spotlight: Emily Ryan

I am swooning over these super cute dresses by Emily Ryan on Etsy. The design and materials are very organic in nature and the cozy materials (cotton sweatshirt and soft cotton jersey) make these frocks a great choice for the wintry weather. Pair them with leggings, a chunky piece of jewelry and boots for a chic look.

um... I'm not supposed to be shopping for things. Quit tempting me. Sorry It's been a while that I've read these. so many good, happy and cute posts of late. I think you might want to consider a shout out to our good friends at Winstons Market and Violet. May they rest in piece :)

Thanks so much, Mary! I agree that her dresses are amazing!

Hi Elly! We could do a post on Winston's, Violet AND Sweet Occaions... a sort of "in memoriam." So sad to see all these places shuttered. I think the only way to feel better is by buying new dresses! ;)
xo, kristin

I am Emily Ryan's current intern and she is awesome. Such a humble, down-to-earth person who is good at what she does. She works hard on each garment just to get it right. I get to sew some of her prototypes and orders and let me tell you, with the amount of time each one takes, they are worth every penny.
