We, as a company, mention and speak a lot about conscious consumerism. This cause is one that is laid into CHC's foundation. This concept is fairly broad and adopting it can be quite a process. For this reason, we've decided to introduce CHConscious, our latest Journal series, to share what we're learning!
1. Get inspired by your wardrobe and find your style: Take a peek into your closet and create looks you are confident in, what you know you'll wear. If you're having a hard time finding inspiration, we recommend looking at Pinterest, browsing magazines and blogs, finding style icons (celebrities whose style you always seem to be drawn to) and ask friends to help you identify your personal style!
2. Alternates to discarding: If while going through your closet you find items you don't think you'll get use out of, try selling used items on apps like Poshmark, or Mercari. There is also donation...we would, of course, recommend donating your gently used items to a WINGS resale store. These options are a bit more specialized and give life back to pieces you may have thought of as rubbish.
3. Make a list of needs vs wants: After cleaning out your space and finding your style, look for the gaps you'd like to fill and create a list of things you Need versus things you Want.
4. Need ethical inspo?: Here are a few (of the many )brands we recommend:

Every so often, I get the pleasure of working with a local shop to create a capsule collection of leather goods for their customer. This time, I collaborated with Winifred Grace, a lovely boutique tucked away in the West Edgewater/Andersonville neighborhood.
Week 2 of 5 in the month of May, brings us the Column Tote!
During this month, I'll be releasing a new design each week to my email base, exclusively.
In the mood for something new?! Me too.
If you have signed up for emails, you are all set!
I value those who have decided to stay in the loop so I'm doing a series of small-batch, fresh designs for the month of May; one per week!
You will preview them through IG & FB but only able to access them through a shop-able emailed link.
