Father’s Day Gifts by Personality: One-of-a-Kind Gifts for the One-of-a-Kind Dad

When it comes to dads, no two of them are the exact same, yet all of them are impossible to shop for, especially on Father’s Day when the pressure is really on.

While there may not exist a one-size-fits-all Father’s Day gift solution, The Grove has something special for every type of father, no matter how unique (or picky) he may be.

Show pops he’s number one with these second-to-none gift ideas, now trending a​t The Grove.


When ties and golf balls won’t do the trick, look to the cool new tech toys on the block to turn dad’s smile up a few megawatts.

Snapchat Spectacles
Snatch up a pair of Snapchat Spectacles, now dispensing at the Snapbot. Each pair features a built-in HD camera that lets you record video in a 115-degree field of view (much wider than your average phone) and upload it to Snapchat. Dad will look cool wearing them and feel even cooler sharing his Snaps. Available at the Snapbot vending machine, located near the fountain ($130).

Raden Luggage
A favorite among celebrities, Raden makes travel a more seamless and enjoyable experience with sleek, cutting-edge luggage equipped with charge capabilities and built-in scale and location awareness features. As for what to get dad? “The matching A50 Set is the way to go,” says Thomas Isen, Director of Communications and Development at Raden. “You get the A22 [Carry] and the A28 [Check] for $95 off what you would spend individually.” In terms of color, Isen recommends the navy matte or hunter matte. Available at the Raden pop-up, now through June 28 ($595).


Got a dad who secretly enjoys shopping for himself? Show him good taste runs in the family by gifting these cool-dad essentials. 

Illesteva Wynwood II Sunnies
Illesteva’s handmade-in-Italy, fiery-hot Wynwood II round-frame sunglasses turn the fashion dial up a few notches with their red mirrored lenses, sleek frame and sculptural brow bar. Added bonus for mom: they’re unisex and ultra-flattering on all face shapes. Available at Illesteva ($175).

 

Le Labo Made-to-Order Scents
Forgo the conventional bottle of over-powering, chemical-laden cologne in favor of a “soulful” scent made fresh for dad, right at the time of purchase. Crafted from the highest-quality ingredients and formulated by men who understand firsthand how guys actually want to smell, each fragrance is destined to become a new signature scent. When shopping for dad, consider top-sellers like Santal 33, Vetiver 46 and Bergamote 22. For a personalized touch, Le Labo will customize your label with dad’s name. Available at Le Labo ($78+). 

PAIGE Becker Shirt
Father’s Day is a great time to start introducing easy-breezy separates into dad’s summer wardrobe. For shirts, The Becker from PAIGE is your guy. Available in a couple of equally versatile prints (our favorite is the preppy-retro Blue Sail Pace), The Becker features a cuffed sleeve and single pocket, and can be paired with almost anything for an effortlessly cool and classic summer look. Available at PAIGE, $169.

   

If dad’s idea of the perfect Father’s Day kicks off with a five-mile run and a few hundred burpees (all before breakfast), these picks will really get his heart racing.

AirPods
Save dad from the tangled mess of wired headphones during his workouts with Apple’s game-changing AirPods. Just pop them in, tap and enjoy five hours of talking and listening on a single charge. AirPods pair seamlessly with all Apple products including your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad or Mac. Available at Apple, ($159).

Shinola + St. Pierre Bocce Ball Set
The perfect Father’s Day activity and gift rolled into one, this tournament-grade bocce set features solid, one-piece construction balls crafted of thermoset resin for precision roundness and balance. Available at Shinola, $250.

Halcyon Days Enamels from Great Britain Golf Box
Got a dad who eats, sleeps and breathes golf? You’ll hit a hole in one with this beautiful, leather-lined keepsake from Halcyon Days. Available at Lucy Zahran & Co. ($545). 


For the dad who’s saved every handmade piece of art you’ve created for him since the day you could hold a crayon, you can’t go wrong with these priceless and thoughtful gestures. 

Outdoor Picnic at The Grove
Treat dad to a relaxing and memorable picnic in The Park coordinated by Parkside Concierge. Swing by to reserve your chairs and order a delicious meal from a handful of your favorite Grove restaurants including Ladurée, The Whisper Restaurant and Lounge, Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill, and Bar Verde (along with additional treats like s’mores and fondue!). Parkside Concierge will deliver your food, provide you with an iPad to stream movies and shows from Netflix, and help you arrange games and activities like cornhole, life-size Jenga and more. Visit Parkside Concierge, located next to Pressed Juicery, to make arrangements.

Daddy/Daughter Celebration at American Girl Place
What could be a better Father’s Day treat than a special outing with your girl? Together, you’ll savor a delicious meal in the café and make new memories both of you will cherish. Your together-time will fly by with a fun dice game and a make-your-own “memory board” craft. Plus, you’ll receive a spiral book to record the best moments of your daddy/daughter outing, as well as a picture frame. $36 per person (gratuity not included); reservations required. For girls ages 8 and up. Please note, prepaid event reservations are non-exchangeable and non-refundable. Call 877.247.5223 to make reservations. 


If the way to your dad’s heart is through his stomach, these culinary treats are sure to hit the bullseye.

Wherever Dual Fuel Grill
Keep dad grill-happy 365 days a year with the Wherever Dual Fuel Grill from Crate & Barrel. A combination charcoal and electric grill, it’s the first portable fuel grill of its kind, and works perfectly for backyard cookouts, picnics and sporting events alike. Plus, don’t be fooled by its compact size: It features 176 square inches of cooking space to cook up some serious flavor. Available at Crate & Barrel ($79.95).

Sushi Sundae Sunday
Father’s Day is also Sushi Sundae Sunday at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill!  In between shopping and catching a movie, treat dad to fresh sushi with a summer twist: a handroll “cone” with your favorite fish and toppings, each for $8. Available from 2 – 5 pm, outside of Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill. 

 

Sprinkles DAD Box
A sweet gift that’s guaranteed to earn you brownie points? The Sprinkles DAD box, filled with a dozen vanilla milk chocolate, red velvet, black and white, and salty caramel cupcakes. Available at Sprinkles Cupcakes ($45+).

5 Ways to Edit Your Closet for Fall

CA_editorial_SortItOut_960x470

In Southern California, where the weather can remain scorching well into September, it may be hard to get excited about cooler weather and the chic wardrobe that comes along with it.

But, rest assured, jacket weather will be here before we know it. Soon, knit sweaters will move to the front of the wardrobe rotation and ankle boots will begin replacing the tasseled sandals that saw us through summer.

To prep and edit your closet effectively, consider these five tips and tricks for creating an efficient working wardrobe this fall.

CA_editorial_SortItOut_header1

A daily uniform is not as monotonous as it sounds. It simply means recognizing your go-to styles for work, weekends and going out. Once those basic silhouettes and pieces are identified, you will have an easier time getting dressed day to day, especially during a harried morning.

Whether it’s a suit, jeans and a nice blouse, or a more fashion-forward ensemble, establish what is going to be appropriate for your daily environment throughout the changing season. Make tops such as long-sleeved button-downs, lightweight sweaters and wool suiting the focus of your closet so that such essentials are visible and easily accessible.

CA_editorial_SortItOut_header2

Many of the heavier items you rely on for fall and winter may have gotten a bit musty over the last few months. Whether they have pilled fabric or a distinguishable mothball scent, heavy sweaters, coats, scarves and hats may need to take a trip to the dry cleaner. That way, they’ll be ready to go as soon as the temperatures start to dip.

CA_editorial_SortItOut_header3

Identify the pieces that make sense splurging on this season. If you rely on a functional yet chic workbag to tote around daily, consider making this an investment piece. The same goes for your clothing. Make the timeless pieces teeter toward the higher end, while purchasing trendy items (namely a bomber jacket, a cape jacket, body suits or metallic items) at favorite street-style stops like TOPSHOP TOPMAN and XXI Forever, where trends are rampant and the quality still holds up.

CA_editorial_SortItOut_header4

Making room for heavier pieces may require boxing and shelving those lightweight rompers, denim shorts, off-the-shoulder blouses and mini dresses. Consider buying a few airtight containers to store hot-weather gear. Just be sure to label the boxes’ contents so that if you travel somewhere warm or L.A. has an all-too-common heat wave, you can easily grab those sandals and dresses.

CA_editorial_SortItOut_header5

Ankle boots (both heeled and flat) are the perfect transitional footwear. Wear them with kicky dresses while the weather is still warm; then, throw them on with jeans, a sweater and coat once fall really settles in. Stack heels are still really on trend with all footwear, but particularly with boots. Lace-up boots also feel very current and add a slightly casual touch to your look, making them more versatile for work and play.​

Fashion Advice From Melissa Magsaysay, Lesson 3

SOS_blog_header_v1-2

It’s always tempting to move kids into mini-me mode, especially while back-to-school wardrobe shopping. This fall, the runway-to-recess vibe is easier than ever as several of the biggest trends for fall easily can be duplicated in littler sizes.

But it’s not all fashion for fashion’s sake. These particular trends are also practical for the little ones.

Consider the following fall 2016 looks for creating stand-out style that’s appropriate for school while still letting your kid’s personality shine.

SOS_blog_subhead1_v1

PufferCoatsTory Burch channeled a sporty, ’70s equestrian look throughout its fall collection, and this cool puffer coat in a vibrant shade of cobalt is a perfect example of how form and function can comingle effortlessly.

Try a bold-colored topper to throw over any outfit. The color helps a child stand out (especially on a crowded school yard), brings a cheery feel to his or her overall ensemble, and provides some much-needed warmth when the temperatures start to dip. Plus, the gorgeous cobalt blue is a timeless, gender-neutral option so siblings can share and pass it down.

SOS_blog_subhead2_v1

ShinyAccentsPlaying up a sporty ’70s aesthetic, Lacoste incorporated plenty of dramatic materials into its fall collection, including chic and shiny ponchos, skirts and tops.

After all, what kid doesn’t love something a bit shiny? Whether it’s an embellished detail on a shirt or an entire jacket made from a slick material, replicate this statement-making style with something that helps your child shine even more than he or she already does.

 

 

SOS_blog_subhead3_v1

FlowerPowerThe cool, quirky look of Gucci is bound to influence just about every fashion-filled closet this fall. With metallic, floral and fringy motifs, it’s anything goes in the best way possible.

The eclectic nature of Gucci at the moment naturally lends to the fun and funky way kids love to dress. Go with an exaggerated floral theme on a dress, sweatshirt or just about anything to show that even the most standard themes can feel exciting again.

Fashion Advice From Melissa Magsaysay: School of Style, Lesson 2

SOS_Comfy-Chic 101_blog_header_v1-2

Considering that getting back into the rhythm of school after a long, carefree summer can be tough to say the least, the temptation to wear tried-and-true, comfy sweats, or pajama pants and a lived-in tee is understandable.

But that doesn’t mean it’s ideal.

With incredibly stylish alternatives available at The Grove, those frumpy, oversized sweats have no place in a back-to-school routine. Whether testing out the athleisure look, getting playful with your denim or rocking a silk bomber jacket, there are myriad ways to ensure comfy still means chic.

SOS_Comfy-Chic 101_blog_subhead1

Truth be told, the pajama-set look is a major trend, so you can successfully wear sleepwear-inspired pieces and still stay at the head of the class, style wise.

Nothing is more comfortable or forgiving than an elastic tubemate waist. Pair these with a slightly cropped, boxy T-shirt, simple slides and a denim jacket for a casual, off-duty look.

SOS_Comfy-Chic 101_blog_subhead2

A sweet and simple dress is actually the easiest look to throw on each morning (even after a late-night study session). Just pair with some high-top sneakers and mirrored sunglasses, then dash to class.

SOS_Comfy-Chic 101_blog_subhead3

The bomber jacket is the smartest sartorial hack of the season because it adds instant cuteness to pretty much anything happening underneath.

TOPSHOP TOPMAN has a reversible version that is especially great because you get extra mileage out of just one piece. Pair it with cropped black jeans and a cool white T-shirt, and you’re sure to stand out as the style star on campus.

SOS_Comfy-Chic 101_blog_subhead4

Let a pair of embellished or embroidered jeans do all of the work for you. Each is like a jolt of instant style and can be worn with super simple pieces like a plain T-shirt or a half-tucked button-down.

Fashion Advice from Melissa Magsaysay:
Summer Style

CA_blog_decodethedresscode_header_v1a

The events synonymous with summer are some of the most exciting and adventurous, though dressing for them is often not the easiest.

Also, when the weather is warm and the sun is beaming, standing in front of your closet contemplating an outfit is the last place you want to be spending the gorgeous daylight hours.

Dodge the struggle altogether by following these foolproof tips to looking effortlessly chic at all of summer’s main events.

CA_blog_decodethedresscode_miniheader_v1a

CA_blog_fourthofjuly_v1aFashion Dilemma:
Dressing festive without looking like the American flag.

Style Solution:
Sure, the Fourth of July is a prime opportunity for sporting stars, stripes, red, white and blue. But try not to wear all of them at once. Instead, opt for pops of patriotic color paired with denim or a neutral khaki. Also, earrings, sneakers or a tote bag are perfect places to showcase a star motif when heading to a long-weekend barbecue.

Break up an all-white outfit with a raffia bag, straw-boater hat and a hit of navy in a crewneck sweater, which is a useful layering piece come sundown.

 

CA_blog_decodethedresscode_miniheader_v1a2

CA_blog_weddings_v1aFashion Dilemma:
Finding the right dress and shoes for wedding season.

Style Solution:
Floral prints, especially on a long dress, feel right for weddings held in a garden or other outdoor settings. Consider Calvin Klein’s moody florals or the prairie-style blooms festooned across the dresses in Coach’s spring/summer collection. Both versions feel romantic and summery but will also transition easily into fall.

Also, resist the urge to wear sky-high strappy or lace-up sandals if the ceremony or reception is being held on grass. Spiky heels will sink if the ground is even the slightest bit damp and make for a precarious walking situation. Wedges or flats could be the best option and are certainly less painful for dancing through the night.

CA_blog_decodethedresscode_miniheader_v1a3

CA_blog_travel_v1aFashion Dilemma:
Feeling comfortable yet looking chic.

Styling Solution:
The number one rule for summer travel is to dress in layers. Try a foundation of charcoal-colored, slightly slouchy, cropped sweatpants and a black or white linen T-shirt or button-down. Leather Vans slip-on sneakers or cool leather mules from Vince make those security checks move faster, plus look really good. Bring a Madewell denim jacket and drapey scarf along and it’s luxe-looking, first-class comfort all the way.

Find Out What LA’s Most Stylish Tastemakers Are Packing For Their Summer Travels

CA_blog_tatsemaker_header

As summer rolls around, wanderlust tends to grow in all of us. And really, between school being out and the temperatures being favorable around most of the world, there’s no better time to pack a suitcase and escape somewhere to unwind and enjoy the local food, culture and landscape.

In addition to the dreamy nature of the destination, there is plenty of glamour in what one packs to wear and enjoy while there. Personally, I look forward to packing because it’s like putting together a highly edited selection of the best pieces of your wardrobe.

For your summer adventures, I recommend starting with a piece or two of Tumi luggage for its durability and timeless design. A smaller must-have is Caudalie’s travel-sized Beauty Elixir, which is a refreshing and moisturizing mist that keeps skin glowing in the air and on-the-ground. And finally, Beats headphones and an iPad stocked with movies, magazines and TV shows are essential for making the flight more fun.

For other travel picks, we’ve tapped Los Angeles’ most stylish tastemakers from the fashion, lifestyle and beauty industries to share where they’re headed this summer and what their in-flight and on-the-ground fashion, beauty and wellness essentials are for ensuring a chic and healthy stay.

I can really check out and hang my mental ‘do not disturb’ sign on my soul and being. There are a few remote, tourist-free beaches I love going to and will definitely be making appearances at. As well, I love The Dolphin Restaurant and Bar Acuda in Hanalei and will for sure be having a meal (or seven) there. If nerves permit, I’ll also go ziplining for the first time when I go!”

Summer Style

CA_SummerStory_BlogPostHero_960x470_v2b_051116_preview

Summer is here, and it’s the perfect time to get outside and enjoy all of the amazing perks that Southern California has to offer.

From sun soaked hikes to long days spent at the beach, the outdoors are calling and the right active wardrobe and accessories, that are as stylish as they are practical, can help kick off the season with a bang.

When it comes to athleisure and a workout-ready wardrobe, Beyonce’s new Ivy Park line works whether doing some outdoor shopping or going on a neighborhood stroll. It has the same edgy, street aesthetic that the pop icon is known for and raises the bar on what’s possible with comfortable, casual clothing.

For brightening up those basic black leggings and tank tops, Nike and The Gap have a vast array of colorful, graphic print options that make switching out or mixing up basic staples easy and inspired for summer activities. Try mixing up your florals and patterns with your fitness clothes. It’s a bold move, but just like in fashion, playing with prints can be fun, plus make for an outfit that moves beyond your workout.

Sneakers are also an easy way to inject some summer-ready vibes into your outdoor wardrobe. There are endless options of bold brights, floral or animal print styles that transition seamlessly from the studio to the street, plus liven up a post-workout look of jeans and a T-shirt.

And while outdoors working out or simply enjoying the season, sun protection that’s sweat proof and effective is easy to come by when it’s packaged as a portable stick with a sport-ready formula.

While sun block helps beat the heat from the outside, try keeping cool from the inside as well, with a chilled concoction from Pressed Juicery. The delicious juices are as refreshing as they are delicious and make summer snacking lighter and healthier.

From brightening up an active summer wardrobe to finding the right sun protection and cool, edgy sneakers, kicking off summer has never been easier or more stylish.

Melissa is a regular contributor to Los Angeles Times, The Hollywood Reporter, Glamour, C Magazine, WWD and Harpers Bazaar. She is also a regular on-air style expert to Access Hollywood, KTLA Morning News and has appeared on national morning shows as well. Check out her broadcast reel here.

Covering everything from red carpets to runways, starting April 19th, Melissa will utilize her celebrated sense of style to share weekly tips, tricks and insights about fashion, beauty, dining and entertaining with you via email. Her articles also will live on The Grove and The Americana at Brand websites.

Here, Melissa gives us a bit more insight into her world, in her own words.

CarusoAffiliated_MelissaMagsaysay_Intro_Book
DID YOU ALWAYS KNOW YOU WANTED TO WRITE ABOUT FASHION? HOW DID YOU START YOUR CAREER?
I have always wanted to be involved in fashion. I had subscriptions to Vogue, W and Sassy magazines starting at 12 years old. I would flip through all of them (often two or three times) and trace the models’ clothes and tear photos out and tape them all over my walls. I loved the colors, the patterns, the models and seeing the nuances of different looks and trends. I was hooked. As I got older, I volunteered to be involved in any and all fashion-related activities such as coordinating the high school fashion show event by Showbox, designing costumes for my high school play and joining the Nordstrom Fashion Board. I studied English and writing in college. After graduation, I quickly got to work interning at magazines and assisting stylists in New York City.

Now, I love that I get to combine my love of visuals, fashion and writing across a few platforms, namely print, digital, books and television.

WHAT ARE YOUR GO-TO PIECES FOR CREATING THE PERFECT LOOK?
To me, perfect means clothes that make you feel confident and effortless. If I spend the day noticing my clothes, then it’s a sign it’s too much or that my outfit might be wearing me rather than the other way around.

My go-to look is usually a tailored button down shirt tucked into high waist, cropped jeans. Either vintage-style loafers (current favorites are my classic black Gucci slip-ons with gold horse-bit detail or perfectly worn-in brown leather loafers I picked up in Buenos Aires and of which I wish I had bought 10 pairs!) I rarely change out my gold jewelry and generally have a pair of Celine, Prada or Garrett Leight sunglasses with or on me.

CarusoAffiliated_MelissaMagsaysay_Intro_BarneysI love uniform dressing, but not to the degree that it takes the fun or imagination out of fashion. Having a general template of pieces in a silhouette that suits your body, attitude and environment, and playing within that realm, is a great start to creating your own “perfect” look.

WHERE ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE PLACES TO EAT AND SHOP AT THE GROVE AND THE AMERICANA AT BRAND?
How much time do we have?! No, really though, I think like many people who visit each property, every experience is different and that’s especially fun if you have young kids like I do. My son loves the trolley but is always pointing out and discovering new things each time. I personally love shopping at Madewell for everyday essentials; Barneys New York for, well, everything; J. Crew for the family and me; Under Armour and Nike for working out; Apple for office must-haves and Nordstrom (particularly the revamped beauty counters) to satiate my inner beauty junkie.

CarusoAffiliated_MelissaMagsaysay_Intro_SushiAs for restaurants, Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill is a current favorite, not just at The Grove, but in all of Los Angeles. It not only has mouth-watering sushi, but the fried chicken with wasabi honey is up there with my other vice, chocolate. The Whisper Restaurant and Lounge is perfect for a girls’ night or post-movie glass of wine. It’s such a great spot. And, over at The Americana at Brand, Bourbon Steak is my go-to for lunch. It has a fantastic menu and the setting is beautiful. And, of course, there’s Din Tai Fung. The best dumplings on the planet! What could be better than shopping followed by its dumplings? Yum.
