Fashion Finds for the 4th (2013)
I like these stylish Skinny Jeans for Women. Just enough flair for the 4th of July with even more Chic Hipness to be the Understated Style Queen at the Party. They are Frankie B Jeans-Stars and Stripes/Skinny and available here at Revolveclothing.com Probably one of the best sites for Great Stylish Clothes for Independence Day!
And this Shirt is one of my Fav’s for this year’s Independence Day. It’s a Wildfox Couture American Beach Party shirt. Also available on-line at Revolveclothing.com.
Or if you are really last-minute, I know Old Navy does a yearly Tee that won’t break the bank. Get there quick, they are usually just $5 so they do sell fast. Typically they are white with red and blue. This year they are even better than usual in a nice dark Blue! Here’s a nice ladies T available now at Oldnavy.com for even less than $5 for Just $3.97!!!!
I’m going to the beach on the 4th of July wearing my favorite camo Volcom shorts, my blue, Red & White All-Star 2011 T-Shirt and my Jordan Cements 3’s. What will you be wearing this Long Independence Day Weekend?
I took 2 Computer classes over the weekend from 9A-4P on Saturday and Sunday. During the break from Day One’s class I had the opportunity to hit the streetz of the University of Hawaii-Manoa Campus. Here’ what I saw as art, Interesting or both.

The Free Store
This Free Store is located in the Art Building. It’s basically a free thrift shop. Drop Something off or pick something up. The day I was there, it had a dusty carpet, 2 Books, an old car stereo and what looked like a pretty nice flannel shirt. I suspect I’ll come back sometime and donate a few things to give it a bit of an upgrade. I’m on a big time mission to declutter my home and office. The concept of the free store is a good one, it just seems a bit run down and I did step on a bit of glass-yikes!
The Broken Emergency Phone
On the TV news, I’ve heard of a few break ins and a bit of crazy things happening at U.H over the last couple of years, so when I saw the Emergency phone was broken, I figured it needed a picture taken of it. Mainly because I know UH has put a lot of effort into increasing security and this didn’t quite match their efforts. I also took a pic of it because it looks a bit artistic with the Pink Pastel and the Flo-Yellow in front of the green background. It almost looked like it belonged over in the Art Area near the Free Store.
Emergency Overted with the Security Escort Service
So, all is well with the safety efforts. This sign was just 10 feet away from the funky phone. And there were two PAY PHONES next to it. Pay Phones? I haven’t seen a pay phone in years. I’m sure the Pay phones were put there, near the Sign and also in place of the broken emergency phone.
4th of July Tie Dye
This is my favorite find. Something Different, interesting, new and innovative all in one sign. What Fun! Tie Dyeing Just in time for the 4th of July. And it says Shirts are free, Kinda of wish I had a real student I.D. Sure hope they have Blue and Red Dye!
The P/Parking Machine
Ooops! I totally forgot to take a picture of this. I’ll get it on July 11 during my next computer class. Actually it’s more of a funny story and you can imagine the picture of the Parking machine. I was walking back to class and bumped into a guy who said “I sure hope I don’t get towed, I couldn’t figure out where to pay for parking” I was like “Uh, you pay at the green Parking machine” So I walked the man over to the machine and it has a HUGE P on it, the man said to me “See, that’s a P for Phone, it’s not a parking machine, it’s a phone.” Too Funny!
And since I’m a shoe guy
I couldn’t resist taking a picture of the shoes made by the art students. They were all quite well done and nicely detailed.
On the Streetz in less than 20 minutes at University of Hawaii’s Manoa Campus. Who knew a few minutes of wandering could bring so much fun to the World. (All pictures taken by me with my iPhone4-s, Didn’t trick them out, you can see those at STREETZPIX on Instagram)
Party Rock was a Song that came in number ONE as the song of the Summer a couple of years ago. This year we have another Unanimous Song of the Summer for 2013. Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky”. This vid has all the lyrics, It’s a good way to learn the words before your next Bar-B-Que, Bar Hop or Beach Blast.
