Here in the US we recently had an important and contentious Presidential election. But we as consumers vote every day with our dollars.
I try to #shopsmall and locally when I can, and also to buy second hand as it is a good way to recycle and /or up-cycle. Most second hand shops are small businesses, often owned by women. At a point when large corporations are changing the retail landscape, we can champion small shops, online and in the brick and mortar stores.
I did some polyvore sets and combined them into a shopping inspiration guide, to inspire shopping small, local, and secondhand. Remember that Ebay, and Etsy, while large corporations do support small individual sellers, as does shoptiques.com. You can see from the sets that the look is still festive and, dare I say, Glam.
I hope you like these outfit ideas. The Holidays are fast approaching! It is a great time to shop. We have so many ways to purchase, please remember to support the little guy (gal) as much as you are able!
