The Stitch: Women’s Spring 2013 Trends

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!

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: 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!!
