Fast Fashion

Fast Fashion

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.
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.
The Beginning of my Self-Love Journey

The Beginning of my Self-Love Journey

Overcoming my eating disorder, started with learning how to treat myself with compassion.
I hated myself. I blamed myself for the OCD, for the rape, and so much more. I could not find a way to treat my present self with compassion.
The Patriarchy and Diet Culture

The Patriarchy and Diet Culture

Diet culture is rooted in the patriarchy. Diet culture survives off of keeping women contained, small, quiet, and unheard.⁣

The Deeper Harm of Diet Culture

The Deeper Harm of Diet Culture

"Diet culture has engrained in us that, as women, we are defined by our bodies. We are taught from a very early age to be small, pretty, quiet, fragile. We are taught this is what it means to be feminine. A woman’s body is not an object. Our bodies are not something for other people to comment on."
