Amy Doan's Eye-Catching Designs
By Julie DiNisio
_Shrinkle? Sugarpill? What are these nonsensical things? Ice cream toppings were my first guess. There’s a little more to them, though - an entire labor of love for designer Amy Doan. Shrinkle is Doan’s clothing line; Sugarpill, her makeup line. According to the Shrinkle blog, the eclectic Doan began sewing her own clothing while in college and never stopped.
Shrinkle’s “Handmade Clothing & Sweet-Ass Vintage Finds” are all featured on her Etsy page and range from sweet and demure to sexy and offbeat. And her fans love it – her almost fifteen hundred feedbacks are all positive. Her pieces for sale include corsets, lingerie, and adorable vintage dresses (and I’m dying to know where she got these amazing finds). Her vintage line is a novelty in that it takes a needle-in-a-haystack vintage shopping experience to a much simpler level. And they’re reasonably priced, truly setting her apart from similar Etsy shops.
As her clothing line began to take off, Doan also began traversing the world of makeup. Specifically, she starting creating makeup to compliment the bold colors and designs of her clothing. So, not surprisingly, you’ll be hard pressed to find a neutral eyeshadow on Sugarpill's website. Sugarpill is characterized by eye-catching purples, pinks, blues, and greens and about every type of false eyelash imaginable. And again, they are all very inexpensive.
So if looking to spice up your wardrobe or add to your already eccentric one, shop Shrinkle and Sugarpill.
