WORKAHOLIC // OLO FRAGRANCE // ESSENTIAL OILS HAND MADE

The first time my scent receptors got a hold of OLO oils, I felt like I discovered a secret batch of something that I had to hoard.  I felt like this smell had to be mine and all mine.  The beauty of essential oil scents is that it harmonizes with your own body chemistry and creates a […]

R.SWIADER // LENDING EASE AND HAPPINESS THIS SS/15

When I took a look at this collection, I couldn’t help but want to cover my own self in its layers.  The fabrics, textures, and minimal dimensions that  R.Swiader  has provided in his new collection prove to be something every man (and woman) may want to crawl in before heading into the battle of urban living. “R.Swiader […]

NATURE VS ENVIRONMENT // DAIDO MORIYAMA

When getting lost on the Little Big Man Gallery site, I stumbled upon Daido’s work and couldn’t continue my aimless search.  His work held me eyes, and the part of your brain that plays the games of recognition took over. There is a part of you that feels like you are more connected and more involved when you […]

THANKS FOR TRYING // CULTURE COLLIDE 2014

Besides the music and the beer, stylish fellow festival-goers can be quite an asset to a weekend of music. Now, I’m not talking about the one-size-fits-all flower crowns and cutoffs that a certain California festival provides, but more the outfits that seem to be inspired by an actual personal taste in clothing versus the need […]

Culture Collide is a music festival all its own. Based upon the premise of bringing together acts from around the world (hence the name), it does just that… and it does not disappoint. For 3 days Echo Park’s venues are filled with musical talents far and wide, boasting lineups from Peru to Israel, The Netherlands […]

HEALTH GOTH // REAL GOTH

“Are you Health Goth?” “No.” “What are you?” “Goth.” “Well, I’m goth, too.” “No.” “I’m Health Goth.” “OK.” “I mean, I’m currently into really baggy Alexander Wang. I feel like that is very ‘me’ now.” “OK.” “Is Rhianna a goth?” “No.” “That’s right! She is Ghetto Goth.” “That is not real goth.” “Do you like […]

HOUSE OF MODERN HORRORS // EVERYDAY

You know what’s scarier than a ghost? When the tag is sticking out of someone’s shirt. You know what will make any civilized person cringe? When someone has snot hanging out of their nose and you have to tell them about it. You know what is more terrifying than Halloween? When someone has toilet paper […]

AMANDA CHARCHIAN x JOSE ROMUSSI // A SURREALIST COLLABORATION PERFECT FOR THIS HALLOW SEASON

Jose Romussi works with black and white photographic inspirations to create a new form by overlaying embroidery on the image, allowing for a unique inspiration to give birth.  Amanda Charchian, one of our personal favorite photographers/artists, has come together with Jose to create what feels reminiscent of a tableaux story line and visual aesthetic of early 1920’s […]

PLANNINGTOROCK // U + U

No one has had a better year musically than Planningtorock. The queer electronic experimentalist released her third album at the beginning of this year and has squeezed content from it all year. Fortunately, it is an unending, delicious audial treat. PTR has new shit to give, too. With the release of the new maxi-single for the song […]
