St. Petersburg's 500 Block was a brim with vintage motorcycles, hot rods, Volkswagen buses, and even an old Morris Minor. At 7 p.m., Sake Bomb's third annual Scorpio Vintage Rides and Art Show block party was still jamming eight hours after it started. Pinup girls bopped through the crowd sporting coiffed victory rolls, cat-lined eyes, form-fitting threads and high stilettos.

Not long after grabbing a sake martini and a beer from the bar, I was startled by the sound of a motorcycle engine revving nearby. It sounded so close, it had to be indoors. When I turned around, I could see Sake Bomb owner Tai "Swank" Truong straddled across a soon-to-be-raffled yellow Honda cx500 Cafe Racer. He revved the engine again, and owner Tom Truong popped up holding the box of raffle tickets. The crowd roared.

For the third annual Scorpio Bike and Pinup show, Sake Bomb raffled off a motorcycle. Seen here is winner Jeff Fox.

One lucky winner would be driving the bike home. After the first ticket picked failed to produce a winner, two minutes were put on the clock before another ticket was drawn. Again, no one stepped forward and another two minutes went on the clock. The air was electric, as Swank continued revving the engine and the crowd teetered between excited and angry. Finally, the third time was the charm, with motorcycle raffle winner Jeff Fox making his way to his new ride, climbing aboard and revving the engine once again. Everyone clapped and cheered, getting over the sting knowing they would not be claiming this prize.

But I was there on another mission.

CL on the Road: New York Fashion Week 2013, Junk Food Vintage curated by Kristen Cavalari

Posted By and on Tue, Sep 24, 2013 at 11:11 PM

You know those super cute vintage-inspired tees you can purchase at places like Squaresville? That's Junk Food Vintage, and this time they decided to team up with the NFL and Kristen Cavalari to put out a NFL-inspired collection.

The show was set up unlike every other fashion show we had been to. There were four quarters that each represented different "teams" and they even had a "referee" and two-person drum line at "half-time." It was nice to see designers have fun with their presentations instead of the usual unsmiling, vacant models that populate the runway. It was also a nice was to represent the clothes, which were overall fun, trendy and universally appealing, no matter what team you were rooting for.

CL on the Road: New York Fashion Week 2013, Philippa Galasso SS14

Posted By and on Sat, Sep 21, 2013 at 11:19 AM

The minute the first model stepped onto the runway, I was hooked. Already there were numerous textures and fabrics creating a feminine peplum waist dress. Philippa Galasso's SS14 collection was filled with flirty pink and cream cocktail dresses with detailed necklines, and almost every piece was designed with a sheer piece on the top or bottom (probably the biggest trend for spring next year). When the designer decided to use black, it was in sparkles and flowey skirts, keeping them whimsical and delicate.

CL on the Road: New York Fashion Week Fall 2013, Sally Lapointe SS14

Posted By and on Wed, Sep 11, 2013 at 12:16 PM

Unlike other designers this season, Sally LaPointe seems to have skipped the pastel trend by using darker earth tones paired with bright yellows. Her fabrics were patterned in an almost watercolor fashion with flowing skirts and sheer sleeves, and when she decided to use structure, she did it extremely well with flattering sheath dresses and long vests. Models wore pin straight hair and minimal makeup, definitely letting the clothes speak for themselves. You can see more of this beautiful collection here:
