Fashion with Compassion: Raven + Lily Zia Earrings

by Allie Marie Smith

Happy Monday Girls!

I'm so excited to introduce to you a new series I'll be doing called Fashion with Compassion, where I'll feature some of my favorite fashion items that support a good cause! While I have to be honest and say that I think one of the last things I think girls and women need is a another fashion blog, I hope this fun new series will inspire us to think differently about the clothes, jewelry and accessories we buy. My hope is to introduce you to some lust-worthy pieces that not only look great on, but more importantly change lives, communities and the world.

Today, I am wearing my Zia: Gold Leather Leaf Earrings by Raven + Lily. I feel like a modern day Cleopatra! They are definitely statement earrings, which I adore, and what what I love more is that they are handcrafted by marginalized Muslim women in Northern India using locally sourced leather (meet the inspiring designers here).

The profits they bring in fund literacy programs for the women artisans and their children in the community! Get your very own pair right here, or click on the image below to be taken to their home on the Raven + Lily site.

What do you think of the new series? Any suggestions for future fashion items to cover?

  3. Leaf earrings have a great design and i totally agree with you about the new/fresh vision on jewelry, clothes we wear. We all have to pay more attention on being original and to try to come up with something new every time we have the chance. Wish you good luck!

  5. Wholesale fashion to be found in wholesale are purchased on the suppliers and manufacturers in mass which end in lower price tags many people stand. They are obtainable at price reduction doesn't mean likely less in terms connected with superiority. All these things build wholesale isabel marant trainers accepted among those that have dissimilar budgets and from dissimilar age brackets.

  6. Very nice, love simplicity, the shiny is great. Wonderful jewelry idea. Seems like they'd be fairly inexpensive to make, think two teenage grand daughters would love these. Next time I'm in craft store I'll be looking out for the supplies. Great post
    . Glad you had a good break, you deserve it. Sometimes other things like your family, friends deserve to come first before your blog.
