"wanderlust" [26 Mar 2008|11:09pm]
last night, we went to the LA premiere of björk's new video for the song wanderlust -and it was short entirely in 3D. personally, i am quite a fan of anything 3D - pop-up books, imax films, and the like (not to mention the awesome 80's style 3D glasses that you can tuck away into your purse and sport as a fashion accessory).

i've even seen "sea monsters of the deep" in 3D, and let me tell you... i never thought i could be so terrified by IMAGES of sea monsters. they looked incredibly real. incrediby frightening.

so can you imagine being immersed in THIS world:

watch the preview (in 2D, sorry) here:

ebay - the new match.com? [20 Mar 2008|11:27am]
we've been having quite an exciting couple of weeks in the e-mail department. cara received a nice letter from cynthia rowley, thanking her for mentioning her bicycle on our blog. then we get this in our inbox:

Hello ladies.
I am SO into your ebay bizz. I think there is no better combo than the Aquarius and Virgo for any ebay purposes
(note: cara is a virgo and i am an aquarius). My aquarian friend and I made nice profits together.

I saw you guys were looking for a place in Silverlake. My brother bought a home 2 years ago in silverlake, he let me get the apartment upstairs. I am real lucky kid.

I would LOVE to meet up sometime for drinks on me. I am a white 25/male. I am looking for brand new friends.

well, judging from the detailed information he knew about us and our lives, i am assuming that he reads this blog. so here's to you, mr. anonymous ebay dater! A/S/L/pic??

aside from that, things have been quiet on our parts. we only have a few things up for sale:

click here to shop!

new auctions will be up over the weekend. and lastly...

so if you are a cute girl living in the southern california area and are interested in being our newest model/muse/kate moss, please send an e-mail to irita@lovelovelove.us with some pictures or a link to your myspace/facebook/flickr. pays $50 per day!

thanks! :)

02/25 - mod plaid capes, pretty flower dresses, beatnik turtlenecks... american apparel ads? [25 Feb 2008|05:18pm]
due to the rainy weather in los angeles last week, we were forced to move our photoshoots indoors. the combination of a blank white wall lit by a single floor lamp resulted in a strange set of photographs that resemble those provocative american apparel ads... is that a good thing, or a bad thing?

more on sale this week...Collapse )

Rainy Days and Mondays [24 Feb 2008|07:23pm]
To state it simply enough, Southern California and its populace can not handle the rain. The moment the clouds start rolling in and the rain droplets just begin to speckle the pavement like some sort of urban Easter egg -- people start freaking out. The freeways become congested in a state of perpetual rush hour and the news channels promptly launch themselves into a "Storm Watch 200_" frenzy (please fill in the blank with the appropriate year).

So. With that said, Los Angeles has been inundated with rain for the past week. This is relatively unheard of, and I can't imagine that I'm the only one who was not adequately prepared for the torrential downpour (I'm not sure whether or not to be embarrassed to admit that I do not even own an umbrella). However, if I were to find myself properly clothed for the current conditions, I imagine I would be skipping through puddles in something like this:

Yes, I skip through puddles.

In heels.

chronicles of a futile housing quest [18 Feb 2008|08:13pm]
finding a nice apartment that has a parking spot, and for under $1000 in silverlake (one of those hipster LA neighborhoods) is pretty much like winning the lottery. so i give up.

how much do you think they charge for rent? (neuschwanstein castle, bavaria).

ebay wishlist - 02/17/08 [18 Feb 2008|12:44am]
while everyone else is fawning over the latest fall 2008 fashion runways, i am actually looking back upon spring 2008 couture for inspiration - because...

a) let's face it, it is the ACTUAL next season and i'm obviously not wearing fall trends in 80-degree california spring weather;
b) the artist in me is much more inspired by the conceptuality of haute couture than boring ready-to-wear; and
c) i love vintage and therefore am probably doomed to always be looking backwards instead of forwards.

with that said, my favorite looks for spring all seem to involve pretty dresses in sweet ruffles and sheer fabrics; then strangely, the absolute opposite - strong black and white matador-inspired looks; and lastly, glittery old-vegas-style metallics.

thusly, as i am hunting for next month's wardrobe additions on ebay ("shopping victoriously", you might say), these are the things that caught my little eye...

i lovelovelove the ruffle detail at the collar. subtle and you won't look like a guy in a bad 70's prom suit.

goodbye, winter wonderland [12 Feb 2008|02:57pm]
it's 81 degrees outside, and because of this very reason i am able to bid farewell to the coldest season of the year. normally, i would be too angry and cold to revere any aspect of the wintertime; but as the snow melts from the sierra nevadas, so does my heart.

thrift envy - "dreams of domesticity" edition [11 Feb 2008|10:37am]
i am a terrible thrifter. you may or may not be shocked by the idea, as i sell vintage clothing for a (modest) living. but the fact is, i handpick those clothes from vintage stores, estate sales, flea markets, et al. for so high a price that i rarely ever turn much of a profit... but i digress.

the point is, southern californian thrift stores are so overpicked by vintage store buyers, antique store owners, and bargain hunters alike that the treasured gems most people find or associate with thrift stores are no longer there whenever i come around - they're probably sitting on a shelf in an overpriced boutique somewhere.

that's why i love groups like nifty thrift on flickr and thriftwhore on livejournal - people from all around the world share pictures of the wonderful things that they find in thrift stores, usually for some ridiculously low price that makes me sort of sad and wish that i coud live in a world where people buy pucci dresses for $3 (oh, one can dream...) nevertheless, here are some things that i have fawned over from the aforementioned groups:

70's heart-shaped bed with BUILT-IN 8-TRACK PLAYER!

more treasures this wayCollapse )

that's it for now. more pictures of thrifted clothing, jewelry, and paintings that i wish were thrifted by and subsequently belong to me coming soon...

i'd like a time machine, so i can go back and live in the 60's [31 Jan 2008|01:22pm]
"This is a photo taken in the Summer of 1967 of me wearing one of my favourite Biba dresses. I still remember trying it on in Biba's communal changing room in Kensington Church Street, listening to Sergeant Pepper on the stereo. What an exciting time that was.

I particularly loved this dress because it was cut in such a way that it fitted my petite figure perfectly and the halter-neck style looked very flattering.  I had never seen a dress like it before and I thought it was absolutely gorgeous!!!

I don't remember wearing this dress at any particular occasion, but I did go to a lot of parties with my friends that lovely summer and we often frequented the Café des Artistes in Chelsea and I would certainly have worn it there.

When I look at this photo now I think how lucky I was to have been 21 in the Summer of Love."

hippie nouveau [14 Jan 2008|06:39pm]
i have always had a fasciantion with the whole art nouveau and arts and crafts movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a fascination with the style that was re-discovered and adopted in the whole peace and love movement of the 60's (see biba). certainly one of the most well known (and one of my favorite) artists from that period was aubrey beardsley - swirling, dramatic, romantic, dark... perfect inspiration for this gloomy january weather.

i heart flickr [04 Nov 2007|12:36pm]
so like most people in this lovely internet day and age, i have the holy trinity of a gmail, myspace, and facebook. but one of my favorite sites has to be flickr - which is no longer limited to albums of posed, drunken pictures of your friends but an actual place for people to share AND show off their photographic sensibilities.

my favorite internet pasttime is to browse through the millions of (easily searchable) pictures to glean some sort of inspiration...

pictures that incite wanderlustCollapse )

pictures that incite hungerCollapse )

pictures that make me want to dress betterCollapse )

what are your favorites?

but what's new for fall by spring means nothing [27 Sep 2007|03:03pm]
i know what trends vogue and style.com say are going to big for fall 2007. but frankly? i don't care. here are the trends I'M rocking this fall. meaning, these are the things i am scouring ebay for at the moment:

a cape
the story begins last year when i found THE most perfect brown faux-fur hooded cape at aaardvark's odd ark (a vintage store on melrose in hollywood), but didn't buy it and now it is gone forever. i still rue that decision to this day. (l: spanish moss vintage on ebay, r: calico on ebay).

a large needlepoint purse
i really want a huge vintage needlepoint purse. i know they are kind of sort of like your grandma's purse. but that's okay because i like your grandma's style. (l: the coveted on flickr, r: ebay).

a pair of jewel-toned tights
i never thought anyone over the age of eight who wasn't a ballerina would wear tights again... until they actually became trendy last year. and ever since i came back from europe i am obsessed with tights. european girls really know how to dress their legs. (all: facehunter).

a head of big hair
i know you cannot really buy big hair off of ebay. but you can buy a comb and a lot of industrial-strength hair spray. (l: facehunter, r: nylon).

but seeing as summer is not neeeearly over (for me anyway as school starts back up next week), here are some last end of summer dresses for you to enjoy:
