ABLE Winter 2017 Collection

Rosario Flutter Sleeve Jumpsuit

FashionABLE, a lifestyle brand I’ve long supported and even collaborated with on product design, is now ABLE. They’re still focused on ending generational poverty by working with women who have overcome extraordinary circumstances. And still manufacturing directly in the communities they wish to impact, both locally and globally, creating jobs, and ending the cycle of charity dependency.

ABLE just released their latest collection, right on time for all of those holiday events you’re sure to attend and chock full of perfect gifts to give too. I recently picked up a cropped sweatshirt, loafers, a backpack, and a pair of statement earrings to help round out my winter wardrobe. Most pieces are available in several colors and everything is right on trend. In fact, I might have an eye on a few more things for my Christmas list!

I’m always looking for opportunities to share more of my favorite affordable finds with you, so today we’re debuting a new series called Quick Picks where I’ll do just that. Ten things that I’m crushing on from the last week or so that I don’t own but wouldn’t mind having in my home. No art, no designer anything, only things that are within reach.

Sseko Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

 

If you recall, I’m acting as a Sole Sister for Sseko this entire year! As a Sseko Sole Sister I’ve been connected to one university-bound woman on Sseko’s team in Uganda to help her reach her educational goals –  and with every purchase made through our shared link sales will go towards her university scholarship.

Sseko recently launched their fall/winter 2017 collection and I wanted to share it with you. There are so many great staples to get you sartorially through the next few months, quite a few I’m eyeing to give as gifts this holiday season. First off, Sseko has launched an apparel line! Highly curated, the first season includes shawls, dusters, kimonos, and scarves.

 

 

 

They’ve also expanded their beautiful bags into the realm of travel. Four styles of varying size have all the space you need to make it through an overnight or a long weekend, and if you’re a light packer (or the weather is warm) you may even be able to fit a week’s worth.

 

 

 

Of course there are also some seasonal additions to Sseko’s already impressive collection of leather bags. Mulberry is shaping up to be this fall’s hot color and they made sure to include it – I’ve been carrying around the bucket bag below during errands for a few weeks and have received so many compliments.

 

 

 

 

The Fall/Winter 2017 Collection is a celebration of strength and resiliency. We are women who know that a dream without a plan, without action is merely a wish. We fall and fail because we are done playing small. We do hard things because we see the gap between the way things could be. We stand in the gap, we face the darkness and know that when we emerge we will be stronger and more resilient versions of who we are created to be. We do not just survive, but thrive.
