I love a gorgeous silk blouse as much as the next gal, but let's be real: I spend my days convincing a tiny tyrant to eat one more bite of his pb&j, while scraping unknown substances off my yoga pants. When I'm not doing that, I'm sweating & selling at my local Farmer's Market, or in the studio, speed-typing and madly making as many pieces of jewelry for y'all before naptime's over! Simply stated: I'm a t-shirt kind of girl.
But I'm still a woman, for goodness' sake! I want to feel lovely and put together, while still being comfortable. And it can be hard to find ethical pieces that are affordable, since the definition of ethically made clothing includes fair pay and high quality. Well, we've found an ethical fashion brand that balances comfort, washability, quality, and ethical practices in the most beautiful tees you've ever worn. Meet Elegantees.
Elegantees are designed by Katie Martinez and her team, and are made by survivors of sex trafficking in Nepal. The sex industry is one of the largest in the world. Women of all ages, including little girls as young as 8 years old, are broken by this system of poverty and slavery. Elegantees is doing its part to serve our world in need by employing women who've been rescued from this system and empowering them to rise out of poverty and contribute to society through their jobs as seamstresses. Check out their website and learn more about their beautiful mission.
Last month, we teamed up with out friends at Elegantees for a photo shoot to create beautiful ethical fashion looks + serve our global community in need. We love adding to our work in Ghana with Feeding the Orphans, to support this brand that's also working hard to serve and empower women.
And now, we're teaming up for two months of giveaways from Elegantees and New Eve Jewelry! This weekend (5/19-5/22) we'll be giving away our Many Waters agate slice necklace, and next month Elegantees will give away a gift certificate to their online shop! We're so glad to be able to bless you with gifts from two brands that are living out God's call to serve those in need and, in turn, serve Jesus himself.
