LBD for Dress for Change

 
Hey everyone! A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about my friend's new program, Dress for Change. This is a project that benefits children in Africa with nothing to wear. For each person who pays $5 and pledges to wear a little black dress all week April 1st-April 7th, a dress will be sewn and given to a needy girl in Africa. For more details on the project, check out my post about it here!
 
I wanted to remind you that you only have one more day before the project starts, so make your pledge NOW at  http://lbddressforchange.blogspot.com/!
 
As I said before, I will be participating in Dress for Change week, and I will be blogging my accessorized LBD (little black dress) each day!
Today, I am giving a little preview and showing you the dress I will be sporting for the week.
 
Here it is!
Dress from American Eagle
It is a super simple dress, but the plainness is actually perfect for Dress for Change--it means that there are LOTS of potential ways to style the dress, which is key to wearing it multiple days in a row.
 
If you decide to do this project, comment below! Also, don't hesitate to blog your outfits each day! I can't wait to show you mine :)

29. Patty

 
 
 
 
Since today is St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd wear some green to show my spirit (and avoid getting pinched!). Of course, my top is a bit more bluish than normal Patty's Day green, but I'm just going to call it "seafoam green" and move on.  :)
I love the scallops on this tank, and I can't wait to wear it with shorts when it is warmer out. Unfortunately, today the weather was very dismal, so I'm hoping that the luck of the Irish brings the sun out soon! Have a great St. Patrick's Day everyone!

Dress for Change

Hey, everyone!
 I am writing this post about an awesome project called Dress for Change. For only $5 and a simple pledge, you can be providing clothing for a little girl in Africa.
Want to know more? Keep reading!
 
The mastermind behind this project is my friend, Sheyanne Root, a senior at Burns High School.
So, what is Dress for Change?
Basically, it is a pledge to wear a little black dress every day for one week (April 1st-April 7th).
You pay $5 to participate. For every person that joins this project, Sheyanne is pledging to sew a dress for an unprivileged girl in Africa. She is going to donate the dresses she makes to a charity called Dresses for Africa, which has already supplied over 1.5 million dresses to girls in Africa.
Sounds good, right?
 
Here's how to join:
1. Email your name to lbddressforchange@gmail.com.
2. Visit http://lbddressforchange.blogspot.com/ and give $5 through Paypal OR
request Sheyanne's address via email to send $5 in the mail.
3. Find a stylish little black dress and prepare to wear it from April 1st-April 7th.
You can accessorize it as much as you desire to make it look different each day!
4. Tell your friends, your sisters, your mother, and everybody else! Share this post on Facebook.  Tweet and Instagram about the project using the hashtag #dressforchange. And of course, spread the pledge through word of mouth!
For only $5, you can give a little girl in Africa something to wear. (Plus, knowing Sheyanne, it will be a very cute dress!)

This is not a sponsored post. I personally know Sheyanne, and this project is a great way to show kindness and charity by only spending $5. I signed up myself, and I will be blogging my 7 ways to wear a little black dress! SIGN UP! And of course, let me know in the comments if you are getting involved. Everyone is welcome to blog about this project!
