vilvum & a giveaway!

{Kirna Zabete tweed dress (another good one!), Zara moto jacket (mixed-media version), Vilvum Silk Scarf c/o, Zara booties, 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli} 

Looking good and feeling good always go hand-in-hand for me. I'm happiest when I'm in clothes that put a smile on my face and make me feel my best. This gorgeous silk scarf from Vilvum is no exception. In fact of all the quirky prints I've worn on this blog (like here or here)- these adorable little birds make up the cheekiest printed scarf I own!

Sure the scarf is great but the story behind it is even better. Vilvum, a US based company that sources rich silk from India to create their beautiful tunics, scarves, collars and totes- pledge a "Buy One & Share Love" stance for each purchase made from them. This means orphan children in India are provided a school uniform for each silk dress sold, children with special needs are granted school supplies and learning material for each scarf (like mine!) or collar sold, and for each purchase of a tote- medical supplies are covered. It's a lovely message, and really makes doing good while looking good so easy to do.

I've worn my scarf several times this week- since the weather has been very gloomy in San Francisco- and even with the off-beat print it works with everything! The kind, and kind-hearted folks over at Vilvum have graciously offered one Allergic to Vanilla Reader an item of their choosing. You can pick a dress, a scarf, a tote or even a collar.
