Fashion Fridays with Etsy, I Love Lucy

There's no question Lucille Ball is a fashion icon. She was an easy pick for this weeks Fashion Friday. The following finds are treasures I found on Etsy:

The Dress:

I found this perfect Polka Dot gem at YesterDaze for $49.50
The dress has the same polka dot pattern found in the inspiration photo. Not to mention the model strongly resembles to a modern Lucy.

All four of these dresses are by Artsy Shopper for $35.00 - $40.00 each.
I liked each dress better then the last and would not, or could not, choose just one. Each dress has an element taken from our inspiration Lucy dress. It may be the collar, bright pattern, full skirt or the sleeves.

All good outfits need a great pair of shoes. Here are a couple I found via Etsy

These fab shoes can be found at The Dusty Dog
The best part....they're on sale for only $25.50
Want even more good news? US shipping!

The beautiful peep toes shown above can be found at Exquisite Bones for only $25.00

The inspiration photo doesn't show a purse but I thought I would feature a great find non the less....
This great purse can be found at Fox And His Friends for only $20!

There you have it, a few great treasures from Etsy.
Thank you for reading our blog and have a Happy Day!

The movie "9 to 5" is a classic. An iconic movie because of the story line, acting, and the clothes. The three woman portrayed in this movie are strong, independent, and sexy. What woman wouldn't want to emulate that? The outfits of this 1980 movie are worth recreating.
By now you know the drill: I create the look of Judy, Violet and Doralee shopping only on Etsy. Let's begin....
