Tara explains why she got so frustrated with Wilson, and why she thinks green is in.

It was really special to visit Lisa's home. I'm not sure if it's because it is an entirely eco-friendly design, but the air within felt clean and the energy felt quite zen-like and still. You saw the green roof, which insulates the house, but you didn’t get to see the secret garden! It is quite the hidden oasis within the bustling streets of New York.

It was wonderful reaching out to sustainable fashion designers, Samantha Pleet, The Sway, Robin Brouillet , Beau Soleil, Auralis and Olsen Hause. These "sustainable" designers are local and use socially responsible methods of production, and environmentally friendly materials and fabrics.

Samantha is such a sweetheart. She was kind to have Ambria and me over to her studio to see her designs, which are inspired by her travels. We had a blast trying on some of her pieces, and you should have seen the upstairs room where we changed, it felt like we were in a dollhouse. She ended up making out really well at the green party where quite a few of her pieces sold.
