If I could describe my style in a few words those words would be versatile, approachable, and authentic. I have always been most interested in classic, timeless pieces that 1) don’t go out of style, and 2) can be mixed and matched to create hundreds of outfit ideas, all within my own wardrobe.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved to put outfits together. Details matter down to the last button, stitch, and clasp, and as I’ve grown into my own brand and style, those details have often told a story, or supported a bigger cause. From supporting missionaries to small businesses, to making environmentally conscious purchases, I love discovering the details.
One of my all time favorite accessories to incorporate is a watch. My grandmother used to collect watches, and share them with me. It’s a truly fond memory I have with her. But instead of having hundreds (yes, hundreds) of watches, one for each color in her wardrobe, I have a few, neutral statement pieces. My newest being my JORD Wood Watch (pronounced “yode”), the Frankie 38 Ebony & Gold. With many colors and styles available, you are bound to find a watch to match your own wardrobe, and your budget.
What’s another favorite accessory of mine? A good handbag. Luckily, I can now get both watches and handbags from JORD! JORD’s Suberhide Handbags are a new release made from Portuguese cork and vegan leather to create a versatile (there’s my word again), tear, abrasion, and stain-resistant exterior.
Not only can the bag withstand heavy use, but it’s sustainable. The Portuguese cork comes from the cork oak tree. This tree is one of three types of trees in the world that can be stripped of its bark without killing the tree. The bark of each cork oak can be harvested every nine years for up to 200 years.
In addition to the fact that the bark of the cork oak grows back, the regrowth also pulls large amounts of carbon dioxide from the air. By harvesting cork oak, greenhouse gases are reduced, and the tree itself requires no pruning, maintenance, or pesticides for regrowth.
Other notable details about JORD’s Suberhide Handbags are:
- Tear and scratch resistant
- Water resistant
- Flame retardant (The material is actually used for space shuttle construction, cool right?)
- Highly elastic, and maintains shape after compression or creasing
- Stain resistant
- Easy to clean with gentle soap and warm water
