" Happy New Year" 2014

Vintage may be derived from the Past, but it is very today....There are moments that come to us in glimpses. A first memory of planting Petunias with your Parents..... Making acorn dishes with your big Sister. Seeing the Ocean for the first time at 22.( Yes the first time I left Minnesota I was 22)...... It can be something so simple as your Mother telling you to always have a tube of RED lipstick on hand, for those  days your not feeling so pretty.... These memories of your past create your Vintage Soul. It's why you covet a peely cupboard that you once found in and old barn. Or a fancy Victorian table that reminds you of your grandmothers house. These are the things that comfort us...they work better then something packaged brand new!! So as the New Year begins, I hope you all look to the future, but remember also where you came from.It lives and breathes in all of us.  Happy New Year, Hugs Chrisy
How to look Chic without going broke. I'm talking about Casual Chic. Living by the Beach it's all about comfort. Vintage cami slip with rolled up jeans &  denim jacket and flip flops, can be the norm here...But you can also hop on this Springs new designer looks... It's back to the 90's grunge look---Seasons key shapes, longer pencil skirts, light as air slip dresses, with urban accessories-such as sneakers and iridescent outer ware   Goth meets Victoriana in the seasons textured ruffles , adorning everything from shorts to statement jewelry. Put on a denim jacket, throw on a large gypsy cross-over bohemian bag, and your street ready.....Come find your self ..We are already thinking Spring.....
