It’s no secret that the new season of “So You Think You Can Dance?” is already proving to be one of the most exciting ones to date – and the Wednesday-night edition of this summer staple was no exception.
Last night’s round was crucial, as two couples are set to be eliminated this week. First up was Miami’s very own Ricky Jaime, and his lovely partner Ryan performing a sultry, sexy Jazz routine that had even the dancers blushing!
After jokes and laughs over embarrassing secrets, Ryan & Ricky (or should we say Roderick!), jumped right into rehearsal. We were nothing short of ecstatic to see that Ricky was keeping cozy in the studio with our Love 2 Love Turk Peace Hoodie! We love the way he looks in it almost as much as we love him!
Ricky and Ryan rocked the routine, set to Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love”, and received excellent compliments from the judges!
The following night at the results show, Ricky donned the stage in none other than our Love 2 Love Ming Chaos Hoodie – a perfect symbol for what was probably going through his mind as Nigel announced he was safe for another week of the competition!
We definitely agree with Mary: we’re “addicted to the two of you” — could she have been talking about the hoodies, as well as the dancers?
Today on “Good Morning America” the final three Stars and their Pro partners were interviewed about being in the finals. We all know it took a lot of hard work and dedication and we are excited for all the final three contestants! This season we were thrilled to see the Stars and Pros wear our new Love 2 Love Collection during rehearsal and interviews.
After last week’s scary neck injury, Kym is back in business and doing it with Perfection, as she wears the I am Perfection fleece pants. Kym won’t be taking any dives this week but she’s flying high and hoping to win that mirrorball trophy!Chelsea wanted to show Mark the love, not only by wearing Love 2 Love white Love fleece pants but she brought out an early birthday cake for Mark (he turns 25 on Tuesday, finale night!). Happy birthday, Mark!!
If you had a chance to swing by the Coral Gables store on Saturday, April 9, you would have thought Justin Bieber was there shopping! The house was packed from one end to the other with the most adorable kids in town (and at least one from out of town!).
At this event we were able to meet the group of semi-finalists in the Kids Model Contest and take some test shots on our fun and kid-friendly canvas backdrop. And boy, were these kids cute! Some were shy, some were outgoing, but they all had beautiful smiles. We are still in the process of selecting the finalists but we wanted to share the photos with our fans. We know you are all excited!
If your child has a photo in this slideshow, you can order a print through Flickr. Enjoy!
Yesterday morning, Alina was featured in a segment of the local NBC morning talk show “South Florida Today” where she had the opportunity to chat with newscaster Trina Robinson about the new Love 2 Love and Peace Love Boheme collections, debuting this spring! We had two outfits from each collection modeled by the lovelies Penelope, Kayte, Sol, and Laura — including a preview of Peace Love Boheme’s Fall 2011 collection, hitting stores and the internet in September 2011.
Love 2 Love and Peace Love Boheme are becoming quick favorites everyone who spots them! Love 2 Love is now available at our local stores in Coral Gables and Sunset and will be available, along with Peace Love Boheme, online soon!
Check out the behind-the-scenes photos from Alina’s “South Florida Today” appearance! A clip of the interview will be posted soon so be sure to come back and check that out!
Twice a year thousands of apparel manufacturers and designers descend into the desert of Las Vegas, Nevada for MAGIC. This is when the buyers from all the stores you shop from come to buy what you will see in their stores next season. And Peace Love World is happy to have been part of it! This season we had a booth that was four times the size of our very first booth in 2009. We’ve come a long way since then! We’ve expanded not only our product categories but also added several new collections and (gasp!) COLOR! Always true to our black and white origins for our staple tees and hoodies, we added in a splash of color (okay, more than a splash) for the first of many new collections. These collections were available at MAGIC and will be coming soon to a store near you.
Love 2 Love is a collection that captures the essence of a fun and energetic consumer and channels it into chic casual wear. All of our symbols are represented including Peace, Love, Happiness, Blessed, Chaos and introducing…. Light. Each symbol is produced in it’s own array of colors including a gorgeous turquoise and a eye catching green also known as “ming.” Love it! What’s the biggest surprise of all? Yellow! Yes, this bright and happy color is found on none other than the “I am Happiness” design. It’s bright, it pops, it’s just what we need to brighten up any dull and dreary winter day. Amazing! Each piece has incredible detail from the embroidery to its signature Love 2 Love patch. Each piece also carries the Alina quote, “Love is not something you look for, love is something you become!” And what’s even better than all these new additions to our adult contemporary line? It’s coming soon in children sizes as well! Get ready to have your socks knocked off! Gorgeous!
The Boheme Collection can only be described as rugged elegance. You can wear it around town running errands, as a beach cover up, or dress it up for a special evening out. They are all in subtle colors like frost grey, blush, white, black and army green. Every piece is LOVE. Fall colors include darker tones with the same message.
Pima Cotton and Wide Leg Pants are some oldies but goodies. We’ve reinvnented these staples to be part of the Spring 2011 season by adding new colors (hello, Army!) and doing crazy things — like going sleeveless! These pants and tops can be worn together, separately, or mix it up with all your other staple pieces. Comfort and cozy is what you will get when you slide into these soft pieces for Spring. Cliick here to see the newest versions of our favorite wide leg pants.
There are so many new and exciting additions coming soon including the Boyfriend Collection, Peace Love Dreamy, Gentlemen Collection. Stay tuned as they unfold online and through our e-mail newsletters. We can’t wait to share them with you! Click here for a slide show of some of the great new styles and colors.
Hello my name is Andy and I am a suitcase that belongs to one of the employees at Peace Love World. I’m new to the traveling scene because she got me just a few weeks ago and I was surprised to feel my wheels moving to the end of the bed and see Patty (that’s my owner) start to fill me up. Patty, known for being a light packer, was loading me up with a lot of clothes, very unlike her I thought to myself…..but who cares were taking this show on the road! She threw on her new Army Green Wide Legs, she said goodbye to her husband, dashed out the door and we headed to the airport. I wasn’t sure where we were heading but after a long hop, skip and jump to the west coast we ended up in SIN CITY, also known as Las Vegas. Pulling up into the hotel I saw signs for the “Magic” show everywhere and my zippers almost melted! We were at one of the largest trade shows in the country! This is the place to be when you are a popular and fashionable up and coming brand, much like Peace Love World. From the moment we landed it was full steam ahead. The Peace Love World Team sure knows how to build a booth and quickly too. The show started on Sunday and the crowds were all over their booth! From the new Love 2 Love Collection to our signature Pima Cotton tops the overwhelming response to the brand and positive message was beyond what this crew could have imagined! From the new Peace, Love, Happiness, and Chaos buttons we were giving away to our ever popular wide silicone bracelets people were trying to get their hands on everything! I was so proud to be in their booth, although tucked away in a little corner; I felt like part of the team!
After a week of excitement I was ready to call it a week but somehow when I got off the next plane ride I wheels were FREEZING! This was not Miami weather and the Chrysler Building had not moved to Florida over the weekend. Thank goodness Patty had packed her Love 2 Love Red Fleece Hoodie and Pant inside me to keep me warm! And the beanie and scarf set she packed helped keep this native Miami girl warm! I was in the city that never sleeps, also known as New York City! I couldn’t believe that these girls still had the stamina to get through another trade show week, but boy did they show me. With only one day to set up the booth these girls flew and worked like the Peace Love World Mafia they are! The next day Patty was rolling me into Coterie, another amazing trade show at the Javits Center in NYC. For 3 days they made their mark and had just as good a show as they did in Vegas with half the staff and half the time. I don’t think I could have imaged a better way to accompany Patty on my first work trip with her. Not only did I learn that Peace Love World has some amazing clothes I also got to know the amazing crew that they have.
I am ready for my next trip, as long as my wheels get a few hours of sleep and Patty keeps filling me with all this new fabulous clothes Alina keeps making!
As the saying goes, “The way to someone’s heart is through their stomach,” which we would happily defend but we’re too busy enjoying this cookie …
Meanwhile, Peace Love World’s got something cooking at the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival, currently serving up delicious dish (and not just the edible kind!) from all your favorite television chat show hosts and culinary wizards.
For the tenth year, the cable net hosts your favorite personalities like Paula Deen and Giada De Laurentiis, alongside world-class chefs (Rick Bayless, Alain Ducasse) for a three-day stint. Under the Miami sun, these gastronomic gods whip up tasty treats paired with the most delicious wines (which won’t be the only things leaving “full-bodied!”).
Maybe you can’t cook like an Iron Chef, but you can look like one: As a sponsor for this “Festival of Edible Delights,” PLW is outfitting the event’s chef talent and VIP attendees with our I am Chef Apron. Want one too? That’s easy as pie.
