Dr. Fish, she of the completed dissertation and summer of leisure, came over so that we could get pedicures in celebration of my completion of 70-page chapter on Monday. (Sorry for the radio silence: after spilling 40,000 words into that document, I haven't had much to say...)
We never made it to the nail salon, as we ended up gabbing over tea...
But she did point me in the direction of this fabulous sale at Stewart + Brown, purveyors of stylish organic cotton and Mongolian cashmere duds.
Conventionally-grown cotton requires intensive applications of pesticides and fertilizers, which can then contaminate the water supply - so organic cotton is a great choice. (You can read more here. Patagonia also makes lots of organic cotton clothing.) Given the relatively few sources that supply it, organic clothing can be hard to afford on a grad student budget.
Stewart + Brown's hip stuff is usually super-spendy. Right now, though, a bunch of the summer stuff is more than half off -- and, on top of that, you get 30% more off if you enter SALESALE at the checkout.
Saving the planet one dress at a time...
Go have a look!
