Oprah’s Project O Bracelet

Oprah does it again! It’s clear that Oprah’s giving spirit knows no bounds. This week we came across Project O Bracelet and just knew that The Vyne Readers would be interested in helping out. Project O Bracelet is an initiative led by O Magazine in partnership with Fair Winds Trading. Think of them as bracelets with a back story. The bracelets are made by women in East Africa who have suffered through some of life’s most horrific challenges. Making these bracelets gives the women the opportunity to earn 12 times the average daily wage in their countries. The project launched in 2007 and has given the women of Africa the opportunity to transform their lives for themselves and their families. The latest editions of the O Bracelet is particularly unique as it brings together the handy work of women from Rwanda and women still suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana. Each bracelet is handcrafted in Rwanda and New Orleans. They are designed with two distinct parts, a beautifully woven disk and an equally beautiful band, to represent the two groups of women coming together. Take a look at these fabulous treasures and consider supporting the cause by purchasing the braceletes.

Are you a corporate woman looking to jazz up your drab wardrobe? Or a job seeker looking to punctuate your interview with a winning look? One thing is for sure, a savvy, well-made suit is a must have. We came across this fantastic multi-textured black suit by Zero + Maria Cornejo in the April 2009 issue of O magazine. We love the feminine silhouette and flattering neckline. Style it up with a great pair of earrings, a bangle or watch and of course a show stopping pair of shoes. Do you have a favorite suit or other power wardrobe pieces? If so, tell us about them. Post your comments and links to your favorite corporate wardrobe pieces here.
