Imagined conversation at the Steve Madden clothing factory:
“Sir, there’s been an accident. A huge batch of black jersey skirts got pulled through a shredder.”

And voila, the “short hula skirt coverup” was born. [$42, Zappos]

The #1 most embroidered phrase in history is probably “Home Sweet Home,” closely followed by “Bless This House” and “Live, Laugh, Love.” Those saccharine sentiments are nice and all, but we prefer our embroidery to have a little bit more edge, which is where Etsy comes in.
