Ladies .... go slip into your favorite cashmere sweater and gloss those lips. Now slink on over to the Etsy shop, Black Satin Shoes, and tell me if the song I Enjoy Being a Girl doesn't play in your mind for the rest of the day.
Owner, Chante Magpusao, has a self-described obsession with ribbons and bows and has channeled this love into an impressive collection of headbands, hair pins, jewelry and more. Her work has vintage charm yet is decidedly modern. Some of my top picks are the Black Rose Headband, Feather Headband, Zebra Bow Pins and her ingenious Zipper Flower Ring.
This Kilt Pin ($10) came to me neatly packaged, confection-like, in a white box wrapped in pale pink ribbon. The piece itself is made extremely well; the findings are secure, the charms are perfectly weighted and there isn't a spot of glue visible (my personal pet peeve). The best part however is that bow! The bow is handmade (we're talking about actual stitching here, people) from an almost sheer black and white striped fabric and it gives this piece a bit of an edge .... turns it into something current and chic.
Black Satin Shoes is so reasonably priced ($1.25 on the low end; $17.50 on the high end), you can afford to indulge the girl in you. And until June 21, you can afford to indulge a lot.
