Who Made Your Clothes?

Womans Clothing Made in Vancouver

Walking up to the front doors of Nicole Bridger in Gastown I read the decal in the window reading, “Who Made My Clothes?” It really is a simple question and it got me thinking, with how many clothes I own did I know where they were made and by what hands put them together.

“Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. Nicole Bridger Design was founded on the belief that fashion doesn’t have to sacrifice commitment to the environment.”

Last week I got to spend the evening inside the Nicole Bridger store learning about the designer, some of the philsophy behind the brand and was introduced to some new local jewelry and accessory brands that Nicole Bridger carries.

Catering their designs to the effortlessly chic, classy and environmentally conscious woman Nicole Bridger Design looks stunning on all body types. As Samantha of The Family Jewels stated in Three Body Types One Brand, “There are very few stores that offer something for everyone.” The group of us ladies that walked into the store were loving each piece that we had the opportunity to try on, with our different body types, each piece accented our bodies highlights and allowed for a comfortable chic fit.

“At Nicole Bridger Design, we love style as much as the environment. Each of our collections are tailored from the highest quality ethical materials and are designed to flatter the natural curves of a woman’s individuality and femininity. Every piece is modern, refined and makes an impression – just like you.”

It truly is all about the details for Nicole Bridger that makes her line stand out from the rest, her commitment to the environment resonates in the smallest details. “In order to avoid plastics, we use buttons made of tagua nuts, shells or reclaimed from other sources. Our labels are made from cotton, rather than polyester which is a manufactured material typically made from petroleum and other chemicals. We also use 100% post-consumer recycled paper for our hangtags.”

It is the smallest things that when brought attention to make the biggest difference. Like think about the “Who Made Your Clothes?” sign I spotted in the window, Nicole Bridger isn’t just making people who enter their store think about the effect of clothing on the environment but even those walking through the streets of Gastown. As they walk past and read the decal, they too will be thinking about the simple question, “Who Made My Clothes?”

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.

This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.
•
For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
•⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀
