Hats Off!



        You could say I am definitely a hat   person.  Hats are a form of expression.... They make an average outfit go from drab to fab and provide the hat wearer instant edge and personality.  Any opportunity to wear a hat I take it so when I discovered Tenth Street Hats website I fell in love.







                                                                      Tenth Street has managed to curate a hat for every occasion on the site which is great for me and my many wardrobe changes on my Travel show.  These fabulous selections showcased will be packed on our upcoming shoot featuring The Maldives.  Each says something a little different..
The Blue Fontainebleau at just $89 screams beach safari.  
And the Tijeras hat at just $30 with its colorful tassels has a "daytime outing" feel.


Whatever your mood and style you can find 
the perfect hat style on this cool website.
Also, every hat on the site has been hand picked to maintain the highest quality and  best fit.  In fact, many of the selections have drawstring closures like this Raychel Hat to guarantee the best fit for each individual. I'm such a fan -Tenth Street Hats is my go to resource for all the hats worn on my TV show 'Travel Time with Linda'!






Check out this video on the Tenth Street's craftsmanship sourced from the highest quality materials from around the globe and brought together by some of the industry’s foremost experts. 
Don't know a boater from a boonie?
A fedora from a flat cap?
Check out their hat glossary on all the many styles and see what 'floats your boat':.-)

The Curator of Cool Celebrates 40 years of Greatness

 On my recent visit back to my hometown, I had the pleasure of reconnecting with "the curator of cool," Ron Robinson at LA's shopping landmark Fred Segal on Melrose Ave.  Inside his namesake store Apothia by Ron Robinson he shared with me a few of his latest finds and a few secrets to his success as this year marks the 40th anniversary of this iconic store. 

       For those of you unfamiliar,  Fred Segal’s was and still is the Shit..... it was my mainstay  growing up in LA... Red, White and blue BABY!! 
I  hung out at the Melrose location literally every weekend growing up so of course 
I had to share with him a few select memories.
 Casual lunches at Mauro’s cafĂ© for “see and be seen bites” catching up with friends, chatting with newcomers such as Usher and yes...after lunch followed by many, many shopping jaunts.  So, so, so many great shopping moments they all blur together, 
but one in particular stands out for me....
I was trying on clothes in the dressing room when in the next stall an insecure Uma Thurman who had her Nanny and her newborn with her asked me the proverbial, “Does my butt look big and I answered “No you don’t look fat in those jeans”.:-). She ended up getting not only the jeans but scored armloads of new wardrobe for her newly matured body. 

Known as a launching platform for brands for decades, if a product line scores 
a coveted place inside the store they know they've arrived. 
While shopping the store with Ron, I noticed that many of the same faces 
shopped with 20 years ago are still a part of his dedicated team.

Coming soon just in time to launch before Ron Robinson's 
40th anniversary celebrationNovember 15th.  
This device is fabulous to throw in your purse
for instant hydration and there is also a bronzer available from the line!





Another favorite find of Ron's is this ingenious 

EXCLUSIVELY SOLD IN THE U.S. BY RON ROBINSON*
The Lyric Speaker is the next generation listening device that is about to change the way you experience your favorite music. Start playing your favorite music, and this device automatically generates beautiful lyric visuals on its transparent screen
Trust me....this is so cool, and of course so is he~

And MY TOP PICK from Ron's latest in store curations~ 

Designed for Modern Travel I fell in love with G-Ro's sleek design and "GravityRoll" Wheel Technology that's smoother than any other small-wheeled luggage brand, and that says a lot because I'm a Travel Host!! 
Not only is its maneuverability incredible, so is its craftsmanship, performance and style.  Designed for functionality this G-RO Carry On pictured above offers charging while on the go with completely separate removable components and great storage space for all my shoes. :-)  
Also available in sleek backpacks and Check-In luggage that you can choose your matching wheels, this brand was a MUST HAVE for Travel.  I was OBSESSED and I knew I had to incorporate it on my Travel Show.....so guess what?! 
G-RO IS NOW OUR OFFICIAL LUGGAGE SPONSOR ON 
"TRAVEL TIME WITH LINDA"!!

Congratulations Ron on your 40th anniversary of greatness!  To find any of these products go to RONROBINSON.COM and

HAPPY SHOPPING!!!
