I just had the opp to meet the cool lady behind this awesome site – she is totally rad & she just spoke about Caravan Stylist Studio on her blog – even radder !
In addition to “Eco-Friendly Fridays,” I’m going to try to implement a new feature here on The Budget Babe called “Made in the USA Mondays.” My goal is to become a more educated consumer and I hope you’ll join me. I won’t get preachy, I promise, and yes, I’m still going to feature fashions made overseas (in part because less than 5 percent of our clothing is made in the United States).To start, here’s a short video with a simple message to help save New York City’s historic garment district. Caravan Stylist Studiosenlisted the help of some 20 celebs to spread the word about SAVE THE GARMENT CENTER.org.I had never heard of Caravan before, but apparently it’s a full service hair, makeup, and wardrobe studio in the heart of the fashion district and is complimentary to editors, bloggers, actresses, musicians and designers. It’s also a place where guests can visit and learn about new designers, especially ones producing in the Fashion District and throughout the USA. Guess I’ll be making a trip to Caravan soon – and if you’re a blogger visiting the NYC area, you might want to check them out!
