a southern style: Mae-jor Age

Top: Forever 21 / Jeans: Forever 21 / Shoes: Steve Madden (sold out) / Bracelet: c/o Mae Movement / Bracelet: David Yurman


Sleeveless in January? That's Wilmington for you. (and while I'm not in love with these photos, I do love the look). I found the top at Forever 21 -- a find that I think lucky considering it looks much more expensive that the prices you find at Forever. I loved the detail at the top as well as the peplum, and any kind of detail like that reminds me of a Gatsby era. 

I'm in love with my Gatsby-inspired Mae Movement bracelet, and I was so excited to collaborate with them. Mae Movement recently released it's "Mae-jor Age" collection, and you can find the "Swing" bracelet I'm wearing in the Beautiful Little Fool (think Daisy) section. Mae Movement isn't just a style movement, though. These Nepalese bracelets are hand crocheted by women in Nepal, and the purchases of these bracelets can provide a sustainable way of living for the women in that country. So many young women are sold into human trafficking, but if they can work and earn fair wages, they have a much better chance at a good life.

You can support these women and have beautiful bracelets by purchasing from Mae Movement. They are perfect stackable bracelets, so be sure to visit Mae Movement and purchase your own! I know I will be!

  2. I saw this top on the website but haven't been able to go to the store to check it out yet. I think the bracelets have a wonderful cause behind them and I hope it becomes a powerful movement. I'm thinking about getting one. In fact, I found one I really like. :) However, the website is very difficult to navigate. It's a little hard to read and things aren't showing up properly.
