Things have been quiet around here… because I’ve been prepping for a new pop-up shop! These colorful beauties and more will be available this August in my online store, plus I’ll be sharing it in person in Austin at MOSS on the 3rd and in San Francisco at Rare Device on the 17th & 18th. I can’t wait! FASHION LOVES COLOR is a traveling pop-up shop of ethically made, globally sourced goods. In it, I’m thrilled to feature Alyson Fox (accessories, art prints), Manimal (leather accessories), Teysha (shoes) and Vaalbara Designs (clutches), plus some of my own finds (pillows). Many items are one-of-a-kind, and all are inspired by the colorful textiles made by indigenous people from around the world. This pop-up came about after I was asked to speak at this year’s Texas Style Council Conference in Austin. I wasn’t sure that I could make the trip work, but the idea of hosting a pop-up shop while in town came up (thanks Jon!). I ran the idea past the owner at Rare Device in SF as well, who loved it, and suddenly we had a concept on our hands.
For the first Saturday in August 3, I’ll be set up in Austin at MOSS, a fantastic designer consignment shop. Alyson Fox will be there for the first few hours of the day. My friends at Standard Magazine have hooked us up with cocktails from Bone Spirits, a local farm-to-bottle distillery, which we’ll pour till it’s gone. The Texas Style Council Conference “shopping field trip” will visit the shop in the afternoon. That evening starting at 7, I’ll set up again at the conference’s Prom Party and Pop-up Shop, which is open to the public for a $20 ticket here. On Sunday at the conference, I’ll be speaking at noon about purchasing with purpose. Can’t wait to share more about the talk soon.
In San Francisco
In the middle of August, I’ll be at Rare Device all weekend! A shop I’ve admired for a long time, first opened in Brooklyn by Rena Tom, now located in my neighborhood. I hope to work with owner Giselle Gyalzen much more in the future. The lovelies of Scribe Winery will be pouring their vintages for a Saturday happy hour.
