For Washington women yearning to find unique pieces on a budget, Etsy.com—which sells handmade and vintage items ranging from T-shirts and hair accessories to bespoke suits and ball gowns—is a great option if you know where to look. Every week, Amber Taylor finds Etsy’s best, whether you’re dressing for an A-list event or brightening up a trusty dress.

Etsy has a broad selection of custom-made formal clothes and office wear, but it also has tons of options that are suitable for laid-back weekends and casual get-togethers.
