Bright Ideas Giveaway

So what are you waiting for? Read the story, shop her picks – and don’t forget to enter for a chance to win the must-have bag of the season!
In Rachel’s words: I saw this clutch on someone at an event last weekend in Austin and I literally squealed. I squealed because I knew when I got back home my Noonday order would be in and then I would be the girl with the darling little bag. When I did get it in the mail all my expectations were exceeded. The Haitian leather feels like butter and the bright pop of color adds some life to every outfit.
How it’s made: The clutch is made in Haiti by an Artisan Business led by Cenise, a talented leatherworker. As a result of his dignified job, Cenise has grown in confidence and is now able to support his daughter and give her the opportunities she deserves.
In Rachel’s words: I don’t want to imply that Noonday named this necklace after me. I mean, I want to dream that it’s true but I don’t want to spread rumors. But…if they were to name a piece of jewelry after me it would definitely be this sort of gorgeousness. I love that it’s perfect for layering and since the colors are muted it means you can wear it with just about anything!
How it’s made: This piece is named for Rachel, who is the daughter of an Artisan in Uganda. Before Rachel’s mother, Olivia, had a job as an Artisan, she couldn’t afford to care for her daughter and in her desperation was about to leave her at an orphanage. When Olivia met Jalia and Daniel, the leaders of our Partner Business, they offered her a job making paper bead jewelry. Today Olivia is not only able to keep her family together, but to send Rachel to school, where she is thriving.
Sunny Day Necklace
In Rachel’s words: Real talk? This is my favorite piece in the whole spring line-up! Mostly because I love bright colors and this necklace is in your face with all that sunshine-y yellow. Also, I have distinct memories of my Aunt Linda wearing a lemon yellow beaded necklace to church every Sunday circa 1986 and I feel like this is my modern day version of her signature style.
How it’s made: This piece is made with paper beads by Artisans in Uganda and was inspired by the Happy Day Necklace, one of Noonday Collection’s very first styles. Noonday Collection has partnered with Artisan Entrepreneurs Jalia and Daniel for more than five years. This style is a happy reminder of the power of long-term partnership!
La Bella Bag
In Rachel’s words: How gorgeous is this bag? Seriously! It’s like the brightest, happiest, coolest tote I’ve ever seen and there’s enough room in it to hold a family of four! I feel like it’s the perfect mama-tote because you can use it this summer for everything from soccer practice, to beach bag, to a weekender on that much needed getaway for you and your love.
How it’s made: This bag is made by women in Ayacucho, Peru who are able to work from their homes, allowing them to earn an income while caring for their children. They use traditional embroidery techniques and motifs that preserve their cultural heritage.

But more than anything I strive for our content to be achievable. I want to show you the pretty things: the perfectly styled room, the gorgeous dress, the shiny hair. I also want to show you the truth. The truth is that I’ve struggled with postpartum depression.The truth is that I have stretch marks from three pregnancies.

Because if we ever meet in real life, I hope you’d use those same words to describe me. xo, Rach.
