I love finding and supporting new fashion brands, and my latest find, thanks to Elements of Style blogger Erin Gates, is Two Penny Blue, a company with a global mission that designs a collection of tailored jackets and blazers.
According to the Two Penny Blue website – “For every jacket purchased, a school uniform is donated to a girl in need in Africa – opening the door to her education, increasing her self-esteem and providing the opportunity for a brighter future. Two Penny Blue was founded in 2010 by designer, Marie Whitney. She created the collection with the dream of using fashion as a way to educate, empower and inspire young women and children around the world. The Two Penny Blue line is proudly made in the United States with extraordinary quality and care.”
I love the concept and also love how the jackets are versatile. Since I spend my days working in an office, I’m always trying to find pieces that can dress up a pair of pants or a simple black dress, and Two Penny Blue is the answer to my fashion prayers.
The blazers, which are a little under $400 each, are a little pricey, if you are on a budget, but can you really put a cost on quality and fit? Well, maybe…but everyone deserves to splurge every now and then, and a blazer from Two Penny Blue is a great investment piece. Especially if you buy a classic color that can be paired with just about anything.
