Welcome to of my weekly spot,
Friday's Fashion Finds!
♥ Friday's Fashion Finds, or F.F.F, features weekly collections of Handmade or Vintage pieces that I love, all of which comes from designers and artists primarily from the Etsy community. I feel that it is so important for people to see the quality and beauty produced by these amazing designers. Why would you EVER want to shop in a Department Store when you can support Small Business owners and Artists. Who said "handmade" had to be frumpy? These designers say otherwise! This is couture at it's finest!! ♥
Why do I do my "Finds"?
Well, I love Fashion. I'm a girl, I can't help it! I was definitely a fashion victim as a kid. Not that that meant I always wore what was "cool" Usually, I didn't. I definitely had unique taste! LOL. However, I've always loved clothes and design and fabrics and patterns and the way they lay on someone's body. If I could focus more on the details, Fashion School would have been fun. Alas, I just enjoy finding things.
I am not embarrassed to say that my main staple clothing however is, has been, and will always be, jeans and a tee-shirt. I just know how to rock it a little better now. I'm obsessed with accessories and as I've had two little girls, I've finally become a girl ( was ALWAYS a Tom Boy) and I love make-up. It's so much fun!
Now, don't go pegging me as some shallow fashionista obsessed with looks, cause I'm not. I wear make-up and pretty things because it's FUN! I love expressing myself with clothing and make-up and as an artist there is no greater satisfaction than "composing" your own look each day. I'm not afraid to get dirty either. I love being in nature, hiking, camping, working in my garden, being filthy. Ya, I said filthy. It's FUN too!! ;)
So, all that being said, that's why I love doing my "Find's". I've also discovered the AMAZING potential on Etsy of handmade designers. It blows my mind. I feel the very strong need to share what I find with the world, so alas, my "Friday's Fashion Find's". I hope you love it as much as I love putting it all together and finding and getting to know the designers.
