Brief History of Breton Stripes||Brentwood Lane Blog

by the sea...

Warm weather is here and what better way to enjoy that than running around in a striped top and capris? Often taken for granted, let's look closer at the Breton Striped shirt and where it came from.

10 Item Wardrobe Pt. 2 (Phase 1)

Pt. 2 is finally here!
It has begun! I've completed my clothing clean-out. This is where the hard part comes in, actually figuring out what I want my capsule wardrobe to be. I have my inspirations. Now I need to find items that fit this new wardrobe.

After the purge, I pulled out my favorite pieces that I currently own.
It's funny how you don't realize what you have until you get rid of things. Turns out I have more clothing that fits my new aesthetic than I thought.

10 Item Wardrobe- Pt 1


simplicity is best...

Lately this seems to be my catch phrase. Where clothing is concerned, I can't think of a better policy. Most of us have been in the same boat, having a closet full of clothes and yet we're still saying that tired phrase, "I have nothing to wear."

JUNE'S Go To Items

Welcome to the first post of the "Go To" series!
Every month it seems that there are items we gravitate toward- like the shoes you throw on with every outfit and the lipstick that's constantly in your bag. Last month these four things were my go to items!

INSTAGRAM DISCOVERY- Five Star Soda

When it comes to soda packaging, the aluminum can and plastic bottle are what we have become accustomed to. The glass bottle, however, is best for handcrafted soda, without plastic or aluminum to jeopardize the integrity of the flavor. The right amount of fizz and unique label graphics makes bottled soda not just a novelty, but a timeless classic.

Over at Five Star Soda, each soda is rated using a five star scale, complete with notes on flavor, aroma and overall taste. These well-written reviews include soda pop classics and handcrafted originals. Discovering new sodas to enjoy and reading the creatively written reviews makes Five Star Soda my favorite Instagram discovery so far!
 
Find out what they're about here and enjoy perusing their website!

Stay thirsty my friends!
Sincerely, Vera

REVIEW SF Vintage Shops- Pretty Penny & Haight Ashbury

I'd like to start off this post by saying that I am not a San Francisco native and I've only been to the Bay Area twice. But while I was there in March, these were the two places that stood out to me as great places to find vintage at affordable prices. I'm sure there are many more!
