Singing Luna on the Rise

I had the pleasure of interviewing professional Singer, from Santa Barbara California the amazing Luna. Enjoy! When & why did you first start singing? I started singing in church.

I’m pretty sure that she was giving everybody else there. I […]

Best Store of the Summer!

My current favorite retail store is Old Navy. The great quality of the clothing and the way they set up the store draws me into the environment.

The huge windows they have attracts me because I can see all the front section of the store from the outside. While standing outside I can see the […]

Fashion & Politics

It is visually obvious that fashion is inspired by politics. For example, when you stand up or support a cause, getting a shirt or some sort of memorabilia to represent it, is a must. You want everyone to see who you support. The people that don’t know what you are representing, will ask and this is a great way to recruit more believers. We see it all the time with all the recent protest going on, everyone that displays their believes on their body through clothing get taken as a serious believer. It takes a lot of courage to visually […]
