Heat Wave: Keep Cool in These Plus Size Made in USA/Ethical Styles
If there's one thing I've learned since moving to LA from the Bay, it's that the Summer heat in the valley is not playing around. Much as I tried to prepare my wardrobe for the steep temperature shift from the foggy cool of San Francisco to the blazing sunshine of LA, I admit I was not prepared. Combine that with my car break-in and theft of a good third of my closet right before the move, and it's safe to say I needed to seek the light and airy like nobody's business.
Luckily, there is no shortage of plus size shopping LA, and there are tons of local* and/or ethical designers producing locally. Here's what I've found to love so far!
Want more? Don't worry; it'll still be hot in the Valley for a few more weeks (ugh, Global Warming is real, y'all – and it suuuucks). I'll have more looks to share next week ;p.
IMPORTANT NOTE: US-made does not necessarily mean ethically made, it just means it was made locally. I cannot endorse US-made brands as inherently ethical without proof from these companies. Though US labor laws are stricter than many countries abroad, that does not mean that the US is sweatshop-free. Sucks. Let's fix that!
