Etsy Love!

It's official. I think Etsy is the greatest site ever. I fell in love with Etsy while wedding planning last year. It is an AH-MAZING resource for brides! I went a little Etsy-crazy, but found so many great items at great prices. Etsy is perfect for finding unique items, DIY solutions and looks for less. It is also perfect for the extra busy bride who would love to DIY, but just cannot pull it off for everything - which was totally me! (Look for an upcoming post featuring all my Etsy wedding vendors - they were all fantastic!)  

Luckily for me, my Etsy obsession can continue, as it is also one of my go-to sites for budget-friendly jewelry and decor. Once a month I plan to feature some Etsy finds and favorite vendors. This post will focus on my current favorites for trendy jewelry items.


I have featured Gigglosophy briefly before - in my very first J.Crew Look for Less post. But, I cannot do a post on my current favorite Etsy vendors for jewelry without including this shop again! Tanya is absolutely a pleasure to work with and the products are gorgeous and quality items! If you follow me on Instagram, you see how much wear I get out of my pavé link and spike bracelets. Here are a few of my current favorites from Gigglosophy:

(Left to Right)  Clover Bracelet - $14 // Enamel Link Bracelet - $24 // Gold Chain Link Bracelet - $10 (on sale!)

Bip and Bop

Words cannot express how much I am loving Bip and Bop right now! I love how dainty the pieces are. I am totally lacking dainty pieces in my jewelry collection right now - they are PERFECT for layering! Here are a few of my current favorites from Bip and Bop (it was hard to narrow it down to three!):

(Left to Right): Darling Bow Bracelet - $22 // Anchor Necklace - $26.25 // Carrie Bracelet - $20
(Also loving the XO necklace and the Sweethearts necklace)


I am loving all the bright colors in this shop! So many cute and on trend pieces here. This shop also has some gorgeous J.Crew looks for less! I guess I cannot just limit the J.Crew Looks for Less posts to once month, no matter how hard I try! I think they are finding me! How identical is the Jasmine necklace to the sold out J.Crew Color Drop necklace?! Still pricey, but definitely an excellent look for less! Here are a few of my current faves from GlamourMeJewels:
(Left to Right): Mollie Bracelet - $20 // Jasmine Necklace - $75 // Lilly Necklace - $29
(Also loving the Anchor bracelets and the Delia bracelet)

I just cannot say enough about Etsy! It is so much fun just to browse around online! It is also a great place to find cute and personalized gifts. And hello, monograms! Tons of cute monogrammed items on Etsy! My "Favorites" is jam-packed with items that I love and have my eye on! I see so many fun Etsy posts in my future...

Are you an Etsy shopper? I would love to hear about your Etsy purchases and favorite shops!
