31 Bits was featured in this season’s FabFitFun Box with a gift certificate of $25 to use on their site. They are focused on the idea of: Fashion For Good. 31 Bits recognizes that the way we spend our money can directly impact he lives of people all over the world. It makes sense then, to spend our money places that build communities up rather then exploiting them. Every dollar we spend responsibly, is a dollar that can help give hardworking individuals and collectives. Our spending power can provide the income they need to provide resources to traditionally undeserved areas and segments of the population.
Plus, we get some pretty awesome stuff!!!
They contacted me to do a review to show ladies an example of the lovely jewelry that they could get with their gift card, or if you are just in the mood to update your wardrobe!
(Hello Mother’s Day Gift or even better Mother-in-Law gift… let her just say ONE thing about it and you can launch into the whole story and message… she can sulk in the kitchen and make you some treats)
All of the accessories sold by 31 Bits are handcrafted in Uganda. The beads are made from recycled paper that are sealed in varnish. It is non toxic don’t worry! In the care instructions they state to clean the beads with a wipe down and not to get them soaked.
There goes my plans of wearing all my accessories in the shower! 😉
The box! I liked the special little details a lot. It means that I can send this as a gift and not worry about it looking like I just bought something off of Amazon. (Mind you I love Amazon but their boxes aren’t special at all)
I like how giftable everything looks!
31 Bits – Necklace: Here it is! I could not find the exact one so I linked one that looks like it called Canopy. It really is an easy to wear piece that I love! I dig how the beads are cream and the gold beading accents. It makes this perfect to wear to work or even a work type party. It isn’t too loud but it does pop. I actually have a work meeting that will have a lot of events so this is going with me for sure!
The quality of the piece is great. The weight of the beads and construction is very good. I can see the care that was put into making this a piece I can wear for many years with pride. Plus it is so easy to match with different looks that I literally have no excuse not to work it!
I also am looking forward to wearing this to functions where I don’t have much to say except “where is the bar?” You know what I am talking about! Once I get a compliment I will be able to at least have an interesting tidbit about where my necklace was made and why I am wearing it. Plus, if I don’t like the person I can prattle on and on and on about it until they exit the conversation! Yes!
I am really excited to see what other ladies buy with their FabFitFun credits! If you do end up buying something send me a pic and I will put it up on the blog!!! My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org (ohhh sometimes people even get surprise gifts! Fancy!
