Fake It Until You Make It


As a young professional, in school or fresh out of college, it's pretty fair to say you don't have a very disposable income. As much as you covet the new Prada loafers or Chanel bag or that insane Margiela coat... Ugh, there is just no way you can afford it all, even if you skip a few meals and walk home rather than take the train or a cab. That's when you find ourselves searching for more affordable but equally as fashionable alternatives. Rushing to all young fashion lovers' rescue is the online wholesaler. 

Recently, there has been a boom in the popularity of wholesale websites, often internationally based, that offer youngsters unique and designer-inspired apparel and accessories for super cheap. One of the most popular of these sites, especially among the blogger community, is Lovely Wholesale. Located in Hong Kong, Lovely Wholesale, has an abundance of fun, unique pieces updated on their site almost daily and their prices are sometimes hard to believe. It's so easy to find wearable pieces that fit in your budget.

There is nothing like purchasing a luxury fashion item. It's a piece of history, a symbol of craftsmanship, and a work of art. It feels wonderful. But fast fashion, like fast food, can be okay in moderation. It’s the easiest and cheapest way to stay stylish, and is made fast to keep up with current trends. And you know what they say, fake it until you make it. So, until you are a CEO or a famous movie star, you don't have to starve yourself of fashion - Lovely Wholesale has your back.

Here are some of Dalton's favorite selects from the site:

bottoms debut Goodbye EP

Last week, New York's bottoms, the self-proclaimed "two shitty drag queens, a 303 and a drummer", and “gender-problematizing goth dance band” that grew out of Brooklyn’s DIY space Secret Project Robot, release debut goodbye ep (12" vinyl here and digital here) on January 20th. In honor of the release, the band hosted a party on Friday January 23rd at Secret Project Robot. 

The band was also featured in a rather revealing interview with VICE last week, which opens with the band huffing poppers before going on stage. Check it out here.

Last December on World AIDS Day, bottoms revealed their "hiv" track from the debut goodbye EP .“People have spent a long time keeping quiet about HIV,” Dibeler tells Vice. “Conversely, I think it's really important to scream about it.”


Upcoming Tour Dates
Wed 4/15 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands @ Vrankrijk
Fri 4/17 - Paris, France @ Nuba
Sat 4/18 - London, UK @ Club Motherfucker

Bomber Barrel


So, we here at the WearHouse District are always searching for new exciting brands and products, especially ones that mix functionality with style.  Recently, we found what we think may actually be the perfect carryall bag. Enter, the Bomber Barrel by Bomber & Co. Successfully funded on Kickstarter about a month ago, this bag is a godsend for anyone on the go. Whether it be traveling, going to the gym, hiking, camping, or just popping around the city, the bag is perfection.


The Bomber Barrel is inspired by the classic duffels we are rather familiar with, but upgraded for the modern age, using ultra grade nylon, a minimal design, and very light weight. And it's black - creating depth and elegance. The Bomber & Co. team wanted to create a timeless duffel bag design that could be used for anyone, all the time. It's classy enough to carry to the office, durable enough to take hiking, and efficient enough to use in travel, making it an essential item. 



The Bomber Barrel has an unbelievably spacious interior, perfect for laptops, tablets, smartphones, dress shoes, and other travel necessities. The main compartment can hold items like clothing, or shoes; and an interior pocket is great for small valuables, such as wallet, or phones; while offering an outside zipped pocket to quickly access essentials.

2015

It's weird to think that 2014 is already gone. Where did the time go? I actually feel like I just stepped into 2014 only a few weeks ago, and yet so much has changed since this time last year...

All that being said, I'm not sad to see it go. I'm too excited for the new year. New stories, new challenges, new goals, new wins, new adventures. If New Years Eve is any indicator of what's to come, 2015 will be one amazing, eventful, and fun year. 

My best friend and WearHouse veteran, Veronica, hosted an amazing party for NYE to ring in 2015 with friends, family, tons of food, fireworks, and photo booths. We all dawned white outfits, in Veronica's Brazilian tradition, and toasted to the memories of 2014 and the possibilities of 2015 with champagne, sparklers, and a glitter-filled balloon (yes).
