People are pushovers for clothes with cheeky sayings and cute graphics made from 100% certified organic. Especially for kids.
The Simply Chickie Creator, Gwendolyn, is a cancer survivor – a life event that inspires her every day to make people laugh. “We want to make everyone laugh because life is funny,” she says.
Funny, indeed. One day, Gwen leaves her boyfriend, finds out she’s pregnant and gets diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Well, not in one day, but one day after another. At the age of 40 she says, life itself decided to slow her down. “I thought a lot about how my body felt, and how it got to feeling that way—what I put in my body and eventually what I put on my body. I paid attention to smells and food and everything coming in contact with my mouth and my skin. I paid attention to labels and discovered that the lovely soft cotton clothing I enjoyed hid a dirty secret. The cotton crop is one of the most polluting crops grown.”
Soon after her cancer was treated successfully and her daughter Elizabeth was born, Gwen became a kids clothing entrepreneur and prints her funny thoughts on kids clothes. Simply Chickie clothing can be found online, Wholefoods in Rhode Island and boutiques around the country.
