That’s so Crystal

In The Summertime When The Weather Is Hot… No, Cold!

As winter is kicking in this year, I find myself missing the cool fabrics of spring and summer. I long for strappy sandals, cold lemonade and and the sound of Jerry Mungo playing in my ear. My awesome friends at have just what I’ve been dreaming of during this cold blustery season!

A little bit about The Stellar Boutique!!! First off, if you are interested in design, their site is totally top notch! They have this funky retro vibe that I absolutely adore! It’s like they took the Retro Camera app on my Droid and turned it into real life! It rocks!!

They have every kind of creation that you could love! They carry furnishings for the home, mensware, vintage and bohemian bags, retro sunglasses… everything! It’s like a mecca or something like that. Honestly, they are like touching the sun kind of cool.

So, a few weeks ago, I got a charming comment on one of my blog posts from them and I was like ‘WOW, a real comment’, lol. Yeah, I’m desperate! Anywho…. I was so excited that I jumped online and went right to their site. I browsed for probably three hours (making a christmas list for my hubby at the same time) and with each new product came a plethora of ohhh’s, ahhh’s and OMG’s!

I contacted the owner and she was nice enough to let me do a small feature on her site! While I had been browsing, all that was running through my head was summer, summer, summer! So, here is my must have look for spring/summer 2011!

Thank you all and thank you StellarBoutique!!

This dress…. I am so insanely in love with! It’s the Dahlia Chambray Bow Dress. I LOVE the pleated waistband and the ruffled front! (So sweet and innocent!) The back of the dress is just too adorable with it’s tied bow! The pinstripe is perfect, not too large nor too small. And, the shape of the dress is sooo flattering! OH, and lets not forget to mention those darling little sleeves…. ah… in love! The dress right now is 30% off making it only $61. A steal, I know!! Honestly, it’s such a great price for a dress that you can wear over and over again!

Words cannot describe just how much I love this bag. Really, it’s like tongue tied, brain dead… I’m so in love. You know the feeling, I’m sure. This vintage 50’s mock croc is just to die for! I could easily imagine using this bag, not only during the spring and summer, but during the winter as well. However, when browsing the site, this bag completely caught my eye for the perfect spring bag. I’m totally gaga for the gold hardware. The two shoulder straps are just the perfect size for holding on your shoulder or carrying it, oh so charmingly, on your arm. Honestly, I would flash this bag around like there was no tomorrow.

There were so many pieces I could have chosen for my dreamy look, but I decided to round it out with a simple pair of shades to complete my simple but totally chic look!

When I saw these my mouth dropped! A million images whipped through my mind like a tornado. I saw glam ads from the 70’s, people on the beach, celebs… everything. Really, my brain was moving so fast I may have went catatonic! JK (not really). Anyway…. the glasses! Nothing completes your spring/summer look without a cool pair of shades to hide your face! These are a vintage 70’s style with gold trim. They have these awesomely huge round lenses, have 100% UV protection (gotta protect your peepers, duckies) and the gold metal sides are so fab! They are a total deal at $25 (honestly, they could probably charge way more).

And, so ends our little summer sojurn during the winter. I hope everyone will check out their site (check regularly too). They carry the coolest brands over the pond and their prices are totally reasonable on any budget! Once again, the site is Happy shopping my loves!
