The start of December means the start of the holiday season (yay!) and it also means the start of something really close to my heart – Dressember.
What is Dressember?
Dressember is a movement that uses fashion to advocate for women who’ve been exploited. It challenges participants to wear a dress for ALL 31 DAYS IN DECEMBER, and in so doing raise funds and spread awareness about human trafficking / modern day slavery.
Where do the funds raised by Dressember go?
Dressember partners with a few different organizations to directly impact the fight to rescue, protect, and restore the lives of trafficking victims and survivors worldwide. Their key partner is the International Justice Mission, but others include Anti-Slavery International & Love146. The full list of partners is on their website.

You can also donate. If you’re interested, here is my donation page, but I encourage you to donate to anyone!
Support Dressember: Shop
You can also help just by shopping! Dressember has a marketplace! There are quite a few dress designs, and they are made ethically made by women in Nepal. The dress I am wearing in all these photos is the Terry Dress. I love the cozy, comfy fit of this dress and (of course) that it has pockets. It’s a great dress for layering under a faux fur vest or a blazer to keep warm!
If you have any questions I’d be more than happy to answer them to the best of my ability! Also; let me know if you decide to join me in doing this! I’d love to be in touch with anyone else who is participating so I can cheer you on, etc!
