BFW 2015 and Tribe Kelley –
This being my second year in Birmingham and my second Birmingham Fashion Week, unfortunately, I was only able to make it to the first day as I was deathly ill for the last two. Thankfully my friend and fashion photographer Mary C Fehr (she shot this post and this one) was able to provide me with images for the show I most wanted to see.
Tribe Kelley is designed by husband/wife team (not unlike my husband and me) Brittney and Brian Kelley, who BTW are the cutest freaking couple! I was supposed to meet up with them while they were in town but my sickness took me away from an amazing opportunity. Brittney and Brian live the life that my husband and I aspire to live. In her words “Both Brian and I are blessed enough to be modern-day nomads, venturing out to experience all walks of culture and vogue.” Aren’t they just the coolest?! Obviously, you can see some of the pics from their line above which are so amazing I wish I was there in person to see it. Though you may recognize the headbands and pants I am wearing below from their line, I will admit to wearing the head-piece all wrong as bangs don’t really allow for it to be worn across your forehead. Time to get some highlights and these bangs are on their way out! Just be sure to check out their site because you may not be able to walk away without buying something.
Wearing Tribe Kelley Tobacco Bells and their Leather Piece headband, a MLM Willow Crop, Raga Large Bag and Small Crossbody Bag, HelFyre Sunglasses, a Tribe + Glory Necklace, JORD Watch, and a bracelet (Slate Crystal Chain Cuff) from my RocksBox.
Now I also need to tell you about a couple of my accessories. First up this really cool wood watch by JORD. At first, I was skeptical about a watch made of wood but after taking a look at their collection I found one with a turquoise face and I love turquoise! The whole Cora series are beautiful like this one with the rose gold face, stunning!
Also, there’s my beaded necklace by Tribe + Glory which was handcrafted in Zirobwe Uganda and the beads are made of recycled paper! In fact, all of their jewelry is handcrafted by the women in the village of Zirobwe and 100% of the proceeds go right back to this beautiful village. How cool is that? If you click the link above you can read the beautiful story in its entirety. If you have a few bucks to spend and feel like giving back, this is the place to do it.
