Meet Gift Guide Guest Curator Amy from the American-Made Guide to Life

Amy from Made in America Guide to Life

The 2014 Holiday Edition of My Fair Gift Guide was a labor of love, and it would not have been possible without the contributions of my fellow eco-bloggers. In the coming weeks, I will be introducing you to some of the guest curators who contributed to the guide. First up: Amy!

Amy lives in New York City and writes about quality items made in the USA on her blog, The American-Made Guide to Life. She loves lip balm, her favorite pair of jeans, hot chocolate, Pilates, and math.

What are your three favorite items from your curated collection and why?

The Tradlands buffalo check plaid shirt is insanely cozy and the fit is perfect. My Bella cashmere socks get a lot of wear in the winter. They're luxurious, soft, and great for wearing with knee-high boots.
But most of all, I love my shearling-lined Bean boots. They keep my feet dry and warm in snowy weather, are reasonably priced, and come with a lifetime warranty.

What is your (latest) favorite ethical brand/product and why? 

 Right now, I'm obsessed with everything from the Faribault Woolen Mill Co. They have gorgeous, well-made blankets, throws, scarves, and accessories. Their recent collection for Target is all priced under $100 without compromising that traditional Faribault feel. They also just launched a small collection of capes and vests that are just divine.

Do you have a go-to or signature holiday gift you like to give? 
I always give my family members a pair of socks and they now request it. The key is getting a pair that is a bit more luxurious or whimsical than the person would get for themselves. There are so many great options in terms of textiles, colors, and patterns.

You can check out all of Amy's American-made gift recommendations to keep warm this winter on pages 24-25 of the Gift Guide: Polar Vortex Prep!

How to Shop Sustainably at Your Local Mall

how to shop ethically at your local mall

For those of you gearing up to get your holiday shop on this month, I give you the Ultimate Guide to Ethical Holiday the Mall. You can make a positive impact with your purchase power this year without ordering online from niche companies sight unseen. Plenty of stores in your local mall carry well-made products you can feel good about giving or getting.

But, first things first: the most powerful thing you can do in any store is ask, ask ask: 

The more retailers hear from their customers that these issues matter, the more they will relay that info to management and seek out ways to provide you, the consumer, with what you want. You hold all the power because you hold the power of purchase.

And now for the shopping fun! Here are several local mall stores that will make it easy to shop ethically this year, and a few of my favorite items from those stores.

Urban Outfitters
{Click to Shop!}

Urban Outfitters Urban Renewal line is made in the USA from upcycled deadstock and vintage fabrics a la groovy new line Reformation. They also carry made in the USA candles and a few clothing brands that make pieces in the USA, like Teeki (just posted about them!), as well as fairly made lines like Ace and Jig.

{Click to Shop!}

Anthropologie carries an array of sustainable, ethical brands. They have an exclusive collection of home goods from weave-masters Ace & Jig, who make all of their signature patterns in a small factory in India where the workers receive free healthcare and work under fair labor conditions-- look for scarves and table runners. They carry several pieces from Antik Batik, a line dedicated to preserving artisan skills and techniques-- each piece is hand-worked or hand-beaded. Last but not least, they carry several eco-friendly and made in the USA candle lines (including my fave, Voluspa).

Top product: their signature, constantly-burning Capri Blue scent-- you know it as "the Anthro smell," I promise-- is made in Mississippi and hand-poured with soy wax, which is cleaner-burning than paraffin and absorbs scent better. These babies burn for a whopping 85 hours for $28, which is one of the best values I have seen for fancy-pants candles.

{Click to Shop!}

A gift from Origins in a wonderful way to pamper any special lady or gent in your life. Their ingredients are plant-based and gentle, and you won't find harsh chemicals or parabens here. In fact, you can read about all of their ingredients right now their site, and their sales reps will be able to answer very specific questions.

Nordstrom has become my favorite department store for many reasons. They carry so many made in the USA, fair trade and ethically-made goods that it's hard to know where to start. But the top items I will be looking for are Voluspa candles, jeans by AG and Paige Denim, and clothes from American-made brands like Wayf (so affordable!) and Bailey44

Bonus: At my location (Pentagon City), I've found that their sales associates are incredibly knowledgeable about their stock and where it's made, so again, don't hesitate to ask. If you're looking online to take advantage of that free shipping (both ways!), you can search any of their departments by "Made in the USA."

Black Friday Bath and Body Works made in the USA

Bath and Body Works
Their bath products may be filled with petro-chemicals and parabens, but their candles are made in the USA, and they make lovely, affordable gifts, especially to bring for the host and hostess of a holiday party.

The list above isn't exhaustive by any means. J Crew, for example, often does collaborations with companies that manufacture here in the USA or that produce handmade goods, for example, mostly in the Men's section.

Eco-friendly, Maternity-friendly Workout Clothes from Teeki

4 teeki yoga pants eco-friendly maternity workout leggings
WEARING:  Teeki Yoga Pants in Northern Lights, made in the USA from recycled PET;
Tank top in organic cotton from H&M's Mama / conscious collection

Sports bra is conventional, but Gaiam makes a similar one for $12 out of recycled polyester from plastic bottles saved from the landfill, just like Teeki pants.

There are a lot of companies out there marketing their exercise clothing to us ladies with growing bellies, but I was pleased to discover that my trusty Teeki leggings proved my most comfortable pair, which meant I didn't have to purchase a new (and very short-term use) item of maternity clothing, which makes me very eco-happy.

You last saw these Teeki Northern Lights leggings a while back when the dancers of Capital Movement Company modeled several pairs with me for My Fair Vanity, and I've been wearing them non-stop ever since then. Teeki leggings will run you $68-$72, but these babies will LAST and are well worth the investment. They've held up beautifully throughout grueling six-hour dance rehearsals, a half-marathon, and countless yoga classes over the last few years, with no signs of wear or tear at all.

teeki yoga pants eco-friendly maternity workout leggings

The key to their comfort is their super-soft, elastic-free waist panel that can be worn up or folded down. You can see from these photos and the ones in this post that the top seam is much lower than your usual leggings, so that it bends where you bend at the hips. Plus, the panel is simply a swath of soft material, so there is effectively no waistband there to squeeze your belly, whether it's full of a full-term baby or a Thanksgiving dinner. I think it's genius, and of course I love their crazy, trippy patterns, which make it fun to get dressed for your favorite workout.

A closer look at some of my favorite Teeki styles:

Ulterior Motive for This Post:

I want to tell my fellow pregos out there that yes you CAN do regular yoga [insert running, dancing, gym workouts, etc]! Pre-natal yoga can be very soothing and is an especially great idea for folks who have never done yoga or who don't practice with frequency, but for those of you expecting mamas with a regular practice, I want to encourage you to continue it and to ignore the crazy people on the internet who seem intent on scaring you into limiting your exercise regimen while pregnant.

I can't tell you how many articles and emails I got from babytime websites on "10 exercises to avoid" or "When Not to Exercise While Pregnant," as if your actual doctor's recommendations might not be sufficient. I'm 40 weeks in these photos, as in 9 months, as in as pregnant as I could possibly be, and I do only a few very simple modifications like knees-chest-chin for all of my sun salutations/vinyasas, and open twists instead of closed. I do cat-cow stretches instead of laying on my belly for cobra or bow pose. I also do this crazy thing where I move slowly and carefully, listening to my body as it changes each week, and modifying the way I move to accommodate what it can do. Some days I can do a lot, and some very little.

Exercise, and particularly yoga, has been key to keeping me feeling good through the toughest parts of pregnancy and to easing any aches and pains I wake up with or acquire throughout the day. I just don't want any of you active ladies out there to feel afraid for one second of continuing to do a form of exercise that you love or that makes you feel good. I continued ballet throughout my pregnancy and I even did some running in my first term  (I had already started training before I became pregnant). I did what I knew that I could, and you can, too!

That said, it is equally important to rest, to let chores go, to sit on the couch and watch Netflix, and to indulge in pregnancy food cravings. It's all about balance, and you know best what you need.  I think that goes for all of us, pregnany or not, right?

The Best (Maternity) Jeans EVER: AG Jeans

3 AG Maternity Jeans for Pea in the Pod Baby Bump Style

I know I just talked about these jeans in my last post about eco-friendly maternity clothing essentials, but it bears repeating: Adriano Goldschmied officially makes the best maternity jeans ever. They are like pajamas that appear to be skinny jeans, I swear. I encourage you to try on AG Maternity Jeans at Pea in the Pod (or regular AG Jeans at Nordstrom and other department stores), all the while knowing they:
  • Are Made in the USA 
  • Use eco-friendly fibers like Tencel
  • Use their signature Ozone wash technique that minimizes use of water and chemicals in their manufacturing process
  • Partner with Charity:Water

2 AG Maternity Jeans for Pea in the Pod Baby Bump Style

I'm wearing my AG maternity jeans with secondhand heels from Reddz Trading and a grey turtleneck sweater I've had forever that happens to be the perfect long length. I'm a little concerned I may be ruining all of the nice long sweaters I have been living in, but only time will tell...

As for the shoes, kitten heels and pointy toed flats are elongating but still comfortable and do-able during pregnancy (for me, at least!), and they've been my go-to shoes for work meetings and date night. Along with my Birkenstocks and high-tops, of course. I'll do my best to try and squeeze in a few snaps of my weekend sneaker-head outfits before baby girl joins us, at a bare minimum over on Instagram, but things are touch and go from here on out folks-- due date is tomorrow!

What {I Want} to Wear on Thanksgiving

I don't know how anything could say Thanksgiving more than a sweater with an eagle on it that kind of looks like a Turkey. Do you?

A Guide to Eco-friendly Maternity Style Staples

H and M conscious connection maternity style

SO. I'm on the home stretch with one week to go (in theory), and I wanted to be sure to show you three eco-Mama items that have been key to my comfort and were a central part of my wardrobe as my belly grew: my Birks, my H&M concscious collection tees, and my AG maternity jeans.

I'll start with the jeans. I tried on several pairs from J Brand, H and M, and more, but as soon as I put on the AG Jeans Stella Secret Fit Belly® 5 Pocket Maternity Jeans, I knew I had found The Ones. These jeans are super soft, and they feel like wearing your most comfortable lounge-around-the-house leggings. Like all AG Jeans, they're made in the USA, but AG also takes a thoughtful approach to their manufacturing, processing their jeans using ozone technology that slashes use of water, energy, and chemicals.  

Full disclosure: As I shared in last month's post, I waited until the very last minute to acquire maternity jeans, but even if I had bought them earlier in my pregnancy, I would probably not have paid full price for an article of clothing with such a short lifespan. Instead, I snagged my pair used from Ebay for about $60.

Next up: The Birkenstocks. Never has there been better cosmic timing (for me) then the resurgence of orthopedic sandals and being pregnant. What you should know about these sandals, though, is that not only are they built to last, but they are made in Germany (thus under fair labor standards) and made out of pretty eco-friendly stuff.  Ana over at The Distillerist outlines Birkenstock's eco-friendliness in more detail here, but I can tell you that the footbed is made of natural latex and upcycled cork, two renewable and non-toxic materials, and the soles are made from EVA, which is a cleaner alternative to the traditionally used PVC.

2 H and M conscious connection maternity style

BAG: Secondi (consigned) 
SWEATER: conventional (ethical options HERE and HERE)
JEANS: AG Maternity for Pea in the Pod, made in the USA

Last but certainly not least is my shirt, which is from H&M's Mama collection. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that almost all of the staple pieces (basic tanks and tees) in this collection are also part of the Conscious Collection, including the striped shirt above, which means they are made from organic cotton. I picked up a few layering pieces in black, white and stripes, and I've been pretty much good to go using the looser fall and winter sweaters I already had.

Meet Naja: Ethical, Empowering Lingerie

2 ethical underwear by naja

Naja is a rare find: beautiful, well-made underwear with an empowering mission and a reasonable price point.

A percentage of every Naja purchase you make goes toward supporting an entrepreneurial sewing program for women through the Golondrinas Foundation. And for every bra purchase you make, you contribute directly to the employment of a single mother. How it works: When you buy a bra, Naja gives you a lingerie wash bag so that you can wash your undergarments, each lingerie bag is made at home by one of the women employed through their Underwear for Hope program.

They also limit use of pthalates, incorporate nylon made from used fishing nets, and (if you take hte at their word) make every effort to produce pieces that are high-quality and fairly priced.

ethical underwear by naja

What I like most about Naja is that they have something for everyone in terms of style, from hippie-chic bohemian prints to their simple, sexy Noir de Noir collection (above).  I also love that they include patterns on the inside of their bras and little messages on the inside of their underwear-- it shows that each piece is truly for you to enjoy wearing, though they are certainly worth showing off for a captive audience, should you choose to.

Full Disclosure: I've not yet tried out any of their products-- I just like what I see. I plan on ordering a pair of their briefs as one of my first post-baby gifts to myself, though, and I promise to let you know how they turn out.

Meet Antik Batik: Super Sparkly Upscale Boho

I have to confesss that until I saw Antik Batik over on ethical fashion retailer Shop Accompany, I had no idea they were considered to be an ethical fashion brand. But lucky for all of us fair fashion lovers, they are.

Founder Gabriella Cortese created the company with the hope of preserving the artisanal embroidering, printing and hand-weaving techniques she saw in her travels, meaning that each Antik Batik piece is handmade by artisans who are expert in their craft.  From what I understand, the brand was a pioneer in its ethical approach, working with qualified artisans in Indonesia, in Peru and then in India in order to manufacture entirely handmade clothes and accessories as far back as 15 years ago, long before it made sense to brag about such a thing.

To me, these are the kind of standout, truly special pieces you could hold onto and pass along to your daughters and their daughters, not to mention the fact that their insouciant sparkle is perfect for the upcoming holiday season (is it too soon to say that?).

Here are a few more pieces I'm coveting:

Black Jeans, Red Flats, Baby Bump {Easy Maternity Style}

black leather moto jacket, pop of color, maternity style, ethical fashion, my fair vanity

This little leather jacket of mine is going to propel me right through fall, I can tell. It just makes everything work, and when you have a ginormous 8 months pregnant belly to deal with, that's pretty impressive.

Here I'm wearing secondhand everything except for the jeans, which are my faves, the Verdugo Ultra Skinny by Paige Denim in Black Dahlia.  They're made in the USA and super comfy. You can find a bunch of different washes at Piperlime and Bloomingdale's, and I love these dark green ones!

The shoes are from Reddz Trading, the sweater is from Ebay, and the jacket is from Secondi.

black leather moto jacket, pop of color, maternity style, ethical fashion, my fair vanity

Full disclosure: these jeans are totally not buttoned, and I was wearing them while on my way to purchase (finally) some black maternity jeans that I could button. I held out for far too long on the maternity jeans thing, and now that I have a few pairs, I feel like I have been torturing myself out of sheer laziness, and it was not worth it.

black leather moto jacket, pop of color, maternity style, ethical fashion, my fair vanity

I'm also wearing a 100% cotton, hand-loomed scarf that I acquired during my trip to Turkey-- I found a fair option for you in the "shop the look" below, but nothing could really match this beautiful, warm and oversize specimen of a scarf/sarong. It's actually the size of a beach towel and perfect for both sand and sun, winter wear, and long flights. It's my new security blanket, basically.

Shop My Secondhand Look for 20% off at the Real Real with code GETAWAY

I recently posted about how I'm transitioning summer shift dresses for fall, and since my entire outfit was secondhand from local retailer Secondi, I put together a way that anyone can get the look, regardless of whether they happen to live near northwest DC. I give you, The RealReal.

The RealReal is a nifty little online consignment space I've recently discovered, and they just so happen to be having a Columbus Day 20% off promo with code GETAWAY, so now is a great time to check them out. But I literally mean now because the promotion ends this evening-- sorry!

You can shop the items above and below by clicking on them, btw. There are ankle boots and a dress from Rag and Bone and a leather moto jacket by JBrand that I think is the jam.

Black Moto Jacket {Fall Style Transitions}

2 black leather jacket and dress maternity style ethical fashion

Given my ever-expanding belly, shift dresses have become a wardrobe staple, and now that the air is crisp, it's time to transition those flowy dresses for fall. The trick to shift dresses for both the pregnant and non-pregnant is proportion. This shift is a little too big for me in general, which is comfy for my belly, but that means it needs a short, fitted jacket to give it some definition, proportion and structure.

I picked up the one I'm wearing (and the jacket, actually) secondhand at Secondi. I used to belt every shift I own, nipping them in at the waist to create a waist, essentially. Now, I lose the belt and boom, prego dress.

7 black leather jacket and dress maternity style ethical fashion

It's been my preference to avoid almost all maternity wear, not just out of vanity (I hate most of it!), but bc I think it's more eco-friendly to continue to shop for items like the shift in this post that can be worn pre-and post-pregnancy as well. That's also why Hatch Collection is so far the only mama-wear that has appealed to me-- highly recommend checking them out

I can tell this little black moto jacket is going to be a key staple for the final weeks of my pregnancy, but it could certainly be anyone's fall go-to piece!

Last but not least, lest one of these photos fool you, my friends: I am very, very, pregnant.

Bomber Jackets

3 eco-friendly bomber jacket

One fall item I'm feeling very tempted to rock lately is a bomber jacket. They're a little bit trendy, but I think they can bring a sporty twist to even the most polished outfit while still keeping the look clean and current. What do you think?

See how I styled this 100% organic cotton bomber (center) in Northern Virginia Magazine with heels and a midi-length pencil skirt, for example. Natalie from The Fashionably Broke and I each selected two key fall items and whipped up two ways to wear them this season-- please do click over to see what we picked! And don't worry, each item I selected passes the fair test, of course.

But let's talk about these bombers I found from center, then clockwise from top left:

Meet Hatch Collection: Tasteful Maternity Style, 100% Made in the USA

3 hatch maternity jacket made in the usa ethical fashion

WEARING: Hatch Blazer; Alternative Apparel shirt and DVF heels purchased secondhand from Secondi; conventional black pants. PHOTOGRAPHY: Victoria Corkhill.

Pregnant ladies (and pretty much any ladies who think they might want to be a Mom someday), rejoice in all that is Hatch:

  • Easy, on-trend, comfortable wardrobe staples for work and for play that are designed to be worn before, during, and after pregnancy.
  • Entire line is 100% made in the USA
  • Hatch has contributed regularly to charity Every Mother Counts since 2011.

hatch maternity jacket made in the usa ethical fashion

Shop the look, including a few secondhand shoes I dug up from theRealReal:

4 hatch maternity jacket made in the usa ethical fashion

I was lucky enough to receive this beautiful blazer as a gift from a dear friend who turned me on to Hatch. Thank you so much, Kimmie! Above, you can see the real deal, i.e., what I actually wear to work all day: flats. I had the heels on for the District Closets event at Secondi, but for a typical day in the office, I ain't crazy, ya'll, I wear flats. :)

But let's get back to Hatch: they truly have created a robust collection of pieces that any woman would want to wear, pregnant or not. Add to that their commitment to domestic production, high quality, and supporting charities that benefit maternal health, and I think that what may seem at first to be a rather steep price tag begins to make a lot of sense. These are pieces you can invest in (or give as gifts) with confidence, ladies.

And get this: they have several items in their sale section right now that are perfect for fall and winter wear. Again, I kid you not, these are pieces that you will want to wear whether you are preggers or not. Below are seven seasonal staples including a cocoon coat, cocktail dresses, and a tuxedo blazer from Hatch that are all 50% off right now:

And, of course, I can't resist sharing a few more Hatch pieces I am in love with, but which aren't on sale (yet):

Still need more maternity style inspo?
