One of my favorite past times on the internet is online shopping. My budget does not necessarily allow me to buy all my online findings but, it is fun to look at. 2020 has seen this trend of supporting small businesses and I believe that this trend will only continue to grow. What I thought would be fun is to share some small business I currently love and shop at, and hope that others will love them too.
First is a fitness brand called Kickass. They started a couple of years ago. Since their debut, they have launched leggings, sports bras, socks, T-Shirts and, so much more. They also have started to come out with gym equipment like booty bands, a jump rope, and other home gym equipment. Kickass is a lifestyle and athleisure brand both physically and mentally. In my opinion, their leggings can be considered dupes of Lululemon and Athleta. The material is so soft and stretchy. Their apparel is for both working out in or just lounging around the house. Recently, I have been able to become a brand ambassador for the brand. I would not have signed up to become one if I did not genuinely like their products. I also want to say that if you are nervous about the name and them being appropriate to wear. Their logo is a peach and the name Kickass is only on select apparel and accessories. If you’re interested in buying from their website, use my referral link here. And use MEGAN10 for 10% off your purchase. They do not have many reviews on their website. If you have questions in sizing, you can either ask down in the comments or message me on Instagram.
Price Range: $-$$
Next is a small boutique I discovered this past year on Instagram called Mariposa Vintage. They are a small business that is based in L.A. They focus on sustainability and, the clothes they sell are vintage clothes that are refurbished to give them a new sense of style. They have beautiful jewelry and they have also started to release their line of sweatshirts and sweatpants. Their drops for new clothes and restocks usually happen on either Fridays or Saturdays. Now, they are pricy, but they have their reasons. Their clothes are ethically sourced and sustainable. Most of the clothes they find are name brands, like Gucci, Burberry, Chanel, and remember they are a small business, and you are not going to find their products anywhere else. Overall, they are an extremely cute boutique, and they deserve an even larger following than they have. So, if you are unable to afford their products, then give them a like here! It helps so much.
Price Range: $$-$$$
I have decided to split this into two parts so, today is part one and later this week. I will post part two with two more small businesses that you may not have heard of or want to learn more about. If you have any small business finds that you want to share, leave them down in the comments. I am always looking for something new!
Thanks for reading!
