Do You Know What Your City is Doing Tonight?

You know that friend– we all have one– who knows all the trendiest and hippest things to do in your city?  Well it’s time for you to be that friend!  Thanks to some great new websites, you can now be 50 steps ahead of even your coolest friend and will impress everyone in your office come Monday morning when people ask you what you did over the weekend.

I suggest checking out these sites for great nightlife ideas, cultural events and just all around good times to be had!

Another way to stay up on things happening in your city is to grab a copy of your local newspaper. Local newspapers always have great ideas that are specific to your city. You should love wherey you live , and if you feel that your town is boring you aren’t digging deep enough!

My Trip to Melrose Trading Post

Last Sunday I went to the Melrose Trading Post, which is held at Fairfax High in Los Angeles, CA. No matter where you live, there is probably  a weekly or monthly flea market happening in your city or a city near you. I strongly encourage attending  for the following reasons:

\

1. Tons and tons of awesome furniture! You can find everything from newly- handcrafted pieces to antiques,  and everything in between. Also, most of the furniture is very fairly priced and sellers are always open to making “deals.”

2. Tons and tons of clothes! The best part about buying clothing from a flea market is the fact that most of the items are vintage which means that each piece is so  unique that you will rarely see anyone else wearing the same thing. Check out those fab furs, glamourous hats, leather shoes and copious amounts of jean shorts!

 

American Beauty: 4th of July Fashion

As the 4th of July quickly approaches, I’m sure  you are getting your celebratory plans in place. Whether you are headed to the beach or just BBQing at a friend’s house, I have come up with some festive fashion choices for Independence day! Luckily, because American flag print is super trendy right now it’s not difficult to find an outfit.  If you have the legs for them, I would start here with these Vintage American Jean Shorts.

Then if you can pull off stillettos, The Giuseppe Zanotti Design has a perfect blend of patriotism, sexy and chic.

Also, don’t worry about spending a bit more money on your ensemble as you can wear the pieces you buy after the 4th (major trend alert!)

1. USA Tank Top at Urban Outfitters, 2. Dockers Slim Chino in Red at Urban Outfitters,  3. American Flag Converse on eBay,  4. Sparkle & Fade American Flag Swing Tank Top at Urban Outfitters,  5. American Cutoff Short at Nasty Gal 6. Lita Platform Boot – American Flag at Nasty Gal

My boyfriend Spencer and I decided to go with a stars and stripes combo this last April at the Coachella Music Festival, and I can honestly say our outfits received too many  compliments! Be sure to send us your 4th of July Fashion pics!

Earth Friendly Father’s Day Gift Ideas

With Father’s day right around the corner I have taken it upon myself to do some research so that I could supply  you with some great gift ideas for your Dad as well as the Earth!

If you want to treat your Dad to a spa day, but he doesn’t have the time to go, bring the spa to him. Kiehl’s has great all natural products for men that will surely transport him to a peaceful place. Better yet, he can use them every day! A great beauty product is definitely the gift that keeps on giving.

If you  want to pamper your Dad even more, how about a luxurious robe made from an all natural, sustainable material? Check out this plush robe made out of bamboo. Look at the smile this guy has;  now that is how every Father should look on his day!

If your Dad is more into cool new gadgets, help him protect his iPhone and/or  iPad with a case made from sustainable materials!

Also a great place to shop for Dad is Etsy, where you can find great one of a kind, handmade pieces. If you end up getting Dad something from Etsy  I guarantee you that it will be unique. Check out these vintage lighter cufflinks. Buying vintage is a great way to recycle!

Whatever you end up getting for your Father, make sure to include a note letting him know how much he means to you! I know that my and my sister’s cards are always my Dad’s favorite part!

Fabulous at Any Age

Many of us fear getting older. I for one, thought that on my 23rd birthday my life was over…I‘m a bit dramatic. However, how are we suppose to embrace getting older when we live in a culture that places so much importance on staying youthful by any means necessary. When I flip through the pages of Vogue, it is hard for me, a twenty something, to relate to the 15 year old models. No woman is ever going to look the way she did when she was a teenager, and why should she want to? If I remember correctly,  my teen years were filled with braces and bad fashion choices. Sure, my body was as thin as a rail, but I feel more beautiful now than ever before.

My hope is that we as a society can change our  perception of age and aging. If you, men and women, are not embracing your wrinkles and learning to love those gray hairs then I would like you to meet the inspiring women featured on the marvelous blog, Advanced Style.  This blog has completely lifted my spirits and has gotten me excited about my own aging process. These women have maintained their individualism and sparkle over the years and I personally think they have never looked better!

Damn, girl! 90 year old Edith Drake is sporting a mini skirt and fishnets. Take notes girls, I see many a youngin’  try to wear this same look; however,  it usually lacks the conservative yet sexy and fun vibe that Ms. Drake wears so nicely.

It’s Official: Swimsuit Season is here!

Now that we have officially entered the summer months, many of us will be heading to the pool or beach to escape the heat and relax by the water. This also means that swimsuit season is here, and even though that means less clothing, it is not an excuse to forego fashion. Why not switch things up this summer and go with an old fashioned suit inspired by the 1920s or a totally groovy look inspired by the 1960s? Men’s fashion can be just as fun and diverse as women’s fashion. Just take a look at the 1920s inspired look from Emporio Armani’s Spring 2011 collection – now that’s what I want  my boyfriend to be wearing while we lounge amongst fabulous people.
