I recently went to the Art in the Streets exhibit at the MOCA. This is the first major exhibition of graffiti and street art in an American museum. The exhibit shows the origins and development of what is possibly the most influential art movement since Pop Art in the 70s. Os Gêmeos‘cartoon-like works, Banksy’s stencils with layers of old duct tape and paint, and the miniature train cars are not to be missed. Admission is free on Thursday’s from 5-8pm – I highly recommend going if you’re in LA!
Of Two Minds‘ collection of vintage-inspired prints, luxe textures and subtle tones has swept me off my feet. A recent transport from Paris to Los Angeles, designer and creative director Sunjoo Moon has put her Parisian chic meets Topanga Canyon bohemian aesthetic into each wearable piece. Love!
You should all know by now that we are all about stacking bracelets on our wrists. The more, the better. In fact . . . the most, the best! With that being said, we’ll show you how to master a version of the ever so popular wrap bracelet. It’s so simple and addicting, you’ll soon be churning out these wristlets with your eyes closed. Clearly this arm party train isn’t stopping and it’s about time you get on board!
You’ll need (for a double wrapped bracelet) :
- 44-55 inches* of 1.5mm leather cord
- 12-15 inches* of brass ball chain or crystal chain
- 58-72 inches* of waxed linen cord (scroll down in link)
- a 1/4″ brass hex nut
- a pair of scissors
* Lengths will vary depending on the size of your wrist (see comments for suggestions).
