Fashion Ethic specializes in fashion forward, forward-thinking designs and conscious wardrobe building.

Kicking off the opening will be a "Naturally Chic" Weekend full of in-store events at Ella Mon, where customers will learn how natural, eco-friendly and “Fashionably Responsible™” choices in their closet and cosmetics are easy to make and still insanely chic.

2080s finale - this weds

i went to a couple of 2080s last year but quite frankly i can't be going out on school nights. regardless, i am a fan of soul & FCZ - so i'm a little sad to hear 2080s is ending. move to fridays maybe? xo
