Darlings in Dresses: Support Dressember

Linnea White

The heart of Dressember is dignity for all women. The heart of Dressember is freedom - that every woman has the right to live a vibrant and autonomous life.

Dressember is a collaborative movement utilizing fashion and creativity to advocate for the freedom and restoration of women. It began as a style challenge, and in just four years, it became a fundraising campaign opposing the worldwide trafficking and exploitation of women. It's bigger than just a dress. It's about reclaiming femininity, dignity, and true beauty.

Darlings in Dresses: Why We're Doing It

Megan and I are so excited for this cause, this campaign, and a whole month of wearing dresses! God has given us hearts for women, and it's evident in the mission of this blog and the mission of our boutique.

Jesus came to restore ALL things. Jesus came to make ALL things new. Jesus restored us. God transformed our perspectives on clothing, body image, and true beauty over the past years. He transformed the way we dress, teaching us to embrace modesty, style, and femininity in a new way. He taught us the power of women connecting around style, dignity, and our identity in Christ.

We're participating in Dressember because we believe in the collective voice of justice it declares. We believe God is working in and through us to share His redeeming and restoring love to women through fashion. And yes, we also happen to love wearing dresses.

Let's dress for the restoration of dignity for all women. Because it's a light of Christ's love in a dark world.

Join us! How? It's simple.

  1. Wear a dress! Share a pic of your own Dressember style on Instagram with #darlingsindresses.

The 31 Days of Dresses Rules

Can it only be a dress? Yes. Do you need to wear a dress at all times (aka to the gym or work)? If your daily activities require you do not wear a dress, then, no, you do not need to wear a dress. But whenever you get to choose what you wear, pick up that dress!

Have FUN. Get creative. Feel beautifully feminine. Twirl. Dance. Wear red lipstick. Get on your social media and join our movement with #darlingsindresses. Donate to our team page, and give back this holiday season in a new way.

Follow Linnea and Megan on Instagram to see how they rock their own Dressember style!

"Sseko Ribbon Sandals are produced in Uganda and help enable young women to attend university. Sseko hires academically gifted young women during the nine month gap between secondary school and university to earn money that will go directly towards their education. At the end of their nine month term, Sseko will match 100% of their savings with a college scholarship."

Buying and wearing the Sseko Ribbon Sandals directly impacts the life of a woman in Uganda, opening doors of opportunity to work, to succeed, to earn and save, to end the cycle of poverty.

"Sseko is not a charity," says founder Liz Forkin Bohannon in a letter. "What we’re trying to do is create partnership, possibility and opportunity where it didn’t exist before. And we do this by making beautiful things together. We work (hard) and we laugh and we love and we learn. And every nine months, we let go and we send these incredible women off to pursue dreams of their own."

What better way to walk through life than with confidence in your purchase, in your product, and in your fashion?

We love what Sseko stands for, the women they empower, and their awesome products. It is our hope to bring in more Sseko products in the coming weeks and months, as we see our vision for the store come to life. We hope to support women on the local and global level through collaborations with local artisans, consignment (not going anywhere!), and global artisans and mission-based brands, like Sseko Designs.

Stop by the shop to pick up your own Sseko Ribbon Sandals, and empower women like Ester to achieve their dreams and overcome poverty! Learn ways to tie these fun sandals over on the Sseko site.

On Saturday, April 4, we premiered our new collaboration with Prosperity Candle by displaying a dozen of their popular scents. At the end of the day, we had four candles left.

The impact you makeNavigationTile_impact2 when purchasing a Prosperity Candle is great:

Every candle purchased helps provide a living wage for the women of Prosperity Candle, who have recently resettled from refugee camps and are working to build a brighter future for themselves and their families in the United States.

The candle tins are colorfully decorated with inspirational quotes by women from around the world as well as the name of the woman who made that specific candle. The candles are handpoured soy blend candles in a travel size tin. We burned a sample candle in the store all day Saturday and were amazed by the radiant fragrance of the candle.

Stop by the shop to pick up your own Prosperity Candle and learn about the woman who made it!

Introducing Prosperity Candles into the shop and seeing them fly off the shelf was a huge affirmation of our vision for the store:

  1. To support women on the local and global level through collaborations with local artisans and global mission-based brands (such as Prosperity Candle).
  2. To feature home decor at Darling, in addition to our women's clothing and accessories, new and consigned.

We can't wait to introduce more brands like Prosperity Candle into Darling and share them with our customers.
