Conscious & Chic

Kathleen Elie


Kathleen but most people call me Kat!

I was born in Montreal, lived in the Netherlands (Europe) and now live in the United States.

I’m the baby of a family of 4 children, the only girl! I have 11 nieces and nephews that I love to pieces! They’re my obsession.

Favorite color… Red honey! Red!!! The color of passion! Yellow is a close contender though!


“I am only one, but I am one. I can’t do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will.” – Edward Everett Hale

“Those who bring the sunshine into the life of others cannot keep it from themselves.” – J.M. Barrie


If you have something to share don’t keep it to yourself! That would be really selfish! Wink, wink!

 Live out your purpose unapologetically. You are unique and that’s your gift to the world.

Don’t follow trends, dress to compliment your body and work it!

Make sure you have a kind heart and brains to go along with it! Nothing is uglier than a beautiful person with a nasty attitude!

If you buy something you actually don’t need, don’t be too proud to return it to the store once you get back to your senses.

I can’t believe I started blogging about sustainable fashion in 2009 (link to my humble Blogspot blog)before there was anything sustainable to blog about. I just knew in my heart of hearts that something had to change and am so happy to see how far we’ve come!
