If you don’t already know, I contribute to several publications with one of them being a local publication in Sacramento called IndieBlush Magazine. If you read my blog posts regularly, then you’ve probably seen the links to my recent articles. But this time, I’m writing on a huge and amazing fashion show and human art event I am helping produce. The show is called Elements, a high fashion inspired by Burning Man show along with an exclusive preview of Dysphoria.
Dysphoria is an high art human body experiment, combating Body Dysmorphic Disorder and bullying, which will be headed to Burning Man 2015. I have such the greatest pleasure of putting my fashion skills to use along with my love of music and working with the most amazing group of people. These people allow me to express myself and are willing to see what I can do and after a constant badgering like I always do when I have such a passion for something, they said yes and let me run with it.
We are now nearing the 2 week mark before the big show on December 12th. We will not only share the fashions of local boutiques, local designers, but the exclusive preview of Dysphoria. Body Dysmorphic Disorder affects 49% of men and 51% of women and children themselves experience this body image disorder, which stems from the constant bullying of the difference in their bodies. If you are local, please join us on this special evening on not only supporting me, but local merchants and designers, but more so the entire Dysphoria project.
For more information on the entire Dysphoria project please visit IndieBlush.org. You can also claim your VIP tickets at this site with your special code iblushVIP along with General Admission tickets as well. If you are unable to attend, please take the time to read about Dysphoria and it’s mission.

If you’re like me, or how I used to be, Black Friday shopping was a tradition to do the day after Thanksgiving. My mom and I would get up every morning the day after and start our Christmas shopping, but since being in the retail and fashion world, I’ve come to learn a few things that most retailers will not tell you. Those supposed “Black Friday” deals and sales, really aren’t anything special. Yes, maybe in the past they used to be this whole big hoopla of massive sales, but since the economic plunge several years ago, this in turn has caused retail to take huge profit losses.
With these loss of sales came the need to keep their customers spending money, even in a rough economy. So, what did they do? With the exception of some luxury brands, several retailers started to rethink strategies on how to maintain sales goals. In came sale after sale, especially with big retailers like Sears, JC Penny, Kohls, and others. That trend has continued throughout the last several years. We as consumers, tend to think that the only way to get really good deals on clothing items, is to wait for the sales like Veteran’s Day, Columbus Day etc. But did you know that most retailers, have sales consistently?
With the Christmas season approaching, it’s time for the oh so famous “Black Friday” shopping day in which retailers tend to lure consumers into thinking they’re getting the lowest price on that item they’ve been wanting. But “Black Friday” is really not the day to get those best deals. Retailers such as J Crew, Zara, TopShop Nordstrom, H&M and more are consistently having clearance sales throughout the year. Think about it, they have to make room for new merchandise and the only way to do that is clear out the old. I’ve put together a few tips and links to some sales that are currently in progress to make your holiday shopping a little easier and hopefully avoid the massive crowds at the mall.
1. If you can’t get to your favorite store in the mall such as Bloomingdales, H&M, or Victorias Secret and others often then check their website for sales and signup to receive email updates. This way you’ll be informed of any sales offers they are promoting for the week. I guarantee there is always a promotion they are running.
2. Online shopping is probably everyone’s favorite place to shop, there are so many deals that retailers offer online only so, again, be diligent on signing up for email updates.
So, there you have it, my own personal tips to help you find that best deal for all of your Christmas shopping needs. Below are just a few of my favorite retailers, but always shop around.

The little sister to J Crew has finally come to the Sacramento area. Until yesterday, the only way to shop at Madewell was to either travel to bay area or online. The store opened it’s doors at Arden Fair Mall and from what I hear, there is one slated to open in the Roseville Galleria Mall. J Crew has invested millions in developing the Madewell label and has taken the heritage Americana angle with the clothing, especially in the denim department. If you don’t know much about Madewell, take a look at some of their adorable clothing below, and if you want to stop in and shop, visit them at Arden Fair Mall.

People of the surrounding Sacramento area, gird your loins!! Zara, the Spanish clothing retailer has posted construction documents online with the City of Roseville. This means they plan to build a two-level store early next year at the Westfield Galleria at Roseville. I was told this a while back by an employee of another store in the mall, but wasn’t sure when all of this was to take place.
They have yet to formally announce it, but this just brings such pure unadulterated joy! This is just really good news because the closet Zara store to us is in the San Francisco and it’s just pure torment to do that 1hr and 30 min drive which at times could end up being a 2 or 3 hour drive depending on traffic. Zara is known for their on trend clothing, both casual and dressy.
Not to mention the prices, I think I could always walk out with something from there. So women of the city, if you love Zara as much as I do, or haven’t had the pleasure of shopping in one, just wait for some pure jubilant shopping. Keep your eye out for more updates here.
All of these looks and more can be found online at Zara.com

Didn’t we see this coming? I know I sure did, I mean come on, this is one of THE most coveted collections H&M has done since Isabel Marant. I was in Silicon Valley today and was hoping to get the chance to go to the H&M there because I knew the San Francisco store would have the collection. But It’s probably a good thing because I don’t think I would have had any chance on picking up any piece of the collection. Hopefully I’ll be able to get something from this hot collection.
Gird your loins!! This is going to be spectacular!! Designer steals at phenomenal pricing? Vestiaire Collective is a French market place such as ebay that will sell pre-owned designer clothing and launches today!! I am so excited to find treasures such as Isabel Marant and more for discounted prices. Read on for more information and see what treasures you can find.
