Etsy Treasures: Jessica Durant

Jessica’s Little Shop of Illustrations by JessicaIllustration.

I’m sure I’ve said this before, but Etsy is an interesting beast.  There is some legit crap out there, not going to lie.  Like knitted Kleenex box covers.  But on the other hand, there is some great stuff, you just have to look for it.  I’ve gotten some great little pieces of art at really great prices.

I found Jessica Durant’s Etsy shop, and I think her illustrations are so great.  An example of the non-crap out there.  They’re stark and girly and modern.  Some day I envision having a major bedroom-sized closet with a chair to lounge in and great prints all over the walls.  These would be perfect.

Lust List: Art Deco Earrings

For my second installment of the Lust List, I bring you some sweet 20’s and 30’s -inspired earrings that are trending right now (sorry for using the term “trending”).  I’ve always been a fan of art deco – I find it fun, funky, and hip but very chic at the same time.  We’ve got some Gatsby going on here (very excited for the upcoming Baz Luhrmann remake by the way), inspired by stained glass windows, geometric shapes, swanky colors (yes, colors can be swanky), and metallic accents.  I think all of these would be a great pop to a little black dress or an otherwise simple outfit.

Lust List: Colorblock Bags

Welcome to the first installment of what (I hope) will be a weekly feature, inspired by my favorite blogger, Heather (who also named this column – I won’t even pretend I’m as good as her at alliteration – love you ladyfrand!); basically, all the great shit that I want to buy out there on the interwebs that I can’t/should not afford!!  I gave up online shopping for Lent, but just like marriage, you can look, you just can’t touch (email me for more iron-clad marriage advice and just call me Dr. Phil).

I’m a total bag lady, so I find it appropriate that first lustful installment would be bags (it just occurred to me that it’s  incredibly inappropriate to be talking about lust (in an encouraging way) during Lent…sorry…).  But…BAGS!  Be still my heart.  I’d just die for one of the Fendi ones.  And if I ever spend that much money on a bag, someone go ahead and kill me (and use the life insurance money to pay off the credit card bill).  Luckily, Queen Diane (Von Furstenberg) has some pretty great, fun alternatives.  ANYWAYS, I wear a lot of black and gray to work, so I really love these statement colorblock bags.  They’re multi-color, but I think paired with the right outfits and styling, these can act as neutrals.  Come on Easter, Mama needs a new pair of shoes awesome work bag!
