  • Thrift-tiqueing Guide

    This is Elise. 

    Oh, sweet sweet Pomona. Guys, you HAVE to get outside of LA to find great antique and thrift stores. I would definitely start in Pomona. The Arts District there holds an entire street of antique shops all in row. Lots of good thrift stores in the area too. Here are our top three (kind of):

    Those last two are the best thrift stores. Some vintage finds, but mostly just great 90's stuff. And REAL thrift stores prices too. 

    We'll be posting some of our finds very soon!

  • Abstract Hoop Earrings DIY

    This is Elise. 

    This DIY was inpired by the need for something to wear to Create Dinners No. 6 HAPPENING THIS SATURDAY!!! Not that I'm excited or anything.... Let's get into it. 

    You'll need:

    • Gold paint
    • Gold floral wire
    • Wire cutters
    • Gold earrings ...loops? What the hey do you call those anyway. 
    • Gold jump rings (how do I know they're called that and not the earring part?)
    • Wooden beads
    • Hot glue

    • Start by cutting off 4-5 inches of gold floral wire. 
    • Bend into a wavy hoop.
    • Spray paint two small wooden beads gold. 
    • Dot hot glue onto the ends of the wire hoop and place into the bead; let cool. 
    • Add a gold jump ring and earring hook and voila!

  • Korena Webber Necklaces

    This is Katie and Elise. 

    The necklace you see above is yours for the having from Korena Webber Jewelry. It is the most comfortable and versatile necklace you will own. Seriously. Both of us are chronic jewelry buyers without actually wearing any of it.... but because of the materials and style, these feel so casual and unique. And for the price, you might as well get one per outfit! 

    You might remember for Create Dinners No. 5, Kori handmade over 15 unique necklaces for the girls who attended to take home! They were a huge hit, and most of us wore them for the Dinner too!

    So what are you waiting for?
