Instagram is an ever increasing source of inspiration for me. It seems almost everyday I come across a new designer, artist, maker or fellow style enthusiast that’s up to something awesome. It can be overwhelming but I try to take it all in one feed at a time.
Today I’m sharing two of my favourite finds on Instagram. The first is Elizabeth Suzann (@elizsuzann), a self taught clothing designer based in Nashville, Tennessee. Every piece in her collection has an effortless elegance about it. Her choice in materials, attention to detail and focus on practical and comfortable designs make Elizabeth’s signature aesthetic one that’s inherently subtle but impossible to miss. I’ve followed her for some time and it’s been a pleasure to see the Elizabeth Suzann brand grow and flourish. For one obvious reason, I couldn’t resist making the ‘Lee Crop’ a new addition to my summer wardrobe. Other reasons were the perfect cut and handwoven fabric from Shutters and Shuttles (another great maker in Nashville). I wore it out on a warm Friday date night the day it arrived, again the following afternoon with a denim midi skirt and can’t wait to take it for a spin with dark wash high rise skinnies. Don’t deny yourself a peek at the full Elizabeth Suzann collection here.
My second lucky Insta discovery is the lovely Mary of Millay Vintage (@millayvintage). Mary has an incredible feed that will instantly lighten your day and keep you entranced for hours. Mary is also one of the sweetest and most humble friends I’ve made on instagram which makes following her success even more enjoyable. Not to mention the fact that she’s a total babe with amazing taste, an adorable pup named General Gazpacho and an expertly curated online vintage shop. Her site recently got a facelift and when I went to have a peek I fell madly in love with this perfect little 1970s cross body bag from Italy. It was highly reasonable at just $38 and in incredible condition. As soon as it arrived, which was very quickly, I switched my wallet over and trotted out the door. There are so many other delightful finds on Millay Vintage that you simply must peruse!
