It is my pleasure and a real honor to be featuring another new team member shop from the BESTeam - MsFormaldehyde. I have to admit that when I received Kelly's request to join the team and saw her shop name, I had a "hmmm..." moment. That "hmmm..." quickly turned into and "OMG, I LOVE this shop!" moment. This shop is fresh, fun, funky, and well, as my title says - uncommonly cute! Kelly creates jewelry and accessories in a variety of nouveau nostalgic and modern themes that include goth, Polynesian/Tiki, Burlesque, and Day of the Dead among so many others! Here are just a few of the awesome treats you'll find at MsFormaldehyde!
Perfect for Dia de Los Muertas fashion themes, this Turquoise Skull Green Monarch Butterfly Barrette blends the traditional sugar skull motif with the transformational symbolism of the butterfly for a touch of festive color! Kelly has quite of few similar items, but I personally love this color combination!
There's no doubt that Sally Rand and Gypsy Rose Lee defined the late years of bawdy burlesque and their routines wouldn't be complete without their feathery finery. Well, women are taking a second look at the allure of accessories like Kelly's Vintage Inspired Feather Headband with pearl accents, and making their own updated sultry and feminine fashion statements... the nouveau nostalgic look.
I LOVE these little tropical beauties! A set of Orange Plumeria Barrettes is the perfect way to add a touch of exotic allure to long hair or an up-do. Warmer weather will be here before you know it - Now's the time to buy while the selection is at its best!
If this doesn't touch your heart, I don't know what will! I think this Pink Glitter Heart Skeleton Hand Necklace is young and trendy and just plain fun. I hope you will too!
I also hope you'll take a second (or a couple hundred) to check out MsFormaldehyde as well as Kelly's Blog and Facebook page!
