15 minutes


There's a lovely little interview of me by Sarah Hansel on the back page of this week's Sacramento News & Review. Seriously. Never would I have ever predicted that little ol' me would be making it on the pages of the SN&R, or the Midtown Monthly, and this month I got a mention in both. Fucking rad, ladies and gentlemen. F.u.c.k.i.n.g. Rad. 

If you're not from these parts and still would like to read it, have no fear, I put a link to the article here.

Ya still in the mood for some little local reading? Check out Kerry's great article from her Fashion, Farms and Freedom blog. She's been hitting home-runs in great posts over there,  including this one.

Here's a Sacramento blog that hits a little more on the literary side of things than fashion, but with her love of all things design, a certain Chloe Daley has piqued my interest. Turns out, we are both RABID fans of Martin Mattox! You can check out Chloe's blog by clicking here.

And speaking of Martin Mattox: they've been busy as ever. Not only have Tim & Linda Arbogast (the brawn & brain behind the Martin Mattox brand) been burning the midnight oil with their design work AND keeping the Martin Mattox  well-stocked at the 'Trove, they have now started collecting seriously essential vintage men's wear. Offering a sharp sartorial selection of handsome vintage pieces, Martin Mattox is now doing for gents what they've been doing for living rooms:  offering pivotal pieces to spruce up or supplement what you already have. From what I've heard, the killer vintage Levi jackets, English Tweed blazers, and perfect plaid Pendletons have been flying off the shelves. 

If that's not enough already, Martin Mattox has just opened a second location in Carmichael.  Yesterday the doors opened in a new shop called Veranda, and in it, you'll find 2 rooms chock full of Martin Mattox finds. Here's the address in case you want to go shopping:

5916 Palm Drive, Carmichael, Ca 95608 
Hours: Thursday - Sunday 10:30am - 5:30 pm

Unfortunately, I won't be able to do any shopping this weekend; I'll be in the process of moving the Citizen Rosebud work studio into its new Headquarters. And basking in my 15 minutes. Happy weekend, peeps! -Bella Q

Thank you Kristy. Northern Cal is NOTHING like so-cal. we are nicer, and uh, less tanned.

I would LOVE to meet you. Come to SACTO! xo.
