Welcome to my first blog post! Here are 3 things about me & what you can expect to see from me in the future.
1 - My name is pronounced Lee but is spelled Lea. The A is silent. About 98% of the people I meet always call me Lee-ah so if that’s what you were thinking too, no worries! Just think Lea like Tea ☕️
2 - I’m a huge proponent of sustainable fashion and living a more sustainable lifestyle. I try to keep learning and growing in living more consciously because I think it’s so important that we preserve our planet for generations to come! Being a fashion designer, I’ve worked at many different design houses and visited overseas factories and I have to tell you, the amount of waste I’ve seen is shocking!
I’m launching my sustainable dress line soon and I’m creating my line with sustainability as a main component. So I’ll be sure to share all the behind the scenes of my journey so you can experience it with me. 🥰 I’m also going to be sharing more of my favorite ethical shopping tips and style tricks as well as some of the ethical lifestyle changes I’ve made. Because it’s those little changes that can really add up!
3 - If you’ve been following me for a while, you know of my love of all things vintage, especially clothes from the 1940’s - 1960’s. When I discovered vintage clothes, I was amazed because they fit a larger bust so much better than the contemporary lines! Today the industry standard fit model is usually an A or a small B cup and that’s just supposed to fit every other cup size which is crazy. I’m designing my line with a larger bust size fit so if you are bigger than an A or B cup, the dresses will fit your gorgeous tatas!
