S&J are suckers for anything handmade, local and on trend! The Brathwaite Brand is one of our favorite new Etsy shops, made right in our college town in Gainesville, FL. We love everything about this brand, and especially its owner, Tanya Brathwaite! We met Tanya last semester when she reached out to us about doing a collaboration. Tanya is also a student at the University of Florida but is originally from Barbados-how cool!! She’s from the same area as Rihanna and even runs into her at local bars! Each client is invited to her home where she personally measures you to ensure that your top is fitted exactly to your body type.
We were both obsessed over the Shoulder Teaser top, so we each got one in a different color! This top is so versatile- you can wear it with or without the shoulder sleeves, and can even wear it with the stitching in the back, as seen on the Etsy site.
