“The Business of Fast-Fashion”

Below is a short video that briefly explains the business of fast-fashion. I personally believe that fast-fashion is a huge waste and tough on our nation’s economy. I’d love to see more “Made in USA” labels on quality garments that will last years, instead of weeks (or in some cases…just days). If you must toss out a worn out garment, go to your local clothing recycle bin or just donate to a thrift shop. Instead of shopping at H&M or Forever21, make an adventure out of going to your local thrift shop or vintage store… I can guarantee that you’ll likely see or be able to piece together the exact same look that’s in those retail shops…but the quality is better and the prices are more affordable.

CHRONO PLASTIC FROM SWATCH FEATURES TEN PLASTIC-FANTASTIC DESIGNS WITH MOOD-ENHANCING COLORS

Swatch’s ever-growing global fan base desires and deserves a constantly changing choice of watches to adorn the most on-trend wrists worldwide. Ensuring these enthusiasts are regularly stimulated and surprised is, of course, extremely important to the iconic Swiss watch and jewelry maker, evidenced by the regular unveiling of new Swatch collections which always disclose dynamic details, cool colors, fun-packed fashionability and stunning styles.

Chrono Plastic is no exception to the sky-high standard long-established by Swatch. Produced to the finest levels of technical excellence, demonstrating the attention to detail and innovation that characterizes all Swatch products, this collection of ten new watches boasts a sumptuous and ‘must-have’ selection of soft hues and hot colors all designed to delight in different ways.

Combining the sleek mix of solid plastic and silicone – with which Swatch has famously revolutionized the world of watch-making – each time piece within the Chrono Plastic collection asserts a dynamic visual statement in its own right. The ten watches are offered in a versatile palette of either classic and restrained black, light brown, grey, anthracite or white, as well as more fiercely eye-popping colors such as orange, red, blue, bright pink and light blue. Furthermore, to create double-the-impact, all the watches feature crisply printed digits upon their dials, in colors that contrast subtly or dramatically with the overall shades used throughout the 42mm diameter cases and straps.

Fantastically-plastic and ultra-modern, the Chrono Plastic collection proposes numerous ways in which different moods – whether calm, sporty, urban or extrovert – can be expressed with different colors resonating from the latest designs created by Swatch.

DIY Fun with JewelMint!! (sponsored)

I was excited when I had the chance to work with JewelMint, a members-only site dedicated to only jewelry, which is designed by actress-Kate Bosworth and stylist-Cher Coulter. They issued me two credits to choose two pieces to rework. I chose the “Nicolas” necklace and the “Be the Change” bracelet and worked my magic, transforming both pieces into two eclectic necklaces that are great for day and evening! Since I needed some chainage, I went to Forever 21 and bought a few necklaces with several silver chain (since I’m sorta broke, but can still afford to buy Forever 21. Thank you for offering affordable jewelry!) I also found a tassel and the perfect shade of white rope at Jo-Ann Fabrics, and rummaged through some knick-knacks and found some fabrics and wire to embellish the necklaces. So then I played around with the chains and finally decided on the right design. I must also say that having a dress form is a life-saver for jewelry-making! It helps me determine the correct length, drape the chain and make any necessary design changes. I’m excited to wear my new “JewelMint x LAFashionsnob” creations to my next big event!

To celebrate this fab collaboration, JewelMint is offering YOU, dear readers, 50% off your first purchase on the site. The code is: BOCT50 and can be accessed HERE until October 31st.

WHOOGA- The New Ugg

Just because summer is almost here, doesn’t mean you have to to give up the warm and fuzzy. We still get days where it’s just downright cold and we have to dig through our closets for our winter gear. I don’t know about you, but when I get cold, I want to put on the warmest pair of boots available. I just heard about the latest brand featuring Whooga uggs- Whooga. They were created in 2004 and offer Australian Merino sheepskin boots in a variety of colors, sizes and are available to men, women and children. What sets Whooga apart from the other ugg boot brands, is that they use the trademarked ThermoFleece technology, which provides extra warmth and comfort for your feet. Sounds like heaven to me!

Whooga has been kind enough to offer LAfashionsnob readers 10% off the boots on their website for ONE WEEK starting April 20th. Please use the code: 1631LAFASHION at checkout.

Also, don’t forget to “LIKE” them on Facebook! They have a drawing every month for a FREE pair of Whoogas!
