This week I opened an Etsy shop, The Disco Emporium, for the vintage clothes I’ve been thrifting out here in Los Angeles and I’m really excited to share it with you today!  Thumbnail photos of all available items are up on our shop page and I will continue to update that space as new additions are added to Etsy.

Below are a few styling inspiration photos for three of the available items.  I will be sharing more along these lines on Instagram @thediscoemporium.  I hope you’ll follow along!

Since Lauren has been here I have really been trying to make our house a home.  It can be hard because neither Albert or I really like to get “things.”  We like to live a simple and minimal life.  We struggle with purchasing things unless we REALLY love them and in turn we end up mostly with random items and hand-me-downs.  There is also a bit of an identity crisis that comes up when trying to decorate your home.  You really have to ask yourself, who am I?  What do I like?  So far, there have been a couple of things I have seen that have kept me inspired and ready to chug along with the process.

I will keep you all posted on the apartment transformation! It is the little adjustments that count.

I had a conversation last week with a woman who studies feng shui.  We were waiting together at a bus stop and struck up a conversation that started as small talk, then moved on to all sorts of deeper topics.  While we were talking about her study of feng shui, she said something that has really stuck with me.  She said that there needs to be some element of imperfection in a space, otherwise a ‘perfect’ energy will just continue to flow without disruption, thereby becoming boring or stagnant. That was the jist of it anyway, and it makes so much sense to me.  The most compelling art and music always has at least one element that breaks the rules, and the most interesting people and relationships are never completely perfect.  We wouldn’t want them to be.  It isn’t a matter of attaining perfection but rather of creating harmony.

We are super excited to announce the grand opening of our new online store, The Disco Emporium.  Incorporating a shop component to Sister Disco has been a longtime desire of ours and we hope you will like what you see!  As a starting point, the shop will be primarily stocked with hand selected items offered through affiliate programs.  In the coming months, we’ll be expanding to include more unique items from independent retailers.  If you are interested in partnering with us to sell your products through our storefront, drop us a line!

perfume fragrance flower

This morning, as I walked out of the subway, an old familiar scent passed me by: Sunflowers By Elizabeth Arden.  Sunflowers was my first perfume.  I must have gotten it when I was around 14 years old.  It smelled fresh and happy; wearing it made me feel older and more sophisticated than I was.

A decade or so later, I found my second scent: Stella McCartney’s Stella.  This is not to say that I wore Sunflowers for a whole decade, rather I wasn’t really one to wear perfume in my late teens and early twenties.  But I received a free roll-on bottle of Stella at a fashion PR event my friend was working as one of her first jobs in New York and I adopted the scent as my own.  Its smell reminds me of my early days in New York, living in the East Village and going to parties that lasted til sunrise.  Now, yet another decade later, I have a new fragrance: APOTHIA’s IF.  I love this scent so much and can’t imagine ever moving on from it.  But chances are, in another ten years, the smell of IF will remind me of of myself now I can’t yet classify.
