The Garment  Connecting women and responsible brands. Calgary, Canada. βœ‰οΈ: morgan@thegarment.ca


The other day, I had a conversation with the founder of a responsible fashion brand. She talked about loving the capsule wardrobe idea, and also about the tension that exists for Makers who are in the business of selling clothes to communicate about it. I loved her honesty and suspect many of the other Makers here think carefully about this as well. But here's the exciting thing... There are literally millions of people out there, maybe even BILLIONS, who have never even thought about where their clothes come from, or who makes them. So, #thegarmentmakers, if we really believe in this "fewer better" concept, we could focus our messaging on selling garments to existing customers when they need them, and go about the work of finding all those millions of other people to buy these beautiful, ethically made clothes if they don't? What do you think? #scary? #mostcourageousthingsare πŸ˜‰ πŸ“·: @kararohlphoto

And just like that, the "pre-school" chapter for this little girl has come to the end. Two years ago, she was shy and asked me to do "Kissing Hands" (does everyone know that book?) so she could keep me in her heart each time I would leave ❀️. Now, just like the flowers behind her, she has blossomed. She is confident, sweet and kind (she made a piece of art for each of her classmates for the last day of schoolπŸ’“). Today, as both she and the days begin to look towards fall, I'm feeling a bit sad, but also proud, and tremendously grateful ✨. #thesearethedays

Today, as the hours of sunlight peak, I'm taking stock of the past, and putting my mind to the future. In 2014, "I have another healthy baby." was at the top of my list (Goal Tip #1 - write goals as if they've already come true βœ”οΈ). And, here you see that baby, running through fields of clover with her beloved Puppy❀️. Getting to her wasn't easy, and today I'm reflecting on what it took. The main thing? I got excited about what life would look like after she arrived. And then I took action. I sewed her (or him πŸ˜‰) a pair of leggings, and bought a glider board for the back of the stroller for the girl who would become a big sister. While it wasn't always easy, I allowed myself to feel the imaginary weight of the baby I yearned so deeply to hold. I did a bunch of other things that were hard and tested my strength. And then I trusted that s/he would come. Today, as I conceive of other things, I'm doing the same ✨.

Remember this dress? The one that was the subject of the flat lay incident a couple of weeks ago πŸ™ˆπŸ˜¬? Well I'm pleased to report that she washed up beautifully, and is back as good as new πŸ‘πŸ». That's true for both of them, actually πŸ˜‰. #hangingwithmybabybird #inmypyneandsmithdress

Six Hundred and Fifty Two. What's that, you ask? That's the number of responsibly made garments that have been connected to women - to you - so far this year. 652!! You guys, that's a lot. And it means just 348 to go until we hit the #1000garmentgoal πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ‘πŸ». So, friends, this is your community - what Responsible Makers would you like to see in the line-up for fall? πŸ‚#thegarmentcommunity

He not only taught me about fashion (I mean c'mon, those shorts?! πŸ˜…) but also about ethics. My dad worked in the banking industry for years. He was in sales, which meant he had targets to meet. While he always more than met them, he began to feel uneasy about the fact that the commission that he was paid to hit those targets wasn't always transparent, and that the things he got paid the most for weren't always best for the client. And so he quit. He quit his high paying job and set up his office in our basement and built what is now a thriving wealth management business from the ground up. The name? Unbiased Financial Services - something that reflects the unwavering integrity upon which it was built. Thank you dad, for showing me what entrepreneurship looks like at its finest, and for walking beside me as I pave my way ✨. #linkinprofile

"I love you Sweetie Pie." - Her answer to the question on the little interview we did for Father's Day asking what her dad always says to her ❀️. He says this often, and loves them fiercely. HFD to him, my dad, and all the dads out there who play big when it comes to their kiddosπŸ™ŽπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ‘πŸ». #cuteinterviewlinkinprofile

Have you heard?! The original @jamieandthejones T-sweater is BACK!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ». If you've been following along for awhile now, you'll know this baby is a true favourite. She's lightweight enough to be worn in the summer, and cozy enough for winter. Great on her own, or layered over dresses. I'm wearing a S/M in the old sizing, which is equivalent to the M now. If you decide to get one, note on the invoice that you heard about it here, and it will count towards the #1000garmentgoal πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ». Happy Saturday friends! 🍷😘#linkinprofile

Isn't it amazing, the human capacity to love? Before I had her, I couldn't imagine loving anyone as much as I love her big sister. And now? Well that look says it all πŸ’—. #june30x30 #secondoutfitoftheday #theonlypicihaveofthefirstishalfcoveredbyapotatosack πŸ˜‚ #swipeleft

Headed home to start the weekend and feeling like πŸ‘†πŸ»πŸŽ‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ». #tbt

"Low price and fast trends have made clothing throwaway items, allowing us to set aside such serious questions as 'How long will this last?' or even 'Will I like it when I get home?'" @elizabethlcline. Friends, those are important questions. Not asking them means we end up with closets full of stuff we don't like. And then we have to take time "edit" that stuff. And, if we're not careful, we head to the mall and repeat the whole silly cycle over again 😧. #theresabetterway #buylesschoosewellmakeitlast #june30x30 #thegarmentcommunity

First day back at work today, and I missed these girlies so much I asked our nanny to bring them down to my office for lunch. It was a funny blending of worlds, as I made an effort not to do any inappropriate squats in front of coworkers as I prevented O from falling in the turtle pond πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ’. The smash up of mom/work worlds was chaotic and loud and also kind of beautiful ✨. P.s. If you're following my #june30x30 you'll note these shoes aren't part of it. They're my emergency office shoes, kept for occasions like turtle pond safety protection πŸ‘·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ‘πŸ».
