Here in Folsom, CA, there aren’t a lot of really great stores or boutiques at that I like to frequent or even talk about. I have to travel to El Dorado Hills, Roseville or Sacramento to get a really great selection of boutique clothing and even if wanted to do some really big shopping, I’d have to go to Nordstrom in The Galleria At Roseville or if I wanted to go even bigger, I have to travel to San Francisco and don’t even get me started on that. But what I’m trying to get at is that Button Up Boutique in The Palladio in Folsom is really the only shop I frequent other than Whole Foods and stuffing my face with food and shopping does not really faire well with me these days, but I always seem to find something that ‘need’ at Button Up. Button Up is owned by Runway Boutique in El Dorado Hills and which is another great store in the area. The good thing about this boutique is that they have a great selection of denim, t shirts, dresses, loungewear etc.. and they carry a lot of contemporary brands such as Wild Fox and Chaser. I have such fun going around to my favorite stores and just looking at the great items they carry and I just have to share with everyone else!

In continuance with my posts on the great fashions from the local boutiques in my area, Lazio Boutique in El Dorado Hills Ca is right on target for the season. Lazio is not your ordinary boutique. The owner Sara makes sure that she buys clothing that you really can’t find anywhere else. What makes that special you say? When trends come and go, and everyone else is wearing the same style, a woman doesn’t want to get caught wearing the same item as another. Sara makes sure that she orders only the chicest collections from designers such as Rory Beca, Genetic Denim, LnA and other brands that you would find in sunny Los Angeles. You can never go wrong by putting together mixed prints, especially with such bold, bright colors as below. Wearing silk during the spring and summer will definitely help you keep your cool, plus you look sassy. Take a look at the fashion shoot at Lazio in El Dorado Hills Ca and see which style you like best and which you’d prefer to wear; if not all!

I am so pleased and honored that the TBD/SAVVY department at my go to store aka Nordstrom Roseville Galleria allowed me to do my fashion shoot in their department. Its really bad when all of the stylist know you by name and when other employees know you by name too! But hey, I’m not ashamed to say Nordstrom is probably my favorite department store mainly because of the employees there, the service, the services available and the selection of items.
On To Shopping
Lindsey, the manager of the TBD/SAVVY department was so gracious to allow me to use the clothing from the department and have my model wear them. I couldn’t contain myself because their new shipments are just to die for. My girls had so much fun trying the clothes on, walking around the store and just loving having their pictures taken. We all fell in love with outfits I put together and will be purchasing several items. I hope you all enjoy the first of many to come fashion shoots from Nordstrom!

So, I’ve collectively created a new addition to my blog by adding “vlogs” on my outfits of the day from the local boutiques that I love to share with everyone. As usual, I use my lovely, beautiful, gorgeous daughter (a bit vein am I with her? lol!). But wait, I also added my oldest lovely, gorgeous daughter in up coming posts too! I am really just so excited about this new addition to my blog. The first boutique up is a boutique called Mirror Mirror, which I have written several posts on. I love the feel of this boutique because they carry an eclectic collection of clothing, shoes and accessories. I think what I like most about Mirror Mirror is their prices, they have low to mid and mid to high items, which is a must for any shopper looking for a fabulous find at a great price. Who doesn’t love it when you find something you absolutely love at a great price? I’ve styled 5 outfits of my favorite items from Mirror Mirror to share as modeled by my lovely daughter. By the way, if you’re local, don’t wait too long to pop into Mirror Mirror, as these fab outfits will not last long. Hope you enjoy!

Well, here we are, my very first “photography” shoot. I’m trying my hand at doing modeling shoots using my beautiful daughter and her beautiful friend wearing clothing from a few of the boutiques I love to do posts on. Lazio is one of them and Sara Root, the owner has a keen eye for choosing the most savvy and stately clothing. Which is why I wanted to do my first OOTD post on her clothing and her boutique.
My daughter, Alexandra on the far left wearing a wool bird sweater by MIH and which is the last one I might add, I personally bought this sweater myself and I just love it. She’s also wearing wool leggings by Pendleton. Her friend Cami, is wearing a black leather jacket by AS by DF, white t shirt by LNA and grey leggings by LNA as well.
Here they are reading #Lucky Magazine. Alexandra is wearing one Lazio’s new spring arrival, a jumper by Rory Beca, Rory Beca is a Los Angeles based designer who is known for her soft silk shirts, dresses and more. Cami is wearing a sequined top by AS by DF and is 1/2 off right now I might add. The skinny jeans she is wearing are by Genetic Denim and 1/2 off as well and the wool hat is by Hat Attack.
The Perfect Little Black Dresses!! These girls are gorgeous! Oh to be young again!! Alexandra is wearing THE cutest black silk dress, again by Rory Beca and Cami is wearing a black leather dress by AS by DF. These dresses are great for a dinner date.
Stay tuned for my next OOTD shoot with these two gorgeous girls!
There is just something so amazing about a person who stays strong as they go through trials and tribulations in their life. But when a person is diagnosed and going through cancer, but yet stays positive throughout it all says a lot. Nici Dale Mayer of Mirror Mirror Boutique in Cameron Park Ca is one of these persons.
When you look at her, you would never imagine that she had just went through a round of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. After not seeing her for a few months, I met with Nici a few days ago and I was not expecting to see her look as amazing as she did. Of course the entire outfit she was wearing was from Mirror Mirror and I loved everything she had on.
What makes it even more amazing is that it wasn’t the first time she’s gone through a battle such as fighting cancer. Nici was first diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in August of 2012 and underwent 6 months of chemo. But not only with the support and love from her family, she maintained a positive outlook on it all. After all of the treatments to beat the cancer, she had gone into remission.Thats when she and her mother decided to open a boutique up and share their love of shopping and most of all shopping together. This boutique has been a blessing for her, it’s not only given her the opportunity to “shop” all the time, its given her the opportunity to run a clothing store with her mother and give back to other cancer patients. Nici and her mother give a portion of the proceeds of their sales to the American Cancer Society and she has also started a wig project for women who are battling cancer and have loss their hair due to chemotherapy. In August of 2013 Nici was again diagnosed with recurrent Hodgkins Lymphoma, even through this Nici has still managed to maintain such a positive outlook on life, on her cancer and on their boutique. The doctors are optimistic that Nici will stay in remission because of the type of bone marrow transplant that was done. There is no other way than to continue to go up for Nici and Mirror Mirror. If you were faced with what Nici has gone through, do you think you would be as strong and positive? I myself couldn’t say, I don’t know how I would feel, but what I do know is what Nici and her mother have put together is something special and I know she’ll stay cancer free and I wish the boutique only luck and prosperity.
There are many boutiques I frequent and many that I just rave about also. Boutiques are that one special store where you can find articles of clothing that you just can’t find at a department store and they must really be recognized more.
Planet Blue on Beverly Dr in Los Angeles Ca is one of those special boutiques, that I just have to rave about. I love how when I walked in the boutique, I really felt in Los Angeles, it just has that typical Southern California feel to it. They carry a wide selection of clothing from jeans, t-shirts, sweatshirts, intimate apparel, dresses, tops and more. In addition to those items, they also carry brands that are directly from Los Angeles such as Rebel Yell. If you love brands such as Vince, Current Elliott and Wild Fox you won’t be disappointed. But that’s just a fraction of brands they carry. You can shop from the comfort of your home on their site Shop Planet Blue If visiting their store isn’t an option. Or visit the site just to check it out, you’ll love it.

One particular boutique that I love to share with you all is Lazio Boutique in El Dorado Hills Ca. It’s a small, unique and very fashion forward. You won’t find the same collection of clothing at this boutique than what you would find at others. But that is what gives each boutique that I showcase their own uniqueness. That’s what is love about my town and surrounding area. I want to show you some amazing new items that Lazio received. There’s the good and the bad, the good, such adorable items, the bad, they go too quick! They carry only a certain size run, so when the size is gone, it’s gone. But they have the access to reorder sizes if it’s available.

Love love Lazio!
As we shop and look for fall outfit inspirations, little do we know that they aren’t as far as we think they are. They are all around us, at major department stores to small clothing boutiques. Love shopping at my local boutiques, because I find the clothing that not everyone has and being different from everyone is what I’m about. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be standing next to a person that is wearing the same thing as me. How awkward is that? I’ve written about several of the boutiques in my area and what they carry. Each one has their differences and cater to a different customer, but you won’t see the same items at the same boutiques or at the department store. One of my favorite boutiques is Button Up, they have a vast collection for everyone and they have shoes and accessories. I’ve put together some Pinterest inspirations and more that you can find at Button Up Boutique in Folsom at the Palladio.

So, I went for my customarily check up on Neveah Boutique Spa and Salon today and I found some great items to feature. Michael Stars is known for their extreme comfort and fit, which has been tried and true throughout the years. This particular style fits and is flattering on any body shape because of the drape in front and back. Not only is it flattering, but comes in the most striking, vibrant colors.
Neveah is also received in semi customizable belts made by Los Angeles based company Streets Ahead. They not only make marvelous belts, but also make spectacular leather cuff bracelets. I was tempted, but did not buy surprisingly! I was quite proud of myself.
If you love tie dyed, Neveah also received a shipment of tie dyed tanks and shirts by Red Haute, they are really impressive in person and last but not least, a new jewelry line by Jill Michael and Neveah is 1 of only 20 accounts nationwide to carry some of her staggering collection.
Local customers, don’t wait to get in to view these fabulous items because as you know, “now you see them, now you don’t”!
