Etsy Finds

I've saving up my spending money to use at Etsy, since I'm feeling much more like buying handmade than just going to the mall. Something about helping the up-and-comers. Anyway, here are the things I love right now. All photos are from the seller's shop on etsy.
Jellyfish t-shirt: I studied biology (ecology to be specific) in university, so I have a huge soft spot for nature (don't get me going on how I love animals and plants more than people). This t-shirt from nonfictiontees is absolutely perfect for me. On my want list for sure!





Sweet Tease dress: This dress from fashionloft is so pretty! I love the pattern and the design is gorgeous! Too bad it's not in my size.














English Rose Ruffle dress: This dress from Lirola is so pretty! I want to wear it everywhere, all summer long! I might have to break my piggy bank for this one, but I'm thinking it might be worth it. What do you think?

All fabulous finds! The jellyfish print is totally awesome, I love how much detail there is in the image!

The first dress is lovely! I like how the exposed zipper toughens up the floral a little bit. And the ruffled dress is lovely too! The colour is divine, and it's such a sophisticated look!

I totally get what you mean by supporting small businesses. Going to the mall is cheap and easy, but it's so much more fun to have something different. And when it's handmade - even better! (Course, I like to make my own things.) And that's why I like thrifting, you get the best of both worlds - cheap and unique (but it's not always easy to hunt through everything to find the gems! But the treasure hunt makes it fun!).

Good luck to your wallet!

It is so cool that you are going to try to Etsy shop more :) I love that T-shirt! It is really cool, if you still want the dress after 24 hours, go for it.
