Kelly, of Let’s Die Friends Etsy shop and blog, is an uber-talented graphic designer and artist living in Southern California. You might remember her from her awesome guest post back in January. When she’s not designing fabric or making pins or sketching ideas for prints you’ll find her chasing after her adorable daughter Zoey or possibly dressed as a centaur. All I can say for sure is that this girl is talented and hilarious to boot, and you need her art in your life.
My librarian friend Lisa began creating these literary-inspired novel accessories a few years ago, and since then they have taken off. I’m proud to say I own two of her pins and they are my favorite thing to wear pinned to my winter coat or a librarian-esque cardigan. I once interviewed her and was able to work in both “tell me about your balls!” and “I fucking love Pride & Prejudice! This isn’t a question.” You don’t have to be a librarian to love these, though 9 out of 10 librarians do (the tenth librarian questioned was actually a MARC database).
Carolyn of Paper Squared is the genius behind this all-natural shop. She is infamous for keeping scores of librarians sweet-smelling, moisturized, and naturally exfoliated. Her brews and potions make her a modern-day Nanny Ogg, except with better oral hygiene.

After about a month of moping about it I decided that if I couldn’t wear cute shoes I was going to have the most fabulous collection of sunglasses ever. They are my guilty pleasure. Sunglasses shop offers everything from fancy-schmancy sunnies to the affordable SXUC brand. Here are some of my affordable favorites:
