The summer road trip: Does it get more quintessential Americana than that? Maybe it's the thrill of exploring new places or the chance to bond with our travel buds, but once the warm weather hits, we always have a hankering to hit the open road, Sal Paradise-style.
Lily Ashwell seems to agree with this sentiment, creating a whimsical '13 collection inspired by the vintage staples she wore while road tripping. Whether you're planning a quick jaunt or a full-blown, cross-country trek, you're sure to find something breezy at the designer's trunk show this weekend. Enjoy gluten free, vegan treats courtesy of Bakeology as you peruse the flirty frocks, vintage overalls, and more. Oh, and did we mention the designer herself will be on-hand to provide some sartorial advice? With your wardrobe settled, all that's left to do is hop in the car and figure out where to set off to!
When: Saturday, April 27, noon to 2 p.m.
Where: Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic, 1013 Montana Avenue (near 10th Avenue); 310-394-1975.
