I hope you are all recovering from the holiday break and the food comas. I tried my best not to shop any huge retailers this sale week. Instead, I spent my money with small businesses and scored a few things I had been eyeing. Target and Walmart did get me for matching holiday pajamas and an air fryer though LOL.
I wanted to share what I bought, to hopefully put some small businesses on your radar for gift-giving inspiration. Everything has shipped and I can’t wait for my items to arrive so I can style them up and produce more awesome content.
This is my second purchase from Shopaholic Merch. I LOVE my tee from her shop, and I couldn’t wait to get a sweatshirt for the colder temps. Sweatshirts like graphic tees can be dressed up or down, and for me are a wardrobe staple. You may know Sammy B. because Beyoncé wore her outfit last year on the gram, but I know her from Project Runway! And I am so happy to support her line and just her Black Girl Magic all around! This tee is not your average tee, I mean look at that statement ruffle. I have my eye on some red “leather” pants from Zara, that I think would look great with this! We all know I love a headwrap! I use them to accessorize my looks, whether I am having a bad hair day or not. I just think it adds a sense of regalness to any look. EE Styles reached out to me earlier this year via Instagram and we have been connected ever since. I jumped at the chance to support during her Cyber Monday Sale. She has really great Ankara prints and not to mention they are super affordable! Lastly, I know she is not a small business, but I couldn’t resist getting a tee from Beyoncé’s shop for the holidays. The OTR II show was one of the best I’ve seen and why not have a piece of memorabilia to wear from the collection. I don’t think it will be around forever. This shop is the perfect place to shop for the Beyhive members of your family! I got this tee specifially to wear with my Pine Green Jordan One kicks! What did you all score this holiday sale weekend?
When you support small business, you’re supporting a dream.
Thanks so much for reading and stay chic!
