The eco-minded are welcome to preview Organik Clothing’s 2008 Collection of eco-friendly, hand-printed shirts tomorrow night, Dec. 4, at the Greendrinks event at E&O Trading, Ward Centre.

The shirts are made of 100 percent organic cotton, bamboo & recycled fabrics by a Kailua-Kona-based company. There’ll be pupu, drink specials and an op to meet and mingle with other people who care about the environment.

Let’s hope they have some healthy smoothies and teas in the mix. I’m recommending that anyone hosting events in coming weeks have healthful fruit juices to help shoppers stave off the sniffles and worse. I mean, just this little bug I caught put me out of commission for 2 weeks when I couldn’t shop, couldn’t go out, couldn’t eat, couldn’t look at stuff. Multiply that by couple thousand people on a weekly basis, and that’s not good for anyone’s business.

On top of that I’ve been having those work dreams again. I was so happy to have “found” a couple of stories in my dreams last night. In one dream I interviewed a Japanese artist who was printing his designs on T-shirts. Very cool. In the second dream I was having lunch with a friend at Pearlridge and happened onto a fashion show there. It seemed that French Connection (maybe because I unearthed a black dress I bought from their Vegas store a couple months ago) had opened and was staging an in-store show for men and women and it was really fun and I took pictures and all and found a lot of Xmas ideas there.

Then there were all these ambulance noises outside and the reality is they had come for one of our neighbors, so that woke me up and I realized the fashion show was just a dream. So no pictures to run in the paper Thursday, but I do remember mod styles with the subtle shimmer of square pailletes around the necklines, and very sunny colors of bright orange and yellow. I was still relieved that I at least had the other story about the Japanese artist, then realized that had been a dream too. Sad.

So, I decided to take a look at the FCUK Web site, and here are some styles that were in the spirit of the show in my dreams:

French Connection Rita top, $98, and night skirt, $138.
