Hello, it's me again: Your resident denim queen. If you haven't shopped from Sanctuary yet, I highly advise you to do so. They carry a vast array of size-inclusive men and women's apparel, including tops, bottoms, swimwear, pajamas, face masks, and outerwear. They even carry accessories and home goods! And the best part? All of their items are sustainably, ethically made by incorporating recycled plastic, low-impact clothing fibers, and low water usage. This is a huge deal, considering the damage that much of the textile industry does to the environment.

Sanctuary also donates to a number of charitable causes, including initiatives to aid women in poverty and to donate PPE to essential workers. Talk about a brand that you can feel good about shopping from!

Now that you're excited, let us direct you to some great news: Sanctuary just started carrying denim again this month, sending us all into a frenzy to grab our credit cards and check out the new line. Here's a quick intro to this versatile line. We know you'll love it as much as we do.
