My Mission:

I want to create a place where people can come to find magical things. My main focus will be sharing thrift store finds, and how to get treasures for cheap. I want to one day have my own vintage store, and maybe even learn how to make my own clothes. But this is just the start to my adventures. So join me in discovering the things that inspire us...

On the Rise

All I have to say is that I love shirts tucked into high waisted skirts! I love mixing these up-tight skirt styles with relaxed tees and blouses. It gives the over all look a casual classy feeling. Check out this darling girl who isn't afraid to mix patterns!

Gettin' Nutty in the Pants

So, I have been thinking a lot lately about these new pant trends circulating. The boyfriend jeans, harlem pants, riding pants, and cropped trousers. I love that there are way more styles to choose from these days, because I personally do not feel like I can rock the until-now-raining-champ, the skinny jean. Boot cut feels old... and flares even older. But are these new trends doable, can they be worn by the average person and found at a sensible price? I think the answer is... Yes! some of these styles take a woman a little more brave of heart, like the riding and harlem pants. But I think I am going to track down the others, and you should too! The boyfriend and cropped trousers could even be altered from thrift store men's pants. I am going to give it a go, and keep you updated along the way. Operation...nutty in the pants!

Ember and Lucy

So... exciting news! Amber and I have started to put together a collection of recycled and refashioned clothing called "Ember and Lucy" I have added pictures of our fashions under the new tab labeled so predictably: Ember and Lucy clothing.

Get Lucky

So, in my new endeavors as a fashion blogger wanna-be, I thought I should start research on the best fashion magazines. I sat my butt down and looked through every magazine in Barns and Noble, and came out with the best. Drum roll........ Lucky Magazine! They have by far the most practical outfits, prices, and real life advice. I would wear almost every outfit they had on their pages. It was like they were in my head! Check out some of these pictures and tell me what you think.

Swifting Me Off My Feet

So, I think Taylor Swift is pretty cool. I saw this picture and absolutely loved it! The pattern mix is great, along with the super cool subtle shoes. That was the moment I decided that I have to have these great men's inspired kicks. Still looking though. Check it out, you know you like her.

PS. While you are at it, take a look at the new pages: Thrift store finds, people that rock my socks, and rockin the streets. Let me know if you have any additions!

The coolest person I know...

So, I tried and I tried not to post this. Put I couldn't gather enough self control. As I look through countless pictures of people in magazines, fashion websites, and blogs, there is no one who I think is cooler than... Kristen Stewart. I know it is predictable, but someone who most likely rolls out of bed and walks out the door most mornings and still looks awesome deserves some props. She has her off days, but who doesn't. She still rocks my socks... and makes me want to buy a leather jacket.

Who Loves Emma Watson?

I do, I do, I doo oooooo! Check out this super sexy sweet etherial meets tough outfit. The perfect mix that is so hard to master. but when you do... It's pure magic!

Things to do for Free

Since we are talking about wonderful things that are cheap, I want to mention the most wonderful cheap thing at all. Not spending any money and still having fun. The only catch is it seems to be one of the most rare treasures there is. I don't know about anyone else, but I get the impulse to just spend all the time. But there are so many things I want to do, so many goals I have that don't involve money at all. I recently stumbled across a blog titled "The Simple Dollar" And it lists 100 things to do for free. Everyone's interests are different, so I created my own. On the top five are:

1. learn to sew
2. do art
3. go on a hike
4. Download a podcast and learn a new language (who knew this was free!!!)
5. Visit the library

Think about the things you love and challenge yourself to a "money free weekend!"
