Happy Friday everyone!!! Today I wanted to share the fall lookbook for Two Penny Blue (a brand run by one of my BFF’s Marie Whitney and which I consult for) and show you guys some of the awesome choices for fall as well as discuss the amazing uniform donation concept AND do a little giveaway!

The Vivian Leopard Topper is obviously my favorite- Marie and I longer for a faux fur coat in a truly great leopard/cheetah print with clean lines that didn’t add too much bulk. And this is it- and it will be on my body as soon as my order arrives. :)  In fact, maybe I’ll just deliver in this.

We also helped design the flagship store in Chicago, and I have to say I am obsessed with how the dressing room came out (looking even better with the Vivian leopard topper!

The other new style for fall is the Baxter wool blazer with detachable fur stole collar (which you can also buy on it’s own to wear with other jackets you own- or buy the blazer alone). This style is a bit longer int he body than the other jackets in the collection which is great for us taller gals.

It even works on very, very pregnant ladies (from my pop up shop last night at M. Flynn– which is staying open until the holidays so go in to try a jacket on and peruse the other items in my collection of goods!)

The best part of this brand? The wonderful “give back” concept (read more here).  For every jacket purchased a school uniform is donated to a girl in need in sub-saharan Africa.  Recently 200 uniforms (romper, blouse, skirt, socks, shoes, shorts & t-shirt) were donated to Akili Prep School in Kenya, which they will wear every day to school.  Even better, the uniforms are all locally made, helping support the local economy as well! Look at the joy in these faces!

An easy explanation as to how the model works:

October 11th is Day of the Girl– help spreading the word that a staggering 62 million girls around the world are denied access to education.  Providing a uniform for a girl to be able to attend school and supporting these schools is so important in helping reduce those numbers!

In honor of Day of the Girl, Two Penny Blue is offering a $200 gift card towards a jacket of your choice (resulting in a uniform donation!)  All you have to do is follow them on Instagram and comment here with which style you would choose!
