Before Marilyn, there was Jean Harlow, the original “Blonde Bomshell.” She left her mark on Hollywood and pop culture with her signature platinum locks and “laughing vamp” persona.

Harlow rose to fame in the 1930s and was labeled a screen siren for her revealing costumes and quick witted dialogue. Her signature towheaded look inspired a platinum craze with many fans dying their hair to match hers.


During her short ten year career, Jean Harlow established herself as one of the silver screen’s most captivating actresses and was a key inspirational figure for both Marilyn Monroe and Madonna. Ms. Harlow, tonight we “Vogue” in your honor.

UV Destination Getaway: Los Angeles


Summer is here and it’s getting warmer every day. There is no better time than to pack your bags and visit sunny Southern California! Los Angeles is known for gorgeous sunshine, beautiful beaches, and a casual, relaxed attitude towards fashion. Grab your sunblock and favorite sunnies and come with us to fabulous Hollywood!


Mixing prints is a must for a cute SoCal inspired look, especially Los Angeles where whimsical summer style is celebrated. The key to perfecting a mixed pattern is to find a uniting color that ties the outfit together. Effortlessly stylish, we paired the light blue denim butterfly print bustier with our pink floral bahama mama peplum skirt. Perfect for daytime shopping on Melrose and Hollywood sightseeing, this look easily transitions for dinner on the beach.


Topped with a structural bow, our champagne patent leather peep toe bow heels are the perfect neutral shoe for your holiday in Hollywood. Crafted with a four inch heel that is cute and comfortable for all day wear, these fabulous heels are finished with a cutaway vamp and darling peep toes–what better way to show off your new pedi?



Complete your California look with cute vintage-inspired accessories. Our pink 50′s style neck scarf is a versatile accessory that can be worn around your neck or as a hair scarf. Of course you can’t visit sunny Los Angeles without a pair of fabulous sunglasses! The champagne riveted starlet sunglasses add a touch of pin-up styled fabulousness to your wardrobe!

If you can’t make it to LA this summer, you can still bring out your inner California girl with a cute mixed print look. Have fun mixing and matching and create a look that is vibrant, bold, and uniquely you!
