A fashion brand based in NYC, SiiZU uses some of the most luxurious natural fabrics to bring us minimalistic designs we can wear time and time again. Their sophisticated, clean look is made for any woman who appreciates tailored, well-fitted garments with sustainability at its core. SiiZU's mission is to create ethically-made high-quality apparel at an affordable price - and they begin this process with their textiles. The fabrics are carefully chosen, and consist of Italian Merino Wool, Inner Mongolia Cashmere, Chinese Silk, Japanese Tencel and Japanese Linen. Each fabric is used to its full potential with minimal waste, and always zero toxins and polys. In order to lower their carbon footprint, they keep their fabric manufacturers and garment factories close to each other. If the fabric is sourced from Mongolia, the clothing is produced in Mongolia. No unnecessary moving of product! Even their shipping materials to send the beautiful garments to your doorstep are made from recycled paper. & not only is their carbon footprint considered, they think about your wallet, too. All clothing is sold directly online to eliminate high mark-ups and keep prices fair {all while paying workers fairly & choosing the best of the best factories}. To top it all off,  SiiZU donates to American Forests & their 2016 goal of planting 2.7 million trees to restore and protect critical wildlife habitat.

Now, on to the lovely garments I'm wearing in this post! I am a sucker for the peplum style, and the Sunna Silk Peplum Top is a stunner. It's sleek, seasonless and going to stay with me for many years to come. The mill where the Sunna was created is in Suzhou - the famous silk city in China {makes it even more special, right!?}. This silk has a local history dating back 6,000 years!

How sweet is the Zip Up Dress?! Modern, yet classic, this dress is made from one of my favorite textiles, Tencel {recycled wood cellulose}. Tencel is known for its smooth touch, absorbency and coolness. I love the relaxed fit and hi-lo hem - perfect for dressing up or down {wing tip flats / wing tip heels ;)} I'm in South Florida this week {it's 85 degrees}, but when I head back to Charleston I am adding some opaque tights! The factory where this garment is produced is located an hour outside of Beijing and comes complete with a green house put together by the owner, Ms. Wang! Lady after my own heart...
