Friday has come around again, and here I am, with another blog entry ready!
This time, I'm gonna show off a shop that is gonna seem like a godsend for those of you undergoing this lovely new cold wave in Europe, and also for anyone who loves cute accessories!
Let me introduce you to the super crafty Erin and her shop for her crocheted accessories: Julian Bean! Here you can find all sort of warm & cozy wearables like hats, cowls, scarves, ear warmers... all hand crocheted and all custom made in the yarn colour(s) of your choice!
I got myself her Button Slouch Hat, and since you can choose from 24 different yarn colours and a bunch of buttons, after considerable pondering, I went for the eggplant with one black oval and one white star buttons! Erin has great customer service, and it's quite the fast crocheter! In less than two weeks my hat was made and received! Shipping only took a lil over a week, and coming from the US!
I'm absolutely in love with my hat! The eggplant colours is so rich and vibrant, the hat looks great whether you wear it more slouch or not, and the different coloured buttons give it a sort of yin & yang feel & look to it!
Well, I love it so much that I already ordered another hat (cranberry with just one star button) that is sitting at home waiting for me to return home to Spain, and I think I've finally decided on the colour for a button-less hat, finally! Btw, if you check her Etsy shop, you can see yours truly in the custom hat's listing!
Not only this hat is fashionable but it's also super warm, cozy and comfy to wear! I took it with me to our trip to the mountains in Darjeeling, and I sure can tell you I (and my ears) were truly grateful of having it with us!
One last note, remember how I said that Erin is super crafty? Well, she has another two Etsy shops, one called Take Two Skate Shop, where she sells eco-friendly items like jewellry, coaster, pins, magnets and more, made out of old & broke skateboards, a rather cool shop! And the other, it's her original shop, Little Momma Erin, where you can find all kinds of cool geeky accessories!
