byjoselienby Joselien – Online Shop for everything vintage

I discovered this very cute Dutch online shop while browsing around on Google for retro magnets. I found it quite strange that I didn’t find what I was looking for on any of the German sites, therefore I had to branch out. Note to self, Dutch people do it better!

Once the shop unfolded its hidden gems on my computer screen, I had to contain myself as to only order magnets and not numerous other adorable handmade vintage items from Joselien’s shop. I was tempted by the cutest coin purses, very girly cell phone cases, colorful notebooks, handmade jewelry and the list goes on. Make sure to set yourself a budget when visiting this online shop, otherwise you’ll end up stuffing your shopping basket with the entire range of products. You can tell, Joselien is one crafty person and her attention to detail is stunning. Upon delivery, I opened the envelope only to find the magnets were wrapped in chevron patterned wrapping paper, which I absolute LOVE. I heart EVERYTHING chevron for that matter! Joselien even added a personal note with my order, which I thought was a very nice touch.


flamingoThe Tomkat Studio – Dreaming of Summer Flamingo Style


Honestly, what’s not to love about Kim Stoegbauer’s modern designs?  This truly is one beautiful success story! Unable to keep up with orders being made on her Etsy shop, she decided to take her designs digital and opened an online shop. Now she’s a renowned party stylist, blogger and her work is constantly being featured on US TV networks and magazines. She is quite the role model for me, as she has grown a very reputable social media following over the years. Other than that I am very intrigued by her designs, as she incorporates just the right amount of pink, gold, chevron and all things trendy, and I simply love browsing around her online shop for inspiration.

So, if you are looking to impress at the next party you might be hosting, make sure to stop by and look around. The best thing ever, is that international shipping is available; just contact her for a quote. Right now, I am all about flamingos. Turns out, Kim might have just the right ideas in store for me. Sorry, gotta run and get inspired, her Pinterest Account is also worth checking out!
