TESLA MOTORS

Part (often times too much) of the LA lifestyle goes to anything and everything associated with cars: driving from one side of the city to the other, traffic caused by the stupidest things, stop signs and signals, the new Bluetooth-piece-is-my-new-everyday-accessory law, and of course, the ever so instable gas prices.

GREEN is the new BLACK

Barneys New York, basically the greatest department store in the planet, is gettin’ it, and hittin’ it big. It’s like heaven when you step inside with the ability to “ball and drop a few G’s”.
