Embroidered Oaxacan Vibes

Embroidered loose cotton dresses are the best way to spend these last few weeks of summer.. 
I think Embroidered Mexican Oaxacan Dresses
 are some of the most comfortable dresses to wear!
They simply slip over the head and are usually made of cotton.
Oaxacan dresses are very timeless pieces to wear 
Whats so great about these dresses is that each one is a work of art! 
They've all been hand embroidered in Mexico, and the colors are so rich!! 
They really have no specific period in history as to when they were popular. 
I think these dresses would be ideal to wear to a Festival, or Party.
Their awesome for the clothing collector as well.
 I love to add a few pieces of
 turquoise and silver to give it that Southwestern Boho feel.
I can't imagine how many hours of work that goes into creating each dress.
 As a matter of fact, Embroidered Oaxacan dresses have inspired me to learn how to embroider!
I'd love to keep seeing more of these handcrafted bohemian dresses in the industry!
Its great to know that some of that hand craftsmanship still exists in fashion today.

Rebel Heart

Leather is one of my favorite materials to wear for fall.
Whenever I'm wearing leather I'm always feeling rebellious!
I love how leather can be put together with so many outfits
 and it comes out looking classic each and every time! 
In my vintage clothing collection,
 I own a few vintage leather biker jackets.
Each one has its own unique style features.
Some have long fringe,
others have chunky zipper closures, and some are cropped! 
I think the leather biker jacket should be a wardrobe essential in everyones closet!
 Leather Moto jackets can be worn with jeans,dresses,
and yes even over bikinis! 
This gorgeous vintage biker jacket from shabbybabe really caught my eye! 
Its covered in long leather fringe,
and has a striking chunky front zipper closure! 
This is such a heavy leather biker jacket! 
In the winter months its guaranteed to keep you warm in the colder weather. 
I loved putting this with my metallic bikini from Victoria's Secret
I never thought metallic textures and leather would go so well together!
 I'm very happy how the results of this beach and leather styling experiment came out. 
I'm looking forward to putting many more leather looks together in the fall.

My Everyday Look

During the dog days of summer there are days when I just want to kick back and be comfortable. 
When I go to work I throw my hair up in a messy bun, and dress in very loose clothes.. 
I do a ton of work at the computer for a living, mostly with photography…
 It takes hours to edit photos but I love it!!! 
For a job where you sit for hours I find that big loose dresses always work the best!!! 
I found this incredible embroidered boho dress at shabbybabe. Its awesome!! 
It has a beautiful ruffled hem, and embroidered abstract floral designs. 
I accessorized it with my favorite bag! 
I bought this leather backpack from
 The leather store on Etsy and Its one of the most beautiful purses I've ever owned!! 
It has lots of room for almost anything, and its high quality leather.
I can fit my I pad,lunch,water bottles, and a makeup bag all in this one backpack.
 The best part is,is that its a light brown color that matches anything! 
To finish up this look I threw on my new pair of Gladiator sandals! 
I bought these gladiator sandals off of 
They fit perfectly!
 I know with gladiator sandals if the straps aren't tight enough it can become a problem. 
 The straps on these sandals are adjustable 
so you can customize the fit to whatever your needs are.  
This is pretty much how I dress for work everyday!
 Its a fast, easy, and very stylish everyday look!

Beach Bohemia

 I've been obsessed with gorgeous white dresses to wear on my beach days! 
White is a beautiful beach color that reminds us of
 the breaking tide, seashells, and the romance of a sunset walk along the ocean. 
Its such a feminine color to wear on an overcast beach day. 
I love this white cotton gauze boho chic mini dress from shabbybabe!! 
Its one of the comfiest dresses I've ever worn!. 
It simply slips over the head and ties in back. 
The back tie is optional. This dress looks great just hanging loosely on the body. 
The bodice of the dress is a cotton eyelet lace. 
For white dresses its always a good idea to add accessories with a splash of color!
 That's why I added my coral beaded necklace. It worked out perfectly! 
Coral and orange looks so bold and gorgeous with white…. 
With this dress I also added a brown straw beach bag from shabbybabe.
The combination of the bold bright accessories worked out so well with this dress.
Cotton,rayon,and linen are the best fabrics when hang in on the sand.
The sand washes right out at the end of the day. Sadly summer is winding down.
 Lets try to make the most of whats left this August.

Red & Paisley

Paisley has to be one of my favorite prints!!! 
I feel that its one of those designs that you either love it or hate it.
 So much vintage clothing and vintage inspired clothing have the signature paisley design.. 
I think if you wear it in moderation and your not covered head to toe in paisley it looks awesome. 
This dress is a vintage AJ Barry design.
 Its gorgeous!! The fit is perfect, and its made out of a rayon,so while shooting this dress I was so comfortable! 
I adore the scoop neckline and the high waisted design. 
This is a great vintage boho dress that could be worn anywhere! 
The red color is beautiful and I love the small floral print.
 Not very often do we find clothes that make us feel beautiful. 
This dress made me feel like a goddess while wearing it! 
I didn't wanna take it off for the rest of the day, 
and I received so many compliments on it!
 I'm looking forward to shooting even more of these bohemian maxi dresses in the future! 
Their rich in color,design,and texture..
