Shop + Tell: Me


How often do you indie-shop?
I’ve had to significantly decrease my shopping sprees since quitting my job. And editing Heart Handmade does not make things easier... I see so many amazing things on a daily basis, but sometimes I just can't help myself. I probably buy one thing a month (when I'm "good") and have been making a conscious effort to buy presents from indie artists (inspired by Melissa).
Scores...Blue and cream Toile tunic top from Katsai
How does it make you feel?
unique, comfortable, happy, proud, up-for-anything
What made you buy it?
I interviewed Bonnie for the blog and immediately fell in love with her tops, but wasn’t quite lucky enough to snag one... until one day I just happened to go on her site and LUCKY ME! One in my size.
