Emerson Made started as a small, wife and husband owned company making floral sashes, pins and hair clips for women who wanted a little whimsy in their lives. After a few years, it has grown to include apparel, shoes, accessories and jewelry. So I thought it might be time to check in on their progress and show you a few of my favorite pieces from their new online shop.
Seersucker Blouse: I’m not really in to seersucker (see post here), but I love this blouse. The puffed sleeves, the folded ruffles around the collar, and the flattering scoop neckline are all adorable. This would be so cute with white separates (jeans, pants, skirts, shorts) or with a red skirt…and wouldn’t you know it, I just happen to own a red skirt! She also makes the same style of blouse in a dotted print for those of you who aren’t into stripes.
Gold Pendants: These gold coin pendants are adorable. There are six to choose from: a lion, a butterfly, a balloon, a dragonfly, a four leaf clover and, my favorite, a bird. Some of the coins even contain inspirational sayings. The bird pendant is labeled:”semper ad meliora” or “Always Towards Better Things.” My one, small complaint about the pendants is the quality of the chain, but that is easily replaced.
Dotted Skirt: How cute is this rainbow-dotted skirt with scalloped hem? It would be so adorable with a white tee or with a brightly-colored blouse and sandals. I’d recommend sewing the pockets flat if you’re pear shaped like I am. It helps cut down on the bulk.
Poppy Corsage: Of Emerson’s original pieces, the poppy corsage is still my favorite. I love how bold and cheerful it is. It’s the perfect accent to a simple striped top. You could also pin it to a belt or the collar of your winter coat for a little something extra.
