We Wear Elegantees
Nikki is a Dreamer.
From her enriching early education, Nikki was always inspired to be a big dreamer in knowing that we all have the opportunity to change the world in a positive way. She understands that we don't have to be perfect at it but it does require that we show up in any way that we can. As a Noonday Ambassador, Nikki sees a big beautiful world out there filled with dreams waiting to be pursued with courage and hope.
Nikki shares: "I personally love that each garment of Elegantees is so incredibly comfortable and also stands the test of time. Made from the softest material ever and some of my favorite colors and patterns, each garment is made in a way where I can make the look my own, and feel so empowered in doing so. It honestly makes me feel ready to take my own world-changing business to a whole new level. It is that powerful. Elegantees will always be one of my go-to companies for beautiful ethical fashion!"
Let's dream big.
Nikki loves knowing that her purchase is empowering women and giving them dignity, hope, and economic prosperity. "Elegantees is connecting me as a consumer to the maker of my clothing. It is a true testament to the power we have as consumers to be more conscious about what we are buying because when we know better we can do better."

Elizabeth is Curious.
To connect in life, Elizabeth wants to always be curious about her feelings and experiences with the world and those around her. She knows that this will allow her to see a greater purpose than herself. Elizabeth believes that we all have a responsibility to love and celebrate one another as we are.
Elizabeth shares: "I'm particular when selecting clothing to purchase - they need to be high quality and flexible. It's important to me that I can wear something to work and at play and the cuts and styles of Elegantees can do just that. I am not looking for trendy, but timeless and classic because I want my clothing purchases to last a long time, meaning they have the capability of being re-imagined for years to come."
Always looking for opportunities to add to her wardrobe, the Postiano top is the perfect addition for Elizabeth. "I really enjoy simple silhouettes with special details and I was drawn to the clean, architectural lines of the Postiano top and it's versatility. It could easily be worn casually, professional, or dressed up for a night out."
Let's be curious to know more.

Miranda is of Compassion.
As a young adult, her favorite way of showing compassion is being a role model for younger girls. This in pursuing dreams and instilling confidence within themselves. She brings smiles to others, as it brings a smile to herself also.
Miranda shares: "Being a college student, I need simple and stylish pieces to wear to class each day, such as this Elegantees outfit. I love the Dipa tee because it is a transformable piece that can be dressed up or down. For the Callie skirt, it allows me to dress up and remain comfortable in a flowy soft material."
The Callie skirt in Olive Grove is so darling with our Dipa tee in Navy.
Let's go out of our way to show compassion.
Miranda loves how Elegantees brings a special message and meaning to each piece. "You are not just supporting a brand of clothing, but women who have overcome so much adversity and deserve a new beginning."

Emmy is of Faith.
She believes that people matter and that humans ought to take care of one another. To Emmy, that means looking beyond our own wants and needs. She shares her journey of fair fashion and ethical living in her blog, Good For Thought.
Emmy shares: "When I wear Elegantees I do not just feel good, I feel as though my purchase is changing lives (because it is). I love being able to share that with the people I come into contact with who comment on it. Elegantees makes me feel as though not only do people matter, but I can contribute in fulfilling needs of the people who do not have what I have."
Let's choose to believe people matter.
Emmy mentions: "Elegantees is a company that is working hard and going out of their way to empower other people. There are so many people focusing on the aspects of apparel that do not include the people who make them. However, with Elegantees, it’s not only about ethical treatment, but it’s about sustainability, giving those who are in the cycle of sex trafficking and poverty a way out, and making a difference."
Emmy loves the sleeves on the Sadie tee because it adds some fun and flair to a basic striped top.

Ashley models our Dipa tee and Erin cardigan. This is a beautiful color combination - elegant and cozy! The Dipa tee has a story of hope that is worth sharing. Named after an overcomer, Dipa is a 15 year old young lady in Nepal.
Dipa is of Hope.
At a young age, Dipa had to overcome many adversities. Her father went to prison for an accidental car incident, and her stepfather was lost to an earthquake. Another man came into her mother's life, but he had an alternate motive. Dipa was taken away by that man and faced sexual violence and abusive threats from him. Her mother connected with our non-profit partner, and they saved Dipa from enduring more misery. At 15 years old today, Dipa is currently living happily with Our Daughters safe home where she is learning and developing skills.
Ashley models our Dipa tee.
Let's always turn to hope.
Inspired by her resilience, we encourage you to remember Dipa's strength as you wear your own elegantee. You can have hope in all things too, sister!
