Sactown Blogger Lov'n

The Sacramento fashion blogger community is just one big lovefest! It's a little ridiculous and I love it.

All the bloggers are doing great things right now but here are my friendly favorites for this Friday:

Juniper James (aka Kari Shipman) - personal stylist and champion of everything Sacramento. This girl loves local! For the month of March she's partnering with Article Consignment in East Sacramento to bring her readers the best of the best from Article's racks. The partnership also features a Juniper James rack filled with hand picked lovelies in the style of Juniper James. And another reason why I love this girl? She featured yours truly in her Daily Fashion Inspiration last week. Hooray for polka dots.

Let is Reign (Skylar Mundy) - bright, bubbly, fresh and fashionable. This girl is genuine and a complete sweetheart. We got acquainted at Kari's birthday celebration at Article tonight. Her blog is inspired. I really love the cat-eye sunglasses editorial she posted this week.

ChiqueChic (Emily Allred) - basically my blogger guru right now. After spending all of Sac Fashion Week together we became fast friends. She filled me in on blogging secrets like how to get sponsored posts and checking out my page rank! Apart from her web-savy she also has a darling fashion blog. Here's her post about one of the emerging designers from fashion week, Brenda Vie.

The Citizen Rosebud (Bella Q) - No friendly blogger link-fest would be complete without mentions the woman who works tirelessly to get all us bloggers together on a regular basis and incessantly  encourages us to reach for the stars. I love her most recent post of her outfit for Sac Fashion week - so adorable. Also this week she's featuring a Shabby Apple give away, head on over to her site to enter.


Blogin' Lovin' Fo' Sho! Oh I am so glad you went to Kari's party. Bummed I couldn't make it but the immune system is a bit wobbly and I wasn't feeling up to it. If you do a write up of Ariticle Consignment let me know so I can link to it.

WE really do have a flourishing blog community here. Now we just all gotta meet and mingle!

And THANK YOU so much for mentioning me and my blog on your happening page! It means so much to me.

Sactown bloggers RAWK! -Bella Q

Firefly Portraits: The Crew of Serenity

I've been heard at work making this fun posters featuring the crew of Serenity with memorable quotes.
I've done everyone except Simon, mostly because I haven't found a compelling quote from him yet.
So here's a long graphic of all the posters, perfect for pinning! (hint hint).
Right now you can get $5 off any of these great prints, t-shirts or tote bags in my Society6 shop.

I Shot First - A Han Solo Halloween

This past Halloween I wanted to do something inherently sexy. Who is sexier than Han Solo? Answer: no one.

I started with pictures of Han. Specifically from "A New Hope."

Here are the elements: Off white, mandarin-collar shirt Black/navy vestDark pants with red stripesBlack boots (I already owned a pair)Belt and holsterBlaster
I started at Thrift Town, where I found a pair of dark slacks, a shirt, and a black suede jacket. I think I spent around $12. I cut the sleeves off the jacket and used red duct tape for the stripes. 
I ordered a toy blaster online, it only comes in white and orange. So I had to spray paint it. I used this tutorial.

If I was going to go further with this costume I'd make a replica of the belt, like this awesome woman did.

Luke really wanted to be Luke this year. His costume was a little more tricky. We bought a karate uniform online, he used a pair of khaki pants he already had and we tried to make the boots out of Ace Bandages, but that didn't w…

Guest Post - Hand-made roll-up panniers by Libby Bowles

It's bike month everyone! Don't forget to check out, and register to win prizes and such. In other exciting news, my amazing friend Libby can do anything! She saw my post about panniers a while back and got it in her head to make a pair of these roll-up brooks brand panniers - and she did. Here's the story:
Hey there Melody,  Remember these (Brooks roll-up panniers)?Well, I was so in love that I decided to make my own. They still need a few finishing touches but I was so excited I just had to show you. 
I'm going to Tandy Leather on Monday to get the studs for the little internal straps and maybe get a set of leather handles to sew on top so I can carry them like a satchel while shopping.  I made the pattern based on the size of a paper grocery bag so they should be big enough for two full bags of groceries! I think they look perfect on my Gazelle, don't you? (Yes, they look amazing).
I wanted to make them a little prettier on the inside so …
