Quick visual cliff note post of our trip to Vegas for the Project and Capsule show. As you know we are a designer resale consignment store, so our focus wasn't to find any new clothing lines (just yet), but to discover some designer jewelry as they are the hardest to stock and keep in the store. We were successful in finding some really cool jewelry such as Gabriela Artigas and a various number of other indie designers, but not that many. The trip was kind of on a whim, so attending Project was not a planned one. Le sigh. Being there without a map of a hit list made it daunting even after an hour as there are vendors everywhere. The ankle cuff pictured above with the chain was by far one of our favorite finds. Someone pointed out that they look like shackles, but paired with the perfect sandal or heel would put your ankle game on the map. Holler.

Snapette Will Be at BBLA!

The app for snap-happy shopoholics and fashionistas will be present at The Caravan Pop-Up Shop premiere party! The Snapette girls will be showing guests how to use the app that lets users find stores based on their style and geographic location. It's kind of like foursquare and yelp but is more image-driven and catered specifically for fashion. Users snap a photo of an item they like at a store and tag what item it is. Once uploaded, other users on Snapette can then see that product available for that specific retailer. It's a great tool for consumers but also benefit retail businesses! Can't wait to have the Snapette ladies at BBLA! And thank you for being one of our lovely sponsors! 

Download Snapette at the app store now! It's free!

What Will We Toast With at The Caravan Premiere Party?

None other than some pink bubbly from our fabulous sponsors at Stella Rosa! That's right, these wonderful peeps are making sure that no one at our party goes thirsty. And as for our guests who may need some non-sparkling thirst quenchers, our friends from Boxed Water are hooking us up with some good old H2O. Why is it called "boxed" water? Because it's packaged in cute boxes instead of bottles...think of a trendy milk carton. Their adorably artistic packaging makes them the logical choice for any fashion event! And the fact that they're better for the environment because they're from a sustainably managed source is an added bonus!

Stay tuned for more updates. Coming up.....What Will We Munch On at The Caravan Premiere Party? To find out more about The Caravan at BBLA, read this!
