I fell in love with the new lifestyle brand Gudrun Sjödén, when I ran across an ad in the latest New York Magazine showing off their “Garden Theme” and in particular, these funky pair of sneaks:
 The ad resonated with me because I’ve developed a green thumb as of late, carefully maintaining my first real garden of herbs, green lettuces, and other fruits and vegetables. The website is very earth-inspired and features fashion and housewares revolving around an holistic and ethically sourced mantra. And what makes them even better? The factory where the items are made are certified fair-trade, with a portion of each item’s price guaranteed to the workers. Not bad. I think I’ll be adding these kicks to my spring collection.
