We love brands that use eco-friendly, sustainable fabrics and design processes, but Los Angeles-based label Lavuk takes things one step further: for every garment sold, a tree is planted through American Forests as part of the California Wildlife ReLeaf program. And these pieces by young designer Natasha Gindin aren’t just feel-good - they look good too! Below are some of our favorites - view the entire collection online at


KalReiman_Fall2012_thumb.jpgWe first discovered Kal Rieman last season, so we were super excited to get to take a peek at their Fall 2012 lookbook yesterday. Of course, it’s amazing. There are so many styles we want! Too bad we’ll have to wait until next fall (although designer Cally Rieman does promise that new spring/summer styles will be available at shortly).


Known for edgy jewelry and body chains, Luv AJ has expanded into turbans for this latest collaboration with UNH. Turbans have been popping up everywhere lately, from The Sartorialist throughout the rest of the blogosphere, but would you wear one of these? The collection seems to have something for everyone, at prices ranging from $58 to $108: mesh, perforated, studded, silk, leather and metallic. Shop online at

This vintage-inspired lace shift dress by Etsy seller Ktjean is so versatile - you could wear it to the office with pumps, on a date, or on the weekends with some flat ankle boots for a totally different vibe. It could even be an alternative wedding dress. We adore the feminine details and flattering waist-emphasizing silhouette!
