On today's show, I have a plethora of fall fashion goodies - a conversation with the founder of my new favorite (sustainable) fashion webshop, Modavanti, along with a host of last-minute Halloween ideas for all you procrastinating fashionistas out there! Two years ago, David Dietz left an established career in journalism and Middle Eastern politics to grow a sustainable fashion webshop. Modavanti launched just a year and a half ago, but has already made a significant name for itself as a leader in the small-but-growing market of online sustainable resources (plus, it's one of my personal favorites!) On today's show, you'll hear David talk about the path that took him from covering the Arab Spring to starting Modavanti, the philosophies and principles that guide his ethically oriented shop, and some new developments and future plans that will add to Modavanti's steadily growing base of loyal customers. Plus, a playlist that features the latest from Cass McCombs, Moonface, and Black Hearted Brothers, along with a preview track from next week's Maria Taylor release. All that and more in the hour ahead, so tune in, turn it up, and stay stylish with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!

Happy New Year! I thought I'd take the opportunity, during this week of good intentions and resolutions, to talk with an expert in eco-fashion makeovers. Gretta Eagan - stylist, model, consultant, and founder of the fantastic FASHIONmeGREEN site and services - graciously gave me an hour of her time, and shared her thoughts on the past, and future, of sustainable style. Eagan's organization, FASHIONmeGREEN, couples as a great eco-fashion editorial site and your access to personalized "green" styling services and wardrobe makeovers. On today's show, Greta shares about charting the course to sustainable fashion in an era of skepticism, some practical tips for DIY green makeover, a few of her favorite brands and shopping sites, and some predictions for what's ahead in 2013. Plus, in honor of BTR's Look Back Week, I've assembled a count-down of my favorite tracks from the year. You'll hear music from Firehorse, Cate Le Bon, Tim Damien Jurado, Kopecky Family Band, and more. So sit back, sip your detox juice, turn up the volume, and learn how to detox your closet for 2013, on BreakThru Radio!
