François-René de Chateaubriand
After two years of wanting to attend Unique LA, I finally made it!
Walking through the 13th floor of the California Market Center was overwhelming at first. There was a sea of booths of brilliant lifestyle brands. As an indie business owner, their clean designs and displays really inspired me.
For a gal that loves chocolate and anything that’s considered a sweet, it was heaven. Vendors were handing me free samples left and right.
The photos above show off a few of the booths I visited and all the goodies I picked up. The bottom photo - I met one of the founders of Pocket Square Clothing (on the right, Rodolfo Ramirez)! I really admire the work he’s done.
If you’re free tomorrow (May 12), the spring show will be there for one more day! It’s only $10 and a portion of the proceeds benefits DWC. Plus, you get free drinks and a photo booth photo.Check out the Unique USA for more info on future events.
April 30, 2013 - Last Night in Vegas.
Last night my wife and I went to see Mystere and it was awesome. I couldn’t believe how many people were wearing t-shirts, baseball caps and shorts, though. Come on, people! You are going out to a show, dress up a bit! I’m not saying wear a suit, but at least tuck in your shirt. And leave the shorts in your room.
The folks over at T.M.Lewin sent me this charcoal 100% wool suit. It is a nice slim fit and doesn’t break the bank! I am also wearing a tie from the dudes over at Pocket Square Co., they have some great and affordable ties and bow ties… and pocket squares (duh).
