Last Sunday's Blowout Sale was a Whole Lotta Luxe Fun! put on a fantastic blowout sale event this past sunday, full of great deals just in time for the holiday shopping season! local vendors came out to present their goods to eager crowds of stylish ladies and gents.

the sale of all sales took place at the old Paul Mitchel school in Costa Mesa.

michael costello, from project runway season 8, made an appearance from 10am-12pm to snap photos, show his latest creations, and chat with the event-goers.

there were giveaways, fab deals, tasty bites from gourmet food trucks, Seabirds and Piaggio on Wheels, and great music.
the event a super luxe, electric vibe

please enjoy the photos and short comments on this great event below!

getting ready for the excited boutiquing-ers lining up outside!

gems, gems, gems, as far as the eye could see!

you can tell these people are stellar designers by their gorgeous wares, intriguing displays, and super cute outfits!

Adorne, one of a kind vintage jewelry re-design. eye-catching, provocative adornments!

goodie bags all clustered up, ready to be received by the lucky first 50 entrants!

Briana Rene, custom jewelry design, had exquisite pieces in fun displays made out of old packing crates, briefcases, suitcases, etc. the designs were diverse, exciting, and innovative!

some one-on-one michael costello time.

he was feistier than i remembered him to be on the show! i may have deserved that slap...

see you at the next event!!

Deal Gooder deal: $99 Brazilian Gloss ™ hair treatment from Desa Salon!

Deal Gooder does it again with a stellar deal you can't miss!!
$99 gets you a Brazilian Gloss™ hair treatment from Rex Paxton, Desa Salon! this is a $300 value!

(image: deal gooder logo)

i've done my research into this treatment, trying to find out if it's everything i hear it is. after a couple friends offered it rave reviews, i started looking into treatment prices. the best i found was $50 off the standard $300 procedure.

and true to form, Deal Gooder puts 50% of profits towards a charity! today's charity is HomeAid Orange County!
