📣The strength of a community during devastating times is a very incredible thing to witness. We see unity in the purest form, as individuals are able to help each other pick up the pieces with open arms and leave politics and prejudice behind. We empathize, humanize, and see one another just as human beings. . This is exactly what we’re seeing here in California as the fires start to die down after a long, rough week. We are here to commend all those who stood up and gave back with love and generosity. YOU are the strength in our sisterhood! Today we again will be donating 10% of our sales to victims of the fire. We also have a new blog post up that features some fellow female owned businesses giving back to the communities affected by the fires. Head to dazeyla.com to hear about these amazing women and see what you can do to help ❤️ #californiafires #woolseyfire #campfire #giveback #dazeycommunity #femaleowned #socialentrepreneurship

HI 👋 Been seeing some people post intros on their page for newer followers and I found it such a fun way to get to know them 😊 So for those that don’t know I’m @danidazey, the owner and graphic designer behind Dazey. I stared Dazey in 2016 after a long career in t-shirt design working full-time for many corporate companies including Urban Outfitters, Macy’s, Anthropologie, and Torrid to name a few. On the side I was freelancing for SO many small tee brands and finally built up the courage start my own 👊 I wanted to finally own my own artwork and design things that I not only liked, but stood for something bigger 🙌 I’m passionate about female empowerment and it’s become my life’s mission through Dazey. I was able to build my brand off of social media by sharing my small biz journey very transparently. At the beginning I did everything myself, the artwork (still do 😉), photography, marketing, production, shipping, customer service, and logistics. THANKFULLY we’ve grown into a kick ass team of four including my boyfriend @phillipbutler who does all the back end stuff, @thelittleavocadoshop who handles our customer service and Dazey Lady Shop, and @naohmi who does content creation and runs our blog ❤️ Along my journey I met many other amazing small business babes including @vegetaryn. After noticing the isolation many of us went through working from home Taryn and I decided to start a female-first Co-working space, and my second company @bizbabez was born 🤗 If I’m not working from our downtown space or my Hollywood apartment you can find me at @dazey_desert_house, shown here on this tee ✨ At the beginning is this year I fulfilled a lifetime dream of mine and bought a house! It’s in Palm Springs so we spend about a week every month there and rent it on @airbnb the rest 🌵 Interior design is a big passion of mine and through these two spaces I really got to exercise that muscle and hope to do so more with our newly launched #dazeyden 🛋 Work is basically my life but if I’m not doing that I’m usually exploring LA’s food and drink scene with my little family, aka Phillip and our dog child @the_franklin_pup ❤️ #danidazey #instaintro #dazeyLA

📣 Let’s talk transparently about SLOW FASHION ✨ I constantly see small brands be torn apart and called “classist” for having higher prices and it makes me so sad because I know very well the limitations as a small business trying to do things ethically. I believe making a piece of beautiful, thoughtful, quality clothing is worth saving up for. The fashion industry is the second largest polluting industry and is known for paying garment workers pennies and putting them in hazardous factories in order to drive down prices for the consumer. The ugly truth is if you’re not paying the price, someone is. Making our clothing to order in LA is very expensive and it takes a lot of time. We do all we can to not pass that cost onto our customer by taking small margins and focusing on direct to consumer. We offer payment programs like @afterpay.us. We have an awesome ambassador program where you get discounts and can actually make money by helping us promote. I just hope you consider this next time you choose to shop or slander a small brand. Give us a little grace and patience. Know we’re doing all we can to make our clothing both accessible, sustainable, and ethical. Our resources are extremely limited and we rely heavily on your support. I can assure you our hearts are in the right place and that together we can make a positive impact on our the global market, our planet, and the humans in it ❤️🌎 #slowfashion #whomakesyourclothes #ethicalfashion #madetoorder #madeinLA #smallbatch #sustainablefashion

Stay strong California 💔 Today we will be giving 10% of Dazey proceeds to those effected by the wildfires. So saddened by what is happening in our beautiful state right now and all the humans, animals, and houses in danger. I’m no stranger to the devastation of fires growing up on a socal mountain. As a child I was evacuated multiple times, once for over a month. We would watch the news all day terrified that we lost our home. On a few occasions the news falsely reported that our neighborhood didn’t make it and I remember how crushing it was to think that my childhood home was just gone. Luckily our house narrowly escaped, but I had a lot of friends who lost theirs and it was heartbreaking. If anyone is able to help or give back please do what you can. Animal shelters need help with fosters and donations, our friends at @deityanimalrescue are a great organization. Also my dear friend @aldensteimle, who lost her childhood home last year in the Sonoma Fires, brought back her “Rise from the ashes” tee. 100% of proceeds of the shirt will be given back to the communities effected by the fires. #californiafires #woosleyfire #campfire #malibustrong #strengthinsisterhood

LISTEN UP 📣 Embrace your sisters, not just your CISters ❤️ @victoriassecret just publicly stated they won’t feature trans or plus size women in their famous fashion show because it would “ruin the fantasy” 🤦‍♀️ @tessholliday‘s response captured our feelings perfectly: “As much as I want VS, who’s the biggest lingerie retailer, to embrace plus size and more diverse body types, it's also important to give your time, focus, and money to brands who are actually doing what you want to see. It’s important to be vocal about the brands you do like and what they’re doing right because that’s who should get our money because they actually care about marginalized groups. Always support progressive brands.” 👏 If you want to support inclusive and body positive lingerie companies we suggest our friends at female-owned @solsticeintimates and the amazing @gabifresh‘s new extended size collection with @playfulpromises ❤️ And of course shop Dazey for fun things to wear on top of ya undies 😘✨ This is a snap from our most recent lookbook featuring beautiful trans model @siddiqwahab and miss @angelmydarling 👯‍♀️ #transisbeautiful #everyBODY #representationmatters #intersectionalfeminism #shopsmall #femaleowned #slowfashion #ethicalfashion
