#givingjoy free cashmere giveaway from state cashmere

want free cashmere? join #givingjoy to get your free gift from state cashmere, no strings attached

How about “free” for an innovative campaign? I don’t often write about campaigns, but something about the #givingjoy story by State Cashmere just couldn’t go unnoticed. Why? They’re not really promoting anything… They’re giving their summer collection away. For free. No strings attached. When I first received the details from my friends at State Cashmere, I was sure I was reading something incorrectly, or just not quite understanding. But as it turns out, I headed to their site, shopped their summer collection and was able to redeem a free cashmere tee just for subscribing. A message from the CEO Has Rone, “As a token of my appreciation, I want to gift you with a garment from my spring/summer collection. This gift is exclusively for you as a genuine thank you for all your support of State Cashmere. I also want to invite you to take part in our #GivingJoy campaign. This campaign gives an opportunity for your followers to gift someone special with free summer cashmere during these challenging times. On us, no strings attached.” …

keep yourself in check

While 2020 continues to prove more uncertain by the day, it’s important for us to always challenge ourselves introspectively. If your actions, motivations, and state of being are not being lead by love, check yourself. Ask yourself why. Look at yourself, straight in the eyes, and determine what will drive you. What will motivate you. photography:JOSH WOLFE | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | check blazer:H&M | sunglasses c/o:SLOANE EYEWEAR | slip on shoes c/o:NAKED FEET We cannot force others to change, but we can lead by taking our own steps in the right direction.

decadent luxury fashion

extravagance and ice, and imma shine like gloss

Something about the the way the light moves across the facets like sunlight over water… sparkling with each ripple. It feels like a movie scene in slow motion. Sharp edges, the clear depth of each crystal, a bright flash with the slightest shift towards the sun. After a full month of quarantine clothes… it was time to mix it up. photography:KRISTINA PETRICK & JOSH WOLFE | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | shirtdress c/o:AS BY DF | chandelier earrings c/o:CAPRICE DECADENT | gold ring c/o: ANA LUIS JEWELRY   There’s something powerful in draping yourself in luxuries, like a queen feeling her crown settle on her head. Flowing fabrics, decadent embellishments, something sexy, but subtle. The kind of adornment that makes you raise an eyebrow, jut out your chin and crave a $40 cocktail on the rooftops of Dubai. Extravagance. While I often speak about minimalism and the simple joys in life, there’s something to be said of treating yourself on occasion.
