Admittedly, we’re equal opportunity shoppers; one day we might sniff out the bargains our favorite fast fashion brands have to offer, and the next we’re carefully curating our wardrobe with cool, indie finds. We’re in the mood for the latter today, considering that it’s Small Business Saturday, an annual date dedicated to supporting mom-and-pop eateries, local shops, emerging brands, and other small businesses. Since there’s still so much holiday shopping to do (yes we’re still going, even after yesterday’s Black Friday madness), we’re taking the day to peruse a few of our favorite online retailers who specialize in offering clothing, accessories, beauty products, and more by up-and-coming and under-the-radar makers. See our list below, and be sure to visit the sites to check out any ongoing holiday offers so you can save and shop more mindfully today. A total win-win.
With a cool combo of hand-selected vintage pieces, indie labels like Nude Label and ARE Studio, and clothing by house brand OR, Mixed Business specializes in stylish finds for minimalist, modern women.
Seven-free nail polish by J. Hannah, jewelry by Faris, and sunglasses by Ahlem are just a few coveted items by up-and-coming brands that you can shop on LCD's edgy-cool site.
