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.

We love that this basic is having a major moment this season! Chances are you already own a turtleneck or two in your winter wardrobe. Whether paired with jeans or worn under a blazer, we’re loving the versatility this style offers while keeping you warm and looking chic.

Winter Trends 2016: Tall Boots

Posted by on January 14, 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.

Last week we talked about suede.
Next up: TALL BOOTS.

Whether classic or edgy, this full-coverage footwear trend is comfortable and chic. On chiller days, tall boots make dresses and skirt wearable. They also give a polished, refined look to jeans and add a down-to-earth feel to more delicate pieces.

Winter Trends 2016: Suede

Posted by on January 7, 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.

First up: SUEDE

With the 70’s trend hanging around into 2016, suede is here to stay, too! One of the reasons why we love suede this winter is it’s a statement, without the fuss. It blends with any outfit while looking ultra sophisticated.

Celebrating 2015!

Posted by on January 1, 2016

Happy New Year | FASHIONABLE

Happy New Year!!
2015 was a HUGE  year for FASHIONABLE, and we wanted to take a moment and celebrate some big accomplishments we’ve seen this year.

We’ve seen one of our top-sellers, the Mamuye Tote on some of our favorite celebrities, including Julianne Hough, Jessica Alba, Olivia Wilde, and Drew Barrymore.  The popularity of our leather products means that we’ve been able to provide more jobs and help strengthen capacity with our partners. Because we’ve seen our leather business more than triple, we were able to help secure consistent power supply from the government when our team was visiting Ethiopia this fall, which has created a more effective and efficient production for them, equaling a steady supply of products!

Then, of course our big news this year was adding in the LOCAL component of our work and mission, creating opportunity for women in Nashville who have transitioned out of homelessness, prostitution, and addiction.  The addition of the Miriam Collection of jewelry has provided 5 full-time jobs at our offices in Nashville, with plans to continue to grow and expand in 2016.  Having the women work locally provided the flexibility and ability to offer customizABLE, as well, which has been a huge hit since it launched at the end of October!

We witnessed what can happen when we embrace a spirit of collaboration, with our Hibret Zippered Pouch, designed by our friend Minka Kelly. It brought together one of our leather partners and one of our weaving partners to create a beautiful suede pouch — modeled by Minka and her pal Mandy Moore below.

Another exciting GLOBAL accomplishment was watching one of our weaving partners expand in their skills past scarves, with the addition of our Home Goods Line (stay tuned for more fun additions in 2016!). We continue to work together to improve quality and consistency and are encouraged with the way their business is growing!

It can’t go without saying that all of this is because of YOU, our amazing customers, who #livefashionable and keep us in business!
THANK YOU for continuing to purchase products that provide opportunity to these women.
THANK YOU for telling your friends and family.
THANK YOU for being on this journey with us.

Here’s to another great year together!

Meet Barbara!

Posted by on December 16, 2015

A few months ago we expanded our impact to now working with women locally, as well as globally.  Currently, our local women create our jewelry line, known as the Miriam Collection.  We love these gals so much, and want to introduce them to you over the next few weeks.

We’ve introduced you to TerriLindsey, and Melissa.  Next up: meet Barbara.
Barbara is kind and wise, and we love having her on our team! She has a great eye for detail and dominates making all of your Ring Bar orders.

Meet Barbara | FASHIONABLE

Q. How long have you been in Nashville? Where are you from originally?

A. I’ve been in Nashville for 15 years and am originally from Baton Rouge.

Q.  If you wouldn’t mind, tell us a little bit about yourself. Your family, background, etc.

A. I am 27 and am recently married to my wonderful husband, Travis. Together, we have 4 beautiful daughters. I currently am in school studying Psychology because I struggled with drug and alcohol abuse for many years. Having overcome this by the grace of God, I now hope to be able to help others that share the same struggle.

Q. How did you hear about FASHIONABLE?

A. I met Gracie (Miriam Collection founder) through a non-profit that I worked for and began working making jewelry a little over a year ago. We partnered with FASHIONABLE along the way and then merged this summer.

Q. What’s your favorite thing about making jewelry?

A. I’ve been able to find a creative side that I didn’t even know I had. I love making things from scratch and seeing the beautiful pieces they turn into. And I have found a love/appreciation for jewelry that never existed before.

Q. What do you love to do in your free time?

A. Spending time with my family. We love to go fishing, watch movies, and cook.

Q. What’s your favorite jewelry piece? 

A. The Moonbeam (ABLE necklace)- It was the first piece of jewelry that I ever made, it’s simple & it goes with everything.

Q. What are you ABLE to do because of your job at FASHIONABLE?

A. I am ABLE to help provide for my family and be encouraged by being around my work family. I am also ABLE to help encourage other women who join our team and have struggled with similar issues as myself, and I am ABLE to embrace the creative side of myself that I never knew existed.
