Electrifying Summer Style

The second that Summer officially arrives, the city explodes in a simultaneous celebration of thrills like food from food trucks, yummy cocktails, & great company while hanging outdoors- preferably by the water. Sundresses, shorts, sandals or flip-flops, & straw hats are the comfortable summer attire for most.

Lighter & brighter colors, like neon, are everywhere in the fashions, interiors, & even in the outdoors. I think it is a great Summer trend that everyone can try. So embrace these brighter colors & get inspired!

Macreme is Arabic for Fringe

Crochets, Knits, & Macreme have always had a soft spot in my hippie heart! Macramé is a form of textile-making using knots instead of weaving or knitting. It is similar to the crochet or Chinese knotting which is used to create intricate textiles. Macramé craft is increasingly being used in clothing & textiles to cater to the customers like yours truely.
With summer fast approaching, well it actually is already here down in Dallas, TX, I thought it would be a good idea to share some of my recent favorites with you so you can bring this summer fashion out of your closets again!

peace & love,
