LA fashion weak-end?

this past weekend has been quite the eventful one and a pleasant reminder that spring is here in LA... warm nights, hot days, loads of ice cream, DJ's in the daytime, short shorts and tempting thoughts of chopping my stifling long hair off.  Friday we went to one of the few remaining LA fashion week events at BoxEight.  It was an interesting concept of showcasing a "behind the scenes" photo shoot instead of a runway show.  Although I appreciate the creativity, I prefer to bring the actual runway shows back to LA and make the focus on the clothes and not the hype around it.

yes, i actually have a dinosaur tattooed on my wrist
stylist Michael Holdaway and I
out of control
 
after we hit up this koreatown spot where they served this super weird milky liquor mixed with sprite and skewers of yummy unidentifiable things!
Saturday was the Joyrich warehouse sale where UNIF was selling too.  For those of you who don't know, UNIF is our other brand. Check us out here!!
Eric destroyed it on the turntable!!!!!
his shirt says "happiness is gang bangin"  the graphic says it all actually.
Olivia came by the sale to pick up some UNIF.  If you don't know her already you must have been asleep in the blog world because at 17 she is aammmaaazzing.  She's so cute and sweet I can't help but want to shower her with gifts!

Sunday we strolled the Long beach flea market and found some interesting things....
rosaries galore
airbrushed horse vest
rabbit fur vest (which i bought!!)
Eric and I came seriously close to buying this raunchy frame filled with 90's porn stars.  After lamenting all afternoon about it, I think we will purchase it if we see it next time!
this will be me in 40 years!
this pegasus/crystal ball statue is now in my life
i bought a vintage Versace backpack! 
mesh tee-vintage
sunglasses-linda farrow x alexander wang
striped shorts-hong kong
plaid shirt-copula
white docs-vintage
turquoise inlaid ring-vintage (bought it today!)

  8. Oh gross I was sweating so hard that day! And I completely agreeeeeeeee I went to the last Box 8 fashion behind the scenes whatever and it was aesthetically pleasing but...a bit boring as far as fashion "shows" go. The sale was super funnnnnnn and the rabbit fur vest is pure gold
