The Look For Less

This look features the Simone Stripe Dress by Marc Jacobs, which I actually spotted someone wearing at Renegade last weekend. The whole look costs $1,778.00, which is definitely not in my budget.  For outfit details go here.

Our look for less features a dress similar in print and color for just $20 available at Urban Outfitters. The whole look will only cost you $213.00! That's more like it! For outfit details go here.

I saw these dresses at Ruche today and couldn't resist adding a bonus look for less with some more styling options. Go here for outfit details. Have a great weekend!


Renegade Craft Fair is our favorite show of the year! If you're in or near the Los Angeles area this weekend be sure to stop by, you won't regret it! You can shop from over 200 amazing artists and crafters, eat at some of LA's best food trucks and hear great music. There's even free D.I.Y. crafts, a clothing swap, a free photo booth and so much more! Hope to see you there!

Sew Funky Market......

We set up shop this past weekend at the Sew Funky Market. Thanks Christina of Little Wellies for the invite!  Already excited for the fall show!

Dear Mommy Soxie,

Happy Happy Birthday! You are such a special person and we are proud to call you Mom. You have set such a good example for us in being a patient loving mom. We feel so lucky to have had such a talented woman raise us and teach us what she knows. We love you Mom and hope you have a wonderful fun filled day, you deserve it!

For those of you who don't know our mom, her name is Mindy and she is super sweet, to know her is to love her! She is good at so many things but specializes in and teaches hand quilting. If you live in or near Claremont, California and want to learn quilting she's your gal. Although, what she's really focusing on right now is marketing her fabulous product Retro Clean. We have witnessed it's outstanding results many times over the years as well as used it ourselves on numerous items. Here's what got soaked this week:

  an adorable but dingy crocheted necklace found at Lexi's last flea market adventure,
1/2 tbsp. and  4 cups warm water,
soaked in her sunny kitchen for 24 hours,
 the end result...
good as new, Retro Clean strikes again!

By the way mom, this necklace happens to be yours! Happy Birthday!
