Wow, I cannot believe that the weekend came and went so fast! This year the NBA All-Star game took place here in the City of Angels, and it was incredible. I wish I could have been in numerous places at once, because literally there were events every way you turned. I started out the week with 47 Brand and Shoe Palace, one of my favorite stores on Melrose. Thursday, was jam packed from seeing the new line from Michell and Ness and Homage on Fairfax, to ending the night at Adidas.
Friday, before the rising stars challenge, I had the chance to speak at the NBA Lab x Crossover event, as well as kick It at the fun 747 adidas event. It felt like a music meets kicks festival, where new drops were happening as well as the amazing create and cultivate event. The night ended at a Jordan event where I got to see some custom kicks made! Saturday finally slowed down a bit, but before All-Star Saturday kickoff, I had the chance to interview the talented Kristen Ledlow. I cannot wait for you guys to see the fun footage. All-Star Saturday was full of fun fashion, and of course some amazing dunks. Sunday couldn’t have been more fun kicking off the game day with Mitchell and Ness and their brunch. By the time the game rolled around, my weekend could not have been more complete. Of course it was all about the fashion, and some of my favorite looks are below!

What do you get for the sports lover out there? Whether it is a male or a female, I have listed some of my favorite sports gifts that will cover anyone on your list. From the fashionista to the tailgating king, there is something here for everyone. One of my favorite things is supporting up and coming lines. Rastaclat x NBALAB is celebrating the virtues of pride, righteousness, integrity, discovery, and excellence. Rastaclat honors the legacy of professional basketball with the launch of the Rastaclat X NBALAB COLLECTION. The NBA Lab is a research and development incubator aimed at innovative design, imaginative concepts and strategic partnerships. Both The Very Warm and Rastclat are able to partner with the NBA because of this amazing concept.
You know it is that time of the year that we are shop shop shopping for gifts for each of our favorite people out there. What I love about this season is really finding different items for each of the individuals in our lives. If you are like me, you love to be fun and fashionable at sports events that you are either attending or even throwing in your own home. Most women are now sports fans, so why not seek out some different gear then they would normally expect!
Right now, I am all about mixing up a cool vintage tee, like this one from UNK X Topshop to give to any cool girl on the block. You can definitely wear it with a simple pair of jeans, or make it super fun and funky for your fashionable friends. I paired it with a hat, ripped denim, and on trend white booties. Also, vinyl pants are huge right now, so you can even find a fun varsity jacket on sale for a friend in team colors, that then can make fashionable or played down. I love the fun feel above with the white booties. Again, a fanny pack makes for a great gift for anyone fashionable or sporty.
