Everyone! Can you believe we’re fast approaching the Fourth of July already? It is hard to believe that June has flown by so fast. The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays, because I enjoy a laid back day with my family, eating yummy food and watching the I love going all out and being as patriotic as possible with my apparel, so I am already on the lookout for cute pieces to wear this year! How am I the only one experiencing this? The following are some more cute pieces you can pick up last-minute for the 4th!

This top makes me happy with its simple star detailing!

 

 

It’s the prettiest maxi dress for a Fourth of July gathering or if you’re planning a night on the town.

 

 

Graphic tees are my obsession, and I love this one because you can throw it on all summer long,

 

 

As a result of its flowy design, this romper will keep you cool during the summer heat. That’s such a cute idea as well! This is a win-win situation!

 

 

We would not be able to describe our feelings without using the word obsessed.

 

 

I’ve got the perfect party for all of you!

 

 

This season, I am in love with tops like this. You know what’s so cute about that front tie?

Both Cody and I worked multiple jobs and a lot of projects overlapped between us. Luckily, one of the things we have learned together is how to make the most of the time on hand On the work and planning front, we always have a weekly meeting to go over our goals, schedule, and plans for the upcoming week, whether it’s at our house or at a new place we’ve There still seems to be an issue with disconnecting from our other jobs at that time. 

 

Recently, Cody and I purchased a Movado Bold Motion, Engineered by HP smartwatch that lets us unplug for a short period of time without going completely off the grid. We can set our own priorities and alerts on the smartwatch so that we know when we are getting texts or calls from family, the babysitter, or work calls we are waiting for. It’s so cool to see it light up, I’m always excited to see it. I’ve found it so much easier to stay focused and utilize our planning time together when this is the case. A boyfriend watch has always been one of my favorite styles, and this one is both stylish and easy to wear from a busy day to a night on the town. In addition to staying connected, this smartwatch is definitely one of those fashion pieces that have a double duty by keeping an eye on important updates and allowing you to make the most of your 24-hour period.

In spite of the fact that I enjoy shopping for myself, I probably buy more things for my daughter than for myself. Isn’t it just so darn cute how little kids fashion is The following are a few different outfits that I chose for different occasions and are always my go-to outfits for B.

A pair of over-the-knee boots is an essential item for your fall and winter wardrobe. These Stuart Weitzman shoes are literally my favorite – I own them in a variety of 

I have outlined 3 easy ways you can wear your favorite over-the-knee boots this fall

When worn over denim Over-the-knee boots look great paired with denim, which is a safe bet for pulling off this look. Add a cozy oversized sweater to dress down flat boots for a perfect fall look, or add heeled booties for a more dramatic look.

For shorter hems, follow these steps There’s nothing better than a casual sweater dress or a skirt made out of suede during the Over-the-knee boots look and feel great even in the arctic cold and even provide some warmth – they are just wonderful with shorter hems, saving you from wearing tights or pretending your bare legs aren’t freezing.

Outerwear Of Your Choice Since fall is my favorite time of year to wear clothes, I’m reluctant to take them off when I can finally pull out my favorite layers. You can wear over-the-knee boots with everything from capes and ponchos to trenches and pea coats to make a statement and complete your fall look. Below you will find a few more of my favorite Stuart Weitzman boots. The way you wear them is really important. How do you like to style

It gives me great pleasure to share some of my favorite looks from one of my favorite shops! A feature that I really like about Intermix is the fact that they have a lot of my favorite designers like Self Portrait, IRO, Alexis, and so on, but the pieces they carry are mostly some of the unknown, unique items that aren’t easily found anywhere I think that this Self Portrait top is a perfect example of that! Aren’t you in love with this top? The moment I discovered it was one of those major moments! My fall wardrobe isn’t complete without a few beautiful items that can liven it up. I know you all know I especially love a good neutral piece. The following is a list of 4 ways to stay fresh and interesting with your looks this fall. Dress in layers – Jackets, scarves, and sweaters are a no-brainer but you shouldn’t stop Adding the metallic top under the lace created this unexpected peek-a-boo effect. The layering trend is also making rapid gains this season, whether it is a tee or a blouse, denim trousers or wide-leg trousers under your fall dresses.

Statement pieces – The only difference between a wardrobe of basic pieces and a wardrobe of basic pieces is the You will add interesting details to your look without being overwhelmed by it, so your fall staples can easily balance it out. I’ve always loved ruffles and lace, and I love them even more when they’re paired together, so I knew I had to have this top as soon as I saw Ruffled sleeves are such a pretty detail on this top, and you can wear it with a leather jacket and jeans to liven up the look. In addition, I got this dress from Intermix (they have the best statement pieces!). Every woman should have a statement dress in her closet! This is also one of my favorites.

Despite the fact that I have more neutral clothes than not in my closet, a pop of color is essential for every fall wardrobe! You can opt for monochromatic or stick to the varied shades of the same tones if you want a more sophisticated look. (This is also a great tip for transitioning from pastels to darker colors this fall. These two colors are a feminine and fun palette this season!) And, you can’t go wrong with the traditional colors of fall either. It’s just so amazing how this dress has an off-the-shoulder neckline and I love this flirty print mini dress!

A lace, leather, or velvet design might be used as a texture These are just a few of the things I love The rule of texture is more is always more. Making sure your look is textured is a sure-fire way to stand out. 

That was so good! I really like this ankle strap option as well. The next few images are a few of my favorites from Intermix – I love the way they display their goods. You can find so much inspiration in the looks they crafted!

My flight clothes are always up for grabs – you might see me in sneakers and joggers or heels. As long as I’m not running late for the airport (haha), it’s usually the later. A lot of times, if I have work meetings for the day or can’t make it to the hotel to change for the day, it’s the later. I’m very happy to be able to wear jackets and sweaters now that spring has finally sprung. Although the weather has dropped so much here in Utah it really feels like fall, even if it were 85° outside I would still wear them anyway! Thanks to the change of seasons, I’m wearing them again even though it’s 85° outside! A suede moto jacket was one of my favorite purchases of last year, so we had to include it in the From our latest collection, this is one of the best. This sweater is so beautiful and fits so perfectly! That is why it works with jeans and tees for travel styles, as well as a pretty sweater dress or shirt dress for date nights.

He looks so cute in his mini speedo! (it is difficult to tell in the picture, but it is like the last chunk of his baby plumpness. They have so many cute patterns here!) It’s so cute how his little speedo still shows off his cute little thighs! The swimsuit is actually a swim diaper, but I just wore it as a swimsuit instead.

This was the most swimming I’ve done outside of a swimming pool in maybe 5 years! There are no sharks in Greece, so I don’t know what else to do except to swim! that this is so pathetic. However, it was really fun to remember how it was to be a teenager when you did not think twice before you stepped into danger.

Water is their home. The kids could basically live in it! We hear There is always a fight about leaving – and the reasons are Five more minutes!” “Just 5 more minutes!” It’s just a matter of a few more!”

We visited Mykonos this summer as the third stop on our family trip. Before we got there, I didn’t know much about it. The pick was actually Cody’s – I picked Santorini and was sure there was nothing that could beat it, but I fell in love even more with Mykonos! It’s all about the beach for us, and even though Santorini beaches were all rocky, it was great to see Mykonos beaches because the beaches there actually had sand so it made for a fun day at the beach. The best beaches during our trip were Super Paradise and Pink Beach (although Cody still believes the beaches in Hawaii are the best). actually share the same cove, but are regarded as separate beaches because of their different names. Taking a walk along Paraaga Beach was another great experience. The beach was great for massages and the fruit they served was amazing!

Regardless of how much time we spent at the beach or on the deck, sunscreen was a necessity. Take it from me, never skimp on SPF! I wish I had taken better care of my skin when I was younger! This sunscreen stick is a big hit with me (and B, too, he wouldn’t stop using it The portable sunblock is easy to carry (and never makes a mess) and makes applying sunblock to the kids so simple. We can make sure they get full coverage by applying it to their face without worrying about it getting in their eyes. They also don’t get it in their eyes with it on their face. My love for Jessica and the Honest brand is well known to all of you. We’re working on some exciting projects together! Today, I am teaming up with them to give away a sunscreen bundle and 30% off the first month’s essentials bundle with this ERROR

HF30. I seriously cannot believe how cute their diapers are and so many other things we use in our home every day.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Our party mode has kicked into full gear since we returned from California! Our son’s birthday is on Monday, so we’re going to throw a party for his friends on Saturday and a family party on The day and hour until Wes’ party keeps coming up, so he keeps asking when his party is. This was one of my favorite outfits from New York Fashion Week. My discovery of each of these pieces came at a totally different time, but having tried them on made me go OMG. It looks as if Gucci has an amazing new designer and all their pieces are out of this world! There is no doubt a designer piece is an investment, but the attention to detail they put into them makes them so special. The look I envisioned was a mix of grunge and feminine to give it a “tough meets glam” vibe. An appliqued denim jacket contrasts perfectly with the lace detail of this dress. With a pair of leather ankle boots, you can complete the look with a denim jacket, which is a great casual layer for you to transition your favorite fall dresses into the season. This boot has been in my closet ever since I bought it. Since then, I have been wearing them nonstop with everything from dresses to jeans. I definitely splurged on them, but they will continue to make a wardrobe statement for years to come. I’ve put together a list of similar pieces below so you can recreate this look on a budget!

There is no better time of year for fashion than fall! Finding budget buys makes it so easy to refresh my fall wardrobe because I get so excited to try all the latest styles. Ruffles have been on my mind a lot lately and I love the way they’re popping up in this season’s fashions! There is nothing better than an olive green blouse for under $50 (also available in blush) when the ruffle detail makes it seem much more pricey than it actually is. In addition to this nude satin top (under $50), I love this silk shirt in white- such a great neutral! As one of the fall trends I am most excited about, velvet is another great choice. The velvet booties I just got are black and I want them all in different colors. They’re perfect heel height and a steal for Now through Sunday, Nordstrom is offering triple points on select fall pieces for a limited time, so there’s no better time to stock up on your favorite fall pieces. Here are a few of my picks for the moment

My skin care routine gets more and more important as I get older. The beginning of my career would have been better had I My face would have had a few fewer wrinkles, but it’s better to do it In reading this article I was recently informed of all the negative effects your excessive cell phone usage That’s a lot! Although I know I am not the only one, it seems like everything I do is connected to My phone is always with me. I regularly check texts, emails, social media, etc.. Sometimes I honestly feel guilty about it, because I am too attached to my device. In the work world I feel like I am working 24 hours a day, and I have had to set timeframes so I can try to manage my life. Otherwise the day just slips by and I am not even aware of

There are so many of our favorite tech devices that affect our body in negative ways, from our phones to tvs to computers, etc. But, hey, let’s face it, any extreme can be bad for our bodies, so here are a few of my guilty vices and some ways to overcome

Spending a lot of time watching your favorite Your favorite tv show is just one episode away from releasing a new season on Netflix, so it might take a miracle for you to pull yourself away after 30 minutes of sit-down watching. But your metabolism slows by 90% after 30 minutes of sitting. It is natural for your metabolism to slow down as you age, so don’t try to hurry it! You should do some crunches or squats while watching “Next Episode” if you are going to press “Next”.

All day long, you’re glued to your phone Approximately 221 times a day, the average person looks down at their phone. (And I might be twice as many, working from home, and relying on my phone more than anything!) Looking down so much throughout the day can cause tech neck, those annoying lines and wrinkles on the neck, but, since I need my phone so much for work I cannot There are specific products designed just for your neck – the skin on your neck is thinner and has fewer oil glands so it has a higher tendency to age. I always thought you should use any skincare product you apply on your face as well on your neck, but you do not have to. Using this Strivectin neck cream for my neck has increased skin elasticity, which has helped smooth out those annoying horizontal lines in my neck. light and hydrating this product is – my skin felt so much softer, and my wrinkles seemed to have been softened.

An overview of your social media activity each night Counting sheep might seem like fun at night, but it actually has the opposite effect. Playing Candy Crush before bed stimulates your brain, making it harder to fall asleep – have you ever been up until 2 am because your brain won’t slow down to wind down? Dark circles under your eyes and puffy eyes are things you want to avoid if you can kick that habit quickly.

We are all working, we are working, we are working, we are working Even though you’re bound to your desk job or your laptop all day for work, you can’t avoid being hunched over your phone or computer all day! The bad habits you develop now can cause long-term posture problems in the future, so choose ways to accomplish your work without compromising your You may also want to elevate your computer screen (a good chair helps!)

The problem is not knowing when it should be turned It is no secret that staring at a screen all day can cause a number of problems for your vision, such as dry eyes, eye strain, and astigmatism. Why do this before you actually need Do not be afraid to disconnect and take a break from your electronic devices.

Whenever Fashion Week rolls around, it is a whirlwind of events. As busy as last year was, I think this year will be one of the best for me. My usual visit to the beach is for a half-week since I hate being away from my family for longer periods of time. This year I went with the intention of taking it easy, spending more time in the bath, and enjoying sleeping in. No, haha! That didn’t quite happen and don’t get me wrong, I really do love what I do! It was just a crazy couple days for me. It is exciting from a fashion show perspective to see the newest collections, meet designers, and hear about inspiration behind the collection. It is also fun to watch the people-watching on the streets of NYC, where there are I am so inspired after reading this!

There is nothing worse than having a busy work trip! The following are a few things that I find essential in order to survive the rush

Travel pillows that are good. They always tease me about carrying my pillow on the plane with me (don’t forget to bring a clean pillow case Nothing will ruin your trip more quickly than a bad night’s If I don’t have a travel pillow and a window seat, I’m not going to sleep on a red-eye flight to New York Fashion Week. If you don’t plan on a red-eye, you never know when your flight will be delayed, leading to a five-hour layover in place of your 45 minute layover.

This mask is for the face. In addition to a face mask, I always pack a travel sized lotion to help restore my skin The perfect ending to your night leaves you feeling refreshed and confident as you prepare for the rest of the week. This one is my favorite.

Bathing for a long time. I always make sure to take a long hot bath or shower after landing or arriving home at night, no matter what time of day it is. The best way for me to unwind at the end of the day is to sit with my book

Hair products that are right for you. Traveling dehydrates me to the point that my skin, hair, and body are all drier. In order to prevent my ends from looking dry, I always have my Nexxus Promend leave-in split end cream on hand. Be sure to research the climate of the place that you’ll be visiting as well as to pack appropriately! The humidity in New York always makes my hair frizzy so this Nexxus Frizz Defy Finishing Mist saved my hair. The mist also gives your hair a natural hold so that your hair style will hold from the first cup of coffee to the last bite of The dry shampoo is another staple in my bag (this one smells amazing!) Sometimes skipping a hair wash is worth it if you can hit the snooze button a couple times.

The top can be worn in two different If you pack efficiently, you will always bring items that can be used for more than one purpose. You can’t go wrong with this tailored button down, and the scalloped detail takes it to the next level. You can wear it with a blazer and trouser suit for meetings and pair with a wide-leg pant for a date night or networking event.

The shoes you wear for walking. This is an item that even the most formal of business meetings will be suitable for! Putting on a comfortable pair of shoes is a must when going on a business trip. The shoes should say “no nonsense” but should also be able to move easily. stylish boots – they have a low heel which is going to make a big difference when you are on block 5 and they are as put together as they were when you started.

I wish you a very happy Monday. All the best to you all over the long The Halloween collection is about to launch and I am SO EXCITED! I love celebrating Halloween since it feels like a transition into fall and one of my favorites. A new design is always one of the most exciting parts of the process for me. I am so excited to share with you all this ‘Boo’ tee, one of my favorites and a chic way to get ready for the holidays. Our kids’ collection is just as cute too – how cute is B in his matching shirt?! Visit the collection here to see the whole collection.

I hope you all have a great Sunday! The weekend brunch is one of my favorite meals – nothing beats a good breakfast on a Sunday morning, It can be just as enjoyable to prepare your own tasty breakfast on those relaxing mornings at home. The following are some of my favorite savory and sweet recipes that I have found over the years. You can find more ideas on my Pinterest!

This time of year seems like it will last forever. The sun is shining, the grass is actually green, and we can finally hang our bulky winter jackets up. The process of switching up your wardrobe is one of the exciting things about the changing of the seasons. It isn’t unusual for spring weather to be unpredictable. The weather is changing day to day, one minute it’s hot and humid, the next moment it’s rainy and cold, and every now and then it’s both at once, making it difficult to determine You’ll find plenty of outfit inspiration here if you’re looking for some spring outfit ideas. My and my coworkers’ first task was to share the pieces they wear all season long – a team of product reviewers and discerning shoppers. Here are some fashion staples that women can wear this spring.

If you are from a country that had to undergo isolation and lockdown last year, then you probably spent most of the winter enjoying the comfort of your own bed and watching Netflix. I believe that winter is the most fashionable time of year, as this is when the parkas and turtlenecks make their way out of the back of the closet and hit the streets once again.

Last year, many of us didn’t really get the chance to show off all of our more fashionable clothing items. After all, do you really need to change out of your sweats if you are watching Netflix and feeding your pets CBD cat treats ? Now that the world has started to open back up, your upcoming winter may have many more plans than your last winter. This winter may be the first time you have seen your friends in forever, so you may want to impress with how you look. The best way that you can impress us is by looking as fashionable as possible. Here are our fashion choices for the upcoming season.

Turtleneck

I’ve said it before, and I’ll repeat it, no winter fashion is better than a stylish turtleneck. The turtleneck is genderless, which means that everyone that wants to can wear a turtleneck. You can match a good turtleneck with a stylish pair of jeans or even a skirt or leggings. If you are someone that doesn’t really like the look of a turtleneck on its own, why not purchase a thin turtleneck and layer it with a thin tee or even a t-shirt dress. You can do a lot with a good turtleneck, and it also keeps you quite warm, so what is there not to love about it?

The Parka

I know I mentioned it in the introduction of this article, but there is no arguing that a good parka is the staple of any good winter outfit. Parkas come in an array of different colors, so no matter what your style is, you are bound to find a parka that matches. We recommend that you get yourself a black parka as this will be much easier to match with pretty much any outfit.

If you have ever been to the mall or for a nice walk during the winter, then you will be more than aware of just how many people choose to don a stylish parka. Parkas are great as they have your whole body covered, which means that you will have a lot of protection from the cold winter air. They also have a lot of pockets, and if you are a woman, you will know just how hard it can be to find an item of clothing with some decent pockets. This means that when you head on your winter Christmas shopping trip, you can keep all of your essentials in your pockets, which means that you can use your hands to carry around your dozens of shopping bags.

Hat, Scarf, and Glove

Knit Hat/Scarf/Gloves Set- Women Men Unisex Cable Knit Winter Cold Weather Gift Set - ForestAfter a year of trying to avoid a life-threatening disease, it would be silly of you to head out into the icy winter air and catch yourself a cold. You can still look good while staying warm this winter, so make sure that you are not prioritizing your fashion over your appearance.

You can still look good in your winter gear, and if knitting was one of the hobbies that you picked up during lockdown, then why not try and put yourself together a brand new set ahead of winter. By making your own set, you will have something unique to you. If you have an issue finding a hat that fits well on your head, why not make one for yourself to measure up until it is a perfect size?

If you like to wear named brands and don’t really enjoy the warm winter look, worry not. Every single major brand has its own hat, scarves, and gloves, so you don’t have to compromise any of your fashion along the way.

Winter dresses

Just because it is a little colder outside does not mean that you should abandon dresses altogether. There are plenty of retailers that offer a line of thick dresses that are perfect for the winter. You can even wear the dresses that you love to wear all year long, but pair them with some thick thermal tights and a cute jacket.

There is no excuse to look bad this winter and so try your best not to revert to your comfortable clothes that you have already spent enough time lying around in within the last year.

Fast fashion is a symptom of globalization and capitalism.

 

Fast fashion is the phenomenon of producing clothes at exponential rates to keep up with high-fashion trends set by fashion companies. The ‘fast’ part of fast fashion comes from how the clothes are made, how fast the clothes cycle through fashion trends, and what happens to the clothes after they’ve been discarded – all in the name of fashion, of course.

Before fast fashion, there was seasonal fashion; fashion trends based on the change in weather and the need for different clothing styles. In stark contrast to this, fast fashion took over, taking the need to want in the fashion industry.

 

Fashion of need

According to ‘The Good Trade’ in ‘What Is Fashion, Anyway?’, before fashion was based on fluctuating trends, the fashion industry created its garments on the changes in season, which influenced the changes in fashion at the time. This fashion of need was the prevalent form of fashion, mostly because the industrial revolution hadn’t happened yet. Creators and consumers were bound by (in comparison to current times) rudimentary machinery and manual labor. Not only did this take money, but it also took time. Therefore, clothing was more expensive – consumers couldn’t afford to buy clothes as often as is normal now, nor was there time or money for the clothing industry to create the amount of clothing that cycles through shops in current times.

 

The clothing revolution

‘Bellatory’, in ‘Ready-to-Wear: A Short History of the Garment Industry’, explains once the industrial revolution enveloped the “western world”, clothes could be produced much faster and, therefore, at cheaper rates. Every aspect of the industry was supplemented with technology, making every stage of clothing creation faster.

It was the fashion industry that revolutionized this industry of need into one of want. With clothing now faster to produce, different styles and cuts were easier to make en masse, and the demand for fashion became a new front for the clothing industry. This was the beginning of fast fashion. With advertisements for new and different clothing now part of popular media, the notion of “fashion” became widespread.

‘Bellatory’ explains another large step for the clothing industry was the move from locally produced clothing to internationally produced clothes. Many clothing companies chose to move their factories to other countries, where worker’s pay was cheaper and the lack of regulation meant cheaper production. The clothing industry, operating on a low-expenditure high-production system, began to create clothing at rapid rates, and with the ability to keep up with equally quick fashion trends. ‘Bellatory’ tells us how clothing quality became progressively worse with the new invention of plastic. Again, a cheap material to make, plastic is a huge part of the current clothing industry.

 

Fast fashion and pollution

‘The Good Trade’ tells us about fast fashion and the environment. With the decline in the quality of materials used in clothing, garments don’t last as long and are thrown away quicker. A lot of the clothes made by the clothing industry end up in landfills or garbage incineration – either way, this means pollution.

Despite landfill and incineration, many of the clothes thrown away (a symptom of fast fashion) end up in the ocean and, because of the low-quality materials they’re made with, cause pollution. These pollutants contaminate wildlife and their natural habitats, with the damage occurring irreversible; these pollutants will be in the environment forever. This also directly affects humans in the matter of the food-chain.

 

Fish caught from the sea have these pollutants in their bodies, and we consume those pollutants when we eat seafood. The long-term consequences of plastic pollutants are still unknown but have already been linked to higher rates of cancer.

 

Fashion and the internet

With the rise of the internet, the fast fashion industry’s reach grew even more. With stores placing themselves on the internet, creating an online presence, everyone with access to the internet had access to them and their entire catalog. Clothes shopping didn’t just happen on the high street anymore, people could now buy clothes online and have them delivered to their home. While this may seem normal to us, the internet and its connections were revolutionary to all businesses. just last week i got a great deal on my broadband from here but a few years ago you would have been hard-pressed to find anything as stable.

 

According to ‘The Good Trade’ and ‘Bellatory’, the high street fashion industry has a high turnover of styles and trends. This, of course, is driven by the internet and the variety of product comparison sites. If fashion companies weren’t online, there would be less demand for new fashions and styles and therefore less turnover of garments. However, the opinion on whether the internet is harming the fashion world is a matter of opinion.

 

Is the internet harming the fashion world?

Those who partake in “high-fashion”, such as that of Paris Fashion Week, maybe of the opinion that the internet is harming fashion. With creators spending an entire year culminating new ideas and transforming them into new innovations for fashion, such creators may dislike the fast fashion of high street companies. The argument could be made that, with so many companies influencing “general” fashion, fashion overall is being polluted with trend fluctuations that aren’t itself fashion.

 

On the other hand, those high street companies whose business largely depends on online sales may disagree and argue “high-fashion” is inaccessible to those who shop at high street stores, and by following, trends are providing those shoppers with the fashion they can relate to.

 

So, what’s your opinion?

When you think of fashion, I imagine you picture glamorous runways and even more glamorous exclusive parties. The fashion industry is a billion-dollar industry that shows no sign of slowing down. Every year we buy products from some of the big-name brands, which gives them the opportunity to invest in creating even more clothing options. Something that a lot of people do not know is that a lot of big-name fashion brands actually use their influence and monetary power to donate to a number of charities.

 

There isn’t a charitable cause that has not received funds from fashion brands. Usually, the brands will donate to organizations that link closely to the message of the brand, but they are not restricted in which brands they donate to. In recent years, one of the main categories of charity that has been donated by fashion brands is medicare charities. There has been a big increase in brands donating to medicare charities in the last few years for a number of reasons. First of all, the medical sector has been under a lot of pressure for some time now due to a decrease in funding and an increase in demand. This has only magnified through the introduction of Covid 19, which has seen a mass population of hospitals and a drain on medical resources.

 

These brands not only donate to these charities, they also host events with the goal of spreading medical education in mind. But which fashion brands are donating millions to medicare?

 

Alice and Olivia

Alice and Oliva is an online-based fashion brand, offering year-round comfortable clothing to its consumers. Though this brand is by no means the biggest on this list, their contribution to medicare has been astonishing.  Since the start of the Corona pandemic, Alice and Olivia have donated 10% of their profit to causes that are aiding the treatment of Corona sufferers. This is a large part of their profit margin, yet they have promised to continue to do so until a viable cure is found and distributed nationwide.  They have been donating to charities in need since April last year and since then there have been hundreds of reports from charities that they have worked with, thanking them for their generous donations.

 

Skims

Skims is Kim Kardashian’s own clothing line and, much like Alice and Oliva, the brand has been making big steps to help with the current pandemic. The brand has pledged 20% of all profits made from its products to be donated to underfunded hospitals and other smaller health organizations. Skims promises that even after the strain of the pandemic decreases, they will continue to donate profits as they feel that the health care sector, in general, is underfunded and in need of additional funds. They hope that their donations will encourage other brands to take some pressure off of the already strained health sector.

 

 

Tom Ford

Everyone has heard of Tom Ford and the vast amount of money that they have donated to charity is no secret. The brand has been giving back to its community for over a decade, sponsoring several causes and supporting various charities. Even before the start of the pandemic, Tom Ford was donating to dozens of charities that supported medicare. Not only does the brand donate to various charities, but they also host events to spread the importance of the medical sector and also promote new medical findings. Just last year they hosted an event that discussed the advantages in choosing microcannulas over traditional needles with the hope that more medical centers will use them as part of their practices, due to the substantial cost difference between the two.

 

Michael Kors

Michael Kors has been donating to varying medical charities for a number of years due to his own experiences with his mother’s deteriorating health. The brand has donated thousands of dollars to charities specializing in the treatment of diabetes and other long term health conditions. During Michael Kors runway shows, attendees are expected to donate to various charities that Kors represents and there are often raffles that give all the proceeds to these charities.
