Bridge & Burn Fall 2016

It's been one week since the results of the U.S. election came through.

While I think there's danger in going back to normalcy too quick (since, as John Oliver will tell you, this is not normal), I do want to continue to use my platforms to support small businesses in every way that I can. Aside from just plain loving the goods that independent brands like Bridge & Burn produce, I think encouraging entrepreneurship and the growth of small-medium size businesses is one of the best things we can do for the economy and each other.

So. While I do have a lot to say about the state of this nation and the world, and I primarily want to champion women and those who need it most right now in all ways possible, I also don't want to lose my focus on giving some love to the very good independent brands out there.

Portland's Bridge & Burn being one of them – who already sets a fine example for all of us in their One Perfect For Good program.

I was lucky enough to work with these very good folks last year. Every single Bridge & Burn piece I own, I wear regularly – meaning maybe a little too much. Add to that rotation the OUTSIDER Tee (fittingly, the name of their fall campaign) and the Joyce in Charcoal and the inside of my closet is close to resembling their flagship store.

But let's go back to the Joyce. Oh, the Joyce. This coat, picture below, has quickly become my number one fall jacket, thanks to its roomy fit, large pockets, and incredibly warm contrast lining.

As an honorary member of the constantly cold club, I generally end up layering all of my jackets to keep away the chill. Not here, folks – the Joyce has been the perfect companion in this sometimes freezing, sometimes hot November and, I'm sure it will continue to be as the weather cools off even more.

To help stimulate the economy a little bit and encourage some good old fashioned, made in America shopping, the good folks at Bridge & Burn are offering 10% off with code SECONDFLOOR10

If you're looking to take advantage of the discount, I completely recommend the Joyce. Not in the mood for outerwear? Go for the Ellis Pants – aside from being super soft and falling just so, they're also crazy flattering and will cause many a compliment.
