Fashion for a Cause

Dress: Tucker for Target, $30 // Shoes: Old Navy, $15 // Necklace: Courtesy of 31 Bits

I've featured this dress several times before on the blog, but there's something extra special about this outfit -- the necklace from 31 Bits! 31 Bits is a socially-minded business that uses fashion and design to empower women to rise above poverty.  They work with women in Northern Uganda who make jewelry out of recycled paper. By selling the jewelry here, they not only provide a sustainable monthly income for the women, but also education and development programs that prepare the women for future careers. Their lovely new line for spring just came out. Check it out!

Love this look. I'm a jewelry artist and I get similar paper beads from a vocational school for freed female slaves in Ghana, Africa. Actually most of my jewelry is fair trade so I love that you're featuring this jewelry. The dress is super cute too!
