Flavors To Follow – EmersonMade


I’m giving away the Bakerella Cake Pop Book, Chalkboard Sheets, a Diana or Holga toy camera, $25 to Anthropologie/Spotted Moth/Shop Ruche/Mod Cloth (winner’s choice) and $25 to any of my sponsors!  Click here to enter!

Do you see this beauty of a clutch?  It’s EmersonMade.  Are you familiar with the brand?  If not, you’re about to get acquainted!  Oh and if you want to win the above Goldie clutch, then head on over to Bon Bon Rose Girls as they are celebrating their second blogiversary with a whole lotta giveaways!  And while you’re there, you can win $25 credit to my etsy shop too!

If you read my post from yesterday, you’ll know that I’ve taken on a challenge where I can hardly do any shopping until May… so if any of you people would be so kind to buy me the following items, I’d be eternally grateful! πŸ™‚

I am in love with the pattern/color of this Travelling Coat! I’ve been looking for a new warm coat with brown tones, perfect for the frigid weather we have right now!

And isn’t The Ribbons Dress so adorable?  I’m a HUGE fan of polka dots.  Pair it with a jacket, tights, and boots and it’s perfect for winter!

If you can’t afford the first two, then The Poppy! pin will do!

Or Ballet Dahlias to dress up my shoes! πŸ™‚

If you don’t have the money just yet to buy me the above, don’t you worry, EmersonMade is coming out with their Spring Line soon so you can start saving up now!

I am loving the outside color and even the inside color of this Spring Topper Coat! Perfect for a chilly Spring day!

Goldie & Stripes Reversible Day Bag – It’s got stripes, it’s got yellow + grey, and it’s reversible… need I say more?

I totally thought this was a dress at first, but it’s actually two pieces, DerbyPleat Little Blouse with The Versitile YesSkirt, so perfectly paired together!

And The Trench Dress? I could think of sooo many occasions to where this to… to work, on a date, to a blogger meetup, to the beach…

And finally the Tiny Stars Yes Dress… it has pockets, totally saying YES to this dress!!

Have I made you a fan yet if you weren’t one already?  Seriously, everything that EmersonMade makes is oh-so-lovely!  They even have a Men’s, Wedding, and For the Home section too!

Well, another weekend is upon us, thank goodness!  And again, I’m just astounded by the response to my ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY GIVEAWAY!  You guys make me soo happy!  If you haven’t entered yet, you still have until Sunday evening to get your entries in.  And don’t forget to visit that post for some awesome sponsor discounts as well.

    There are so many items from emersonmade that I’m coveting right now. At the top of the list are the lovely Pumpkin Patent Heels. The Travelling Coat is also quite gorgeous and how perfect would that cute Day Bag be for spring?!

    I know I already tweeted you this, but I’m so excited to order a pair of earrings from Allora Handmade. I’m just waiting for the color I want to get back in stock. Her designs are beautiful.

    I hope you have fun at your friend’s party! I think it’s cute that they’re celebrating a 100 day birthday for the baby. We don’t have anything planned, but I’m off Monday and will be fine if we just relax all weekend. Have a good one!
