Able to stop ice cream trucks with a single lift of a pinky tow. Always colors in the lines, and only needs to look one way before crossing the street. It’s the new crop of youth-inspired art tees from Wellen. Ocean-driven designs that so sick, looking sweet is like taking candy from a baby (Swell does not advise taking candy from strangers- stranger danger). Check out the new slew of Wellen tees at Swell.

Now that we’ve captured your attention (with a scantily clad, yet sensibly dressed for the elements lady) we want to style you out with something that will shift some attention to you. This month Maxim caught on to two eye-catching up-and-coming brands: Ambission (Ambsn) and the Ryde. Both brands offer up some killer graphic tees that are far from the norm. According to Maxim’s cheesey center, “with the right stuff, you can make this summer an endless one.” Maxim said it, so it must be true.

Best Beach Cover-Ups, Exposed

June 11th, 2009 | By | 3,212 Comments

Some situations are made for flaunting it in your new animal print bikini, but others (say, when you’re diving head first into a California burrito with a side of beer) call for a little more creativity to stay cool while still looking hot. That’s where a breezy beach cover-up comes in. Although there’s no doubt you’d have an easier time flagging down the ice cream man sans-pants, you have to remember that not everyone can pull off the Pam Anderson slow run with as much class as the original. So keep it classy, keep it breezy, and keep your skin from getting fried from an entire day of soaking up the sun. Keep a cute cover-up handy and look chic on the commute to and from the sand. Our top three favorites this summer:

 

1. Lightweight, long maxi dresses that keep the sun off without sacrificing style.

L*Space: Burgers and Bikinis Charity Event

Hot buns and burgers too! What more could you ask for? 

Last Monday L*Space teamed up with the Crow Bar in Corona del Mar for a night of to-die-for burgers and even tastier bikinis. To add to the deathly combo, proceeds from the burger sales went to AmberWatch Foundation, an organization that is dedicated to the prevention of child abduction and molestation. The event left everyone with a belly-full of gourmet goodness, a glimpse at some super cute and unique L*Space bikinis, and a warm fuzzy feeling from doing it all for a good cause. What’s not to love about that?!

Check out some of the featured L*Space bikinis here!
