Call Me Captain Review & Giveaway

9:58:00 PM


Being introduced to one of the best store in etsy is such a special thing for me. I personally love etsy, there are a lot of very talented people and unique one-of-a-kind things that you can find there. I love finding new stores with wonderful items, it's like finding a new treasure box :)

My newest current sponsor is a fabulous etsy store named Call Me Captain. Don't you love dreamy unique names for a store? ^o^ I am so happy to be sponsored by Call Me Captain because I personally in love with the store. The selections on the store is stylishly whimsical and very appealing. They have a very lovely vintage dresses collection that were all handmade by Rachel, the owner of Call Me Captain. I love all of her dresses! She also made some cute and unique belts, skirts and other accessories that would surely entice you.



Rachel of Call Me Captain sent me a custom-made belt to review. When I hear about "custom-made" I was delighted because I just love custom-made products, it feels more personal and you can get it the way you want it to be. For a week me and Rachel has been messaging each other on etsy to talk about my custom-made belt. After several discussion and suggestions from Rachel I decided that I want it in black with double-breasted style and gold or brass buttons, and then Rachel sent me some pictures of her gold buttons collection so I can choose my own buttons! I never get this kind of service before, you get what you want right down to the details, so I was very excited. In the end, because the button I want is only 1 left so I let her choose the rest of the 3 buttons for me, it would be a mixed-button belt, a unique belt that no one else has ;)

I know you must be curious to find out what it's like, well here it is my new belt, courtesy of Call Me Captain:
What I received:

The simple but cute wrapping style


What's inside the wrap

Owh, it's so cute it made me happy all over. From the day I received it I couldn't wait to try and mix n match it with different outfit! This belt is so versatile and I love the quality of the fabric as well as the neat stitching, you could tell it was a professional job. And I love the 4 different brass buttons too! I mentioned to her that I love intricate details on a button and apparently she remembers! She chose brass buttons with intricate details for my belt. Rachel does a very good job. I really really recommend Call me Captain. Great service, great quality product and you can custom-order too!
Anyway, here's the detail of the buttons:


As I told you, I couldn't wait any longer to wear it and try it with different outfits. I wore this belt 3 days in a row last week and I wear it practically every day this week ^o^ I got complimented a lot with this belt, even my mom seems a little bit jealous - lol





Call Me Captain is all about handmade clothing and accessories that were made from reclaimed and vintage fabrics, that's what makes all the dresses and skirts so unique and have a genuine vintage feel. Please note that Rachel only use quality, clean, odor-free fabrics. Rachel is also offering ready-made versions but she encourages people to think about custom order. So if you see one item that you love but not your size it means you can still order one in your size, just convo her and she will make it happen. If the fabric you want is out of stock, she would give you another options, probably she would send you photos like she did with me and my gold button options.

Her belts are awesome too and you can custom-made everything, from the fabric, the size to the details of the style you wish. You can take 2 examples of her belts and combine the style, or you can see her belt collections and change the fabric or maybe the location of where you want the buttons to be, etc...
Once again, from my experience I really recommend shopping at Call Me Captain. You would also notice that Call Me Captain has a 100% positive feedback at etsy so that's another reason why you should shop there :D


GIVEAWAY! GIVEAWAY!
Rachel of Call Me captain is offering one very lucky reader a Free Custom-Belt!
You can choose the fabric and buttons, bustle or no bustle and she would make it your size. But if you trust her fab style then you could also let Rachel just do and make one for you, she would choose the fabrics, etc and let it be a surprise for you :)
