When I think of what the everyday woman wears, I picture a comfortable yet simple outfit that looks put together. I actually envision one of the dresses that I’m designing for Sotela’s first collection. Comfort is key in my book and doesn’t just stop at clothes, but includes undergarments as well.
Larskpur is a lingerie brand that is hand sewn in Los Angeles with locally sourced eco-friendly fabrics. Each item has comfort in mind, but also looks elevated with lace, sequined appliques, and straps made with repurposed vintage fabrics.
I met Amanda, founder of Larkspur, several months ago where she passionately talked about her lingerie brand. When she first started her company, there weren’t many eco-friendly lingerie brands that had pieces for the everyday woman. Amanda said that most eco-friendly lingerie options were mainly catered to an older audience. Finding inspiration through vintage clothing and bohemian neighborhoods, Amanda created a brand that can appeal to younger women who want to be comfortable yet sexy. The Kinsey Cami and Panty set, shown above, fit the bill.
For quality control purposes, I tested the Kinsey set for comfort and fit. Just like Amanda said, the cami and panty were beyond comfortable with seams that never dug into me. The lace and sequined applique make these undergarments sexier, but still hold its comfort.
And since it is cold and I can’t stand cold feet, you will always find me with socks at home. These Mitscoots socks are my favorite because they are thick enough to keep my feet warm, but still fit in all of my shoes. I bought these socks using the Orange Harp app, which makes shopping ethically made clothing and accessories so much easier! You can search by category and see the sustainable standard each product satisfies. For example, some products provide fair working conditions or cleans the planet using recycled plastic water bottles.
