Fashion Revolution Week!

Posted by on April 22, 2016

Last year people in over 70 countries helped to celebrate the first ever Fashion Revolution Day with the UK based organization Fashion Revolution. This year the organization has decided to go even bigger and celebrate the movement all week long from April 18-24! So how do you celebrate Fashion Revolution Week? It couldn’t be simpler. All you have to do is ask brands #WhoMadeMyClothes? By participating in FRW, you are demanding more for every individual who is involved in the fashion industry—from the designer to the farmer. Read more about the revolution here!

FASHIONABLE is proud to be one of many brands that knows, trusts, and invests in the people who make our goods. In fact, some of our staff members spent last week visiting our partners in Ethiopia! We got to visit the people who hand craft our leather and woven goods and see for ourselves what their working conditions are like… and we couldn’t have been happier with what we saw!

Cast Your Vote: Why Crosses?

Posted by on March 29, 2016

Our Cast Your Vote theme this week is CROSSES. After Easter weekend, we felt it was appropriate to create a collection of necklaces to honor that symbol of faith… the cross. We made a range from traditional, with the Opal Cross Necklace, to more modern like the Plus One Cross Necklace. We hope you find something that you love and want to add to your jewelry collection.

Cast Your Vote: Why Chevron?

Posted by on March 15, 2016

For the next few weeks, we are going to be asking you to vote on your favorite jewelry piece in each of our themed collections. We hope you find something that fits your unique style and can’t wait to see which pieces you love! 

This week’s theme: CHEVRON
Cast Your Vote

Why Chevron?

We started on a mission to find a necklace style for every single girl in our office. Our staff members range from preppy to boho to minimalist, so this felt like a big challenge. The chevron is typically considered preppy, but never goes out of style- so it was fun to figure out how everyone on our team would wear it. We hope you like it & would love to hear which one is your favorite!

Winter Trends 2016: Faux Fur

Posted by on January 28, 2016

As we enter the new year, we’ve got a few moths of winter ahead of us to embrace the layers and try to stay looking cool without feeling completely frozen.  So all month we’ll be sharing some of our favorite Winter Trends.

We’ve talked about suede and tall boots, and turtlenecks.
And to wrap it up: FAUX FUR.

We’ve always been a fan of the instant glamour faux fur adds to any winter outfit. We’re loving the trend update this season with a wide variety of faux fur colors, patterns, and textures. To style this trend, pair a faux fur coat or vest with a flowy blouse and skinny jeans or with your favorite sweater and boyfriend jeans.
