We don't need an excuse to shop the fashionable goods at Edith Hart. And from now until the end of June, the rad Chicago boutique is giving us a reason to feel a little less guilty about all of our purchases. Edith Hart owner Morgan Gutterman partnered up with Windy City native (and model/actress) Kim DeJesus to host a fundraising event for the charity she started with her hubby, Cubs outfielder David DeJesus.
So, here's how it works: Simply log on to EdithHart.com and shop wares from Keepsake, Smythe, Sass & Bide, Wildfox, and Papercrown (all modeled by Kim), and a portion of the proceeds from your purchases will be donated to The David DeJesus Family Foundation. Not only will you be taking care of your shopping needs, more importantly, you'lll be helping out families in crisis in Chi-town and parts of the world where people lack basic human needs. Now that's what we call shopping you can feel good about.
