The Best Revenge Is: Peace by Kamie Kahlo

Day two of my Revenge, I decided to make “Peace”. The meaning was clear here, a green gun exploding a flower and the words, “The best revenge is peace.” Go ahead, make my day!

This soft heather tee hugged my body and came down mid-thigh. I never thought recycled plastic bottles would feel this amazing, but it did! The checker at the grocery complimented me on the tee and when I told her what it was made of she commented, "Oh, must be expensive." When I told her it was only $32, she couldn't believe it! I think this eco-friendly company has another new customer thanks to Adelita Style and Fancy-Green.


Two organic, recycled tees from a company with strong social and environmental commitments are now mine. I’ll wear them well and with pride because fashion is pretty, eco is all the rage and a statement can be worn thanks to Revenge Is.

Revenge Is: Saving the Rainforest by Kamie Kahlo

I was picking up Fancy-Green’s publisher for a walk and she surprised me with two darling little tees for me to wear-test! Revenge Is makes hip recycled material t-shirts with eco and social content. And as if that isn’t enough, they donate 10% of their profits to charity.

The next day, I was saving the rainforest! A creamy smooth scoop tee and slightly puffy sleeves in sage green with a block-print of a tree, a cloud and raindrops topped off my jeans perfectly. The tee was a bit longer, the way I like it, so it peeked out of my cotton blazer ever so slightly. The whimsical print made the message I was wearing smart and chic!


In fashion a message is only effective if it’s great looking. Revenge Is makes powerful statements with delightful t-shirts that feel great too.

Sameunderneath Swing Jacket: Manic Weather Safe by Kamie Kahlo

click on this image for a closer look!

The weather in Seattle has quite a reputation. My friends in California are just sure that it rains 300 days out of the year. While that is not usually the case, sadly this Spring it is indeed raining, raining, raining and quite chilly. So, it’s a good thing that Fancy-Green handed me this lambswool jacket from eco-conscious clothing company Sameunderneath.

The 95% lambswool in this jacket, as it turns out, is an all-weather friend! And, indeed it can be worn even through our tumultuous spring. The adorable Swing Jacket has excellent moisture wicking properties and doesn’t leave me soggy in our drizzley weather. Plus it breathes for those odd moments when the sun decides to come out. And in the midst of our weather’s bipolar change, the wind is no match for it’s natural resistance to chill.


Practical is all good but what does it look like? It’s sassy swing, two-button collar and sweet belted back make for a classic little jacket that can be worn for years to come in almost any weather.
