"9th and Elm was founded by Clay and Elly Bethune in the spring of 2013 with a mission to bring it's members fabulous fashion from the best handmade and independent designers." This members-only website provides a pedestal for independent designers to display their handmade creations in a unique and exclusive manner. The featured piece, my last little attempt at a summer look, is just one of the items from 9th and Elm's currently featured designers. I'm currently in love with this t-shirt printed maxi dress with racer-back detail. Super soft, and I never would have found this piece or the designer with the 9th and Elm website.
