SPONSORED: Noyette is a sustainably made & size-inclusive women's clothing brand made in L.A.
Noyette is a sustainably made and size-inclusive women's clothing brand made in Los Angeles, California featuring feminine florals and minimalist styles in bold colors that are fashion forward — all made from high-quality deadstock fabric, in order to reduce their footprint and make use of overage fabric already in existence. By utilizing deadstock fabric, each print and color is limited edition for the size run created. Noyette offers a size inclusive expanded size range of XXS - XXL in every style because they believe fashion should not be limited. As a body-positive brand, Noyette hopes to expand the size ranges even further in the future. Made sustainably in California with inclusive sizing, Noyette offers high-end-quality garments all at a more accessible price point with each style priced under $300. Each of the dresses in their first collection is named after a street in NYC, L.A. and SF, inspired by the cities and the founder, Riley Bennett's time there. From the Fillmore (a minimalist and sophisticated satin t-shirt dress), to the West 82nd (a floral printed smocked midi dress with pockets), there is a bold playfulness to each dress made to make a statement. It goes beyond just fashion, though. For every order, 10% of each order value is donated to a charitable organization. This is not for a limited time period either, Noyette is committed to always giving back for all orders. Currently, The Loveland Foundation, Planned Parenthood, Campaign Zero and The James Beard foundation are featured as organizations customers can donate a portion of their order to. {Noyette}

Emily Ratajkowski on owning her own image
In a very powerful personal essay for The Cut, Emily Ratajkowski candidly writes about owning her image and consent, as well as what it feels like to be captured by the lens of cameras wielded by men hoping to sell her photo for a hefty sum. "All these men, some of whom I knew intimately and others I'd never met, were debating who owned an image of me," Ratajkowski writes. "I've become more familiar with seeing myself through the paparazzi's lenses than I am with looking at myself in the mirror. And I have learned that my image, my reflection, is not my own."  {The Cut
