As some of you may recall, earlier this Summer my hometown of Oklahoma City, specifically Moore, was devastated by one of the worst tornados in history. I watched from over 1,500 miles away as the grief-stricken residents mourned their lost loved ones and tried to pick up the pieces. Witnessing a tragedy like this, especially one that hits so close to home, opens up your eyes to the immense needs of those affected by natural disaster. Further, it inspires you to want to do something about it. 

When I recently had the opportunity to try out Boutiika and shop some of my favorite San Francisco boutiques, I was impressed by their focus on community and immediately drawn to philanthropic retailer, Be Good Clothing, and their Threads for Thought line. Boutiika works to highlight and support local brick and mortar boutiques (right now in San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, and Austin) by offering their latest stock on their website. Shoppers can go on the Boutiika site to see what’s in at each boutique. Then, they can either:
1.) Have an item held in store for them to later go in and try on

-or-

 2.) Purchase on the spot and have it delivered to them with same day DASH delivery

So, after perusing all of Be Good’s amazing pieces, I settled on this Threads for Thought dress. While I couldn’t pass up the season-less maxi dress, what was most important to me was Thread for Thought’s support of the International Rescue Committee. The IRC’s mission is to rebuild the lives of the many people affected by the world’s worst humanitarian crises, including natural disasters. Thanks to Boutiika, Be Good, and Threads for Thought, I feel like I am able to support my hometown from afar while also supporting my new local community. Now, THIS is fashion you can feel good about.
