Happy Earth Day, dolls! We're celebrating by bringing you some easy tips to help green up your style routine...and none of them require you to invest in anything new (which will eventually, inevitably, end up in a landfill, even if it is made of eco-friendly cotton). Here are our favorite ways to give the Earth a big old hug without spending a cent...
1. Donate your old clothes. Haven't done your spring cleaning yet? What the heck are you waiting for? Follow our easy steps to making the closet cleanse a breeze, then send the stuff you no longer want to your local Goodwill or Salvation Army. Your good deed will do double duty: Someone in need will get great new clothes to wear, and you'll avoid sending more stuff to the trash.
2. Bring your own bags when you hit the mall. You're probably already bringing your own reusable bags to the grocery store (right?!), but have you ever thought about doing the same for your non-food shopping sprees? Think

By Tracey Lomrantz, Glamour magazineRead More »from Crazy But True: Australian Stores Are Charging Customers To Try On Clothes!
Remember the recent report that fitting rooms are about to get a whole slew of new bells and whistles, from six different kinds of ambient lighting to TVs tuned to sports for waiting boyfriends? Well dolls, those aren't the only new features they'll come with--in Australia, the process of trying on clothes now ends, in some cases, with a tab!
In what may be the craziest bit of retail news I've ever read, traditional boutiques down under are trying to compete with online stores...by charging their customers to try on clothes. According to this story in the Sydney Morning Herald (by way of Fashion Etc), "Retailers have resorted to charging try-on fees in store, which are refunded upon purchase, to stop consumers heading online to search for the same item at a lower price. Besieged by the new world of e-commerce, it is no longer enough for traditional bricks-and-mortar stores to fill their racks and then wait for the customers to roll in."

Today in amazingly chic bargain news, we've got a great reason to cheat on your flip flops this summer. They're called Soludos, and they'll help you look a little bit more like Kate Bosworth...for less than $30.
It doesn't get much more classic than espadrilles when it comes to warm weather footwear--look no further than Pablo Picasso and Brigitte Bardot for proof--but Soludos has given the summer staple a modern twist in a range of bold colors and smart patterns, and the celebrity set has taken notice (that's Kate and Jennifer Garner, above, both wearing the preppy-chic seersucker version).
The company was started in 2010 when New Yorker Nick Brown couldn't find the perfect pair of espadrilles in his home city and decided to make 'em, instead. The result is an eco-friendly, easy-to-wear shoe that ranges from just $26 to $28. Can you say total steal?
Head over to soludos.com now to snag your pair, or just click here to buy a few of our

It's not the sexiest of topics, dolls, but it's one that definitely has a place here on Slaves To Fashion as warm weather approaches: How the heck do you get sweat stains out of your white clothes? We've got three great solutions.
I was recently thumbing through the stack of books that frequently make their way across my desk when I came across an absolutely genius tip in Shoe String Chich: 101 Ways to Live the Fashionably Luxe Life for Less. If you've been struggling with sweat stains (we won't tell!), here are a few smart suggestions made by author Kerrie Hess:
1. Soak in water and white wine vinegar: Use 1/4 cup of white wine vinegar and about four cups of cold water; soak for 20 minutes before washing.
2. Use baking soda: It whitens your teeth, so why not your fabrics? Create a paste by taking 1/4 cup of baking soda and slowly adding warm water until it's thin enough to spread. Rub it into the sweat stains (a nailbrush or old toothbrush will

My crisp, white BD Baggies Dexter button down is a constant go-to in my closet. Whether I'm going to an event, brunch with my girlfriends or an interview, I know it's a safe bet.

Hey, fellow bathing beauties: Can you believe swimsuit season's only weeks away? We're having a little warm spell here in NYC today, which put me in the mood to try on last season's bikinis and see what still works. I know, I know...who in their right mind would ever be in the mood to try on bikinis? Gals who follow this smart tip, that's who!
We know shopping for bathing suits ranks right up there with a root canal under the category of "stuff that really, really sucks" but this season, it doesn't have to be a confidence zapper. Before I even think about stepping into a fitting room to try on swimwear, I follow this one little rule: Get ready as if you're really going to the beach.
That means exfoliating, shaving, waxing, heck, even a little bit of self-tanner, to help put you in the right mindset and feel great about the way you look in the mirror. When your reflection shows your winter self--y'know, the one that let the bikini wax upkeep slide

Many people are born with crazy amounts of passion-and some lucky ones with the talent to match. I'm a lover of fashion (obviously!) and my little sister Caitlin is a lover of food!
Caitlin's love and passion for food has been match by her talent (yep, I know, I'm a bit biased) throughout her 20-something years, sometimes as a sous chef, sometimes as a foodie radio show host and, most currently, as founding editor of The Urban Grocer and host of the newest global foodie show on the Cooking Channel (also called The Urban Grocer).
I love style and fashion just as much as Caitlin loves food, so I started thinking: Like a marriage of peanut butter and jelly or jeans and tee shirts, do food and style mix? According to designer Joy Kampia Joy Kampia, they do. She too, a lover of food and style, has created a collection called Dinner for Eight, crocheted food as fashion. Hamburger Dress? Yup, she's got that. Your Sundae Dress. That too. Her fun wearable
