Coachella & Bohemian Fashion Remix

Wicky, wicky, wicky (that's supposed to be the sound of an old skool record scratching - that's right). Pretty good, huh? That's soon to be the next word in the Urban Dictionary. Props to me yo. Oh... wait up..........until I just found it already exists! What?!?! And it's called the "baby scratch"? So now we know, LOL.  

So lately I've been thinking so much about the Coachella music festival out in the west coast. I've never been and wanted to go so badly this year, but the universe has different plans for me - I suppose!! (what sarcasm? lol). 

I've been thinking for months about what awesome bohemian and vintage digs I could rock, most likely pulling something from my store, the lyrical infusions that would captivate my heart and infiltrate my senses and the amazing, creative spirits I would meet. But until I get to go, I'll work on building an awesome collection of the dopest artisinal and vintage wears and accessories for the next festival. I'm so excited to be working on this, so stay tuned for so much more. I've been working hours on end with barely any sleep to make this happen. I want it to be legendary and virtuous. I'm itching to show you guys what I got. But for now, I thought I 'd find and highlight some inspirational Coachella fashion styles mixing both my loves - bohemian and vintage. Hope you enjoy!

Fashion Rocks the Beach - LoveJoy Vintage & Blu Lua Trunk Show

hola chicos! Lately I've been running around like a mad woman and working ridiculous hours of the day, but for good reason. You see this coming Wednesday I'm holding my first fashion trunk show as an independent business owner - word up!! I've done shows in the past but this one is extra special because it's my very first show as LoveJoy Vintage and as a full-time fashion artist and business owner. 

I am so psyched about this night, yet so overwhelmed and nervous about the outcome. But I'm staying positive and grounded and hoping for the best. I hope those of you that live in Miami can join us for a really fun and dope evening of fashion, jewelry, handbags, music, wine and apps. I'll be partnering with my good friend Diana Perez who is the owner and designer of Blue Lua. Her jewelry is absolutely amaze-balls! 

so come check us out in Miami Beach, this Wednesday, February 20th from 6-9pm. Hope  to see ya'll there. ; )

blog talk: lessons and inspirations
"There's no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love. 
There is only a scarcity of resolve to make it happen." - Wayne Dyer

"In our deepest moments of struggle, frustration, fear, and confusion, we are being called upon to reach in and touch our hearts. Then, we will know what to do, what to say, how to be. What is right is always in our deepest heart of hearts. It is from the deepest part of our hearts that we are capable of reaching out and touching another human being. It is, after all, one heart touching another heart." - Rumi (Sufi poet & mystic)

Oh Sweet Love! Valentine's Day Inspirations...

Valentine's day - a holiday that sparks so many emotions in all of us: that of romantic love, family love and even feelings of sadness and loneliness could creep up for some of us.  But even though this beautiful day has been catastrophically commercialized, it's important for us to remember that in this day we should be so grateful for all the love we receive and share in this universe, no matter who it's with, whether it be sharing a smile with a stranger or spending quality time over Skype with a loved one.  And in my case, even though I'm working the evening of Valentine's and I'm (uber) single, I still catch myself getting excited about another holiday which gives us an excuse to celebrate, be ridiculously cheesy and hopeful and gives us the opportunity to demonstrate our love in a different way. So no matter what your situation is, hope you find a way to enjoy this day and appreciate the beauty in your life, because guess what? lucky enough, we all have some of that. : ) So in the spirit of love, friendship and happiness, I thought I'd share some valentine's day inspirations.
