Supermodel BFF Bracelet x nOir Jewelry Raises Money For the Horn of Africa

What’s that cute little bracelet all of the models are wearing on the red carpet? Well not only is it fabulously reminiscent of the Crayola-hued gimp bracelets we used to make as kids, but it’s also raising awareness for the famine in Somalia. nOir Jewelry paired up with the model-focused website Modelinia to create the limited edition Beautiful...

The Sustainable Fashion Week Rundown!

New York Fashion Week is officially O-V-A! I basically took a week off from blogging to cover some of the fashion madness. But not for naught – there was lots of buzz about friendly fashion on the runways this year. There was even the first ever (Sustainable) Fashion’s Night Out! Here’s a recap of the designers who...

Best Style Watch Ever! DKNYC Launches Timepiece Collection to Support Female Veterans

When we think about our nation’s military, we are certainly aware of the hard work, sweat, and effort that goes into protecting our country.

Shop! Sip! Support Charity! It’s Fashion’s Night Out in New York City

Buy a Rain Boot, Give a Rain Boot to a Child in Need

Roma Boots Irene’s unrelenting tour of the east coast this past weekend was a clear reminder that hurricane season is still upon us. But protecting ourselves from a little (okay, maybe a whole lot!) of rain doesn’t mean that we can’t fit in a little philanthropy along the way. Roma Provisions is a Texas-based company...

$18K Flip Flops Help Conserve Endangered Rainforests (David Palmer x Chipkos)

Chipkos East coasters can already feel the fall approaching. So, we’ve begun compiling our winter wardrobe “wish list,” soon leaving thoughts of open toes – or open anything – behind us.
