Eco Style West Vol. 17

Sustainable style news from EcoSalon’s West Coast fashion correspondent.

Giddyup to Gumps – From Hermès and Ralph Lauren to Gucci’s signature snaffle bit, drawing fashion inspiration from the equestrian set is nothing but good horse sense. EcoSalon favorite Jendarling’s latest line of eco-chic traveler clutches and pouches will be part of the EQ show opening this week at San Francisco’s iconic department store, Gump’s. Running thru August 14th, the eclectic showcase of horsey-inspired artisan goods is sure to satisfy all sorts of riding enthusiasts. If that doesn’t have you chomping at the bit to get down there, I don’t know what will.

Lolo Land – For all those locavores looking to find the latest designer duds from fashion lines from LA, Seattle and Portland check out the newly opened House of LoLo in Portland’s Pearl District. Blending a beautifully edited selection of vintage inspired looks with the perfect tee and jean staples, this store offers something more for the too-busy modern bombshell. Individual styling consultations are a courtesy for every client, as owner Laurie Moulton says, “We obsess so you don’t have to.”

Code Style – We love online boutique Future:Standard’s artful mix of ethical clothing accessories, but owner Jessica Althoff knows that the greenest outfit going is one you’ll treasure and keep. On Sunday, July 17, style seekers in San Diego will get the chance to get up close and personal with a fashion expert at Future:Standard’s latest event held at Maida Salon. Jessie Artique, a personal stylist (Style & Pepper) and blogger (the Concrete Catwalk), will be on hand to offer assistance with what to keep or toss, packing advice, and how to develop an enduring style statement. Plus, if there is anything from the site you’d like to try on, let Jessica know and she’ll bring it with your name on it. Currently offering a 20% off code (20HALFBDAY) to celebrate the store’s six month anniversary, there really is no excuse not to splurge.
