I don’t know how it happened, but Christmas is less than two weeks away!

We are busy making last minute preparations for our holiday travels – two weeks in Pittsburgh with extended family. Somehow when you have kids you suddenly need to spend a week planning and packing instead of waiting until the night before. Sippy cups, blankets, bottles, lovies, plane snacks, books, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.! It’s our first time flying with both kids, so of course I’m super nervous. But once we make it through that hurdle, it’s two weeks of sitting by the fire drinking wine while the grandparents watch the kiddos!

To get the holiday spirit brewing while I count down the days to relax city, I have a GIVEAWAY for you, my dear readers! I present to you:

The Three Days of Ethical Christmas Giveaway!

Over the next three days I will be giving away $50 gift cards to three different ethical brands!


Hack with Design House Ethical Christmas Giveaway | curatedcassi.com

Hackwith Design House makes high end minimalist garments from sustainable textiles and all designs are handmade in the USA. Hackwith designs their garments to flatter diverse body types – they have a plus size line – and their pieces are in sleek neutrals that would fit well into a capsule wardrobe.

A few of my favorites from their collection:

Reversible Wrap Top (top left above) // This top is made from hemp, silk and organic cotton, giving it a thumbs up on the sustainability scale. I love that it can be worn with the v-neck in front or back. A great piece to add variety to a limited capsule wardrobe.

Knotted Sweater (top right above) // I’ve been knotting a lot of my shirts lately, so I like that this sweater has side slits to make knotting easy. This cropped length sweater would be perfect to dress up a pair of high waisted denim for a holiday gathering. I’m in the market for a black sweater for my winter capsule wardrobe and I’m considering this one.

Easy Tapered Pant (bottom left above) // So many of the pants in my wardrobe are skinny or slim fit and I am looking to branch out with some different fits for a more interesting silhouette. This tapered pant would look great with a half tucked t-shirt for a casual look or a cropped blouse for something a little dressier.

Cropped Drawstring Top (bottom right above) // This top in light auburn is the definite winner of Hackwith’s collection for me. I’m a sucker for that hue and actually need to replace a very similar shirt that’s in my closet right now. The keyhole neckline and drawstring neck closure give some added character to the minimalist design.

I hope you can find something that you love in Hackwith’s collection!
