Show and Tell: Margaret and Dakota

Meet Margaret, the official cutie pie behind Three Yellow Starfish, who makes adorable clothing for kids and baby. She says she was freakishly swamped with online orders this summer, but she did have a few chances to take a break and have some fun. Let's see what she did this summer.

Margaret at the Dustbowl Arts Market in Norman, Oklahoma.

Margaret's handy helper was there too!

Margaret debuted her adorable new knot dresses this summer.

She's really good at mixing fabrics and colors! This is one reason why we heart her.

Three Yellow Starfish also presented her amazing items at the White Rock Local Market, and will be at the Jingle Bash November 20th! So for all of you looking to give those little ones in your life cute little gifts, find Margaret and check out her wares.

As a nice break Margaret and her friends enjoyed some yummy
Polish dishes at For You Cafe in Plano.

Dakota, Margaret's son, Dakota was also the ring bearer at her brother-in-law's wedding.

Category Spotlight: Accessories

I love a great accessory! It can make an old sweater feel a little prettier, hide a bad hair day, and put some bling just about anywhere. A great accessory is something that can express something unique about you, or be a fun way to try a little bit of fad and fashion. Etsy Dallas is full of amazing artisans of almost any kind of accessory you can think of, and a few you probably couldn't even imagine. Check out these great Etsy Dallas members who fall in our Accessories category!

This yummy knit scarf by Karmacrochet is definitely on my list for fall.

These clips by LaAlicia are wonderful! I love upcycled items that are smart and adorable.

How about an accessory that can keep you warm AND make you look great? I'm in love with these ruffles by ModestAmbition.

What girl doesn't love a flower in her hair? I'm smitten with these adorable clips from SillaSoup.

I love adding some punch & personality with feather fascinators by Tara to the T.

I love a great owl! How about this adorable little pendant from Superchica?

With so many great options for accessories made by the members of Etsy Dallas, there are endless ways to express yourself fashionably!
