We haven’t had to worry about WHAT TO WEAR for weeks, and we’re all having withdrawals. We’ll be putting on real clothes to venture out of the house, face mask applied, soon though, and we’ve been doing just a bit of fashion reconnaissance for when that finally happens.
To get the scoop, we reached out to boutiques and stylists from the
initiative to give us FASHION FORWARD CLT the one item that they recommend adding to your closet this summer. Purchasing one of these picks has a bit more meaning this season, since most boutiques participating in Fashion Forward are making a donation to a local Charlotte charity. Read more about here. the story behind Fashion Forward CLT
Keeping a CLT small business running and contributing to your community ~ that sounds like a feel-good dose of retail therapy to us!
