Hey guys. We’re starting to return to work today, but our #1 priority remains– helping Houstonians in light of the recent devastation from Hurricane Harvey. So what does that look like for L. Avenue? You’ll continue to see Harvey coverage on our website including ways you can donate and shop for a cause, in addition to our more routine scheduled content.
Additionally, this month we’ll be donating 100% of our business profits directly to help victims of Hurricane Harvey. What does this mean? This might be a good time to briefly explain how our business works. L. Avenue is a small business that is made possible through two income streams–1. contracts with brands: this is when we collaborate with brands who pay an agreed upon flat fee to work with us and 2. commission: when you visit our website and purchase something we post via our links we receive a commission for that purchase from the retailer. For example, today’s black sandals that you see linked below. If you like them and click our link and purchase-we get a small commission. You aren’t charged anything additional though! It’s basically like I’m getting sales commission if you’re shopping at the L. Avenue online boutique instead of a physical sales person at your local boutique. Make sense? Sorry for the rant, but readers have asked this question in the past so it seems now is as good a time as any to explain it to y’all! So this month, we’ll be donating our profits back to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Now let’s dive into this pretty LBD, shall we? I found this gem at Nordstrom and love it’s a classic silhouette with a fringe twist. This dress will be on repeat and really works for any season. It would be great for any special event on your future–wedding, holidays, or even dressed down for something more causal.
Here are some more black dresses we’re loving for fall!
