etsy finds.

When I’m feeling uninspired by the usual store-bought goods, I turn to Etsy for a refreshingly unique perspective.  It’s an online marketplace of art, antiques, and pretty much anything else you can imagine, but my favorite items are generally handcrafted and wearable.  From jewelry to bags and even iPhone cases, there’s sure to be something you can’t find at your local mall.

My friend Sarah can rock a maxi dress like no other (think tall, blonde, gorg).  I, on the other hand, have to be super selective in finding a dress that doesn’t swallow me whole.  So when Sarah told me that maxi dresses don’t work in the winter, I set out to prove her wrong.

Granted, I use the term “winter” loosely, considering we live in Arizona. Nevertheless, the challenge inspired me to adapt a conventionally summertime dress for cooler weathers.  Layers are the obvious key to this transition and while I’m still sleeveless in November (75°F yesterday), a chunky cardigan or sweater would work just as well.  Love ya Sarah!

My obsession for Instagram continues!  I love finding inspiration in random, everyday objects and Instagram is my favorite way of capturing it.  I also love browsing through everyone else’s photos and seeing such diverse  perspectives. If you have the iPhone app, add me (@jennyinjacquard)!  Happy weekend everyone!
