Back on the Block

What a relief. My laptop is fixed!
So, back to non-work looks. I have plans to wear today’s featured look to an upcoming reggae concert in the Lou. The outfit is anchored by a fuchsia Max Studio halter dress that is packed with eye-catching details like the wrap front and cut out back. The dress is worn with orange t-strap wedges.
Talking about relief, my relief bead bracelets add the perfect finishing touch. For just $8, I not only got the perfect accessory to complete many “global inspired” looks, but according to Relief International, a humanitarian non-profit agency, relief bead purchases support the people of Darfur in the following ways:

  • 1 Relief Bead feeds a malnourished child for 1 week
  • 5 Relief Beads bring a malnourished child back to good health
  • 10 Relief Beads restore the well-being of 2 malnourished children
  • 100 Relief Beads save the lives of 20 children
