Join DIANI for Small Business Saturday

DIANI Owner/Buyer, Caroline, shared the benefits of shopping small on Small Business Saturday (11/30/13) today on her blog — and that made us want to spread the word also! DIANI, along with many other businesses in Santa Barbara, will be taking part in this important day. Just in time for holiday shopping, right? Even better, we’ll be extending special offers to those who visit us on Saturday.

The amazing infographic below shows just how much of an impact small businesses have on our economy — it’s a must see. Share this graphic with your friends and encourage them to shop small also!

Trend We Love: Band Jackets

Fashion is cyclical — trends come and they go. Personally, we’re super excited to see the band jacket, a look that was wildly popular a few years back, reemerging. Unlike the literal versions from years past, we’re keen on a pared down version of this look. It adds interest to your everyday look without being too costumey. Our top pick right now is Smythe’s aptly named Band Jacket. Scroll down to shop!
