i'm an accessory girl. always have been, always will be. i feel rather bare if i leave the house without some sort of jewelry, purse, scarf, or other item. not to mention, i love to buy accessories. it's probably my favorite category to shop for.
with the spring season (eventually) approaching, i'm collecting some lightweight scarves and fun jewelry to help celebrate the warmer weather and the end of one of the worst winters ever. i've already loaded up on bright statement jewels from Forever 21, a fab spring handbag from Kate Spade (which will be making it's debut rather soon), and a couple scarves from various places, including Symbology.
if i'm being totally honest with you, i don't typically think about where the products come from that i'm buying. as you probably know, i studied textiles in college, so i know quite a bit about working conditions in factories and the fashion industry as a whole. overall, it's not good...at all. but there are some wonderful brands and companies that are incredibly conscious about their practices and the products they're selling - Symbology being one of them.
here's a little about them:
We fuse artisan fabrics from developing countries with fashion forward designs to create authentically beautiful pieces--each that tells a story of empowerment. It is also important that each item is handcrafted by women in India, many of whom have little to no education yet possess amazing artisan skills. Through building a high end fashion label that merges these skills with beautiful fashion, we invest in women to be agents of change in their communities!
awesome, right? not only is that elephant scarf adorable, but it's also got some good stuff behind it, which makes me feel even better when wearing it. Symbology is graciously giving away the same scarf to one lucky reader! use the giveaway tool below to enter!
