Now that I am on the hunt for the perfect Los Angeles neighborhood to relocate to come summertime, I am always finding a way to adventure to a new part of town. On Monday, Proxart was hosting a issue release gathering for their 8th issue at Origami Vinyl in Echo Park. As one of my favorite groups in LA, I definitely enjoy hanging out with the Proxart folks. (So much so, I am especially impressed to say that I went to high school with these cool kids and have seen the group transform to the powerful creative community it is today) I brought along good company and enjoyed canned beers and live music by Atlanta-based folk rockers Little Tybee. Just off West Sunset, Origami Vinyl is a teeny shop and record-lovers music box haven. From Johnny Cash to The Black Keyes, I got my browse on and even picked up one for myself. After Little Tybee, I got to chat with the violinist in the group, Nirvana Kelly. (How could it be folk rock without?!) She was incredibly down to earth (and extremely talented--so rare!) about living in Atlanta, SXSW and the band’s road trip through the West Coast. The evening was finished with some delicious Thai drunken noodles at It’s Thai, needless to say it was just what I needed to compliment my earlier musically delicious feast for the ears.
This Sunday was a fun day spent at the Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market. Killer Styling took on Los Angeles in an early morning trip to the monthly second Tuesday swap meet held at the Rose Bowl, selling our vintage goodies and kicking off the new Killer Gent's line. Tired and true by the end of the day, Nycole and I got a ton of positive feedback, sold quite a few pieces and many dresses found their rightful owner. (Including a few of my favorites!) What started out as an overcast AM, warmed up to a killer 72 with plenty of so cal sunshine. Not only was the fashion outrageous, Los Angeleno shoppers were in it to win it fashion wise. Take a look at some of the fab finds!
HELLO OLD TOWN PASADENA!

Bitch. Babe. Female. Her. Tramp. Daughter. Slut. She. Cunt. Whore. Beautiful. Mother. Tease. Woman. Sister. Lover.
However you recognized National Women's Day, let's hope you let the girl in your life know how much you appreciate who she is rather than what.
