The first shop I chose is a local one, mossbadger. I am a bit hesitant to promote local shops for my own reasons, but I cannot deny that I like her rosettes. I won a brown one at the Mega Meet, and there are a few others I like. I am not big on the ones with the giant animal images, but I love the ones with the filigrees and such. Personal preference.
The second shop is one I discovered recently through Tumblr, Toxicity. Honestly, her new print really won this for me, as I LOVE Notre Dame. Also, I remember reading somewhere that she loved the gothic architecture, but did not like the over-abundance of crosses and religious symbols, which is why she came up with this design. That is much my own opinion, so I was very pleased to see this design. I am trying to win the sample dress, but if I do not, I am definitely hoping I can purchase one of the Notre Dame JSKs.
