I was really disenheartened when I saw a girl wearing a "Live Green, Support Your Earth" shirt that she got at Giant Tiger. The earth would've been so much better off if you hadn't bought that bloody shirt! I've already posted on my dislike of those shirts but today I'm offering an alternative. www.simpleshoes.com is a website where you can buy quality shoes and backpacks that are made of natural or reused materials. The shoes for sale aren't exactly Christian Louboutins, but they're far more stylish than orthopaedic shoes. In my opinion at least.
I think these Mary Janes are cute, the pattern reminds me of the Patrick Robinson for Target collection. The soles are made out of old tires, the lining is bamboo and the outer is cotton. For $85, I'm definitely putting them on my Christmas wishlist.
The backpack isn't so stylish, but it looks like a good blank canvas for customization. I'd love to get my hands on it and put pins and patches all over it. Since it has a cushioned inside for laptops, it would be a great buy for University-goers. Looks like this is going on my Christmas wishlist too!
Kate Moss and Irina Lazareanu wear moccasin boots...you should too! Even if they look bizarre in the picture. These boots are like Ikea furniture, because you have to assemble them yourself! Yes, they even come with an instructional video on how to sew them. Wicked. I already have moccasins, so these poor folk will not be included in my wishlist.
Is it too early to be making a Christmas wishlist?
P.S.: Just for fun, what I wore yesterday. It looked more stylish in person, swear.
