Eco-Friendly Undies

Since, today is Earth Day I wanted to present to you Piado, an eco-friendly line that focuses on the basics: underwear. Piado's undies are made from Bamboo, which is the fastest growing plant on Earth. Bamboo is lighter, softer, cooler and more comfortable than cotton. It also helps to reduce carbon dioxide gases that contribute to Global Warming. From undies to the packaging Piado makes eco-friendly decisions using packaging from recycled paper and is committed to green business practices, which is great, do offices really need fax machines anyway? Other than being a waste of paper the idea of faxing is so 80's and archaic.

When my Piado undies came in the mail I was curious of its fit and how they would wear after several washes. I must admit they are one of the most comfortable undies I own and are very light- as if you had nothing on. The fabric does breathe better than your average cotton undies, which keeps you cool, because bamboo wicks away moisture keeping the body dry. Piado's undies are in fact very comfortable and wear well. In honor of good undies and Earth Day everyone should purchase a pair of eco-friendly undies.

Prices range from $20 for briefs to $24 for the boxer-briefs.

My Antonio Azzuolo Spring Must-Have

One of the major advantages of being a fashion stylist is getting your hands on items that you would only be able to purchase if you were in, say, Japan. Which was the case with this black Anorak from Antonio Azzuolo's spring collection. It was only sold to retailers in Japan, which is a shame because I can so see this selling out in Barney's New York. Barney's or Bergdorf get with it! I first saw it on Antonio's website and had to pull it for IDOL magazine's 'Forever Young.' When I saw it in person at Antonio's studio I knew I had to have it. Thankfully Antonio Azzuolo's sample sale came around and I was able to purchase it. I just had to have it! It's so chic you could wear it casual with jeans, tee and high-tops or with a button-down, cropped trouser and lace-ups. Perfect for spring days like today when you only need something light to throw on and you just don't want to wear a leather jacket.

Behind The Scenes of IDOL Magazine's 'Forever Young'

Here are some behind the scenes images of IDOL Magazine's 'Forever Young,' which was shot in Williamsburg. Although I had a model drop out and had to send another one, home, it turned out really well. Jase, our model, was such a trooper I cannot wait to work with him again. Thanks to everyone who worked hard on this shoot. I will keep you updated when the shoot goes live on IDOL!

UPDATE: Click here to see 'Forever Young on IDOL Magazine's site.

Do we have it yet? Nope! Keep shooting please...

In this pic I was over all the behind the scenes images.

I love that blue Timo Weiland sweater!

Are they short enough? Never too short!
I live for short shorts!

Ms. Tricia working and organizing that's why I hired her!

What to Pack...

This evening, I leave for South Dakota. I bet your head just tilted to the side and your eyebrows arched with a confused face that reads, “Why are you going to South Dakota for?” Well, to answer that question, I am going to meet the Parents. Huge step, yes I know, but what the hell am I going to pack? Of course that would consume my thoughts! As I write, I have a bed covered with folded clothes and I do not have a clue what is actually going into my carry-on. A co-worker of mine said she likes to dress according to her atmosphere, i.e., if you’re in Miami you bring something more cheese-a-rella and if you go to LA you bring more casual. I get it. So, if I take Erin’s advice what do I bring? ‘Brokeback Mountain’ inspired apparel. So not me! The closest thing I have to mountain or hiking anything is a lined flannel and its Marc Jacobs from Fall 09. So, obviously, that’s def being packed, but what the hell else? Hiking shoes? Don’t own! Closest thing is perhaps suede Pierre Hardy desert boots. Since, the weather might be a bit shady I’m thinking knits. Maybe Yigal? Anything from his first men’s collection never fails me. I need to hurry up and get packing! Wish me luck!
