One of the time-honored New Year fashion traditions is, of course, the wardrobe overhaul. Join me today with my guest Greta Eagan – sustainable style expert, author of Wear No Evil, founder of Style Society and curator of FASHIONmeGREEN – as she shares some invaluable practical pointers that will help you build a better closet in 2015. Greta shares about the process of writing and publishing her book, the details of her newly-developed fashion share company, a few of her winter fashion and beauty go-to’s, and some tips for a closet cleanse to start the year off fresh!

Plus, I have a great playlist full of exciting new music from innovative artists like Jessica Pratt, Brika, Panda Bear, Dan Deacon, and more. So open that closet door and get ready for a sustainability-minded makeover with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!

Odds & Ends
*Read all about Banana Republic’s upcoming debut at NYFW from Fashionista.
*Sample the full upcoming new album “On Your Own Love Again” from vintage-y chanteuse Jessica Pratt via NPR’s First Listen.
*The video for Dan Deacon’s new single is soooooo trippy, but still fun and whimsical!
*A sophisticated spin on another deliciously sinful comfort food for winter: tuna noodle casserole from Food52 (and here’s a version for your crockpot!!)
*My new favorite lullaby album for our little miss – also makes great bed/nap/rainy afternoon listening for adults!
*Gin makes a rare appearance in wintertime, but luckily for us fans, Paste Magazine just published a roundup of cold-weather-friendly drinks featuring the floral spirit! (Plus, if you haven’t tried my personal favorite yet, hop to it!)
