Remember the temporary tattoos you'd wear as a kid? You'd usually get them from seedy 25 cent machines in laundromats or whatever, and there were all sorts of designs: cartoons, Sanrio characters, and I remember having a teardrop one under my eye before I ever knew what it meant *cringe*.
Well, those traditions of old have definitely grown up and now we, as fashionable adults, can play with temporary tattoos once again...this time in jewelry form! I tip my hat to whoever cooked up this ingenious, affordable, low maintenance concept. DreamTats is currently my favorite on the market--their designs are minimal yet bold, subtle yet statement-making. You can put them on and not have to accessorize with jewelry for up to a whole week, but I wanted to demonstrate here that mixing tattoo jewelry with the real deal (in both jewelry and tattoos) can be a surprisingly pleasant combination.
With that, I bow out by apologizing for the weeklong hiatus. I think that's the longest I've gone without posting. My NYC trip has been equal parts wonderfully strange and strangely wonderful. I'm dying to tell you what I have up my sleeve, but I have a lot of news that I don't want to jinx just yet. However, I can divulge that today I will be having a closet sale (flyer attached at the end of this post) at Space15Twenty in Hollywood with all your favorite LA bloggers + Depop will have a booth selling goods from the likes of Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad and more + one of my very best pals Alex of Malta will be spinning a live DJ set. You should check out and download his new LP here--it's FREE! And very, very good.
Okay that's enough babbling from me, I've just missed y'all so much. See you tomorrow!
