I don’t think anyone is as excited for spring as I am! There are so many things to look forward to… spring break, sunshine, music festivals, road trips, etc. With Spring and all of its perks comes new trends in fashion- colors, prints, fabrics, etc. Pastels such as mint and coral are going to be the go to colors of the season. Prints such as camo, florals, and stripes are going to be HOT. Fabrics that are light weight for example, knits, chiffon, and lace are going to be easy to wear during the transition between winter and spring. NOW is the time to shop for all of your favorite spring trends. You can find them at an Active location near you!

The STITCH: Paid Dues 2012

Last Saturday I got to groove to new and legendary hip hop beats at the Paid Dues Festival at the NOS center in good ol’ San Bernardino.  The 88 degree weather didn’t stop me from watching Wu-Tang’s early 4 o’clock set. Even though I was uncomfortably sweaty, it was awesome to hear the rest of the Wu-Tang clan pay tribute to the late ODB as they played his hit “Shimmy Shimmy Ya”. Wu-Tang had everyone in the crowd jumping and throwing up the WU sign to hits like “Bring Da Ruckas” and “C.R.E.A.M”. I was hyped!


I also had the pleasure of seeing Boom Camp Clik, Hieroglyphics, Living Legends, Odd Future, and Dipset perform. Living Legends had the best performance hands down. I threw up the “L” as they performed their hits “Never Falling Down” and “She Wants Me.”

I’ve heard stories about Odd Future shows and the craziness that happens, but I was not prepared for what I experienced. Colorful balloons decorated the stage as members of OF grilled hamburgers while performing. Mosh pits were created, people crowd surfed, and drinks were being thrown everywhere. It got a little too intense – I had to watch from the back!

As soon as OF finished their last song, I rushed to the front of the stage to watch Dipset perform. I was most excited about this performance but it ended up being the most disappointing. Although I was hyped that all four members (Cam’ron, Freekey Zekey, Jim Jones, and Juelz Santana) showed up, I could barely hear Cam’s voice.  I was so disappointed! But, they did play my favorites “Dipset Anthem” and “Bout It, Bout It.”. Plus, it was pretty rad seeing OF bouncing in the front with the rest of the fans!

In between sets I visited the Active Booth where Luke was chillin’. He was having a good time too!


All in all it was an amazing night of hip hop! If you missed this year’s Paid Dues festival, here are some videos of the shows I saw! Can’t wait ’til next year!!

The STITCH: New POSSO x Volcom Collection

The second collaboration from Volcom and POSSO is finally here! Volcom ambassadors, POSSO, are 2 best friends from Northern California with a love for art, design, fashion, and music. In their newest collection with Volcom, the inspiration comes from the interpretation of a dream vacation that we would love to go on, with a modern 90’s twist.  All of the pieces have a carefree feel to them which makes it easy to dress them up for a night on the town, or throw them over your bikini for a day at the beach. There are fun maxi detailed dresses, floral prints, tops with back detail, cut out pants, and midriff cuts to add that extra bit of edginess to your outfit. My favorite piece is the Posso Maxi Dress. This dress has a front button detail that allows you to where it open or closed. It’s the perfect piece to highlight your bikini, or to button up and wear with a great pair of wedges. This entire collection is AMAZING, and will be available at select Active stores in early March.  As Posso would say, “Enjoy the moment! Make plans and stick by them, keep your phone in the car and let your eyes do the googling.”

Check out the POSSO x VOLCOM collection landing this March at Active Long Beach and Active Riverside!

The STITCH: Fall Trends – It’s Jacket Season!

We are officially approaching Fall weather and we’re all on the hunt for those great season jackets! Obey has some great women’s pieces this season that you will have in your closet forever, and will be your go-to jacket once that cool weather starts coming in. My personal favorite is the brown leather Outsider Jacket, this guy is stylish and does the trick to keep you warm! The Outsider Jacket was my best friend a couple weekends back when I visited the chilly Bay Area at San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music Festival. You can find these jackets from Obey, and more, at any Active Ride Shop location.

The STITCH: Fall Trends – 4 Ways to Wear a Dress


Now that Fall has arrived, it’s time to begin shopping and dressing for the cool weather ahead. This has always been a weird transition for me. I get so comfortable wearing jean shorts, tanks and summer dresses, that I’m never ready to admit summer’s over by bundling up in an oversized sweater with boots. So, instead of going full force into the Fall season, I like to ease my way into it by pairing summer items with fall items. Here’s 4 ways to wear a summer dress from Active in the fall season!

*All product featured is available at any Active location!

Will the tie dye trend ever die out? Not this season, check out Actives new product the Wanderer Dress and Woodstock Tank to add a tie dyed inspired piece to your wardrobe.



Spring Fashion 2009, Hello!

I am so ready for spring fashion! Don’t get me wrong, I love winter with the coats, and scarves, and boots, and dresses with tights.  But, come March, I am ready to start to shed some layers!  There is so much to look forward to in fashion this spring-color, prints, tie-dye, washed cotton, dresses, cute tops.  Every magazine and fashion website I look at, they all showcase such great collections for spring 2009. In the stores we have already started to see some new product trickle in, starting a couple of weeks ago with Ezekiel, and this last week with Insight (and that’s just the beginning!).  I stopped by our Irvine store to ask the ladies working what they thought; check out the photos of the girls wearing some of their favorite pieces. One of my favorites so far is a top by Insight, the Cookin’ Class Tank.  A great fitting cotton tank with a whimsical print on the front, and a bold geometric print on the back-pair it with cute shorts and great shoes, and you’re good to go!  I can’t wait!  Error loading Flickr gallery
