Wednesday, September 18, 2013 California Dreaming: My Moment With The Man Repeller
For any of you that know me, (probably a grand total of two people—my best friend and my boss), you are aware that I love Leandra Medine. So much so, that I got a little fangirl-y last night at Leandra’s book signing event at Barney’s in Los Angeles. For the last nine months, I have been patiently awaiting the arrival of Seeking Love, Finding Overalls, Leandra’s debut book, which she describes as ”…a love story sprinkled over different kinds of denim.” You can only imagine how thrilled I was when I found out that she would be holding a book signing at The Grove. Sophia (#GIRLBOSS) attended the event as well, since she and Leandra are pals, and as a Professional Dream-Fulfiller (which will be added to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary in 2014 if any of you were wondering…jk) Sophia introduced me to Leandra, and then it got even better: I got to conduct a mini interview with her. Of course, I was way too indecisive in choosing what the heck to ask her in the one-and-a-half minute time slot I had, so I’m warning you the questions are a little, well, random. Regardless, I was so excited to chat with my idol about the Circus of Fashion, boogers, and Birkenstocks.
What about you? Who would bring the inner fangirl out in you? -Marissa

Two Spring Breakers-obsessed friends, Marissa Klurstein and Keely Murphy (who also happen to be our insanely talented content assistant and intern), set out on a Malibu mission that takes place in a time period where Bonnie & Clyde, Harmony Korine, and Tupac collide. Hop in, enjoy the ride, and don’t forget to
sing rap along to some serious throwback jamz!
Thursday, September 5, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Shoe Cult Kool-Aid
For many of us, the first cult we ever join is the cult of fandom that hits when we discover our new favorite band. For me, that moment hit in high school when I discovered the Jesus and Mary Chain, and I’m not sure I ever full recovered (not that I wanted to, of course). So because every cult needs a soundtrack, here are a few tracks that never fail to lull me into trance, and will totally seduce you into drinking the Shoe Cult Kool-Aid. You can thank us later. -Cat
