This one is a bit of a wild card for me, I don’t have kids but I can tell you kids are hard to buy for. They create laundry heaps bigger than themselves and they grow out of everything way to fast. So how do ethically minded parents shop for kids? Make all the clothes themselves? Here is another option, Wildly Co.
Welcome back! It’s the FINAL capsule wrap up for the Wear it Wednesday Capsule Challenge and 31 days! Get excited!
Mommas know the real life struggle of needing the perfect bag and still looking stylish. Wait. I’m not a mom, and I still have this struggle. But a fabulous, leather and print fabric bag, made just the way I want? Does that even exist? Yes, my dear it does and it’s made in America.

This week we are focusing on made in USA brands. These are brands I wholey trust and support. So, why does made in the USA matter to the ethical business conversation. It matters because we (Americans) have learned a lot the hard way. Change is hard it’s better for employees and in the long run employers.
I have heard of fashionABLE for a few years, but the band became personal when I heard founder NAME as a guest on the podcast She Percolates. It personalized the brand and the good being done by them to empower women to lift themselves out of poverty through dignified work in Ethiopia and locally in Nashville, TN
At one point last month I would literally google an item and ethical fashion. Many of my searched ended in fraught but my “rain boots and ethical fashion” turned up a fabulous brand I’m excited to share with you today!
If you haven’t heard of Olibérte this is a fair trade brand based in Ethiopia. I find their styles to be much more masculine and rougher, although finished and on-trend for year round wear. A fabulous fair trade option for the guy or gal in your life!
It’s time for our third Capsule Challenge Update….
