Mama x The Goods!: F/W '08 "Mi Vida Loca"

Photobucket


So, since I claim to be SO BUSY all the time, I should be sharing what it is that has been keeping me sooooo BUSY, right? Well, this past November I got together with Mama Clothing to style her Fall Collection, "Mi Vida Loca". The collection was a mix of the 40's Zoot Suit feel meets the Chola look form the 70's and 80's. We ran through San Francisco shooting at Dolores Park, in an old Church and ended up at the garage of Last Originals Kar Club memeber, Velez. I brought out the vintage Nike Cortez, old english buckled webbed belts, chola purple nail polihs, Ben Davis, work-wear denim and chinos form the 50's and 60's, 80's stretch denim jeans and skirts and of course the bamboos earrings...at least two pairs. Here are some behind the scenes picts, video and the final out come. Girls, it ain't easy...but damn it is fun!

Gettin' Funky with Funky Fanny's



I manage to make it out to BK while on my monthly NYC visit...I don't know why that seems like a task to me, I know it's not really that far. But when there's vintage involved, there is no distance too far, rain, sleet or snow, I am there! ATWG teamed up with BK's vintage vixen, Serci aka Funky Fanny's to throw a little vintage sale extravaganza at the Pillow Cafe. Radio Rose provided the soundtrack for the night (I know I've said that before but that IS what she does!) and the ladies shopped! My connection to Serci goes back a couple of years ago. While on the hunt in Las Vegas we crossed paths at Savers, the thrift department store. If was the friendliest of encounters, believe me there is plenty of the goods to go around. We chatted briefly and that was that, until this event. Happy to be reconnected!

Rose and I...YO, I think the vintage had me under it's control...possessesd by the vintage? I think yes.
