Title 1...

Monday, January 23, 2017

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
