Tailgate Pretty >> Dooney & Bourke Team Spirit Fan Bags

UPDATE >> Take 20% OFF  All Fanatics Orders. No Minimum. Use code PLAYBOOK (thru 9.25.18)

Every year we discover a new “must have” product to demonstrate your team spirit. We proclaimed team ugly sweaters, team ponchos, and team sweater vests as the years' must haves pretty much every year since their release three years or so ago. Since, we have added Sports Team Ugly Sweater Dresses and even sports team ugly business jackets to our list our essential team spirit apparel. But this year Fanatics has out done itself by partnering with Dooney & Bourke to offer team fan bags. We are particularly obsessed since you can not only tailgate pretty with your Dooney & Bourke crossbody bag but can just as easily wear it day in and day out, shouting your fandom with quiet elegance.

 Coachella Fashion >> Vintage One-of a Kind Finds

From Coachella to Stagecoach to FYF and Gov Ball, music and art festivals are more popular than ever. While music may be the main focus of thesae festivals, one could argue that the festival fashion, and especially Coachella fashion, is the true showstopper! Here is our issue with so many of the Coachella outfits >> they are what we have begun to call wanna-be's. Rather than being authentic 70's and bohemian style outfits, they are fakes.  It is a little like home decorating.  All those tiles that are trying to look like wood or stone and simply are not, drive us completely crazy.  We always say don't choose a fake version of something if you can readily get the real thing. Same with clothes.  Why buy fake 70's clothes when you can buy real vintage one of a kind outfits. This is why we turned to Daryn Belinsky, of Little Light Vintage, for her take on this year's festival wear. Continue Reading →

Party Pretty in JoJo Fletcher's Bachelorette Looks

We have to fess up, we are huge fans of the the Bachelor & Bachelorette television series and cannot help ourselves but actually like one season better than the next.
