Our latest sponsor Pithitude is the outlet that designer and illustrator Tamara Kraft needs for her whimsical and deviant sense of humor. We all get to reap the benefits of this outlet-in-the-form-of-an-Etsy-shop, with super-awesome goods and gifts! Ninja squirrels, cursing ostriches, and coffee fish poop… All these things and more you will see as I introduce you to my new favorite Etsy shop.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of clothes posts.
I have a great love for fun t-shirts. My husband is the same way, but he faces one hell of challenge:
Last week we talked about fashion for kids. Now, let's talk about fashion for big kids! (That's us.) Our sponsor Camden Town is an online store, devoted to promoting original, talented, emerging designers in all fields from fashion to home decor. We love their philosophy of promoting independent designers and original talent.
When I was in college, I worked for The Disney Store. They taught me this thing called "The Disney Fold" … a laundry folding method that I use to this day.
Baby Blastoff's styles and colors are carefully chosen by Emily to work for any gender, while still being super-fun and hip. Emily's mission is to create an alternative to the "pink is for girls, blue is for boys" paradigm in children's clothing. As a life-long tomboy who was forced into girly pink-y princess clothing growing up, I raise my glass of whiskey to you, Emily. Fight the good fight!
Remember when we wondered what the next style and home decor trend would be? Portlandia nailed it to the freaking wall with "put a bird on it." But, after doing a little online shopping on Modcloth, it's seems to me that foxes are the new birds.
What does the fox say? It says "buy me."
I'd love some help finding plus size exercise clothes that aren't the same old Boring Black Basics.
I go to the gym and I'm in a roller derby league, and I'd prefer to have something a bit more fun to wear! My shoes and skates are colourful, my headband has a funky pattern, and my yoga mat is adorable… but the only clothing options I've found in my size seem to be really bland. Thanks!
This is mildly embarrassing because I like to think I have better things to think/write about, but whatever. I like playing dress-up. I like street-wear costumes. It’s fun. I come from deeply humble fashion roots. My parents are hippies for godsake, and I grew up in a mix of dirty hand-me-downs my parents dug up, cheap stuff from Sears, and frilly dresses gifted from my grandma. I preferred the frilly dresses, and my mom had to bribe me to wear pants by telling me that they made me look tall.
