Conscious commerce is a state of mind. It is shopping with purpose, for items that bring joy to your life and help you express your inner light. It is in support of small businesses, of creators, men and women who are dedicated to their craft. To use your dollar with passion, thought, awareness and intention. It is bringing an end to mindless purchasing and creating a wardrobe + home that supports the life you dream of.
This week’s Conscious Commerce feature is one of my absolute favorite brands, Elizabeth Suzann. Inspired by a dislike for excess and a desire for quality, Elizabeth and her team cut and sew all pieces in the Nashville-based studio using high-quality, natural fiber cloth that continues to get better with wear. Her passion for craftsmanship, functionality, detail and mindful consumption is felt in every collection. Each garment stunning in its simplicity and versatility.
Elizabeth is helping to lead the way to a higher consciousness surrounding fashion, and a reminder that true personal style is discovered in clothing made with integrity vs. fast, disposable fashion. She creates thoughtful, well-designed pieces in classic silhouettes that will remain a wardrobe staple for years to come. Season after season it just keeps getting better, and I eagerly await what Elizabeth will do next as I save to incorporate as many of her creations into my closet as possible.
