What a choice way to start the New Year...this delectABLE, stackABLE ring from fashionABLE...talk about starting the new year with intention!

Delicate, feminine, dazzling, delightful.

These stamp rings can be custom made. All rings are 14K Gold Fill, Sterling Silver or 14K Rose Gold Fill. And you can choose up to 5 characters per ring.

That being stated, I like the idea of wearing the ABLE ring to start the year. It's prescient...and sets the tone!

I adore fashionABLE and have written about them several times before here...and here.

Smitten one more time.

We are now well into football season...so who doesn't need a matching scarf to go with your favorite team? fashionABLE has created these incredibly chic, ridiculously soft, 100% cotton scarves to go with your (surely) winning team!

These scarves:

-available in both traditional and infinity styles

-medium weight with contrasting textured stripes

-handwoven in Ethiopia

-subtle variations add to the uniqueness of each scarf

In 2005, Barrett Ward founded the revolutionary themochaclub.org. The idea was to give up the price of just 2-3 mocha lattes a month and forge change in Africa - using that money to create relief and development projects.

In just a few years later, Barrett moved to Ethiopia for a year. There, he met a group of activists called Women at Risk, who work with women exploited in the sex industry. After witnessing the success Women at Risk was having, Barrett came to understand that one of the biggest variables in keeping these women off the streets was generative employment.

With this, fashionABLE was born. Women sharing what they are ABLE to do when provided an opportunity.

With wholehearted team spirit...Smitten.

It is a rare occasion that I am not wearing a scarf...and I don't discriminate seasons either. From the grocery store to the gym, to frigid movie theaters and drafty flights, I love them! And now, this stunning white, 100% handwoven Ethiopian cotton, emblazoned with jet black screen printing, designed by Erin Loechner of designformankind.com...perfect!

This scarf has that bold statement written all over it!
