It’s always a bright day when fashion and economic empowerment can thrive together. We were tickled pink when we found out that one of our favorite jewelry designers, Jenny Bird, was partnering with fair trade pioneers Far + Wide Collective to produce an exclusive collection that does just that.
Winter trends are in full bloom, from tactile textures, ladylike prints, and a fair share of sparkle, ’tis the season to layer up your look with fashion’s finest.
While I’m already beginning to mourn the end of summer, I must say that for the sake of fashion, I am excited to trade in my shorts for fall’s amazing trends. It’s a season to be daring and take risks, to mix and match prints, embrace tactile textures, and modernize looks of days past.
