Bohemian Chic

Festival season is here. As your calendar fills up with weekends devoted to music, arts & crafts, and plants & herbs your head must surely be filled with the persistent mantra “but what shall I wear?”

There are options: a Minx could dress for comfort, or for a camouflaging effect. However, we suggest you dress for the sheer beauty of the experience! Dress as a form of embodying the very spirit of what the festival is celebrating.

Dress as the muse!

Boho Maxi Dress

Lady Like Lace

What could be more romantic and feminine then draping yourself in this pale blue lace maxi dress? It is right on point with the 1970’s trend this spring.

This lovely maxi dress is a bohemian staple with its airy silhouette.

Nothing could be as fun as running around a field with friends, all of you in long gowns rendered in lace or gauzy flowing fabrics. We highly recommended that every Minx does this at least once in their lives, if not more!


Become the Fairy Queen 

The world is your oyster when it comes to pairing jewelry with this long gowned look.

We chose to pair this bohemian style maxi with jewelry inspired by nature. Vine and leaf bangles and golden leaf earrings keep this look firmly within Titania’s aesthetic.

Mani Designs Earrings


Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

Seychelles Have I Got News  Heels


Strappy Brown Seychelles heels keep this look gaining momentum with the 2015 Spring trend of Boho chic. When styling this lace maxi remember that you can dress is up and down depending on your footwear.

Try boots, sandals and flats. You will find that you can have a fun dinner out, attend a wedding or walk around town.  All of these activities are within reach while you are wearing sporting this flowing, lacy dress, and your ticket to it all is a simple change of footwear (and perhaps hairdo!)

Lear More About the Inventor of the Boho Look

If you love the Boho look we recommend that you check out the new book: Thea Porter, Bohemian Chic. It tells the riveting story of 1970’s fashion designer, Thea Porter, who is credited with inventing the Boho look. Her designers were worn by many of the era’s iconic females.

A Minx can always gain from knowing her fashion history!


Now Minxes: book your tickets to your favorite festivals, run by Asheville’s own Malaprops book store and order a few books on the history of fashion, grab a gown and get out there and frolic!

 Shop this look in our downtown Asheville boutique!

Elisa Jimenez PopUp Fashion at Minx

Elisa Jimenez creates Spontaneous Couture

It’s a one-of-a-kind Minx fashion event!

Elisa Jimenez, interdisciplinary artist, mentor to local designer Brooke Priddy and contestant on the fourth season of Project Runway, will hold a pop-up show at Minx on Saturday, July 17, from noon-3pm.

If you missed her appearance at last night’s Push Fashion Show, here’s your chance to own one of her pieces, meet the designer and see fashion being created before your eyes!

“I’ll have ready-mades and one-of-a-kinds,” she says. “And I can do some spontaneous couture if people want it.”

See you there!
