Guest Gifter: Happy Place Design

I met this girl named Kelli. She’s pretty rad and has this awesome sense of indie style. I asked her to share some of her fashion sense with us for today’s gift guide.

Have a Cozy Crocheted Christmas!

Who knew so many fashionable accessory pieces could be made with just a few skeins of yarn and a crochet hook? It’s such an exciting craft once you get over the assumption that all things crocheted are made by cat loving grannies making doilies and pot warmers. But you don’t have to know HOW to crochet to adorn a trendy oversize cowl or flashy necklace. It’s no secret that Etsy is a great place get started when shopping for the perfect crocheted winter accessory for yourself and the ones you love. Don’t be stingy now, your friends and family deserve to be fashionistas, too! Think that maybe someone on your Christmas list deserves a little spice in their wardrobe? Here are the details to get you started!

Enter, the super, oversize cowl: Etsy seller “SprattersandJayne” has several super, oversize cowls in a variety of colors with oversize buttons from $78 to $115

As you can see, they are so snuggly and warm that they make me want to take a nap inside them. 🙂
