One of our BB beauty’s (Miss Savannah Rae Rubie) has gone wandering through Europe and sent us back a few shots to lust over from our office chairs. These pics were taken around Stockholm and all whilst wearing Boheme Bimbo Leatherette Athletic Shorts.
Sometimes its hard to stick to your Boho roots in the depths of winter, so i wanted to share some of the inspiration i’ll be musing on over the cold season, as well as my 4 Winter rules to live by.
- try sticking to Autumn tones throughout; deep reds (maroon), greens (khaki), tans, and black.
- Stick to Fabrics like Leather, Fur, knits, denim and fringing. Cut back on showy jewellery or any bling featured outfits.
- Invest in a pair of sturdy and comfortable winter boots and let the puddle hopping begin.
- Fedora style hats and a tussled mane give you that relaxed look and keep you warm at the same time!
Brand new hand-made Bow Ties up on
So i know these have been around all season but here we are in the height of summer and i still haven’t found a pair i love! So I’ve decided its time to do it myself.
Step 1. First thing’s first, hit your nearest oppie and pick up a pair of jeans. If you like hipsters, try for a brand name (as i have with ‘Sportsgirl’) or if you like high waisted go straight for the Levi’s, they’ll never let you down.
Step 2. Cut them – The best way i find to cut them is to put them on inside out and mark the spot with some fabric chalk (normal chalk works too) leaving them a tiny bit longer at the back to allow for your bum. Try them on again to make sure they are perfect. After they are exactly how you like, give them a wash to loosen up the threads at the bottom for that authentic look.
Step 3. Grab the floral fabric you love (old hankies are great for this as you need little fabric and are super cheap) and place it over a back pocket, tracing right around the edge. Cut right along the line making sure the floral pocket fits over the denim pocket exactly.
Step 4. Hand stitch the fabric on with a colour that blends into your floral. Note: I like to dab a little glue on each corner beforehand to hold the fabric in place as I sew.
And there you are! The sewing part is a little tedious but completely worth the finished product.
