Featuring several vintage objects of desire, today’s collection of sustainable fashion reflects both the practical and quirky — fun bits & pieces to perk-up your summer ensembles. In addition to looking sharp, it’s always chic to keep valuables in circulation and out of the waste stream…of course it’s doubly cool when our purchases help those in need.
