Did you enjoy yesterday’s post, Where to Buy Ethical Casual Clothing? Now that we know what modern slavery is, how ethical fashion fights it, and the fair trade difference, and we’re excited to make small changes to make a big difference, we’re discussing practical questions: Where can I buy a fair trade tee? Where can I buy ethical jeans? Dresses? Scarves? And how much is this going to cost me?
Today I’m going to share links for dressy, special occasion clothing and accessories. Note that you don’t always have to spend a fortune to look good while doing good, although some classic, high quality items are what I consider “investment pieces.”
Special Occasion Dresses
Raven and Lily: These delicate earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are handmade from melted down bullets from past wars by HIV-positive women in Ethiopia. In addition to providing sustainable economic opportunities, Raven + Lily returns proceeds to fund healthcare and literacy programs for women and children in this community. And during the month of October, use code “scribbles” to get 20% off!
Noonday Collection: I’ve already introduced you to Noonday here and one of their representatives here, but to recap, Noonday is a fair trade company that also gives toward families’ adoption costs. Their jewelry is truly stunning and affordable.
Thank you for all the positive feedback on my last post! I truly appreciate your comments, texts, and emails, and I’m so glad that these posts have been helpful and inspiring to you.
I can’t believe that our series finale is almost here! It starts next weekend with a charity auction of mine and some of my friends’ clothes. On Friday I’ll share links to the auction on ebay, as well as information about the charities the proceeds will go to, and some helpful tips for bidding on ebay. I’m super excited!
After the charity auction comes THE giveaway! Shabby Apple, Live FashionABLE, Stop Traffick Fashion, and Noonday Collections are all giving away fabulous prizes! I can’t wait!
Tomorrow I’ll share more links to places you can buy “everything else,” ethical accessories, underwear, children’s clothes, and shoes. For more inspiration, follow my Ethical Fashion board on Pinterest!
