Coastal Chic

How is it possible not to be obsessed with Etsy. The online retailer is the cause of at least two sleepless nights a week for me. I love stumbling upon new brands, especially when they're creating incredibly unique pieces that instantly stand out from my stash of Forever 21 goodies. During one of my recent late night Etsy searches, I came across this charming necklace from Derng by Derng. The rope to chain transition provides the perfect amount of unique detail that I always look for when selecting my next fabulous accessory. (You can see my necklace here) I mixed my new piece with some of my other favorites like my yellow and white Melinda Bamboo bangles and star fish ring from PoshLocket. For a pop of color I added a pink H&M blazer to my Madison colorblock shift dress from Rachel Zoe's Spring 2012 collection, which you can see here. I adore the bold black and white stripes that jazz up this classically simple style. So Etsy lovers, I urge you all to skim through Derng by Derng's amazing pieces and start adding to your collection.
