As many of you know, I’m a librarian. And when it comes to fashion, librarians aren’t always known for their fashion sense, but I’m trying to change that perception! And if you’d like to see some more modern day, rock star librarians, be sure to check out This Is What A Librarian Looks Like – you may be surprised that we don’t all rock the bun and glasses look.
However, being a librarian means I can’t help myself when it comes to literacy inspired looks and when I saw this adorable library due date stamp headscarf, I knew it was right up my alley.
And when Kellie (nice name, by the way 🙂 ), the owner of The Lemondime wanted to partner, I was ecstatic!
Not only is this a GREAT piece that you can wear several different ways in your hair, but by purchasing from The Lemondime’s store, you are helping employ women who are at-risk and survivors of human trafficking.
The fabric from the headwrap comes from a local Indianapolis quilt store called Crimson Tate and they hand stamp each piece. So you’re getting a limited, unique piece that not many others are going to have and was handmade by one of the women The Lemondime works with.
You can buy the fabric from them as well and I’ll let you in on a little secret – they have other library inspired patterns too, so if you sew, go check Crimson Tate out immediately!
For more information on The Lemondime, be sure to watch their YouTube video for what inspired Kellie to start her company and how she’s helping these women with her store.
