    I love that you support small businesses as well! I have an entrepreneurial mindset (hoping to own my own business in the future), so I definitely realize what buying small can do for a company. And I'm in love with KMSS!

    I love this post for celebrating smaller businesses 🙂 Kiss my Southern Sass sounds like such a fun brand and if nothing else it'll help me channel my inner Southern Belle (I swear I was born in the wrong country!!)Jessica | Jessica Grace

    Oh so nice! I haven't heard of any of these small businesses 🙂 They all sound so wonderful, I don't own any monogrammed items! I love to buy clothes from a small boutique in Montreal– their dresses fit my short stature perfectly!Alessandra | blog.pumpup.com

    I love shopping small because there are so, so many amazing businesses, designers, companies, inventors etc out there that don't always get enough recognition, or they make super awesome products so hello why not! I've heard of a few on your list (KMSS and Purple Periodot) but can't wait to check out the others!xoxo,MeghanSouthern Belle Secrets

    I want to shop smaller boutiques more often-it's exciting to find pieces that not everyone has and it feels right to support small businesses.

    I always believe in shopping small and I actually work for a small jewelry company that is handmade (taudrey jewelry) so I completely appreciate, respect and support small businesses more than anything! LaurenThe Fashionista's Diary

    I couldn't agree more! Small businesses always have unique items, and I love supporting their owners! My sister in law has an Etsy shop, and I'm constantly telling her that her items are soo much better and more unique than the chains 🙂

    I love shopping small! It's so much fun to be able to wear a piece that when someone asks where you bought it from, you can reply "oh I got it from the cutest little shop."
