I’m Carly and the founder of HippieandHeart.com. : )
Ever since I was little, I absolutely loved fashion. Growing up in Chicago, one of my favorite times of the year was going back-to-school shopping, which, for me, was a time to create my authentic self through the clothes I wore.
After realizing I could create a career out of my natural passion, I decided to study fashion & journalism in college. During that time, I learned about the devastating consequences the fashion industry has on our planet and the people who manufacture our clothes. I could no longer go shopping without analyzing clothes tags and researching brands’ production methods. After a little research, I found brands and retailers that aligned with my ethics.
Today, I use HippieandHeart.com to promote those brands and retailers making a positive impact. Thanks for stopping by and supporting the incredible people behind the brands featured here!
With a lot of heart,
