I’m so excited to let you know about a collaboration I’m doing with Ivory Row, a line of beautiful, reasonably priced, 100% cashmere sweaters. First let’s talk about the sweaters, and then I’ll tell you about the foster families:
Here’s what I wrote about Ivory Row when the line launched two years ago and it still holds true 100%: Nothing says casual cool quite like a baseball shirt tucked into leather pants or high-waisted denim. Make the baseball shirt out of the softest cashmere and you’ve gone to a whole new level.
That’s where Grace Chang, the designer behind Ivory Row, is going with her line of 100% cashmere sweaters. Plus, the price points are accessible: the baseball sweater is $175 and prices cap off at $275 for a fisherman sweater.
Grace and I go way back—we’ve been Fashion Week Friends (FWFsTM) for many years, and every season when I make it to NYC, I look forward to spending some quality time with this incredibly chic and badass woman.
And now I love her even more for giving me the opportunity to partner with her brand and raise money for one of my favorite organizations, Family Builders.
Their mission to help find permanent, loving families for children and youth in the foster care system—that’s their only goal. They connect children with individuals and couples who can provide safe, stable, nurturing families. Their services are free and confidential, and include adoption, foster care, and other forms of permanency.
Family Builders welcomes traditional families; single-parent families; both men and women; gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender families, transracial and multiracial families, and all other families as prospective adoptive parents. Family Builders is committed to serving all families equally with dignity and respect.
Their incredible staff and board are made up of individuals who believe strongly that children have the right to a solid and loving family. They were instrumental in helping my husband and I navigate a trying time and achieve the most important goal of our lives: to adopt a baby.
And now it’s time to get shopping! For every sweater purchased from my curated Ivory Row shop, Family Builders will receive 15% of the sale. Take cozy cashmere, thrown in a little charity and good feeling and you’ve got a winning combination!
Which Ivory Row sweater is your favorite? I love them all, but I’m heavily eyeing the cashmere sweatshirt—utter genius. Happy shopping!!
