Thursday is going to be a big day. Not only am I flying to New York City for BlogHer, the coolest blogging conference ever (not that I really know – it’s the only one I’ve ever been to) but I’m also going to a party at Martha Stewart Omnimedia!!!
Martha Stewart!! I’ve been reading her magazine since it first came out in the early 90’s. As a passionate crafter and a good food lover, she has provided me with endless inspiration and yes, sometimes frustration (how can she make it look so simple?) Why did she invite me, a B-list green blogger to her party? Probably because I reviewed her line of eco-friendly cleaning supplies and I’m big on DIY. Whatever the reason – I am thrilled to be invited! Will the diva of craftiness actually show her face at the party? Not sure. But I’m bringing a copy of my book for her, just in case!
Of course this begs the million dollar question – WHAT TO WEAR in NYC – the mecca of the fashion world?? This girl’s highly thrifted, Midwestern wardrobe needs some serious help! Ironically I was offered a chance to be ‘outfitted’ for BlogHer by a well-known clothing retailer but since their organic offerings were nada, I politely declined.
Call me crazy.
Instead, I reached out to a super cool, sustainable clothing company called Stewart + Brown. They kindly agreed to provide me and some of my green blogging friends some stylish eco-friendly clothing to show off at BlogHer!! We will be tweeting about our sustainable style during the conference using @stewartbrown and #stewartbrown if you would like to follow. If all goes well (meaning the package from S+B arrives in time), I will
be wearing a super cute Stewart + Brown tank dress to Martha’s rooftop party
and to the Green Blogger Soiree on Thursday evening!! Stay tuned for more about this fab company (and photos!) coming as soon as I get back!
Meanwhile, I’ve been rounding out my wardrobe with some new-to-me tops from Second Debut, our upscale Goodwill, and I’ll be packing my brand new homemade earrings as well. And check out the necklace I just made to match one of my new shirts…look closely and you will see that the green glass circles (repurposed from an old necklace of mine) are the same size as the circles on the shirt. Even Martha ought to approve!
