Summer's almost here!! No. Really. Despite whatever craziness is happening with the weather, warm sunshine really is making a comeback, and along with it - summer dresses and all good things! Which, in city life, also means the return of food trucks! But what if you could eat a Korean-fusion truck taco while SHOPPING on a truck?? Too good to be true? Or just the brainchild of a visionary? Lucky for us, it's the latter. Emily Benson is owner & operator of The Fashion Truck, a Boston-based mobile boutique filled with unique apparel & accessories. Emily is dedicated to individual attention for customers and designers alike, so she fills her truck with both local and national labels, and personally greets each face that comes through the door. And she's committed to making her fashion affordable, so you can walk out the door with new earrings, necklace, handbag, dress and coat, for under $200! What more could a street style savvy ask for? On today's show, Emily talks shop about her truck shop, some of the unique challenges and rewards of running a small mobile business, some of the Boston area labels she loves, and future plans to (ohyesplease!) bring The Fashion Truck to other cities. Plus, tons of great new music on the show! We've got tracks from supergroup Diamond Rugs, Brooklyn's own Boom Chick, Allo Darlin', Here We Go Magic, and more! So grab your smartphone and warm up that Twitter finger… truck season is back in fashion!
This week was all about fashion and love - what better combination? So I bring you a new designer this week, that you're sure to fall head over heels for! Leah Reena Goren is a driven young designer who is currently finishing her degree in illustration. While wrapping up her senior thesis, Leah is also doing painted textile prints which she sells through her well-curated Etsy shop. She's also creating an Apartment Therapy-style blog called The Future Present that she and boyfriend Dylan write, as well as some exciting new client work that's so hush-hush, we won't be able to find out her secrets until later this year! Phew! This girl is BUSY, but take a look at her prints and you'll see why! They're whimsical, flirty, and feminine… perfect for romance any time of the year. On today's show, Leah will talk about growing up with an artist mom, her creative process and inspirations, and a few recent spring wardrobe purchases that she's super excited about! Plus, updates on NYFW, and a playlist crammed full of great new music from Frankie Rose, Islands, Damien Jurado, Bowerbirds and more. There's just too many treats on today's show! Wait a minute… never mind. There's no such thing. Enjoy!
