More than shoes – handbags too!

I love Etsy, I really do. Hours and hours of searching through people’s fabulously handmade creations and never seeing the same thing twice. For me, it’s like a grown up chocolate factory.

My love for Etsy was fuelled even more today when I stumbled across a couple of stores in particular;

  • Scholarly Articles. A Phd student from California, this girl spends her time “upcycling” (as she so aptly describes it!) vintage bags and shoes. Her designs are simple, but oh so effective. Her shoes may be old, but oh so pretty – and did I mention that she will paint a bag to match? They will do nicely!

  • Sole Sensations. Across the water, this graphic designer creates wonderfully unique shoe sculptures. Not for those who like subtle tones or classic designs and even though I may not be able to walk in any of the creations, the ones below would be ideal for any christmas party and would certainly not clash with my LBD.
