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?

Velma

In full treasury form here- http://www.etsy.com/treasury/Nzg2NjUxN3w1Mzg5MTEwMjM/velma?index=4

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

Daphney

For the original preppy boy…

Freddy

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

It’s Harvest Time- Outfit Me Etsy!

With Thanksgiving coming in a few days, this post is to give you some ideas get those preparations in order. It’s a bit longer than others as there were too many different things to consider, and believe me I didn’t hit them all or include all the nifty things I found. But here we go.
First, You might as well be sure to dress functional and cute as you cook. So you’ll need an apron. Check these out

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.

Primarily Getting Stuff Done… Outfit Me Etsy!

I started this outfit-me post withe this apron by bebeandalice on Etsy:

I think it’s quite neat. The shop is certainly one to check out and the photography is neat. I’m not sure I can build on it much better than they already did in their photography but here it goes…
I went for stuff that seemed comfortable enough to get things done, relax but would still be cute with neutrals and primaries.

What can I say I adore armwarmers :). They allow for the flexibility I want in the constantly fluxuating temperatures. I often wear them with my jackets in the fall the cover that space when jacket sleeves ride up. You can fold them back or bring them forward over your hands. And I love the looks and intrigue you get when you take them off in front of ppl for the first time.

These look comfy and interesting. The shop has a wide variety of them if your looking for a different color.

The shirt was one of the most difficult parts. I had a lot of contenders and settled with this one since it was simple and could be dressed up or down.

These simple earrings match the apron, were classy and didn’t seem like they would get in the way.
