The Etsy Saga: Auroras & Sirenas

On Dani: Auroras & Sirenas skirt (contact the shop for a custom set of your own!), vintage bustier (similar style here), Miista shoes c/o Fortyeight (similar styles here and here), H&M tank top (similar style here) and earrings (similar styles here and here)

On Bianca: Auroras & Sirenas top (contact the shop for a custom set of your own!), Cameo skirt c/o Mendocino (similar styles here and here), vintage necklace (similar styles here and here), Cheap Monday shoes (similar styles here and here)

Danielle and I love to shop. That’s a fact. We also enjoy the internet — a conclusion that is obvious given that we met on the World Wide Web (an extensive story that you can find here). When we put those two together, we have online shopping: a thoroughly rewarding experience that may or may not take up 100% of our free time.

As long-time vintage lovers and jewelry/clothing designers, we love everything Etsy stands for, so naturally, we jumped at the opportunity to partner with Etsy Canada on this endeavour. Many people seem to think the site’s a marketplace for weird useless shit or a hub for craft connoisseurs a.k.a. old ladies. And although it can be both/either of those things, it’s an endless wonderland for us, hence the three-part series we’ve embarked on: The Etsy Saga.

Now, there’s a lot of awesome stuff on Etsy we’d love to put our dolla dolla bills into – including 90’s footwear and cray cray statement jewels – but being self-proclaimed twins who spend every waking moment together in cross-coordinated outfits, it only made sense to have 3 two-piece outfits in silly prints/patterns delivered to our door immediately. Yesterday we rocked a crop top and skirt combo straight outta Switzerland, handmade by a lovably girly shop called Auroras & Sirenas. Not only does supporting handmade mean directly supporting the designers and creators (as opposed to big ol` corporate giants), it also means each piece is just about as unique as we are.

So there you have it: The Etsy Saga part 1. Stay tuned for more coo coo crazy prints in the form of cross-coordinating outfits, and don’t forget to mozy over to Etsy for some of your own exploring. You might end up browsing til the crack of dawn, though. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
