Susie Bubble, a self proclaimed “fashion outsider” based in London, started her blog Style Bubble a year ago to share her amazingly quirky and unique outfits with the world. Every week Susie takes readers on shopping trips around London, always searching for the perfect vintage piece. And she never misses a beat, covering the spectrum of fashion, from unknown underground labels to Balenciaga. Style Bubble truly reflects personal style, and as Susie says, “I am affected by moments, things I see, seasons and whatever is clean in my closet.” And that is why we love Style Bubble!

Sweden’s hottest new export, pop-band Miike Snow, delivers a bonus track on this year’s re-release of their self-titled debut album. The brand new video for “The Rabbit” is inspired by 2 Live Crew’s epic 1989 album, and features bikini-clad booty shakers who are definitely being “as nasty as they wanna be.” Shot in Kingston, Jamaica, the video features farm animals, crazy colors, beautiful beaches, and oh yeah—an eight-year old with a beard.
There are many eco-friendly brands out there, covering all areas of the market. Organic by John Patrick is one brand the Sam Edelman office is always buzzing about. His spring 2010 collection is feminine and flirty meets school girl chic . And now that summer has arrived and bathing suits are on everyone’s mind, Kelly B. Tizzi is offering eco-friendly bathing suits like this retro-inspired, yellow one piece that we are loving! The options are endless – from the recently launched H&M Garden Collection, to new stores like Kaight, on the Lower East Side, which sells 100% organic apparel.
For those who would rather stay home and shop organic online, try out sites like ecocitizen.com or subletclothing.com for some good finds.
On the other side of the sustainable fashion movement are the vintage goers. Take advantage of the approaching summer weather and make a day of it at the Hester Street Fair in New York City, or the outdoor flea markets in Brooklyn. Have fun with friends and see what the vendors are pulling out for the season.
Whether you wind up buying a garment that is new and sustainable, or buying an old vintage piece, there is always room for some eco-friendliness in your wardrobe! Remember, green is the new black.
