This past Thursday I was invited to the Feminine Cartel, a local shopping event "for women who buy the best from creation to closet." I love to shop local when I can, and in this case, it was especially exciting because a few St. Louis retailers got together to feature their businesses for a good cause. A portion of the sales was donated to the relief efforts in Mexico, to help the people of Oaxaca recover and rebuild their communities after the major earthquake last month.

Be U was another retailer that featured leggings from Colombia (above). Although I didn't make any purchases, I hope to in the future. The swirling neon patterns were almost as mesmerizing as fireworks.
Thank you to the four amazing St. Louis women who brought international fashion for an evening of fun. I appreciate the exposure to so much flair and the opportunity to support a good cause, if only a little bit. I hope more events like these will be scheduled soon!
