~This is a Fashionista Event. I was given a promotional item to review by 9thandElm.com to share my opinions about the website. Opinions and stories are my own.~
This past spring a new independent fashion shop came alive. With the desire to bring the best of handmade and independent designers from around the web to one place, Clay and Elly Bethune designed 9thandelm.com. A beautiful and easy to navigate shop that showcases the hottest trends in handmade and independent designs; chosen exclusively by their buyers with deals that would make any fashionista extremely happy, even the littlest ones!
9thandelm.com showcases their shops in two ways. You can choose a shop by their photo on the front page OR you can choose to Shop by Category or Featured Events. If you place your mouse over the chosen designers photo, you will see how long that shop will be open. In the example below, Tiffany Rose Designs will close in 6 days & 12 hours.
Once you select your designer, it will bring up each item that they have available. If something is sold out then you will see a SOLD OUT across the item’s icon. Otherwise, you will be brought to a page that shares a bit about the item you chose and if applicable, sizes and colors.
I chose 3 items to review from 9thandelm.com! Of course the adorable The Mia Headband from Couture Tutus was a must have. My assistant Katrina has such a sassy and sweet little princess that I had to get it for her. I mean, just look at how cute this is!
The adorable flower measures 2-2.5in and works for everyday to formal wear. The lovely bright popping yellow makes for bright smiles and it really warms your heart.
The second item I chose to review was the Blue/Black/White Stripes Maxi Skirt from Jupe de Abby, a shop founded under the principal of helping women find decent modern clothing.
It’s made of 100% Polyester and feels like you are walking wrapped in warm air. I love, love, love this skirt. I personally wear it with boots and dress it down a bit in long flowing cardigans, but it can be easily spiced up for a hot date with pumps and halter top!
The third designer I chose from was Theresa Rose Designs. It’s a beautiful dainty matte Gold Infinity Necklace that caught my eye and my heart at the same time.
The pendant is approximately 1″, measuring 17″ with a 1″ extension. I get a lot of attention when wearing it. The gold brings out the warm tones in your skin and catches the light. If you aren’t into chains or gold, Theresa Rose Designs also offers the same pendant in silver and on solid chokers.
The work of these designers is incredible and the shipping was exemplary by everyone! I was so stunned by how fast things arrived, one item within the same week that it was ordered! Though, it obviously varies on location, I still have to say that it impressed me and gave high marks to 9thandelm.com for their astounding service.
I love shopping independent designers, especially handmade items. The care and personal detail that goes into each product is beautiful. I haven’t seen a single shop on 9thandelm.com so far that I haven’t wanted to shop at! The fact that the prices are beyond reasonable makes it one of the greatest places for lovers of fashion.
