I like all those sites that tell you how to get the "look for less". But, what about the "look for less environmental impact"? Buying vintage or secondhand is SO THE WAY TO GO. I trolled the internet to bring you some proof that new styles don't have to come from new clothes. Click on item pics to be taken to bid/buy sites.

I have always thought that Gwyneth was a bit of a snob (at least she seemed that way from her interviews - perhaps she was different in real life. I mean, I never had coffee with her or anything). However, she seems to have chilled out after having her two kids. Here she is at one of the premiers of her new movie, "Iron Man". (Which, btw, I saw opening night and highly recommend. But, obviously, only if you think movies based on comic books aren't complete rubbish. )
