eco boutique in the 'hood: CONVERT. WOW. Waltzed in and explained my organic experiment: one year - 100% organic in what I wear and schmear. No blank stare. Instead: efficient march through store, all arms loaded full with organic clothing delicacies. They got it. Fast. Fab design too. Not the organic crap that's offered at Patagonia (looks like your cousin in rural Idaho might like it), or Patagucci as I like to call it. Becca, assistant manager, shown below, got me hooked up. She-Bible or Curator (they're changing their name, I guess) of San Francisco, Prairie Underground from Seattle, Convert brand t-shirts (organic cotton, fabricated in Los Angeles), Tightology (organic tights). Needed something warm to layer in my sometimes-chilly medical office. Here you are: Plath Cardigan.
Bought this little number for the next time I meet Tony Blair. The Bancroft dress by Curator. Still researching whether it's actually as organic as the staff led me to believe. Help - disavow me of my skepticism!B's. I've shopped there for decades. Asked about organic clothes, cotton, wool, anything? Blank stare.
