Hello friends! Hope you all had an amazing weekend! Part of Finding Faith to me is about finding my own personal style. I'm still experimenting with it, but I would describe my style as bohemian. One day while thrift store shopping with Shana and Edwina, it just clicked. I found ME! It was so exciting! I bought up everything I could, then went home and put together outfits with items I already had. I even did a little fashion show for my husband. Part of the bohemian style to me is finding and creating unique pieces. I will be posting my "altered clothing" projects and ideas with you every now and again.
I dyed the fabric with 1/8 c red ink, 2 t red food coloring, 1/4 c each of henna and loose tea for an aged look (can also use coffee) and 1/2 c sea salt, and enough water to cover.
I boiled the ingredients, submerged the garment and let it sit in the hot water for about 3 or 4 hours. I was very pleased with result.
Here is the finish product!
If you want to experiment with a style, start with finding different looks online. I LOVE Pinterest for this (Follow me on Pinterest as vegasartgirl). Quite often I try to re-create looks that I find. Look in your own closet first, then look for unique pieces. I prefer the thrift stores, but I do shop at regular stores for specific items and jewelry. (I'm constantly looking for bargains). For those who want to try a bohemian look, it is very unconventional with not a lot of rules, but I do have guidelines for myself. Accessories are a big part of it for me, jewelry, scarves, hats, etc. I'm also a fan of fringe and lace. I also try to stick with the "rule" of wearing a flowing loose top with something short or tight and vice versa. However, rules for the bohemian are made to be broken. So get out there and create a new look for yourself! We would love to see what you put together!
