I’ve admired Hackwith Design House ever since I started shopping more ethically last year. Their simple and relaxed clothing made my heart sing, but sadly, their pieces were always just out of my price range. When they launched their Sustain Shop where you could buy sample pieces and secondhand pieces from HDH customers, I was SO excited at the chance of finally owning something from them. I’ve lurked in the Sustain Shop’s shadows, just waiting for the perfect piece to find me.
Luckily for me, I didn’t have to wait all that long for a piece to find me: When they reached out to me in January, I squealed with delight! I was so excited and flattered! I slept on it, and after mulling it over (aka asking myself: Would this partnership bring me joy?), I wholeheartedly accepted to receive one piece from their Spring /Summer 2019 collection in exchange for an Instagram post. I then took a few more days to think about which piece from their collection would complement and/or fill a gap in my wardrobe.
The Button-Up Balloon Pant Jumper won out. Made from a black cotton gauze, I knew this piece would be perfect for the upcoming warm Spring & Summer days. I also knew it’d be perfect layered under cardigans or over thin sweaters and tees for these last few weeks of Winter. The button up front and the balloon pants made this jumpsuit different enough from my other two black jumpsuits that I owned. This jumpsuit also gets extra points for having pockets! The only thing I would change about this jumpsuit would be to add adjustable straps, as they’re too long for my petite frame, and I’m going to have to get them shortened so they don’t fall off my shoulders as I walk. Despite that, I’ve worn this piece 3 times since receiving it so far. It’s been work tested, and it was comfortable enough for a day with my students. I’ve worn it with different cardigans and with sneakers. I wore it here for an easy Sunday morning coffee date with Brandon just before the next rainstorm rolled in.
A LITTLE ABOUT HACKWITH DESIGN HOUSE | They began with the goal of making “long-lasting and versatile clothing that is as unique as its wearer.” All of their clothing is made in the USA in their Minnesota studio, many of which are made to order by their seamstresses to reduce waste. While they were already working hard to be inclusive with their sizing and diversity of models, this new collection emphasized on “size variety and adjustability.” I absolutely adore this collection and cannot wait for the day I can get my hands on more of it via the Sustain Shop!

Thank you HDH for being my first new brand partnership in 2019, and for gifting me this amazing jumpsuit. Like I said in a previous blog post, I’m being very selective in who I partner with moving forward. I am forever grateful that I get to work with brands and have the opportunity to receive items to review and wear. Here’s to less, but better partnerships in 2019!
