Time is the most valuable commodity – we’re all strapped for it. We want to feel good, look good, and make good choices. We believe luxury should and can have standards – and we’ve set out to help simplify how to shop and identify brands that have similar values to you. We’re not perfect, but we do try to make small steps to be more mindful in our choices – starting with what to wear.

We’ve broken down a guide to what we look for when building a more conscious closet.
Artisanal & Handmade
Want a truly one-of-a-kind find? Opt for items that are artisanal or handmade as they are made in limited-batches so each item is bespoke and unique.
As a female-founded brand, we love lifting up other women entrepreneurs. We’ll continue to share items from brands that are female-founded and female-operated.
There’s a lot of confusion out there on what is sustainable and what isn’t. Here at SHOPPES, we’ve worked with our partners to bring you items that are produced in a way that benefits the larger ecosystem and helps combat effects of climate change.
Brands that have a priority focus on offering an inclusive and extended size-range are near and dear to the SHOPPES team hearts!
Doesn't just have to be for produce. Yes, fashion can be organic too! Look out for brands certified with an official organic designation from the USDA. This means they were created with fibers that do more than create a stylish look – they’re down to earth.
