Do you ever have those days where you stand in front of your closet and stare? For a good twenty minutes. And you accomplish nothing. This was one of those efforts. I finally decided it was time to pull something together and this is what came to be.
One of the parts about this outfit that I do want to highlight is my Kindness is Always Fashionable clutch from a former client of mine, Rachel Roy. Rachel is a big believer in using her platform to support causes that are close to her and close to so many. This particular clutch benefits Ghana and OrphanAid.
I remember sitting in a meeting with OrphanAid founder, Lisa Lovatt Smith – who went from working at Vogue to living in Ghana – and leaving completely inspired. While I still haven’t gone on to change the world, I do like leaving this clutch out on display when I start getting a little selfish and need a reminder that my first world problems aren’t all that tragic.
