Since I most definitely do my part to support certain big online stores through the year, ahem, and even the vintage sellers on Etsy, around now I usually try to support and discover some local makers, especially because you can see and touch pretty things, and meet a lot of great people! I wish there were more of these big events throughout the year (I suppose these exhausted folks might disagree!)
I've wanted one of these detachable peter pan collars for awhile, but kept telling myself that I should make it myself. Having manifestly NOT done so, I was pretty pleased to see this beautiful printed collar a week ago. It goes with everything!
At this past weekend's craft market, I also made sure to note some helpful gift suggestions for Santa!
Of course, I've put bright tights at the top of my list, like every year. They help add life and fun to even the most staid and librarianly of outfits. Like so...
