We’re excited to announce a new feature of Greer’s OC TV: fun 20-question interviews with locals in Orange County. First up is Alexis Bellino from the “Real Housewives of Orange County.” She was nice enough to open her home to us in between filming Season 6 (debuts early 2011) to answer our 20 questions. She’s a wife, mother of three young children, and a designer of two new dress collections (Alexis Couture and Alexis Casual). “The lines were created for the “everyday woman, any age, any body type,” Alexis says. “My goal is for every woman to feel girly, sexy and gorgeous!”
What did she reveal in our 20 Questions? A lot. She’s looking forward to traveling just about anywhere now that her children are older, she knows how to make the perfect margarita, and she’s dreaming about relaxing at The Montage in Laguna Beach.
Closing Time at Patina
Sadly, one of our favorite indie boutiques, Patina in Costa Mesa, is closing after eight years of giving us an incredible selection of carefully—and stylishly—edited clothes and accessories.
Owner Jenny Johnson is so grateful for her loyal customers and fashionistas who have made Patina thrive in its funky Eastside Costa Mesa location. She will be celebrating its closing with markdowns from clothes, vintage items and accessories, furniture and display pieces. Everything will need to find a new loving owner.
Each week select items will be marked down lower and additional items will be put on sale. Until the doors officially close, new merchandise will be arriving. “And of course, please come in to exchange hugs, laughs, memories and fashion,” Johnson said. “This is a time to celebrate our customers and all the fun we’ve shared at Patina Boutique.”
Open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. 178 Wells Place in Costa Mesa. 949.548.1930.
