As part of my ‘Conscious Closet‘ pursuit, I’ve gotten much more invested in the sourcing of my clothes. I want to learn where things are made and what goes into production. I love the transparency of companies like Everlane that even let you track an item from production to your doorstep. But brands that go one step further and also use profits for good? That’s the true gem. And that’s why Alexis Mera, based out of New York City first stole my heart with it’s mission, then got my loyalty with their product. It’s a simple concept: local production of high-end loungewear with a portion of sales going to non-profit organizations for women’s aid.
I feel honored to share with you their vision for the conscious consumer. Also, I’m completely hooked on the posh-yet-pajama-feeling fabrics thing they’ve managed (these full-length jogger pants even scrunched perfectly into spring style capris). So pop on over to their website for more info. And as a special gift, use code “LESLIE” for 10% off your online order from Alexis Mera.
