Shift Jacket

You guys know I love a good shift dress.  But did you know I’m also a fan of a great shift jacket?  Not only are they chic and stylish, but they are perfect for the office to take any simple dress you have in your closet up a notch.  And if you are looking for a great staple dress for your wardrobe, this one is perfect!  Not only is it affordable and super flattering, but it comes in a ton of great colors!  In fact, it’s one of the pieces that gets the most wear in my closet-no matter the season!

Raven + Lily

I am pretty sure that yesterday was the first Monday that I haven’t shared a blog post since I launched All Dolled Up.  And if you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you should: alldolledupblog), then you know I have been in Boulder cheering on my hubby at Cyclorcross Nationals.  And while we had a really fun weekend, horrible roads plus a sick husband on the drive home meant having to unexpectedly stay the night in a hotel in the middle-of-nowhere Wyoming.  So my apologies for missing yesterday!

But now that I am back, I wanted to share with you an amazing company called Raven + Lily.   I love to shop fair trade and have shared quite a few fair trade finds and companies on the blog in the past, and so I thought it was important to share the ah-mazingness of Raven + Lily with all of you.  Raven + Lily is a company founded by two women who wanted to use fashion and ethical design as a “a platform to utilize those passions to alleviate poverty among women”.  The necklace I am wearing in today’s post is a favorite of mine from their Ethiopian Collection and was created by HIV positive women from handmade beads made of melted bullet casings from previous war conflicts.  Talk about a powerful statement necklace.  You can read more about Raven + Lily here, and you can shop their incredibly gorgeous collection here, including designs from Ethiopia, Cambodia, and India.  When we are so blessed to live in this great country, and live the lives that we do, I think it’s incredibly important to give back when we can and support companies that empower women around the globe…
