Grunge days:  DIY re-shaped vintage Nirvana shirt, Ardène and vintage hardware, No Brand fringe purse, American Apparel viscose long scoop back neck and thrifted booties.

A city girl with a beach look.  I can’t get enough of this old school 90’s tent dress.  Paired with Aldo african’ cuff, my feu Grand-ma 70’s yellow carry-all (made in West Germany!?! wow), vintage wedges.  Less is more, right?

Hello dear DIY fans!  Here is Boat People’s latest DIY project, the « 2 minutes box top »!  It’s simple: find a square piece of fabric, cut a hole in the middle for your head, take it to the sewing machine for 2 quick-stitches and VOILÀ!  Wear it as a caftan, a box top or just a shawl, depending on your sewing skills!!!

I used a thrifted lace fabric I found at my local charity store, but you can use any mid-weight fabric.  You will need at least a 33″ x 38″ for a S-M top.  Hope you like it and really do hope this inspires your to be creative, and DO IT YOURSELF!!!  :)  xo Boat People

Hello friends and readers!   You may have noticed that Boat People has shifted into the summer speed and is enjoying the sun, just like you are.  The store is still open, of course, and we have a killer summer sale coming up next week, so please stay tuned for more!  But you know, slowing down and taking time to smell the flowers is necessary!  Plus it’s  relaxing, and inspiring.   We are already super exited for the FW11 collection launch coming in august!  But until then, let’s chill!

So, 1/2 of Boat People is « gone fishing » in Portland Oregon.  Yup, I’m (Ari) visiting some friends here for the next weeks.  I’ve arrived yesterday, after an horrible overnight transfer in Newark and a 6h flight stuck beside a dude who forgot to shower after his 40k marathon!  Gosh!  

The Sellwood neighborhood my hosts live in is very very charming, 1 block away from a cute street filled with vintage furniture stores.  As their owners, June and Joe’s home is lovely and romantic… and packed with amazing vintage finds!  I’ll post pictures of my trip as it goes along.  For now, meet the neighborhood’s cow-cat that’s hanging out with me right now!

Meet my vintage itsy bitsy bikini made in Hawaï!


Here is my latest DIY project, the BLACK HEART TEE.  It’s basically an upcycled crop tee I had.  Very simple, yet stylish and contemporary!  Be creative, save money and save earth:  Do it yourself!  :)  Music by Tennis


Voici mon tout dernier projet DIY, le T-SHIRT COEUR NOIR.  C’est un crop tee que j’avais depuis un moment que j’ai upcyclé en y cousant un appliqué en coeur.  Simple, contemporain et stylé à la fois!  Soyez créatives, sauvez des sous et sauvez la planète:  do it yourself!  :)  Musique par Tennis, one of my fav surf/rock/pop band these days!
