Humble Hippie. Cute Accessories.

Hello Everyone! Just wanted to pass along some great photos I took over the weekend in Ocean Beach. Of course, I stopped by the Humble Hippie on Newport Avenue.

While sipping my Vanilla Latte I couldn’t resist doing a little more than window shopping. So much for my vow to “keep wallet in handbag”.  (I failed….)


I really loved the cute hats and cozy knit scarves.  Being the thrifty shopper, I was thrilled with the prices– $19 for scarves- heaven!

Especially now with the cooler Fall weather a scarf is great to throw on with a jean jacket or light sweater.  This is the rational I used– you guessed it– I got a new scarf.  If you want to see what it looks like, check out my blog post from earlier this week.  (I paired it with a jacket I got for $31 at Marshall’s)


If you’re in the market for flirty dresses, there are plenty of these too.  Maybe I’m too much into accessories these days because all I can think about is which scarf and which hat I would wear with that bright dress pictured on the right, above.


The Humble Hippie was as charming as ever! I had a nice chat with the owner (Wes) this weekend too.  He sent me a couple of really cool photos that I will have to attach to this post a little later.  I’m having a slight snafu with my email tonite.  So I guess you all will have to settle for my lovely iphone-photography for the time being.

Cheers and have a good week everyone. Happy Shopping and keep me posted if any of you out there have made any recent purchases at The Humble Hippie.

Tonite I was strolling thru the Westfield UTC mall in San Diego– no plans to buy anything just enjoying the evening. I was pleasantly surprised to find a kiosk called ModDiva displaying some fabulous vintage inspired bags and accessories.  Actually, I needed one more gift for my Mom so this was a good find!  I purchased the wristlet for $15 and also got a free key chain with purchase.  (I continue to try to down-size which is why I only bought one thing– however, after scanning thru the ModDiva website I’m pretty sure I’ll be returning for a messenger bag. Will post photos on that later.)  Here is a sample of what they offer:

Wristlets– These bright and funky colored wristlets are fabulous when you want to travel light.  All of the wristlets have a zippered closure, are fully lined on the inside and machine washable.  They have an alligator clip strap so you can easily wear them around your wrist.  Starting at just $15 it’s a great deal when you consider the wristlets are unique and handmade by ModDiva.

Handbags– ModDiva fabric handbags and accessories are handmade in the United States by the owner and her mother.  These items are modern and utilize the highest quality designer fabrics and workmanship.  These bags make fantastic gifts for friends and family.

Cosmetic Bags— These are great for storing cosmetics, diapers, pens and pencils, or supplies.  With a duck egg fabric lining, they are easy to clean.  Just toss these little makeup bags in the washing machine and lightly iron to bring it back to life.  This would make a great gift filled with bath and body products!
