Fashion on tour
I write a local fashion blog called Bows & Sparrows, which has afforded me the opportunity to meet some truly awesome and super stylish people, local and otherwise. Two such people are the San Francisco-based Lauren Bingham and Los Angeles-based Romy Itzigsohn, who are hoping to change the shopping landscape with their mobile boutique, MobShop.
The duo finds unique locations—old factories, courtyards and other unexpected locales—and uses rolling racks, mirrors and a makeshift dressing room to set up a store. The pop-up shop specializes in designer and vintage clothing at reasonable prices. Until now, Lauren and Romy have held court predominantly in their respective cities, but they’re taking the boutique on a West Coast tour that will land them in Sacramento this weekend.
The ladies of MobShop will hold their two-day shop at the Stitch model home (located in the alley at 1719 Capitol Avenue). For those unfamiliar with Stitch, it’s a citywide development that aims to revitalize Sacramento’s mostly underappreciated alleys into locales for some seriously covetable urban homes. According to Lauren and Romy, Stitch promises to be one of their most unique events thus far. Also on board for the event—which is being dubbed Curios & Notions—is Audrey Wells, proprietress of Fringe, who will bring her own unique aesthetic and impeccable taste to the event.
Shoppers can expect a well-curated collection of vintage and designer clothing, accessories, furniture, home decor and real estate. The multifaceted event will also feature art, live music (including the Midnight Moonshiners), a host of performance artists, a cooking demo, photography by Carmen Salazar and various food vendors (including Sugar Plum Vegan and the Mini Burger Truck).
It all takes place this Saturday and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. You will not want to miss this event. Seriously.
