A trend that I am loving with retail stores is when they take their goods out on the road with them. Urban Outfitters had their pop-up shop. Warby Parker is spending weeks in different cities interacting with the locals and meeting their fans. Now, BHLDN is introducing their traveling trunk show to celebrate the third location of their newest store in California. They will hit up 6 Anthropologie stores on their travels (including Seattle!) and bringing with them their gowns for brides-to-be. BHLDN gowns are gorgeous, classic, and vintage, but a girl’s wedding day is going to be one of the most important days of her life so selecting one without trying it on can be a little nerve-wracking.
I read a lot of blogs every day. Usually though, it’s just the same 20 blogs because that’s all the time I have for them. When I come across a new blog though, it kind of sucks you in! I find myself perusing through pages and pages and if it’s a great blog, I’ll go deep into the archives for it. I came across a blog today called Los Angeles I’m Yours and was instantly reminded of my bff Gelesia who currently resides there. I never have any idea where my readers are from except for Seattle – so LA readers if you’re out there, here’s a blog that you can check out with information on what’s going on in your neighborhood.
Today, Jay Leno confirmed the rumors that have been swirling for some time now – that he would be leaving the Tonight Show and that Jimmy Fallon would be coming in to fill those shoes. Spring 2014 is set for Leon’s departure after a 22-year run as host. Additionally, the Tonight Show will move back home to 30 Rock in New York leaving its Los Angeles home behind. Congratulations Jimmy! This is an incredible step for him in his career.
So…what will happen with ‘Late Night?’
Who: Selena Gomez
Wearing: Reem Acra
Where: Los Angeles premiere of Spring Breakers
Los Angeles brand Wildfox is hitting 2013 with the best lookbook I’ve seen yet. This model has got the Cher Horowitz look down to a point and it totally goes without saying, but I love their tribute to the 90′s classic! To view the entire lookbook, click here to view on Refinery 29.
I think I have found my next vacation!
Before I even watched 500 Days of Summer, I knew I was going to love the movie. It wasn’t because Zooey was the manic indie pixie dream girl I always aspired to be or the fact that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has the nicest looking face in the world. I’m really no different than the person next to me. I just love love, k? Is there something wrong with that? Not at all. So to put it simply, I knew I was going to like this movie because I was Joseph Gordon Levitt. I believe in “the right person” for everyone and when he questioned Zooey’s wishy-washy ways I was right there with him. Why couldn’t the girl make up her mind? Everyone has one of those in their lives…
500 Days of Summer will always be one of my favorite movies. If not for the story line, the cinematography or even the soundtrack. Another reason would have to just be the sights. That’s why when I stumbled upon a site today that highlighted every single location the film was shot at, I knew that this was the next step I needed to take.
The 500 Days of Summer tour (that I just turned into a tour) can be looked into further here.
Los Angeles readers! Do me a favor? Go to this, please. It may seem a little pointless for me to be posting this event when I am up north in Seattle, but hello – I’ve never actually had the opportunity to work with an artist who has had a burger named after them until now! To this day, I’m still a little bit shocked, but Mayer Hawthorne really is one of the coolest guys I have ever met. And now you can meet him too if you attend.
LA Weekly just published a new article yesterday entitled, “The 20 Worst Hipster Bands: The Complete List“
Uhhh more like the 20 BEST Hipster Bands. Geez. This is, after all, coming from Los Angeles and now based on this list, I’m kind of questioning their judgment and music scene overall.
In short, if you want to check out some great music, please follow this list. Anyone that calls the Black Keys awful is delusional.
Oh the joys of music festival season. One day…I will conquer all of them.
This isn’t a bad lineup, but it is very indie indeed.
Remember when I wrote a post back in January about a new Tumblr that was created showing Skrillex cooking things? Well, it seems like the DJ has taken the idea more literally than we thought because he opened up the Grillex Food Truck earlier this week.
“I figured, why not? Y’know? I’ve gotta try a new challenge right now,” Skrillex said. “Growing up, I cooked a lot at home … I mean, I spent a lot of time with a spatula and grill tongs, almost as much time as I did with decks and records. I’ve got a real passion for it, y’know what I mean? I think, like, 60% of these things fail in the first few months … might as well give it a shot.”
The truck will be near Echo Park in Los Angeles for the next few nights, but for a more complete schedule, Skrillex plans to update everyone on the Grillex Twitter account.
