above: a Wendy Brandes genie necklace

This weekend, I will be heading to San Francisco to attend a dear friend's wedding. Of course, there will be plenty of "market research" during my free time, as well as interviews with local designers and boutiques. Since I launched my interview series this week, I have been so inspired by the indie spirit that it's given my creativity an extra kick in the pants. It's almost like being in love. To recap this week: Please check out the first interview with Brooklyn's Alter boutiques (they gave Dream Sequins a shoutout on their blog-- thanks, guys!) and the second interview with SF Indie Fashion, whose nearly encyclopediac knowledge of local boutiques is mind-boggling.

Here are some Weekend Links... Enjoy the weekend and please keep posting those sassy comments!

I'm glad you like the genie. P.S. She will call you "Master" if you like!

Hi Wendy- I was going to post something about your longer more intellectual piece, but couldn't resist the eyecandy.

Have a great trip!

I always love Wendy B's work. A genie necklace is brilliant!

Can't wait to hear about your travels.

Dream Sequins said...

AsianCajuns- thanks for stopping by! I am currently traveling back to NY from a packed weekend in the Bay Area. Pics and stories to follow!

I haven't seen it yet, but I'm hoping to catch it with a friend soon. I was supposed to see it with her last week but failed.

Hope you enjoyed San Fran. I'm about to buy my tickets for May. Yay

Thanks for linking my interview on AlixRose! You're so sweet!

Dream Sequins said...

Modelizer- Enjoy San Francisco! I certainly did!

Lisa- YES the genie necklace is awesome! I shouldn't be spending money right now... but...

Jordana - of course, my pleasure!
