I have always been inspired by the creativeness of clothing boutiques from floor to ceiling, I am drawn to textiles, lighting, colors and bling. Since our mom and pop shop is located in Old Sacramento, which is an outdoor tourist area, we find that not a lot of tourists are out in our part of town when it's raining so on rainy, winter days, I like to venture out.
We headed over to the Fountains, in Roseville for the first time and the one boutique that stood out to me the most was S.W.A.K. aka Sealed With A Kiss. They're also a small business and have just one other boutique in South Lake Tahoe. What drew me to it was the way it was designed. The racks were above white platforms and just a couple of different pieces hung from above to give a floating clothing effect. The clothing styles were exactly what I like, casual & trendy with Miss Me Jeans, cool tunics & sweaters. They also had a men's department with cool jeans & shirts for men and a children's section as well. I also found some very interesting and unique mannequins like the bejeweled bathing suit mannequin and the small area of fancy dresses. They also have two massage lounge chairs for your stress free convenience, how cool is that?!
Our adventures didn't stop there, we headed over to Lids at Arden Fair Mall because we had to get some monogrammed caps for U.BE.U. Fashion and OEMG, LLC, aka Onyx Entertainment Management Group, LLC, our new business venture in managing Artists, Vocalists, Songwriters, Musicians and Events, contact Darrell at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're looking for artist management.
The stores that caught my eye were the lovely dresses they had at Cache. Cache always has the nicest selection of long gowns and mid-length dresses for special occasions. Francesca's Collections was another great store that reminded me of how most outdoor store-front boutiques are set up with the sandwich chalkboard out front and the gazillion pieces of perfectly placed fashion jewelry on the display tables right when you walk in. Of course, I had to stop in Forever 21 and what caught my eye there were the funky & unique false eyelashes that came in a box of three. Forever 21 never ceases to amaze me with the trendy & fun things they have to offer.
If you happen to be in these areas, definitely pay them a visit. Sacramento has a lot of great places to shop!!
