Vacation Necessities

Vacation Necessities

January 17, 2017

"Vacations all I ever wanted! Vacation had to get away!" Our exact thoughts,  who couldn’t use a tropical vacation right about now? It’s the time of the year when everyone packs their bags for resort getaways to shy away from the Winter Blues. We totally get it! When it comes to packing and bringing the necessities DASH has you covered.

We’ve created our top 6 Vacation MUSTS; you won’t want to miss this.

Swim
 Bikinis are SO last year, kidding, but really. We absolutely adore one-pieces this season, especially for resort. They are so trendy and also completely compliment your body from all angles. We’re loving the solid color one pieces with some added detail, this makes for a versatile onesie and keeps all eyes on you instead of the suit.

Swim

 

Hat

Sun hats are still a thing, don’t worry. This is one of those pieces that is often forgotten but you’ll be happy we reminded you. The perfect accessory that just makes your overall swim/beachy look a 10/10. Plus keeping the sun out of your face and off your head is a total plus!

 

Hat

 

 

Backpack

You can never have too many beach bags or backpacks for that matter! If you’re heading to the pool, beach, or for a hike you’ll definitely want something to carry all your necessities in. Backpacks are amazing because they are so much easier to carry and you can usually fit more goodies inside.

Backpack

 

Book
 

Most of the time we’re music people when it comes to hanging by the pool but honestly picking up a good read while lounging… doesn’t get much better than that. Take time to get yourself a great book and choose reading over anything! You’ll be much more in tune to your vacation and take that step out of reality you’ve been longing for.

Book

 

Sunblock
 

Well we don’t expect you to stay out of the sun but, we definitely expect you to protect your skin! It’s so important to always wear sunblock and reapply when necessary. Many skincare brands have been releasing sunscreens that are amazing and great for your complexion.

Sunblock

 

 

Sunnies

Last but not least, SUNNIES! For sure one of our favorite accessories and an absolute must for your vacay. We’ve been totally into the oversized look still but also loving those round sunglasses to give you that Boho Beach Girl look.

Prada

 Ah feeling some FOMO right about now! Sounds like we might need a tropical getaway ASAP!

If you’re heading somewhere warm comment down below and let us know!

15 Beauty Hacks You Need To Know

15 Beauty Hacks You Need To Know

January 12, 2017

Okay, so if you’re anything like us we love getting glam but sometimes a couple little beauty hacks make the biggest difference. We’ve got a few up our sleeves that might change your life… seriously. Major girl code is always share your beauty hacks with your fellow dolls. Let’s get started.

Beauty Hacks

Photo Credit: Kylie Cosmetics 

  1. Turn your pencil eyeliner into gel – ok this is actually super easy and works amazing. Just take any drugstore pencil eyeliner and warm the tip with a lighter for 1 second. Let it cool, then bam an intense, perfect smudge.
  2. Sweep your mascara towards your nose to make your eyes look wider… who would have known?
  3. When applying fake eyelashes, apply the glue to a bobby pin first then use to line the lash before placing it on your eye. 
  4. Put on a coat of lipstick and cover with a tissue, dust translucent powder over the top and your lipstick will last much longer
  5. Remoisturize mascara; don’t throw it out if it’s dried up! Add a few drops of saline solution and it comes back to life
  6. Apply dry shampoo to your hair at night before going to bed for best results
  7. Instead of using a towel to dry your hair use a tee shirt, you won’t create any friction and that means NO FRIZZ!
  8. Mix peppermint oil into your lip gloss for an extra plumping boost
  9. If you’ve purchased a foundation that’s too dark for your skin tone, add some moisturizer to lighten to desired color.
  10. Use white eyeliner to make your eyes pop on your water line and avoid dark under eye liners/shadows.
  11. Keep makeup wipes next to your bed, in case you’re too lazy to get up and take off your makeup at night. You’ll thank us later.
  12. Add concealer to your lips before adding lipstick or lip gloss to achieve a matte look
  13. Use Ben Nye’s Final Seal finishing spray for the most amazing matte finish ever, plus your makeup won’t move all night. 
  14. Add cornstarch to glossy nail polish for an instant matte finish, don’t waste your money on a matte topcoat.
  15. To make your hair look thicker brush a tiny bit of matching eye shadow into your part

Honestly, all these hacks are amazing and might just make getting ready that much easier. Comment down below some of your secret beauty hacks, we can never have enough.

XOXO DASH

2017 Fragrance Guide

2017 Fragrance Guide

January 5, 2017

2017 is a fresh start for just about everyone, with that being said there are a lot of changes people tend to make during the New Year. For us, we are definitely fragrance fien and finding that new perfect scent for your year is a MUST.

Take a look at our top 6 fragrances for 2017… PS we wish we could have them all.

2017 Fragrance

Who doesn’t love a Tom Ford fragrance? This perfume feels so luxurious when spritzing on for the day. With notes of orange and tuberose, spider lily, and cashmeran this scent feels almost warm and harmonizing. Definitely a scent for the ultimate woman, not to mention the packaging is drop, dead gorgeous.

 

2017 Fragrance  

Another outstanding package just makes this fragrance feel so much more luxe and the scent of this will definitely have you feeling that way. Champagne spiked with bergamot, cream orange blossom, and honeysuckle… I mean cheers to that, we already love.

 

 

2017 Fragrance  

Ok, so we mainly love this one for the unreal packaging but it’s also a major plus that the scent is to die for. While it may look like a cleaning product, don’t be fooled it’s bergamot, mandarin, and ylang-ylang with hints of raspberry, cedar wood, and peony. It’s basically fruity meets flirty and we love, love, love.

 

2017 Fragrance  

We loved this scent in 2015, in 2016, and we just can’t seem to get rid of it in 2017, if you haven’t tried this one… make it your go-to scent of the New Year. Trust us. It’s super warm and luxe smelling with mandarin, jasmine, orange blossom, vanilla, + coffee notes to name a few. Instant seduction.

 

 

2017 Fragrance

Another warm and cozy scent that features a smoky, manly essence while still staying ultimately feminine. The title doesn’t lie… it’s literally chilling by a fireplace on a winter night. Pink pepper, orange flower petals, vanilla, and cashmeran notes for that glowing warmth of Replica.

 

 

2017 Fragrance

Last but simply not least we cannot forget about this gorgeous little number from Valentino. This is the ultimate two in one, standing as a perfume and a hair mist. A delicate scent with notes of bergamot, iris, and Italian leather… you need NOW. This also comes in a normal fragrance if you don’t love the hair mist. 

Ugh, these are our absolute favorites to rock in 2017. Everything from classic scents to more daring-occasion fragrances, adding any of these to your collection surely won’t dull it.

Comment down below and let us know which you love for yourself this year.

10 Stress Relievers + New Year’s Resolution Ideas

10 Stress Relievers + New Year’s Resolution Ideas

January 3, 2017

Out with the old, in with the new. It’s that time of the year again when we set goals and strive for the best year yet. We’ve made our resolutions for this year along with a few steps for relieving stress that will help your new year and may even inspire you to achieve your goals.

 

This is one of the easiest but most successful ways to relieve some stress. We’ve made a playlist for when you just need to relax and breathe to get through the day.

 

Eating healthy can is a huge benefit to feeling less stressed and fatigued. When eating unhealthy it can make your day feel like a total drag, preparing healthy meals and snacks for your day will benefit you greatly.

 

There are so many different teas to that help calm and relieve stress. If you’re ever feeling overwhelmed we recommend having a cup of tea. The caffeine will give you that push for the rest of the day as well.

 

Exercising allows endorphins to be released into the brain which is a natural remedy for anxiety. Allowing your body to exercise daily will help level out your stress levels and make you feel better day-to-day.

 

Like exercising yoga has similar benefits and can release a lot of built up stress and anxiety. Yoga is also beneficial because you can do poses wherever you go! If you're feeling stressed at work we advise doing some light yoga or calisthenics with your co-workers.

 

Having a journal and writing your thoughts, problems, etc is an easy way to relieve stress. Sometimes talking about issues helps us understand what’s really bothering us and it can be a huge relief in itself.

 

 

Essential oils have shown to improve anxiety symptoms and stress. Most grocery stores like Whole Foods carry essential oils; you can even get a diffuser to use in your home. Lavender, Rose, and Chamomile are our favorites for stress relief.

A small kind act to yourself and usually a no-brainer, however many times we get so busy and forget to drink water throughout the day. Keep a water bottle of some kind with you at all times staying hydrating will make you feel great.

 

Taking three slow deep breaths in and then out as many times as needed helps manage your feelings of anxiety or stress.

 

Sometimes you just need to go on auto pilot mode and let yourself take a long drive. Play your favorite music and let any overwhelming feelings escape. This can be a great stress relief, allowing yourself time to think and be alone.

 We encourage you to try any of these out for yourself in times of stress or anxiety. These tips may immensely and many of them are so easy that you can do them on a day-to-day basis without changing much of your everyday routine.

With the New Year also comes a time to set resolutions or realistic goals for yourself to achieve. It’s fun to have a fresh start and be mindful of what you want to come in 2017.

 Here’s a list of 15 New Year’s Resolution Ideas- Make this your best yet!

 

  1. Meditate daily
  2. Learn something new everyday
  3. Pick up a new hobby
  4. Read more books
  5. Stop procrastinating
  6. Spend more time in nature
  7. Enjoy the Little Things
  8. Learn a new skill
  9. Create a positive attitude
  10. Be kinder to yourself
  11. Travel
  12. Volunteer
  13. Exercise everyday
  14. Be more grateful
  15. Start a blog

New Year's Eve Hairstyles

New Year's Eve Hairstyles

December 29, 2016

We can hardly believe that 2017 is only a couple days away, we’ve got our outfits, shoes, makeup, and last but not least we need to make sure we have the final touch… our HAIR!

We’ve been inspired by many different up-dos, waves, braids and more for our New Year’s Eve look. We want it to be the BEST yet!

Pop! Clink! FIZZ! Here are our top picks to ring in 2017 from the best of the best.

We love Khloé’s look here, it’s fun but a little bit edgy. This style is also super easy and works with most hair lengths.

New Year's Hairstyles

Section half of your hair into two pigtails, starting at your temple, and keeping the half up, half down look going. Take one pigtail and slightly twist and backcomb for extra volume. Wrap the pigtail around until you’ve created a bun. Secure with bobby pins or small rubber bands. Repeat for other side. After securing, use hairspray to finish the look and loosen the buns for a messy look.

This look is great for short hair lobs and bobs, if you’re unable to do up-dos or braids with the length. So classic!

New Year's Hairstyles

Start with clean, straight, dry hair. Add mousse of your choice for extra volume. We recommend using the Kardashian Beauty 3 in 1 for curling but any iron 1.5 or larger will work. The goal is to create loose ringlets in the middle of the hair, not at the roots or ends. Divide your hair into one-inch sections and curl alternating directions each section. Finish off with combing through your curls to make them extra loose and wavy, add texturizing spray and done!

A Kim K classic look, you can’t go wrong with this one on NYE! It’s so simple yet completely chic and timeless.

New Year's Hairstyles

Start with clean, straight, dry hair. Do not add products of any kind. Pull your hair back into ponytail at desired height and smooth strands with nylon and boar bristle brush. Secure with elastic band. Smooth sides with hair gel serum to provide hold. Spritz hairspray. Wrap around single strand of hair to cover elastic hair tie and pin in place.

This look definitely was a hot one for 2016 and we can only hope it continues to 2017.

New Year's Hairstyles

Split the hair down the middle using a comb to create two equal sections. Grab a small section of hair to begin braid. Divide into three equal sub sections and begin inverted French braid. Cross the two outside strands under the middle strand and continue braid under. Secure fly-aways with styling balm for sleek look. Continue down until you reach the bottom and tie off with elastic band. Repeat on other side. 

As effortless as this looks, this is actually one of the more difficult styles to get exactly how you like… but once you do you’ll be in LOVE.

New Year's Hairstyles

Start with second or third day hair. Add dry shampoo of your choice for volume. Tease your hair at the crown of your head. Part your hair down the middle, but keep it short, one or two inches only. Pull back your hair and loosely secure elastic band. Pull out pieces as desired and tighten to head for extra volume.

A polished blow out with a tiny bit of waves is so effortless. We love this look and it’s perfect for any occasion.

New Year's Hairstyles

Start with clean, wet hair and rough dry it with a towel. Apply fast dry spray while running fingers through. Start drying hair until about 80 percent dry. Separate your hair into four sections, crown, each side, and back. Twist and secure with clips. Attach nozzle to dryer and use nylon boar round brush. Use the brush to pull the hair upward as you direct the airflow down. Remove the brush and repeat until all sections are dry. Roll hair away from your face to create a look to frame your cheekbones. Lock in your style with a smooth finishing crème.

Comment down below and let us know if any of these styles will inspire your NYE look. What are you looking forward to in 2017? What would you like to see at DASH? Let us know.

XOXO DASH

Holiday Wrapping + Printable Gift Tags!

Holiday Wrapping + Printable Gift Tags!

December 20, 2016

Tis the season for gift giving and present wrapping! Wrapping presents might be one of our favorite parts of the Holiday season. It’s a time to be as creative as you want and make each gift special. There are so many wrapping options this year and we are loving the use of kraft paper and adding little festive décor to each present. It’s very easy and inexpensive but makes your gifts look phenomenally chic.

  

Typically for gift wrapping you’ll need scissors and tape of your choosing. Kraft paper is super versatile and you may already have some laying around the house which is even better. If not, you can pick up a roll for about $5-$10 at your local craft store. You'll also want to get some string of some kind to tie around your gift, we picked a candy cane inspired red + white, but you could get whatever you like. Lastly, you will need some little décor pieces to add to the top of your presents. We like the idea of fresh pine branches, which you can either gather from outside or the grocery store usually sells this seasonally. Other cute ideas are ornaments or snowflakes from places like Target or dollar stores.

You can add pretty much anything else you want to make it as festive as you’d like.

We’ve also created some printable gift tags to add to your presents as well. Simply select the photo to open in a new tab and download the file. Scale and PRINT! You can then cut out these super cute holiday tags and attach them to your gifts with string.

 

The best way to spread holiday cheer! Happy Holidays from DASH!

DASH Gives Back | December 2016

DASH Gives Back | December 2016

December 13, 2016

Every month DASH picks a different charity to donate proceeds from our DASH wristbands sold both in-store and online.  We support a culture of charity and giving back to those in our community and in need. This month we are donating the proceeds to Toys for Tots.

Charity Banner

 

Toys for Tot’s mission is to collect new, unwrapped toys during the October, November, and December months each year. Those toys are then distributed as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community. The funds we have collected throughout the December month will be donated directly to the charity to then help purchase gifts.

We are also giving back to our community at our corporate office by collecting toys and craft items to donate to the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. We have started our collection bin and the week before Christmas we will be dropping off all our goodies to be distributed to patients.

We love to give back in any way we can. It’s the reason for the season! If you are interested in helping support the Toys for Tots cause we encourage you to stop by your local DASH store or ShopDASHOnline.com to purchase a DASH wristband; for only $5 you can make a huge difference in someone’s life.

DASH x V2Bentley | Miami Art Basel 2016

DASH x V2Bentley | Miami Art Basel 2016

December 8, 2016

Art Basel started in 1970 and has since become a world-wide phenomenon that many gather for to experience the beauty and creativity of the art industry. We have participated in Miami Art Basel for the past few years and each time it gets that much better.

This year we partnered with Kentucky natives, now LA Based, designers & artists Caroline Bentley Noble and Katherine Van McKinney. The two founded the company V2Bentley (@v2bentley) where they create one of a one pieces “for the fearless and wild hearted only.” Kourtney, Kim, & Khloé's favorite street-style designers. 

Miami Art Basel

We turned our DASH Miami location into a hot 90’s haven, full of blow-up furniture, lava lamps, and custom canvas from V2Bentley accompanied by a collection of leather goods & one-of-one apparel. 

We honored Basel throughout the duration of the week and finished with one final hoorah on December 5, 2016. We hosted a private event and had the most stellar turnout ever, from artists, to designers, and even professional athletes. It was an amazing time to come together and celebrate the beauty of the creative minded. Our VIP’s received exclusive DASH x V2B merchandise as well as some DASH goodies.

A special thanks to our DJ Brittany Sky (@brittanysky), she kept the party going through the night and spun some killer tracks. Mike Sipe Entertainment provided the equipment to make this all possible. (themikesipe.com). Thank you both so much!

Drinks were flowing courtesy of Ciroc (@ciroc) and Sugar Factory (@thesugarfactory). How cool is this Ciroc slushy machine?! Sugar Factory also provided light bites throughout the night and finished off with some sweet rainbow doughnuts. Yum!

And of course, last but certainly not least… everyone’s favorite part of the party. THE PHOTOBOOTH. A huge thanks to Shutterbox Photo Entertainment (@shutterboxsfl) for providing such a rad photo booth, we couldn’t have asked for better.

Take a peek at our photo diary below to see inside our DASH x V2Bentley Miami Art Basel 2016 event! We can hardly wait for next year!

Holiday Soiree Beauty Must-Haves

Holiday Soiree Beauty Must-Haves

December 1, 2016

It’s that time of the year when we get all dolled up for our holiday events with family, friends, and co-workers. Picking the perfect outfit is major key but making sure your entire look comes together is also very important. We’ve picked our top 5 beauty essentials to create a holiday inspired look to go perfectly with that soiree cocktail dress.

 First and foremost, if you have not invested in a holiday eye shadow palette you need to do so now! We love the new Kylie Cosmetic palettes however; if you’re having trouble getting your hands on one of those this is definitely our next go to. Pick something that offers a combination of neutrals and colors so that you can mix and match throughout the seasons.

Holiday Makeup

Next, blush is definitely a must. A rosey cheek look is always so in during the Holiday’s and we aren’t mad about it. This is the time to go for those pink and red tones and step away from the nudes and orange tones.

Holiday Makeup

After blush we go highlighter crazy, as they say we need that highlight to be on fleek. There are so many amazing highlighters out there now that this one was for sure a tough one to choose. We had to go with out favorite palette where you get 6 for basically the price of one. How could you say no?

Holiday Makeup

 Lashes, lashes, lashes. Tis the season to bring these out, lashes can really make your look. We like to stay pretty natural and nothing too crazy but go for the long length to accentuate and open up the eye. This will truly make your look pop and dress your night up.

Holiday Makeup
Last but certainly not least, the lip. Another very important part of your Holiday makeup, winter is the time to play with those bold, darker shades especially when you have an event to attend. We love a matte lip this way you don’t have to worry about reapplying or ruining the color.

Holiday Makeup

All together these products make an amazing look and will have you turning heads at your upcoming party, event, or whatever it may be.

New Designer Alert // A Black & White Story

New Designer Alert // A Black & White Story

November 29, 2016

Black & White Story

We’ve just launched a new UK based brand in-stores and online and we wanted our blog readers were the first to know. We love what this brands stands for and how it was started with a cultural message in mind.

A Black and White Story brands themselves on “equality lies at the very heart of our brand. No matter what gender, race, religion, beliefs, age or sexuality, we believe we can live in a united world, a black and white world, where truth reigns.” How amazing is this? We are so stoked to be carrying these pieces and offering our favorite dictionary tees to our Dolls.

Black & White Story

Their pieces have also been worn by celebrity and blogger favorites such as Beyoncé, Tove Lo, Dani Song and many more.

Black & White Story

Make sure to get yours before they are sold out!

November 24, 2016

“Thanksgiving is a time of togetherness and gratitude.” Nigel Hamilton

We celebrated our Thanksgiving at DASH Corporate a few days early this year to ensure everyone could be together before traveling to family and friends over the Holiday weekend. We each brought different dishes to share as this has started to become our tradition. It’s so much fun to try each other’s recipes, enjoy one another’s company, and to be thankful for such an amazing team.

Some of the dishes we shared were green bean casserole, potatoes, cranberry salsa, macaroni & cheese, pumpkin pie, Oreo pie, rolls, pastries, and more. We can’t forget of course a DASH crowd favorite: Porto’s baked goodies.

New Designer Alert // My Mum Made It

New Designer Alert // My Mum Made It

November 10, 2016

 If you had a chance to read our blogpost featuring our new Buyer Janice Kim, you already know a lot of new is coming DASH’s way and we are SO excited. We have so many new brands being introduced as well as our very own private label. 

We just received our first shipment from our newest brand My Mum Made It and we are utterly OBSESSED. This brand is amazing and embodies garments we have never carried before but truly fit the new trends as well as the aesthetics of our style god’s: Kourtney, Kim, & Khloè.

Style Inspo

We are also a selected carrier for this brand so it’s super exclusive that we will be selling the collection. It's been worn by influencers such as Niykee Heaton, Amina Blue, + more. We love how streetwear inspired it is; this totally embodies the coming era of this trend. The simplistic silhouettes and compositions allow each wearer to style them as desired and layer up, making it a versatile and edgy collection for all.

 DASH will be carrying My Mum Made It in-store and online with pieces hitting both very, very soon. You can expect to see a lot of velvet, a lot of distressing, and some one of a kind styles like a bodysuit bomber, amazing right?!

In the meantime, check out their stellar Instagram and get excited for My Mum Made It at DASH!

Introducing our New Buyer | Janice Kim

Introducing our New Buyer | Janice Kim

November 1, 2016

 

DASH has come a long way since its launch is 2006 as a singular location in Calabasas, CA. As a multi-vendor boutique, we have not only expanded our stores nationwide and worldwide with our online shop, but our collection of handpicked pieces from top designers has grown immensely.

Today we are having a Q&A with our new buyer Janice Kim, who comes to us from an extensive buying background. She sneaks peeks what is to come for DASH's future.

Q: Tell us a little about yourself!

A: I’ve been in the fashion industry for 7 years & it’s never failed to keep me on my toes! I’m 5’2 but my friends call me Big Jan, I love my mules as much as my tennies, pizza as much as kale, and yoga as much as gangster rap.

Q: What does your role entail?

A: From styling the photoshoots, to product development for our newly launching private label, to actually curating the pieces in all our stores, I like to touch my hands on a bit of everything.

Q: What does a typical day as a DASH buyer look like?

A: What I love about buying is how dynamic it is. No two days may be the same, but what it comes down to is getting our stores the best, coolest product. If I’m out at the shows one day, I still need to manage inventory & sales, stay in touch with brands, and keep up with competitors.

Q: How do you decide which trends to pick up on?

A: It’s about making it work for your customer. Not all trends are relatable to the masses, and understanding the DASH girl (and guy) is the key part of my job.

Q: What is your favorite part of the job?

A: There’s a special place in my heart for product development. My end-goal always is for DASH to offer awesome, aspirational pieces you just won’t see elsewhere.

Q: What is the hardest part of the job?

A: Differentiating the trends or styles you as a buyer might like, but your customer might not.

Q: With being a multi-vendor boutique, which brands are your favorite or new brands you are looking to bring in?

A: Rag & Bone made me fall in love with denim. I once was notorious for never wearing jeans. I love every single piece from AREYOUAMI. I’m petite, and she knows how to dress a short girl.

Q: What are three essential pieces to splurge on this season?

A: OTKs (Over-the-Knee Boots), silk cami slip dress (I’m a sucker for real silk), leather backpack (can’t get over Kendall+Kylie’s).

Q: Who is/are your style icon(s)?

A: I obviously get heavy inspiration from our owners, and DASH thrives on their aesthetic. Hailey Baldwin slays.

Q: What advice would you give to people interested in this aspect of the fashion industry?

A: Work hard, work smart. More often than not, it isn’t glamorous. I got my corporate start at a major retailer, worked ridiculous hours, and built a foundation of skills I still use every day.

Q: What can we expect to see for the future of DASH?

A: New cool vibes are headed our way… we’ve already relaunched the site, and our DASH label collection is next. Stay tuned. xx

XOXO DASH

Fresh Face for Fall | Skincare Routine

Fresh Face for Fall | Skincare Routine

October 27, 2016

Just like your wardrobe and switching out styles per season, it's important to do the same for your skincare routine as well. You may be thinking "I'm going to use this product all the time, all year round." but in all actuality you really shouldn't. With the season's change it is important to make sure you are utilizing the products your skin needs. 
Step 1Cleansers
As always, cleansing is very important for your everyday routine. Making sure your pores are clean and open before moving to the next steps is crucial. If you have a cleanser that works for your skin type it's not necessary to change season to season as long as it's doing it's job. 
Exfoliate Exfoliators
While exfoliating is not ideal for every skin type especially acne or acne prone skin, if you are able to without causing breakouts, exfoliating is a must. It will not only brighten and rejuvenate your skin but will break down those old, dry skin cells we don't want. We suggest not over doing it and using a scrub 1-2 times per week. PS you can also exfoliate your elbows, knees, legs, etc not just your face! 
ToneToners
Toner can be really hard on your skin if you have sensitive or acne prone skin. When choosing a toner for your skin type make sure you evaluate all the ingredients present and to try to go for a gentle toner with a water base serum. We highly recommend swapping out your typical toner and using Witch Hazel in it's place. It will heal, soothe, and reduce inflammation like no other product. 
MoisturizeMoisturizers
The Fall and Winter months tend to be dryer meaning it's really important to make sure you are moisturizing your skin twice daily. Look for a moisturizer that has Vitamin E present as this will also help with anti-aging and keeping your skin looking young + flawless. Also try a cream base instead of lotion for more intense hydration. 
PrimePrimers
Priming your face especially in the Fall and Winter can make a huge difference in your overall finished look. Even if you're not going to be full glam, priming your face before applying makeup of any kind is key. This will protect your skin and allow a barrier for your makeup to not soak directly into your pores and clog them. We love primers with water-based composition as it makes your skin feel so lightweight and cleansed. 
Sunscreen + Face MaskSunscreenFace Masks
Don't forget to still apply sunblock to your face even in the colder months, although you won't be directly basking in the sun, damage can occur to the skin all times of the year. Mix your moisturizer with a lightweight facial sunblock for maximum coverage. You won't even notice it's there but you will be happy you did later. It's also a good idea to do a facial mask once or twice weekly to help keep your skin in check at all times. 
While each skincare routine is specific to your individual skin type, we are loving these tips when transitioning to our new products for Fall.
Comment down below with your favorite Fall skincare products you find work best!
XOXO, DASH

Outerwear We Live For

Outerwear We Live For

October 13, 2016

Whether we’d like to believe it or not, before we know it Fall will soon be over and the Winter months will be in full swing. With that said, our favorite time of the year – undoubtedly – is the transition period for fashion between the two where it is not too cold, but the heat wave has dwindled in its entirety. There is no more perfect time to swoon over amazing outerwear pieces that will soon come + go.  

 

Outerwear We Live For
Outerwear We Live For

  
A must have in your wardrobe is a coat or thick trench of some kind; we recommend a versatile piece for both indoors & outdoors.

We’ve said it before & we will say it again, but it’s basically a no brainier that if you don’t own a leather moto jacket or bomber you need to purchase one NOW.

 

Outerwear We Live For

Bomber jackets literally go with everything; it’s a must-have piece in your closet to transform your style into a sporty, edgy, carefree look for Fall.

No secret to twenty-sixteen, dusters have become the “IT” piece; a lightweight trench is also another piece you should be adding to your collection. This is the perfect garment to wear casual or dress up for nighttime while keeping covered.

 

Layering with a coats or jacket is always our favorite part of fall fashion, it gives you the ability to really complete an entire look from head to toe.

 

Let us know below what your go-to outerwear this season is in the comment section.

Costume Couture 2016

Costume Couture 2016

October 6, 2016

Halloween is right around the corner which means it is time to start planning your costume for this year. Instead of buying an already made costume, we encourage you to get an idea of who you want to be and put all the pieces together yourself. This makes for a super chic, one of a kind look plus you can usually wear the items you have purchased  to incorporate into the costume instead of being stuck with something you may never use again.

We pick a few of our favorites and took inspiration to create our very own looks from our current collection at DASH. Costume Couture 2016

Mani + Pedi Report Fall 2016

Mani + Pedi Report Fall 2016

October 4, 2016

Picking your nail color this Fall may be a bigger deal than you even realize, with so many color tones surfacing and trending it can make or break your nail game if you go wrong. We have curated a few combos of our go-to nail hues this season. Now, we love to keep the manicure + pedicure the same and tend not to mix it up, however we advise you to step out of your comfort zone and try these remarkable duos.

Mani + Pedi Report Fall 2016

 

Pair different shades of purple and mauve, these hues while still in the same family give a complimentary look while being able to have different tones on your hands & feet.

Mani + Pedi Report Fall 2016
 

If you don’t want to step out of the box too much, go for a deeper red than you typically would. Pairing this red with an off-white grey brings the hues full circle without being overbearing.

Mani + Pedi Report Fall 2016

This combo is perfect for your girly side if you’re looking for something pink toned but want to stay away from summer colors. Pairing a deep nude with a cream color for your toes is so chic!

Mani + Pedi Report Fall 2016

In the past we have loved black for our manicures, however this year we are seeing more navy and blue tones popping up. Pair your navy with a super light almost white grey for your pedicure for a super luxe look.

These are our favorite combos for the Fall season and can even be used for the transitioning period to Winter. We’ve stepped away from our traditional nudes/pinks and have incorporated deep tones and light hues.

Comment below and let us know which combination you are going to try!

Xoxo, DASH

It’s no surprise that this print is making it’s way back into Fall, as it always does. We love having a flannel all year round but especially during the September-December months. This piece is really the perfect addition to your wardrobe, whether you’re tying it around your waist or wearing it as a button up… YOU NEED!

Hello Autumn!

As the days + nights get chilly and we progress into the colder days ahead, a scarf is definitely something that won’t go to waste. This piece is so versatile because not only can you wear it to be keep warm, it’s a great piece to be fashionable in. There are so many options out there but these are definitely our faves.

This beauty must is for sure more daring than usual, but we recommend trying it at least once. Black liner is of course a classic but this season we are seeing so many red and burgundy tones especially for eye makeup. Try switching up your everyday liner for a shade like this.

One of our favorite things about Fall are the scents that come out this time of year… Pumpkin, Crisp Autumn Air, Bergamot, Heirloom Mahogany, + Soft Musk are just a few of our favorite notes. We have an amazing DIY for a home fragrance, simmer pot that is super easy and will make your entire home smell like the Autumn.

Hello Autumn!

What you’ll need:

-2 Navel Oranges, Peeled

-1/2 cup Dried Orange Peel

-1 Apple, Sliced

-1 tsp Cloves

-3 Cinnamon Sticks

-1 tsp Cardamom Pods

-1 tsp Fresh Ginger

-3 Star Anise

-Medium Sauce Pan

-5 Cups Water

 

*You can use almost anything you like or whatever you have available to you will work.

Mix everything together with large pot of water and simmer on low for however long you want. Add additional water as needed. You can also use a crockpot instead of simmering on the stove.

Hello Autumn!
 

This scent will stay within the home for days + hours, you can also reuse your mixture for a few days and cover when not simmering. Not only is the smell amazing, it looks beautiful too. So easy!!

NYFW Recap

NYFW Recap

September 20, 2016

We had major NYFW fomo this year…. We say this everytime but I think this has got to be one of the best fashion week’s we have seen thus far. The new trends for the upcoming seasons are absolutely breathtaking and as edgy as ever before. We spotted a few of our favorite celebs and of course our number one family the Kardashian/Jenners, killing it as per usual.

We picked our Top 5 runway shows, we believe are must see’s if you haven’t already.

NYFW Recap

The show took place outdoors at Roosevelt Island as Kanye West debut he Season 4 collection for his first runway show. We were so excited to watch, as his collection is always so unique and astonishing. Of course, we were definitely not disappointed.

It was no surprise that HBA challenged the norm for its Spring 2017 show. We saw double pointed shoes going in both directions, a new take on the graphic/band tee, and a lot of rearranged motifs. Calling this collection daring and edgy would be an understatement.

This show shut down the city... but seriously… Ralph Lauren had a portion of Madison Ave closed off for his show as he repurposed his storefront for his runway. We saw a bunch of western inspired silhouettes and detailing, we even spotted our favorite Kendall Jenner walking this show.

After unique show, Philip Lim took his collection to a warehouse with dull lighting, and a dirt covered floor with flowers. We saw tons of floral patterns and a Victorian essence to the entire collection, ruffles and all. Of course we saw his strong suit in outerwear, including his infamous leather jackets. Overall, a very feminine inspired collection for Philip Lim 2017.

NYFW Recap
 

Out of this world… literally. Marc channeled a stellar, rave inspiration for his 2017 collection. Pattern play is huge in the coming seasons and Marc Jacobs really took that into account, we saw so many retro, alien like patterns come to surface throughout the entirety. If one thing is for sure, every aspect of Marc’s shows do not go unnoticed, from the hair, makeup, and fine design details throughout. His shows are the total package.

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles

September 15, 2016

Traveling to Los Angeles? Or live here and looking to explore places + spaces you’ve never been before? We’ve got the in on all the “secret” places LA has to offer, if you’re new around here you probably didn’t even know they existed!

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles

Ostrich Farm – Echo Park

One of the best brunch spots you’ll find, this place does not get the justice it deserves. A super intimate find with only about 50 seats including a cute little bar + with the trendiest interior. Owned and operated by husband and wife Jaime Turrey and Brooke Fruchtman, here you’ll find almost everything locally sourced and super fresh tasting. We recommend the avocado toast + seasonal fruit selection for a light brunch option.

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles

 

Guerrilla Tacos – Food Truck

Our next pick is a food truck, so if you’re interested in this one be sure to check their Twitter or Instagram to make sure you catch them at the right spot. This place is most definitely not your ordinary taco truck; their goal is to make gourmet food available on the street. They have different menus daily because all their ingredients come from local vendors... yum! As more of a fusion type taco spot they have everything from sweet potato tacos to swordfish and so much more!

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles

 

Round Two – Melrose Ave

With streetwear being the latest hype it only makes sense we fill you in on some of the best streetwear, vintage shops. Shop Round Two on Melrose Ave and you’ll find all those amazing pieces from designers such as Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Nike, Adidas, and so much more. The selection is very unique and one of kind – you probably won’t be able to find these items anywhere else. If you’re not able to make it to the store itself, not to worry they offer online shopping too.

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles

 

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles

Escondido Falls – Malibu

Located in Malibu, when the water is flowing this is one of the finest waterfalls in Los Angeles you will probably ever see. Situated in the Santa Monica Mountains, this trail is actually not very well known unless you’re a local. It’s about a 3.8 mile hike and is slightly challenging so don’t let that discourage you in getting to the falls itself. Dogs and bikes are also welcome, and best part it’s free! No permit or fee is required.

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles

 

Echo Park Pedal Boats – Los Angeles

If you’re looking for something outdoorsy to do rather than go for a hike or hit the beach you must check out Echo Park for pedaling boating. This is super fun and actually really great exercise! The lake has been recently restored so it’s super clean and is filled with beautiful Lotus beds. It’s super inexpensive and refreshing, at only $5 for children & $10 for adults.

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles

 

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles
 

Point Dume Beach – Malibu 

Like anyone who is in California, you’ll probably want to hit the beach at some point or another. If you’re a local you generally avoid the beach at all costs due to overcrowding and tons of tourist. At Point Dume Beach in Malibu, this is the perfect spot for a quiet little getaway not many people know about. The beach entrance is a little tricky to get to and you’ll most likely have to park in the neighborhood near by and walk. To get to the beach you have to descend a bunch of really steep stairs, so plan ahead for this. This is one of the best-secluded spots around.

Hidden Gems of Los Angeles

 

That wraps up our hidden gems of Los Angeles and we hope you check these out if you are in the area. Comment down below and let us know if you’ve been to any of these places or plan to visit them soon!

How to Style 101

How to Style 101

September 13, 2016

 

How to Style 101

This trend has become a closet essential and we honestly don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon. If you haven’t added this to your wardrobe yet, we highly recommend you do so starting now.

Styling a duster can be really easy, but also rather difficult. It’s a simple piece that can be thrown over a plethora of different looks but can also take away from the other garments you pair it with by over doing the entire look. Don't worry Doll, we're here to help!

An easy go-to look is a pair of denim, a tee/tank, a pair of sneakers, and a dainty choker if you want to dress it up a bit.

How to Style 101

How to Style 101
 

 1. Naked Wardrobe Duster / 2. Trunk Ltd Blank Holey Tee / 3. Jaquie Aiche Curb Chain Choker / 4. One Teaspoon Fox Freebirds

This is going to give you that sporty essence that is HUGE right now. 

Not so sporty? It’s okay. You can still wear a duster, let’s dress it up. Pairing a duster over a simple dress can make your outfit really chic. Pair it with some heels and a low-slicked pony (like Kim K) and you’re ready to go.

How to Style 101

1. NFD Maxi Duster / 2. Donna Mizani Lace Up Dress 

 Our final look is slightly more casual, however, we recommend adding heels to this look to keep it glam and sleek. This is perfect for work, meetings, or going out with friends.

 

How to Style 101

 1. NFD Satin Duster / 2. Naked Wardrobe Sheer De La Crop / 3. Kendall + Kylie Pierced Skinnies

With a little help you can totally nail this look and you definitely want to this Fall and Winter. 

Be sure to take some style inspo from our favorite sisters, Kourtney, Kim, & Khloe. We are obsessing over how they styled their looks above.

Comment below and let us know your favorite looks and which duster you’ll be getting! View all our dusters here on www.shopdashonline.com

Our Beauty Essentials

Our Beauty Essentials

September 8, 2016

There’s nothing better than feeling refreshed for a new season or month. Sometimes finding those Holy Grail beauty products can be quite difficult, but not to worry we are here to help. Whether you are looking for something to clear your problem skin or need a go to makeup palette we have got you covered. We have said it before and we will say it again, look good, and feel good. Xo

Our Beauty Essentials

Taking care of your skin is so important as well as identifying your skin type. To purchase the correct products you need to know if you have oily, combination, or dry skin, this will make all the difference for your daily skin regimen. Sometimes if you are using the wrong type of products this can be the cause of your breakouts, to prevent this make sure you see a skincare specialist to help your identify this crucial factor.

  Our Beauty Essentials

$80 - One of our favorites, this product is key if you have acne prone skin. However, this will make you breakout for about 2 weeks, but trust us afterwards your skin will be glowing more than ever before. This formula helps clear congested pores and treats acne as well as clears the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is basically an all in one situation that you won’t be able to resist.

Our Beauty Essentials

$24 - If you are looking for a slightly cheaper option to clear and dry up any blemish or acnes spots we recommend trying the Kate Somerville acne products. Not only does it take care of current acne it will also help prevent any future breakouts. It contains a high amount of sulfur, which is what is able to heal the acne so quickly and effectively. This product is also amazing for those pimples you can feel coming on but can’t quite see them yet… just dab a bit on the spot and it will immediately prevent it from surfacing.

Our Beauty Essentials

Next to skin, hair care is just as important. This Fall we are still loving that beachy, wave vibe that makes for an effortless chic look. Executing these waves can almost seem near to impossible if you aren’t using the right product, but we haven’t failed you thus far… we have the inside scoop.

Our Beauty Essentials

$28 - Think you have tried every single product out there and none of them have worked right? This product will literally change your life and put you at ease and it works on most hair types. It’s super easy to use and you can apply it to damp or dry hair. Once you have misted your hair root to ends you will start to notice the wave activation to give you the most perfect waves. Way too easy? We are obsessed.

Our Beauty Essentials

We really like the natural glow makeup for this season, we want to look clean and glowy but we also aren’t super into the whole heavy eyeliner, dark eye look. Move your focus to your face and highlighting and contour your bone structure as this will be enough to wear you won’t need to over do the eyes.

Our Beauty Essentials

$40 - Okay, right off the bat this is almost a no brained buy, I mean $40 for 4 highlighters from Anastasia... That is basically $10 a highlight and you can’t go wrong with a high-end brand for this price point. You will fall in love with this palette; its assortment is so versatile for both night and day. This is also the perfect palette to get if you are new with highlighters, it gives you a ton of options and it is totally cost efficient.

Our Beauty Essentials

$29.50 - While we love keeping that natural glow alive, a sweep of mascara is always necessary as while to keep your lashed hydrated. If you have never tried this mascara before, we highly recommend doing so. Our team here at DASH raves about this product, as it is one of the only mascaras that doesn't dry up super fast. We know it’s a little on the pricey point for a tube of mascara but this will have your lashes looking flawless.

 

If you can’t tell these products are for sure on our top list this season, as they should be for you. Comment down below if you have tried any of these products or you plan on doing so.

Fall Trend Report

Fall Trend Report

September 6, 2016

The long awaited moment has finally arrived, a favorite for many, the transition from Summer to Fall. New York Fashion Week kicks off this week just in time to see many new fall trends worn by some of our favorites in attendance while showing new designer collections for the upcoming seasons.

We’ve pin pointed in on a few of our favorites we expect to see this season and we can’t wait.

As the street wear trend is on the rise we can expect to continue to see hoodies as well as sweatshirts in general be crucial fashion pieces this Fall. We will be seeing a plethora of different silhouettes including dress hoodies, cropped hoodies, and our favorite graphic hoodies. We also are excited to see hoodies of different fabrication on the rise, including leather, denim, and much more.

We have seen velvet trending in many past Fall/Winter seasons and we have already gotten our preview this past Summer with the introduction of the velvet chokers to the mass market. We can expect to see full velvet pieces including dresses and jumpsuits, as well as jackets. Designers have honed in on the elegance of velvet and how to execute this fabrication in a silhouette timelessly.

While we will be sporting faux fur this season you can expect furs to be more in than ever, and we aren't talking just any basic furs. Between pattern play and different colorations we have rarely seen on the runway until now, be prepared for all eyes to be on you. Textures are very important this Fall and mixing and matching furs and different fabrics will be the key to your look.

This year we lost an inspiration, music legend, and icon to many, however, we won’t let David Bowie be forgotten as we are taking his infamous Ziggy Stardust boots and making them a top tier trend. We are talking the uber chunky sole boot that has also been seen on the Spice Girls and now on the runway. However, if you’re not into the large soled boots, no worries, over the knee, mini booties, and suede are still blessing us this season.

You can look forward to new movies to hit the box office this month including the long awaited film Sully, based off a true story. As well as the new Apple iPhone 7 that is expected to launch very soon. 

All the news trends to look forward this month make us utterly excited for all Fall things to come. Comment down below and let us know what looks and new, new you’ll be into this month.

Denim Decoded | Guide to finding THE perfect pair of jeans.

Denim Decoded | Guide to finding THE perfect pair of jeans.

August 25, 2016

 As we all know by now, finding a pair of jeans to fit your body type exactly how you want is actually really challenging. Unless you have that go to brand or particular style, trying to go for new washes, fits, and silhouettes can be trial and error before you fall in love.

But no worries, we feel the struggle and we are here to help the pain! Thanks to our DASH Corporate team, we’ve correlated a denim edit to find the perfect fit denim for your body type and/or style you want to try this season.

Let’s find your match made in heaven, xo

 

Denim Decoded | Guide to finding THE perfect pair of jeans.

Flares have definitely made their comeback within the last few years, however, almost everyone is still saying they aren’t their style or the fit just isn’t right. Flare denim can be tricky to find the pair for your body type.

Our fave: Mia Flare by Hudson

5”4 and under: We recommend finding a more subtle flare that isn’t going to make you look like you’re drowning or shorter. Get them a little longer than you normally would so that you can wear heels and this will make you look taller and slimmer. If you are curvier, make note that flares may not be for you, and may give a triangle effect to your overall shape due to height and curves.

5”5 and up: If you are taller and column like, flares are definitely your friend and will synchronize your natural proportions. Flares look great on you because your legs are able to bare the volume of a wide leg bottom. You can rock bell-bottoms, super wide leg flares, or basically whatever flares you want.

Denim Decoded | Guide to finding THE perfect pair of jeans.

 

Relaxed Skinny the style that falls right in between skinny jeans and boyfriend jeans. Many styles have been taking over the classic skinny jean and we have seen less and less down to the ankle skinnies. Fashion has focused its eyes on a relaxed fit that remains loose and tappers slightly at the ankle.

Our fave: Lux White Freebird II Skinnies by One Teaspoon 

5”4 and under: If you are very petite, relaxed skinnies are for you. You know that boyfriend and mom jeans don’t work out very well for you, as you generally look swallowed or childish in these. But with the tapering at the ankle for these, they allow you to get that vintage baggy look but still compliment your body and height.

5”5 and up: If you are taller and curvier, a relaxed skinny is probably your go to baggy jean as it fits like a skinny still so you have the room in the hips and butt that you don’t find in mom or boyfriend jeans. For slimmer silhouettes, we recommend staying away from this style as the baggy + slimness of this denim makes your proportion look very uneven.

Denim Decoded | Guide to finding THE perfect pair of jeans.

Distressed Denim Heavy distressed denim is very on trend lately and we have seen more and more designers experiment with this style. We recommend for everyone to at least own one pair of distressed denim.

Our faves: Go See Skinnies by Blank NYC

5”4 and under: When finding a pair of distressed denim the main thing to take into consideration is the placement of the distressing. If you are short, we recommend staying away from denim that has heavy distressing on the knees if you aren’t able to find petite. You’ll notice that the distressing falls below the knee where it should not. This gives the legs an elongated effect in all the wrong places. Stay with distressing at the hips and thighs, as well as raw cut hem detail.

5”5 and up: Distressed denim works well if you are taller because the placement of the distressing generally hits at all the proper areas. However, if you are slimmer we recommend staying away from heavy distressing above the knee and stick to the full open knee or distressing below, as this will avoid any chance of the overall fit being lost.

Denim Decoded | Guide to finding THE perfect pair of jeans.

High-Waist A favorite versatile style for almost all body types, we can agree that high waist denim is here to stay. High waist denim shows off the true shape of your body and embraces your femininity while being super trendy at the same time.

Our fave: Sophie High Rise Skinnies by A Gold E

5”4 and under: High waist denim gives off the illusion of being taller and having longer legs, the super benefit of this style. If you are curvier, go for a high-waisted denim with a thicker waistband and less pocket details, this way everything will lay nice and flat and contour your waistline to look smaller.

5”5 and up: Take into account the inseam when purchasing high-waisted denim, we recommend shopping between 30-35 for the inseam, this will allow the pant to fit exactly where it should both at the waist and ankle. If you are slim, high-waisted anything usually slims you out, look for jeans that have back pockets that sit higher than usual to give you an instant butt lift.

Denim Decoded | Guide to finding THE perfect pair of jeans.

Skinny Jeans A trend that will probably never end, although skinny jeans may be taking a back burner to all the new styles and silhouettes they are still here to stay.

Our fave: Nico Midrise Super Skinny by Hudson

5”4 and under: The key to skinny jeans if you are short is to make sure that you are getting the appropriate length, nothing is worse than skinny jeans that bunch at the bottom and make you look shorter. If you can’t find the proper length, we recommend getting your denim tailored to fit you or cuffing them at the bottom to avoid this.

5”5 and up: If you are tall, take into consideration that skinny jeans are going to slim you out like the high waisted bottoms and fit very snuggly to your figure. That being said, try a bunch of different styles and sizes to avoid any sagging in areas where the pants should fit tightly. Also, wearing heels of some kind with skinny jeans if your taller will actually add the illusion of curves to your shape.

Denim Decoded | Guide to finding THE perfect pair of jeans.

Girlfriend Jeans it is no longer all about the boyfriend jean, we are all about the girlfriend. Basically more form fitting than the boyfriend jean but flatter you unlike a mom jean, girlfriend jeans will hug you and your curves in all the right places.

Our fave: Fox Black Freebird Skinny by One Teaspoon 

5”4 and under: Basically your best bet if you are short and slightly curvy, girlfriend jeans have a higher rise in the back and the front allowing the pocket placement to really flatter and slim you out and you can get them over your hips. With the straight leg cut these are also great for short girls because you will most likely be able to find the proper fit and length all in one without alterations.

5”5 and up: Also very flattering for taller silhouettes, due to the straight leg design these jeans aren’t going to slim you out too much in the legs. You will still hold your perfect proportions throughout this style but be more comfortable than in a low-rise boyfriend jean. However, you may need to get these altered as generally the hips and butt are made larger in these styles.

 

We know finding new denim or trying new styles is no walk in the park, we hope we were able to answer some of your questions and give you some feedback from our DASH Corporate Dolls on what denim might work for you. Comment below and let us know what style of denim you will be sporting for the upcoming fall season!


Xoxo, DASH

Back to School

Back to School

August 16, 2016

We can hardly believe this time of the year is already here… Where did summer go? Whether you are going back to school, college, have a new job, or are looking to spruce up your office wear for the fall we have got you covered with back to school tips and tricks.

Back to School

Kourtney and Kim on one of their first days of school. How cute!

Back to School

Throwback back to school style with Kris and Khloé.

Stay Organized

The best thing about starting fresh with a new year is being able to keep yourself organized to make sure you are on top of things. We recommend getting yourself a planner or a journal of some kind to be able to document your day to day and to do lists.

 

Stay Motivated

It sometimes can get tough to get out of bed every morning or not procrastinate when it comes to getting work done. Our best advice is to make sure you are eating breakfast and drinking a glass of water right away when you wake up as this will help jumpstart your morning. 

Don’t Stress

We know it can get very stressful once the work piles on and you have so much to get done in so little time. Well stress is very normal; at DASH headquarters we have learned a few things to really help us get through stressful days.

  1. Turn on some tunes
  2. Use essential oils such as lavender or peppermint
  3. Get up and walk around
  4. Calestatics – quick motor exercises/full body stretch
  5. Breathing exercises

 Look Your Best

There are so many new trends taking over the fall season that we are so excited about. While being at school or sitting in a desk all day we know how important it is to look good but also be comfortable. We created a week of outfits to kill your first week back.

LA Places & Spaces || Cycle House

LA Places & Spaces || Cycle House

August 11, 2016

We stressed the importance of looking good and feeling good in our previous lifestyle post and now we want to share one of our favorite places more in depth. Here at DASH we have been in love with Cycle House for a while and a majority of our Los Angeles dolls are regulars here. In recent years we have made it a tradition to host an American Cancer Society event with CH so they have become very near and dear to all of us.

Cycle House has two locations with talks of more to come in the future. Currently one in West Hollywood at the corner of La Cienga and Melrose conveniently located near our DASH location. Additionally, they have another location right on Ocean Ave in Santa Monica.

LA Places & Spaces || Cycle House

In 2011, Cycle House opened its door to a location on Melrose before expanding into a larger space in West Hollywood and then Santa Monica. Parents-to-be Lara and Adam Gillman who had the vision to create a fitness experience unlike any other founded Cycle House on the mantra of Strength in the Struggle.

LA Places & Spaces || Cycle House

With some of the best instructors in the cycling world, you can expect to see blood, sweat, and tears in any class you take. You will feel empowered, motivated, and you will for sure want to come back for more. Each instructor will have you pushing yourself to the limit and working harder than you ever thought was possible.

Never spun before? No problem, CH loves newcomers and will help you with the basics before beginning your first ride and making sure you are comfortable. Complimentary spin shoes are offered at both locations, they recommend wearing leggings and don’t forget to bring socks.

Stay hydrated, as spin is very tiring, they offer filtered water systems so make sure to bring your own water bottle. Arrive 15 minutes early a member from the team will check you in and get you ready for your ride! We promise you’ll be happy you went!

Another amazing thing about Cycle House is they are all about contributing to a great cause every one ride that is taken at the house means 2 meals donated to communities around the country. Additionally, CH is known to partake in many charity rides including our very own yearly event DASH x Cycle House ride. 

So get ready, get set, and sign up for spin! Whether you live in the Los Angeles area or are planning a visit we highly recommend taking a ride at the house after visiting DASH on Melrose.

Shop the Selfies

Shop the Selfies

August 9, 2016

It’s not news that our favorite family will forever be the reigning Selfie Queens, let’s be real… Have you ever seen a selfie of Kim, Kourt, Khloe, Kylie, or Kendall that you didn’t love? Nope, we didn’t think so.

Although, our selfie game will never be as strong as our faves, we definitely want to grab a few tips from the best. First and for most, what you’re wearing is key. We’ve complied a few of our favorite selfies so that you too can “Shop the Selfie” to find the exact pieces or similar items as the sister squad from shopdashonline.com.

Kim

As author of her very own selfie book “Selfish”, it’s a no brainer that Kim K West takes the best selfies. Talk about hot mama… we are obsessing over Kim’s bod and her closet.

Kourtney

Hot mama alert part two, Kourtney Kardashian has been flaunting some phenomenal looks lately from at the beach to the gym and nights out, and we can’t get enough.

Khloe

We envy Khloe as the ruler of the hottest revenge body yet. Not to mention, her simplistic chic style makes us envy her even more. Can we be you Khlo?

Kendall

As a model, being in front of the camera for Ken is nothing new and that can be seen through her amazing selfies. How can you not love her natural, elegant look?

Kylie

Taking after her big sisters Kylie has definitely stepped up to the plate with her selfie game and we admire Ky stepping out of the box and trying new things when it comes to fashion.

  • Wow you gals are truly my inspiration!! I love all the looks and can’t wait to shop!! You really need to open a store here in Phoenix.. I have been in retail management for years and I think Dash would be a huge hit here. All of you have been through so much and you’re real survivors! I’m going through some really hard times right now and I look to all three of you for strength and well, a way to handle things. Thank you all for being so strong and showing other women how to plow through and look great while doing it!
