My love affair with the Hearts company began before they even launched their store in October of last year. A Scottsdale based, Eco-Friendly, fashion forward group of designers that continue to kill it. I am super excited to share with you the perfect giveaway, just in time for Summer!!!
Speak Carry All Tote
Speak up and speak out, this handmade tote tells a hopeful story of local women empowered by their removal from the sex trade industry in India. The crafting of each Hearts bag supports a rebuilding process with fair wages, better work environments, business and literacy classes, childcare, as well as budgeting and debt managing services for these hopeful women. This is all thanks to an organization, committed to rescuing women from the Indian sex trade industry and giving them fair living wages in a healthy environment through handicraft production.
AND it’s totally chic and just in time for Summer pool and beach days!
Here’s the deal! Enter to win this fab tote by clicking the Rafflecopter Giveaway link below:

First thing is first, I am extending the Nordstrom Sunglasses giveaway until Friday March 8th!!! So hurry your cute little bum over and enter here! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Dapper Fellow and I relaxed at home, visited with family and did some serious cleaning around the house.
Today’s look is another Black & White combo that I cannot get enough of. I love these tuxedo pants and felt this vintage blouse was a perfect compliment. I can’t get enough of the tailored lines and minimalistic styles! Remember these Chanel earrings I wore on NYE? I wanted to get one more wear out of them before I take them to be sized. What is your favorite trend for Spring?

It is only suitable that today’s outfit features another fab Hearts product! This outfit is what I wore when Dapper Fellow and I took the ferry from Alameda to SF. It was a warm day, but with the breeze it was very chilly! Perfect for this awesome Bolivia Beanie! What I love about SF is how well they do layering. They really take it to a whole new level. How do you like to layer?
