Our Mission

You Don’t Need More.
You Need More Meaningful.

At Bitter Grace, our greatest mission is to guide you toward authentic self-expression, offering tools that enable you to align your identity with the person you aspire to become. Through our personalized offerings and immersive experiences, you gain the knowledge and confidence to express yourself authentically and effortlessly, allowing this version of you to shine brightly in the world.

We are driven by the following 3 tenants:


Taking care of those who take care of others.

10% of your purchase is donated to Women’s HQ, a local Washington, D.C. organization.

Women’s HQ rebuilds communities where domestic violence and sexual abuse survivors of color reclaim their voice, transform their lives, and disrupt poverty through unique wellness programs, career enhancement efforts, and strategic financial guidance.


The secret to great style is embodying the best version of you and deliberately choosing pieces that align with the person you want to become.

Our mission is to help you gain vital awareness of yourself and provide actionable tools to help rebuild or reinforce that image, whether through a Personalized Styling Experiencee or Inner Elegance Circle events.


A sustainable wardrobe is about wearability and longevity; the ability to leverage clothing for many years no matter the season or occasion.

With our capsule collections, we create and curate timeless, modern, and quality garments made of natural fabrics and plastic-free materials that evolve with you through the years and through every milestone in life.


We are committed to taking steps, big and small, to lessen the impact on our environment. Sustainability and ethical fashion is a long term goal at Bitter Grace and we're always looking for ways to learn more, educate, and do more for our planet's future!

We invest in energy-efficient lighting in our space.

We use LED lights to conserve energy and UV lighting to sanitize our garments and fitting rooms.

We believe mass-production leads to mass-consumption.

We produce low stock quantities in order to stay within a consumption pattern that lessens our impact on the environment.

80% of our inventory is transitional for all seasons.

Our ethos is quality over quantity.

We care about quality materials and garments with a long lifespan. Investing in timeless styles reduces the likelihood that your garments end up in a landfill.

We limit the use of plastic in our space.

Our bamboo shopping bags are biodegradable. We also offer reusable tote bags as an alternative.

We want to create a circular economy wherever possible.

We encourage our customers to return their empty candle jars to us so that we can reuse them to make new candles.


We aim to be transparent about our process and practices with our community.

Every garment is intentionally developed and created with our values and sustainable promise in mind.


The Choices We Make Today, has an Impact on Ourselves and Our Planet.
