The theme of this week’s favorites is Blues and Greens. Springtime is here (at least for me) and I can’t get over the color combination. It’s so fresh and fun!
First up is retrofied. I just bought a moped last weekend and so I’m obsessed with all things 2-wheeled and motorized. Add a little love of polka dots and stripes and you have one awesome bag. Roomy, with lots of pockets, this is the perfect bag for someone like me. Lots of space to hold your junk and keep it organized. She’s based out of Chicago, and has lots of awesome fabrics and styles of bags – there is definitely something for everyone.
Next is econica. She has some really elegant designs, simple yet stunning. This dress is made of bamboo and organic cotton, a combination that I’m sure would feel even better than it looks. I love the intensity of this green – green in such a hard shade to do right, but I think this would be flattering on a number of skin types. I love that she uses mostly organic materials but still maintains a feminine, stylish form.
I keep seeing these soaps from amethystsoap pop up all over Etsy, and after taking a closer look I can see why. They really look like actual polished chunks of turquoise! They’ve got some all-natural goodies for a little exfoliating action (who couldn’t use that) and I think they would smell terrific. The rest of the soaps in the shop look like tumbled stones as well – how do they do it?
Last is adventuresofjr. I’ll make no secret of it – I’m a shmere snob. Why on earth would you wear anything besides cashmere? You can find it reasonably priced, if you look, and its just so sinful. You always want to pet yourself, or you can get someone else to pet you…anyway. She makes some beautiful, modern and fun accessories out of, you guessed it, cashmere! I think that I want everything in her shop. Life’s so short, everything should be soft. She also sells some of her lovely yarn here. Her shop is definitely worth a look – an perhaps a small indulgence?
That’s it for the week! Just a reminder, today is the last day to sign up for my giveaway! Scroll down and look for it, leave a comment, and you could be the lucky winner of some awesome prizes!
