ETSY is the new Couture

If you have never browsed or shopped at ETSY and are interested in purchasing quality hand crafted items from people who care about what they make you should really check it out!

My friend known as Betty Boogie (posted about her yesterday) sent me a link to an ETSY shop that is completely amazing! I am a huge fan of vintage. Specifically the late 20's to early 50's era. And I love hats!

Terry Graziano designs her own hats using "a combination of draping, flat patterning, and machine and hand sewing". She uses designer mill-end surplus fabrics normally that would just end up in a landfill so she's eco friendly and all of her designs have five ways to wear them.

My favorite in her collection are "Incognito" - blue tweed chenille and "Confidante" - chocolate multi pinstripe.
