Trotting around Downtown Santa Ana. This is the day we first scoped out the spot for our new studio/store! We're currently setting up, but we've got a grand opening day of the Art Walk on May 4, so save the date. Details to come. All you OC kids better make it out. ~I see you~

Looking back on these photos, the complementary flowers in the background was an accident but totally worked in my favor. I especially love this hand knit crop top by Pima Doll because it's constructed entirely from recycled jersey and made by a community of women in Peru. You can read about the amazing story here. I finished off the look with Tarte's new rings.

PS. Signed an important contract today.. HUGE news coming soon!

MAGIC MARKET WEEK

 
Last season in August was my first time at MAGIC Market Week and I had the amazing opportunity of being a Social Media Digital Influencer and official blogz0r/panelist. This season, dat boyy and I attended as buyers to get only the most awesome shit for the store. (I backspaced and retyped 'shit' three times before deciding it's mah bl0g and I do what I want.) The week spent in Sin City was absolutely more work than play, but I'm OK with work when it means shopping.
 
Packing in my room... Chris said this wasn't as funny as I thought it was. *Shrugs*

Met up with this season's bloggers at the BGBGeneration VIP Sky Box Lounge, complete with open bar, manis, and DIY affirmation bracelets. I chose Tarte, appropriately.

Pit stop on the way home at Peggy Sue's 50's Diner. Unfortunately the decor was the only impressive thing about the spot.
