Compassionate Fashion: Handmade Scarves & Accessories From FashionABLE

FashionABLE is a company based in Nashville, Tennessee that seeks to create sustainable business opportunities for women in Ethiopia through stylish, handmade scarves and leather goods. FashionABLE is committed to creating long-term poverty solutions instead of a cycle of dependence, so they help women set up business collectives, assist with job training and education, and partner with local manufacturers to encourage hiring more women and paying fair wages. Then they step back and let the women take charge of their own destinies. As the company website states: “That means that your purchase of a scarf creates jobs so that the women are not dependent upon charity, but instead are a vital part of a developing economy.” Pretty awesome, right?

Home Inspiration: 12 Tasteful Table Lamps For $50 Or Less

The secret to a sophisticated but affordable living space is pretty pillows and tasteful lamps. These types of functional home décor can polish off the most minimalistic space. This weekend, I ventured out on a mission to update my pathetic $10 bedside lamps with something a little chicer on a budget of $60. Instead of a pattered shade, which would compete with my duvet, I sought out a decorative base. At first I was discouraged by the high price tags, then by my husband’s hatred of anything ornate. Finally we agreed on two lamps at T.J. Maxx! The new lamps frame the bed nicely and are a wonderful addition to our otherwise boring nightstands.
