Style Update: A bag that could potentially save a life

posted on: Monday, 4 May 2015

Today's Style Update has a special message behind it...The bag you see pictured here is not just a handbag, it's a bag that will help see a safe birth for a mother and child in need. Sound unexpected? Here's all you need to know-

Over the years I have made no secret of my unwavering adoration of the TOMS brand. The company, run out of California, has not only managed to supply incredible products in fashion over the years, they have also managed to do so while giving back to communities in need with a one-for-one platform.  If you buy a pair of shoes, they give a pair of shoes to an impoverished child. If you buy a pair of sunglasses (as I'm wearing above), an individual in a developing country receives the gift of restored eyesight. Since 2006, TOMS has given away over 35 million pairs of shoes and helped restore sight for over 300,000 people. This year, the company set a new goal - to help woman around the world in giving birth. Did you know that over 40 million women each year give birth without the help of a skilled birth assistant? TOMS is looking to change that. With every handbag purchase, TOMS will help provide a safe birth for a mother and baby in need. If ever there were a feel good factor in carrying a handbag, I think we just found it. Your purchase is potentially saving a life. Find that same satisfaction with another brand, lovelies! 

So today, I'm proud to feature this new TOMS black woven bucket bag and would like to encourage you to take a look online with TOMS to check out this whole new offering that is not only impressive when it comes to style, it's impressive for what it does for the world.

For those of you interested in the full outfit, here are all the details:
