Let’s Talk Etsy

I am a HUGE fan of Etsy. I won’t lie, I’ve spent my fair share of consecutive hours perusing through seller after seller finding amazing creations, from vintage jewelry to handmade cards. I. Love. It. All. I’m constantly finding new sellers and items that I love but here are my top 10 Etsys that I simply cannot get enough of:

  1. www.etsy.com/shop/littleloveliesshop The Little Lovelies Shop is full of vintage rose earrings and pins. Adorable, cute, perfect. Enough said!
  2. www.etsy.com/shop/LemonLovesPaper Lemon Loves Paper is a great resource for fun and amazingly creative greeting cards. The “thank you” cards are my fave.
  3. www.etsy.com/shop/FreshyFig The Freshy Fig Etsy store is one of my all-time FAVORITES! I’ve never seen such cool and unique jewelry. You must peruse through all 180 items to get the full effect. Sarah, I want to get this one for you.
  4. www.etsy.com/shop/japonicas The beautiful vintage jewelry on this Etsy is very whimsical and feminine. J’adore this camera necklace.
  5. www.etsy.com/shop/seedknits The Seed Knits Etsy has the most gorgeous handmade knits. By now, we all know how much I love tube/cowl/circle scarves. One more couldn’t hurt, right?
  6. www.etsy.com/shop/waysideviolet Wayside Violet’s coffee “cozies” are a perfect alternative to paper sleeves. How innovative and eco-friendly!
  7. www.etsy.com/shop/TheLobsterPot Though there are quite a few “Keep Calm and Carry On” Etsy shops, I love The Lobster Pot‘s because of my not-so-mild obsession with cupcakes.
  8. www.etsy.com/shop/irenesuchocki This Etsy has beautiful and enchanting prints/photos/cards. There is a certain je ne sais quoi about these photos that I find to be so whimsical and lovely.
  9. www.etsy.com/shop/hellohandmadepaperie I’ve already introduced you to Hello Handmade Paperie in my Valentine’s Day post but they definitely belong on my top 10 fave Etsys as well. The Valentine letters that they’ve recently sold out of are my definition of a perfect gift. And the calligraphy is just stunning!
  10. www.etsy.com/shop/thecozyfarmhouse And of course my favorite Etsy is The Cozy Farmhouse! I introduced you to The Cozy Farmhouse awhile back as well. Ann-Marie’s creations are the perfect dose of feminine. I can’t get enough!

look I know I just posted about doitinparis.com, but la femme in their newest illustration is wearing a TUBE SCARF.

I just about died! Whenever I see someone (in this case, a 2-dimensional someone) wearing something I want in a really chic and unique way, it instantly makes me want it more. Must find a black tube!

Scarf Season

October 22, 2009

Filed Under : STYLE


Bottom line, my favorite seasons are fall and winter. No disrespect to summer and spring but the blistering sun freckles my face and blooming flowers rile up my allergies like no other. Don’t get me wrong, I love the hot weather – I live in Southern California for goodness sake. But there’s something about wintery weather that puts a smile on my face. It means only one thing: LAYERING UP!

Cardigans, sweaters, long tees, flannel shirts, blazers, peacoats, leather jackets – all perfect tools in the art of layering. But, by far, my absolute FAVORITE layering tool is scarves. Every year, I look for new and interesting patterns and shapes to add to my diverse collection. When on a scarf hunt, one of the first places I look is J.Crew’s sister company, Madewell. Not only is Madewell my favorite brand for clothing, but they also have the BEST collection of scarves. If you want to see this collection with your own eyes, you have to visit one of their retail stores (California locations include Century City Mall and Americana at Brand).

This year, I have my eyes on a tube scarf. I’ve looked high and low for one of these babies for the past few weeks and let me tell you, they are hard to find! But of course Madewell came through for me in the form of their heather oatmeal funnel scarf (pictured). It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. There’s something about this scarf that looks so comfy and warm! I would wear one right now if it wasn’t 85 degrees outside.
