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.
Learning to live with self-compassion was my first step in recovery. You deserve to figure out how to love yourself <3
