Music on the Mind

Since I’ve been back in Los Angeles, I’ve been soaking up all the quintessential L.A. stuff that I missed so much. I’ve squeezed in some concerts, hung out with little miss Donna Bummer (the Disco Drag Poodle) and gotten in some good beach time—because that’s why we live here, right? I’ve been listening to a

Prime Time

We love Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer so much that we’re giving it away as a limited-time gift with purchase!* And though we’ve all heard how great it is to use a primer, it can still be kind of tricky to nail down what exactly it does and how to use it. So we tapped Lori Taylor,

Kickin’ It Through The Decades

Some things never change. If you’re a girl, and you’ve lived…well…ever….chances are you love shoes. Because we have some major shoe news right around the corner (we promise!), we decided to look back at some styles that inspired serious devotion in decades past.

Honey I’m Home

Welcome to Honey’s world, where playing with your food is highly encouraged, emphemerality is priceless, and anything can be a canvas. We went ape over Honey’s awesome tattooed fruit  when we first saw it in Dossier Journal, and discovered that bananas were just the tip of the icebox when it comes to her food/art intersection.

Along with music from DJs Rob Ackroyd,  Twin Shadow and Tamara Sky, there were beers, bikinis and sunglasses galore. Exactly what a pool party should be, right? (Photos by Rony’s Photo Booth)

Our PR Babe Nicole

Kitty Shades Meet Nicole, our PR Assistant. Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, Nicole’s our favorite Valley girl. She ascribes to a healthy regimen of leather jackets, skater skirts and platforms, with an extensive collection of  metal accessories to match. We followed her for a week and got the scoop on hangover spots, witty

London Calling

During my two week romp through Europe, London was calling my name (queue The Clash) the whole time. And what a perfect city to visit before I headed back to sunny Los Angeles. Not only was I in town for an historic London moment with the birth of the Royal Baby (you capitalize Royal Baby, right?), but
