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!
