This month's designer is Twirls and Twigs. The owner/creator/designer of Twirls and Twigs is Shawna Dalton and her clothes are amazing for many reasons -
As described on their website - "Shawna turns sustainable fibers, designer leftovers and recycled cotton into trimmed and bountiful whimsy that reconciles style with substance." I couldn't have said it better:) And who doesn't love adorable, unique clothing that's green too?
I bought our first pieces from this designer a few years ago from an online boutique but then discovered shortly thereafter that Nordstrom's was also carrying the brand. I still purchase mostly through online retailers because the selection is much greater and I can usually find the sizes that I need easily. Due to the fact that most of the materials are left-overs or recycled fabrics there are often limited quantities of each piece, which makes them all the more unique. I have also discovered that the same style of a specific piece may have slight and barely noticeable variations, like different buttons or a different color trim, but I actually like that about this brand. I love the uniqueness of each piece and the fact that someone can take scraps of leftover materials and make such a beautiful piece of clothing. I wish that I were that handy and creative! Being able to sew would probably be helpful too. Maybe someday...
