The Genet Scarf

ONE Campaign + FasionABLE-1-Design Crush

 

See that beautiful, graphic scarf up there? It was woven by a former sex worker named Genet. She lives in Ethiopia and has been counseled, trained and employed by FashionABLE, an incredible for-benefit company based out of Nashville. The Genet scarf was designed by my friend, Janette (different spelling, same name!), who won the vote of 600 Alt Summit attendees in January to have her design produced in a limited-edition for delivery by Mother’s Day. Today and tomorrow the scarf is available for pre-order through the ONE Campaign and FashionABLE. The more scarves sold, the more lives we can change!

Stone Framed Sunglasses

Shwood-1-Design Crush

 

I would be foot-stomping mad if I owned a pair of Shwood‘s limited edition stone framed glasses and lost them. As I tend to do. These beauties are made by fusing slate with birch wood and are available in white and black in the Canby and Belmont styles.

Spring Fever

Spring-Fever-2013-Design-Crush

Hellooooo, Spring! As much as I love winter, it’s always nice to see buds on the mystery tree in my front yard and the perennials in my flower bed popping up for another year. Later this week the temps are supposed to drop again, spring you’re just so fickle! That means my day-to-day wardrobe will be full of pieces that are great for layering and stripping off, here are a few I’ve got my eye on…

Dooney & Bourke Small Savannah Satchel // Stateline sunglasses // Half Moon Threaded Bronze Amulet Necklace – Kate Miss // Fruit Punch Sanguine Red Strathcona Stockings // Splatter Jewel Studs – Kate Spade // Double-Square Tee – J.Crew // Zippered Curved Hem Jumper – SheInside // Hayley Knit Dress – Club Monaco // Wilfred Marais Pant – Aritzia // Dazze in charcoal perforated – Rachel Comey

Block Shop

Block-Shop-1-Design-Crush

 

Artist Lily Stockman is lovely in every possible way, and now she’s partnered with her business-minded sister Hopie to create Block Shop. The story behind how this Indian textile company came together is truly inspiring and the scarves are nothing less than stunning. Each one is stamped individually with vegetable-based dyes onto Indian silk-cotton blend fabric. It’s virtually impossible to choose a favorite, but if pressed I’d go with the coral arrows. Well done, ladies!
