C. Wonder is the brainchild of Tory Burch‘s ex-husband, Chris. As such, his company sells apparel and homegoods that some say resemble Burch’s wares, even if he doesn’t think so. In the latest edition of This Thing That Looks Like That Thing, C. Wonder is accused of copying an elephant and balloon image by Bulgarian artist Zlatka Pirin Paneva, and slapping it onto its own line of homegoods.
We adore Etsy here at Styleite. So much so that our EIC, Verena, has furnished an entire apartment with finds from the site. We don’t just love the idea of helping talented artists to keep doing what they’re doing, we (for totally selfish reasons) love what they’re selling. So we’ve compiled a gallery of some of the best stores Etsy has to offer, as well as a list of reasons to get your cute, budget-friendly things from them instead of a fast-fashion chain.

It has been brought to our attention that for the low, low price of $200, you can own something called a sleeve scarf. A sleeve scarf is a thick, knitted scarf with a full sleeve attached, making it the perfect garment for those days when your neck and one (but not both) of your arms are cold.
There are a lot of things we all love about summer — warm nights on the beach, days spent away from work stress, and delicious seasonal fruit being chief among them. But instead of getting mad when summer showers get in the way of the sunny fun we deserve, why not turn it into an awesome accessorizing opportunity.
