ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

Portrait of the Artist, in her studio, reviewing

Now, just imagine I'm sitting right here in front of you, going on about the swell book I just read:

Fabulous photos, interesting interviews, intelligent info...style, naturally is an excellent source/guidebook for anyone looking to green their personal style. The 50+ page index of resources --- web addys, street addys, and phone #s for manufacturers, shops, and nonprofits worldwide makes it worth the price alone; the rest makes it feel like you just got your hands on the biggest bargain of the summer, combining solid info with a sense of humor and a dash of perspective. For those just starting out on the road to green living, this book will serve as a source of inspiration and provide enough basic steps to getting you on the right track. Feel like you already know it all? Think again. There is SO much packed into these 300+ pages that I can guarantee there is something new under the sun. Not just fashion/style either; skin and hair care receive serious coverage (!!!) and consideration. Vegan? There are plenty of helpful and fun notes and sources listed for you as well as for straight up eco and/or vintage fashionistas. Comment
