We are NOT defined by a number 

We are NOT defined by a number 

As women, we are taught we are defined by our bodies. By the size of our pants. Go up in size= less worthy. That, my loves, is diet culture. Diet culture is the worshipping of thinness, equating living in a smaller body to moral superiority. Clothes shopping can be incredibly triggering to just about all of us in this diet obsessed society. There is always something “wrong” with our bodies. But is there? Really?

Sustainability in fashion goes beyond the materials an item is made from. While this is critical in protecting our planet, sustainability also refers to the ethical and fair treatment of every human that comes in contact with the item.

Healing Journey

I was stuck in a cycle of numbing my pain, doing anything possible to quiet the feelings even if for only a moment. Starving, purging, cutting...these were the only things that gave me relief from the screaming in my mind. I just wanted it to stop.

Know better, do better. Our business is in a shift. On so many levels. We are moving towards #slowfashion and working hard at being #sizeinclusive Our new goal is to carry all products in sizes XS-6X. Understanding it will be a while before we get there, but this is where we are moving. Sustainability is at our core. Fair treatment of every person that is part of our supply chain is top priority. Things have to change. It is past time.

Queens it is time we stop.

Stop tearing one another down. Stop looking at other women and comparing ourselves. Stop the jealousy. Stop the hate

Slow Fashion: Time to be Part of the Solution

Slow Fashion: Time to be Part of the Solution

The fashion industry is the third leading cause of pollution and waste in our world. Fast fashion is contributing in a massive way to global warming, our landfill situation, and ocean waste. From the wasteful plastic packaging to the lack of recycling on our garments to the unethical mass production of clothing at factories, we can no longer turn a blind eye to these issues.

Over this next year, you will see changes at Mary Rose. We will not be part of the problem any longer, we will be part of the solution.

Do it scared. Just do it.

Courage is a muscle and we build it by doing things that scare us. Do it scared. Just do it. It gets easier and you get stronger. One thing every day that scares you. One thing, that's it. You've got this <3 This was key in my eating disorder recovery.
