We’re back for part two. Is your wallet ready?

Because it’s going to be put to work.

You know we love to shop local (hi, we sell local gift cards if this is your first time here), and we’ve shared the benefits of shopping local with you a million times. You can read here if you want the scoop.

So today, we’re sharing even more of our top local boutiques where you can snag some of your favorite high-end designers and beauty brands.

RMS BEAUTY

RMS Beauty is the natural-product-obsessed woman’s secret to long-term beauty. Spoiler alert: You don’t need chemicals to stay looking young. But RMS Beauty doesn’t stop at organic, non-toxic ingredients — the products are also full of healing nutrients that work with (not on) your skin to promote hydration, softness, and luminosity. One of our favorites is the lip2cheek balm that can be used as both a tinted lip balm and a cream blush.

ELIZABETH AND JAMES

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen may have gotten their start on television, but we can all agree that they really found their footing as fashion moguls. Elizabeth and James’ namesakes are the twins’ younger siblings, and the brand was built upon the notion of combining the two complementary personalities into one cohesive aesthetic. Elizabeth defines uptown sophistication, while James is all about downtown edge and masculine tailoring. The brand has mastered womenswear, eyewear, handbags, and jewelry, and it’s all so thoughtfully designed. Peep the Fingers Crossed ring… So clever.

CITIZENS OF HUMANITY

The masters of denim. CITIZENS of HUMANITY was founded by Jerome Dahan in 2003, who was the first to bring the concept of luxury designer denim to the high-end marketplace. The brand was built on a love and appreciation for denim and has succeeded in creating the perfect blue jean, from classic flared shapes to modern boyfriend fits. And yes — they’re all somehow the perfect shade of blue. And while we do have the black, grey, and white jeans as well, we all know how hard it is to find THAT blue color. Seriously perfect.

Also known as the bags you been trying to purchase for months now but are always sold out… We’re officially dubbing the Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag the bag of the season. The Italian-made bags are fabricated from the highest-quality leather and are available in colors that elevate the playful bag shapes to an unmatched level of contemporary sophistication. The duo behind the brand also does shoes, but we suggest waiting until payday to check those out.

FREE PEOPLE

Free People is the middle child of the Anthro-Urban sibling sandwich, but it’s also secretly our favorite in the family. The brand is unapologetically boho, and caters to girls with varying personal styles, from tomboy, to romantic, to tough, feminine, or all of them combined (which is how most of us tend to mix and match). It’s a total lifestyle brand, encompassing contemporary clothing, accessories, intimates, and home products, but it’s the shoes we decided to show you a glimpse of. We’re sure we don’t need to explain why.
