Curves! Natural hair! Women who actually look like me and my friends!
This is not what normally flashes across my mind when I see fashion advertising, but it’s exactly what I thought when I first saw ads for Ashwood West, a North Dakota-based women’s clothing boutique. It’s refreshing to see a retailer’s products reflect a basic truth; Gorgeous women come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
This cool online boutique carries sizes XS-3X. The shop’s section is curated for women who want affordable, versatile clothing that works for their lives. There are some great statement pieces here, as well as lots of mix-and-match basics that work for the office and for a night out.
Everything in the Ashwood West online showroom is made in the U.S.A. And Ashwood West also sources products from a number of “give back” companies that help slavery survivors make a living, provide sustainable water to residents around the world and meals to kids in need.
Ashwood West is owned and operated by NDSU fashion graduate Marrah Ferrebee. I think it’s great when I can support a local business, contribute worthy causes and promote inclusive, affordable fashion at the same time.
If you want to try out the Ashwood West look for yourself, you’re in luck! This week, the boutique is giving away a $50 gift code for use at ashwoodwest.com. You can use it to treat yourself to something nice or to make a lady in your life smile.
