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?”

  • My blog started when Sophie was just six months old. She's been a part of it since the beginning, sharing the photoshoots, adventures and little rewards that have come along the way. I feel like this whole journey has provided so many surprises both big and small. Once of the best things is being able to give the kids bigger experiences we may not have been able to do otherwise as well as being reminded (thanks @kindercanada) to celebrate the little things with little surprises. This certain surprise turned into a big one when Sophie opened up her chocolate and found a mermaid toy inside (she just asked Santa for a mermaid for Christmas ... a real one... ha!) #ad #littlesurprisescount

Said goodbye to the decade that was a whole lot of discovering who I am and the things that make my soul happy. I travelled around, got married and became a mother to three beautiful children. Excited about this new decade and what’s to come. I kinda feel like life’s just beginning.
  • We had such a great time hosting both the media preview night and @shopandtalkmarket the past two days. We were filled with so much love and encouragement from so many of you. Thank you all for coming to shop, saying hi, donating your time, being a vendor... whichever it may be, you made an impact to create such a successful event. A special thank you to @grimmsfoods who not only donated food for the media preview but also made a special donation to the @abbotsfordfoodbank directly. Thanks to them and all of you we are able to support more families in need this season.

  • Every party I style I have this vision in my head and each time I have no idea if it's going to turn out, what looks like one day of styling is really a whole bunch of days (and lots of late nights) of planning. I've learnt a few things from when I first started styling parties and wanted to share my top tips for party planning.
NUMBER 1 - Don't do it alone. This specific party I had lots of help from @goldngrasses and @juliechristinephotography. Ask for help, styling tips, and have fun doing it with someone.
NUMBER 2 - Less is more. Focus on a few key food items and make them the focus. We used a whole lot of meat and cheese here and yummmmmy, it was good!
NUMBER 3 - The dollar store has everything a craft store has and more! Parties and pretty decor doesn't have to be expensive, mine as well save some $ where you can! •
If you are on the save money train and interested in checking out more ways to save (or perhaps even win something for free!!) head over to my friends at @irisvisualgroup and check out their 21 days of Christmas. They've got lots of tips, tricks and giveaways just for you. #sponsored #IRISvisualgroup

  • We got our new sled in the mail and Evelyn has been so into it! I decided we needed to go for a drive and find some snow and give it a try. It's safe to say she loved riding in our @rudolphesled and I can see many more joyful snow rides in the future.
•
Rudolphe just launched their sled line and it's perfect for little ones that could use a lift in the snow. There's a buckle to keep them securely seated and you can get a name personalized on the back, we had our last name engraved. Perfect for all your snowy adventures. #CWJWpartner #rudolphesled #rudolphe3000
