Andy Keogh, R.I.P.

Andrew Allen Keogh passed away Monday morning, December 27th, due to complications of testicular cancer. He was 39 years old. He passed away peacefully, in his sleep, at home, close to his family and loved ones. Andrew is survived by his sister, Jenny, his brother Matthew, and his son Tyler. 

Andy, as he was known to his friends, was known and loved by many, and his untimely exit is a great loss to us all. He was a familiar face to the tattoo crowd, working the early years of American Graffiti, in its hipster heydays. Andy Keogh was a singer, playing frontman in THE UPSETS, a local late punk-rock favorite of the mid-to-late '90's. Perhaps his oddest yet most memorable public connection is his decade long stint working the HABA department at the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op, where he achieved near celebrity status for his exemplary customer service and memorable punk-infused fashion sense.

Andy Keogh was known all around town, in a variety of social circles. He was friendly, easily liked and loved by many. An original mind possessing a sensitive soul, Andy was an artist, musician, and performer, as well as a proud father to his son Tyler. Andy had the touching ability to relate to almost anybody and a conversation with Keogh had him giving the speaker his undivided attention.  His distinctive dress, plentiful tattoos and and sincerity made Andy stand out in a crowd. He offered up his unique self to the world in his unforgettable take-it-or-leave it style. He will be sorely missed.

There will be a private funeral service to be held for family members and a memorial is being planned for his friends and family to gather and celebrate his life in accordance to his last wishes.

Heart Clothing Boutique

Heart Clothing Boutique specializes in fresh contemporary clothing that doesn't break the bank.

Bold details pack a big punch in this tiny boutique
Heart Clothing Boutique is located at 1903 Capitol Avenue, in Midtown's Handle District.

Heart Clothing Boutique opened its doors on a Second Saturday, October 9, 2010. Located at 19th & Capitol, Heart is nestled in Midtown's Handle District. It's a tiny place that packs a big punch. From the bright red wall, distinctive glossy white deer head, and mix of bold black & white wallpapers, the decor somehow conveys a grandness without overpowering Heart's small space.  There's a surprisingly copious amount of women's clothing, shoes & accessories packed into this petite boutique.

“Heart is truly a labor of love. Everything's been done with careful consideration for my customer as well as their pocket books,” says Vanessa Lopez, Heart's warm and friendly proprietress.  “It’s a place where any woman can come in, find a piece that suits them, and leave feeling special.”

Although this is her first venture, Vanessa has been working retail for over 10 years. Most of Lopez's time was spent as the store manager at Ikon, a local boutique re-known for savvy street fashions and great customer service, and that is where, she says, she got her "hands on experience and contacts" which has helped her create Heart Clothing Boutique.

 "What makes Heart different," explains Lopez,  "is the variety of affordable trendy items you can find here on a daily basis. While there is a variety of shops, there wasn't enough cost effective options for new clothing that wasn't Forever 21. Heart offers fresh, contemporary clothing that won't break the bank."  Lopez says she spends hours "researching and finding the best items at the best value." Heart carries many recognizable labels: BB Dakota, Lush, Tulle, Arynk, and Keds. When asked what her current favorite items in the store were, she laughed and thought a moment, "The shoes. Especially the leopard print booties that just came in."

Heart Clothing Boutique is offering a 15% discount for all Street Style Sacramento and the Citizen Rosebud readers. Mention "Rosebud" at the register and get 15% off your next purchase.

Heart Clothing Boutique is also offering a $15 Heart gift card to one lucky local reader! Be sure to follow Street Style SACRAMENTO, and leave a comment below. The lucky winner will be selected at random & announced December 20th.

Street Feet: Holiday Sparkle

Hot pink leggings/ knee-hi socks w/ Nordic folk motif/ gold lame boots = HOLIDAY SPARKLE
The feet you've seen already, and the same charming Folkloric socks. HOWEVER, when paired with shiny not-so-lame, lame' cowboy boots, and hot pink legging you are sure to be put in the holiday spirit. I don't even care WHICH holiday.

Sweater of the 70's.

I have seen Jessica walk the streets of Sacramento before. Like a crane, she moves with grace and her clothes drape  her like a bird wears it feathers.
What caught my eye as quick as a hawk was that gorgeous sweater. It wasn't purchased from Free People, Anthropologie, or even a local boutique. This was handed down from her mama many years ago.
If this was replicated today, the quality would be hard to beat. This sweater has been around for decades and was in perfect shape!
Her jewelry was purchased in Costa Rica and a handful of jewelry shops in the valley.
Her amazing soft, well worn in leather messenger bag was found thrifting. 
She is so beautiful .  I hope to see her again.
