The brand American Apparel, which recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, conjures up images of stylish and well-fitting fashion basics. It also likely brings to mind sassy advertisements featuring long-haired beauties in natural makeup posing in skin-bearing bodysuits and loungewear.
But what many don't know about the brand—despite its name and the slice of apple pie that comes with every purchase—is that all of its clothes are made in America. Everything from sewing and cutting to accounting and marketing happens in one building in downtown Los Angeles, and the rest occurs within a 30-mile radius. Not only that, every slim-fitting pair of pants, spandex bodysuit, and v-neck T-shirt is made in a sweatshop-free environment.
Plus, keeping everything in house means the company eliminates unnecessary and wasteful factors, such as shipping fuel and packing materials, as well as provides jobs to Angelenos, instead of outsourcing them.
The Spa at Commerce Casino ensorcells forms with treatments that sap away stress and improve introductory aesthetics. Revivify tired mugs with the 30-minute Fast Signature Facial, which begins with an in-depth skin analysis that identifies epidermal problems, including dryness, excessive oil, and difficult-to-detect camouflage pigmentation. Pore cleaning unclogs acne-prone skin, followed by a choice of a hydrating or deep-cleansing mask that lets face-bearers customize their rejuvenating treatments. In the therapeutic Swedish massage, skillful digits ease kinked-up bone movers, leaching out achiness and leaving muscles relaxed enough to avenge crushing Twister defeats from arrogant Gumbys. An ionic foot bath finishes off spa sessions, gently coaxing toxins out through feet with the allure of a warm bath.
Ask Lourdes Limon why her raspados taste so good. She'll say, "Por que los hice con amor"—"Because they're made with love." Now that her sons have taken over the family business, they use the same secret ingredient, but they've added a few new specialties. Supplementing the shaved ice treats that give them their name are freshly squeezed juices, chili-imbued slush-drinks, and healthy fruit salads. But the raspados remain the main event. Flavors include exotic fruit such as guava, tamarind, kiwi, and jamaica, as well as more decadent flavors such as caramel, egg nog, cookies and cream, and plain water.
Marika.com’s activewear uses high-tech fabrics to slim physiques comfortably and stylishly. The Miracle line, for instance, features the two-way stretch of Elasta-Tight, whereas the Magic line contours silhouettes via a cotton-spandex mesh blend, which lifts the butt more effectively than tethering it to an eagle. Since 1982, the shop has outfitted athletes with workout gear in an array of contouring and moisture-wicking fabrics, offering everything from sports bras and tanks to shorts and sweats.
