DID YOU SHOP SMALL ON SMALL BIZ SATURDAY?  

If you were out shopping this holiday weekend, I hope you were able to #ShopSmall and support small businesses in your community.  When your shopping for things on your holiday list, remember that even if things cost a few more dollars are small boutiques, dollars spent at independent stores are shown to stay in your community much more than those spent at big box stores. 

There are great shops in every town and city that are run by hard working men and women - living their dream by creating that one of a kind shopping experience you can only find right there!  

Every category from Chocolate to Chukka boots are usually just around the corner.  If you don't live in a town with much retail happening - then let your fingers do the walking on-line, as many small shops have BIG online stores. American Express created the program to support their clients that accept Amex and have a great search tool on the website - SHOP SMALL (click to search your town).

Don't think you missed it if Saturday came and went and you didn't #SHOPSMALL - keep these stores in mind this entire holiday season - or actually ALL THE TIME.

CAPED CRUSADERS FROM ITALY TO BEYOND RUNWAYS!

SALVATORE FERRAGAMO DOUBLE FACE WOOL CASHMERE CAPE WITH LAZER CUT ZIG ZAG DETAILING AND GOLD ZIPPER - APPROX $3,400.00 - BULGARI HANDBAGAND WATCH - PHOTO CR: NORTHPARK SHOPPING CENTER - DALLAS, TXGUCCI FALL 2016 "TROMPE L'OEIL" GREEN CAPE - $3,600.00 - PH CREDIT: GUCCI One of the biggest trends in box-office success over the last 10 years has been the ever increasing presence of Superheroes.BALENCIAGA WOOL AND CASHMERE PONCHO WITH FRINGE - $1,265.00  In more franchises than I can list, rival studios and comic book camps have empowered women and men that fly, bolt, and run across the universe.   While capes are nothing new to the fashion world, I can't help but think the recent trend on luxury runways has been influenced by all these "super" ladies flying faster than a speeding bullet.   Fall 2016 was no exception.   Ferragamo and Gucci were two that owned the runway with dramatic capes.   If Little Red Riding Hood had a budget - you know she'd be wrapped in one of these.  

Balenciaga went for a more traditional Poncho ala the #TruckerChic look they have going on.  All these looks are in stores now... but hurry - with the temps finally feeling like Fall - they are selling fastCLICK IMAGES TO LEARN MORE.

SALVATORE FERRAGAMO RED DOUBLE FACE WOOL / CASHMERE CAPE W/ GOLD ZIPPER - FALL 2016 - IF LITTLE RED HAD SERIOUS COINS! - APPROX $3,400.00
