Shop Meaningfully Everyday
It’s easy to forget that we can empower people’s lives when we buy the simplest things in life from food to fashion. And so I couldn’t resist sharing this fabulous sale on one of my fave guilty pleasure websites, GILT – co-founded by one of our top women, Alexandra Wilkis Wilson. Celebrating International Women’s Day, they are featuring a beautiful kate spade new york collection of cool totes and whimsical accessories inspired by a collaboration with Zainab Salbi’s Women for Women International. Through this partnership of philanthropy and fashion, every item is designed by kate spade new york and crafted by female artisans in war-torn countries. For every item sold, kate spade new york provides training, wages and sustainable employment to women all over the world.
My brother Robert has been part of the spade family for years as the buyer at their men’s line, jack spade, so I was able to get a sneak peek of the collection at their fall Women for Women International Annual Gala as well as hang with fabulous women like Marie Claire’s Joanna Coles and Deborah Llyod.
Happy shopping and remember to try and shop consciously everyday.
