Rebuilding New Orleans Not Only Feels Good, It Looks Good

I am a big fan of vintage t-shirts. Give me an AC/DC, Beatles or classic Strawberry Shortcake t-shirt and I'll rock it with a pair of jeans and my stilettos any day.

One of the hottest t-shirts over the past couple of years has been the vintage TIDE t-shirt. But, the great thing about rocking the classic T is that you get to combine looking good with feeling good. The proceeds from the shirt benefit families affected by Hurricane Katrina.

But, TIDE isn't the only option for those of us who are socially and fashionably conscious. I was recently given a really cool gift. A zip-up jacket from the Renew Orleans brand. You can check it out at the link below. The proceeds from the brand go toward the rebuilding of New Orleans homes and culture.

I am sure you may have already heard about Brad Pitt's newsboy caps currently on sale. All the proceeds from the cap go towards building 150 new homes in New Orleans' Ninth Ward by summer.

Pitt's MIR (Make It Right) Project also has eco-friendly t-shirts and a really cool pink tote made from recycled material. You can check out the organization and it's eco-friendly apparel at

I am loving the New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund apparel. Two of my favorite products by the brand are the NOMRF Logo Tote Bag and the absolutely adorable NOMRF Logo Dog T-shirt. You can check them out at

Strut with a cause this spring/summer with a hot new tote, cap, t-shirt or dope zip-up like yours truly. Oh yeah, and don't forget to let your dog represent by hooking him up with a shirt too!
