miami Beach, and the slower pace of life. The fashion scene is fun to play with too! Lots of flowy dresses that reveal just the right amount of skin, and a touch of glamour with metallic accessories.

Good Homemaking Accessories by Greta Eagan

Recently, I cashed in my nomad ways and began making a home. Of course I'll still travel, but it feels so incredibly good to set up a home base. And with that comes the process... What kind of home do I want to make? What is my decor aesthetic? Plus, I get to pull inspiration (and sometimes pieces if I make room to bring them back in my suitcase) from all the wonderful places I've been. While the big decisions (furniture and built-in shelving) are underway, I find myself gravitating to the finishing touches and color or pattern adding accessories. These are some the things that caught my eye. What accessories for your home are you loving? Share links in the comments! I am on the hunt.

Fall Fashion Re-Boot: Top Three Ankle Boots by Greta Eagan

Step forward into fall fashion with confidence. All you need is a stylish pair of ankle boots. The ankle boot is the perfect transition shoe into cooler temps as you can wear it now with a floral dress and leather jacket, and later with skinny jeans and an oversized coat. These are my top three picks to help you enjoy the view from wherever you stand:

MEDINA II BOOT, Sorel, $225. This boot is the best of both worlds- style and a heel to help give you some height, but also grounded with a gripping rubber sole to keep you sure-footed on the snow and ice. Perfection. #fairproduction #corporatesocialresponsibility 

LELA ROSE FRINGE BOOT, Fortress of Inca, $190. The embroidery and fringe set this classic pair a part. #handmade #fair #madeinPeru

STAR BOOT, Freda Salvador, $595. If there was ever a designated 'it girl' boot, this would be it. Fashion forward with a nod to rock n' roll with metal details. These are an investment that are sure to deliver year after year. #fair #artisan #madeinSpain
