Happy Small Business Saturday folks! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Today is a very special day dedicated to supporting small business and I want to encourage you to do just that.

Small business owners have taken a chance, they usually sacrifice a lot and work their a$$es off with no concrete promise it will al work out. For that we celebrate and support you all! I'm currently working on updating Shop & Tell where I feature small businesses I like but in the meantime you can still check out some of the ones I've featured to date.

Some ideas for supporting small businesses include picking up treats from your local bakery, booking dinner at a neighborhood restaurant, buying holiday gifts from small shops/craft fairs in your area or doing one of my favorite things and shopping online via platforms like Etsy and Poshmark

As a special addition to this post I created a clothing measuring guide to help you if you're doing any online shopping this weekend. It's especially handy when buying vintage and custom made pieces. Knowing my measurements has kept my heart, wardrobe and wallet happy since sizing (especially when shopping for vintage pieces) can vary. 

All you need to do is print this sheet, grab your tape measure and get to shopping!
