Checking in with Emerson Made

Jun 23, 2011

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.

Polyvore Set Here.

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.

    Belle, thanks for linking to this site. It's new to me and their stuff is adorable; it's extra-cool that the items are made in the USA. Do you know if they offer discount codes, and where/how to find them if they do? I'm totally lusting after a few items.

    I love their stuff — I just wish I could afford it! I was dying to have the Trench Dress ($228) and lucked out and found a very similar dress at H&M for $35.

    Belle,
    Do you think they would offer your readers a special discount since you did such a good plug for them on the world wide web?!

The Mondays: July 22, 2024

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours. So we packed Sloane up for a visit to a local llama farm, stopped by the pool, went for coffee, etc. Few things are as funny as watching a 23-month old feed carrots to a ravenous rescue […]

Yes, it’s July 22nd, but there is a lot of living to do between now and the cooler weather. And given that three-digit temperatures are becoming shockingly common, you need something light. Enter the striped linen set. Wear it now, wear it next summer.
