“I wanted to make pieces to last years. Beyond trends, beyond chain stores. I wanted to create something all its own, something just for us, made with love and consideration. Made ethically in the USA as a small company with no corporate input. Uncompromising, unapologetic, humane, and timeless. Go-to pieces designed to last.”- Beth Ditto
Yes Beth Ditto has a clothing line and Yes it is expensive. I bought some pieces in the sale and I am so impressed by the quality, styles and designs. These are statement pieces and made to be worn for years to come. I bought a couple of pieces from the Evans Collection that Beth did years ago and they are still firm favourites! I see these being the same.
This is the Kim Style top and is very oversized and boxy so fits all shapes and sizes. I am wearing the 3x and could have bought a 1x and have no doubt it would have still fit my size 26/28 body. I used a belt to give shape. The print is just so fun and the colours are vibrant.
I have styled it quite casual. I was feeling rather down at the time but putting on this beautiful piece of clothing designed for fat bodies like mine by an amazing woman that inspires me was just what I needed. Fashion is not just clothes or material it is magical and can transform a timid mouse into a roaring lion.
Feeling confident can come from looking great and that is a powerful thing. Fashion is powerful and I love it!
Thank you Beth for empowering people and empowering me!
