Happy Chinese New Year!!


Some associate the year 2012 with doomsday predictions (and movies with brilliant marketing strategies), but this actually may be your lucky year! According to the The Shēngxiào, as of today, we have just entered the year of the DRAGON which is thought to be the luckiest year in the Chinese Zodiac. The Dragon is highly revered within Chinese culture, and is seen as a symbol of power. There have been reports of women strategically planning their pregnancies so that they might have children born during the year of the dragon (January 23 to February 9th, 2013) in hopes that they will posses the qualities that identify with the sign.
In the spirit of this festive changeover from Rabbit to Dragon, Jason of Beverly Hills has created these limited edition Dragon earrings (seen above). Who knows, they might give you good luck! Info@Jasonofbh.com ~vk

Wiki Search: DIAMONDS

I tried to wiki "DIAMONDS" today just to see what would happen, and the image above was the result. 

The talk of the day has been the beef with the "Stop Online Piracy Act". SOPA as well as PIPA, or "Protect Intellectual Property Act" are bills that are supposed to help put a stop copyright infringement, but sites such as Wikipedia and Google are crying foul. They believe that the bills will ultimately infringe on free expression, in addition to preventing people to freely access information online. With a 24 hour protest that has made news around the globe, a number of large online sites have "blacked out". They are collectively providing only limited access for one day to promote awareness to the flaws in these bills, showing the masses just how it would feel if we had to take a step back into the "dark ages".
See for yourself, you can go to Wikipedia.org for more information.

Could you imaging a world with a restricted internet? ~vK

It's almost impossible not to nod your head along with the DJ over your meal in their sexy club-like atmosphere.

Dots, On Dots, On Dots: Damien Hirst Exhibit

Explaining to a friend why I would spend my evening staring at dots is a bit challenging. 
"They're *bleeping* dots, what's the big deal?"
I was at a loss. At the time, all I knew about the famous "Spot Paintings" by Damien Hirst was exactly that. They were just effin dots. In some cases, million dollar dots. I rushed over to the Gagosian Gallery to investigate. I needed to find out what was so special about these paintings and why on earth anyone would spend fortunes on something that you can't drive, wear or experience. Even as a Hirst fan, I needed to be able to answer with something more substantial than "it's ART".

Follow the dots inside to see more from my night at the museum for the opening of the "Complete Spot Paintings Collection 1986-2011".

Red bottoms?

Jason Arasheben- CEO Jason of Beverly Hills
I pose a question to consumers of luxury goods. Which is more important: knowing the value of what you purchase, or knowing that everyone else knows you have expensive taste?  Can someone please explain to me this "red sole" epidemic that is spreading wildly across pop culture? For you cave dwellers among the far reaches of the Cambodian jungle, the red soles I speak from that of shoe designer Christian Louboutin, not to be confused with Christian Audigier. 
(or is it?)

At first glance the shoes are absolutely stunning in appearance with their vicious curves and scarlet soles, not to mention, they are made with the finest materials on earth. But ask even the most loyal buyer and they'll admit that "walking in a pair of Loubs feels like walking across barefoot across a junkyard littered with nails". Just ask my wife who has her podiatrist on speed dial.

But to most, at the end of the day, it's allllllll worth it. Why? Because all of their friends will recognize the infamous red bottoms, even tho they're probably walking away with just barely enough change to keep the parking meter valid for another 12 minutes. 
Wear shoes that make you feel good for you, not for others. With or without the red soles.

Now where do I go to buy those shoes for myself? I heard that the black leather spike men shoes are awesome !!!!! -JA

Birthstone: January GARNET

We're going to start of the year with a bit of re-educating on Birthstones. We all have one, and according to some traditions, our birthstones represent specific traits that we each posses according to where our birthday falls in the calendar year.
Now I know we all wish that we were born under the month that corresponds with diamonds (hey there April babies) but for now, we'll start with Garnets.

A Clear Canvas

Jason Arasheben- CEO Jason of Beverly Hills
In approximately 6 weeks, we will be opening our second Jason of Beverly Hills boutique at the historic Beverly Wilshire Hotel at the head of Rodeo Drive! 
We've completely gutted out the space, and as of today we are left with nothing but an empty shell; a clear canvas that's desperately in need of the talents and creativity of its artist. 
I'll be keeping you posted as it begins to take shape. 
Here we go!!! -JA
