Shop Small Business Saturday

Hey everyone! I know how trying these times can be right now for all of us, so I figured I would put together an uplifting and helpful #shopsmallbusiness shopping list here on my blog for you all to reference for all your holiday shopping this year!


I know I will for sure be doing all of my holiday shopping at small businesses this year.

And why you might ask or wonder......?

Well, as an independent consultant with #arbonne, I know how wonderful it feels when someone shops from my small business, and supports my dreams. I know the hard work that it takes to build a brand and business, and the sacrifices one must make to build their dream brand or business. It's tough but beyond rewarding!


So in honor of Shop Small Business Saturday, I figured I would share these brands that I absolutely adore to help spread some holiday love and support from one small business owner to another.



SMALL BUSINESS CLOTHING BRANDS


@PanerosClothing

Not only is this brand SUSTAINABLE, but they have some of the most beautiful pieces I've ever seen! They are comfy, impeccably made to last, and styles you can pull out of your wardrobe seasons and years later and they will still be IN STYLE!

I had the pleasure of meeting the owner Lauren, and we chatted all about her beautiful brand, and everything that inspires her when creating new pieces. If you'd like to learn more about this small business, watch the video below! You'll feel even more connected to her after watching it, PLUS you'll learn so so much about sustainable shopping and the importance of it!

@ShopRabot

Talk about cool girl CHIC!!! This brand holds a special place in my heart! They create such beautiful pieces that take statement to a whole new level! Every piece they make is sourced from deadstock fabrics, so each piece is so so special! I dropped a few of my current favorite pieces below, and linked some previous pieces I styled in the past from this beautiful brand!













As a special little thank you from Shop Rabot and me for supporting their female-owned small business, they gave me a little promo code to share with you all!

@Haliteclothing

I love this shop so so much!! They have the cutest tops, and accessories ( For a reference look to the left and below for some stuff I've styled in the past from them )!


Fun Fact: Halite Clothing's #1 concern of fast fashion, is the clothing waste being produced. Their way of contributing to this issue is to:

  1. Always include a ‘Vintage/Pre-Loved’ section to my website, giving customers an option to shop second-hand and;

  2. Only order small quantities from suppliers to meet customer demand - reducing unwanted stock.




Every order is also packaged up using satchels from The Better Packaging Co.


They are also made from sustainably sourced plants, and are compostable! SO COOL!!! So, you can throw them away with your scraps and garden waste to feed the worms. I mean soo cool right!!
