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.

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.
Taking care of ourselves.

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

F*cking Diet Culture

F*cking Diet Culture

The frustration that we have felt in buying eco-friendly, sustainable pieces in curvy sizes does not compare to the frustration people in curvy bodies feel when clothes shopping.


I have been doing a lot of research trying to find sustainable size inclusive brands. There are so few. Why is it that sustainable, environmentally friendly pieces are not made in extended sizing?


Diet culture.

 

F*cking diet culture.

I am a Feminist

I am a Feminist

I  am a feminist and I am a mother. I believe in equity for people of all genders and raising my sons to value kindness and respect for all people. I believe in a woman’s right to choose how they want to live their life without the influence of the patriarchy. The patriarchy is where men hold the power and are the main decision makers and women’s voices are mostly silenced. We live in a patriarchal society. It is slowly getting more equal, but there are still SO many expectations put on people identifying as women.
