City Rat Film



So excited to finally share our project with Nightmare Daydream from last May. It is finally fully edited and out! Featuring actress and model Taylor Lashae and clothing line Nightmare Daydream. We started planning this project nearly two months before shooting. Planning out the story line and what the scenes should be. From there we searched for fun costumes and outfits to make the scenes come alive. We’re thrilled with the final cut. And would love for you guys to see what we’ve come up with.

Style Festival with Refinery 29 & Simon Malls



We were invited to display a pop up shop during Style Festival, hosted by Refinery 29 & Simon Malls. This Summer 2015 Refinery 29 and Simon Malls will embark on a six-city nationwide indie boutique and designer tour that will take the in-store retail experience into a festival like setting. “Style Festival” takes its inspiration from music festival culture that has become a millennial rite of passage. Festival-goers will have the unique opportunity to discover emerging musical artists from top headlining acts to djays. The category we represented this season was “Fringed Benefits.” We spent weeks preparing for our event only purchasing fringe vintage pieces in order to stock up for our pop up at Brea Mall. Friends & Fans stopped by, shopped, partook in an awesome DIY station for making band tour shirts, got free summer braided hairdos and metallic tattoos on the go. Had an absolute blast! Here are some behind the scene shots from the event.

Diy Bowie Brick Bookends



The other day our Assistant Art Director, Tali sent us a new project to post.  Looking for something creative to hold your books? What about these glitter painted brick book ends? Here’s how=)

IMG_7204

Supplies You’ll Need!!

  • painters tape
  • bricks (number depends on how many bookends you need)
  • krylon Glitter Spray Paint
  • newspaper

Brush residue off your bricks. Using painters tape, map out the triangle you want to paint. Making sure to cover the sides as well.

Lay down your newspaper in a well ventilated area (far away from anything you don’t want covered in glitter). Follow directions on the spray paint can, shake vigorously for two minutes before spraying.

IMG_7184

Staying 10-12 inches away from your bricks, make slow, sweeping motions across. Make 2-3 thin coats with time to dry in between layers work better than one heavy coat.

After paint is dry, peel off the painters tape. You can spray a fixative layer over the glitter (or use an aerosol hairspray!) to set the glitter paint.

Let dry for 24 hours so fumes can wear off before putting them on your shelf.

Spring Starlet 2015



Our spring Look book takes us wandering around the streets of LA. A dreamland of luscious suburban trees mixed in with towering palm trees that overlook  the city.  In February it already feels like spring. Giving us an enthusiasm to hike around this city in 80 degree weather?! We ventured out to some historical spots like the Hollywood Tower tucked in between Franklin Village. From there, we scoured the streets taking snapshots of anything that could capture the moment. In our mission to find the perfect, scenic moment, We spot an adorable 1960’s, baby blue chevy nova. Capturing the spirit of LA and remembering it’s roots. It was a fine eventful day, filled with adventure and Sunshine.

Don’t Fret my Pets! DIY Bear Cat Planters Finally



Are you heading to a housewarming party empty handed? eeeeeks! Are you on a budget because your broke? Arghh! Then you probably spent all your money on thrifting frivolously, and record shopping all the sweet deals from Long Beach To Oxnard. If you answered yes to any one of these. Don’t fret my pet! Here’s a little DIY for you! We couldn’t stop looking at all the adorable recycled DIY planters on pinterest so we decided to make a tutorial of our own! For this DIY we decided to make a bear and a cat to celebrate the shop this spring! Let us help you come up with fun DIY gift ideas so you don’t come empty handed.

Supplies you’ll Need

1. old paint brushes you may have lying around the house stashed somewhere in your arts and craft box, paint pen for fine details.

4. ruler

5. measuring tape

6. recycled water bottles

7.  some cute plants you want to save.

First step is to make your bear and cat stencils. Determine how tall you want your planter to be and make a line across the paper to mark the height. Ours were four inches tall with one inch ears. We liked our ears to be 1.5 inches apart with a curved line connecting them to form the top of their heads. Our cat ears were little triangles separated by a curve. Our bear ears were round. After you’ve drawn your stencil, cut them out

Place your stencils on your bottles and tape them down.

DSC_5873

Cut the tops of the bottles off with sharp scissors leaving a generous amount of room above the height of your plant. Cut down to your stencil and begin to cut out the ears.

DSC_5875

take the stencils off and paint the entire planter white. Let dry.

Now the fun part! Paint your bear and cat how ever you wish! We painted our cat and bear with another layer of white for optimal cuteness.  Add little eyes, noses and whiskers with a pencil and then go over it with a paint pen. We mixed up a little bit of pink paint for noses and ears and cheek. Poke a few holes in the bottom for drainage. Plant your little plants and voila! Your cute little Bear Cat planters are now the perfect little duo to cheer up your space. Or give as a housewarming gift.

thanks for reading!

hearts and kisses always…. Remember to be nifty stay thrifty.

Nola Spring Lookbook



We spent the weekend shooting our model Sarah Christine with makeup artist Rockey in the lovely French Quarters of New Orleans, Louisiana! Obviously one of the world’s most fascinating cities. It was a great mix of history and urban decadence. Vibrant colors with gorgeous structures. It was the perfect backdrop for our vintage finds. Here are some wonderful shots we took. (All clothing will be available on our site coming soon!) Stay tuned.

Jennifer Lawrence for Vogue UK – 70s Babe



This adorable 70s inspired shoot isn’t trashy to say the least. The photography concept, color, and simply styled vintage pieces are subtle yet makes for a good fashion flash back photograph. Though there is a hint of 70s/80s trashy-trailer vibe, that’s what we loved about it. Maybe not a usual kind of shoot for a celebrity or Vogue issue, it was a relief to see something different. Found this little editorial posted on Celebitchy where you might want to read more about the article as other opinions that may arise. In the interview Jennifer Lawrence is raw and uncut, and doesn’t hold back. “JLaw speaks “without much of a filter and naturally leans towards the profane.” Unlike Kristen Stewart, who seems to do it to sound like a rebel.”
