Farah Dress from kt jean

Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.

What: We caught up with Katie Walker of kt jean last week when one of her designs appeared on The Martha Stewart Show's Etsy-centric episode. And since then, well, we can't manage to avert our eyes from her dreamy creations. Case in point: the Farah dress. Its '60s-inspired silhouette floats away from the body, and the vertical open slit at the neckline closes with a small button.

Where: kt jean's Etsy shop

Cost: $260
