New York has always been one of the biggest fashion hubs in America. They host fashion week every year, and there are always the trendiest people walking the buzzing city streets. Its easy for desires to gain inspiration just by looking out the windows of their studio apartments. So who is the next big designer? Who is setting trends and taking names? The answer is Susan Young… the creator of Launch, ready to wear fashions that she makes using her own textiles and designs. Her overall sale is iconic, relating to the 60′ and 70’s era in a way that also speaks to right now. Her creations are beautiful and she puts a lot of love into her work, stating that her fashion are a “mixture of art and fuction”. I fell in love with her collection for 2015 and found out that she is funding it through Kickstarter, hoping to succeed in time for this years fall season.

Etsy.com is an online store set up with separate shops, each with their own sellers, selling homemade or unique products. Browsing etsy is super easy ( it has a great search engine) and the shops on etsy are always neatly laid out.
Searching through the site I came across one shop in particular that struck my fancy so I decided to reach out to the shop owner and feature this unique shop on our blog. Below is a link to Daintygeekery an etsy shop that sells handmade earrings in the shapes of your favorite characters. These are just a few of the selections from the shop and all shown are under $10! How exciting is that!? These earrings make great gifts for others or are an amazing add to any collection.
Here is a link to the shop so you can have a look for yourself, remember that what is shown is only a small selection of what daintygeekery has to offer. Also look around on etsy.com and discover other shops that you may enjoy!
