The STITCH: Active throws a party for the Ladies!

“Oh yes it’s LADIE’S night, and the feelings right!”

Last Saturday, Active Ride Shop threw an awesome party for the ladies.  All 21 stores hosted a special shopping night for our women’s customers, and at Chino we did it big this year!  It was a special night full of sugar, sparkling cider, discounts, and more! We danced the night away to a DJ, and handed out giveaways like hot-cakes. We even had talented artists come down and paint TOMS for the customers. And did I mention that all women’s clothing was 25% off?!  All in all, it was a successful night, full of fun and shopping!

Check our Flickr page for more photos from Ladies Night’s at all of our stores!

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

picture-1

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!

The STITCH: Trash for Cash!

I cleaned out my closet the other night and, by the end of it, I had a huge trash bag of unwanted clothes.  Instead of tossing them in the trash, I decided to head down to Buffalo Exchange in downtown Fullerton.  Buffalo Exchange is a consignment store that buys and sells used clothes, accessories and shoes.  So, your “trash” can simply become someone else’s “treasure.”  After class, I hauled my old clothes over there and hoped for a couple of bucks.  I ended up walking away with $66 dollars!  I found some cute feather clips and a vintage looking tee and now I’m off to go shop at Active with the rest of the moolah (scroll down to see the new Fall items I just picked up at Active!)!

Next time you’re thinking about throwing away some of your old clothes, think again!  Take a trip down to Buffalo Exchange – I promise it’ll be worth it.

The STITCH: Turquoise Treasures

the collection

My jewelry has become a part of my life, and a way I express myself everyday. My accessories have become collectables, and I now have a bundle of turquoise treasures. It is a hobby of mine to look for these jems, and find these diamonds in the rough. Everywhere I travel to I am on the hunt for everything from turquoise, to coral, to onyx, and above all antique silver. Flea markets, local antique shops, Morro Bay, and San Francisco are some of my favorite places to look. The thing I love about my jewelry is that it not only expresses my style, but is great to pair with my everyday clothing. Putting together tops and bottoms that I find in Active Ride Shop, from my favorite brands like: Insight, Matix Women, RVCA, and Obey add that extra flare that makes any girl feel unique and fun!! Hope this inspires you to create your own collection of keepsake pieces that will be with you for years to come.
