Not Too Late To Go Green In Fashion ~ Linda Loudermilk!

Linda Loudermilk's collection includes Oeko-Tex certified linen (from the flax plant, which requires little or no pesticides or fertilizers to grow) and organic cotton (pesticide- and fertilizer-free) jersey.
This high-end eco-designer based at Los Angeles, uses sustainable fabrics such as soy- and corn-based fibers. She has even created women's separates made from an antibacterial Japanese fabric called sasawashi. She also has a more chic, luxury eco line, which sports rock n' roll edge, made from seaweed and cellulose called seacell - which releases vitamins and nutrients absorbed by the skin!! Now you can't say that Beauty is as shallow at its appearance! :) (Intro. courtesy of WWW)

I was eyeing this suit since Feb. but didn't take the plunge to buy it. Even now I bought it, I am still trying to justify its price. The SA thinks this suit is timeless and I can wear it forever. I can't argue w/ her. The slightly muscular shoulder is what's all about this f/w until 2010. I think I will be able to get around w/ the jacket in the future w/ a little alteration if big shoulder is not a hit anymore. :)

I will do a better MOD pic. after I alter the pants. The waist is too loose even w/ size 8 in Brit. which is equal to size S in USA.

I love this black suit has a sheen to it. So glamorous!!

The jacket has asymmetrical design for its collar and only one side has the pocket. So fun!

well, no matter where you go,a jacket always gives people a "serious" or "so stylish" impression. I normally don't think I am overdressed as I am overload w/ everything in terms of life, kids, house work, even exercise 4 or even 5 times/ I just like to be overly loaded about almost everything. hahah...........

Sure, I will check it out. Oh, yap, you should, so I don't have to go throu. everyone's "chat" and focus more about things we liked to talk about. You know, i don't like sweet is sometimes just too much!!! haha... you know what do I mean!!! *<*

Hi R!! Love your new jacket! So "wet-look" and sophisticated! Can't wait to see how you mix and match it. I haven't heard about this brand at all. So, I guess there are a lot of contemporary local designers in the US who are good, right? Yup, do post more so that we can learn. I tend to only know about European and Japanese I'd love to know more about American designers too. I think they sometimes have good stuff.

Oh R, I saw your other post on the McQueen clutch+gloves and shoes. I think they are so cool! And it won't be too much at all for you. Esp the shoes...go get it. The silhouette is very nice. :D

Haha...I know about you know about "sweet talk" at tPF.

So, are you still going to Switzerland end of the year?


**Wave** to Julia!! So you started your blog too! Now I can visit your blog more often. I like reading blogs more than tPF...hahahahaha! It's more organized and user-friendly. (I've started a blog too a month ago, but I only posted 1 time and completely abandoned it. LOL!! Blogging can take up so much time though...hehehehe.)

Welcome to the blog world!!

Hi, eve:

You don't say!!! Now I can understand that you must catch up soon!!! hahaha......

You are welcome and it looks you had a great time w/ family vacation!!!

Oh, hi, Michelle:
Thanks. I love that jacket, and it looks so leather-like in the pic. but it is linen (made from Bamboo). They did some treatment on linen and I don't have to worry a thing about wrinkle. I normally don't buy linen but this is so different!! You know, since I told my friend, Cathy, that some clothes can give "nutrition" (seaweed can help heeling) to the skin, she say I can wear her clothes whenever I have cuts on, it is a joke!!! hahaha....

OH,...well, I don't know since my brother might be married at the end of this year or early 2010. We don't want to spend a fortune on just buying the fare again.... we must plan everything cautiously!! :) Well, Switzerland will always be there!!!
However, I know I def. will plan a trip end of Sept. or before end of Oct. for both Italy & Switzerland next year if we didn't end of going this year!!!!!! It will be nice to visit them both since they are so close by train! :)

Oh, sweet talk, never mind what I said. I am just sometimes very straightforward but I do know once a while I have to give credit to everyone "in the world" since it takes effort for everyone to do anything!! I respect that!! I like decent opinion. Yes, we all do!

Oh, Michelle:
I think Linda Loudermilk is a British. She studies at Oxford but have all her collection made in USA. :) I don't think she is a local American designer!
