Flashback! Me and Marissa blabbing for an hour

I have this video on my 'This is me' nav page that Marissa and I recorded live for 'Hello Giggles'but I hadnt thought about it in forever and watched it again yesterday. It's quite humourous at some points and then quite boring at some points for those who dont know us, but for those of you who wonder about this inspiration blog author (yours truly), it's a pretty acurate representation of me and how I am with my friends, haha.


It's also a little pre post before I post more episodes of Marissa's show, 'Tangents and the Times', on Monday!! YES!!! Oh man, I wish her show was on HBO and I could watch it over and over for hours.

Let's Workout!! WILDFOX Foxercise coming to our store this week!

If you are like me and hate working out, one trick that can help is to become a workout girl character and dress up in fun workout clothes! But there is nothing worse then spandex cutting you off in all the wrong places! That's why we made this 80's/90's inspired collection of super soft spandex exercise clothes that can also be worn as outer wear! Think Flash dance, 90210, Clueless, old Jazzercise videos, Tiffany Amber Thiesen, Camp Beverly Hills and all things fun and feminine!!

All shot on my gorgeous friend & model, Annie Helvey... doesn't she play the perfect, 80's "Valley Girl"?

All hits our store on Wednesday!! Very true to size :)






Dancing all night with your friends, investing in a giant trampoline for your backyard, swimming like you have a mermaid tail, arranging a game of capture the flag, riding bikes by the sea, racing boys, learning to march ROTC style, doing musical theatre, giving your girlfriend a piggy back ride, kiss chase, trying to learn britney spears 90’s video  dance routines in your living room, ping pong championships, bowling, re-arranging your furniture (without help), practicing your dive, learning ballet (even if you are terrible), swing dancing with a live jazz band, salsa dancing down town, running through festivals, rollerskating rinks, playing tennis, starry night hikes, kissing (that must burn some calories, right?)  - Love kimberley gordon


The leg warmers were made especially for shooting, but maybe if we get enough requests we can make them to sell on our site... let's see!

She's a Minimale Animale

Cassandra Kellogg is a triple threat BFF I’ve loved for many years, we’ve stormed festivals dressed as ponies, roller skated through discos, hula hooped at the beach  on 4th of July and eaten cold veggie dogs on her kitchen floor, laughing hysterically.

Surfer, stylist, hula hooping extraordinaire and now swimwear designer, Cass brings a collection inspired by 70’s, 80’s and 90’s super models. Her passion for the ocean, Venice Beach (where her office is located, conveniently close to the sand) and running around in bikinis definitely brings something unique and delicious to her designs. She’s the girl who always has a towel in her trunk, a bikini in her purse and sunscreen in her glove compartment, she’s always got a surfboard strapped to HER roof or sticking out over the passenger seat, dressed in an Isabel Marant sweatshirt, ripped old denim shorts and a see-through white T shirt, and blasting Suzie Q, Cassandra really knows what it is to love the beach lifestyle.

If you could have one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?

can I say cereal?

Which marine animal is your favorite?

don't think its an animal, but definitely a mermaid! I still pretend im one, when i go swimming in pools!

What color looks best on tan skin?

tan on tan is the way to go..

If you could live as a famous bombshell in any decade which one would it be and why?

Christie Brinkley  circa 1980's- the 80's were s so big on many things, hair, cars, and especially Swimwear! It would have been amazing to  be Christie, modeling for all those Sports illustrated shoots all over the world, driving Ferrari's for movies and just being that classic 80's TRUE California girl!

Best beach moment ever?

singing our favorite Beatles songs with YOU  and our friends at 2am, in Malibu a few years ago,  while standing on pillars in the ocean as the tide came up.. and then.....
                                    getting lost in the forest  right after

Saddest movie you have ever seen?

sad as in sad- March of the penguins, sad as in crying- The Notebook.


I go barefoot when

I 'm near water!
