two penny blue

lookbook6marie whitney created two penny blue with the hope of using “fashion as a way to educate, empower and inspire young women and children around the world.”

it seems she’s succeeded.

classic tailoring. bespoke details. effortless sophistication. pristine packaging. unique and small-batch designs. 100% made in nyc.  and the best part? for every jacket purchased, a school uniform is donated to an african girl, “opening the door to her education, increasing her self-esteem and providing the opportunity for a brighter future.”

i like this one (stripes!), and this one (coral!!) and obviously the mint colored one (more of my mint-obsession). i also love the look the model is wearing above.

what’s your favorite piece?

plus – scarves!  and read more here, and see the full collection here.
