Hello dear readers,
Stateside, things have been a bit rough, what with a tanked economy, a politically charged climate and strident divisions of opinion on how to deal with our basket full of problems. Victory gardens aside, my hope is for everyone to tighten their fashionable belts and save their pennies by spending wisely.
Sacramento boutique Cuffs has a little patriotic incentive to shop their online shop this weekend holiday. Go to shopcuffs.com and save some green. Mention "firecracker" when you checkout and get 15% off your purchase.
On a very happy note, it was quite a treat to get a mention on Become.com as a "Style Blogs of the Week." Featured are some really wonderful bloggers, and I'm honored to see the Citizen Rosebud counted among them.
Included is one of my favorites, local stylista extraordinaire, Lisa M of Starship Narcissus. She has incredible style and rocks a finely curated thrift-store clothing collection, as well as being an intensely lovely person.
