Here’s a fun DIY that my friend Tonia came up with. It’s super easy decoration for Halloween. All you need are those wooden art mannequins from IKEA and gauze. We also used our hand model to create a creepy hand (it looks real!) Set them up on your entry way table or along the snack table at you Halloween party!

I love that San Francisco has so many awesome small shops. One of my favorites is Little Paper Planes – they curate the best stuff at the spot on Valencia Street. I love supporting local businesses so one of my favorite shopping days is Small Business Saturday. It happens each year between Black Friday and Cyber Monday and is a great way to give a little boost to your neighborhood economy. This year, small businesses are encouraged to partner up with local Etsy sellers by hosting trunk shows on 11/29. This partnership will give local artisans and designers the chance to share their products in a retail setting and can also provide the shops with more foot traffic and the chance to showcase more diverse products. Every small business who participates will receive a Trunk Show Kit* to assist with the cost of supplies. Little Paper Planes is participating and I can’t wait to see the designers they’ll be featuring! If you’re interested in getting involved, get more information here!
*Merchandise is only available to eligible small businesses through 11:59 P.M. ET on 10/24/2014 or while supplies last. Limit one order per business. Subject to Merchandise Terms. See Merchandise Terms at etsy.me/
Fall is the best for dressing. We’ve been trying out the Golden Tote service for a while and really love the concept: each month, you can purchase a tote filled with a mix of items you pick and items that the Golden Tote stylists choose for you (based on your style profile.) It’s a great way to try new items and stay out of that I-have-nothing-to-wear rut. Here are some of our favorites for your party-going inspiration: Back Panel Jumpsuit, Nordic Shrug and Rustic Cape. They’re all versatile and perfect for layering in cooler weather. Do you have any fun parties coming up?
