Living as a breathing human under capitalism can be confusing and emotionally taxing on multiple fronts. On one hand, you want nice things, on the other hand, you have a lurking knowledge that most consumption is bad for global human rights. So, we’re excited one of our favorite indie designers is donating proceeds to the ACLU. This feels like a marriage of all things good and well.

The equally stylish and playful NYC-based clothing label Samantha Pleet, which has previously provided Tavi Gevinson with dresses that look like ’90s screensaver patterns, has now decided to take a stand and donate a portion of proceeds to the American Civil Liberties Union.

We’d be lying if we denied that we’re grateful to have another excuse to buy more clothing guilt-free.

Samantha shared her reasoning behind the new pledges towards the ACLU in an email to HelloGiggles. She said:

Recognizing the urgency of our current political state, Samantha went on to admit that normally the brand isn’t political, but the current situation is not normal.

You can peek the clothing directly on the Samantha Pleet website and see if you’d like to update your wardrobe in a charitable manner.
