Hey look! We've Moved!

Hey look! We've Moved!
Happy new year friends! With new years come new beginnings, right? Well, 2015 is bringing in a very big new beginning for BFS. That new beginning is this: we've moved! Yes folks, that's right! This is the last post that will ever be written on this old, worn-out blogger blog. After a time of dreaming, and that dreaming becoming possibility, and that possibility becoming reality, we have finally moved to our own, wordpress-hosted blog! I know that this may be heart-breaking for some, and confusing, yet exciting, for others, but nonetheless we hope that you will continue to follow along our blogging journey at boyerfamilysingersblog.com

This blog, Boyer Family Singers, started out as an online journal for our mom to keep up with our friends back at Washington, when we moved from the west-coast to the midwest. As time went on, we girls began to become more and more involved in the blogosphere through mom's blog... which, as you can now see, is our blog... and it evolved into an encouragement online-magazine of sorts, to inspire young ladies to dress modestly, yet creatively, before the Lord; and to live a creative, artistic lifestyle to His Glory.

Well, it was time for a clean slate. One that we could start afresh on our own, with the BFS trademark that we have developed over the past months, stamped on it all the way. Though evolving is a huge part of any blogger's career, sometimes you need to wipe the slate clean of old times and begin anew. So much of our vision for this blog has changed, and it was time for a home of it's own.

Most of the old, relevant archives of this blog have been transferred over, and we will continue to keep this blog live for future redirection... and for the sake of nostalgia :)... Also, all of you who follow our blog with Bloglovin', your feed from this blog will be redirected to the new blog. Now you know why we've been emphasizing following us with Bloglovin' over the past weeks :)

Also! The winners of the HWWV for the Holidays Contest will be announced on the new blog, so all the more reason to come over to the new site and follow us, hehe! We planned that well, didn't we? ;P

Thanks so much for supporting us though this blog!! We are beyond grateful to you all, and most of all to our Lord and Savior for giving us the heart and will to do this blog. Soli Deo Gloria.

Now, come on over to the new BFS, and make yourself at home!


xoxoxo,
-Charlotte

Merry Christmas from the Boyer Sisters!

Merry Christmas from the Boyer Sisters!
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
It is hard to believe that Christmas is already here once again. This past year has flown by SO fast, and so much has happened since last Christmas that we can hardly believe it was only a year ago that we were dreaming about everything that actually happened this year. The Lord has indeed blessed us! We wanted to send you all a Christmas greeting with one of our new favorite Christmas songs, and give you a peek into what our Christmas has been like thus far. So, without further ado, Christmas in about 3 Minutes!

HWWV for the Holidays Contest!
Oh oh oh!!! We are SOOO excited for today's post! Because guess what? Today our ever so popular How We Wear Vintage Polyvore contest returns! Only this time, we're going to do everything with a holiday twist! For those of you who don't know what our last contest was like, let us explain: This contest is to encourage young ladies who want to get into vintage fashion, admire the styles of eras gone by, or those who are already avid vintage wearers, to come up with a holiday outfit inspired by your favorite vintage era from the 30's to the 60's.

How We Wear Vintage for the Holidays // Hair & Makeup

How We Wear Vintage for the Holidays // Hair & Makeup
Bobby pins, pomade, hair spray... what else... Oh yeah! Curlers and a comb! Where did the mascara go...?
Hello my dears! I am on a rampage today with vintage hair and makeup things as you can see. Why? Well, for one thing it is because this is the second to last post of the H.W.W.V., and for another, I have never ever done a post in this series before, so I am trying to "pin" down my thoughts. The girls asked me to talk about hair and makeup this time, and of course I gleefully said yes. So if you don't mind, I am just rounding up the last bits of my trailing recollections before we begin... Ok, I'm set now. Are you ready to plunge into the four eras of hair styling and makeup looks? Before we do, let me prepare you for the layout: on the left hand side you will see the vintage icons, while on the right you will see modern day takes on all of the eras presented. Ok, lets go!

How We Wear Vintage for the Holidays // 1960s

How We Wear Vintage for the Holidays // 1960s
Ah the sixties. It's really a love-hate decade for most. Some adore it in every way; others simply despise it, being blinded by a few of the horrendous revolutions and political events that took place.... and then there are those like me, who only care to take bits and pieces of the decade for fashion inspiration. This was the era for mod shifts, kitten-heels, mini-skirts, cable-knit sweaters, and beehives. I think the best way to wrap up this decade of eccentric fashions in a few keywords would be this: structured, casual, and colorful. Shall we take a look at how to style this era for your holiday excursions? Let's go!

How We Wear Vintage for the Holidays // 1950s

How We Wear Vintage for the Holidays // 1950s
Hello dears, Charlotte here! Today we get to cover my most absolute favorite era, from beginning to end: the 1950s. Why do I love this era so much? Well, at the start of it you have adorable designs that still harken back to the 40s; the middle has the absolute splendor of huge skirts and eccentric details; and then at the later end, the conservative, ever-classic fashions of the 60s start trickling in (think Dick Van Dyke style)... Oh how I do adore this era! Anyhow, we get to be inspired today by these gorgeous fashions for our holiday outfits, so let's dig in, shall we?

How We Wear Vintage for the Holidays // 1940s

How We Wear Vintage for the Holidays // 1940s
Hello again dearies! I'm getting a bit of a late start today, and, oh, there is SO much to do before Christmas gets here! But let's take a few minutes to step back in time to the 1940's and take a look at what they wore back then for the special time of year that we find ourselves in at the present.
