Five Fall 2014 Trends: Fair Trade & Fabulous
October was Fair Trade Month. A few decades ago, this might not have meant much to your average shopper. But today’s consumers expect more from their shopping experience: organic, sustainable, ethically-produced goods provide healthier options for both body and mind. Nowadays, shoppers can think globally and shop locally, no matter where they live.
Here in Austin, we offer lots of gorgeous items from around the world, many of which are trending this fall.
Read on for a few of our fave fall fashion picks:
1.Trend: Chunky Knits & Ponchos
Cuddly knits for chilly days. Perfect for the chilly weather we’re getting this weekend!
2. Trend: Geometric Jewelry
Classic and simple, the circle shape gets a fresh update with a yarn-ball texture. This is a great day-to-night set.

OK, so it isn’t exactly chain mail, but our pop tab jewelry is a close facsimile of this look: Punk + eco = chic.
4. Trend: Artsy Stitching
Our easy-to-clean cotton canvas make up bags feature eye-catching strips of fabric in fall friendly orange and green.
