Wardrobe Slated To Open February 6

Costa Mesa, CA –Wardrobe Ltd., luxury fashion consignment company, will be opening its first shop at The OC Mix, an urban marketplace filled with over 25 owner-operated retail shops, gourmet food and drinks, all under one roof.   Slated to open on February 6, Wardrobe Ltd. will focus on women's and men's premier designer label clothing, shoes, and accessories. 

Previously only conducting online and private consignment nationwide since 2008, Wardrobe Ltd. owner, Austin Deppa, a Seattle native and fashion expert, chose The OC Mix as the location for the company’s first brick and mortar boutique due to the loyal Orange County customers that have been shopping with him for years.

“I am really excited to open my first boutique in Orange County. It will be a great place for clients to drop off their latest items and shop,” says owner Austin Deppa. “My goal is to really focus on quality, timeless designer clothing, shoes and accessories for those who appreciate fashion.”

With Wardrobe Ltd. primarily specializing in premiere designer labels such as Azzedine Alaïa, Chanel, Hermès, and Louis Vuitton, this will be the first store at The OC Mix featuring high-end clothing and accessories. At about 200 square feet, Wardrobe Ltd. will be more like a personal curated closet than a retail store.  The modern space, highlighted by classic accents, will only feature about 100 pieces at a time.


Birdie Slated To Open Early February  

Costa Mesa, CA -  Quickly becoming a hot spot for unique eats in Orange County, The OC Mix, an urban marketplace filled with over 25 owner-operated retail shops, gourmet food and drinks, all under one roof, is proud to announce that Birdie Bowl and Juicery, fresh cold pressed juice and amazing acai bowls, is slated to open in early February. 

"Birdie Bowl and Juicery is a nourishing addition to the unique beverage bars and foods we have here at The OC Mix,” says Anais Tangie, Director of Events and Marketing Coordinator. “Their cold pressed blends are deliciously refreshing. We just can't wait for Jee Shin to open and add to our culinary collective at SoCo Collection."

Birdie Bowl and Juicery, the latest from owner Jee Shin, focuses on 1OO% cold pressed organic juices, nut mylks, and acai bowls. The company delivers live, raw and unpasteurized juices using a hydraulic press to extract the nutrients from only the freshest locally grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Did you know that traditional juicing involves a high level of friction in the grinding process which in turn causes heat? In contrast, Birdie uses a cold pressed juicing method which significantly slows down the rate of oxidation of its extractions.  As a result Birdie juices maintain their nutritional stability for a longer shelf life. With proper refrigeration they are nutritionally stable and will taste crisp for a good 72 hours after being pressed.

As a new addition to the community, Birdie strives to bring something better, something more nourishing to the table. With each and every product the company mindfully carries and offers, Birdie will always promote healthy balanced lifestyles.  Aside from the amazingly delicious taste, Birdie juices and nut mylks are loaded with enzymes, vitamins, trace minerals and other vital elements your body needs and deserves.  Birdie is a perfect place to meet friends or hydrate before a Zen yoga session.

As someone, somewhere once said, “can I get a birdie of what you’re drinking?”

Continues To Invest in The Artisanal Environment With More Shops 

Costa Mesa, CA – Entering a new phase in its evolution, The OC Mart Mix, the shopping destination that redefined the retail experience in Orange County, is changing its name to The OC Mix to better reflect this urban marketplace filled with over 25 small retail shops, gourmet food and drinks, all under one roof. The OC Mix will live up to its moniker “fashion, food & findings” and will continue to nurture small businesses and owner-operated shops, while advancing in the artisanal environment found in the building located in the heart of South Coast Collection (SoCo). 
“The idea is to eliminate confusion among consumers that the “mart” is a place that is accessible to the trade only,” says Bryon Ward of Burnham Ward, owners of SoCo where The OC Mix is located.  “The OC Mix is very much a retail community that is accessible to all.”
Constantly evolving to give trend spotters the eclectic mix the center is popular for, The OC Mix will welcome three new retailers: Seventh Tea Bar, the latest creation from Portola Coffee Lab, just opened on January 2; Birdie Bowl & Juicery will open on February 1; and Wardrobe Ltd. will open in late January.  Recently opened shops and restaurants include Lollipop Nail Studio, Theorem by Portola Coffee Lab, and Shuck Oyster Bar, while several Mix retailers have expanded in the last month such as, Local Fare, Apples & Oranges, and Smocking Birds. 

With a modern, shop-from-your-neighbor feel and the opportunity to touch, taste, feel, see, and hear from its retailers, The OC Mix is Orange County’s answer to the Ferry Building in San Francisco or Chelsea Market in New York City but with a So Cal contemporary-chic aesthetic highlighted by cement floors, reclaimed wood, and exposed ceilings. Many of the shops are under 250 square feet, giving rise to the power of the small business owner and the ability to present products and services in a fresh new way, only found at The OC Mix.  

From eco-friendly merchandise and services to products that give back to charity, The OC Mix shoppers can also find many items made by local Orange County artisans and companies, emerging fashion designers for men, women and children, fine jewelry and accessories, unique home furnishings, stylish tableware, and inspiring artwork. The OC Mix is also quickly becoming a hot spot for epicurean adventures with the ability to get spices, oysters, cheese, sauces, coffee, tea, juice, olive oil, wine and more at the various gourmet shops and restaurants in The OC Mix.
