EVE Team Review: Best Shops of the Week

I'm taking it up a notch - and walking on the wild side with all three favorite shops this week. I say color, fun and spring are the guidelines - let's roll!

Vintage Shop of the Week: Moonchild Vintage

They had me at striped shoes. I love to shop vintage garments and haven't been to a mall in ages. I admit that I gravitate first to vintage shoes and then browse happily through the clothes. Selling on Etsy since 2010, Moonchild Vintage features brightly colored garments with fun, whimsical photography. But please don't buy those shoes - I think I might be able to squeeze my size-9 feet into them.

From left to right: vintage shawl, vintage dress, vintage high heels.


Handmade Shop of the Week: DDSL Girls Store

DDSL stands for Dress, Dance, Sing, Love, Live, and that pretty much sums up this wonderful shop! There is some serious fun going on in Riga. Wonderfully colorful leather bags and earrings bring this shop to life! The imagination and creative flow jumps off the page, and I feel happy just looking at the goodies here.

From left to right: leather tassel earrings, small leather clutch, green & blue floral comb.

Newbie Shop of the Week: The Dolls Unique

I grew up doing a lot of sewing. I made doll clothes, my own clothes and quilts. It never occurred to me that I might actually make a doll! What I love about the dolls at The Dolls Unique is that they pair human faces with rabbit ears and antlers - whimsical! And what about the cool polka dots??? Then there is little YES and NO creature that I absolutely need in my office. Just sayin'.

From left to right: rabbit doll, soft creature, plush dolls.

I like it Wherever I turn my head I see a crazy good textile designer who blows my mind. Where do you get your inspiration, what do you like about it and how does it affect your creations? It also unifies me with others, because it's a “hot” field of design these days.
