Last night I had the great opportunity to have dinner with three fabulous ladies, one who happened to be Karen Marley, the daughter of the legendary Bob Marley. This was quite a special moment for me as I have been such a huge fan of Bob's music all my life and I very much respect the legacy of his name and what his music represents to the world.
What I soon found out after meeting Karen is that she has a major flair for fashion and some serious sass. All the things I love in a gal. Born in Jamaica, she lived in London for awhile before she moved here to Los Angeles. Karen has always had an eye for fashion as well as business working with her sister Cedella on her Catch a Fire line along with the many Marley family projects.
Karen brought along her BFF and business partner, Monique Aquino- aka Dillon Delacroix, who was equally as fashionable and sassy. The two are opening a new Vintage boutique in Downtown Los Angeles in April called Buttons and Bows that I am super excited about.
I can't wait to take all the CLC girls there as we are all big lovers of vintage and get a lot of inspiration from things of the past. I also want to get Ms. Marley in some CLC as I know it is such a great fit for her eclectic style.

Looking forward to the opening!
A few art walks ago in Downtown LA, going mostly just to sample the extensive selection of foodtrucks, I stumbled upon the works of Patrick Haemmerlein. While normally quite blaze about the whole artwalk art, I was delighted to find some works that intrigued me.
Patrick Haemmerlein is a native to NY now living in LA as a freelance photographer and graphic designer. When he first moved to L.A he began his “obsessive photographic cataloguing of the city” (artist's website) with those images of urban life and chaos he has created mixed media works using recycled wood and books often expressing commentary on how urban chaotic living and industry coexists or clashes with nature.
Being new to L.A myself I appreciated his gritty portrayal of the city I now call home.
far right L.A theatre -is hanging in my room.
