Introducing Cabinet d’Envie Wardrobe/Style Consulting

Introducing Cabinet d’Envie Wardrobe/Style Consulting

Cabinet d’Envie is a wardrobe/style consulting and personal shopping service created by San Francisco residents Jennifer Bakken and Josh Ehren. After years of helping family and friends revamp their wardrobes for free, the husband and wife team was inspired to turn their styling gift into a business.

French for “closet of envy”, Cabinet d’Envie offers a wide array of services for clients, including a style and wardrobe review, professional shopping, shopping tours, seasonal updates, and special event shopping.  Another unique service offered by Cabinet d’Envie is the “Livre d’Envie”—French for “look book”—which includes imagery of your new and old wardrobe pieces, coordinated in ways to visually illustrate how to dress for any occasion.

“Most people come to us because they are very dissatisfied with the current state of their closet,” said Jennifer, who has 10 years experience in fashion and retail marketing and advertising. “Many feel the purchases they’ve made for themselves over the years have not been smart choices in helping get to where they want to be as well-dressed women and men. Others come to us feeling their wardrobe is full of many dated or ill-fitting items and they need an expert to guide them as to what to get rid of and where to start in purchasing the new.”

Based in San Francisco, Jennifer and Josh are also able to travel to their clients in other parts of the country. Working together, the couple is able to offer clients the male and female perspective. The pair takes a positive, encouraging approach to consulting with clients, showing how a few simple changes in their wardrobe can transform their overall style and outlook. The end goal is clients who have learned valuable tools to enhance their wardrobe on their own.

Cabinet d’Envie is available for expert interviews on style and wardrobe planning. To learn more about Cabinet d’Envie, please visit www.cabinetdenvie.com.

Russh Mode Denim Opens Its First Store on Robertson Blvd.

Russh Mode Denim Opens Its First Store on Robertson Blvd.

In a time when many shops are closing their doors, premium denim collection Russh Mode is slated to open their first store on Robertson Blvd. this Wednesday, November 25. The newly launched Los Angeles label focuses on flattering cuts with jeans retailing for $150 to $200.

Russh Mode denim comes in classic skinny, bootcut, and straight-leg styles, including popular styles Lola and Sophisticate. Rises range from 8” to 9.5” and are available in sizes 25” to 32”. Their signature curved back pocket and contoured stitching gives jeans an enhanced fit for all body types.

Russh Mode, a play on the phrase “rush mode”, is designed by Los Angeles native George Arrington. Drawing from his background working for Paige Premium Denim, Peoples Liberation, and William Rast, Arrington launched Russh Mode in late 2008.

The Russh Mode store will open its doors at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and is located at 352 N. Robertson Blvd. @ Rosewood Ave. (between Beverly Blvd. and Melrose Ave.), West Hollywood, CA 90048.

“In order for us to carry an item, it must be good for our planet in some way,” says co-owner Lauren McGinty.  “Whether it’s in the materials used to create it, the fair labor practices in place for the artisans that make it, or the ethical business practices conducted by the designers and companies that we work with.  Of course it also has to be stylish, and the more unique it is, the better.” 

Verdessence was conceived by Lauren McGinty and Michael McCarthy out of a desire to promote positive change in the world, and an appreciation for products created by businesses exercising social and environmental responsibility.  Verdessence is dedicated to the preservation of our planet while celebrating the beauty created from sustainable, fairly traded, organic, handmade, recycled and natural resources. 

Verdessence also gives back, contributing 1% of sales to environmental groups through their membership in 1% for the Planet, an organization that connects business owners and environmental non-profits, as well as Climate Cycle which raises money for the installation of solar panels in elementary schools.
