News // Shopping with alba Boutique & YouTube

shopping with alba

I can’t believe I am writing these words (for all the times I thought I would never do it!), but we are officially LIVE with our first video on YouTube (check out our short video below or right here)! And there is no better way than to start by sharing one of my favorite events to have hosted this year with alba Boutique! If you were able to attend the event, you know it was raining and the unusual weather was bookended by sunnier days. But that did not stop many of you who came out and enjoyed some bubbly and snacks while getting your hair braided and enjoying the company of the women and men who stopped by to support This Season’s Gold and alba Boutique in Hoboken! Thank you!

What I love about shopping small boutiques are the attention to detail that is in involved in catering to the customer. I know that when I go into alba Boutique, I am met with a kind smile and an array of choices for whatever I may be looking for, whether that be a dress, leather jacket, sunglasses, handbag, jumpsuit or jeans! You’d be surprised how much such a small space can offer! I not only found this gorgeous peach jumpsuit here a few weeks ago, but then within 5 minutes of walking in saw this beautiful white off the shoulder top, perfect for the summer bbq’s, (similar here and love this one too) and had to wear it during the event!

What made this event even more special is that my hairstylist and friend, Catt Nunez (follow her on Instagram!), hosted a braid bar and it was such a hit! What girl doesn’t love a fierce braid to wear for a summer weekend?

Jeanna, the owner of alba Boutique, is such an amazing women. Her hard work and dedication makes her such an inspiration and is the truest form of a #girlboss! Her boutiques are in Ridgewood and Hoboken, NJ and now in Wellesley, MA – so you know she knows what she is doing. Learn how we met in our video below!

    Oh that sounds like such a fun event! What is better than having a shopping date with girl friends, enjoying snacks and bubbly and getting hair braided? I love the peach jumpsuit you got, the white off the shoulder top and from what I see Alba boutique has such an amazing collection. Congrats to Jeanna for having her multiple boutique locations and to you for your new YT channel. You both are such inspiring girl bosses!

    Congrats on your first YouTube video! That is so exciting! I have been debating on starting a channel, but I am definitely leaning more towards doing it. The event at alba Boutique looked like so much fun! I love the coin necklace and mermaid tee! I also love that they had a braiding bar, it was out of the box and fun!

    Congratulations on your video, it’s fantastic! I love small boutiques and I actually prefer shopping at places like this rather than department stores. They usually have unique pieces that you don’t find everywhere and they have a charm to them. Love the selection at this place, I can see myself shopping here.. haha

    Aww congrats on this! That’s so awesome. I love small boutiques because you can always find something you wouldn’t expect to find. It’s my favorite place to shop at over chain stores. Love that they had a braid bar and it sounds like a super fun event. If I’m ever in the area I’ll have to check it out.

    Congrats on your first video, looks really good and you look beautiful. I could never do a video as I don’t like how I sound and my accent is terrible :) I love the braids now I wish I didn’t cut my hair short. Beautiful summer tank by the way and love all the sunnies they have! Looks like you had a great time at the event !

    What a fun store and cool event. Wish I lived there to attend. The store looks amazing and has so many cute pieces. Love that fun summer tank you picked and that statement necklace is to die for. The braid bar is such a cute idea too and what a way to kick off summer. It looks like you had such a wonderful turnout and love the video! xoxo, Christine

    This summer shopping soiree event looked so fun and there are so many great pieces and things. I love the charm for braids, it is such a simple yet fun way to dress up the hair game. You looked adorable in the video and it is very nicely edited and done.
