Silk, leather, pearls - whatever you're into, there's a #vegan version to love. Style details in bio 👆💚

Quick reminder .... just breathe .... style details in bio 👆💚

In a world of violence and division, what we say, what we do, and what we wear can all be used to bring about greater peace.

In our thoughts, our words, and our actions, let's choose love ❤️

Bead & Reel is not for everyone. It is a space for lofty ideals blended with honest realities, not a space for absolute truths. It is a space for creators, not a space for critics. It is a space for building something together, not a space for tearing each other down. It is a space for solutions, not a space for indignation. It is a safe space, a space for trials, for errors, and for growth as an industry, not a space for platitudes. It is a space for integrity - always - but never a space for perfection. If this sounds like the right space for you, then welcome to the community 🤝

It's so exciting to hear all the positive feedback on our #plasticfree beauty collection. It's one thing to carry it, it's another to realize so many of you truly care about these little details 💕📷: @vegan.mind

A little sneak peek at today's photoshoot. LOTS of new things coming to @beadandreel this month, featuring the new Northwest model: me 😘 📷: @thepnwvegans

In case you though #organic was only for like, kale and socks | 📷: @sarah.kuehl 👩🏾: @saranuru 💄: @lisa.scharff stylist: @lesleysevriens

Our food choices are emotional, and powerful in shaping our relationships with our selves and those around us. This week #OnTheBlog are 2 vegan love food recipes, featuring @nutcaseveganmeats and some ingredients used for bringing a little extra love magic into your life ✨📷: @sica_schmitz

What can you do today, just for yourself? Some ideas: yoga, meditation, a solo walk, a bath, an amazing meal, an amazing book, or a nap.

Just a suggestion ✨

In case you didn't know: Bead & Reel is a one woman business (that woman is me, @sica_schmitz). Often people mistakenly think this a big corporation or that I have teams of people managing the complex details of this company and industry (and I'm flattered), but I'm just one person, trying to make our one world better in the small ways that I can. It seems like no matter what I do or say, every day there is someone contacting me to tell me that I'm wrong and/or not good enough and/or how they will never shop with me because I am or am not doing something that someone else won't shop with me if I do the opposite. I can't win, so I stick to my values and make the best choices I can. Being an entrepreneur is already so challenging, and I would love to ask that you caring, passionate advocates show more grace, more support, and more understanding, for all of us working so hard in the sustainable fashion community. Saving the world is a team effort, not a competition 💚

About

About

bead & reel an ethical boutique: style that is thoughtful to people.. animals.. & the world // los angeles + online http://www.beadandreel.com

Sica Schmitz founded Bead & Reel based on her own tireless search for ethical fashion. Even as a Hollywood Costume Designer she had a hard time finding beautiful clothing that met with her vegan and humanitarian values, so she decided to create the store she wanted to shop at by bringing together like-minded brands for easy ethical one-stop shopping.

Along with being a frequent speaker, writer, and sustainable stylist, she is also the Fashion Editor for Vilda Magazine, team member of EcoSessions LA, and board member for Fair Trade LA. She is passionate voice on intersectional feminism and a compassionate leader in helping women create more loving stories about themselves through their closets.

She lives in Los Angeles and loves cats, vegan donuts, and Ndotto, her orphan elephant at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya.
