Fashion Brand Name for your Bucket List and Small Brands I’m Spotlighting

I’m always shopping for two things: pieces from my fashion brand names bucket list and small brands that make a big impact on my wardrobe potential. Here are some of my recent finds that are worthy of your wardrobe too. I recently did a little destination shopping at the largest luxury brand outlets in California to shop for some of my favorite bucket list brands. Below you’ll find a round-up of some Gucci pieces I have had for a long time and still recommend. As an independent stylist and fashion blogger new brands sometimes seek my attention. I’ve recently discovered a few small brands worth the spotlight. I’ve included my favorites right now in this post. As a subscriber, you’ll always get a recent roundup of the best high-low brand mix.
