Monday, November 12, 2012 Nasty Gals Do It Better: In The Saints & Sinners Dress
Leave it to Jessica of Vintage Virgin to pair our wickedly demure Saints & Sinners Dress with the brightest vintage rainbow colorblock sweater to create an outfit that surely Mondrian himself would have admired!
Friday, November 9, 2012 Artsy Fartsy: Mutual Core
We’re freaking out a little about this teaser of Björk’s new video… and lucky for us (and everyone else in Los Angeles) we get to see it first, even before the internet. This Monday, MOCA’s hosting an exclusive screening of “Mutual Core” on Grand Avenue from 11 AM to 5 PM. We’ve heard it’s more of a short film than music video, with a lot of volcanic imagery and the trademark Björk intensity we love so much. And since it’s directed by local artist/filmmaker/hacker Andrew Huang, we know it’s going to be out of control. Best thing is, the event is free to everyone, and it screens every 15 minutes, so there’s plenty chance to go. We’re heading over on a Nasty Gal field trip together, so we hope to see you there–we’ll let you know when on Monday… join us!
PS: In case you miss it (or can’t make it), “Mutual Core” will debut on MOCAtv afterwards; if you subscribe to the channel now, you get a free three-month membership to the museum.
Friday, November 9, 2012 A Week With: Linda, Changing The World One Sample At A Time
Our adorable Studio Production Assistant, Linda Park, is a gal who does not take her style too seriously, the only component she considers essential are her deep, red lips. “I like to have a sense of humor with my style. I’ll wear a LBD with Nike running shoes.” It only makes sense that when we see Linda, it’s often just her shiny, black hair whipping by as she sprints into the office with a packed rolling rack full of treasures trailing behind her. Let’s take a tour of this sun-kissed beauty’s childhood home as we chill with her folks, and go for a skate sesh around the neighborhood.
“I keep my decor and makeup routine simple; Nars lipstick on my dresser, and photos I’ve taken of wildflowers on my wall.”
“These cat ears are too cute not to borrow from the studio! Unfortunately, they don’t launch on the site until the holidays…” (We’ll be waiting eagerly…)

“I want to learn how to skate because all my guy friends keep telling me I’m going to fall.”
“My dad is the coolest guy I know. He came to the U.S. to make surfboards in the 70′s. Now he’s into photography and I’m learning so much from him. My mom? Well, she was already GROWING kale before it was cool to eat it.”
“I started knitting when I studied abroad in Paris. It was something to remind me of my grandmother who had passed before she could teach me. Luckily, I picked it up with the aid of YouTube.”

“I’m most inspired by designers whose brands encompass more than just fashion. It’s a lifestyle, like Nasty Gal.”
