Fashion Friday-We're letting you in on a secret, tell everyone!

| Friday, January 25, 2013

Most of the time, secrets are told in trust
Some people are better at keeping a secret than others

It's not a malicious intent (if it is, get new friends) to let the secrets out
but more like verbal diarrhea that just happens.
People have learned to no longer let you in on
their life long secrets at the risk of it ending up on 
twitter, facebook, and instagram (with a photo of your face).

If you fall into the category of  "a bad secret keeper",
boy, do we have a secret for you!!

Us folk, at the Artists Within, 
have been busy working away to create
the best of the best, a one of a kind,  
And we want you to tell all your friends!

Launching February 11,2013
Our online academy includes interactive videos
industry relevant projects,
in-depth instruction on 
application, color theory, corrective techniques and more!

Email us for more information

And watch for us on Facebook
We are going to be running some wicked contests
with prizes for those early bird registrants 
and the loudmouths who spill the beans to 
everyone they know!
It's in your best interest to get talkin!

Much Love From,

The secret tellers Artists Within

Fashion Friday- Fashion Online; the Go-To sites to bookmark

| Friday, January 18, 2013

Sometimes the thought of hitting the mall is daunting;
Pushy people, pushy peoples screaming kids,
calamitous sale racks and ditzy sales people 
are often enough to drive us away

Enter online shopping, a gift from the Fashion Goddess' above

Online shopping has become the go-to tool for fashionistas, male and female,
to source out designer pieces not readily available,
to discover one off items that your co-worker won't show up wearing
 the day after you reveal it, 
to get seasonal inspiration when you catch the wardrobe blue's.

Here, 5 of our fave online shopping sites
Ch-ch-check it out!

First up is Nasty Gal

This site will curb your insatiable appetite for vintage and new trends while remaining friendly to budget conscious folk
Founder, Sophia Amoruso is only 28 years young and has already made Forbes list of Fashion's New Phenom

When Forbes article was published (July 2012), they claimed NastyGal was 
'on it's way to quadrupling sales to $128 million, 
racking up gross margins of more than 60%, 
up there with retail's most profitable ventures"
With Nasty Gal being a couple years wiser than an infant, 
this company is doing wonderful things for fashion and Sophia's bank account!

Retro and Indie fashion enthusiasts, ModCloth is the word!

ModCloth offers a super-sweet story of how they got started.
Founded by Susan Gregg-Koger and Eric Koger, high school sweethearts,
ModCloth was built on the foundation of the couple's mutual love for vintage and retro clothing.

Modcloth offers clothing, accessories, and home decor; vintage versions and vintage inspired ones too!
ModCloth has grown from their humble beginnings in a college dorm room to 
"America's fastest growing retailer"
in 2009 the popular site had a projected revenue of $15 mil
Fast forward to current, they are now employing over 300 people with a revenue of...
(we had a hard time finding any info on their revenue of 2012, but no doubt it's more than we have)

Clothing culture for him and her

Karmaloop consists of over 300 clothing brands that are
sure to raise any fashion junkie's heart rate
Leader of Karmaloop's self proclaimed rebel army, Greg Selkoe,
beat the odds to achieve the success of
what Karmaloop is today.
(we're sorry about the rogue sentence. The idea of 'rebel army' excited it and it refuses to now cooperate and conform)

From starting in his parents basement, 
to relocating 'headquarters' to a dilapidated piano factory 
where chasing undesirables was common occurrence, 
to now employing 130 culture kids in offices in Boston, New York and LA,
Karmaloop and its associated culture is killin' it!
It's estimated Karmaloop had a revenue of over $200 million in 2012,
with the .com site attracting more than 4.5 million monthly visitors
it seems as though Greg and his army will be living a lavish and stylish 'rebel army' life

With new sites popping up daily, there is always a way to put your hard earned money
towards that coveted piece for a stellar wardrobe!

Happy Friday Fashion Fiends

Much Love From,
