Etsy Store of the Week – RoverDog

I’m so sorry for getting this week’s Etsy Store of the Week feature out so late in the day! This past week has been exhausting both mentally and physically for me and I needed the day to recharge. In order to recharge I stayed up way too late last night playing with a new skill (screen printing), slept in way too late, watched a football game at the bar with hubby and then saw the new Harry Potter movie! It’s been awesome and much-needed. So now I’m finally sitting down for long enough to tell you about this week’s featured store: RoverDog which makes the most stylish coats for dogs that I have ever seen!

RoverDog creates her stylish pet clothing in Toronto and then ships all over the world. And while I’m not usually that big on dressing up my dogs (Ok, except for the holidays!) we now have a wonderful little chihuahua that has decided that mildly chilly is just too cold for her. So on my journey to find something comfortable, warm and not too frilly for Bean, I found it can be frustratingly difficult to find what I want in a dog coat. And then came along RoverDog! This is what I want, and isn’t this dog just dapper?

Taking a look through the shop, I also stumbled upon a cute little number for my nephew-dog-in-law, a yorkie owned by my very preppy and high-end business working in-laws:

And the models in this shop couldn’t be cuter!

These are made to order so if you have troubles fitting a particular dog you can get exactly what you need! And because these are made to order, the last day that you can purchase one and expect it for the holidays is December 1st, so hurry up and pick one out from RoverDog!

So do you dress up your dogs for warmth, charm or fashion? Let me know!

Etsy Store of the Week – Alis

Alis is this week’s featured Etsy Store! She offers beautiful and comfy-looking t-shirts with a wonderful feminine appeal.

My favorite feature on Etsy is the scrolling recently listed items that is found here. It’s how I end up finding new items to purchase while drinking (oops on Friday night, but I’m excited about getting those things in the mail!) and also leads me to new sellers to feature. And this shirt is how I found Alis. I love how simple the lines and colors are and also the organic feel of the design. I also LOVE that Alis has sizes and measurements to further explain what the sizes in her store are. As a larger girl, with larger boobs, t-shirt buying online is a scary thing! I don’t want to get stuck with a tent, but I would like to not show every detail of my bra!

And anyone who knows me knows that I live in t-shirts. And not just because I’m a dog walker and therefore don’t have to wear suits and blouses (I hate that word) but also because cotton is freakin’ comfortable! But I have been trying to update into a more mature look since I am a business owner and would like to not look like a college student any longer. So a dressed up, artistic and feminine shirt is the way to go! Look at these other lovelies in Alis’s shop.

I think I’m also in love with the asymmetrical designs of these shirts too. They are more visually interesting that way!

For more frilly but simple, girly but modern looks, go check out Alis on Etsy! With her high positive feedback rating, and hundreds of sales and counting, this seller is ready to make your top half gorgeous! Sorry she doesn’t make pants! 😉
