In Jeanious - Beija-Flor Trunk Show at Certain Things 


You and the hapless sales girl make quite a sight.  All those heaps, all that denim.... and all of it that 'didn't quite work. '  You blame the jeans.  She blames your genes.  Stop this madness!


A Beija-Flor Denim Trunk Show will be at Certain Things in Cameron Village Friday, October 5th Beija-Flor trunk show from 10am to 6pm to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month.


A Miracle Jean: What is Beija-Flor you ask?  It's a premium denim jean manufactured in Brazil... with the reputation of being the most comfortable jean ever made!  Some refer to them as the 'miracle jean'.  They make you look 10 pounds thinner, if you need it.  It gives you a little more booty if needed, or gives you a little less booty if needed.  How can it do something for everyone?  That's why it's a miracle jean!  Targeting the "modern woman," whether she's 22 or 52, the jeans are designed for women who want stylish, premium jeans with a great fit.  Come to this Trunk Show and find out for yourself and you too will become a believer!


The event will feature Beija-Flor's entire denim collection, including their Melissa Pink jean, which 25% of Beja-Flor Jeans sales go to the Cancer Research Foundation.  Kathy Moca, co-owner and designer, will be in attendance for the event and as a Breast Cancer survivor for almost 21 years, is proud to introduce the Melissa Pink jean exclusively at this trunk show.


The entire Beija-Flor Jeans fall and winter collection will be available at Certain Things, including Oprah's "Fashion Fix" Nicole jean.  Be sure to come out on Friday to meet Beija-Flor's designer, Kathy Moça, as she reveals the hottest denim trends this season.  Stop by to find your perfect pair of jeans!


Certain Things: Hours - Mon-Sat from 10am- 6pm, and Sunday from 1-5pm.   Like us on Facebook   404 Daniels St., Raleigh, 27607, Phone: 919-828-5055,

Their diverse selection is easily searchable by style so you can't choose a wine that is outside of your comfort zone. Furthermore, all of the products they carry go through a rigorous quality review so you can rest assured that everything they carry is a balanced and well-made wine.  Location: 18 Glenwood Avenue, Raleigh; Contact: (919) 374-0036, Website

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of  The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
