PRIDE– a feeling of honor and self-respect, a sense of personal worth. Satisfaction derived from one’s own personal achievements, successes, or to those ones is closely related with or associated to.
Sadly, this past week marks the 5th year anniversary of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting. Where 49 people were killed and 53 others were wounded. As a Floridian, this horrific act of violence really hit home with me. We must never forget the hate, pain, and crimes inflicted on those who choose to live as their true authentic selves.❤️💛💚
This week I’d like to continue to honor our LGBTQIA+ community by highlighting products that are both fun and proud while celebrating Pride month.
Turnlock Clutch 20 With Rainbow Quilting $425
It’s official, this is my new favorite bag! Inspired by and designed as part of the “Coach Originals Collection.” Because some styles are just too good to leave in the archives. Also available in this year’s Pride collection are; totes, apparel, and footwear.

All with the understanding for connection and safe spaces being vital for LGBTQIA + youth. coach.com

Celebrating Women-Owned Businesses
The Bliss; Pride Wireless Bralette $50
Harper Wilde is a female-founded company that began out of pure frustration. Jenna Kenner and Jane Fisher noticed when it comes to women’s undergarments and intimates, most of the industry is marketed towards men or overly hyper-sexualized. So they decided to start their own company.
Harper Wilde began with the objective, “to take the B.S out of bra shopping.” This year in honor of Pride Month, 15% of the proceeds from The Bliss Pride bralette will go towards The Trevor Project. A National organization that provides intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth. harperwilde.com
