Playing Dress up With 31 bits / by Jenny Strebe










Hey friends! I had the most amazing opportunity to be involved with a fun collaboration at Frances Vintage with 31 bits. My sweet friend Alex over at Avestyles invited me to the styling party and I was absolutely thrilled to attend.

 The low down on 31 bits is that it is a company that was started in 2008 by five college girlfriends that traveled to Northern Uganda for a trip. While in Uganda they met some women making these adorable paper beaded jewelry. They realized that these women had a gorgeous product and desperately needed an income, at that time 31bits was born.

Since 2008 31bits has grown from 6 to over 170 beneficiaries in Uganda. 31 bits runs all sorts of amazing programs for the women in need and since launching have been featured in Harpers Bazaar, People Style Watch, Martha Stewart just to name a few.

I loved layering my 31bits and adding a bit of color to my everyday white and black attire. The Santa Fe necklace is my favorite as its a big statement necklace that is classy and has a tiny pop of color. This was such a fun collaboration and I'm obsessing over my new bits. You have to go check out there fall collection or if your local, head over to Frances Vintage in downtown Phoenix to get your hands on some too!

And go check out my other Phoenix peeps Summer with The Girls with Glasses, Lindsay LettersRachel Bagley, Jessica from SeeSaltLauren KelpStyle Tutor and Alexandra from Avestyles see how they styled their jewelry.
