I got this fantastic orange turban from Robyn at shemakeshats.etsy.com where she sells finished hats and patterns of all kinds. I’ve been on a mad hunt for the perfect turban, and when I saw this one, I knew I had to have it. Turbans have had small moments en vogue over the past few seasons, but I think they will be making a huge comeback this fall. I decided to get mine now so I can be ahead of the curve. Also, I enjoy a good fashion challenge, so making a traditionally fall accessory work with springwear sounded like fun.
Shannon founded JustFab's social media department and now serves as its manager. Her interest in fashion and social media began while earning her degree from OTIS College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, where she was surrounded by the more eccentric members of the fashion elite. Using social media to broadcast and connect with other creative types soon became her forte, causing Shannon to land jobs in social media, which led her to JustFab. When she’s not rubbing elbows with artists and hobnobbing in the tech scene, you can find Shannon with her passport in hand, jet-setting around the world in search of the next undiscovered fashion trend.
It’s that strange time of year in Los Angeles when one day it feels like the dead of summer and the next day it’s windy and raining. This is the month-long period we call ‘spring.’ How ‘spring’ works in LA is like this: the last week of April is amazing and beautiful, and the next two weeks of May are cloudy off and on. Then the last two weeks of May are picturesque. FABshionistas all over the city break out their best sundresses and hats to parade around the boardwalk and Farmers’ Markets.
I love scarves; like I have a near obsessive Carrie Bradshaw-status love of scarves. Winter, spring, summer, fall; around my neck or wrapped on my head… I have a scarf for that. So when I saw scarves hanging on our ‘potential flash sale items’ rack, I freaked out! “Rose, when are we getting these?” I asked our associate buyer with the breathless assault of a child on her way to Disneyland. “This month? Next month? When? When? When?” “Umm, at the end of March,” Rose replied looking up from her computer and blinking in surprise. I had obviously broken some serious focus. “Awesome!” I responded. “I am so saving my credits!”
