With everything going on in the world, we need to strengthen our local communities and be self sufficient NOW more than ever.  Research shows that over 90 percent of small-business owners contribute each year to their communities through volunteering, in-kind contributions, and/or direct cash donations. That means your purchase of a good or service at a small business is a great way to “pay it forward.”

I’ve compiled a list of some (emphasis on SOME – it would have been impossible to name them ALL) of my favorite small businesses and emerging brands I’d love for you to support today and every day with a focus on beauty and fashion.  P.S.: In Her Shoes has been committed to shining light on small businesses + emerging brands since its inception in 2009, so if you don’t find what you’re looking for within this list, feel free to browse the site. I know you’ll find exactly what you need.
