Game Day Glam!

By: Cinthya Rubio, Marketing and Communications Director @ Our Hands For Hope

The 2014 World Series is the 110th edition of Major League Baseball’s championship series. This year two amazing teams, The San Francisco Giants and The Kansas City Royals, are facing each other to see who takes the title and bragging rights of being Champion.

Today game 7 will be played and the team that wins takes it all!

Usually when attending a baseball game or party, it is customary to wear the team colors that you are cheering for. If you have a team t-shirt or jersey, that will definitely score you some extra fashion points. Showing off your fashion sense at these events is usually not a prerequisite to attend, but have fun with it, it is “America’s Pastime” after all!

I have put together two looks for todays World Series. The name of the game is “Game Day Glam“!

 Dress up that team t-shirt! One of this seasons trends is leather or pleather. Dont want to look like you arrived on a Harley Motorcycle?
Soften up the look by adding a lacy “Greta” Scarf!

 

KC Royals GameDay

 

Blue Jeans are always a great go-to wardrobe piece but for some extra glam look for some that have a metallic finish, glitzy and shiny accents are coming strong this season. Add some extra texture to this sleek look Luchita Sweater and a Mirna beanie

Our Hands for Hope Pop Up Shop

by Alicia Fischer, Communications @ Our Hands For Hope

Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we set up shop at the CornerStone Sonoma along highway 121 in Sonoma, California. We were stationed at Potter Green & Co showing our knits in all their wonderful colors, displaying how to wear them, and telling the story of how  they are created and brought to you straight from Peru.

There was a great response to the event, and even made a second appearance the next day! Check out some photos around the beautiful CornerStone Sonoma and see how our knits blend in beautifully to complement the scenery.

Fall Trend: Beanies and Booties

By: Alicia Fischer, Communications @ Our Hands For Hope

Fall is usually a time for long, comfy sweaters and tall, knee-high boots. But this upcoming season is shortening things up with beanies and booties reigning over the runway.

The 2013 Fall New York Fashion Week (NYFW) had designers ranging from BCBG to Tommy Hilfiger featuring styles including beanies of all colors and sizes.
