A few weeks ago, I was introduced to Gebo Mana, an Australian based company that creates limited edition (short run) T-shirts that assist in educating underprivileged children around the world! For every 5 shirts that are sold, a child is educated for an entire year via the Gebo Foundation! That's something worth sporting and supporting without a doubt! The shirts are 100% certified organic cotton and are from India. Each shirt displays images that are a mix of modern fashion and traditional tribal designs. The craftsman print, paint, embroider and stitch each one! This is the shirt that I received in the mail and I loved its minimalist packaging; however, there are a number of images that you can choose from on their website! When you receive your shirt, make sure you enter the information from your tags in to the system as each one is numbered. You can also reach out to their community by contacting them via Twitter @GeboMana as well as joining their GeboMana Fan Page on Facebeook!
I love my Mondays as these tend to be the only days in the week that I can work straight through without any events to interrupt my day! With that said, I may be on the balcony, heading to Starbucks, etc so my dress is super casual. Today's look incorporates the GeboMana shirt which I truly believe in, a pair of my new shorts, the Sebago shoes that are part of my summer/fall wardrobe as well as some other fab items. I don't know what today will bring but having the perfect tote where I can put my clutch laptop in it is key as well as the perfect accessories. I'm obsessed with the Farah Fawcet style sunglasses that allows me to embrace my inner Charlie's Angels as well as the fab octopus ring and leather cuff! Keep it cool and get things done!
Last week I presented the question of whether everyday could be Poppy, if you missed it then you need to check back to find out about Coach's Poppy Fragrance collection. Now in addition to this amazing launch of Poppy's first fragrance, I'm super excited to be apart of Coach's MYNY Poppy campaign launch for fall! For those that are not familiar with Poppy, this is a fun fresh line that came out last year! How excited am I to show you guys the two images that I shot for the brand? I am always inspired by 70's elements, Audrey Hepburn and Barbie (don't ask) and I think these inspirations tie into both of these looks and yes I would definitely spritz a little Poppy to add to that whimsical but sexy sense of style. I have to say that I fell in love with the pieces that I wore because this collection has elements that you can still wear to the Hamptons, South Beach (my little oasis), etc - it's the perfect summer look! But I'm also excited about the fact that they have fab pieces for the Fall that will be perfect for brunches, crisp walks, Fashion Week and so much more. The only items that were missing in my looks were a fab pair of sunglasses as it's a great way to add an instant change to your overall look!
In the summer I love having a bit of that Boho Chic meets Miami so it's all about light and airy colors! A great way to add pop into the outfit are those nice goddess like qualities such as fab sandals. The Poppy Leather Glam Tote in Gold is beyond phenomenal and I do plan on wearing it to a blogger trip that I will take next month to SoBe, imagine having it at the Delano sitting poolside. It's roomy and fun and whatever the weather happens to be, the sun is always coming from you! I also love the Poppy Lightening Bolt Necklace which has Swarovski Crystals that are afixed to a black thunderbolt. Fun and edgy and works well in the fall as well. I love that this works well whether I'm in NYC or jetsetting!
Now I also received the fab Tyler Moto Jacket in Bordeaux is so chic, I love the Farah Fawcet feeling I had as soon as I put this jacket on! I am all about super cute heels (yes my little Jimmy Choos), a great pair of skinny heels, a tank and an awesome jacket which has fab zipper embellishments! This is something that can really work with my wardrobe and can travel well! Let me just say that when I opened the bag the jacket came in, it was definitely super luxe!
I'm so glad to be apart of this fun campaign and seeing that this is the second time that we have been apart of Coach's fab collaborations I'm excited to see the new collection and to introduce it to you! Also check out Coach's MYNY campaign which can be accessed at the "New at Coach" tab under the MYNY link so that you can see the other amazing bloggers that styled pieces from this collection! Who doesn't love tips on what they should be purchasing this fall season?
