Killer Clothes they don’t want you to know about

I always took lightly reading clothing fabric content labels. As a fashion stylist I select thousands of garments from various designers from all over the world and sadly I have to report that most of the luxury brands use synthetic fibers. After I read a book Killer Clothes by Dr. Brian and Anna Maria Clement and did some research on my own I understood this sad reality. I checked my own closet along with all girlfriends in desperation to find some natural organic garments. To my surprise I found very few that could pass that test. Unfortunately what I mostly found was either nylon, polyester, spandex and some unspecified kind of cottons. Cotton today is the biggest target to be grown GMO engaged in toxic production methods. It’s hazardous to the human’s health as well harms the environment. Most consumers assume if an item is labeled “cotton” or even “natural” it must be automatically safe. This is so far from the truth. Not all cottons are created equal. Non-organic cotton contains residues of herbicides and pesticides used in the growing process.

Organically grown is applied when ecological production management system is used. It enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil cultivation activity. It promotes ecological harmony without pesticides, and practices safe crop rotation.

Conventionally produced cotton material may only last up to 10 machine washes, whereas organic cotton can last for 100 machine washes before it starts to show wear.

The first truly synthetic fiber created was nylon around 1939. The most popular consumer use women found in stockings and pantyhose that were growing on its popularity in the mainstream fashion. They restrict and suffocate the skin, our largest and most sensitive body organ, making it unable to breath properly. Most people don’t realize that our skin is our body’s most important organ to eliminate toxins. We release a pound of toxins every day throughout our skin.

Can you imagine that overall

clothing industry produced in the world today constitutes to $7 trillion a year.

No wonder its all about low cost and huge profits. Unfortunately at our safety cost where big brands profit sabotaging our health.  Up to one-third of married couples today experience fertility problems. Respiratory diseases have increased 160% among preschoolers in Europe and North America. Our risk of contracting cancer have escalated until one in two males and one in three females will develop this disease. Women have significantly increase chances of developing breast cancer.

Making first good impression on others is very important to a lot of us. Usually we are given only one chance to do so. We judge on the spot by the physical appearance. We become what we wear through colors, styles, and flamboyant fashion expressions. Wearing natural fiber clothes help us to maintain healthy body and minds and projects healthier more colorful future to us all.

Why girls play games

WHO DO YOU DRESS FOR?

For one thing women are always playing and reacting with their emotions. We test all the time. “No” often means yes and “Yes” translates to no. Go figure us out. There is no logic behind it at all. We check if you get the bite. And if you don’t we aim and activate our competitive dominant component to trigger explosive mix. We are full of charms.

I always question if we dress really for ourselves, men or other women?

Wearing provocative uncensored clothes definitely get us some attention as well it may get us in trouble. Perhaps its all about the mind game, teasing on and power play. Image is often powerful but superficial at the same time. After all we get judged daily as “we are what we wear”.

It was hard to keep a poker face while playing cards with my funny pal Carolina. We both dressed in Dolce & Gabbana black and ivory pant suits and Christian Louboutin black pumps while concentrating on our winnings. The only game we decided to play for a day was game of being ourselves!

P.S. As always I would like to hear from you if you play any games when dressing and dressesd? and Who do you dress for?

How to spend Holidays in New York

Shopping starts with Store Windows

CHRISTMAS-WINDOWS-3

CHRISTMAS-WINDOWS-4

CHRISTMAS-WINDOWS-1

Dec is the most anticipated time of the year not only for kids, but major department stores which transform their window displays into miniature winter wonderlands.  There is a lot to admire, get some serious laughs, and It doesn’t matter if its raining or snowing. You don’t want to miss it!! This New York holiday tradition makes it possible for everyone enjoying the holidays in NYC. I recommend you wear warm clothes, comfortable shoes, and look stylish within crowded haute window shopping.

Every day on my way to work I pass my favorite store Bergdorf Goodman which is located just across the street from Boutique on 57. Their window displays are always huge hit. I purposely slow down to admire those masterly crafted holiday signature designs. They get my vote for the most creative and talented artist’s choice of theme, displays of authentic antiques, couture fashions and tons of quartz crystals. They tastefully convert unveiling spirit of christmas sophistication.

It is an amazing experience and true art . I recently watched a documentary “Scatter my ashes at Bergdorf’s”  (which by the way is amazing film) and I learned what it takes to create elaborate windows. How much time thought, precision and dedication is put into each detail.

Right across the street from Bergdorf Goodman there is freshly opened store Mackenzie- Childs. They specialize in variety of home custom decorations and ornaments. I cruised within the store admiring their beautiful crafted windows, and indoor shelves when I came across cutting-edge christmas balls that were made in my native country Poland.

All those exquisite holiday stories are perfect destination for Santa Clause to arrive soon. I am sure he is going to have award time which store to start from.  I also couldn’t make up my mind.
