Venice on a Snow Day

March 4, 2014

While you were all slashing pow in February, I snuck down to Los Angeles. WERK! Is how I can sum up the trip. My previous post explains that I was on a buying trip for the shop, gathering up Spring Break goodies and super fun summer accessories and dresses. However, let me introduce Ashley and Emily, my travel companions. Ashley and Emily are embarking on an exciting entrepreneurial fashion journey. This summer, watch out for Fashion Truck Canada as it travels from Toronto across Canada. Fashion Truck Canada is a new concept for Canada. YES! It is a store on wheels and it could be parking and setting up near you! Im super super excited for these girls, this is going to be great! And after spending 5 (mostly hilarious) days with them in jungle of LA, I am not only inspired but their entrepreneurial spirit, convinced they are destined for massive success.

Our first night in LA we headed to Venice Beach for a photoshoot – of course we did! I got to flex my new photography skills and the girls got some promo shots for the new biz. Even on a pow day, everyone can enjoy some beach shots, right! – these are my favourite shots…

Follow them on this journey as they get ready to launch! And keep an eye out in the next Chatelaine Mag for them 🙂

Last exciting thing to report from sunny Los Angeles, Lollipop Sprouts! What happens when you breed kale and brussel sprouts? You get Lollipop sprouts, fried in butter and you are a believer! Leave it to California! Thanks Ash and Em for introducing me and the great dinner at Laurel Hardware on Santa Monica Blvd.
