Let me introduce you to FASHIONABLE-another Nashville brand making a phenomenal impact by providing a means for women who’ve overcome prostitution, addiction and homelessness to support themselves. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
What I’ve gained even more so than the styling tips and ideas is a COMMUNITY of women that stand for transparency in the fashion industry, which translates into better working conditions and fair pay for employees around the globe AND environmentally friendly production standards.
It’s time for the final five of the Summer10x10: that’s 10 pieces, 10 days and 10 different summer combos! I started out the challenge completely uninspired by my limited summer attire, but just a few days into WEEK ONE had me full of ideas!
