This is my third post about MarketPlace: Handwork of India, a company that’s working hard to bring about real change in women’s lives.
MarketPlace has a long history of helping low-income women run their own artisan businesses, and support their families. Here’s an excerpt from their Mission Statement:
And also: their clothing and home decor items are truly original, beautiful, and reasonably priced. So, a big win when we shop there.
|Beautiful, colorful pillows, curtains and more.|
MarketPlace invited me to sample one of their new pieces for Spring/Summer, and I chose this reversible wrap skirt.
It’s got pockets and a generous wrap, so no unexpected flashing. I’ve
loved this style since a was in college, and had quite a collection of
cotton wraps back then.
I think the skirt will look fab with all different color tees for summer. For the office I chose a simple black top from GAP, a thrifted pendant, and my ever-cool Cydwoq booties. The print on the booties is a perfect contrast with the skirt!
|The print looks like a dove of peace.|
|Could the booties be more perfect with this skirt?|
|A peek at the reverse side. Oops, booties are unzipped.|
Please have a look at MarketPlace’s new catalog and see if anything there tickles you. And have a terrific Tuesday, and stay fabulous,
