I have a confession. I'm obsessed with jewelry. Oh, and bags and scarves, too.
Confession number two: I'm obsessed with slow fashion, with being more intentional about my wardrobe and where it all comes from.
These obsessions are not something I've talked a lot about, or ever, really. I've never felt girly or hip enough to talk about fashion or jewelry. And I feel like I'm still such a baby on my own journey with slow fashion; why should I have anything to say about the matter?
But recently my obsession worlds are colliding, and I've decided to get out of my comfort zone and share it all with you, dear reader. So here we are.
About a year ago, a friend of mine started posting on her social medias about a company called Noonday Collection. It made sense for her to post about such things. She's a lead actress in a show in Vegas. She's gorgeous. Always very fashionable. And this was something to do while she wasn't performing.
When I dug a bit deeper into her posts I noticed that it was different than your average company. This company had a mission. This company empowered women. This company changed the lives of people and families all over the world by providing jobs and healthy working conditions. AND their products were beautiful and totally my style.
Over the next few months, this little voice kept nudging me saying, "You should work with Noonday. You would love this. It would do a lot of good." I would quickly respond to myself with, "I couldn't pull that off. I would sound silly selling jewelry. I don't even like selling things. I don't need the income. And is this company even for real?"
