The original plan was for our JJ team to work alongside the KidAround crew in putting on a big event for Friday May 1st at/with the Roseville Galleria (Westfield): “Mom’s Night Out” benefitting the charity Bright Pink (#VIPINKweekend).
Westfield connected us with 3 retailers to do our fashion vignettes for Friday – GAP, Athleta and Francesca’s, and we started gathering our models and puling thier looks… THEN, the we got a call Wednesday asking if we could bump it up a notch for VIPink and do a TV segment on Saturday morning, and the Saturday afternoon event as well.
BRING IT ON!
Lucky for us, our JJ Crew is used to cranking it into high gear and making awesome happen. Here’s a look at some of the fun-filled whirlwind weekend.
It was PACKED. We got to talk to so many awesome women about embracing
the body they have and creating a confident wardrobe. Happy place.
So fun to have live models in this setup – lots of referrals to the
shops we styled from. And our ladies looked GOOD.
Westfield went all out to make the weekend of events vibrant and bright (#brightpink).
Pretty sure we all wanted to take this awesome light-up tree and couch home with us.
It wouldn’t be 3 events in under 24 hours without a wardrobe change, now would it?

Overall, it was a whirlwind of a good time, with great food, wine, fashion, friends and fun!
Looking forward to more events with Westfield in the future.

Here at Juniper James, we’ve been on hiatus since the arrival of my little one in July, and the last few months have been wonderful. My husband and I have had our hands full finding our rhythm as a family, and connecting with our daughter. I am choosing to continue to stay at home as a mom, and in that, was open to new partnerships that would enable me to continue making a difference, use my skills and work with great people. I am proud to say, we have found just that:
My main undertaking is conceptualizing and styling Kidaround’s covers, starting with their March/April issue, shooting early January, and I am beyond excited to be collaborating again with our favorite photographer, Sarah Hawkins of SHockins Photography for this first issue.
I have been invited to not just be their stylist, but also a part of the Kidaround Team, speaking into the vision for each edition, styling Kidaround to bring each issue to life in a way that helps inspire and move families forward, as well as helping to translate that over to Kidaround’s digital and social channels.
Most importantly, Kidaround has a heart that strives for what we strive for here at Juniper James – content and stories that make a difference: They are also giving us the opportunity to periodically feature the makeover of someone special, inspiring and deserving (child fighting a terminal illness, special needs children, homeless mother, etc.).
Amidst this exciting new endeavor, we will continue to offer our individual and editorial styling services. Contact us to book your appointments starting in February!
Stay tuned – our team is looking forward to enriching the lives of families
in Sacramento with Kidaround, and making a little magic in this next year!
