    0 comments / Posted by April Marin

    You’ve probably heard about NYC’s Shakespeare in the Park – it’s one of the most anticipated city events in the Summer. To give you a bit of history, Shakespeare in the Park is created by Joseph Papp in the 1960s. The Public Theatre’s show gives viewers free productions based on the works of William Shakespeare.

    This season offers Twelfth Night and is being played from July 17th to August 19th 2018. This production is directed by Oskar Eustis and Kwame Kwei-Armah. Performances are usually from Tuesday to Sunday, starting at 8pm. The show is in Delacorte Theater in Central Park, and there are available instructions on Google on how to score free tickets to the show, and we’ve linked one here

    The best part of this annual program is that whatever the weather is, they do not cancel scheduled shows – however the crowd is not allowed to bring umbrellas, so make sure to get the comfiest ponchos – designs are available on our website!

  • What to wear for a BBQ

    0 comments / Posted by April Marin

    Aren’t outdoor parties one of the best part of ending spring and welcoming summer? ‘Tis the season for sumptuous and fun grilling and you might have received a lot of invites from friends, colleagues and relatives, so it’s best to be ready with your stylish yet comfortable outfit.

    Make sure to consider your comfort when choosing your outfit as it will help you enjoy the event more. Your footwear should be stylish as well, however, the location will determine what the appropriate footwear will be.

    Here are some tips on what to wear for different types of BBQ party:

    Business BBQ

    If your office colleagues are setting up an annual cookout, it’s best to select office-friendly hues such as blue, black and whites. The simpler, the better. Pull off a plain top and a white pair of pants and finish it off with a fab necklace, and you’re ready to party! We love this West Hampton Sweater Poncho in Black – it is a casual sweater but it looks stylish when worn with white pants and vintage beads.


    House BBQ

    Go for clothes which are made of cotton especially if the day is hot, to help your skin breathe while enjoying the BBQ party. Colorful sundresses are the best bet to House BBQs as they look cool and comfortable, especially when paired with sandals or sneakers. Keep in mind that it is a BBQ party so you might be sitting on low chairs, which will make your skirt go up – make sure your legs are covered in nice length and you’re good to go.

    Beach BBQ

    This has got to be everyone’s favorite, as it involves the beach! You have a lot of choices when it comes to what to wear to a Beach BBQ party, it depends on the activities you will be prepared to do when out and about in the midday sun. Maxi dresses are great if you want to go swimming because you can easily wear your swimsuit underneath them. If there will be no swimming involved, you can go for a Denim pair of shorts, a white tank top worn with April Marin’s Montauk Tassel Scarf – this gives you the best beach-chic vibe especially if you go for the aqua one!
