Hope empowers, enriches and inspires. Hope gives us the courage to face our fears and conquer the obstacles we encounter. Hope enables us to confront the unimaginable, and to believe we will prevail. Hope is beautiful.
Miche celebrates Hope through a select line of designer handbag shells and jewelry, with proceeds from each Hope sale going to fund organizations who deal in the preservation and production of hope every day. 10 months of the year, the Miche’s Hope Initiative funds the fight to find a cure for cancer. The other 2 months, are devoted to other vital causes. March and April 2014, Miche’s Hope sales benefit the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
I want to share with you some of my favorite Miche Hope styles currently available.
Hope comes in many forms – it roars, it whispers, it laughs. Miche’s designers have brought a wide range of styles and personalities to its Hope line, ensuring that there will be a Hope shell or piece of jewelry to fit into every wardrobe, so every woman can find a measure and symbol of Hope that suits her own individual style.
Miche Hope Yellow is a whimsical graffiti style with cheery yellow and black on a silver faux leather background, proclaiming “One does not define Hope, one lives it!” – a quote from a cancer survivor – one of many who have provided direct inspiration for the Miche Hope designs. Many other messages of Hope are inscribed on this charming, playful shell. To add Miche Hope Yellow to your collection, please click here. I so appreciate your business!
Miche Prima Hope Black is very edgy - urban chic. “It’s not about living or dying…it’s about living until I die” “No regrets” “I live in strength and confidence” “I found more beauty in the world, and had more faith in humanity”. These proclamations of hope are fierce and strong – making Miche Hope Black a definite statement accessory.
With Miche’s denim Hope Blue, the messages of Courage, Hope, Joy, Love, Faith, Dream and Hope take on a more casual look and feel. This Hope is not a gauntlet fiercely thrown, but instead a comfortable and cherished friend – well-known, and well-loved. Miche Hope Blue is available in Demi and Prima sizes.

Miche Hope Paisley is a pretty, feminine style, with the word “hope” inscribed in subtle script within the paisley swirls. Hope here is sweet, and quite and personal. It lightens the heart and brightens the day.
With light pink and dark against a background and accented with taupe, this is a Hope style that transitions easily from one season to the next.
Against a background of white canvas, doves in silhouettes of charcoal, taupe and tan flit among leafy branches and blooms, with occasional touches in palest yellow and green. Accented by pebble textured taupe faux leather, and with the word “Hope” subtly worked into the design, Miche Hope Dove is light-hearted and playful,

In October of 2013, Miche released its very first piece of Hope jewelry – the Hope Bracelet. Lovely and chic in its simplicity, playful in design, this is sterling silver with the word HOPE as it’s detail. The heart-shaped “O” is filled with pave set rhinestones to add a bit of sparkle to your symbol of Hope. The easy hook catch to either side of the word HOPE adds additional interest to the style, while being a functional, secure and genuinely easy catch to set.

I find the Miche Hope Clover Accent for the Single Pendant Necklace Base to be the most inspirational of all of the Hope designs to date.
The colorful, hand-made beads that adorn this fabulous pendant are created by women of war-torn Uganda, who have reclaimed their lives from desperate poverty, disease and despair. Working with magazines read and donated by women in America, the women of the Kaberamaido Cooperative now are making a living for themselves and their children with their hand crafted, brilliantly colored beads, greatly prized for the creation of fashion jewelry.
These craftsman take old magazines – and a lot of hope – and with them, create beauty, and a self-sustaining industry. Miche’s head designer used these same beads to fashion a Hope Necklace Accent proceeds to benefit women and children in American seeking aid and protection from domestic violence. This is a beautiful example of women helping women – to help women. And I find it to be magical.

Select either Silver, Gold or Pearl for the pendant base, and add the inspiring Miche Hope Clover Accent for a completely different look – and a poignant symbol of enduring hope.
Hope means something different to different people. To me, Hope is anything but passive. It is not simply a wish for something to somehow be better some day. Hope fuels drive and determination, and provides direction for them both. Hope does not just wait for a better day. Instead, Hope inspires us to live the best today that we possibly can – thereby building a better tomorrow. Hope does not always lead us to the better health, the better circumstances we yearn for, but it most certainly does lead to a better self. And this - I do assure you – is a truly beautiful thing,
This post is dedicated to my beautiful Mother, who has more strength and courage in her gentle soul than she ever imagined. She is my inspiration in so many ways. I love you, Mom. I always, ALWAYS will.

P.S. Remember the apparent fragility of the butterfly wing at the top of this article? A Monarch butterfly’s wings carry him over 1,000 miles in one of Nature’s most astounding migrations. Hope, too, is ever so much stronger than it seems…
