It’s Cyber Monday – which means only one thing – today is the day to get your virtual shopping done for the season! And if you’ve been eyeing a Pierogi Picnic piece or two, check out the mix and match deals that you can use until midnight tonight on anything in my shop, including cute new designs like “Grunge Love.

This adorable tote bag was made using pre-loved flannel fabric which was bogarted from a vintage skirt. Cut up and resewn into a pint-sized purse,  the plaid print, over-sized bow and fun fringe make it a great piece for everyday toting or as a gift for that eco-conscious cousin who’s on your holiday shopping list. There are only two of these beauties available – so snatch one up before it’s gone for good!

Item of the Week: Grunge Plunge

I’ve been noticing a lot more plaid in the Midwest than I’m used to these days. And I’m liking the trend! What seems to be a classic pattern in the Northwest – this cross hatch of colors is a staple to any American’s wardrobe  and it seems hotter than ever. Just this past weekend I enjoyed Vietnamese sandwiches with friends – and three of the six of ’em were wearing plaid!

So when deciding on the “Item of the Week” the choice seemed easy: the Grunge Plunge dress. What I refer to as a Pierogi Picnic classic, this adorable design fuses the charm of a vintage camisole with the rough and tumble tough of a men’s shirt, giving a softness to an otherwise beard and brawn look. It’s a piece I have been making now for over 3 years and the look of the opposing fabrics is something I never grow tired of! And seemingly – neither do you – as I continue to sell out of these dresses in shows season after season.
