In these strange times, it seems we’re all reconsidering how we get dressed. If there was one designer who was perfectly poised for these more casual moments, when we still want to feel like our best selves and pulled together while prioritizing comfort, it’s Nili Lotan. She’s always designed clothes for women to really live in, with the ease, comfort and sophistication that—let’s be honest—we’re all looking for, all of the time. A closet of Nili’s essentials is a pretty ideal wardrobe. And on top of great style, she’s also been inspiring us with her recipes and cooking videos on her Instagram stories. We’ll be seeing Nili in our closets and our kitchens!
Today we are bringing you a refreshing Beauty Minute with Chana Ginelle Ewing, founder of Geenie. Geenie is a curated beauty marketplace that pairs independent Black-owned beauty brands with consumers looking to buy based on their values. Geenie’s product offerings are sourced from BIPOC and other culture-first makers. Chana is using this platform as a mission to carve out a powerful and meaningful space for intersectionality within the beauty industry. And if you need a gift for a little one this coming holiday season, we highly recommend Chana’s children’s book, An ABC of Equality.
