Independent Fashion designers on etsy.

We're getting ready to go on our annual cruise soon (don't try to come steal my collection of Q-tips used by celebrity's, my parents are house sitting!).  This girl needs something to wear, because of course, I have NOTHING to wear and I HATE everything I do own!
So last night I was grazing on etsy and look at all these CUTE custom pieces!!
The shop name is below each item and will take you to their shop.  Go see... I am amazed that people can actually SEW like this....I can't imagine being able to make something like this!
RiverOfRomansk (I could have put every one of her designs on here...the way I dream of dressing!)
Penni Pops Designs (you had me at pink!)
Flutter (I know one of the designers at this shop, she is a doll! Go check their ruffled collars!!!)
ThongbalTaTong (this mix match style is my FAVE, totally me!!)
and then some store bought goodies (although just not as much character and style as the handmade!):

So I'm headed out today to shop, it's always a challenge when you're 4' 11 3/4" short.  Wish I could buy some leg length!!!
Where do you shop the most?  I'll admit, TJ Maxx gets a lot of my clothing $, they have an odd assortment of items and I can sometimes find weird sizes.  Do you ever buy custom clothing on etsy (or anywhere else)?  Favorite items this season??  Least favorite items this season?  I'll tell you one thing i am NOT excited about...those little floral prints that were so big in the 80's, I was over those in 1989!
Happy Thursday!  We have a 2 hour ice delay this morning... 
Welcome to Michigan Spring!!

I think you would love the clothes at Modcloth and Ruche ( but I really like all types of stores. Marshalls, boutiques, Gap, Banana, Macys, Loft.
i have bought owl stuff for Mel and an apron from Etsy but I do love that pink dress for you!
I like neutrals as always and a few colorful things to make them fun but florals and plaids are not good. I also hate skinny jeans so the wide leg trouser makes me happy. I die for the shoes out now but heels are also a no.
Have fun shopping. We are thinking about a cruise later this year, never have been. What is your favorite cruise line and where do you like to go?

That pink dress is to die for!!

I would love to go on a shopping spree! Etsy has such super cute handmade clothes, doesn't it? Cool designers-Wow!

Cute stuff! I wish I could sew like that, too...

I get most of my stuff at Banana Republic, Target, and Forever 21. Which is a weird combination of places, now that I think about it.

That first dress and the red accented skirt are both amazing.

That skirt is in my faves too!! I dream of dressing that way too - I love an over the top boho/romantic style.

Have fun shopping!!

Most of my clothes have to come from Stein Mart, Belk, or JC Penney since those are the only stores in my town -SERIOUSLY I am not exaggerating! But Stein Mart has some really pretty things -- but the ONLY reason we have one here is because the Steins are from my town and the first ever Stein Mart was here.
