Prior to my week in Vegas for MAGIC, my friends and I visited earlier in the month with more leisurely motives. Our quick trip was filled with major shopping, blurry nights, pool dips, and a complete air band performance in the back seat by Mory, Bambi, and me.

(PS. ALL VINTAGE on the store has now been marked down 50-75% off! Shop Tarte here.)

Vegan Leather Shorts c/o Lucca Couture, Acne Shining Button Down, Chloe Square Toe Ballet Flats, vintage Dior bag

The order of my MAGIC posts may be a bit fleeting, but I assure you there's a method to my madness. This is what I wore for the behind-the-scenes tour of MAGIC and all its... magic, one day before the official opening. I paired the preforated PU leather shorts I received in my influencer gift pack by Lucca Couture with my go-to classics by Acne and Chloe. Next up: inside the show.

You know a post is old when your hair color isn't even the same anymore. These photos are from Born Free, an awesome motorcycle show and all around culture festival. Met up Brittany before chasing down Blake Anderson, my favorite Workaholics protagonist. At any rate, Friday night isn't the best time to post as I'm currently being nudged indefinitely to hurry up with my post (I hate doing drafts because they make me feel uninspired), but I was really unnerved to see photos piling up after coming back from my Vegas trip.

I'm back from an amazing week in Las Vegas with the Magic Influencers (aka amazing group of bloggers) for MAGIC Tradeshow. I still need to unearth my camera and camera cord from beneath all my trip belongings and not to mention everything I've moved from my former condo in Long Beach that is now all conveniently crammed into my bedroom. That being said, here is an instant-film preview of our night life activities--I assigned the DSLR for day and polaroid by night. (PS I actually won the Instax camera on the blogger bus en route to Vegas during Rue La La's fashion trivia challenge... thank you infinitely!)

Here's the breakdown for those so inclined~
1; Welcome party with cocktails and monster-size "appetizers" at the Peppermill fire pit. It screamed "Fear and Loathing."
2; My first time ever playing a slot machine. On the Husky machine, of course.
3; Backless buddies with Anosha after our private dinner (amazing) at Chicago Joe's, just before the Joy Rich x Vice magazine party.
4; The limo ride to the private All Saints x Magic party at the Cosmopolitan. Chanel's flexibility left me speechless. (Yes, that's a leg perpendicular to the limo ceiling)
5 & 6; Olivia, Kristine, and I enjoying catered h'orderves and champagne.
7; Horribly candid Stephanie and I just arriving upstairs to the Chandelier Room for drinks courtesy of All Saints, following a Disney musical in the back of the cab starring Kelsi.

Okay enough banter! Official posts coming soon.

MAGIC TRADESHOW WEEK


Faithful readers, I have not forgotten about you! I'm currently participating in Magic Tradeshow in Vegas as a Digital Influencer, panelist, and guest blogger for Magic's blog (although they're more like quick blurbs). I'll be here until Thursday, when I'll do my best to post a photo diary of all my favorite booths and social panel recaps. Until then, you can follow me on instagram @joellenlove for live updates.

BUSY BEE

Okay, I know summer should be relaxing and a great time to blog the days away, but between moving out (but keeping enough in tact for a bedroom feature), having the store's packer/shipper on vacation, and mini road trips back-to-back, preoccupied might be an understatement. Not to mention clawing after classes at the uni like tigers over some steak. Gross analogy but probably the most fitting. At any rate, more updates to come, more vintage on the store, and a HUGE back to school sale. Ta ta!

I just got back from a trip to Las Vegas and have got a lot on my plate, but I refuse to let more than a week go by without a post. I love these shorts that we put up on the store because of the Zara/Alexander Wang-esque studs speckled across the front panel. I can just imagine how many other seemingly plain outfits for which these shorts could act as a catalyst.

I FOUND GOLD

Some time last month I had the pleasure of helping my friend Bambi out with her runway show for her line "I Found Gold," which I ended up absolutely loving. Her pieces undoubtedly took the cake that afternoon. Each design had its own unique distinction and silhouette, and all together assimilated cohesively to fit the collection's name perfectly. I recall dreading taking off my outfit, which included a boxy mesh crop top dotted with tiny crosses and completed with a pleather Peter Pan collar, and a scalloped vinyl skirt layered over a tulle petticoat for support. Too good.
