Ever since I learned about the existence of Etsy stores, I made it my life purpose to stalk them and be sad that I can’t afford anything. I’ve been very good at this for years now, until an incredible lady contacted me and whispered to me (sounds a bit sexual, but it’s not!) the two words that grease my rusted heart gears: “Free items!”. Yes… I’m as shallow as a stream, but so is your mom!
The lady’s name is Meg Fazio, and she owns a rad vintage store called Little Raisin.
Meg has a love for tiny backpacks and a passion for everything quirky and out of the ordinary. Her store is a mix of vintage pieces with a twist, every item is special and unique. Some of them she upcycles with bleach, fabric paint and patches, and you can see how cool they turn out by checking out my rad new denim vest from her store. This used to be a classic old boring vest, until Meg came along removed the pockets and slapped a cutesy hamster t-shirt patch on it.
I was born left handed, and I was born left handed in my heart, I can’t sew a button or even cut a straight line, so I’ve always had great respect for people who create things with their own hands. And Meg is one of those people.
But what I have greater respect for, are low prices! O_O Little Raisin keeps the prices affordable, which is something I rarely see coming from an Etsy store. So have a peek and see if you’d like something! And if you do I have great news for you! You can get a 15% off on your first purchase! All you have to do is like Little Raisin’s Facebook page and use the discount code Keit15 before checking out!
Few words about the outfit. It was cheek-bitingly freezing the day I wore this, I even had a parka on top. I usually like to cover myself in different colors like a Christmas tree, but this time I decided to make the vest stand out by pulling off an all red ensemble.
The raspberry sweater is from Mango, I got it on sale few years ago. For accessories I took my festive hat for a spin, the surprised/depressed panda bag and my new glass necklace. It may be too early for my Christmas hat, but I don’t care, I love Christmas, I need it in my life!
I got one more item from Little Raisin and I’ll be posting photos with it very soon. If you want to see me striking sexy poses, don’t miss out on post number 2!
