Happy Birthday to Ian M Crumm, whose dreams are being heard.

Met this kid at age 19 who had a vision, talent and a drive. Fast forward a few years and he’s hosting events, where Actress Alysia Reiner, her husband, David Alan Basche, and her producing partner, Sarah Megan Thomas attended. The three are currently wrapping up the movie “Equity” which they filmed here this past summer. (Out and About)

Hotel Palomar celebrated the launch of the second Shop Like A Local Guide
in partnership with style expert, Ian Michael Crumm. The hotel works
with Ian to create a hyper-local shopping guide for guests, which lives
on the hotel’s website and also in a purse-sized booklet (as seen
below). It highlights stores with items popular with travelers like a
casual day dress or a pair of men’s dress shoes. The guide focuses on
items often left at home, but needed when traveling to another city. 



 

After
Hotel Palomar’s Carolina Pino welcomed Ian to the stage to explain the
vision of this year’s guide, R&B sensation Miesa performed a few
numbers. Miesa kicked-off her multi-city “Suite Tour” with Kimpton
Hotels at the event delighting guests with songs from her debut album.

Crumm, an Instagram maven named one of “11 Philadelphia   Instagrams to Follow” by Philadelphia Style magazine, is a noted lifestyle blogger who also lends his prowess as a   contributing columnist to EDGE, Philly.com and the Details network. The Shop Like A Local Guide, Vol. II features   looks curated and styled by Crumm, stylish pairings he hand-selected from local retailers, salons, and boutiques.   Hotel Palomar’s art deco  design direction.

 “When travelers stay with us, they are usually only here for a short period of time so we really want for them to   experience the best of what the city has to offer during their visit,” said Mark Hayes, General Manager of Hotel   Palomar Philadelphia. “Kimpton Hotels are recognized for their true local know-how, and our Shop Like A Local   Guide delivers on again, from one of the most trusted local sources in fashion and style.” All of the featured stores  are realistically located within walking distance of the hotel, making the guide not only beautiful but also useful   and accessible.”

Congrats and Happy Birthday Ian on all your success. This was one of the first shots I took of Ian; it was Philadelphia Phasion Phest in Sept 2013 at Shops of Liberty Place. No wonder he’s so stylish, check out his mom in this photo with him. Follow Ian on his instagram to check out the latest in styles and buys he recommends 

It’s a super important organization, and I’d really appreciate if you were there. 

Actress Alysia Reiner touted girl power Wednesday night at a party for a new local shopping guide from Kimpton Hotels. Reiner, her husband, David Alan Basche, and her producing partner, Sarah Megan Thomas, were fawned over at the Shop Like a Local Retail & Style Guide Vol. II release celebration at Hotel Palomar (117 S. 17th St.), a Kimpton hotel.
Put together by local style blogger Ian Michael Crumm, the guide recommends retailers mostly in the Rittenhouse Square area. Reiner had our local guy Colin Shebby, of Giovanni and Pileggi, style her hair for the event.
You’ve seen Reiner in Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” the ABC crime series “How to Get Away with Murder” and the 2004 film “Sideways.”
