Design by Kamma Claire: Deck the Halls

It's only Halloween weekend but the Holidays are already sneaking up on me. I just designed the flier below (click image to view larger) for the Presidio Motel's Deck the Halls pop-up mall on Dec. 4th in Santa Barbara. All 16 of the Presidio's motel rooms will be transformed into pop-up shops featuring the most unique and handmade wares for one night only. Not to mention live music, festive cocktails and merrymaking of all sorts. My favorite things!

Fringe Freak Out: Jil Sander Fringe Detail Gown

I absolutely love fringe but always have a hard time finding pieces that pay homage to it in a classy way. Jil Sander knocks it out of the park with her modern flapper inspired Fringe Detail Gown. Lust for and love it.

The Supply Room: A Santa Barbara Gem

I was finally able to visit the much anticipated Supply Room on my recent visit "home" to Santa Barbara over the weekend. I felt like a kid in a candy store getting the VIP after hours dressing room marathon treatment session!

Santa Barbara really needs more boutiques like the Supply Room. This is hands down the most unique and progressive shop in town.

Kenny and Chris's cozy boutique is located within the Presidio Motel on State Street. You'll find a perfectly curated assortment of trendsetting designers that you'd normally have to travel to LA or SF to find. There are high-end pieces you'll love forever like Rachel Comey's leather shoes, Mara Hoffman's gorgeous psychadelic print dresses (score!) and hip jewelry from All For the Mountain, all displayed artfully alongside talented local accessory designers like Camilla Bourbon and Steven Soria of Make.Smith. And, when I say "local designers" it is not a bad thing. These are high-quality pieces that easily sell alongside the larger, more established, designers featured in the shop. These are one of a kind pieces you won't find anywhere else, and help you stand out from the boring crowd.

They also carry some one of a kind home and travel accessories, to help you make your home just as special as your new outfit. Stock up on gold trimmed ceramic pots, perfect for displaying a succulent collection. Plush sheepskin slippers from WindWalkers in Bodega Bay are also perfect for keeping your toes warm while lounging around your well accessorized house!
