I recently found out about 9th & Elm, an online store that features handmade and independent designers, and I’ve become obsessed. I was given the opportunity to pick out some goodies, which I then modeled around Central Park (shout out to my MIL Roni for taking the pics!), and I still check the update emails every day and browse the site whenever I have the chance.
You’ll find your favorite indie designers and Etsy shops, and a bunch of folks and products you’ve never seen before, all for a great price. Above, you’ll see me wearing:
- “Mother of Dragons” tank top from ClassicSciFi (No longer on the site, but there are other fun graphic tanks available!)
This shirt is ridiculously comfy and looks great with jeans or as a workout top. I got a few compliments from strangers the first day I wore it around!
- Scarfbag from Go For the Throat (No longer on the site, but there are other hidden pocket scarves available!)
It’s a scarf. With a secret hidden zippered pocket. It’s AMAZING. Plus, the fabric is super soft and cozy. This is going to be my go-to scarf this Fall and Winter!
- Cupcake Lip Balm from Ollie and Max Soap Co.
This organic, vegan lip balm smells and tastes just like a vanilla cupcake, and keeps your lips nice and soft. It’s the perfect size for your purse or pocket as well!
The selection on the site changes daily, but you’ll always find clothing, accessories, housewares, jewelry, and gifts. Prices vary just as much as the designers–you can get super inexpensive and super high quality items right next to each other. The collection is well curated and fun to look through–it was tough narrowing down what items I was going to add to my first order, and I can’t wait to place another!
