Gerard Maione, the Creative Director of What Goes Around Comes Around, had Lauren Hutton in mind when designing for his and Seth Weisser’s spring collection. Her bold sophistication and effortless modesty inspired the globetrotting collection. The presentation started with a trip to Buenos Aires with bright red dresses and jade skirts. Then it was off to Africa with stunning caftans, turbans and silk trousers; and finally to The Gold Coast of Long Island with retro swimwear and beautiful Victorian lace blouses. 110% fabulous.
Thank you to all of you that come out to our denim themed FNO event at Madewell last night! For those of you that missed it, we DIYed menswear-inspired accessories made from Madewell denim, such as bow ties, neckties, and ascots. It was inspiring to see everyone express their inner craft prowess and go off on their own creative directions with DIYing cuff bracelets and mini handbags made from denim scrap! What an amazing night it was . . . and a huge thank you to Grace of Stripes & Sequins for helping us out!! xx
What a fabulous FNO event we had last night at Free People, DIYing our ever so popular wrap bracelet. Thank you to everyone who came out – it was a blast getting crafty with our East coast readers and getting to finally meet our friends at Free People (I especially loved meeting my new favorite little blogger Georgetta who was sporting Wee People, of course). And thanks to Kanon Vodka whose delicious cocktails, mixed with Vita Coco and Prometheus Springs, were flowing like water all night long. Read more about it here.
Calling all fashionistas, come celebrate Fashion’s Night Out with us in New York on September 8th! We’ll be doing double duty, DIYing at two of our favorite stores: Madewell & Free People! Snack on some sweet treats with me at Madewell while we DIY menswear inspired denim accessories. And just a couple of blocks away, at Free People, sip on cocktails and DIY our popular wrap bracelet with Lauren while listening to some live music. We hope to see you next Thursday night! xx
Several months ago, we visited the studio of our friend Mary Button Durell. Mary, a San Francisco based artist, creates translucent and abstract sculptures using only a single material which is handmade by layering sheets of tracing paper and wheat paste. Her delicate and complex sculptures are reminiscent of cocoons, bee hives, and underwater organisms. Honestly mind blowing and inspiring. Thank you for the day of fun, Mary Button!
A few weeks ago, we were excited to check out What Goes Around Comes Around‘s newest location on La Brea Avenue in LA. Not only is it filled with the most incredible selection of vintage denim, boots, bags, kaftans, and jewelry, the store itself is impeccably designed in true WGACA style. After we found out they were planning to turn 50 pairs of 80′s dead stock Jordache jeans into denim cut offs, we had to revisit the store to get in on all the DIY action. If you’re a lover of vintage and are in the area, be sure to drop in and check it out!
