Guest Post: Gift Yourself with The Swelle Life!

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

This holiday season, I've enlisted the help of some amazingly talented friends to help out with some guest posts for my Gift Yourself series. It's that time of year when we buy gifts for others... but this series asks bloggers what they would buy for themselves at three different price ranges: low, moderate and dream gifts.

Today's lovely guest blogger is Denise of The Swelle Life!

Name: Denise Grayson, The Swelle Life

Describe yourself and your blog: We've got a lot in common, me and Swelle. We're both very wordy and we sometimes malfunction; we like to surround ourselves with dusty blues, pinks and lilacs; nous adorons Paris; we love cupcakes - especially on Mondays; and we get all squealy over independent designers who create dreamy fashion we can actually afford, especially knitwear and those who are using recycled fabrics - ingenuity abounds!

Gifts...

I need look no further than the independent designers I know and love, and having to choose only three is truly painful, even when daydreaming!

Under $100:


NOÉMIAH Anne feather and chain necklace - so cool and so beautiful.

$100-$499:


Anita Quansah Roses and chiffon tunic top - a simple silhouette embellished with lush textures.

$500+:


Wendy Brandes Edburga poison ring - now where else are you going to find something like this? And each with the story of history's spunky broad who inspired it!

Thanks, Denise! What do you think of her "swelle" finds? Have a happy Wednesday!!
