Detroit may still be known as the Motor City, but with Motown's recent surge of design and doing, it’s moving towards being dubbed the Maker City. You may be hearing about the City of Design, and the trending of #detroit––with Windsor's publicity riding on Detroit's up-and-comer tailcoats.

Now that Detroit’s got the name, what about dressing the part?

Never heard of the Detroit fashion scene? Yeah, it’s kinda super underground...so, totally in style. But, it’s fashion––it’s made to be shown off. Though lacking in any major retail stores (thus far), Detroit has its very own street style scene in social media...a trend you should definitely jump on. (And you can say you were already there...back when there was only one Detroit fashion spread featured in W.)


Here are eight of the brightest blogger’s in the clothes-centric scene:

Board Games Are More Important Than You Think They Are

They've become a defining part of my family.

719

Remember when you were a kid and you'd have a family game night? Or your friends would come over and you'd open the game cabinet and play at least three different games together?

Maybe it's just me, but those are some of my best memories from my childhood. My family loves games, board games, and electronic games.

Of course, as I got older, gaming consoles like PlayStation and Wii became more and more popular. That meant that the game cabinet was opened less and less, collecting dust.

Thankfully, I live in New Jersey near the shore and Hurricane Sandy left my family with no power for five days. Sure, it was scary not having power and walking around my neighborhood seeing fallen trees or roof shingles, but we were inland enough to not have had any flood water damage.

No power also meant no PlayStation or Wii games. The gaming cabinet was opened again, this time with vigor. Now, four years later, and I still think about sitting in the dark with a flashlight playing Scrabble with my family.

That was also the week I learned how to play Yahtzee and dominated my dad in every game. My sister constantly was looking for someone to play her to Battleship. We exhausted Rummikub.

The game was already a family favorite, and that's including extended family. Family barbeques had been ending with late night games of Rummikub for at least a year by the time Sandy hit.

We were ready to strategize and crunch numbers, but after day three, we never wanted to a number ever again.

This semester, there's been a surge of board game love again in my family. My sister bought Jenga, which we are currently trying to exhaust ourselves with. My favorite board game also had a comeback: Life.

I loved this game so much that I had the SpongeBob version as a kid. I would play it with my best friend, just the two of us, playing game after game of Bikini Bottom themed Life. Now, I have a car full of "kids" that I've started to make pets in my head. I can handle having five pretend dogs, but not five pretend kids.

I don't know what it is about board games, but my family has always had an affinity for them. We've gone through our cycles of playing video games and card games, but we always come back to the classics. Maybe it's more a defining part of my family than I originally thought.
