Insights on Literature, etiquette, and Beauty from a Catholic wife and mom

Thank you Jessica Rey for sponsoring this post!

I first came across Jessica Rey when I was looking for an ethically made, modest swimsuit. When the suit arrived and I tried it on, it was the first time I felt completely comfortable in a bathing suit! The suit fit perfectly and the fabric was so soft! The quality is impeccable and it still looks brand new after wearing it non-stop during the summer!

I love that Jessica Rey now offers a sustainable clothing line! Gorgeous dresses and skirts, feminine tees and tops, and the most beautiful jumpsuits I’ve seen! This Rome Dress in Dusty Sage is a favorite, as well as the Verona Dress! I can’t decide if I like it better in Black or Navy!

Jessica Rey’s swimwear and clothing combine beauty, comfort, and modesty with ethical fashion! Each garment that Jessica Rey produces is ethically made in a factory in Los Angeles. The garments are also eco-friendly. The fabric of each swimsuit is created from 100% regenerated pre and post consumer waste (like discarded fish nets!). The dresses, skirts, and tops are all sustainable, made out of cotton and Tencel.

It’s essential to purchase ethically and support the businesses that work so hard to ensure that their workers receive a fair, living wage and are treated with dignity. Jessica Rey has created more than a company – she has established a business model that puts the well-being of its workers first, with a focus on high quality products.

Jessica Rey has generously offered to give one of our Instagram followers a $150 gift certificate to! Click HERE to see how to enter our giveaway! Good luck!
