This past week, in honor of NWA Fashion week, I had the opportunity to do a series of style posts for the Mustache Goods & Wears incorporating one of my favorite do good brands, 31 Bits.
I love that something self focused can be used to look outward and impact the world around us. 31 Bits does an incredible job at matching great aesthetic and design with a powerful cause. Everything they do is 100%, matching their passion for empowering women.
I had so much fun with this project, and its getting me anxious to have spring here already! You can read more about 31 Bits on our brand spotlight, and you can see the full style posts of the pictures above on the Mustache Goods & Wears blog.
In my job at The Mustache, a local boutique here in Fayetteville, I have gotten the opportunity to flourish. Recently, I took on the role of blogging for the store. This includes product spotlights, employee interviews, style posts, etc. Needless to say, I love it. Especially the style post part. I feel like I’m finally stepping closer to figuring out what I love and what I’m semi-good at.
With NWA fashion week starting, I decided to do a style post a day incorporating clothes from the store + my favorite do-good brand 31 Bits. I started the week off with a brand spotlight on who they are and what they do. You can read about it here. I love style and fashion, but even more so, I love fashion with a cause. It adds so much more depth and meaning to something that could be so easily self absorbed.
I wanted to share some photos I took last week, and will continue to update my personal blog as I update the store blog.

Last semester I had the opportunity to take a b&w film photography class for my major (Visual Design). I have a secondary focus in photography, so being able to learn the process of hands on developing was such a cool experience. We developed all of our photographs by hand, which was both time consuming and (most of the time) rewarding. I came out of that class learning so much. It is definitely my favorite course that I have taken here at the U of A so far. I finally got around to scanning my favorite prints in, so over time I will be sharing some of them. Hope you enjoy!
These were taken in Waco, TX during our time at the World Mandate Confrence through Antioch Church.
All photos were taken using a Canon AV-1
It’s a henna party, people! Sunday after church we lit some inscense and whipped out the henna. We had so much fun doodling on eachother and got to enjoy it many days after in memory of our weekend together. It was a relaxing, therapudic way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
