EcoVibe

Lately, I’ve been seeing quite a few bell sleeved tops, and I really like it! It’s giving off serious 70s vibes so when I saw EcoVibe came out with a button down made of Tencel in this style, I was like ‘YES, PLEASE!’. As you may know, Tencel is one of my most favorite fabrics. It is made from the eucalyptus wood fiber in a closed loop system with organic solvents. The touch is incredibly soft, and it wears well over time. I knew I would love the Jacquelyn Bell Sleeve Top before it even came in, and best part - I’ve been able to get in quite a few wears before this belly gets too big! {p.s. it comes in a gorgeous Rustic Rose color, as well} I’m sure you have seen EcoVibe on my site before, but if you are unfamiliar, they are a boutique {brick and mortar located in Portland, Oregon} and online shop that carries several thoughtful brands and their own private label, as well.

Olori -

A handbag empowering women may just be the most perfect fit for this month. With International Women’s Day just around the corner, I’m all for showcasing fashion that empowers! Olori is the word for Queen in the Yoruba language {spoken in West Africa}, which symbolizes the inherent worth & power within every girl. All of Olori’s handbags are made by artisans and women-owned businesses in Nigeria, AND each bag pays one month of tuition fees for an underprivileged girl in Africa. It truly doesn’t get more women-focused than this!! The Tola handbag comes in 4 different colors, one being the Legend I have featured here. It’s probably made up of one of my favorite color combinations - navy, burgundy and tan! That combo can go with so much making this bag very practical for my wardrobe. It’s spacious enough for an iPhone+, wallet and other daily essentials. There is an internal pocket for better organizing, a magnetic closure, a pocket on the outside and you can also easily adjust the straps to your height. The leather is veggie-tanned, and the flap is referred to as Aso-oke {meaning ‘top-cloth’ in English}, a traditional textile from Nigeria used in weddings and ceremonies by the Yoruba people. Such a chic bag with so much depth and culture behind it!! BEAUTIFUL :)

Orenda Skin Care -

I’m sure you may remember this beautiful, natural skincare line from previous posts {or you use it yourself!}. Orenda Skin Care has a 100% Happiness Guarantee with all of their non-toxic, cruelty-free products so you can feel confident when trying them out for the first time. I use their Vitamin C wash every day, as well as their Illuminating Eye Concentrate you see here. I wake up with extremely ‘tired’ eyes, and put this on first thing in the morning before anything else. It’s a great way to restore moisture and gives you hydration for a less puffy under eye. Bye-bye, sleepy eyes!
