With summer slowly fading away, we begin our transition into autumn.

Cherish the long summer days while you still can; the coziest season is coming upon us.

Get the look here.

Happy Lunar New Year, Red Dress Shopping

We had the cutest customer in the shop yesterday, looking for a red dress to wear to her Chinese New Year celebration.  She was telling us all about her families expectations for her and how she was reluctant to follow their traditions.  Yet, there she was, going out of her way to hunt for the perfect dress.  She may have pushed the boundaries on her hair colour and accessories, but she wanted to make her family happy.

It’s when we take a stand and do what works for us, but still borrow from these deep traditions that we really become our own person. 

This is the sparkle in someones eye, the extra glow they have that make them one of a kind, the type of person who loves who they’ve become. So make sure you are you!

We love dresses!

 

 

 

Day Dreamer

lace kimonoYou know that time of day, when the sun is either rising or setting and time stands still enough to create a moment?  Well that’s my favourite time of day, usually it’s morning for me as soon as the espresso is ready and the sunshine catches my attention, it feels like anything can happen.

Astonishing Adornments

Finally it’s summer! Now I can wear a necklace without having to worry about it getting tangled up in my scarf or wear bracelets without the struggle of trying to get them through the sleeve of my coat. Freedom feels great my friends, and all this freedom inspires me to get creative by decorating my body with interesting jewelry. Here at Farminista we’ve discovered our new favourite jewelry designer who lives right here in Saskatchewan! Her brand is called Alexandra Kathlyn Accessories (also known as AKA) her pieces are unique and GORGEOUS! The bracelet my friend Christine is wearing in the above picture is one of Alex’s pieces, it’s simple yet rare. Now if you’re a wild gypsy at heart like myself than you are going to need a head chain for summer. It’s the perfect accessory that will help you achieve a fun boho look.

Statement necklaces like this antique one are also great because they can make a simple jeans and t-shirt outfit instantly go from 0-100 or make a simple dress look a more fancy. Although if you’re not all about the chunky monkey kind of necklace, than bracelets might be the way to go. A couple of layered bracelets will add a little extra pizzazz to an outfit, but they’re more subtle than a big necklace.

Adornment doesn’t just involve jewelry either! Hats are a great way to add finishing touches to an outfit. Nothing’s better than the perfect floppy hat for summer, they look good and have a function; to make you look fab while protecting your face from the sun’s beams of radiant light.

With all that said, I hope this sparked a fire in your little creative heart to start getting innovative when accessorizing and try new things! Remember though, you don’t need a bunch of accessories to make yourself beautiful! You’re already beautiful just the way you are, accessories only add to your natural beauty they don’t create it. <3

 

 

Prairie Bohemian Style

prairie_bohemianWhat does bohemian mean to you?

Do you think of artists, musicians or free spirited people?  We think of bohemian style as a relaxed, layered look, girls who like to take their favourite dress and pair it with a sweater, scarf or even add a kimono, or vest or crochet sweater and lots of accessories.

Desiree Martin has been taking pictures of friends and family for years, she put together this shoot with a few of her favourite creative friends. But also does weddings and other important occasions.  Because she grew up in the country she has an eye for natural beauty and that little sparkle you see in the bohemian girls eye that shows she’s just not like every other girl.

Growing up in the fashion industry and being surrounded by artists gave her the vision to create a bohemian mood in this stunning prairie environment.

We have long, cold winters, so when the hot prairie sun is out we spend as much time outside as possible.  To make a little shade for a picnic or a nap like we did use an old curtain or tablecloth, pack some snacks and your favourite drink and make some memories to get you through the next winter.  Oh, and don’t forget your guitar!
