Want to add a bit of glam to your look this fall? Recall an era of sultry screen sirens, shadowed by dark drama, with signature vintage pieces and retro inspired new classics! Bold, seductive lips, smoky come-hither eyes , and elegantly tailored fashion pieces contrast beautifully to create the look of a fierce femme fatale. It's easier than you might think and you don't have to be a total vamp to incorporate this trend into your everyday style. Here are several pieces that add some old school glamour with a look that's all 2013!
In the last week I have sent off parcels to Northern Ireland, Australia, Norway and the US. It left me thinking- Etsy shop owners really do have the world at their feet. While this is utterly fantastic, it also causes a bit of a problem, of lots and lots of choice for buyers.
So with a world of choice out there, where do you start?
So, what if you are looking for that perfect everyday shoulder bag, try a tote, they never go out of style. There simple construction means they are practical and convenient. Designers have a blank canvas to which they can accent in numerous prints, styles and fabrics. From minimalist to stylish in linen ( 1. like Independent Reign in New York ) to bold and nautical in leather ( 2. from Coriumi in Lithuania). Try a Mexico inspired hand dyed canvas print (3. from scout and catalogue in Canada), or maybe some advice on how to be happy with typography print in cotton ( 4. from Toodle Noodles in New Zealand). Finally, how about a tattooed cat print to make you smile (5. from Sophie Parker in London). Which would you choose?

It's finally here, well almost here at least officially. I am talking about Fall/Autumn or whatever you may call it. I've said this many times before but it is my absolutely favorite season of the year with Spring being number two. With the new season comes new and fun colors to explore. Pantone has released it's fall color palette and I am going to be sharing my favorite items on Etsy that show off these fabulous fall colors. First up is Acai, a deep purple, which always seem to be a hallmark of fall fashion.
