Small Black Owned Businesses to Support

Instagram is the new Yellow Pages. With the right hashtag, you can find anything you want, including nifty young entrepreneurs who’re just trying to make a name for themselves. So let me help anyway I can!

Because Christmas is right around the corner, and I like to share, I thought I’d shoutout a few small businesses I personally follow on Instagram. Check out their websites and look at their products! I’m sure you’ll find a Christmas gift idea or two.

    I LOVE a gorgeous statement necklace, and since fashion jewelry has always been in, you should definitely head on over to Shop Swank + Debonair. They have a variety of styles, but I’m head over heels in love with their Bohemian Rhapsody necklaces, which will run you about $35. They definitely turn drab into… well, debonair!

    Clothes. Clothes. Clothes! I ran out of closet space months ago, but that never stops me from looking. Pretty Lane Apparel was launched this year, so it’s still fairly new. What’s so wonderful about this particular line of apparel? Well what stuck out to me was the fact that each month proceeds from sales are donated to an individual currently battling a disease. So you get to be cute AND give back simultaneously. I’d call that a win-win.

    Shade Dolls is another startup launched this year! 2015 seems to have been a great year for ambitious entrepreneurs. Nevertheless, who can go without shades? You need a classy pair, a sexy pair, a professional pair, you get the hint. And Shade Dolls has them all. Stay stylish with your unique pair of frames.
