Miss American Pie

 The Wildfox new Holiday/resort 2010 photo shoot and ad campaign is as American as Apple pie and as LA as you can get. Check it out here! You will love it, I'm sure. Who cares if the model is Aussie to me that's true Americana a melting and blending of cultures.
 Marilyn Monroe at Santa Monica beach shot by George Barris in the weeks between June and July of 1962. A true American sex symbol.
"We were singing, bye-bye Miss American Pie"
 Some time way back in the 70's a man in advertising coined the phrase "Baseball, Hot dogs, Apple pie and Chevrolet."
That was America! 
Well, I don't eat hot dogs, I think Baseball is a very boring sport to watch although maybe fun to play at some good old fashion work picnic, as for Apple pie, I'd rather have ice cream. And on top of all that I don't drive a Chevy. 
So what's American now?

For me it's just simply being with family, friends, hitting the beach or just your very own your backyard to chill, cooking out and drinking a good old Mexican beer with lime please or maybe a margarita.
Our beaches are crazy with people from all over this weekend spanning every culture and race. But, every year we head down to the masses of happy people to celebrate no matter what the weather brings. Then end the day with Fireworks on the beach.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend full of sunshine, cookouts, ice cream and fun.

Happy fourth of July!

Great post! Loving that new Wildfox lookbook. And I spy at least two Aussies in this post ;) As one myself, I can say that I do appreciate a good dose of Americana every once in a while.
