abby top - black
abby is my throwback going-out top, but still work appropriate. abby is an asymmetrical, knit top ideal for adding some dynamism to your look. made from a sustainable fabric called tencel, abby is easy to care for, simply cold wash & dry flat. email me and i’ll send you a fabric sample because this fabric is a major selling point - it’s super soft & has the right amount of stretch.
designed & made in los angeles
materials - 63% tencel, 32% nylon, 5% polyurethane
source - zentex
care - cold wash, dry flat
i donate a percentage from each sale to causes, charities, & people helping to make the world a better place. this season, i’m donating to food on foot, a nonprofit dedicated to assisting our homeless and low-income neighbors in los angeles with nutritious meals, clothing, and a fresh start through a life-skills education, full-time employment, and permanent housing.
plus, i plant a tree for each order. 🌲 i’ve partnered with national forest foundation to help me plant trees to offset my impact on the environment.
