Scooby Dooby New – the Etsyfication of those meddling kids

Out of cartoons and boredom we get posts like this. What would a modern day Velma look like? Let us consider the etsyfication of those meddling kids. These collections bring together things they might choose with things that maintain the look and feel of the characters… So I bring you the Meddling Kids Collections- Modern Collections inspired by those meddling kids. Are you a Daphney or a Velma, a Fred or a Shaggy?  And yes, Scooby is missing for the moment…

Velma- Luckily nerdy is quite in and Velma would likely be quite trendy. Who doesn’t love a smart chick in glasses and tons of orange?

For the fashionista who loves purple. Orchid is a top fall color so I guess Daphney’s got that one down…

For the original preppy boy…

And for the  totally laid back dude whose best bud is a great dane…

Garden Gray- Outfit Me Etsy

Finally another Outfit Me Post. I think this one started as I was looking to finish another one and got side tracked by this corset in favorites somewhere and started all over again:

I love jackets, tiny, fitted, well made, long short. And this is the jacket I’ve got for this outfit. I like the color and the texturing.

This may be my favorite part of the whole thing and could probably build numerous Outfit posts around it. It has a key word title a few lines long you can read in the link. It’s got everything I love about neckpieces with elements of necklace, choker, scarf, cuff built into a beautifully styled piece.

Also foudn this necklace, which I think could work. I’m a fan of the tiers. And really this shop had several pieces I’ve been looking at for this post and you’ll likely see some of them in the future.

Of course, it is Fall, and that means arm warmers! I like this style, no fingers, only thumb hole, good length and knit.

I’m not sure what they mean about this one being green. It looks gray or black on my screen. The lace detail is nice. It stood out on the search page and the black and white goes with the corset so I’ll go with it.

This cuff is currently featured with me in a treasury by AmaliaVersaci here and it caught my eye immediately.

Green! What a Statement!

Another new piece.
I saw these bright green shell disc shaped beads when I was out and got them, not having any real idea what I’d do with them. But, for some reason the color green they are was just appealing. In the same trip I got these glass/foil tube beads which are really a little radioactive looking.

When I playing with supplies I thought I’d just make a nice simple bracelet out of the discs with simple spacers, maybe tiny silver flat spacers or gold seed beads. I suggested the bracelet idea to my husband who said ‘necklace’. I’m not sure how much thought went into the statement initially but I decided to take the challenge and make a necklace instead. Only having 9 of the circles, I knew I needed to mix them with something. Luckily, I found the little green stone cube beads I’d had around for a few weeks now.

I’m pesonally really into big, tiered, intricate statement necklaces so I started thinking how I could make this a necklace I might wear. I started laying it out on my new sterling silver eye pins (or sterling silver plated? I’ll have to check). I had a few different arrangements with the discs but the symmetrical graduated one stuck. Then I added the radioactive tube beads, which my husband appropved of. I was still skeptical of the stone beads and tried swarovski pearls, but they just didnt look right. I found some of my tiny periodot czech glass and that coupled with the stone beads completed it. And a recently purchased, very modern looking, rodium plated clasp finished it off. So much green! And here it is:

What a statement!

It’s always tricky for me to make necklaces, especially ones like this. I’m still figuring out length, how far apart to place the dangling pieces, how far aroudn to let the dangling parts go… But I think this one is alright, at least on me :). I’m really happy with the way it falls, which is always tricky too.
It is very intensely green, but I think it works. I feel like it turned out pretty wearable.
