Styled Fairly: Your Fall Color Moods

What's Your Fall Color Mood: Winter's Coming

A few weeks ago, Rachel over at Fair Vanity asked her readers to style a fall ensemble around one fair fashion item using one of our Monday Color Moods [what do I mean by fair? see here!]. We were so tickled with the results that we had to share them as well. Thank you to everyone who participated, we loved seeing our color inspiration put to such fair and stylish use!

Ariana from Mode Marteau chose Winter Is Coming to style her gorgeously thrifted digs (above images).

What's Your Fall Color Mood: Glazed & Confused 1

This super stylin’ collage by Amanda is inspired by Glazed and Confused, with the boots and necklace both made in the USA.

What's Your Fall Color Mood: Shiitake Sunrise

Suchi styled her outfit around Shiitake Sunrise, featuring a laundry list of fair assets.

What's Your Fall Color Mood: Dayglow & Diamonds

We love Waverly’s daring interpretation of Dayglow & Diamonds! Another great match-up of thrift store finds.

What's Your Fall Color Mood: Glazed & Confused 2

Cynthia also chose Glazed & Confused as her inspiration, styling her Amour Vert top with bright golden skinnies. Nice print choice, if we do say so ourselves.


Hop over to Fair Vanity for more details about each outfit and the lovely ladies who submitted them!

What’s Your Color Mood?

Rachel's Hint of Mint from Fair Vanity via Aaryn West

Have you ever wondered how to incorporate our Monday Color Moods into your own personal style? We teamed up with Rachel of Fair Vanity, a Washington D.C. based blog focused on fair trade fashion and accessories, to bring you a fun style challenge with exactly that in mind…


And it really couldn’t be much easier. Start by picking out a color board to use as your inspiration, and style yourself an ensemble featuring at least ONE fair trade item. This includes anything made from sustainable materials, made in the USA [or your home country, for my international peeps], vegan, organic, up-cycled, vintage or hand-made. Snap a photo to submit by the November 1st deadline to see your style featured on the Fair Vanity blog! Camera shy? We’ve got you covered. Show us your color mood with a crafty collage like the one below.

Rachel chose A Hint of Mint, and even I got in on the action just to show you all how simple it can be [choosing Primary Agenda]. Email your image to Rachel by Nov. 1 to see your style on Fair Vanity, and see the original post for full details and guidelines.
