Beads, and step on it, darling!

This just in from my uber elegant Upper-West-Side-dwelling friend Kari…

Make a $40 donation to the Association François-Xavier Bagnoud (FXB) in honor of a friend or family member to help children and families in need, and FXB will send them a card and a handmade, gift-wrapped beaded necklace made by a woman enrolled in FXB’s programs in Uganda. But, step on it, because they are taking their last orders at the stroke of midnight tonight!

These necklaces aren’t exactly like Holly Golightly’s most famous baubles…

…but, I think she would have swooned (I mean, mooned!) over them in her quiet moments alone…

…and I know the modern-day Audrey Hepburn would throw on a couple strands with a simple white shirt, and her classic skinny pants.

(looks like J.Crew would approve too!)

(not to mention, a genuine FXB volunteer!)
