I’m really loving what is happening in fashion these days. Prints, florals and color are popping up in every direction. I never saw myself as a print girl in the past, but I have been taking more fashion risks lately in an attempt to find new outfit combinations that work for me. This DIY was inspired by my new found obsession with wearing mixed florals and have found that wearing color and unexpected prints really brightens up my mood! How can I have a bad day when ther is party going on in my wardrobe!? In this post, I will show you how you can update a pair of shorts with a stamped floral print so you can chime in on this trend.

Giving Back to Community
Fostering community and using the show as a vehicle to bring awareness to great local community groups is very important to us. UNIQUE partners with a non-profit for every show and donates 10% of ticket sales to the organization. So far we’ve donated close to $30,000! This show’s partner is the fantastic literacy organization 826LA! In the past we’ve partnered with Ed Begley Jr.’s’ GreenWish (which raises awareness and funds for nine local environmental groups including Friends of Los Angeles River, Surfrider Foundation and Algalita), Heal the Bay, Architecture for Humanity, 826LA, and Create Now. Thanks for helping to make this all happen!
Heading down 3rd st towards the Beverly Center you can find a strip of interesting eateries, when you arrive at the end of the strip, diagonal to the Beverly Center, you will find “3rd Street Station.” This is one of the most unique pubs we have seen in a while.
“3rd Street Station is a pub and brasserie which pays homage to this unique train station culture by blending Western European flavors with gastro pub, small plate cuisine, headed by renowned Chef Greg DeMichiel. 3rd Street Station also offers an array of excellent imported Euro draft beer, impressive wine selection, outstanding brewed espresso drinks & coffee, and a full-service cocktail bar.”-3rd St Station
We are always excited to meet the forward thinkers, like owner Dion Rottman, who take their time to authenticate the experience of their overall vision. From an interactive digital terminal station menu on the wall, to their uniquely named station drinks, benched seating, and their hand picked playlist(which included Prince!), we could not not help but repeat how“cool” this place really was. Every element in some way is a dedication to the beautiful train station cafés in France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and UK. Photos speak 1000 words.
We thank Dion for adding a bit of Pop to his new establishment, we felt right at home…
