No, I'm not talking about charity. Or a bra. I'm talking about supporting local talent. What do I want for Christmas this year? I want something from a local designer/business. I've met them, interviewed them, friended them on facebook, and gushed about how great their stuff is. But I have yet to actually own anything from any of the great designers I speak of. I think it's time to start walking the talk.
And did I mention that every item (except for #1) is on sale until Friday? Not only am I providing you with a fabulous shopping guide, but I'm also giving you a chance to get me something on sale. What's better than that?
1. Silver High Waisted Skirt from Another Word For Pink (by Breeyn McCarney). I am in love with this skirt. I love Breeyn's work in general, but I especially love how she has this diffusion line for normal folk like me to afford her beautiful work. A silver skirt? Now that's a head-turner.
2. Red Mushroom Pouch by Demu. Okay, I'll accept the less expensive version without the spikes, but really, the spikes are really what give the pouch its special edge (literally!). C'mon, I wanna be badass!
3 4 5 6 7. MAFIA jewellery. I've had my eye on their spunky pieces for a while now. Especially the BANG necklace- it was the first piece I fell in love with. But I'm totally a fan of vintage phones and gramophones too.
Regardless if you've picked up a little something for me on this list (but you should've), I've picked up a little something for people that I can now cross off my "To shop for" list. Hourrah! Happy shopping!
