Since we’ve been gone, a bundle of SF Indie Fashion news has piled up! (Apologies to anyone who has not received a reply or had their event posted on the calendar – we’re quickly getting back to speed and should be caught up by tomorrow). To give everyone proper time in the blog post spotlight, we’re splitting up news this week into a few different posts. Let’s start with sales, promos and discounts from local designers:
My Windup Bird – This local label is turning four in May. Many congrats to designer Wendy! Four years doing the indie street wear design thing is quite a feat. To celebrate, the online shop is offering a free tee with every order. Dude, free tee! What’s more, a percentage of all sales are donated to non-profits like FINCA.
Peggy Li – Peggy’s handmade jewelry is 20 percent off with coupon code save20 through May 13.
New Leaf -Pretty much everything (screenprint tees, hoodies, thermals) at this label’s online store is on sale right now.
Porcelynne – Jennifer is extending her online sale: 65 percent off lingerie, camis, etc. I always thought underwear would be one of those items I wouldn’t be able to find from an indie source. I scooped up some boy shorts and tanks from this Oakland-based indie lingerie designer a few weeks ago, and I’ve been very pleased with them (and the obscenely low prices). They fit really well – the tanks are great layering pieces. If you’re worried about pinpointing your size while ordering online, think about visiting Jennifer’s studio instead. She has flexible hours and a really nice live-work space where she displays her collections.
Spa Radiance – Looking for a posh way to pamper mom on Mother’s Day? Book an appointment for your mom for Saturday May 10th or Sunday May 11th, mention the spa’s Mother’s Day Special, and this ultra-luxe Marina spa will gift her with a goodie bag of all-natural skincare products during her treatment.
ooma – Time to detox. Luckily, at ooma, doing so doesn’t have to mean giving up wine or, um, anything else that we would never, ever do. Take your scary, toxic nail polish bottles to this North Beach boutique between now and May 15, and you’ll walk away with coupons for non-toxic nail polish from British company butterLondon. But that ain’t all. For giving up your old school polish, ooma will reward you with 15 percent off your entire purchase.
