DRESS FOR DRESSEMBER
- Mata Traders
- 29 Dec, 2013
For a girl like me who loves to wear nothing but dresses, I was thrilled to come across the amazing campaign, Dressember. Thousands of women wore a dress every single day this month to raise money for the International Justice Mission, an organization that rescues slaves all around the world.
And raise money they have! Dressember has raised over $100,000 – I’m so impressed! They still have a few more days to go, so if you want to help you can do so here.

Dressember sounds like so much fun! I just found out about it, so I missed the chance to participate this year – but, I’m totally getting ‘dressed’ next Dressember. Wearing a dress for 31 days? No problem!

You can find lots of Dressemberers on Instagram by searching #Dressember and on Twitter @Dressember4IJM. Some of my favorites are below. These women prove that #youcandoanythinginadress (that’s another Dressember hashtag).

If there are any Dressember participants out there in need of dresses, you’ve come to the right place. Wearing Mata’s fair trade dresses compounds your goodness impact. You are a goodness master! Here are my personal recs for a festive Dressember:
First Dance dress
Moonrise dress blue
Young Love dress red
One last thing, Dressemberers, I know Dressember isn’t all fun and games. There are some serious styling decisions to be made. You’ve got 31 days to fill, but not 31 dresses to wear each day, and you need to make a dress work for multiple days. Not to worry, we’re here to help and we happen to know some remix experts: fashion bloggers we’ve been chronicling in our Blogger Style series, highly recommended for dress styling inspiration!
