Retail Therapy

Love Angel Music BabyWoke up this morning and went to my dermatology appointment like a good girl. Submitted my face for a good frying, then waited for the redness and swelling to subside. As soon as a little Vincent Longo could cover up the horror, I headed out to Paseo Colorado for some effective pain relief.

Hit up one of my favorite boutiques – B.Luu, where you can find some cool stuff from contemporary designers. Pasadena can be sleepy when it comes to fashion, but this shoppe is the closest thing to Robertson without leaving town… If they’d start carrying Nanette Lepore, they could save me a trip.

Turns out they just got in a shipment of late Fall items from Gwen Stefani’s line, L.A.M.B. I’ve poked fun at the Hollaback Girl before, but who can deny that she has some wicked style. She was even kind enough to share… Her designs are nearly as fabulous as she is: Post-punk meets old Hollywood glam.

Although I tried to justify a more extravagant purchase (like this item, perhaps) I ended up only walking away with a super soft, tissue-thin, long-sleeve, artsy, pirate ship t-shirt… But it made me smile. Thanks to Gwen for making something more effective than Tylenol.

    Oh look! The Bomber is trick-or-treating on her space rocket! That’s just sixteen shades of adorable is what it is!

    Oh yeah… Gwen Stefani is totally hot. Pirates are totally cool. You’d think that if you put the cool and hot together you’d end up with neither, but something tells me that is simply not the case here… I’m thinking you end up with something “hotly cool” or perhaps “cooly hot” — there’s no way anything to do with Gwen can be “tepid” or “luke-warm”.

    I am such a complete spazz! Hadn’t even owned this dang shirt for eight hours before I jacked it up. Managed to flail some sauce across it at dinner — BONUS! …It’s air drying right now. šŸ™„
