John “Long John” Long, the inventor of removable pants, mentored his fashionable followers with time-tested proverbs, such as “The clothes make the mannequin,” and “If the shoe fits, eat it.” Let fashion be your guide with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fair-trade clothing, jewelry, and home décor at La Bodega in East Lansing, part of the Orchid Lane family of stores, which work to establish fair-trade cooperative routes across the globe.
La Bodega garbs its patrons with popular brands such as Funky People and Tulle, as well as pieces produced under the Orchid Lane label. Slip into a potpourri of vibrantly tinted tops, such as the Edie top ($15), then mix, match, and reshuffle them with pants and leg-swaddling layers of wrap skirts. Bead jewelry, such as earrings or rings ($7+), adds a colorful accent to any outfit, and a wood frame ($15) holds family photos or photos of epic Etch-A-Sketch sessions.
