Well, I wanted to have a vintage boutique that was more eighties/early nineties clothing than most other places. And when I think 80s, I think Arnold Schwarzenegger and tech noir. Total Recall was a little bit cheesier than Terminator, but it makes sense and I think it's a good fit.
What is your favorite vintage piece you have come across?
I actually came across my favorite piece yesterday, a pair of black sheer wide leg pants with flowy panels of tiger print on the front and back. Absolute perfection.
What is the best decade for vintage in your opinion?
I prefer late eighties/early nineties. Some of the grungy stuff is really fun and the materials are better.
Aside from running an online vintage store what else do you love to do?
Eat brunch and drink mimosas. And buy shoes.
What does your closet look like? What are your favorite, go-to pieces?
My second bedroom pretty much serves as my closet, and it's a mess. I'm all about Jeffrey Campbell, so my Litas are my #1. And I pretty much live in my vintage shredded shorts. Lots of tiny clothes, I don't like to wear much...tons of bralettes and bandeaus.
Anything you wouldn't be caught wearing or is nothing off limits?
I would say Uggs. That's really all I can think of, I'm pretty open to everything.

I'm sooo excited for this OC Thread event this Sunday, May 15th at The Lab in Costa Mesa. Thread is a one day pop up event that features top up and coming fashion designers. What I love about Thread is that it show cases amazing local designers and brands that you may have never known were right in your own backyard.
One of the reasons why I am excited for Thread to come to Orange County is because I will be able to be a part of this rad event. I will be styling the "Style Live Series" at the OC Thread event this Sunday, May 15th. "Style Live Series" is a fresh take on showcasing designer looks, this isn't your typical runway show. So make sure to stop by and come check out the Thread show's top designer's looks on the model blocks.
Thread the spot to be this weekend, come by and sip on a cocktail, listen to some killer DJ's, and shop to support these amazing designers. After you've gotten your shop on and had a martini (or two) make your way over to the DIY Lounge, Nail Bar, and get your photo snapped in the Thread photo booth. For you guys out there, don't worry Thread hasn't forgotten about you, guys can relax over at the Thread Man-cave. There will great fashion, music, and did I forget to mention some sweet giveaways? So come by The Lab in Costa Mesa this Sunday, May 15th from 11am to 6pm. Make sure to RSVP before the show to get in for just $5 bucks. For more info on Thread visit their website here.

Here is a sneak peek at Supadupa Vtg's SS 2011 collection of pure vintage amazingness. I have blogged about Supadupa before and this probably won't be the last time. What I love about Supadupa is how each and every piece has such a uniqueness about it. There are a couple pieces I have my heart set on already. One of my favorites is this pastel tribal print poncho... I can already imagine all the endless outfit possiblities *sigh* Be sure to make your way over to www.supadupavtg.com and stay tuned for the launch of their SS 2011 collection. We all know everybody and their uncle has a Facebook so it's no excuse not to become a fan of Supadupa Vtg on Facebook, and for all you Tweeters out there make sure to follow Supadupa on Twitter. I have a feeling this collection is going to be another hit and the reason for needing a third closet.
