Comment from Chandra Fox:


My daughter and I recently dropped in on @ozma_of_california, right as they were in the middle of packing up all their SS18 shipments. The lovely Heidi Baker still welcomed us in with open arms. I drooled over the new collection while my almost 4 year old riled herself up into a manic frenzy over Heidi’s dog. Thank you Ozma for being so accepting of our madness! The first time I visited the brand Heidi was working out of a tiny studio over a juice shop in Venice. Over the years I’ve watched her brand (and space) grow in such a wonderful way. Seeing the amount of orders they were shipping out was inspiring, not surprising because her pieces are gorgeous. But it’s great to see such a demand for locally made designs. Adding a few more awkward selfies and shots from Ozma’s studio to my stories. PSA SS18 is now live on their site (pictured is the Vera Playsuit). ozmaofcalifornia madeincalifornia locallymade shopsmall thesenativegoods usamadedirectory ethicalfashion ethicalwriters

Spring 18 just arrived via @botanicaworkshop and I am in love. One of my favorite pieces is this Kona dress (pictured), made from reclaimed cotton/silk voile right here in LA. Pretty much what I want to wear all spring/summer. Also new, some gorgeous stretch silk charmeuse sets (that’s a tongue twister). Plus some of Botanicas classic cuts in beautiful fresh spring colors like Goji, Mimosa and Camellia. Pic from their lookbook, featuring @genevajuniper shot by @paleyontology. Sharing a few more images in our stories because it’s all so good! Looks are available for purchase on the botanicaworkshop site. madeinla ethicallymade sustainablelingerie thesenativegoods usamadedirectory

I look forward to this little guy every night! It’s been a few weeks of continual use now and I swear my skin is looking better, less crinkly, softer to the touch. Not sure what I’m going to do when it’s gone. Also, is it a little sad that face oil is what I’m excited about on a Friday night? 👵🏽 naturalskincare crueltyfree faceoil madeintheusa thesenativegoods usamadedirectory

Starting the week off right, by adding @mehaceramics to the directory. So thrilled to have finally collaborated with designer April Nickel, after crushing on her ceramics for so long. We did a little feature on her line, that includes some more shots of April’s beautiful work. She is also currently having a sale to make space for new inventory, everything is 30% off! And I want one of each, link to her shop is in our blog post. handthrown pottery shopsmall madeinchicago thesenativegoods usamadedirectory ethicalwriters

Daydreaming about this beautiful table scape and looking back on an amazing evening. Some times things pop up in life just when you need them, Wednesday nights dinner couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. Thank you @rachelpally @pvega and @thelittlest for giving me a moment to unwind, and for reminding me that we are all so alike in our struggles, fears and joys. We can feel alone in these feelings, but when we take the time to connect and communicate it provides a wonderful sense of comfort and relief. You ladies created such a thoughtful, heartfelt event 💖 thankful thesenativegoods usamadedirectory

One of my favorite girls, looking cute as a button in @gogentlynation. The LA made line uses 100% organic cotton in all their designs (babies, kids and women’s available). I can’t wait to see their new spring collections, but in the meantime their entire site is on sale. Including this Pocket Smock, so skillfully modeled by little Eliana. Great time to stock up for the kiddos (or yourself). Thanks for the pic @meleiwa, your little munchkin is 😍. gogentlynation organiccotton sustainablefashion ethicalfashion thesenativegoods usamadedirectory ethicalwriters

Another shot of the Split Infinitive shirt by @grammarnyc, made in NYC using organic cotton. I love how the volume of the top looks paired with a form fitting, high waisted pant like these by @jessekamm. Some of my favorite details of the button up are the gathering at the sleeves and back collar, more shots of these on the blog. grammarnyc organiccotton ethicalfashion ethicalwriters thesenativegoods usamadedirectory

I wasn’t able to march today, but seeing how many of you showed up has brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for using your voice, for speaking up for the environment, for women, for human rights and every other issue that you marched for. Thank you for resisting. I was 12 weeks pregnant with my daughter in this photo. Watching our country (and the world) change under our current administration has made me so scared for her future. But seeing so many people stand up gives me hope, thank you for that. inspired

There is just something about the white shirt, a classic and timeless staple. Althea Simons of @grammarnyc used this legendary style as a starting point for her NYC made line. Her first collection is comprised of only the white shirt, but with unique variations. In doing this she allowed herself to focus on just one area and perfect it. Our first blog post of the new year is up and features her line. Go check it out to learn more about Althea and her 100% organic line of button ups. madeinnyc organiccotton ethicalfashion sustainablefashion thesenativegoods usamadedirectory ethicalwriters

Wore these puppies all day yesterday and was surprised at just how comfortable they are! Made in LA with sustainably sourced materials, including non toxic, vegetable tanned leather. @zuziifootwear makes adorable kids shoes (my daughter has had a few pairs and is a big fan) but I’ve never owned a grown up pair until now. My feet are in love. madeinla locallymade clogs thesenativegoods usamadedirectory ethicalwriters

Comment from Chandra Fox:


I realized that I may have never properly introduced myself on here. You see my face a lot, and for that I apologize but I am the cheapest/easiest to book “model” that I know. My name is Chandra Fox, Northern California native (Humboldt County), mama to one rad little girl and two adorable pups, wife to a very social media shy husband, lover of the beach, the mountains, the snow and the sun. But also of city streets, train rides, dive bars, the crazy hustle and bustle of metropolitan areas. These Native Goods is an idea I cooked up because between chronic pregnancy/mom brain and my naturally horrible memory, I needed a list. A list to keep me organized, and motivated to change my own habits. While I was pregnant with my daughter I turned into a very sensitive pile of mush. And I started thinking about (and researching) things more than I had in a very long time, maybe ever. I was making a person in my belly, yet other people already existing in this world were being harmed in the process of making clothing/products that I might buy for my daughter (this didn’t sit well). The planet she was being born into was(is) being hurt immensely by our mass production of cheap goods. Additionally the market is full of bath/body products with harmful ingredients (just look at the Johnson & Johnson cancer lawsuits). I wanted to keep track of which brands were safe, natural and ethical. My state as an emotional, human growing vessel heavily influenced the site, by opening my eyes to what was going on. Then I combined that with my other love...(continued in comments)thesenativegoods

One of the biggest challenges I have encountered in my mission to avoid fast fashion has been finding affordable clothing for my daughter. I typically do a mix of hand me downs and second hand pieces. Plus a few new purchases from ethical and local brands, whenever the growth spurts hit (which happens pretty often). I also try to snag some of these brands during sample or holiday sales to save some $$$. Because of rapid growth (and let’s face it, rambunctious play) Olivia June’s clothes will not last her as long as my clothing lasts me. No matter how well they are made. But I still want to know that her pieces are quality and made in a responsible way, plus I love supporting local brands. @blackiboys is bridging the gap with their affordable, play ready kids line. Designer Patricia Williams is a soon to be mama of four, so she gets it! Her line is constructed from deadstock fabric and manufactured right here in LA by fellow mama @richhoneyapparel. The clothes are ultra comfy, priced right and ready for rowdy play (just ask Patricia’s three boys). Added bonus, Black i Boys also includes matching pieces for mamas! 📷 courtesy of @blackiboys. madeinla toddlerstyle thesenativegoods usamadedirectory ethicalwriters mxbla
