Her Name Was Lola

Well, I have a secret surprise project to share! I have been making dress designs for quite awhile hoping to make a little collection of sorts. Well, with traveling so much this spring that has kind of been difficult. Later in the summer I'm going to release a few more designs, but I decided not to wait any longer and to just release one of the handmade pieces now in the shop.

I have also decided to give 20% of its sales to Love146 's U.S. prevention programs, they are working to end child sex slavery and exploitation. Which surprisingly enough, doesn't just happen overseas... it happens in our own backyards. I thought a pretty dress seemed a fitting thing for the cause, every time you wear this dress it can be a reminder to speak out and fight for all of those girls who need us to, and who don't have the luxury of getting dresses to wear.

So...here it is! Meet the Lola Dress in white.

  4. It's lovely! And that's a really great cause. I'm glad you're doing that. :) I was pretty shocked when I first found out that sex trafficking happens pretty much everywhere--including my own city. It's incredibly sad and disturbing. So it's really great you're donating part of your proceeds to this cause.
