First things first, if you follow me on instagram then you know that these pictures are old + I am sporting a new royal blue weave…but we will discuss that tomorrow.
These pictures are from a recent trip to Los Angeles with my family. When I was editing these pictures I started to think about just where this outfit came from + nearly everything I am wearing was made in my home state, California. While styling an outfit with local fashion will cost you more, the positive benefits are endless.
I was born in Santa Barbara and after several moves up + down the cost I have settled in San Francisco. While my love for all things SF Made (insert shameless plug for Les Méchantes) is strong, I am pleased to report that apparel is being manufactured all over the United States, not just in California and these days we can all shop local in some capacity.
Do you shop local?
What I Wore:
Dress: Les Méchantes, The Eagle Dress
Cape: Les Méchantes, The Heather 3 Cape
Shoes: The Blonde Salad x Steve Madden, TDallas Sandal
Sunglasses: Karen Walker, Betsy
I love shopping local and have recently discovered some great Cali brands (JOA comes to mind). I love your dress and have my eye on a cape or maritime jacket on your website!
