31 bits

smitten studio + 31Bits

31Bits-smittenstudio731Bits-smittenstudio3b31Bits-smittenstudio2b31Bits-smittenstudio631Bits-smittenstudio53I’ve shared a little about 31Bits in the past, but if you haven’t heard about the awesome things they are doing, you can take a peek at their mission here. In a nutshell, they work with women in Northern Uganda, purchasing jewelry from the artisans on a monthly basis creating a working relationship that empowers the women to rise above poverty. Really great right?

Well, they’ve recently doubled their do good power and have approached me about helping to get the word out about a new collaboration with “Not For Sale“, an organization that works to end human trafficking and modern-day slavery. I put this shoot together that features one of the pieces of jewelry that 31 Bits made exclusively for this new partnership, where over half of the profit will be donated to “Not For Sale”.

You can learn more about “Not For Sale” here, and shop the exclusive 31 Bits + NOT FOR SALE pieces, here and here.

my style: 31 bits with denim & lace

Well, I may have let out a little shriek when I received this one in the mail from 31 Bits… mission complete. It dresses up my distressed denim and brings color and a little more pattern (always a good thing ;)) to my white on white top & jacket.

If you haven’t heard about the great things 31 Bits is doing to support and empower women in Uganda head over to their site and read their mission.
