Chicfinds from the deepest oceans

Chic Finds feels like some glitter and sparkle from the depths of the Ocean and is is the mermaid that inspires us to look for sequence and precious fabrics.  The mermaid is like the sparkle of the deep sea and there are many mythological tales that tell the stories of these creatures of the sea. “Mermaid” is a compound of mere, the Old English word for “sea”.

“In European folklore, mermaids were associated with sirens, beautiful creatures whose singing lures sailors to their doom. Mermaids were commonly pictured as floating on top of the waves, singing or combing their long hair and gazing into mirrors. Seeing a mermaid was considered bad luck, as mermaids often appeared before storms or other disasters and were believed to carry drowned men away to their kingdom at the bottom of the sea. Although encounters with mermaids and mermen often ended badly for humans, in some legends, these sea creatures married human partners and took completely human form to live on land.”
