Summer Happenings at The Headquarters SD

With summer in full swing and The Headquarters at Seaport being in a prime spot in San Diego, here are some updates and activities for you to enjoy! In addition to shopping, the Headquarters will have local musicians every Sunday in the outdoor courtyard area, and free salsa dancing with Salsa Under the Stars on Friday, July 15 from 6 to 9 p.m. 


If you’re looking for dinner before a Padres game, the MLB All-Star activities, or Comic-Con, Puesto, Flour & Barley, Season’s 52 and Eddie V’s are great family-friendly options just a short walk from the Gaslamp area. 

In addition to live entertainment throughout the summer, the Headquarters now has four new unique extended “pop-up” shops, including: 
  • Cherry Hills Market - Modeled on New York City’s traditional general stores, CherryHills Market™ sells home decor, hand-crafted spices, signature infused and imported olive oils and balsamic vinegars, artisanal chocolate and a wide array of unique gifts and home accessories. The brand focuses on simple and sustainable items, many of which are reclaimed, hand-made or in some way made unique or better by human hands.
  • CoCo Rose – Each piece of the CoCo Rose Collection is hand selected by owners Shannon and Eileen, during their adventures in Bali, giving women of all ages, shapes, and styles the bohemian Balinese feeling of serenity and beauty. There are a ton of beautiful dresses, jewelry, bags and accessories perfect for summer at this gorgeous boutique.
  • Lori L. Fine Art Gallery - Local artist Lori L. uses acrylic painting on etched metal to create unique pieces of art inspired by sunsets, sunrises, waves and nature.  Lori also features ten other local artists in her new Headquarters' gallery.
  • United Streets of Art - Opened earlier this week, United Streets of Art focuses on self-expression. Just as graffiti artists see a blank wall opportunity for expressing themselves, United Streets of Art see their accessories as vehicles for creativity. They deliver high-quality phone cases, belts, wallets, bags, watch bands, and other accessories, all with an urban edge.

Designer Spotlight: Killem With Chic


Hi SD Style Bloggers, it's Devon from Seventeen Dresses. I recently had the chance to chat with one of San Diego's talented designers, Mariela Torres of Killem With Chic. Mariela is a San Diego native who left her full time job to pursue her own fashion lines. She hopes to inspire women to be confident and follow their passions. Her playfully clever designs will be part of Fashion Week San Diego 2016. She is the ultimate #girlboss!


DEVON: Are you originally from San Diego? What part of town do you call home?
MARIELA: I was born and raised in San Diego. I have lived all over, Paradise Hills, Chula Vista, Bonita, Eastlake, Little Italy and Downtown so, all of San Diego feels like home. I love the energy and vibrance of this city.

DEVON: What inspired Killem With Chic?
MARIELA: I've been in the fashion industry for about ten years. I have done so much in that time - closet clean outs, buying for boutiques even running a lease shop inside Bloomingdale's. Starting this line is something I have wanted to do for years. Last year presented many challenges in my life which inspired me to follow my dream. Tee shirts will never go out of style and I love the idea of producing a witty twist on a classic tee.


DEVON: What do you love most about running you own business?
MARIELA: What I love most is the fact that I get to be creative daily. It's such a beautiful thing. I also love that I am my own boss lady.

DEVON: Have you always had an interest in fashion?
MARIELA: I have always had a passion for this industry. Ever since I can remember I have loved clothing and styling. I am obsessed with color and print but, you'll most likely always see me wearing distressed jeans and a leather jacket. Anyone daring enough to wear whatever the hell they want is inspiring!


DEVON: What's next for Killem With Chic?
MARIELA: I have so many exciting projects at the moment. My shirts are in stores and online boutiques. I'll be showcasing at Fashion Week San Diego this year and am also in the middle of building up my website with other awesome brands. It would be cool to see my tee's in department stores or on a celebrity! Hit me up RiRi.

Local Business Spotlight: La Femme Chic Consignment Boutique

Hi San Diego Style Bloggers, it’s Devon from Seventeen Dresses. I don’t know about you, but I can't resist a good consignment store. If you haven’t already been, you have to check out La Femme Chic Consignment in Solana Beach! After meeting at a dog park in Del Mar, owners Debra and Mindey became fast friends. The two ladies combined their business-savvy minds with their love of fashion, and made La Femme Chic Consignment into what it is today.

Entering the shop is like walking through your dream closet. With dazzling chandeliers and vintage Chanel, what more could a girl ask for?! Needless to say, I had a blast catching up with Debra and Mindey, the fabulous owners of La Femme Chic.


DEBRA
Q: Are you originally from San Diego? What part of town do you call home? 
A: Neither Mindey or I are native San Diegans.  Mindey was raised in LA and I am British, born and raised in London.  San Diego has been my home for 5 years.

Q: What inspired you to open La Femme Chic?  
A: Purchasing LFC was Mindey's brain child.  After founding the successful Del Mar Dress Company, she seized the opportunity to buy LFC from owners who were not making it work.  I approached Mindey to join the company as a partner nearly two years ago as I was both intrigued and fascinated by the concept of smart designer shopping at more realistic pricing.

Q: What do you love most about running your own shop?  
A: Personally I love being responsible for making someone so happy with their new purchase.  Our items are selective, high end and really special so to find someone who loves something that they may not have had the opportunity to purchase in the original store is wonderful.  I also love the idea that we are building a brand that is consignor centric, putting the people who own these amazing products first and then finding a new home for their once loved designer pieces. 

Q: Did you always have a passion for fashion?  
A: I wanted to be a fashion designer when I was young but instead took a more academic approach to my studies and work.  LFC feels to me like I have a second chance at that first, young dream.

Q: What is your favorite piece that has been consigned?  
A: There have been so many that it's difficult to choose but, one piece that sticks in my mind was a Valentino dress that was just gorgeous.  A customer came in with her husband and when she tried it on, the store went silent and her husband's mouth dropped.  It looked as though Valentino designed it just for her and at a fraction of the original price, our customer was very happy.


MINDEY
Q: Are you originally from San Diego? What part of town do you call home?  
A: I spent my summers coming to San Diego with my family for the beach and horse racing. I finally moved here over 20 years ago.

Q: What inspired you to open La Femme Chic?  
A: We started Del Mar Dress Company three and a half years ago. It all started over a cocktail.  Me and my friends were wondering what happens to all the gorgeous dresses that are only worn once and two weeks later our company began. Last week we had our two year anniversary in our current location!

Q: What do you love most about running your own shop?  
A: Same as Deb's answer for why she loves owning our shop.  Also, the this is like my fantasy wardrobe.  Everything that comes in I love. I only wish that all of these pieces were for my personal closet.

Q: Did you always have a deep interest in fashion?  
A: My Mother worked in the garment district in downtown LA.  We went to fashion shows and wore beautiful clothes.  I always loved shopping and dressing my very stylish Mom.  Since then, I've just always loved fashion and labels.

Q: What is your favorite piece that has been consigned?  
A: There have been many favorites;  currently we have a ridiculous stunning pair of Louis Vuitton alligator boots. Yes, the Valentino dress was also stunner as is the Chanel coat we currently have. I can not help but admire it daily.
