Shoutout for new fun blog!! - Trousseaux to Treasure

If you're into independent designers and are not adverse to shopping -or atleast window shopping- online, then you have to check out the fun new blog Trousseaux to Treasure.

Dreamt up by Janaina from Olilo Designs at Etsy, and Renee from Cocoapod at Etsy, both have been working hard on getting things together on the Trousseaux to Treasure Flickr group, ready for the official launch of the blog just last week.

In their own words, "Trousseaux to treasure was created not only to invigorate our fashion minds but also to offer a wonderful view into the indie design world. For people who are longing the perfect outfit, or just lacking inspiration."

Janaina and Renee invite us all to enjoy virtual outfits put together by group and blog members. They also plan to feature indie designer interviews, offer discount coupons and Shoutouts to new designers on the blog.
But, in my opinion, the best part of all is that we can all join in the fun, window shopping for the perfect outfit for that special -or not so special- occasion and submit it to the Flickr group for consideration for the blog!

Here's an outfit I put together and that was already featured on the blog! It was sooooooo much fun putting it all together ;P

And, ofcourse, the details of where to find all these great pieces...

- tshirt from circularaccessories
- ring from tigerlillyshop
- earrings from scorpienna
- bag from lindasfiberarts
