Looking Fit n' Foxy, Feeling Fit n' Foxy!

Just like how wearing the right shoes can make you feel invincible in the gym, clothes that make you feel powerful can ramp up your workout. Feeling pumped from teaching my 5:30am Chizel class this morning, I decided to do a little "virtual window shopping" on Etsy.com--an Ebay-like website that allows sellers set up a virtual store to sell their specialty handmade items.

I love love love Etsy...it's like buying yourself a special present that's handmade with love :) AND--it's quality stuff that's AFFORDABLE (even better!).


Here's some handmade fitness items that made my "love it" list this morning:


Are these Acid-splash leggings by Clothesmindeddesign just rad as all get out?



I wasn't sure what a "booty cap" was, but now I know I need one like this by Houseofvansickle. So cute!



This reminds me of my DIY emo days. I would cut up all kinds of t-shirt and Goodwill finds and make something awesome out of it. You can find instructions to make a t-shirt halter HERE, OR you could just buy this sweet custom-made Bon Jovi one by Supapun.



Tie Dye Leggings? YES, please! These by tiemee are sooooo fab!



These urban dance/yoga foldover shorts by jmorco are tres chic! Actually, anything by jmorco is tres chic.



Diamonds are a girl's best friend and this loose, casual screenprinted shirt by mojonet is no exception. MUST HAVE!



Okay, I'm a Twilight hater (In a knife fight, I'm going True Blood all the way lol), but I have read the first book and this tank top by firedaughter is quite cute.



Need a reminder, or motivation to get to the gym in the morning? Get this pillow by alexandraferguson. I definitely need one of these for those 5:30am mornings! :)



This sweet and sassy skull tote by HautTotes is perfect as a gym bag!



This gorgeous personalized dance/gym bag by pasik93 almost matches my blog!!!



So, someday when I win the Mega Millions jackpot, I will buy all this fabulous handmade stuff. Until then, I can keep on dreaming until I find a full-time job. I teach group fitness part-time because it's my passion--certainly not for the money! :)

Where do you find/buy your workout clothes? Find anything else cute/fantastic/awesome on Etsy? Post a link in your comment! Have a great day and stay cool in the summer heat!
