L E T T E R F R O M T H E S TA F F

Hello March! March is already upon us and it couldn’t come fast enough. I’m so ready for spring to be here. While I love all the seasons Oklahoma gives us, I’ve had my fill of cold weather, naked trees and dead grass. I can’t wait for those spring thunderstorms and heavy rains. It seems like overnight the grass turns green, trees fill out, and flowers are in full bloom. I’ve already made my list of spring activities and adventures, ranging from morning tee times to evening bike rides. And I will not be missing out on patio season. I have my usual list of local beer and food joints with great patios I will be visiting, as well as a couple new ones to try out this spring. What’s on your list?

where to find each item. So be sure to save the page with the items you want and call ahead to reserve them. We hope this helps you spruce up your spring wardrobe while supporting local businesses.

March also brings something else with it: spring fashions. In this March Spring Fashion Issue, we proudly show off clothing and products that are all from local stores here in OKC. So6ix has an immense passion for working with small local businesses, and we feature stores and boutiques you might not have known about or haven’t had a chance to visit yet. As you browse through the issue, you will find all locally sold products in our Spring Fashion Must-Haves and the outfits worn by our models, with descriptions of

Enjoy the new season, enjoy the new issue, and enjoy them both in our great city!

Also, I want to congratulate our beautiful models (who happen to be a great couple) in this issue. They submitted their photos in our contest to be featured. They were a pleasure to work with and did a fantastic job. Make sure to follow So6ix on Instagram (@So6ixMag) to catch the next opportunity to be featured in the magazine.

Thank you,

box THE BFashion R E Subscription A K D O Boxes WN There are so many ways to dive into the fashion world these days: apps, brick-and-mortar stores, popup shops, and now fashion subscription boxes. There’s an abundance of subscription boxes you can purchase, with a wide variety of products: food, sports, makeup, books, alcohol and even fashion. You get a box shipped right to your door, typically monthly, filled with goodies. You don’t have to go out shopping ever again if you don’t want to. In this section, we’re breaking down some of our favorite fashion subscription box options that we think you’re going to want to get your hands on ASAP.


WOMEN'S FASHION BOXES

Le Tote letote.com

$59 per month

Rocksbox rocksbox.com

$21 per month

Le Tote wants to help you find your style. You give them a little insight into your likes, dislikes and personality, and they try to match you with fashion you might love. The “tote” comes with three clothing pieces and two accessories from Le Tote’s inventory. Try them on and wear them out with the girls. Wear it all 4 times or just once – when you’re done, just ship the stuff back. You can ship it all back or purchase the pieces you want to keep. You can get unlimited deliveries every month, so don’t feel like you have to wait for a new one each month. Bonus: if you purchase your whole tote, you get one month free!

This one is for the jewelry lovers. Whether space is a problem for you, you get tired of the same accessories all the time or you don’t have the money for designer baubles – this one is for you. Create your profile, add items into your wish list and you’ll be mailed 3 special pieces. You can wear them for as long as you’d like – just send them back when you don’t need or want them anymore. You can get an unlimited number of boxes each month, but you can only borrow 3 pieces at any given time.


Stitch Fix stitchfix.com

$20 personal styling fee

Stitch Fix gives you your own personal stylist! With a little bit of info, a personal stylist will choose 5 different pieces to match you and ship them your way. You get 3 days to try it all out and decide what you want to keep or send back. Don’t be afraid to give detailed feedback – it helps your stylist for the next box. The $20 styling fee for every box can go toward any item(s) you decide to purchase. Bonus: shipping is free both ways.

Bandit

thebanditshop.com

$77-$112 per box Did you know that 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra? Not to mention the number of women wearing worn-out and outdated bras. Bandit wants your ladies to be comfortable AND look good. You don’t ever have to go through the awkward and trying process at the mall ever again – these bras are delivered straight to your door in the correct size. You can choose 2 bras every 12 months, 6 months or 4 months. Bonus: free shipping and free size exchanges. High-end, high-quality bras at a discount sounds like a win-win to us.


WOMEN'S FASHION BOXES BootayBag bootaybag.com

$12 per month Ditch the old panties, ladies, and hook yourself up with 2 new styles every month. Don’t worry, they won’t ever surprise you with granny panties. You just pick by your size and what style you’re wanting. This is your cue to clean out the old underwear drawer and make way for the new.

Golden Tote goldentote.com

$49 for small, $149 for large Mondays just got a whole lot better with Golden Tote. On the first Monday of every month, you can choose to receive either the small or large size tote. Small comes with 2-3 pieces of clothing and large comes with 5-6 pieces. All you have to do is select a few pieces you LOVE on their website, and they surprise you with the rest. Plus, now you have an extra-cute tote bag for nights away or the gym.


WOMEN'S FASHION BOXES Material World materialworld.co

Each box comes with 5 items and you have 4 days to keep what you love and return what you don’t. Shipping is on them!

Rent the Runway renttherunway.com

$159 per month

PUPPY OF THE MONTH Meet BRUNO! OWNER: VENUS & NASH

This rambunctious and energetic puppy is equal parts Rottweiler and cattle dog. He’s nine months old and has no shortage of love. Bruno is a rescue pup, and he is so thankful for his second chance at life. He likes to show his gratefulness with his prolevel snuggling capabilities. Bruno has a taste for the finer things in life, like leather shoes and clutches as chew toys (with an occasional chew stick that belongs to his big bro, Ceezar). Even though he loves his humans, he’s an independent guy – he loves to take himself on walks with his leash in his mouth. Bruno fancies a good Sunday afternoon nap on plush pillows just as much as he loves prancing around town. If you see him out, say hi! Want your puppy to be entered for our local puppy of the month?

EATS Neighborhood JA.M. is the newest brunch spot in town, and it’s so good, it’s going to make you want to put all your eggs in one basket. We believe breakfast and brunch are probably the most important meal of the day, but also the tastiest. Neighborhood JA.M. is serving classics with a twist, as well as a ton of their own creative creations that will probably become your new favorites. When you walk in, the first thing you’ll notice is the sunshiny décor: it’s bright, airy and chic. Grab a cup of coffee if you have to wait, or beat the crowd with the fantastic NoWait app from Yelp. Each day Neighborhood JA.M. makes everything from scratch with the freshest of ingredients. Even if you’re a creature of habit, we highly recommend trying something new every time you come here – you’ll be glad you did. Neighborhood JA.M. is more than just omelets and hash browns, and there is too much greatness on this menu to leave anything untasted. If you’re feeling sweet, pineapple bourbon cakes are the way to go. Caramelized pineapple bourbon sauce with bourbon butter? Yes, please! If you’re into a little bit of spice and a whole lot of flavor, El Jefe is a local favorite around here. That green chile hollandaise is heaven. If you’re watching your figure, don’t worry: they have great-for-you options like an acai bowl and a quinoa power bowl to help fuel you through your day, and yes, they’re equally as delicious. (Good luck saying no to their pancakes, though.) While the food is the star of the show, we can’t ignore their impressive handcrafted cocktails and bar options. With choices like fresh-squeezed juices, a specialty “seed-to-cup” coffee with local partner Topeca Roastery, and a bacon habanero–infused Bloody Mary, the list is incredibly impressive. They’re putting more effort and expertise into brunch cocktails than most. Neighborhood JA.M. is extremely diet/food allergy friendly and has gluten-free options, so don’t be afraid to ask your waiter or share your dietary needs. Our friends in Norman are about to be jammin’ too: the newest Neighborhood JA.M. is set to open in Norman at the end of May. The Oklahoma City location is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and in the evenings they rent out their space for events or rehearsal dinners. How cool is that? If you can’t tell, we’re a little (okay, a lot) obsessed with this spot. You can say that Neighborhood JA.M. is definitely our jam. 52

Wagyu Japanese BBQ is the first of its kind here in Oklahoma City. It is a dining experience unlike any other. In Japanese, Yakiniku translates to “grilled meat,” and this is the style of BBQ that you’ll experience here. There are authentic Japanese grills at the center of each table. You’ll choose your meats, seafood or veggies, and the experience begins. After a quick introduction, they set you up with sauces and marinades crafted in-house, and then you begin cooking your meal right there at the table, to your own liking! It’s a fun experience for the whole family. They offer both lunch and dinner options. Even though the grill is the star of the show, you can’t miss out on their rice dishes in a sizzling hot stone pot, or their traditional Japanese ramen dishes. We have a feeling you’re going to love this spot.

Chile Pepper Café is one of the newest locally owned and operated restaurants in Edmond, and they’re whipping up a delicious cross between Mexican food and Southwest cuisine. They’re not putting rules or limits on what they do, and they’re striving to put out fantastic, diverse cuisine from the great melting pot of the cultures in the Southwest. To start off your experience, you’ll find all the greats like chips and guac and homemade queso blanco, but you also can’t pass up their broiled stuffed jalapeños and Texas fries. Many of their dishes include roasted green chiles in some form, and we’re excited about this. All of their sauces are made in-house, including the ones on their meats, like the smoked chopped chipotle brisket or green chile pork. This spot promises a lot of flair and a whole lot of flavor.

If you’ve watched the hit show “Shark Tank” on ABC, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Tom + Chee. This popular restaurant, deemed “best new sandwich” by the Today Show, has finally found a home in OKC! They’re mixing classic comfort food with fresh ingredients, healthy alternatives and a flair for the unexpected. You’ll find a little bit of everything from classics to crazy on the menu, but they all share the same ingredient: cheese. If you’re feeling adventurous, go for the infamous grilled cheese donut – yes, a donut! You can build your own sandwich or opt for one of their creations like the Flying Cow, Grilled Mac + Chee, or Pesto Turkey. Whatever you do, we highly recommend you dip your sandwich in their tomato soup. Seriously. For those who need it, they offer gluten-free bread, vegan cheese, vegetarian soups and some nut-free options.

With four locations, it’s no secret that Tucker’s is an Oklahoma favorite. Tucker’s is whipping up the classics with a simple menu that doesn’t skimp on flavor. It’s a place meant to feel like an old diner with good ol’ onion burgers, but it also has its own modern flair. They’re using the freshest of ingredients, and you can taste the quality in each bite. Even though their burgers are the star of the show, the fresh hand-cut fries deserve some recognition, too. And of course we can’t leave out their handdipped shakes, prepared the old-fashioned way. They come out so rich and creamy, it’s almost not fair how good they are. Sit at the counter, grab a table with friends or hang with your pup on the patio. Whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong with an old-fashioned onion burger.

They provide daily access to children in character and leadership, education and career development, health and life skills, the arts, and sports, fitness, and recreation. Crime rates have plummeted within a 3-mile radius of the club since it opened, with kids choosing better paths and making smarter decisions after school. It’s a safe, positive and fun environment for the youths of our city. Membership costs $10 or less per year, per child.
