Robots are the Future!

robots in fashionHi Everybody, Hope you’re having a sexy week so far!

I love robots and thought I would share this editorial with my fellow futuristic lovers! The shoot is from a Harper’s Bazaar from a few years back and the beautiful model is Magdalena Frackowiak (yep, I can’t pronounce it either.)

Over the past few months I’ve been especially inspired by jewelry. I decided to dig through my vintage brooches and necklaces for treasures that could be resurrected and made into something new and exciting. The Hippie Couture statement jewelry collection is the outcome! I will post more pics soon but check it out when you get a chance. 🙂

Now that the collection is complete I will hopefully be back to blogging on a more regular basis. Thank you to everyone for your emails, comments and continuing to check out the FH blog! I feel the love! ♥

Love All Around,
Cara Mia

I LOVE NEW YORK!

new york dolls vogue april 2009I’ve been missing N.Y.C. lately and thought it would be therapeutic to blog about it. I found this awesome photo shoot called “New York Dolls”from a 2009 Vogue and was totally inspired! I broke out my Trash & Vaudeville shirt (pictured below) and started to make tentative plans to journey back to the city. 🙂

If you’re not familiar with Trash and Vaudeville, it’s probably the most awesome store in Manhattan…next to Pat Field’s, of course! They have been around since forever and carry a huge selection of punk T-shirts, hard to find shoes, and rock-n-roll fashion like Lipp Service and L.A.M.B.

After a massive shopping session at “Trash”, I always venture over to The Yaffa Cafe for a nice glass of wine and a delicious meal. Yaffa is also located on St. Marks Place and is open 24hrs. Great for those late night meals after the clubs and you’ll always find a wide variety of people from hipsters to drag queens!

If you make it to the big apple and want to do something out of the ordinary, I highly recommend a visit to these fabulous places. You won’t be disappointed! 🙂

Love All Around,
Cara Mia ♥

In the meantime, here’s a shop that is one of my personal favorites……Toxic Vision. The clothes are amazing but I particularly love the way they shoot them…..everything from the model selection to the makeup is just fierce!

Mint Lovers + Future Hippie Award time!

future hippie loves mint
Ever since I was a wee tyke I have loved mint! When I spent the summers with my grandmother she would fix me a big bowl of Breyer’s Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream and I was in heaven! I would scoop out all the large chips, push them off to the side of the bowl, eat the ice cream, and then eat the clump of chips last. Isn’t that weird?

Today I still love Mint ice cream, and I have recently been on a mission to find anything in a mint color. Here are some fun pics and cool mint products that are now on my “to buy” list.

So now that I’ve told you something weird about me, what’s one fun fact about you that people might find a bit strange? 🙂
