Ask any of my friends and they will tell you that I hate paying retail. Everyone loves a great deal, and when a brand you buy and love goes on sale for up to 80% off it is enough incentive to go shop. James Perse makes wonderfully soft casual clothes in the $50-$300 price range, so 80% off makes the prices go down to $10-$60! I love their t shirts which last forever and are my most travel friendly pieces since you can wear them alone or under a shirt as a layer, and yes they make clothes for men.

Even better than a sale is one which includes live music and the infamous Lake Street Creamery ice cream truck, you know the one which has donut flavored ice cream, (which can be scooped into a cherry soda to create a jelly donut float). All this starts today through Sunday at 585 Venice Blvd., Venice Beach, CA 90291 from 10am-7pm.

Just make sure you don’t eat so much ice cream that you can’t fit into your new clothes (or you can buy a larger size, just in case).
