Hamptons Play w/ Prints & Patterns
   Summer is the perfect time to elevate bold color choices and really bring your wardrobe to life by mixing in prints and patterns combinations. Luckily, this isn’t as daunting as it sounds as we have a reliable list of options thanks to the help of the brands from The Concept Collective at Prince of Scots. Below are two ways to easily add the trend into your summer looks:
Add a Pop to Solids

    Want to add a little extra to your look without going wild? Pick an accessory with a fun print or a great pattern to add to your basics. 
  Cobra Society, a luxury accessories brand that honors the traditional construction methods and handcrafted moroccan artistry in every design, makes trying the trend simple. With a collection of stand-out shoes (like the loafers shown above) and ultra-unique handbags, this one brand offers multiple options to inject a dose of pattern and print into any ensemble.

Make it the Focus


If you are someone that isn’t afraid of being bold, then make the print and pattern the focal point of your look. 
    Yumi Kim is definitely our go to designer of the summer collection from The Concept Collective when we want to immerse ourselves in the trend.  We love how the brand uses vintage silhouettes with florals to create the ultimate feminine collection of every girls dream.

Kicky’s Kitchen is bringing a little nice and a lot of naughty to RSPOP
     Enjoy double the fun of cupcakes and booze at the Kicky’s Kitchen Pop-Up Shop coming to RSPOP for the month of July. The cupcake start-up brand is taking cake and cupcakes to the next level making them a bit more fun for everyone. With caketails inspired by your favorite cocktail, Kicky’s can create and deliver year-round signature caketails, as well as seasonal or holiday cupcakes. The extra fun is not just for the adults, Kicky’s Kitchen is also offering cupcake kits for the little ones to get creative with.
      Just over a year old, Kicky’s Kitchen launched in April 2013 with the concept of the cake and cupcake kit. Founder Christie MacKinnon, inspired by her mom’s baking talent, wanted everyone to experience the satisfaction of enjoying an edible masterpiece and feeding it to loved ones. With instant traction of her followers, Kicky’s Kitchen was invited to be one of the food vendors for the NFL’s Official Super Bowl Tailgate party, and so was born the Caketail. “The double naughtiness of cupcakes and booze is killing two birds with one stone” says Christie.
Get the scoop from Christie from her Fox and Friends segment:


     From Caketails to Caketail Taster Shots, themed tastes of summer to the Cupcake Kits for the kids, guests can dig into a variety of mouthwatering sweets. See the official Kicky’s Kitchen Pop-Up Caketail Menu below, featuring Kicky’s Kitchen caketail partnership creation with Sam Adams as part of the Brewing the American Dream Program:
