Before I knew about Fast Fashion, my priorities were price, fit and adorableness. After my research, I am a whole new person.

Fast fashion is a huge problem for our environment. Fashion designer and activist Orsola De Castro says “There is a joke in China that you can tell the “it” color of the season by looking at the rivers.”

So what is fast fashion? Fast fashion is rapidly produced, cheep clothing by mass-market retailers in response to the latest trends.

What does fast fashion do to the environment? Fast fashion uses sweat shops, toxic chemicals, increasing high levels of toxic waste and water pollution.

How do I know what I am buying isn’t fast fashion? Research your favorite brands. Talk to the sales team at your favorite boutique. Look at where the clothes are made. There are still manufacturers who employ children! So take advantage of Google. Know the brands you love.

Other tips to help when you source your clothing ethically:
-Buy timeless pieces instead of trends
-look at the quality. Try to find pieces that will last at least two years or more.
-wash by hand and try to use your dryer less.

At Utopia and Off the Grid we do our best to source our brands ethically. We are sending this message to raise awareness and ask you, do you trust your favorite boutiques?

Using IMovie is one of my favorite ways to show product. You can show how the item is worn, add text, edit, duplicate, split video, add voice overs and so much more. For the rest of the week I will be offering my time, over the phone to help walk you through how to make product video using IMovie. If you have an iPhone the app should already be there. Call (505)365-2964 Tuesday - Saturday 10am - 3pm
Here is an example of the last product video we did for our boutiques!

What not to wear... We often post how to dress for our body types, wear complementary colors, dress age appropriately... but really, it’s just a loose guideline. If I followed every rule I wouldn’t feel like me in my clothes. I’ll never give up my band tees, oversized purses, giant jewelry, ridiculous shoes, BUT MOSTLY, the color BLACK! And sometimes, when I feel like it, I’ll even wear my devil horns or cat whiskers for the day.

So, what not to wear after the age of... OTHER PEOPLES OPINIONS!

What is something you would never give up??

Last night, our store Utopia had a fashion show at a local restaurant. It made their dinner and our customers were enchanted. Partnering with a local business to cross promote can really boost both businesses while giving your customers an experience they'll talk about and love.

We had a blast at the fashion show last night! Thanks to our audience, our models Jacqueline, Arlene, and Alex, and our photographer, Daniel Quat. A special thanks also to La Plancha de Eldorado for hosting.

🎃👻 For Halloween I have been creeping everyone out by asking to inspect their veins. 🧛‍♀️ The reason is not for blood, but to check the colors and undertones of their skin! Here is what I have come up with...

Green veins - warm tones
Blue, Purple - cool tones
Blue, green - olive tone
If your veins are not noticeable - neutral

Skin Undertones Chart: Warm, Cool, Neutral, Pink, Yellow, and More

I have been reading more about skin tones and what colors can complement a look. I have a fun experiment I’ve been working on... I’ll keep you posted and share my tips on how it worked out next week!

Until then, here is an article found helpful.

When it comes to makeup, color is often what we’re drawn to the most. It’s also common to love a color at the store only to find it doesn’t look right when you put it on. Much of this has to do with your skin’s undertone. Here’s how to identify your undertone and find the best foundation a...

We All Get Chomped

WE ALL GET CHOMPED
A few years back, I read Annie Dillard's Pilgrim on Tinker Creek. The Pulitzer Prize winning book rocked me to my core and helped me see things in a new way. Dillard's intense observations about the natural world forced me to embrace a stark reality. We all get chomped. Every single living creature is nibbled upon every day. That beautiful flower in the garden is a marvel, but on close examination its stems and petals have been chewed, ripped, and broken. Dillard helped me understand that beauty does not reside in perfection, but in tenacity, vitality, and the will to survive. Read more here: https://boutiquehack.com/blog/we-all-get-chomped/

TOPIC: OFF-PRICE

What is off-price?

Off-price products - this is surplus inventory that manufacturers have marked down significantly in an effort to recoup some of their cash. In order to buy off-price product, the manufacturers require bulk purchases, so these buys aren't very accessible to boutiques because they lack the capital or storage space to handle bulk purchases. We make the bulk purchase and then offer it to boutiques at smaller quantities.

After years in the boutique business, we’ve learned a few things about how to survive.

We’ve been in the boutique business for years. We’ve watched discount chains and Ecommerce nibble away at our bottom line. We’ve struggled to stay competitive in an environment that values low prices over quality and service and we’ve watched too many of our suppliers and competitors go out of business. We’re tired of it and we’re guessing you are too.

Boutique Hack exists to help vendors and boutiques remain financially solvent without polluting their brands or dilluting their value. We do that by solving a twofold problem. The problem is this:


  • Most manufacturers over-produce or have excess inventory due to returns and store closures. Many sell through traditional off price channels, but many can’t because to do so would devalue their brands and/or undercut the boutiques who are their most important customers. Consequently, they have too much capital tied up in merchandise they haven’t been able to sell. However, selling that inventory in pack sizes relevant to most of their customers is too expensive. Off price merchandise needs to be sold in volume.

  • Most boutiques would love to buy more off price merchandise to increase their profitability or directly compete with lower priced outlets. However, most can’t afford the capital to buy in volume, don’t have the necessary storage, or can’t bring in too much of the same item. 36 - 108 piecesof a single style, regardless of the discount, is too many for most stores.
