With humble beginnings selling at craft fairs to friends and family, KraftyChix broadened their reach with an online shop that makes and sells handmade craft items. Dedicated to delivering super cute creations, the success of KraftyChix has allowed the Krafty Crew, a former rocket scientist, and accountant, to quit their jobs and focus on bringing fresh, new favorites to the everyday chick.


The Annapolis Sailboat Show 2015 – Lifestyle Tip

The Annapolis Sailboat Show is a historic event that takes place in the Annapolis district.  This is a show for sailors (and family members) searching for equipment, clothing, and boating accessories.  It’s also a great place to visit and enjoy the sailboat tour!

Aside from enjoying the beautiful boats, guests can sip on cocktails, listen to music, and indulge in authentic Maryland cuisine.  My personal favorite is the jumbo crab cake and ice cream.  The boys and I walked around to vendors; we even viewed a gorgeous two bedroom yatch and considered taking sailing courses.


Sailboat Show2

The Annapolis Sailboat Show’s considered to be one of the largest and oldest in-water sailboat shows.  Here are a few style tips for boat dressing:

1.  Sophisticated Sunglasses

2.  Beautiful Tunic or Afghan

3.  One-Piece Swimsuit

4.  Stylish Clutch Handbag

5.  Maxi Dress

6.  Wedge Platforms or Flip Flops

7.  Straw Hat

The Dunham Collection offers sophisticated, modernized versions of the Bermuda bag. The upgrades are plentiful all while maintaining that vintage Bermuda vibe. The differences lie in the Dunham Collection’s revolutionized design and broad use of materials for covers. The original Bermuda bag came with a limiting wood handle and a small white muslin base that required a cover, of which there were few cover options. – In contrast, both the Dunham clutch and Carrie clutch are stunning enough without having to use a cover, yet give the option of using a cover, therefore maximizing their versatility.

– The Dunham clutch comes with a leather handle and a base constructed from either soft suede or genuine Italian leather (choose from gold, brown, black or white).

– The Carrie clutch has no handle, but rather a stylish, -adjustable/removable chain. The Carrie base comes in leather and is firmer in structure for a sleek, sophisticated look. Both retail for $265.00.

– Choose one (or several) of the myriad of chic covers offered by the Dunham Collection that fit both the Dunham and Carrie clutches for a completely different look. The options are limitless: crisp linen, sexy snakeskin, modern sequined, metallic cork, burlap, suede, classic stripes or a monogrammed cover updated with crabs, anchors and more playful designs. There is a cover for every occasion no matter how casual or formal. In addition, there is no need to fumble with clunky buttons to fit your cover like with the Bermuda bag, simply put the cover over the Dunham bag and press the holes (in the cover) onto the studs for a brand new look. Since your base bag remains and you only change the cover, there is no more fussing with transferring the contents of your purse to another. Furthermore, Carrie Dunham has made it possible to travel with ONE handbag and multiple covers so every look is polished. Clutch covers range from $58.00-$84.00.

Sophistication with Clutches and Top Handle Purses

Purse, Purses, Purses! That’s what fashion girls are talking about this upcoming season.  And from my observation, Clutches and Top Handle bags are one of the hottest accessories.  They’re being labeled “The Polished Bag” and “The Invitation Clutch.”  Handbags for Fall 2012 have a lady like demeanor with a touch of sophistication.

These stylish bags are being worn by celebrities, socialites, and women in the office.  But what’s so great about this accessory is that each handbag can go from day to night.

Lastly, there’s enough room for your cellphone, lipstick, keys, and maybe even your tablet!  The hot colors for Clutches and Top Handle Bags are purple, green, cobalt blue, tan, and orange.
