Nothing makes us long for lazy beach days quite like Pirelli’s 1969 calendar, shot by avant-garde British photographer Harri Peccinotti. His sun-drenched snapshots of California girls catching some rays on the beach perfectly capture the iconic ’60s surf culture. It’s time to grab a bikini, pile into a car with your BFFs and head west until you hit the sand.
From soaking up the sun in Malibu and Palm Springs to digging for vintage gold at the flea market, Nasty Gals definitely know how to make the most of the weekend.
Aussie darling Skye McRae’s favorite color is rainbow. She lives by the ocean in Tamarama, Sydney, considers California her second home and loves Sunday afternoons. Skye is the voice behind the blog, A Patch Of Skye – a platform for creative escapism and, more importantly, a space where she can drift into a mystical world where she matches beautiful images with poetic poses. Her blog is a visual diary that encapsulates Skye’s inspirations: “Poetry and people’s secret thoughts are what inspire me most. Those ideas combined with soft, whimsical imagery that talks to the viewer through the emotions that they bring”.
We leave you with one of Skye’s visual tales.
On the Second Sunday of every month, you’ll usually find us (and every other vintage-crazed girl) at the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena.
Of course, one of our favorite things about the Rose Bowl is getting to spot some of the coolest street style in LA. We always end up snapping a ton of photos while we’re on the hunt for vintage treasures. Here’s some of the sweet stuff we found on our latest trip!
We spotted this girl sifting through the racks in an epic denim jacket with a leather cross and collar. Badass doesn’t even begin to describe it. And how rad are these neon smiley face rings? They brought us back to the days we proudly rocked slap bracelets…in a good way.
