ORA ET LABORA Co. represents emerging and independent designers from Italy, Argentina, and the USA. Their intention is to empower culture, preserve heritage, and create a new approach to global community, artisanship, and individualism.

Because it’s only two weeks from yesterday if you live in the States and will be celebrating. Thanksgiving legitimately snuck up on me this year, which is unfortunate since it’s the holiday I host. I have no clue what I’ll be wearing either – most likely something from my closet that I add to. Maybe that’s your plan as well?

All fine plans of action.
