Upcycling vintage is good for your wardrobe and the Earth
by Lindsey Reiser

Speaking of romping, Chicago-based designer Jennifer Brown 
produces vintage-inspired, upcycled undergarments for her line, 
Under the Root.  Her romantic pieces recall times when 
underwear was more than functional; it was fun, hyperfemine, 
stylish and sensual too - think milkmaid meets burlesque performer.
Brown's collection of rompers, slipdresses, stockings and lingerie 
are all made from organic or upcycled material and are 
extraordinarily comfortable.  If you don't want to order online,
Haystack on Broadway also carries the line.
