We're big believers in the importance of shopping local, and starting this month, we have a new segment that will help you do just that. Each month on our website, we'll break down the curated items you see on our pages — from the glittering, cover-worthy gowns to the unique serveware in our table settings — connecting the dots between our readers and the businesses that make up our community.

Find it every month right here at littlerocksoiree.com. Now let's get shopping.
