Etsomnia™ 339: Feeling Springy

13 Comments

Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

I realize it’s been a while since I posted an edition of Etsomnia™. I’m sorry, my dears. It’s been a rough month, and I just wasn’t feeling the funny. I decided I have moped around enough, and I’m going to try to get back on the horse. Today, I was inspired by the beginning of spring, so it’s spring fashion week!

For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts!

They call it upcycled, but is there such a thing as downcycled?
This makes me miss my waist! By MrWaterNewYork
Don’t get me wrong. I am excited about spring. Just not 65-multi-colored-googly-eyes-headdress excited.
While it’s not my colors, I do love a retro-inspired floral! By MindGone
Well, it does make me want to spring back…
Proof that spring prints don’t need to be floral! By AshtonsClosetCo
You know how “floral” dresses can remind us of the gardens of our youth? This one reminds me I forgot to mulch last fall.
I think I prefer leaves to flowers! By DHollyDesignsLLC
“Romantic” spring top. Looks to me like nip slips and bedbugs…
The maker freely admits this skirt is made from recycled napkins and handkerchiefs. Would it have killed her to wash them first?
Werk! By LittleLoveBtqUS
Doilies are one of those things that are never going to catch on, no matter how hard you try.

  1. The mid-century style dresses have me swooning. I especially love that indigo one. A number of these made me think of post-apocalyptic cosplay. Is there a market for that?

    I am sorry about the emotionally fraught time you are going through. I hope that writing your blog has been useful in helping you take each day one at a time.

  2. The little girl with the unicorn horn pointing right at her….I guess they were just going for the ‘shoes match the unicorn’ look.

  4. The V-Neck Hepburn Style Pleated Dress (second pic I think) is selling fast and low stock. You should receive a commission! I love the rainbow stripes as well!
