It may only be October but registration for Dressember is open and the 2019 Dress collection has been available for almost a month now. 2019 is my 6th year participating in Dressember and I couldn’t be more excited! I haven’t decided how to do Dressember this year.
For the last few weeks, I’ve been working my way through Siler’s non-fiction 300 page book documenting the story of slavery in San Francisco’s Chinatown and the women who fought it.
Dressember in July has been a fun way to talk about how I wear dresses all December long. It’s also been a lot of fun to wear dresses (and skirts) all month with sandals and cute shoes!
July 1-10, I was fundraising for 10freedays, for a non-profit named Our Daughters International in Nepal that focuses on the rescue, and restoration of girls (and boys) from human trafficking on the Nepal-India border.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been reading A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah a powerful memoir of a boy soldier from Sierra Leone in the 1990’s. Not that long ago, and insanely this kind of human trafficking is still happening. Children brainwashed into fighting wars that tore up their own families.
