This holiday make the season a little brighter for others. Giving back is a great thing to do all year round, but the holidays tend to bring out the charitable side in most people and we are particularly excited to announce a brand new partnership for Goldfaden MD this holiday.

GOLDFADEN MD teams up with I AM THAT GIRL, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization that encourages girls to Be, Love and Express who they are through positive education, community and media content, turning self-doubt into self-love.  Through this partnership, GOLDFADEN MD is working to bring awareness to beauty from a skin health standpoint and institute a layer of efficient self acceptance.

“We are particularly excited to be part of this charity, as working with young women to increase their self perception and boost self confidence is the core of our business,” says Lauren Wolk.

From November 15th through December 31st 2013, GOLDFADEN MD will be donating 10% of proceeds from their Radiant Renewal Starter Kit to I AM THAT GIRL, helping young girls battle common skin concerns that often lead to insecurities. Aimed at boosting self-acceptance and skin-health awareness through skincare products, the Radiant Renewal Starter Kit includes three powerhouses Doctor’s Scrub, Pure Start and Vital Boost, targeted towards a flawless, luminescent complexion.

“True beauty goes beyond skin deep, but with the pressures of today’s society, it’s evident that everyone, young women especially, are striving for that close-to-perfect skin. With the promotion of the Radiant Renewal Starter Kit, we strive to provide these women with the tools needed to obtain healthy skin and as a result, have the confidence to face the day to day pressures,”Lisa Goldfaden explains.

Coinciding with the launch event to highlight the partnership, a social media giveaway initiative will be activated to spread hopeful messages to young females. Make sure to follow @GoldfadenMD on Instagram to learn more about how you can participate! #WeAreThatGirl / @IAmThatGirl / @GoldfadenMD

We Are That Girl!

Living out of a suitcase for weeks at a time means that you don’t have an extra inch of precious carry-on space for both a futuristic moisture-wicking high-tech top and a cool vintage muscle tank. I still live by the same nomad philosophy at home by keeping my wardrobe lean and choosing items that look streetwear rad but will be comfortable for going straight to a salty, dusty or rocky adventure.

Goldfaden-Fall-active

Somewhere in between hardcore camping and an afternoon stroll in nature, here’s what I can’t wait to wear this Fall that fulfills both the fashionable and functional checklists.

POLER Willow reversible poncho (http://www.polerstuff.com/collections/outerwear/products/willow-reversible-poncho-sky)

Lightweight for compressing into a backpack, Poler’s Willow poncho hits on the cape trend and looks more sculpturally cool than a traditional windbreaker. Choose the color—reversible sky blue or mustard—based on your mood and outfit of the day.

BRIXTON Detroit shirt (http://www.brixton.com/brixton-products/brixton-womens/brixton-womens-tops/detroit.html)

There’s something about men’s shirts that hang off a woman’s body in an effortless tomboy way, plus this Brixton baseball tee has a cool athletic-looking twist.

Teva De La Vina boot (http://www.teva.com/womens-de-la-vina-low-comfortable-riding-boots/887278268161,default,pd.html?start=2&cgid=women-boots)

I live by Teva’s hiking shoes for uphill walks on dirt trails. I love the idea of these modern boots that have toothy rubber soles and comfortable cushioning for walking all day anywhere, but never looking like a tourist in sensible walking shoes.

Michi Rifical leggings at Carbon 38 (https://carbon38.com/marketplace/rifical-legging#)

It’s not where you can wear these Michi leggings, but more like where can you not wear these leggings? The sleek styles lines of the sheer mesh adds a dressed-up vibe and hello, they are leggings—run around in them.

STANCE Vortex socks (http://www.stance.com/shop/vortex-2996)

Don’t forget about your socks. I wear Stance socks in fun patterns to show slivers of vivid color every day.

We are so happy to showcase a post from one of our favorite blogs, Style Wax Poetic! Kristen is such a style icon and we are dying over her Fall fashion picks and think that you will too!

By Kristen of Style Wax Poetic

It’s time for pumpkin flavored lattes, chic oversized sweaters, boots and layering. We love fall fashion. Getting ready for fall is easier than you think, you’ll just need to add a couple amazing staples that you’ll wear throughout the season, which will make you feel excited and renewed.  As as a fashion blogger, I spend A LOT of time thinking of what pieces are the best investments and how I can take what I already have in my closet and make it new again! Re-inventing what you already have in your wardrobe is key. Here are a few pieces I’m coveting for the season.

 

Y.A.S Henni Coat in Orange – this color is appearing everywhere! I’m a big supporter of color, after moving from New York to LA, I realize I have way too much black. Make a statement with a beautiful coat that will brighten up a possibly gloomy cold day. Orange isn’t your color? Try Tibi’s Bonded Shearling Fencing Coat or Club Monaco’s Carolyn Jacket I love the multiple materials and colors. Another goodie is this Jenni Kayne Pony Panel Coat, with just a touch of leopard.

It took me a minute to re-adopt the idea of plaid, but after seeing how cute it can be in a dress with boots or adding a touch of color with a plaid scarf, I’m totally on board.

Over-the-Knee boots are SO the item this fall. Worried about looking like Julia Roberts in Pretty Women? Don’t worry, as long as you don’t pair them with a skin tight dress, you wont, trust me. Wear them with skinny jeans or leather leggings and a huge over-sized sweater for a chic, cool and sexy look. These Chinese  Laundry boots are super chic and just the right price.  Also, these Alice and Olivia boots are to die for.

To stay in the game this season, it’s key to bring your hat game.  From leather caps to fedoras, I’m loving them all. This grey number by Michael Stars will literally go with anything. Or, wear a leather cap with any dressy look to tone it down a notch for daytime.

​Seriously, how effortlessly cool does she look in this l vegan leather top by BCBG? L​ea​ther is another must​-​have these season and seasons to come. From leather tops in black or tan, leather leggings with boots and a casual t-shirt, or caps hats​, you’ll make a statement with leather this season!
