{Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those 
sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your 
children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.}
- Matthew 23:37


Being a southern gal with a heart for vintage, I am beyond thrilled to introduce The Hen Collection, my personal brand, and my first pair of handmade jeans to y'all! For a bit of explanation about the design, the back pocket showcases the recognizable feature of my logo, the hen. With such a prominent figure, a subtle peach thread color was chosen. Additionally, lace was added on the back pockets and the front waistband to modernize, yet keep with the positioning of my southern, vintage, brand. For camouflaging purposes, a high-waisted silhouette in a dark wash with subtle distressing was chosen. Also, a button-fly, as well as a zipper were both incorporated as a disguising mechanism to flatter a woman’s stomach.

Additionally, this product is made of 100% cotton, bought from a fabric outlet in Fancy Gap, Virginia. 


{She opens her hand to the poor and reaches out her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet.} 
- Proverbs 31:20-21

"It started with a belief that lingerie should be about the woman who wears it...and that it should make her feel good about herself."

Ladies. If you've been reading for a while or know me personally, you know that my passion in life is to empower women through encouragement, hope, community, and business. Naja, a premium lingerie and swimwear company, is doing just this and I am SO in love. Featured on Shark Tank for their beautiful products, this young company has launched a new initiative called Underwear for Hope where women are taught to sew and single mothers are given homes in Colombia. Additionally, a percentage of every purchase supports their entrepreneurial sewing program through the Golondrinas Foundation in Colombia.

Not only does Naja seek to empower impoverished women, but also their target customers (that's you!). Each pair of these adorable underwear have an inspirational quote on the inside and for an added touch, the bras feature beautiful textiles that take ques from superhero prints and Mexican folklore, making them just as unique on the inside.

A feel-good product just for you that empowers other women...what better reason to buy yourself a new pair of knickers or bralette combo?! Check out the Naja website for more beautiful designs and to learn more about their eco-friendly products made of pet recycled plastic bottle material. I know I can't wait to try out one of these little indulgences.
