I love to shop Etsy for one of a kind pieces. I especially love embroidered pieces. But I am not picky. I’ll know it when I see it.
And I saw it.
But it was sold out, so I contacted Lisa from Madame Hall on Etsy to see if she would be making any more of the dresses I had seen on her site in a size medium. She did not have any but she sent me a few pictures of this dress laying flat.
And, of course, I loved it.
I bought it (with the help of a gift card from the sweetest lady ever. Thank you B!) and anxiously awaited its arrival.
It came in the coolest package about two weeks later. She sewed the package up with my address on the cloth. Inside of the initial package, the dress was wrapped in another gorgeous embroidered simple cloth bag. And she even sent me a beautiful embroidered scarf as a gift. Truly exceptional service. I would not hesitate to order from her again and to recommend her shop to others.
I was not planning on pairing it with brown boots. In fact, I was going to wear it with my black fringed booties. But the snow would have ruined those. I did need to quickly grab a slip for underneath this because of the length. It is almost more of a tunic than a dress but because it is made from wool, I would only wear this with tights and leggings in the wintertime any way.
The bright cheerful colors just make me so happy.
I feel like this dress was meant to be mine. Or I was meant for it. It only needed to find me half way across the world. From India to me.
Do you buy clothing items from Etsy? Do you ever feel a personal connection to an item of clothing? Does it speak to you?
I’m not gonna tell you what it says.
Just this once. I’ll spill the beans. Or beads as it were…
With a shimmer. A glimmer. A whisper, it breathes, “OHHHHHH YEAAAAAAHHHHHH.”
Or maybe that’s just me.
