Recently I discovered Etsy. It’s been around for ages and for those that haven’t heard of it, it is a site where individuals who are amazingly creative and crafty are able to sell their homemade items. I downloaded the App from the itunes store and started having a browse….I was still browsing 3 hours later…there are SO many gorgeous things to buy, at decent prices, and for everybody and anybody from all over the world!
The first store I came across was Dirty Rotten Rags… Rayon is the owner and creator of this Etsy store which sells some AMAZING “mashed-up 80s/90s vintage”. There are jewellery items, clothing and more, all hand-customised, with the opportunity to add your own customisation and personalised stamp on the items. My particular favourites are the old-style acid-washed Adidas tops and the dripping Chanel jewellery.
We recently received these stunning earrings…
These beaut earrings are made from a gold mirrored acrylic in the style of a dripping Chanel emblem. Emily and I recently went out for our friend Josh’s leaving dinner and I wanted to be dressy but it was wayyyy too cold for a dress and so i threw on some black skinny jeans and a grey top with Topshop heels and then to really add some fabulousness to my plain outfit I added these earrings.
They are so unbelievably light I could barely feel them – long drooping earlobes are a big no no in my book – yet I had so many comments that evening on the sparkle of the earrings. I was able to wear a large cool earring without having the weight of large metal earrings all night.
