The weekend of Halloween is upon us so we begin with 3 edgy and affordable vintage items that could double as costume pieces.


(above L to R) More stylish than scary, the Steampunk Goth Costume Black Crushed Velvet Gown adorned with rhinestone chain; size small; a mere $18. Kick it with vegan knee boots size 9; $22. Go gaga – genuine gold leather blazer/jacket, size M; only $32…borderline cheeze but paired with fabulous fitting jeans or an elegant black skirt and booties; you can’t go wrong.  For vintage, I adore Nancy’s Gone Green secondhand shop.


(above L to R) From LTR Brands, known for using vintage and recycled materials as well as planet-friendly dyed bamboo fibers, (love bamboo’s moisture-wicking ability) – sharp little black dresses; ($99).


(above) Hoops – my favorite easy and smart shape – if you haven’t heard, they’re rumored to somehow make us look thinner.  Handmade in Oakland, California; famous for ethically-made and responsibly sourced materials – scoop up Melissa Joy Manning’s hip sterling silver braids; ($78) @


(above L to R) Uber chic Re:Awakened Gone to Paris hats made from 100% recycled cashmere – only $36…Did someone say, Paris?


(above) Sending you off with a little arm candy from Alex and Ani.  You’ll love these joyful, easy to wear bangles featuring A & A’s signature expandable design; ($108) @

And that wraps-up my eco-style picks for today…wreak havoc and have a wildly wicked weekend.
