Sweet Home Boutique

Sweet Home Boutique is an adorable clothing shop on Etsy. It specializes in women's and children's attire. You'll find fun retro dresses, tunics, skirts, children's unitards and rompers, crochet hats, assorted accessories and home decor. The style of the clothing is almost country-chic with a modern flair. The most precious feature this shop has is its Family Matching section donning matching clothing sets for the family!

It's no wonder, this shop is family oriented. Being a homeschooling mother of five, owner and designer, Rachel Sample, makes time to create clothing for her family and her shop. She gets her ideas from her own intuition and personal style. Perhaps Rachel's experiences has led her to design her unique items. She has been selling on Etsy for three years. When she began, Rachel lived in Hawaii, teaching herself to sew items for herself and her children.

Rachel loves devoting time to her clothing, primarily because of her children. She loves to create new clothes for her kids. "Every piece in my shop, except for custom orders, are owned and worn by myself and my children." As a military wife, Rachel has to occasionally close her shop between moves and to spend time with her five children.

All the profit made from Sweet Home Boutique is invested back into materials for new items. Check out Sweet Home Boutique across the web on FacebookTwitterBlogspotPinterest, and Wanelo!

Truly Glamorous Designs

I absolutely love these designs and want to share them with my readers. Zoharous is a wonderful Etsy shop that carries glamorous, custom made clothing. All items are tailored to fit, and possess funky-chic styled patterns. The shop contains primarily dresses and skirts, but also has trousers, shorts, and assorted tops.

The funky fabrics of the clothing are actually inspired by a blend of African heritage with modern fashion trends. Owner and designer, Belinda Compah-Keyeke, is a self-taught fashion designer from Ghana. Her fashion career began in junior high school where she began sketching clothing designs. She soon began to sew and modify clothing she owned. Belinda has been designing and sewing ever since, and recently opened her shop in August 2012.

Zoharous strives to make her clients glamorous. The name itself literally epitomizes glamour. Belinda explains, "I found the word zohar" which is Hebrew for glamour, and she simply added 'ous' to complete her glamorous name! Her products are exactly that. They have unique patterns and textiles. "I love to use lots of colour and print. I love to dress fun, happy people who want to feel and love what they wear."

What's also unique is that Belinda will customize any clothing you want. Her shop offers customers "a chance to choose a different fabric from what they see in the store front," meaning if you see a skirt print you'd like on a top, she will custom design your order! The collaboration of the creation process makes that article of clothing much more special than any 'off the rack' item.

Aside from her clothing line, Belinda also writes for a news blog, a fashion and lifestyle blog, and is soon to pursue Med school in China.

Art of Jewelry

I came across a lovely little shop, My Art Game, on Etsy. The shop specializes in unique, sophisticated, handmade jewelry. The shop carries bracelets, necklaces, anklets, and earrings. All of which are reminiscent of a natural, bohemian style with their earth-toned colors and textured designs. 

The jewelry's earthy designs comes from owner and creator, Katerina. While living in Greece, Katerina is inspired by nature, art, and fashion trends. "Creating is a way of living for me. It
helps me express my feelings and always gets all my problems out of my mind." She grew up creating artwork, and recently discovered her passion to make jewelry.

My Art Game opened only a few months ago, but the potential it has is enormous. Her style is very unique. Katerina uses all kinds of materials. She uses glass beads, crystals, pearls, cotton, leather, rope, fabric, and wire, to name a few. Her rope necklaces are like nothing I've ever seen before. All her life, Katerina has been creating, and she finally gets to share her artwork across the world. My Art Game is "the bridge that helps me connect with other people... it is so touching for me to know that somebody is giving life to something that I created with so much love and devotion." Be sure to like My Art Game on Facebook and follow the shop on Pinterest.
