- I really LOVE this boutiques! LF Store is located in Laguna Beach on Forest drive. I like that the store has an urban out door look and feel to it  with the old hard wood floors and other antic furniture you fine in the store used as a display. You know when you step into the store your going to fine a unique item. The only dislike about the store is that the prices are a bit high but when you out looking for that one of a kind piece this is where you will find it.
-The trends that were in the store are more of a effortless look, not to polished look. The Native American trend some what of a drifter. the clothing along with the web site tells a store about there customer.An out door look and feel to the clothing. Neutrals, earth tones, along with some bright colors as well.
-The sweaters have been very popular, leggings and sheer blouses.
-This store is a good example for trendsetters because it has all the trends that are not out yet  so only  trendsetters would pick it up first.

Mega Trends

  Mega trends help products sell more because the trend conutines to make the consumer buy which can last up to five years.Which allso keeps the companys selling and creates more jobs because outher businesses pick up the product.
The current trend I see that is currently affecting the culture and the fashion industry is the Army trend. The United States has been  dealing with the war for over 7 years now! All genrations can realate to now which makes it even more import for us to incorprate it in to our clothing. Weather it be the American colors, Army structered jacket, pants, some way some how some designer has taken that part of history and put it into our life.
