Fashion's infatuation with gold reminds us of the 1970s disco look and the dress-up 1980s.

In 1993, Huntington Beach native Paul Frank decided to jazz up a pair of Jack Purcells sneakers by stitching on some vinyl stripes he got from an auto upholstery shop. But the shoes didn't fit through his sewing machine--duh!--so Frank refashioned the vinyl into gift key chains, wallets and a purse. Inspired by a sock monkey his grandmother had made for him, Frank came up with a lovable cartoon primate with a wide red mouth, named Julius, to adorn his accessories.

Tees and totes are a hot duo on L.A. streets these days. Whether they are fringed, beaded, printed, or rhinestoned, the season's colorful T-shirts and diminutive bags reflect the carefree abandon of L.A.'s dress-to-dazzle style and transcend fashion's time zones. The totes, with their petite proportions and glittery details, are both a daytime and a nighttime accessory. Same with embellished T-shirts that can complete an office-worthy suit or stand alone over a pair of sleek pants for dinner.
