Three Etsy Favorites That Are DIY Amazing!

One of our biggest procrastination habits (for the record, there are several) is scavenging Etsy for original vendors, who often blow our minds with their handmade goods up for sale. To share the love, last month we started a new column to spotlight the vendors who stand out, and to celebrate people who truly know the meaning of DIY. We’ve asked fashion and lifestyle blogger Emma, of The Emma Edition, to dish on our current Etsy obsessions. We promise, this month's picks go above and beyond. Read on!

By Rachel Rose — After working for years in print artistry, NYC-based designer Rachel Rose finally decided it was time to branch out and start her own clothing line. Since its inception in January 2011, her line has producing multiple collections consisting of beautiful, billowy shirts and dresses that are ideal pieces for prancing around town. Added bonus: Rachel hand dyes all of her fabrics with a nouveau-tie-dye technique reminiscent of Rorschach tests (you know, just like the therapist uses), don’t you think?
Price range: $127 - $204
Lana Woroniecka
Lana Woroniecka — Riot Grrrls unite! And come check out Lana Woroniecka and her colorful, anatomical earrings and necklaces — both feminist and fashion statements. By sculpting her jewelry charms from clay, Lana uses the different body symbols (fists, lips, brains) featured throughout her line to empower women and promote body positivity and self-love in a kitschy way. Uterus brooch available upon request (seriously).
Price range: $4 - $35
Moxie and Oliver
Moxie and Oliver — From the looks of Moxie and Oliver, you'd never guess that designer Caitlin McNamara’s day job involves working at a law firm. Feeling constrained by the monotony of corporate wear, Caitlin began moonlighting two years ago and created these beautifully handcrafted, feminine-yet-rustic leather accessories (usually from the designs she doodles during meetings). The bags come in all different shapes and designs, from clutches to totes, and feature everything from Dia de los Muertos skulls to florals and honey combs.
Price range: $15- $659
