Introducing: Neval – Sustainable Luxury Made in Chicago

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I attended the launch party for Neval,  a Chicago-based sustainable luxury label started by Designer Anadil Johnson. I met Johnson years ago at a fashion event and I’ve been following her on social media ever since. I’ve  been mesmerized watching her incredible journey in creating and launching the line – see for yourself on their instagram page.

Neval, meaning ‘New Village’, ethically sources Jamdani fabric from the Golden Village in Bangladesh.  Jamdani is a special hand-woven technique, still made in the same way as when it was intended for the Royal Mughal family.

The limited edition Monarch collection marries the ancient weaving technique with edgy modern design. Current pieces you can shop include a cool bomber jacket (that is also reversible) and a long skinny scarf, both styles available in a few color ways.

It is important to note that some companies try to use the words ‘green’ or ‘sustainable’ simply as buzz words to attract conscious consumers. Other brands may even donate a portion of proceeds to charity which is a great thing to do. But Neval goes a step further to benefit society in the most impactful way, by providing jobs and paying fair wages to its employees.

I picked up the skinny scarf and recently styled it as a turban for an easy beach look. Below are a few snaps from our day at the lake.

  • A statement blazer is never not a good idea 💥 mine is thrifted but just for YOU ALL this time I sourced quite a few designer resale blazers that are equally amahzing and linked them on the ‘shop’ page of the blog - (in a variety of sizes) enjoy!
  • Just hit publish on a new blog post sharing my Living Room makeover!

Hope you like ❤️ {Link to post in my profile}
  • Happy Mother’s day from me and baby Soph! I’m going to be so sad to leave her nursery when we move - if you want to see a tour check out the link in my profile or search ‘nursery reveal’ on the blog 💕 (p.s. she looks so teeny without hair doesn’t she?) #mothersday
  • IG vs. Reality - house hunting edition. Was trying to take a pic with Sophia by this adorable entry at a house we toured. I ended up bribing her with my bag 😂Swipe to see what the other 373626 pics look like... I always wear slip on shoes and comfortable clothes for home shopping because it’s stressful enough as it is - fun too though 💕{what I’m wearing or similar on the ‘shop’ page of the blog}
  • Been so busy with house hunting and fasting I forgot to say Ramadan Mubarak to all who celebrate! I’m fasting after two years off (first being pregnant, then nursing) so it was scary at first but I’m pleasantly surprised how easy it has been! Not yelling at my kids has probably been the hardest part tbh 😂 Here’s a pic @annieswift snapped of me while our Uber driver patiently waited and watched from outside lol
  • Going out house hunting today! Are you guys into move-in ready homes, fixer uppers you can renovate to your taste, or brand new construction you help design?? I’m leaning towards the fixer upper myself!
  • New new in thanks to @basimmichelle just in time for Ramadan and Eid! 💕 (how gorgeous is the embroidery on the pants 😍) also going to do some much needed Spring cleaning my closet today ~ wish me luck! What are you all up to this weekend??
  • Wondering how late is *too* late to mail out thank you cards...I’ve had a stack signed and sealed (from multiple birthdays) waiting for stamps for longer than I care to admit 🙈 🙈 thoughts???
