Delight of the Day 4/4

Today’s Delight of the Day is the Lexington Dress from Lilly Pulitzer, $198. I love how reminiscent of the vintage patterns it is, but with a more modern cut that would be flattering on anyone. If you’d like to see some of my other favorite from Lilly, feel free to check them out here!

Just a friendly reminder to enter my Kidogo Kidogo giveaway! It runs until Sunday, and you could win your very own iPhone case. Who doesn’t love changing up her cases?

Delight of the Day 4/1

I have an announcement today. After today, I will no longer be blogging.

APRIL FOOLS!

I’m so clever, right? Ha!

Anyway, down to business: today’s Delight of the Day is the ever adorable Envelope Clutch in Printed Anchor from J.Crew Factory, $69.50. (Plus, take 30% off with code {JUSTJOKES}!) I’m seriously loving everything from J.Crew’s spring line (you can see some of my other favorites here), but this clutch is priority number one. I’m envisioning carrying it around all summer long, paired with white jeans and a great navy blazer. Perfection, right?

p.s. Don’t forget to enter my Kidogo Kidogo giveaway! The Rafflecopter seems to be working today, so it will be easy peasy!

Kidogo Kidogo Giveaway

 

Up and Away

I’m beyond excited to introduce you to Kidogo Kidogo, whose name means “little by little” in Swahili. This awesome company, started by two sisters, sells iPhone cases, and, for each one they sell, they donate a cell phone to women in Tanzania. (Think Toms shoes, but even more incredible.)

 Flamingo! In their own words, “In Tanzania, only 36% of women own mobile phones, and the number one reason preventing them from ownership is the initial cost of a mobile handset. Mobile phones in Tanzania are prepaid where owners can buy credits at bodegas and other small stores around the county. These phones are also much more to these women then just a way to communicate with family and friends, although they do enjoy this as well.  A mobile phone is a flashlight, a watch, a calculator, a camera and a radio. In Tanzania mobile banking is extremely common, and a phone provides women a way to make secure banking transactions. Mobile phones are also used monitor consumer markets and receive health reminders and updates. Women with mobile phones also report a much higher feeling of personal safety than those without.”

 Little by Little

“At Kidogo Kidogo, we sell iphone cases. But these cases do a lot more than just look good and protect your phone — they are putting life changing mobile technology into the hands of women across Tanzania. You see, when you buy a case, we buy a phone (or phone credits) to give to a woman who could not otherwise afford it. The phones are then distributed to women through established non-profit partners already working in Tanzania. We currently have partnered with FINCA, a global charitable microfinance organization, whose mission is to provide financial services to the world’s lowest-income entrepreneurs so they can create jobs, build assets, and improve their standard of living. We have also partnered with an environmental NGO in Tanzania, Sea Sense. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the sea turtle case will be distributed to Sea Sense who works closely with coastal communities in Tanzania to conserve and protect endangered marine species.”

Go Fish

Each case is priced at $30 each, and they were designed by an esteemed Tanzanian-based artist, Sarah Markes, and feature some of Tanzania’s most iconic wildlife.  There are five iPhone 5/5s case designs and two iPhone 4/4s case designs!
