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!

Nina Faux Fur Collar Double Breasted Coat // Piped Peacoat // Structured Wool Coat

Yesterday it was in the 70s in western Pennsylvania, but I’m still anxious to get out my winter wear! What can I say, I really look forward to layering up – especially in my embarrassingly large scarf collection. I’m not looking to add anything other than a pair of gloves this winter, but there were too many good pieces not to share. What’s your coat closet lacking?

Silk Diaries

 

I’m 100% behind what Silk Diaries is creating, especially during these harrowing times. They’re hand-dyeing silk as a self-soother for stress and anxiety to empower women in the workplace. Their most recent collection, Good Intentions, is 100% Habotai silk that’s botanically dyed with various plants, fruits, vegetables, tree barks, and cochineal (a tiny bug on the cactus flower, once thought to be as valuable as gold!). Silk Diaries is continuing to move the brand towards more sustainable practices.
