The STITCH: Women’s Stance Socks

Once you go Stance you NEVER go back!

Have you ever tried on a pair of Stance socks? If your answer is no, you better get some on your feet!

Stance is a company that puts its focus on producing unique and quality socks. The company initially concentrated on men’s socks and last holiday season they launched their women’s line. With the current sock trend, they didn’t go unnoticed. Their offering directly relates to popular trends in fashion.  For example, their socks come in a variety of prints, textures, and thicknesses. Stance also makes their socks in different lengths such as no shows, crew, and boot. Whatever your style may be, Stance has a sock for you! I guarantee that you won’t want to take them off! You can find women’s Stance socks at Active Ride Shop in Burbank, Santa Monica, Chino Hills, Thousand Oaks, Long Beach, El Segundo, Rancho Cucamonga, Corona, Temecula, and Brea.

active-irvine

In honor of Style Week OC, our good friends at TOMS hosted a Style Your Sole event at our Irvine Spectrum store a few weeks ago. Their creative team brought out their best artists to decorate and style our shopper’s “souls.” There was a DJ on hand, a photo booth, not to mention TOMS cupcakes! The night was filled with fun, friends, and music!  A great way to spend a Friday night.  Check out some of the photos below.  More photos to come from the event, and our Photobooth!

The STITCH: Billabong Ladies Shop Night

Last Thursday, the girls over at Billabong invited us to their annual shop night where we had the chance to preview their upcoming Fall/Winter collections, snack on tasty treats, and hang out with the rad women of Billabong.

These were some of my personal favorites, and can be seen in Billabong’s “Designers Closet” collection. Versatile party dresses, trendy coats, and of course a surf/skate feel that is true to Billabong’s roots, are very apparent in their collections for Fall and Holiday.

Here are some of my personal favorites from Billabong's "Designers Closet"

The STITCH: Summer Sunnies!

As spring comes to an end and we enter into summer (the greatest season of the year, if you ask me!), we start to focus on one of my personal favorite accessories; sunglasses. This year the sunnie trends are big and with music festivals and outdoor activities in full swing you can be sure that you will see a lot of these great spectacles. This season Active Ride Shop has all of your favorite sunnie trends with a selection from brands like Sabre, Ray Ban, Ashbury, Electric, and Spy, to name a few. Here are two styles that I’m totally loving this season:

The Cat-Eye
This lens is a great way to show your feminine side and is reminiscent of the 60’s when women sported these with pencil skirts and red lips. The SABRE Love Doll is the perfect pair if you’re looking for a good cat-eye.  Plus, it comes in black and tortoise, so you can have a pair to go with every outfit!

The Sabre "Lovedoll" is already a member in my sunglass collection!

The Wayfarer
The wayfarer style is as classic as it get’s.  Ray Ban has offered this iconic frame since the 50’s and it hasn’t lost it’s appeal yet.  It the perfect style and looks great on everybody! Available in black gloss and tortoise – it doesn’t get much more classic than that!!  And, so many other brands are getting on the trend that you can find even more styles and colors from brands like SABRE, ACTIVE, Ashbury, and Oakley.

The STITCH: Ladies in Mammoth!

Last weekend the Active crew headed up to Mammoth Mountain for a little adventure. Although it’s technically a trip for the guys, this year the ladies decided we’d have a presence as well. It was an awesome 3 days full of laughing, snowboarding, great company, and the first annual Savage Games!

We all piled into a tour bus and made the treck up to the mountains.  About half way up back luck struck and our bus broke down! A few minor repairs and we were on our way.

We made it to Mammoth at about 8:00pm on Sunday night. Oakley set up a rad poker game at Lakanukie bar, a great spot in town. We then headed over to Hyde bar to watch The Fling, thanks to Ezekiel, jam the night away with great tunes!!

The next day was the Savage Games tournament (thanks to Matix and Beer Savage!) where we broke up into teams and battled it out in everything from beer bongs to eating pies as quick as we could.

The Witchy Women team killed it, we were the only girl team and faced the competition full force in our punk rock get ups!

The STITCH: Spring Break in Phoenix

For Spring Break I decided to pack my bags and take a road trip down to Phoenix, AZ to show some love and support for our boys on the Active AM team at Phx AM. After a long 6 hour drive, I was greeted by 95 degree weather and beautiful skies. AZ showed me a good time and I’ll definitely be back.
