Summer Styling Pt.1

Although I've yet to vacation, be at a pool more than 1x (for more than hr) or really establish a base tan, the reality is, summer is here!  So if you're like me and haven't been living your best summer life, we can at least dress the part.  Here are a few of our fave summer pieces, and they're just waiting to be yours!!

@Yelp

Yelp's Galaxy Geekout Event is this week, so this Extra Report is a recap of some of our favorite Yelp events💫💫💫 Each year Yelp hosts an over the top event, and you know we love it. Last year was A Night At The Factory, Warhol-ed out, and ASOME got to... Judge some amazing costumes: Take all the photobooth pics: And Patrick got so many donations for the food bank!!! Next up is Will The Good! We partnered with Yelp and Goodwill of Des Moines to throw a party for a cause at the AC Hotel in downtown Des Moines:    And last but not least, Slay The Vote. Same drill as ^ except this time we had our local youth group registering...

Fight Club

The first rule of fight club is you have to dress the part. The second rule of fight club is you have to dress the part. The third rule of fight club is you have to find someone who will actually do a shoot like this with you. The fourth rule of fight club is you have to find a place that will actually let you do a shoot like this.  And of course, you have to train.

Creative Chaos

Does your life feel chaotic sometimes? Hi, same 🙋! ! ! That’s why May’s Extra Report theme is all about calming the chaos.

Gucci, Versace, Neimans, Oh My!

Hopefully, you’re not totally sick of reading about/hearing about/seeing things on sustainability, because we’ve got some more for you! This month we’ve talked a lot about how we can all make more sustainable purchases, and a lot of that focused on buying things that have already been loved (ie buying second-hand). You know that is our favorite way to shop at ASOME, but the reality is, we don’t all, always, purchase second-hand. But another reality is that we want sustainable options when we do buy new, and the market is hearing that loud and clear, see ⬇ Fast Fashion ✔Zara: 90% of their stores are eco-friendly & have clothing donation sites; they use renewable resources to power their offices; their...
