Clothed In Compassion is an online women's clothing boutique offering trendy affordable styles with a greater purpose! As a faith based women's clothing store, we believe just as the Lord clothes us in compassion, love, and mercy, we should show those things to others! That is why 10% of our profits will be donated to the following charitable organizations and Christian ministries:
» THE AMAZIMA SCHOOL: Christ-centered education for children in Uganda
» TN CHILDREN’S HOMES: Foster care homes for children in Tennessee
Additionally, we are so encouraged by companies that work with artisan partners around the world, helping pull them out of poverty and give them access to sell their pieces to the global market. Women are rising above poverty, able to provide for their families, and given dignified work through Mata Traders and 31 Bits. When you purchase from these two brands in particular, your purchase has an even BIGGER impact! Click here to shop Mata Traders, and here to shop 31 Bits!

Hey Ya’ll! We are so glad you’ve stopped by our little shop on the internet! We are two educators of little minds who also happen to be a Mother-Daughter duo. As a teacher (Ashley) and Preschool Director (Elaine), we see the importance of education, encouragement, and love in the lives of children as they grow up. James 1:27 says this;
Religion that our God and Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
What a blessing it is to be able to help “the least of these.” That is why we decided to start Clothed in Compassion. Not only to provide YOU with cute clothes that are ethically sourced, but to provide children in need with a a Christ-centered education, basic necessities, and to support loving foster care homes here in TN. We are so thankful that through the work of the teachers and staff at the Amazima school and TBCH, children are given hope for a better future and shown that they are chosen, holy, and dearly loved by their Savior. Your purchase from us at CC Boutique will have a local and global impact and point these sweet kiddos back to Jesus! #FashionForGood
Hey friend! My name is Ashley Sams, and I am a 4th grade teacher in Murfreesboro, TN. I have a passion for teaching & loving the next generation, serving and teaching fitness classes at my church, and spending time with the people I love. I also have a deep love for Mexican food, Netflixing (Friends + Gilmore Girls + Hart of Dixie are my go-to’s!) and all things Disney! Over the past few years God has given me such a passion to utilize social media as a mission field to spread the hope and love found only in Jesus, and for years have prayed through what that might look like. Each day when we log into Facebook or scroll through Instagram, we enter a battlefield of comparison and often leave feeling discouraged and insecure. It is my hope that this little shop on the internet would be more than just about filling your closet with cute clothes. The purpose of Clothed In Compassion is to remind you of who you are in Christ, bring hope to children in need, and provide products that point back to Jesus. My roles here at CC Boutique include: marketing, managing all social media pages, researching brands, and selecting the clothes.

Elaine has been the Weekday Preschool Director at Northside Baptist Church in Murfreesboro since 2008. However, before beginning her career at Northside, she was a women’s clothing boutique manager for several years before leaving the industry to be a stay at home mom. Elaine loves having the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with preschoolers and their families, going yardsaling and to the farmers market with her Mom, and spending time with family. Elaine is in charge of fulfilling orders, finances, and customer service for Clothed in Compassion.
After watching the film The True Cost a few years ago, my eyes were opened to the horrors of the fashion industry. Worldwide, there are roughly 40 million garmet factory workers who work in sweatshops. The majority of whom make less than $3 per day. All over the world, women and children are forced to work in extremely unsafe, unfair conditions where they are mistreated, work long hours, and make next to nothing. This is why it is so important to me that we only purchase clothing from brands who are made in the USA, or are an ethical clothing business. In the last 50 years, America went from producing 95% of our own clothing, to only 3%. We love all of the brands listed below and know you will to!
Here are the brands of clothing currently in the shop- all made in the USA ethically. :)
