Windy City Days

unnamed (11)

This past weekend we packed up the camper with all our new arrivals, hit the road and headed to Chicago for the New City Fashion Truck Festival in Lincoln Park. It was a journey just getting there with the endless traffic and construction. But we made it and had the best time meeting new people and sharing the love of mobile boutiques with our fellow fashion trucks!!

The festival featured several fashion truck vendors that had unique finds and adorable fashion looks. There was even a salon on wheels in a camper! We are one of the few fashion trucks based out of Northern Indiana, so it was exciting to meet and connect with other people who have a passion for fashion and traveling too!

We love to travel and bring our bohemian fashion finds to new places, we enjoyed being apart of the event, and appreciated all the love the camper got in the city!

As you can see our Boho Pretty Stylist’s tailor each box to fit the personal fashion tastes of our subscribers. This box keeps with this month’s style trends with  muted colors, lace details, and our favorite bohemian patterns. Our stylists also handpicked intricate jewelry to pair with the pieces that feature bright pops of colors and whimsical details.

Layered lace details are still a huge trend for this season! This striped tank is very versatile and has to be a favorite of our’s in the May box. To show the other ways in which you could fashion this piece, we simply layered a short sleeve top over the tank. With the peak of the burgundy stripes at the neck line and the lace ruffles sneaking out of the bottom the simple top is transformed. Our Stylists want to make fashion easy and versatile, we make sure to pick fashion trends that can be layered and worn in many different ways.

This is another bohemian trend for to look our for- stripes and lace. This piece is perfect to layer with and can be matched with any bright pop of color through the addition of a necklace, cardigan, leggings, or even a fun pair of shoes.

Indie Designer: Lake Dayzz

IMG_0414

We are always on the search for indie designers with bohemian flair and unique items to feature in our monthly subscription box. This month we are excited to present Lake Dayzz Home Decor and Refurbished Furniture as our Indie Designer!

The owner Nicole is a stay at home mom with two boys and is just getting started on this adventure of crafting home decor items and refurbished furniture! Currently you can find her items on Facebook. She creates items such as wreaths, picture frames, reclaimed wood signs, vintage home decor, and up-cycled furniture.

The name Lake Dayzz comes from her love of the lake side living. She grew up a lake girl, spending many days in a lake daze. So naming her business this just made sense, and gives an inside look at the crafter behind these adorable home decor items.

She specially crafted these refurbished wooden frames for our Boho Pretty Subscription Box subscribers. These frames come with a cute clothespin to secure your picture. Not only can this be used to display pictures, it is also perfect to put reminders and notes.

We loved working with Lake Dayzz and featuring their unique items! Please check out her Facebook for more items for sale.

IMG_0242

April is the time to renovate your wardrobe, put aside those heavy layers for lighter more vibrant pieces! With this month’s subscription box we included pieces that are fun additions to mix and match.

IMG_0159

Not only are these pieces perfect for layering together, the textures and patterns can add a unique look to your everyday style. We selected pieces that have fun peplums, cut outs, and textures. These pieces can transform your look into the Spring season.

This chic ruffle peplum top is one of our favorite pieces in this month’s box! It is all about the details in this top- the asymmetrical cut, ruffle, and peplum creates a unique piece that will make your outfit stand out! The chic top can be very versatile as it can be worn dressed up or casual. To dress up this top simply pair with a pencil skirt, blazer, or a statement necklace. On the other hand it can be dressed down by pairing it with jeans, patterned shorts, or a simple cardigan. Its a great transition piece as it can be worn with layers for the cooler spring days and into the hot summer months as a stylish tank.

IMG_0160

You can not look past all the details in this month’s subscription box! Every piece of clothing has a vibrant pattern or a fun texture. This theme did not end when it came to picking the accessories to feature. We choose to include our favorite simple geometric necklaces and a bold textured bracelet. These jewelry pieces are perfect for completing any outfit ensemble.

It’s September: the month of GOLD!

Welcome Boho Pretty Readers to the month of September!

With September, the month of autumn, comes the changing of leaves, weird bursts of rain in 80 degree weather and the emerging of leather boots and floral scarves.

However, it is always nice to have something else to appreciate, to put a reason behind your fashion choice. This month, Boho Pretty is supporting September as the Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.  We are truly inspired to be apart of a cause that is dear to our hearts and to use of love for fashion to make a difference.

Children’s Cancer is on the rise.  The numbers are slim, but they still exist.  According to The American Cancer Society, “About 11,630 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2013,” however fundraising and awareness is being spread nation-wide through a single symbol, the gold ribbon.  1174907_10151853370789617_7903298_n

This month, Boho Pretty will be joining this child cancer awareness initiative by rallying support from a fashion aspect.  Call it “fashion for a cause” if you will.

Boho Pretty is partnering with Mary-Catherine Krieger whose one-year old daughter Lucca has been battling cancer most of her life.  We are active in supporting Children’s Cancer through Boho Pretty and by sharing the word.  As this month is Pediatric Cancer Awareness month and they are represented by the gold ribbon, we will be introducing metallics, gold in particular, in your very own bohemian style.  It gives you a chance to look both fashionable for September fashion, but to also show your support for childhood cancer.

Now that we have officially entered into fall, September 22, fall sweaters are now permissible, and what better way is there than to embrace metallics for this fall season.  Their shine, shimmer and glimmer is metallics own personal “bling” for fall.  image

These sweaters are definitely eye-catchers.  The color itself is powerful, so keep everything else simple.  Opt for a pair of black skinny jeans and cute ankle boots.  The key to dressing is symmetry and balance.  Don’t wear the same pattern on the top and bottom and if your top is flashy with ruffles or a cute neck tie keep the bottom simple.  I also love to keep sweaters tied in with belts or sashes, these are cute accessories to add in.

In addition to symmetry and balance, often your shoes are what make the outfit.  You can keep your clothing at a minimum simplicity and dress your whole outfit with a pair of metallic heels or studded boots or cute metallic top capped flats.

metallic shoesToe capped flats are such a fall look.  They greatly complement a pair of high-waisted shorts or cuffed boyfriend jeans.  Wearing these you are instantly the very fashionable girl-next-door.  If you would rather not be the girl next door, a pair of heels can instantly dress up and outfit, whether it’s a pair of jeans or a nice dress.  Shoes complete the outfit and metallic shoes just make everything POP!

Boho Pretty has just received a new addition of fall scarves that we are loving.  They are simple infinity scarves that can be wrapped around a simple v-neck tee and jeans.  With your lovely Boho Pretty scarf and of course your complementing shoes, you can be dressed in 5 minutes and look highly fashionable and gorgeous all day.

Now when accessorizing, what better way is do that than in a little bohemian fashion.  Boho Pretty loves to introduce new bohemian looks and accessories are just the way to do so.

gold accessoriesWith a cute braided or embellished headband, you can hold on to your signature bohemian style and support children’s cancer as well.  Their symbol is the gold infinity sign.  They make really cute bracelets too!infinity braceletFor all you beauty lovers, we have not forgotten about you.  Metallics is such a versatile and varying trend that it also transfers into makeup.  I have found that any metallic color, whether silver or gold, brings out any colored eyes.  eyeshadowciara metallic eyeshadow 2Metallics always have a great way of showing boldness, fearlessness and beauty, which are the exact characteristics we wish to display while supporting Pediatric Cancer.  For the children, we must show strength of our own and by proudly wearing gold this month, we are doing just that.  Join the cause by supporting Pediatric Cancer and children all over.

Stay Pretty!
