Hey Cupcake!

Hey Cupcake,

Did you miss me?

I missed you.

I just got back from a buy trip in Las Vegas and I’m so excited about all of the fabulous fall merchandise that’s slated to hit Roadkill Ranch & Boutique over the next month. From gorgeous holiday dresses, to glow-in-the-dark leggings, to western boots, I’m confident our eclectic mix will be more than stellar.

Aside from my crazy-busy daily routine (and distractions) of store stuff, web stuff, phone stuff, and boy stuff, I love to break for photo shoots. Wait! Did I say boy stuff? I meant business stuff.

It all started a few days ago when we received a splendid new dress from Heart of Haute. The beautiful design engraved with rich color combinations of lavenders and mints and etched with gold, took our breath away as we all fell into a swoon. (Just kidding, we all didn’t fall into a swoon, but it sounded really romantic.) As we were admiring our fancy frock, one of the girls said it resembled a cake. Our creative juices began to flow, and the rest is history. We ended up at Hapa Cupcakes in Fullerton the next morning for a photo shoot.

Hapa Cupcakes is the cutest, little cupcakery in town, and the owners are really sweet (pun intended). They were also featured on Cake Wars last June and won 3rd place, so they’re kind of a big deal. Luckily, we know a gal who knows a gal who knows another gal, and we were able to set up a shoot along with a custom-colored cupcake to match the dress.

Isn’t it amazing how one pretty dress can offer so much delicious energy? I hope you enjoy our mid-week blurb on dresses and desserts. So, the next time you get overwhelmed with “stuff”, just take a little sugar break (Did I mention all of their cupcakes are alcohol-infused?). Then, visit  Roadkill Ranch & Boutique to see more of our creative curation.

Stay Stylish,

Jules

When “Boss Lady” Mandie B. from Heart of Haute met me at the store a few days ago to view the new fall collection, I was beside myself. For the first time since inception, Heart of Haute has collaborated with an artist for an exclusive design on their clothing. And it’s feline-fab!

Heart of Haute is an independent, women-owned, clothing company specializing in retro-inspired dresses. They also happen to be one of our best lines at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique. Mandie always delivers great styles, fresh new prints and quality fabrics. This season she’s partnered with famed artist El Gato Gomez for an exclusive kitty-cat motif.

El Gato Gomez has gallery representation at the WonderGround Gallery at the Disneyland theme park in California, Creature Features in Burbank, California, The Harold Gollen Gallery in Miami, Florida, and the One-Shot Gallery in New York City. Her art work has also been featured at the amazing modernist cultural events, Tiki Oasis and Modernism Week in Palm Springs.

Since Mandie is a huge fan and avid collector of Gomez’s work, it only made sense to join unions. The mid-century-modern-esque styles consist of border-print dresses and full-circle skirts, matched with kitty-emblazoned, cropped cardigans. The collection is slated to hit Roadkill Ranch & Boutique in mid September and is expected to sell out!

Call the store at 714-773-1156 to book your pre-order, we don’t want any cat fights when the merchandise arrives.

Have a purrrfect day!
