Gang, I was thrilled to receive a email from Hayley, who blogs over at Easy Style For Moms. She had recently bought this gorgeous yellow sweater from an Etsy seller based in China. I've had my eye on a few Chinese-based Etsy sellers (their designs are so interesting and unique yet amazingly affordable), but I haven't tried anything firsthand. Happily, Hayley was willing to share her thoughts about the process and the product.
I’ve always been drawn to clothing with a contemporary Asian aesthetic. These pieces are often layered, draped, and playful when it comes to volume and proportion. It’s a look that feels very modern so when I discovered this long, draped sweater on Etsy, I just had to have it. I purchased the sweater from Aolo, an Etsy seller based in China. I had to wait two weeks after placing the order but my patience was rewarded when the package arrived. I had been concerned about the fit because it was only offered in one size but I’m more than happy with the way it looks. This sweater is now easily one of the favorites in my closet.
