CHUBBY CARTWHEELS SKIRT // H&M JUMPER // ASOS SHOES // CAMBRIDGE SATCHEL // MOONBUNNY BRACELET // DOLLY DARLING TEA CUP RING // MOONBUNNY BEAR RING // ASOS HAIR BOW // EVANS PEARL BRACELET
Hey everyone! it's been a while since I last posted an outfit, just haven't really had a chance to take pictures recently. Finally got the chance today, & we went down to the local canal to get some shots. My skirt is new, it's a custom order from Chubby Cartwheels. I saw they skirt that Tess Munster was wearing in an issue of Skorch Magazine (the Clueless issue!) & knew I had to have my own. So I commissioned Shawna for my own. It's lovely & soft, albeit a bit shorter on me than Tess, but I am much taller, haha! Everything else is old, except for my Moonbunny accessories, which went perfectly with my pink & purple theme!
Whilst we were taking photos some barges were going into the lock, so Carl helped them out moving the thingys (what are they called, anyone know?). It brought back memories from my childhood, I haven't watched people doing the locks since I was about 8 or so. Canal life seems so slow & peaceful, it was nice spending some of the afternoon by it.
Well, bye for now, & hopefully it won't be another long break between outfit posts again!

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share with you some awesome handcrafted stuff from indie sellers. First up are some super cute accessories from the shop MoonBunny on Etsy. They are a team of 2 girls based in Russia, called Veronica & Tatiana, who combine their creative talents to make both polymer clay & crochet accessories. I bought an adorable crochet bear bracelet, & a clay bear ring, both of which I am so happy with! I think both items were around the £9 mark, which I thought was really reasonable, especially for the bracelet (tiny crochet, omg!). I can't wait to wear these out:)
Next up is this red wool collar with leather poodle accents by Love From Hetty & Dave. I'd been lusting after this for a while, but finally ended up buying it the other week after it went on sale for just £14. So cute! This will be perfect in winter months. The shop is run by Zoe, & it has a physical store based in Bournemouth, filled with lots of handmade leather accessories.
These gorgeous brooches were actually sent to me by a reader, the lovely Suzana, who blogs at 100% Suzi. I'm not sure if she has an online shop, but it seems you can order items via email. If I remember rightly from the package I received, Suzana is based in Slovakia. All the items she creates are so sweet, I think they are based on her illustrations. Thank you so much again Suzana, if you are reading this, I love them! I actually wore the bird one out the other day, but didn't get a photo.
Last up is this crochet Slushee bag that I ordered in custom colours from Twinkie Chan. I've loved her work since forever, but have never bought anything before, but when I saw these new bags she had designed, I knew I had to have one. I think it was about £27, which I thought was really good, crochet items take a lot of work! Twinkie was super lovely in our convo & seemed to know exactly what I had in mind when I said I wanted it in a pink & red colourway. I couldn't be more pleased with it.

So that's it for this post, if you have any of your own recommendations for indie shops & sellers, do let me know in the comments! I love supporting small businesses when I can.
