Piece & Co. + Shopbop Collection Launch

A few days ago when I was under the weather and either laying in bed or on the couch all day and night, I got a chance to catch up on a lot of Netflix.  I caught a particularly interesting documentary called Poverty, Inc.  which was eye opening to say the least. It examines the Poverty Industry and shows who really benefits from major charity organizations and their assistance. Spoiler: it ain’t the people. One of the takeaways was that many large charities and NGO’s aren’t necessarily helping a country by providing them with donations of foodstuff and clothing – what these countries really need is access to the rest of the world that they are economically shut out from.

That is one of the goals of Piece & Co. – a company that works with artisans across the globe, and makes it easier for them to create a living while using their skills and talents, thus improving their standard of living. They also with designers like Mara Hoffman, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Veronica Beard among many others, providing them with a link to artisans and factories that have already been personally vetted by Piece & Co. I actually got to meet the founder, Kathleen Wright, and I was incredibly impressed with her and the company mission to end global poverty.

Piece & Co. recently collaborated with several designers to launch a collection exclusively for  Shopbop.com. (Shopbop is an Amazon company so you get to take advantage of that free Prime shipping!) My top is from the new collection, but check out the rest of the styles here. Happy guilt-free shopping!

As always, thanks for visiting! xx

Fall 2016 Jewelry Preview with Kendra Scott

For week two of our Blogger Nation series, we are spotlighting one of my favorite jewelry lines, Kendra Scott, and their gorgeous new Fall collection. Inspired by the West and its red rock canyons, and the untouched beauty of natural stones, the collection features a variety of genuine stones paired with unique metals that create a dramatic combination. I was immediately drawn to the choker necklace with granite stones and the long statement earrings that are still demure and elegant. I also have these earrings from the collection that I can’t wait to share with you.

Also, it has become increasingly important to me to know more about the brands I am shopping. In a world where fast fashion is the norm, I want to support businesses that are actually doing more to benefit society. Besides having beautiful high-quality jewelry at a reasonable price point, I love Kendra Scott for what she and the company stand for, philanthropy and female empowerment. To know more, read my past interview with Kendra Scott here.
