Welcome to LA Wild Style via Joyrich

Mademoiselle Yulia the Jack of All Trades 

If you can’t get enough of the bright shocking and pop culture styles of Joyrich  then you should make your way across the street to Wild Style,  located at  7703 Melrose Ave. The opening of the consisted of a massive amount of loyal Joyrich fans including your celebrity guests such as Chris Brown, Japanese singer AI, and designer Onch checking out the stores merchandise.  My “highlight of the night” moment was meeting the designer, singer, and dj herself Mademoiselle Yulia who influenced me to dye my hair earlier this year. And WOW her style is terribly too cool. Not only did she dj her set during the party but she also performed her single “Gimmie Gimmie” that left the crowd wanting more.

The question now is why would Joyrich open up another store? Well Wild Style is there to serve up striking clothing with a mash of high-end designer such as Vivienne Westwoood and Gerlan Jeans to name a few. Since Joyrich only carries their in-house brands, Wild Style is meant for those who love all things related such as more Jeremy Scott.

I definitely loved and enjoyed the night! Thank you and much love to the Joyrich and Wild Style team.

INVADING LAZR TRADESHOW

Well my lovely folks, here is a recap of what went down at this weeks LAZR tradeshow. For those of you who do not know what a tradeshow is or have not attend one, it is an organized exhibition of many vendors of brands showcasing their new collections for retail buyers to purchase for a store. It goes much more in depth but that is it’s basic purpose. Usually buyers are the main attendees but for the past few years media such as press and trend forecasters have been populating these events.

Luckily Two Point Oh LA, the blog association I am part of was invited to check out what was going to be in for Spring 2013. At the end of the day I got the chance to shoot Melissa and Marla with some cool items courtesy of the Los Angeles Fashion Council.

Attending these tradeshows are always fun for me because I get the insider on what brands are producing and sometimes what buyers put in their store.

Some of my favorite booths had to be Tommy Hilfiger, TUK Footwear, and Matiko.

Here are some visuals so open up your eye balls.

I need those plaid ones 😉

Shoes from TUK I love them so!

Irregular Choice came out from New York City. Too bad they only had sample sizes. I’m a size 9 1/2

Weekend Wander

This weekend I did absolutely no shopping. I decided I wanted to shift my activities by enjoying the people who surround me this summer. Living in Los Angeles has so many things to do during this summer, that it’s just hard to choose at times.

Saturday was a good day spent with my mom. I took her to KCRW’s annual Summer Nights in Chinatown because I do love me some red bean cakes and also checked out one of my favorite DJ’s Anthony Valadez. The best part of a free event is that it attracts various personalities and I love to people watch ( I really do). It allows me to sit, observe a persons behavior and fashion (with no judgement).

On a side note, I am trying to gain some photography skills. As you see its a bit amateur-ish but hopefully I’ll improve along the way. If you have any advice or comments feel welcome to let me know!

The next Summer Nights event is August 11th. So be there!

Clicks N’ Snaps

I went to high school in Downtown LA so you know I’m pretty familiar with the area. Little Tokyo is one place I know whats up when it comes down to eating quality Japanese food and unique shopping spots. Taking my Burbank pal Aaron out for a photo mission I ended up looking for empty places in the art district. Yet for some reason I think the area has turned into a “hipster” hang out because of Urth Cafe and that sausage place I can’t properly say. But it was productive day.
