My friend R of the blog, Lex and the City, recently told me about this cool Etsy shop called Ramona West. I checked it out and instantly fell in love. Then, while perusing my friend Joanna’s blog, Cup of Jo, I saw an Etsy shop on her site that looked neat called Dear Golden. Again, hook, line and sinker. Love at first sight. So much so, that I an picked some more favorite pieces and put together an outfit, which I posted today on Budget Fashion Report. The two online boutique have really different styles and pieces, but are really inspiring and fun to browse through and shop. Here are a few of my favorite items from both. Enjoy! SPxx
I am currently coveting this gorgeous homemade grey corsetted bustier. I love how it looks layered over that dark gray tank. So sexy and enticing, yet classy at the same time.
Her grey off-the-shoulder dress just makes me drool.
Back in early June, the boyf and I headed over to Governor’s Island to attend the Jazz-Age Lawn Party and Festival for some 1920’s enthusiast fun. People were decked to the nines in authentic apparel. There were dance lessons, croquet and tug of war games, and 1920’s motorcars on exhibit, to list a few. But, what was really fun, were all the folding tables set up with couture milliners pedaling all sorts of chic vintage hats and clothing. As I wandered along browsing through all the beautiful silk and lace items, I came across a booth called Charm School Design. They make these amazing feather headbands. I fell in love with everything at first sight, especially this piece, which is called “wide peacock eye feather headband.” Sigh…so gorgeous.
I have started to see feathers as an up and coming trend, and then today as I was getting my daily Sartorialist fix, I came across the photo below…her headband looked so similar to the ones I had seen at the festival, that I immediately went on the Charm School’s Etsy website and saw that it said the Sartorialist had in fact taken a photo of one of their customers…I wonder if this is she…
Elegant, yet with a twist of gladiator grit.
