Weekend fashion in Sacramento and beyond

Everyday Imaging

There's so much happening this weekend locally - from Sacramento to Granite Bay - that I'm getting the word out today and Friday so that you fashionistas will have time to prepare...and restock your checking accounts!

* First up, the trendy marketplace known as Quarry Ponds (pictured above) is hosting a "Fall 2007 Fashion Show in the Plaza" starting at 7 p.m. Friday. The show will take place in the central plaza, beneath the Kalwall archway (for those of you familiar with the European-style marketplace), at 5550 Douglas Blvd.

This is absolutely a destination shopping location because it has everything you need: fashion and food! Two great purchases that go great together.

The featured boutiques in Friday's show include: FF Apparel, Dionna K, Dara Denim, Rima, NAT Boutique, Shoefly and Obsoulete Boards.

Then, at 11 a.m. Saturday, the marketplace will turn things over to children's and maternity fashion, featuring adorable clothing from boutiques such as Posh Maternity and Silver Spoon.

* Next up, Serendipity Boutique (5362 H St.) will host a trunk show Friday and Saturday featuring the Jeanine Payer jewelry collection, which is based in San Francisco. Jeanine does rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Very different, very unique. Worth a look.


* Another place to check out if a great piece of jewelry is on your shopping list: the Pamela Skinner/Qwenna Howard Gallery (723 S St.), which will be featuring local designer Carolyn Cozad's Studio Work collection (pictured right) during this weekend's Second Saturday; the event is from 6 to 9 p.m.

Carolyn actually creates her works of art near The Bee in midtown, so I strolled by the other day and was amazed at her use of color and materials - including parts from a vintage bowling bowl!

Stay tuned to this space for more ....

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.

hide comments

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites.
