Small Business Saturday®

I love that San Francisco has so many awesome small shops. One of my favorites is Little Paper Planes – they curate the best stuff at the spot on Valencia Street. I love supporting local businesses so one of my favorite shopping days is Small Business Saturday. It happens each year between Black Friday and Cyber Monday and is a great way to give a little boost to your neighborhood economy. This year, small businesses are encouraged to partner up with local Etsy sellers by hosting trunk shows on 11/29. This partnership will give local artisans and designers the chance to share their products in a retail setting and can also provide the shops with more foot traffic and the chance to showcase more diverse products. Every small business who participates will receive a Trunk Show Kit* to assist with the cost of supplies. Little Paper Planes is participating and I can’t wait to see the designers they’ll be featuring! If you’re interested in getting involved, get more information here!

3 Party Outfits from Golden Tote

Fall is the best for dressing. We’ve been trying out the Golden Tote service for a while and really love the concept: each month, you can purchase a tote filled with a mix of items you pick and items that the Golden Tote  stylists choose for you (based on your style profile.) It’s a great way to try new items and stay out of that I-have-nothing-to-wear rut. Here are some of our favorites for your party-going inspiration:  Back Panel Jumpsuit, Nordic Shrug and Rustic Cape. They’re all versatile and perfect for layering in cooler weather. Do you have any fun parties coming up?
