Press: Etsy Fashion – Ruffled Reveler

Ooh la la – one of my vintage finds was featured in an Etsy Fashion email last week! The adorable piece, which is a black and white polka dot fitted dress with a peplum waist, is one of my favorites from a photo shoot with Wanderslustings‘ wonder Caitlin Peters. So glad to see it being noticed!

Events: Pierogi Picnic at RCF

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who made it out to this past weekend’s 10th annual Renegade Craft Fair!

We saw tons of friendly faces, from family and friends to visits from online fans and regular Renegaders. Your support and encouragement mean the world to me! Thank you for your smiles and for inspiring me in my work.

Guess who made a surprise pit stop by the Pierogi Picnic booth at the Renegade Craft Fair this past weekend? Apparently a photographer from the Chicago Sun-Times!

Imagine my surprise when a friend emailed me a link to their coverage of the event! My new “Point of Light” upcycled ruffle dress takes center stage in the featured picture. I’m stoked, and I hope you are too!¬†Who could ask for better press?!

Item of the Week: Hello Doily

I am absolutely loving on this new design! It combines many of my favorite elements in one simple and chic skirt. The soft upcycled cotton makes a perfect base for a flirty shape and hand-stenciled prints.

And for the gal who is obsessed with the peplum trend – but can’t find the confidence to sport the skin-tight pencil skirts they come on – this is the perfect solution! The a-line cut is flattering for many shapes, be it curvy or straight, and gives the wearer space to move.

Currently available made-to-order – this skirt will be debuting in a variety of shades as ready-to-wear in late September. So keep your eyes peeled to my Etsy shop.
