Vintage is better in black & white
I would say close to half of my wardrobe is vintage. There are lots of local Los Angeles vintage shops I have frequented over the years, including my go-to venders at the flea markets. But nothing is more exciting than finding some retro gems while traveling. Every city has their own distinct style and it’s fun to sift through their time capsules of the past. During a three year world tour I did performing in 55 countries, my routine for days off would be to find the best vegan or vegetarian friendly restaurants (South America was nearly impossible for that task), hit the guitar shops, record shops and local vintage and thrift shops. This dress in particular I found in a German town on the French border at a thrift shop for 6 Euro. It’s one of those pieces that has been hanging in my closet waiting for the right moment, or maybe a slight alteration. The moment was musing for this tin type shoot.
Happy thrifting, bunnies!
Clare Bare x Boho Bunnie
There is one lingerie brand that I could absolutely live in, and that would be Clare Bare. Clare finds the cutest vintage fabrics and with her magic makes them into the sexiest, most comfortable, limited edition works of art. I’m slowly building my collection and am striving for a complete overhaul of my skivvies into Clare Bare originals. It wouldn’t be a Clare Bare shoot without the third member of the team, the incredible Angela Izzo. Our little getaway to the Madonna Inn gave us endless inspiration for these looks. True fantasyland!
Stay beautiful and inspired, bunnies!

Fear and Loathing at The English Hotel
While there was no mesaclin or sheets of high power blotter acid (just your typical lychee martini) I felt like I was channeling my best Raoul Duke in the lobby of Las Vegas’s English Hotel. Ashley Myers and I set out for our typical adventure day of cocktailing and photographing. Ashley had been wanting to check out this new hotel, and when we arrived the owner generously welcomed us to shoot and even offered us a tour of the rooms. The plush orange velvet couldn’t be a more perfect backdrop for my $7 vintage sequin cocktail dress which no one has wanted to alter (apparently sequins kill sewing machines so a few safety pins did the trick for this shoot) and my newly acquired vintage yellow cowboy hat from Wellema Hat Co. Inspired by my current musician crush, Laura Leezy, I went full power clash with these colors.
Bunnie imitating Bunnie!
