My daughter Jean learned how bad overconsumption and fast fashion are by watching THE TRUE COST. So she decided to do something about it and opened an eco-boutique five years ago in Seattle. This month she had to close Drizzle & Shine in-store shopping, but I’m happy to announce she has moved to online.
“May 2nd was our last day in our Capitol Hill location. We’re exclusively online now. You can read the details on this blog post.
**We have online shopping (with free shipping for orders over $50) and we’ve started refreshing inventory with lots of spring goodies.
Welcome to Drizzle & Shine! We’re an online eco-boutique. You’ll find a carefully curated selection of clothing, shoes, and accessories. We specialize in items that are kind to the earth and animals and that are made by people who are treated fairly.
We love to showcase local designers, small businesses, and businesses that make a difference in the community—and world. You don’t need to break the bank to do your part. Eco items that are made to last will make you feel great.”~Drizzle & Shine
Doing good has never looked so good!
This breezy white tunic arrived in the mail from Drizzle & Shine (it’s a soft, loose knit and a little longer in the back) I can also wear it at the beach as a coverup.
A white summer top is a staple for any woman’s wardrobe. I love adding pops of colour to an all-white outfit. Simply switch things up with scarves, accessories and shoes to create another look.
“The worst part about closing the Drizzle & Shine physical location was laying off my wonderful staff. I didn’t make this decision lightly. And frankly, it wasn’t really a choice. We just can’t stay open and pay the expenses of a brick and mortar store with the drop in sales we’ve seen since the beginning of the pandemic.
Going exclusively online doesn’t take the time and work that running a physical location requires. People are the best part of a store. But without customers to interact with, displays to set up, shelves of inventory to replenish, events and fundraisers to plan and run, there isn’t enough work for any of us.”
If you follow my blog, you know that I promote slow fashion: fair trade, cruelty-free, sustainable. Who made my clothes is important because no one should suffer for fashion (See THE TRUE COST on my side bar).
It’s an urgent matter. We need to care. That’s all it takes.
Information + Compassion = Solution
A video I put together on the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of some of the clothes, shoes and jewellery from Jean’s eco-boutique.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
