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.
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
Recovering from my eating disorder and self-injury was the hardest thing I have ever done.
I look back on my 15-year struggle with anorexia and bulimia and I barely recognize that person today. She was so frail, hopeless, overwhelmed, and desperate.
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.
Eating disorder recovery is not a straight line. It has been full of little slips and falls. The difference is now I get back up. Now I have people and a life well beyond what I ever imagined possible counting on me, relying on me every day.
By speaking out, you are owning your truth and taking back control. Secrecy breeds shame and I am ready to silence the shame.
The eyes tell you so much about a person. Do you see the pain that was the past? Do you see the strength and courage behind the eyes? To truly know joy, you must have known pain.
