Mid Fall: Styling Fashion For Good

Bandero Statement Necklace | 31 Bits
31 Bits empowers women in Uganda to rise above poverty through above sustainable living wage employment and education. The beads on their jewelry are all made from recycled magazine material!
Grey Side Slit Maxi Dress (long sleeve version here) | Threads for Thought via Seed People's Market
Threads for Thought is high quality sustainable eco fashion company with a commitment to safe and fair labor manufacturing. Seed People's Market is a collective in Costa Mesa, California which sells all social good products (I personally consider it to be my glittery fairyland).
Black Cardigan | H&M Conscious Collection
H&M's Conscious Collection came about as a reaction to the results of the Bangladesh Factory Fire and there after, their integral participation in creating the Bangladesh Accord. Although... their line does not seem to be growing in stores or selling off as well as I would liked it have to. 
Silver Bird Bangle | Relevee Jewelry benefiting Made By Survivors
This is one of my favorite jewelry companies (tied for first). All of their jewelry is created in India and sourced locally in India. Their pieces are all made by survivors of human trafficking as a way to not only help break the cycle of sex trafficking of women in India, but to break gender stereotypes by training women as goldsmiths!

- Sanctuary lyrics by Vineyard


The past week, plus some, has kept me one busy bee! At my internship with International Princess Project I have been shooting lifestyle photoshoots every other day with local bloggers. The blogger collaborations are a lot of work, but so much fun!  For these photoshoots, I actually contacted other social good fashion companies in the area and ended up collaborating with them. Woop Woop! Although, it wouldn't have been so successful without the email structuring advice from my PR queen-of-a-mentor! I am so blessed to have a mentor that believes in me and is willing to help me become my very best. :) Every day I realize how blessed I have been to have people around me that are willing to push me to my very best. As my trips to Ecuador and Peru approach, I feel like I am looking in to my life and wondering, "who is that lucky chick and how did she get there?" All I can say is that I have seen how God gives and takes away.


Feeling Beyond Blessed,
Christine


What do you feel blessed about in your life???
