Let me tell you, if you’re looking for colorful striped jeans…you’ve come to the right place! May I introduce the “Jordan Jean” by the British brand- Motel. This jean is uber-stylish to the core and the fit is fantastic! There’s plenty of stretch at the waist and thigh region, thanks to the Lycra, Polyester and Rayon blend. I love that there’s so many ways to wear this pant. I wore a funky vintage red top and kept to the red/black/white palette. This pant would kill it with the neon trend! Create your own funky take on the trend by adding neon pinks or yellows with the white/black stripes. The pants are now available in white/candy pink stripes! Be prepared to be complimented every time you wear this pant. Check out Motel today!
Another cool fashion event that I was in town for was the Connected Fashion Festival at The Well in downtown LA. Trendy Angelenos near-and-far migrated to The Well– a hip clothing store and salon hybrid one sunny afternoon for a day of shopping (for Coachella) in this mini block party. The event boasted several local designers and indie brands such as: 80s Purple, Penelope’s Vintage, Deandri, Dimepiece, Motel Rocks, Rojas, Blaque Market, The Cobrasnake, Drifter, Ksubi, Natalia + Benson, Niki the Unicorn, Y-R-U and others. There was also a Jarritos truck (complete with a masked Urban Luchador), a DJ and a line-up of bands.
The event wasn’t as big as I had hoped, but I was happy to have connected with local brands, casually shop and catch up with brands that I’ve known for a few years now, like Rojas. Designer Freddie Rojas offered fun new products such as chic bustier tops in vintage-inspired fabrics and trendy floral crowns. Blogger and vintage shop owner Chanelle Laurence had a booth set up full of vintage goodies. Her friend and fellow blogger- Jasmine of Glitter on the Ceiling was also there helping at the booth. Jasmine, if you are reading this, it was a pleasure meeting you!
The event was a huge success and I left feeling very inspired for when I am able to attend Coachella or another fun music festival. Check out ConnectedFest.com for additional information and to stay in the loop for future events.
