In addition to managing RSP, our editor and founder, Nacole Gray consults, writes and styles for a range of clients in the fashion realm. As a style expert for Enlightened.org (a new e-commerce site which enables you to give back to the causes dearest to you as you shop your favorite brands) Gray has not only curated products that align with current trends but she also sits down with fashion influentials who support this revolutionary way to shop.
Most recently, Gray chatted with the founder of Closet Rich and formerly of Rachel Zoe Digital, Elizabeth Kott. It's safe to say she's an authority on fashion and personal style. Which designers are on her radar and which key fashion essentials does she have listed for spring? Read on to find out...
Why do we especially love her? Kott explains, "I'll never forget when a fellow peer in a college gender studies course told me the fact that I was 'wearing 5 inch platforms meant I couldn't possibly identify myself as a feminist.' To me, the idea that I couldn't care about the greater good and put effort towards looking good while doing so, was preposterous! Closet Rich was developed to shift this way of thought." Hmmm, sounds like her way of thought totally aligns with ours.
Read on to find out which items she recommends for the season ahead. Shop her Spring 2013 picks and find a cause to donate to. That's right, look cool like Elizabeth and make the world a better place all at the same time, thanks to Enlightened.org.
"I adore how Enlightened is supporting the same idea behind Closet Rich - it's like, ya go ahead and treat yourself, AND while you're at it, go ahead and help a cause that speaks to you too!"
