Obsession Confession: Tara Smith
DFW Style Daily always delights in revealing the fashion confessions of Dallas’ top trendsetters. Today, we present an addiction that’s even hotter than our soaring summer temps as Tara Smith, founder of lingerie label Cherie Amie, shares her latest must-haves.
Proving she’s a femme fatale with a heart of gold, Smith’s line of lacy creations is based on the fair trade business model, and Cherie Amie contributes 100 percent of its profits to fund micro-loans for women in Africa. Smith, whose current obsession can help all girls feel more glamorous, asks, “Who says we can’t look hot, feel confident, and help other women?”
The Confession: “Like any woman, my skin is important to me, and so is the way my skin feels in lingerie,” Smith explains. “Right now, I’m addicted to Lush’s bath bombs and Soap Hope’s massage products by Indigo Wild.”
The Rationalization: Commenting on the added bonuses of her skincare regimen, Smith says, “My fiancé and I both love the oils we order from Soap Hope – and not just because they’re perfect date material! Like Cherie Amie, all of the profits fund micro-loans for women in poverty, and that nourishes my skin and my soul.”
The Collection: Our expert currently stocks her vanity with LUSH’s Coco Lotion, as well as Argan Oil Shampoo from Soap Hope. From her own line, she’s loving the ‘Bonsoir’ baby doll nightie and ‘Humanitarian Hottie’ boy short panties (pictured below).
Shop It: You can snag all of Smith’s finds online at LUSH.com and SoapHope.com. To pre-order pieces from Cherie Amie, check out the label’s website, BeSexyBuyFair.com. Finally, to learn more about the company’s fair trade concept, visit IndieGoGo.com/BeSexyBuyFair.
