Chasing Davies: Soft Pastels & 31 Bits

March 14, 2012

Soft Pastels & 31 Bits

{Cardi - J.Crew, Tee - Forever21, Necklace - c/o 31 Bits,  Skirt - Target, Leggings - Loft, Flats - ASOS}

The sweet people over at 31 Bits not only (and most importantly) use fashion and design to empower women to rise above poverty, but also sent me a necklace to try out myself. The Willow Knot necklace is what I'm wearing & loving, and even more so, the story behind it.

31 Bits is located in Southern California, but they work with women in Northern Uganda who are making jewelry out of recycled paper.  By selling the jewelry at 31 Bits, they not only provide a sustainable monthly income for these women, but also education and development programs that prepare the women for future careers.  I love when fashion, sustainability and social mindedness come together.
