Sustainable Brand Stormie Dreams + GIVEAWAY!
As an believer in the value of secondhand fashion, I find it challenging at times when I have the need to seek a certain clothing item, like a plain white tee or a cocktail dress, for an impromptu occasion that requires a specific dress code. That said, it’s nice to have a handy sustainable brand to depend on when you need something snazzy, and you need it quick! Luckily I found an amazing brand that sells sustainably made clothing located right in Los Angeles!
Seeking cool, contemporary clothes, I was really happy to come across Stormie Dreams: an LA-based company that seeks to inspire change in the fashion industry. They have contemporary, comfortable, edgy clothes that are just as dope as any fast fashion competitor.
Upholding sustainable practices, Stormie Dreams makes their clothes in the USA and strives to improve and empower the lives of others along the way. Specifically, Stormie Dreams is partnered with the Penny Jar Project: a 100% non-profit organization that emphasizes the importance of family and community. The Project was founded by Scott Kingsbury to provide shelter, food, clean water, and a stable environment for orphans in Africa. Additionally through the project, Stormie Dreams donates an item of clothing to an orphanage for every item of clothing they sell.
Besides the comfiness and quality of the pieces, it’s so great to purchase new clothes from a local business that supports sustainable practices and incorporates philanthropy into their day-to-day work. It makes me happy that the rise of Stormie Dreams as a sustainable brand will reflect in the success of the Penny Jar Project. It feels great to support sustainable companies that have a drive to help the planet and people in need. If you need to buy something new, why not simultaneously help someone else and make a vote with you dollar? Stormie Dreams makes that option easy, and I admire that!
“In an Industry that often gets a bad rap, we make it our personal mission here at Stormie Dreams to create something bigger than just a business.”
For this week’s OOTD I am wearing a comfy white tee with a cotton ribbon descending from the neckline. I topped it off with a Stormie Dreams Duster that has cascading front lapels that drape along either side. For accessories I put on a pretty thrifted synthetic opal ring (my favorite stone!), and my trusty coach bag that I scored secondhand. I added a strap from an old purse that had seen better days to make my handbag into a satchel. Lastly I threw on a pretty crystal stone pendant by Eliza Designs LA. I love the look of this outfit! The Duster gives a polished trench coat look without being too thick or fussy. The material of the duster is thin, yet warm. It’s a really cute way to transform a jeans-and-tee type of day into a really unique, sophisticated look!
In celebration of Earth Day and the bright future of the sustainable fashion industry, I have partnered up with Stormie Dreams to host a giveaway tonight, 7pm PDT! Stormie Dreams is giving away a Duster from their website! To Enter:
