Amber is styled in all vintage and thrifted finds. “Eek” you say…”but those poor wee minks”… Well.. before you throw red paint on my furry friends with their precious little faces.. talk to your great grandma..because its antique. I know the heads weird people out, I suppose I could alter it and clip them off so we aren’t reminded that it was once a living breathing creature with feelings too, if that makes you feel better. But really we are essentially being “green” and we are actually helping the planet by shopping vintage.  Everything in our shoot is recycled fashion, handmade and sourced from local charities. The 70s striped ruffle blouse with gold metallic threading and off-center buttons that extend high on the neck is bold, feminine and handmade. No-one at the party will be wearing the same shirt. It looks great mixed with a floral skirt of the same tones and a suede color block mod/hippie era belt.

Below Amber wears a 1950s genuine leopard fur coat. Yes, it’s really real. We are Bohemians, we love authentic! We don’t do fake or “faux”.  Maybe you weren’t that upset over grannys petrified varmint accoutrement pictured above; everyones grandma had a fur stole. When it comes to big cats though..whoa.. watch out. I understand, it ain’t right! I don’t support hunting cats nor do I long for exotic furs. I inherited the coat from my grandmother and because of CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) it is illegal to sell even vintage leopard furs. Sooo… I’m stuck with it. Oh poo. Rather than have a medium perform a seance and try to bring it back to life or release my hoarding tendencies and actually give it away, we store the heirloom lovingly… in 1 of my 7 closets. Amber rocks it with 90s purple crushed velvet leggings, a vintage Kiss tour tee, a tangle of silver and antique glass bead necklaces and a delicious pair of 1970s glam rockstar platforms.

The Emerald Triangle


The “Emerald Triangle”, the triad of Trinity, Humboldt and Mendocino Counties in Northern California. This is the home of BigFoot herself and secluded StarWars filming locales.  The forests are a hyper-saturated green with carpets of lacy young ferns and cushy vibrant moss clinging to rocks and dripping from the branches of giant ancient Redwoods that extend over to the rocky coastal cliffs. Drive further inland and there are endless rows of “emerald” colored grapevines undulating over hillsides, weaving striking symmetrical patterns like something straight out of M.C Escher’s mind. With all of its green-osity, no wonder its nicknamed “The Emerald Triangle” right?? – Wrong!  Because unless you’re following Prop 215 and have a lifetime subscription (or should I say ‘prescription’) to High Times, you will likely think that “The Emerald Triangle” is the latest OZ iteration or someplace west of Bermuda. The average tourist has no idea of its nickname which stems from being one of the worlds most abundant marijuana growing regions.

Check out our vibrant fashion  story of California’s ultimate laid back hippie utopia on our 3 day road trippin’ camping adventure to Glass Beach, Avenue of the Giants and the Russian River.
