Dear world, I have got to say that this outfit made me feel epically cool. My school won a country-wide award for being one of the top Title 1 schools in the country, so we had a huge assembly, the news came (the side of my face made it into the final cut!), and our principal asked all of the teachers to dress nicely.
I actually first wore this outfit to SB's holiday party, but I didn't get any snaps, so I figured I'd outfit recycle for my big day at work!
The greatest part about this outfit is that it is mostly fair trade! My Ikat dress was made at a fair trade cooperative in India and my favorite new necklace was made out of beads that were re-purposed from bullet casings picked up in former conflict areas in Eastern Africa. Pretty cool, huh?
What's sustainable about this outfit?
: the dress is fair trade
: the necklace is fair trade and handmade
: the cuff is fair trade and handmade
: the ring is handmade
