Clothing for a cause.





Outfit Details:
floral blazer - thrifted
handmade crochet dress - c/o Emma O (worn with a slip)
vintage bag - gift from my mom
lipstick - MAC Love Forever!

This crochet dress was given to me by Emma, who started a beautiful clothing line that is handmade in South Africa. The sales help families in South Africa and Zimbabwe. 
 
Taken from her blog
"I support over 20 unprivileged women and their whole families in Zimbabwe;
Creating job opportunities for adults and education for children in Africa... It's more than I EVER though would have been possible when starting this company in the first place."
 
 
Pretty cool, right? Check out the rest of her gorgeous pieces here (they have kids clothing, too).
