FASHION FRIDAY: Peachy Keen

Fashion Friday #fashionfriday

Hey y’all! It’s been a while since I wrote Fashion Friday. Mea culpa. I’ve been exploring the realm of other topics–any and all other topics.

But today, everyone’s favorite rude Etsy round-up is back…and juicy.

Peach Bow
Let people know you’re a dimwit before you turn around!

We’ll start off simply with this little peach bow from seller myjustpeachyshop (wonder how they came up in search? Hmm). This seller offers a lot of hair bows, all of which are perfect for adding a darling dash of “I don’t know what I’m doing” to your boring workday outfits. Where are those reports? I don’t know; I have a bow in my hair. Who left pudding in the office sink? Wasn’t me! Look, I’m wearing a bow.

Peach Aragonite Necklace
This thing is struggling to break free and kill us all.

Then it gets a little more complicated. This “peach aragonite gold” necklace from seller friedasophie looks like it has developed a life of its own. It will probably cut your throat while you’re wearing it, and I mean really cut it. But it’s so pretty, why not take a chance?

Peach Flats
Dance party! JK, you can’t afford these.

You knew some ballet flats had to make their way in here, and here they are. Seller thewhiteribbon knew exactly what I was coveting, and now I have to resist these suede-to-order shoes. Look how soft they are–like the outside of a peach, or a baby’s face right after it cries.

Peach Sundress
Bridal bitchface.

Last but not least, check out this serious chiffon sundress from seller LYDRESS. You may need to hire someone to stand behind you and hold it off the ground–and also to shield your modesty from curious onlookers, because this dress looks sheer as hell. Anything for fashion.

Are you gearing up for summer with some juicy gear? Let me know.

BLACK (FASHION) FRIDAY: Buy or Die

Fashion Friday #fashionfriday

Has anyone else noticed how insane Black Friday has gotten? The buying frenzy actually starts on Thanksgiving now, creeping up from midnight store openings to 9pm, 8pm and earlier on Thursday.

News flash: you cannot take Thanksgiving, Black Friday. RUDE.

Since I’d rather shop online anyway and never leave my house, here are my favorite Etsy picks from today’s retail-based insanity.

ALSO, Etsy has the added benefit of offering customizable items, so instead of grabbing the last ___ on the shelf, you can give personalized gifts.

Monogram Bar Necklace
Gold for the first-place winner in your life, and other colors for the rest of those losers.

Take, for example, this custom monogram bar necklace from seller makepienotwarCustomize it with a name, date, or both, like the day you realized Black Friday was rull dumb.

Macbook Case
Is it just me, or does it have eyes?

A classy laptop sleeve like this one from seller WillowandCompany is also always a good bet. Appealing, unisex, and you can use code ship4free4me to get free shipping. Whaaaaaat yes.

Baggy Sweater
Knitted from 100% holiday melancholy.

I’m really digging this giant blue sweater from seller kupukupuapparel, which looks like a tent until you realize it has tight “Japanese-style” sleeves. Then it becomes a super-high-fashion tent. Perfect for the loved one whose weight fluctuates uncontrollably!

Custom Tie Clip
If you really did, this would be a diamond, amirite?

Show your love, then hide it away with this customizable tie clip from seller CelebrateToday. It’s made of brushed aluminum, so it won’t tarnish even after your love has rusted to nothingness. I mean…love springs eternal.

Happy shopping!
