Meadow Sweet necklace in Yellow: C/O 31 Bits
Real quick: I'm glad I could bring the lulz on Halloween with my outfit and I am also doubly glad that a bunch of you guys got what I was. True fact: the next morning as Grant and I were driving around we saw an Asian woman wearing practically the exact same outfit (all the same basic pieces, even with a plastic bag) walking down the street. Another fun fact: I tried to pawn that visor off on my grandma, an Asian woman, and even she wouldn't take that thing. She DID however, take the cat sweater and the tasteful elastic gingham pants.
In other news, see that pretty necklace I'm wearing? 31 Bits, a local Orange County company, reached out to me to see if I wanted to incorporate a piece of jewelry into my regular outfit spiel and obviously I said yes! The reason?
31 Bits is a company that's using fashion and design in order to empower women to rise above poverty. Specifically, they are working with displaced Northern Ugandan women and are purchasing jewelry from them each month providing these women with an immediate, consistent, and fair income. Pieces are made from 100% recycled paper and local materials.
What's my point? Well, the holidays are coming up so if you were planning on buying some jewelry for a few special people on your list, keep 31 Bits in the back of your noggin! They're definitely a great company (and cause!) to support. Buying a piece from them will really be a gift that keeps on giving.
