Giveaway: Win an Afternoon of Inspiration at Pulp Fashion

We love Scoutmob. Not only do they offer great deals in this crowded sea of group-buying sites, but they’re all free. We also love Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave, who fashions simple paper into the most incredibly intricate sculptural pieces. Lucky for us, today Scoutmob is offering 50% off tickets to see Pulp Fashion, an exhibit of de Borchgrave’s work at the Legion of Honor – and it’s totally free.

To fatten up the deal, the awesome folks at Scoutmob are giving prizes to two lucky SF Indie Fashion readers who subscribe to Scoutmob today. That’s right…two lucky art lovers will each receive two free tickets to Pulp Fashion and the accompanying exhibit catalogue. To enter to win, just join the SF mob. Makes that crane we just folded look like child’s play.

This post sponsored by Scoutmob. We love our sponsors and hope you will, too. They help keep San Francisco’s independent fashion community alive and well by making it possible for us to bring you San Francisco fashion news, interviews and events all week long.

Lazy Legs? Shop BellJar Online (+Win a Special Something)


While we would highly recommend an in-person visit to Mission boutique BellJar, we also know how busy fashion fans can be. And sometimes, our legs are just too tired to walk another inch after trekking around all week (though our fingers always seem more than capable of clacking out online orders via the Internets. Go figure). When next you find yourself facing this dilemma, you’ll be heartened to know that BellJar recently launched its very first online shop.

Stocked with many of the great wearables and finds for the home that you’ve most likely drooled over in-store, the online shop gives easy access to Claus Porto bath accessories, Kittinhawk hair accessories, Claire Hummel necklaces and apparel by the likes of Saivanna Black, Olga de Polga, Mink Pink and many others.

As if you needed further enticement to check out the new shop, here are two ever-so-convincing reasons. First, you can save 15 percent off online orders this month with the discount code 7X7SDFBJLRS. Second, we’re giving away a $50 gift certificate to BellJar in the newly launched SF Indie Fashion newsletter this week. Check it out for details on how to win.

Speaking of the SF Indie Fashion newsletter, have you signed up? It’s a quick blast of local fashion news, events, deals and giveaways dropped in your inbox each week. We promise to be short and sweet and in love with all things local. Hope you’ll get on the list (sign up at right).
