One of my favorite charities is fashionABLE. The fashionABLE mission is to create sustainable business for Africans so they aren’t dependent upon charity, but instead earn the dignity of a job.

This week fashionABLE is celebrating their 3rd birthday with a 3-day mega sale- get 30% off EVERYTHING in their shop.

I have never seen them mark their prices down this low and with Christmas around the corner, it’s a great time to shop.

New Leather Line

fashionABLE just released a beautiful leather line and the 30% off sale makes all pieces incredibly reasonable. The founder was kind enough last month to send me the Tigist clutch from the line. I am IN LOVE with it and am always looking for excuses to use it.

For instance, take this week. I am at Mayo Clinic for a blogging conference. While packing, I slipped the clutch in my suitcase thinking I may prefer carrying it to my normal bulky purse (great decision!). My dear college friend Molly drove to Rochester last night so we could have dinner together. It was SO good to see her – and the perfect opportunity to use the clutch.

Before going out to eat, we took a few photos of the clutch to use in this post. Molly raved about how it was the perfect leather clutch and that she wanted it – ha!

Clutch2It is regularly $78, but with the sale it is just $54.

fashionABLE also has two other pieces in their leather collection – the Kalkidan wallet (regularly $22, on sale for $15) and the Fikire iPad folio (regularly $52, on sale for $36).


Of course, fashionABLE is known for its fabulous scarves, which range in price from $28-$65. With the discount, you can get them starting at under $20! These are not cheap scarves like you buy at a big box store. They are thick and beautiful.

I hope you’ll support fashionABLE and go purchase something during this awesome sale. Because frankly, you aren’t supporting just a brand – you are supporting real women. When fashionABLE sent me that package with the purse, they included this card.

FashionableCardI teared up seeing the names of some of the women of fashionABLE, written by their own hands.

They are mamas, just like you and me. They are working to support their families. Our purchases make a difference.

I love that fashionABLE believes in the deep importance and value that comes from giving vulnerable women opportunities through employment.

Happy birthday fashionABLE!

I can’t get your links to work. When I click on them, it keeps saying “This link is not active.”

Gosh, I don’t know why! They seem to be working on my end? Maybe refresh your browser?
