My new favorite goods from Boston designers:
T-shirts by Etcetera Media. Kelly Smith and Chris Grimley are the team behind these super soft tees. I love the unique color combinations, the unexpected graphics and the shape. They aren't boxy, or too tight and they hit at just the right spot on jeans so you feel sexy without showing off skin. Go to www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5079340 and scroll down to see tees for sale. Or go to Etcetera Media's website at www.etceteramedia.com to learn more about the designers and see the other fabulous goods for sale. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the duo will be at the next South End Open Studios (I think it will be sometime around the holidays) where I first fell in love with their tees inside the studio at 46 Waltham St. #305.
The bag is by M. Flynn, the company headed by sisters Megan and Moira Flynn. Go to www.mflynnjewelry.com to shop other bags and see the fabulous jewelry designed by the sisters. Here are the reasons I love this bag.
1. The color goes with everything and yet is striking enough to get compliments from strangers on the street. People literally stop me weekly to ask where I got my bag. I love being able to say that it is from a Boston designer. I feel very in-the-know.
2. The Argentinean leather is really soft and yet durable. My bag one time was the target for a nasty sea gull and his present came off without leaving its mark on the leather. Ha ha!
3. The bag on a daily basis is stuffed with my bulging wallet (filled with receipts, business cards, credit cards and very little money) my journal, a book and/or magazine, my keys, 8 lipsticks, 3 pens, my digital camera and a ton of change and it never looks or feels too heavy.
