Ronnie the rookie

As many of you already know, I am a big fan of Archie Comics. I still have all of my old comics from when I was a little kid and used to buy them for just 50 cents. This is why I was ecstatic when I found out Rachel Antonoff created a Betty & Veronica collection. Of course I had to get my hands on some of their pieces like this awesome sporty dress adorned with various Betty & Veronica comic strips. Everyone thought I was wearing a shirt under the dress… Read More

Mad for Martinique!

The Iconic and glamorous Beverly Hills Hotel a.k.a The Pink Palace was built in the early 1900s and is known for its 1950’s architecture, stylish decor, and legendary guests.

You might also recognize his work if you are a Duran Duran fan as he designed their album cover… Read More

My friend Kenley Collins is an amazing fashion designer who continues to break the mold of traditional rockabilly style and I recently got my hands on one of her pieces which was a romper with a cassette tape print. It was love at first sight and a really great piece that speaks to me… Read More

The Cat & The Caddy Shack!

A few weeks ago there was an open house in the neighborhood for this infamous house called the Caddy Shack designed by Palmer & Krisel in 1962. This is the same duo who designed the house I now live in with my best friend. This particular home is more Avant Garde than the other models they built and the owners have done a great job making sure it has stayed in its original condition all of these years without some mumbo jumbo coming in to modernize it. I was excited to see… Read More
