Shopping Small: My Favorites!

I do my best to shop small because it's important to support more budding businesses and less major ones.  Throughout the years, I've found some wonderful shops with gorgeous products for your everyday needs.  Today I'm sharing my favorites and I hope you love them as much as I do!

Ebone is a sweet and ridiculously talented dress maker.  Tailored to the ultra-femme and Disney-obsessed (have you seen that Toy Story dress?!), her skirts and dresses are perfect for a day at the park or for some everyday sweetness.  I've already ordered a few of her creations and I can't wait to have a closet full of her dresses (pending infinite income, of course).  She's always open to tweaks on her dresses and she's also willing to make garments to your actual measurements.  I've enjoyed every minute of my communications with her and I'm very proud to be one of her customers.

Talk about ultimate fandom jewelry!  This amazing Australian-based shop features fun and quirky pieces for your everyday needs.  Featuring Sailor Moon, My Little Pony, Adventure Time, Pokemon, and more; these pieces are ridiculously cute and very reasonably priced.  I'm having a hard time picking what I want without going too crazy!

Alixis, the wonderful woman behind Ains & Elke StyleHaus, is obviously incredibly talented.  While she features a lot of dresses and skirts, she also has incredible knit sweaters, menswear, and children's clothing.  If you don't see the exact piece you're looking for, she's ready and willing to do something completely custom for you.  From one mom to another, I have lots of respect and admiration for her!

While Besame has made some big moves this year, it's still very much a small business.  Known for their attention to vintage detail, Besame enhances your beauty with cruelty-free products and comes in the most gorgeous packaging.  I wear Besame every single day and I cannot wait for their Snow White and Agent Carter products to release!

Known for her attention to detail and her vintage bed sheet dresses, Jackie is the queen of all things cute (and creepy)!  She's collaborated with a few very talented and fun artists to create one-of-a-kind pieces that have me swooning!  It's a rare day when I'm not wearing one of Jackie's creations to Disneyland and I'm sure you can see why.  I can't wait to debut a very special set she's made for me over at Disney California Adventure... Stay tuned!

My lovely friend Lisa is the woman behind Color Theory Shop and she has so many cute goodies in there!  From cute and witty enamel pins, lady ties, patches, and vintage clothing and shoes; you're bound to find something you need to add to your shopping cart.  You can also get free US shipping on orders over $40 with the code "FREESHIP"!

What are your favorite small businesses to shop from?  Let me know in the comments below!
