Makool's Wrap Skirt
With my discovery of blogs came the discovery of many, many talented designers who sell their amazing, handmade creations via such sites as Etsy. I like the idea of buying from individuals rather than from chain stores. It's not just about wearing something unique, but also about sustaining a community of like-minded individuals who share their skills and ideas with us, and work with a ferociously independent vibe.
Among those many designers, Makool immediately became one of my favorites, and I have at long last ordered one of her items. This denim wrap-skirt is actually made of bamboo - pandas' favorite snack is also one of fashion's favorite earth-friendly new fabrics. The skirt arrived a couple of days only after I placed my order, wrapped in paper and with a sticker to funny that I debated whether or not to actually open the package - I always have the same problem when I order from super tasteful Artycho.
What are your favorite Etsy stores?
