Union & Fifth Combines Fashion and Philanthropy

I love fashion! I also love giving back to organizations. Which is why I’m always thrilled to hear about a company that is giving back. Union & Fifth is an amazing and I mean AMAZING store. They have super high end fashion from Chanel to Manolo’s and beyond. I fell in love with so many items on there site.

Here I created a couple cute looks to go with this insanely gorg Chanel bag. You can dress it up or down. I think the navy dress could work as long as you threw in a pop of color as well. I love the Chanel booties paired with this bag. I feel it is a given that you need both. Am I right?


As a trailblazing nonprofit designer online consignment store, Union & Fifth gives fashion a home in philanthropy by giving 100% of proceeds to charity. That’s pretty incredible.

How they got started…

In 2012 sisters-in-law Pam Trefler & Christena Reinhard cleaned out their first closet — selling the contents through a typical consignment store, they raised $40,000. Giving away that money changed their lives and Union & Fifth was born (so was a brand new Apple computer lab for students)!

Their mission…

To raise money for incredible non-profits.

Lee Perfect Fit Biana Bootcut Jeans – Product Review


I’m a jeans girl! Always have been.


Recently I had the opportunity to check out the Lee Perfect Fit Biana Bootcut Jeans. And I’m in love! Don’t tell my hubby. 🙂


I tested them out during Blogher ’12 since I knew I would be doing lots of walking. Not only are they super stylish but they were so comfy. Their stretch fabric helps the jeans move with you. No more stiff jeans!


The Bianca Bootcut is in the Perfect Fit line because it features a compression mesh panel that lifts your seat and shapes your tummy.

“Lee strives to develop next generation technologies to help make a woman look and feel her best,” said Rachelle Moley, trend manager at Lee Jeans. “Hundreds of hours, 500 pairs of jeans, a team of experts, and group of real, honest women helped develop the Perfect Fit line.”


The new Perfect Fit collection incorporates Lee’s latest fitinnovation™, the patent pending Shapetastic™ Technology that slims a woman’s silhouette like never before.


  • Compression-mesh Shapetastic Panel slims and controls her tummy while lifting her seat
  • Exclusive mesh construction provides a supportive stretch that’s as comfortable and breathable as it is uplifting
  • Supportive stretch fabric combined with Shapetastic technology feels like having shapewear built into her favorite pair of jeans


The Lee Jeans Perfect Fit collection will be available in mid-July at select retailers and at Lee.com for a suggested retail price of $54.

Blogher ’12 – Friday Style

I was feeling incognito Friday. Ok  not really but my glasses totally worked with my outfit so I wore them. I rarely ever wear my glasses out, which is why I felt I was incognito. But it totally worked.
