My Birthday

As the years go on I gain more confidence, more or less direction, humor, and pieces of me!

What's trending: ~BoHo Chic

What is it?
A fashion trend that is part Bohemian and part Chic. It is tied to the vintage phenomenon in fashion where the trend was to bring back vintage styles for the modern era. Boho chic combines organic, colorful, detailed, folk-inspired pieces with simple, modern pieces. An example would be wearing a beaded peasant dress with a white tank-top. 

The trend is said to have been started by actress Sienna Miller in 2005. She wore bohemian-style clothing in the movie Alfie and continued to sport the garb regularly in London. People began to imitate this style, and fashion designers took notice.

BoHo Chic is flower crowns and crazy stylish patterns. It can be plain or just downright wacky!
Boho Chic isn't however just fashion it can also be decor as seen below.

Note - Boho Gypsy and Boho chic are two different things. Boho Gypsy is more like the stereotypical Gypsy's you see in movies. Where Boho Chic is kinda on the hippie/ Bohemian   side of things.

The reason I'm doing this post today is because the fashion style of Boho chic really started to skyrocket in 2006, however it's coming back around and I love it!

Yard Sailing

      We went yard sailing 2-3 weekends ago and I found a lot of good finds, this post has been a draft for weeks now and I haven't had the time to complete this; however due to my parents going on a movie date in honor of their 21rst wedding anniversary so I have time to complete this post; congrats mom and dad!!!

My first item is a jewelry box with a faux leather finish and clear gloss on the top. On the side is a place to lock the box. Price $3
Sorry for all the pictures of this one, haha. This is an eggbeater from 1921. It was made in the US and I'm honestly really fascinated by it. Price $1

These are decorated bullet shells, I'm using them as singular flower vases. Price $1 each

These suitcases are from the 50's and are in the best of condition! Price $1 each

I actually got this beautiful glass clock for free, special thanks to my neighbors :)

This retro looking mustard tin is from the 50's, and yes as scary as it sounds it still had mustard in it... but I emptied it and cleaned it thoroughly using it now for decoration. Price 25 cents 

Considering I got this for 25 cents I don't think this little box is real silver; however it is made in Japan and is pretty cute.

Old Avon perfume bottle shaped as a white elephant... How cool! Price 10 cents

The key part of this little wooden box doesn't function... and the inside is pretty rough, It's beautiful and works as a "junk drawer" but in the box form it's in. Price 50 cents

Honestly I have no idea why I bought this... For some odd reason I had to have this thing. It's a little wooden sculpture from Jamaica and  looks to be hand carved. The phrase "No Problems" is edged into the side. Price $1

This is a baret I picked up more for decoration rather then a hat. Price 25 cents  

This is a long thin box with a lot of famous landmarks in England such as Big Ben. I'm using it for all my drawing materials.

I discovered this ceder chest for $3. I'm using it to store some of my favorite books in. 

This is a wooden decoration, Price 10 cents.

How adorable is this little 2x3 frame? Price 50 cents 

I absolutely love this scarf! Price $1

I bought this hat for 15 cents. It's actually really soft and fuzzy.

{Sorry for the blurry picture} This sweater was only 50 cents. It's manufactured by one of my favorite brands, Route 66!

Okay, I've seen a gazillion dictionaries in my lifetime, but one that's 6 inches thick?!? How cool! It's from 1989 and the price of $5 is more then I typically spend for a book at a yard sale; I had to have this one!

Although a little dusty I loved the look of this bracelet holder! Price $2

Let me first start off by saying I love ocean city Maryland (the place where it was sold at), and this little box is pretty nifty. I'm using it for a place to put my ear buds in and two of my favorite rings. Price 25 cents

American Eagle handbag? Not only do I love American Eagle but there merchandise is really expensive, so when I found this bag for $1 I couldn't pass it up! 

I've been interested in tennis for a while now... I did some research on rackets and well they're are to say the least expensive. This particular racket I picked up with the case is $400. However the handle needs to be re-rapped... I tried using it and the purple dye made my hand purple... other then that and some dust its brand new! Price $4

These two rolls of fabric {5x5} were $1 each.

Okay, some of you may know I like older things. Old books, retro fashion, etc.but this newspaper was printed in Dec. 1894, the stories and the adds are intriguing. For example there is an add in there about organs and pianos for $25... cool!

This is a Boho style purse I bought for 50 cents.
