Moving and Shaking!

Wow is it already summer time? I cannot believe that this month has flown by, and we are already in the middle of the NBA playoffs. How is everyone else getting along. I have so much to share with everyone, and am so excited for the next few months!

Last week, I was able to visit one of my favorite families, The Rastaclat crew. Their office if full of life, and their owner has created a line of unique bracelets that empower everyone. Not only that, they have a great line made specifically for the NBA.

I also stopped by the Fairplay offices last week to interview their brand ambassador for a fun interview. Their summer line is killer, and I will be joining them at agenda for some more on camera filming.

Shop LCD

Not only that, I had the chance to interview the owner Geraldine Chung of Shop LCD. Her on-line store was her start, and now the brick and mortar locations on Abbot Kinney and downtown Los Angeles are carrying lines you will not find anywhere else. I picked up this tee from Parks and Mini, and cannot seem to stop wearing it.

Last, lets talk about the NBA and the playmakers group. I am so excited to announce that I got a chance to film two different YouTube episodes with them last week, and it was a blast. Stay tuned for Jump Start and Run that Back. We are talking hoops and some of the best plays of all time.

Stay tuned for summer time, so much more fun filming is coming your way!

Mother’s Day with Fanatics!

I cannot believe that Mother’s Day is just a week away, and whether your sports minded Mom is classic or on trend, Fanatics has you covered. I have long been a fan of giving something different and thoughtful on this day. When I first started thinking of my own Mom, who is classic and loves a good handbag, my first thought was to check out the Dooney and Bourke collection. I mean, who doesn’t love this line? Mix in your favorite team, and you are totally set.

I am a huge Steelers fan, just like my entire family, and this is the perfect bag for my Mom and Aunt.

Yep, and then there are those on trend Mom’s, like my sister and most of my best-friends. Right now I am loving layered necklaces, and what is not fun about mixing in your favorite team’s nameplate. I love this Lakers  piece, as it is very on trend for Los Angeles, and simply mixed with a few others, it is fun and hip at the same time.

Make sure you head over to Fanatics for all of your favorite Mom’s out there, and year around, for all kinds of amazing gifts for everyone!

The NBA Playoffs are Here!

Anyone else as excited as me, that the NBA playoffs are here? One of the things that I love about this time of year, is that there is so much fun fan gear, and it can be worn in so many different ways. I came across this Golden State Warriors Jacket available at Fanatics and was instantly in love! They have several teams in this cool snap front vintage style from Starter.

The back of this jacket is just as cool as the front, and to be honest, if I were going to any music festival I would go sporty and wear this. There is something about a simple denim short and tee to make it more stylish and fun.

Not to mention braids are so back in style, and if you want to be super on point, throw some in and take this look up a notch.

Jordan's kicks

We all know that I am going to pair my looks with some cool kicks, and these Jordan’s are my favorite right now. The cool zip makes them even cooler, and they also come in black!

NBA FITS

How is it possible that the regular NBA season is already coming to an end? As soon as All-Star came to an end, it literally feels like a blink of the eye and “boom”, playoffs are here! Not only did the East and West end in a crazy fight for some of the last spots, but I think there are going to be some surprises in the playoffs. Meaning both the games and the style. As you know, I have had the pleasure to interview both NBA players and broadcasters on their fashion, and this season we have seen more cool “fits” then ever before. For me, the playoffs bring out even more fun fashion, and I will be keeping you all up on it for sure. In the meantime, check out some of my favorite fashions from this season, from some of the guys that are leading the trends.

I have so much going on with work, and I cannot wait to share it all with you. NBA-All Star was a blast. I had so much fun at the Mitchell and Ness event chatting with Gary Payton. He has always been one of my favorites, since the Seattle Sonic days, and getting to catch up with him was amazing. Not only that, we were able to create all kinds of fun videos that are now up on my new YouTube channel. Form an exclusive interview with Kristen Ledlow, to talking throwback fashion with the Homage team, it was certainly a fun couple of days. If you are looking for some fun pieces, check out my favorites from both Homage and Mitchell and Ness.
