$2 Dolla Holla!

This past Friday my mother and I attended the $2 Goodwill Sale. The Goodwill sale only happens once a year and I was definitely going to be there. Waking up at 8am isn't bad but when you have a cold you acquired the night before it's unholy, but nothing was going to stop me. Arriving at the sale I got a rush of energy and excitement my blood started boiling!!!! no joke. The doors of Goodwill opened and I rushed inside like if it was a black Friday sale. Anything pastel, bright, printed and sequins had to be snatched up and in my shopping cart. Little by little the pile of clothing grew and grew and grew till I practically had a mountain of clothing larger than me, All in all I bought every single piece of clothing I picked, call me hoarder, call me a vintage connoisseur, call me whatever you like but I know I got some amazing pieces. I left the Goodwill sale with 5 big bags. 
I love thrifting!

p.s excuse the crappy photos all I had was my iPhone

Snap Back

I've been obsessing over snapbacks lately.. 
Snapback hat + dark sunnies + drop crotch pants + leather jacket + heels = perfect outfit. 

On occasion I'll set up a booth called Haus of Love with a lot of chic vintage pieces at different events. This Friday if your in the Pomona area and want something to do, then please join us at Nail'd. My talented friend Patty who designs some intense and beautiful nail art will be displaying her artwork and will also be painting away nails at donation cost. Check out Cakes Nails here and here.

Venice Beach.


Wearing F21 moto jacket, Gypsy Junkies Crop top, drop pants from Echo Park Lotus festival, orange wedges from lola's shoetique, sunnies from Kapsoul

On my days off I love, love, love to spend time with my friends. We all took a trip to Venice Beach and it was pretty magical not to mention it being a pretty weird day. I guess lessons learned and surprises along the way are blessings in disguise.

Happy New Year, everyone!!!! It's the year of the dragon and I can't believe it's the end of January 2012. To me new years come and go, but this year will be legendary. I feel as though my family and friends are all on the same hunger for something else weather it be creative, being resourceful or just living life on a happy level. It's time to be cultivated into a community. 
 I hope everyone has a celebrated year of the dragon.

 Wearing Missoni Inspired Jumper from Fallas Paredes, a shaggy shrug from T and Showroom

When the thrift stores are closed, I shop anywhere else where I can save a buck and still get chic clothes. My bf and I took a trip to Fallas Paredes outlet store this weekend. As some of you know Fallas is known to be supppper ghetto. But nonetheless I always find some really chic pieces amongst the craziness. Shopping at Fallas reminds me of shopping at a thrift store a) because it's always a cluster fuck of clothes, b) the prices are pretty amazing and c) digging through clothes upon clothes just to find that one piece you'll be in complete love with. I'll be posting a haul of what I bought soon along with outfit posts. YAY!!!!!

Life on Instagram

INSTAGRAM has taken over my life!!!! 
Yes it's true. I find myself more and more involved on Instagram. I prefer Instagram over Tumblr and Facebook. What's not to love?!? You follow people you love or people you want to know and catch a glimpse of what their life looks like. (stalker!!!haha) Instagram is definitely a great source for inspiration. 
Be a lover on Instagram and follow me Kelly_is_Love.

I'm definitely more of an iridescent kinda girl. My friend Kiki once gave me a spirit animal of a chameleon and my best friend Geisha calls me Rainbow. When i was a tween friends called me Punky. A chameleon is probably the best spirit animal for me. 
It totally replicates my style.


Los Angeles has been on the late train when it comes to fall/winter weather. ugh... I really want to dress up in layers..!! DAMNIT!!! But in the spirit of being a buyer Magic Tradeshow is coming up and well it's time to buy Spring 2012. Top things I want to see...

Then you know I LOVE TO THRIFT!!!!!!
I've been known to spend a whole paycheck on thrifting, I've also been known to skip meals and sleep to thrift. Nothing is more close to my heart than shopping at a thrift store. Here are my top tips in vintage buying and thrift shopping. 

HAPPY Thrifting!

-Tip 1: Wear a full skirt, so you can try on pants, skirts and shorts under it. (most times fitting rooms are unavailable)
-Tip 2: Watch for the daily specials – certain color tags means certain discounts
-Tip 3: make sure to eat before thrifting (shopping under hunger is never fun!!!)
-Tip 4: pace yourself you could get really distracted
-Tip 5: always bring cash, sometimes sales associates won’t charge you tax.
Remember when shopping with a buddy all thrift rules apply!
That means if your girlfriend finds something you like, sorry finders keepers. But sharing is caring.
-Tip 6:  I suggest going to thrift stores alone!!! or with a boy who is a friend and knows your style, Because two extra eyes is better than none.
