Hats off to Daisical Industries

Posted in Friends, Neighbors and Regulars, It's Bona Fide! by propermountain on July 6, 2010

Check out what Allyson, favorite Home Slice bartender, has been busy as a bee with:

At Home Slice we talk a lot about being bona fide.  With each new wonderful success (and the inevitable hiccups that come with growth), we strive to remain sincere in our approach to service, our product, our design, and most importantly, our attitude—no compromise.  Keepin’ it real is an ideology we always want Home Slice to represent.

We are in this business for the love, and we think it shows.   None the less, keepin it real is work! You have to constantly remind yourself to stop, put your head down close to your heart and listen.  Amid the din it can be really challenging to pay attention to your gut…unless its asking for a slice of white clam pizza.  I always hear that voice.

We are always on the lookout for inspiration and innovation to help us stay bona fide.  This past month, we were so excited to have found Daisical Industries, a well of creative, energetic inspiratto on East Cesar Chavez. Comprised of four distinct businesses, this wearable art collective is what the shopping and salon experience should be…. accessible, affordable, authentic, unique, thoughtful, and sincere.

The name “daisical” is an invention of Daisical Industries stylist Charlotte Belle, who felt the key to unlocking her personal success was to reject the disengaged, too-cool-for-school attitude common to many salons and boutiques.  To be daisical is to be thoughtful, considerate, conscientious without taking one’s self so darn seriously.  And so the high-octane creation machine was born, and after only a few weeks in business, and several fantastic events under their belts, their funward momentum just keeps picking up!

We were invited there for  the bridal shower of our longtime friend, Betty Stall, and the hospitality of the ladies that run this awesome shop was inspired, unusually spirited and definitely bona fide.

We sipped spiked punch, prosecco and enjoyed a gorgeous spread of nibbly things while getting manicures, trying on wigs and makeup, and digging through the racks of great (and affordable) vintage.   We laughed for hours, as each transformation walked out of the dressing room.  It was such an innovative approach to event planning and an unbridled celebration of our inner showgirl—we might even have to have Wig Month as a send up to the power of the wig to inspire the best time EVER.

So hats off to the ladies of Daisical Industries for being part of the Keepin It Real Movement!  We salute you!

Go check ‘em out at 2109 East Cesar Chavez…and tell Esther Bangs and Coco Coquette we sent you for a lil’ family discount!
