Lovely Bones

I’ve been seeing an influx of dinosaur bones and other skeletal images in the fashion industry lately. The first thing to catch my eye last year was this gold dinosaur necklace by Tatty Devine. I thought it was amazing! Then I brought in a few “bone” images on T-shirts and tanks and the customers really dug them. (Pun intended, but I’m also still half asleep, so have a little mercy on me.) The flamingo pic is a post we did on Instagram a few weeks ago from the boutique.

Anyway, Louis Vuitton just released this dinosaur sketch of what their windows will look like for fall. Woot! I’m so excited because we have more Jurassic-inspired items on order for Roadkill Ranch and, our featured artist for October (Matt Brady) makes handmade jewelry from the bones of (real) tiny animals. It’s creepy-cool! But we love it!

Join us on Instagram under Roadkill_ranch or Facebook under Roadkill Ranch for more pics and up-to-the-minute style and event info.

Have a great week and keep those bones strong!

Awesome Artists

As a boutique owner, I tend to wear many hats. From  buyer to book keeper to merchandiser, the work never ends. One of my favorite hats to wear is Art Walk host. It’s that one time a month where we join with the community to support local artists. We keep the store open late on a Friday night and have an “Art Party” with the coolest peeps around.

This month we have the amazing John Sollom. His character speaks for itself through the above photos. His show is all about “Classic Cool Skaters” and it’s going to be awesome.

Also showing her unique,  one-of-a-kind jewelry designs is the lovely Susan Hancock.

And, our faithful friend and house musician Mr. Guy Nelson will be playing live.

If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll join us for a fun night of Art within the community. Stop by and say hi before I have to switch my hat to “cleaning lady”.

Fullerton’s Art Walk

I love my job!

I am so incredibly blessed to be surrounded by awesome and talented people. Since I’m on the committee for the 3rd annual Art Walk celebration in Fullerton, I’m excited to see the fruits of our labor come to fruition tomorrow. Representing my store (Roadkill Ranch & Boutique) is one of the most amazing artists I’ve ever met, Mr. Tom Vadakan. Aside from numerous works and exhibits,  he was recently commissioned to do an illustration character by the crew on the set of the upcoming Star Trek movie. It was a gift to their director J.J. Abrams.

Also representing Roadkill Ranch is the super talented Dano Forte. He is a one man band with a huge following. His act “The Juke Joint Freak Show” is so incredible that he recently opened for Social Distortion three nights in a row at The House of Blues in Anaheim.

If you live in the area, I hope you will stop by the Museum Center in Fullerton tomorrow night from 6pm to 10pm and check out all of the incredible artists and musicians that will be performing.

13 Calaveras

Whenever we change out our windows, we try to keep the Ranch side different from the boutique side. Well, because, they’re different. Our friend (and local artist) Leonard Fiedororwicz is an amazing window dresser and an awesome artist. Last year was the first time in 18 years that we gave an artist (Leonard) complete creative control over our window displays. So, I guess you could say that Leonard made history with the  “Fun House” window, a circus theme with an edge that turned out incredible.

This year he’s back with “The Day of the Dead” celebration. And, since Leonard is our featured artist this month for Fullerton’s Art Walk at Roadkill Ranch, we gave him the control over our windows again (it’s not an easy thing to do when you have 4 creatively, intense Roadkill Girls).

His exhibit is titled “13 Calaveras” and he has created 13 skulls to be featured. The 2 largest skulls are already hanging in the windows and they look fab! Each skull is made from wood, hand-painted, numbered and signed. And, they are all reasonably priced (along with some of his one-of-a-kind collectibles).

The rest of the exhibit will be on display Friday from 6pm to 10pm. So, if you’re in the area, please stop by and see his amazing show, check out our windows, and pick up a skull or two.

Leonard’s friend  “El Mysterioso” will be entertaining us with his phenomenal, one-man-band Mariachi show.

And, rumor has it…there might be sangria floating around.

“Fun House” window by Leonard Fiedorowicz, 2011. History in the making.

P.S. When snooty vendors ask me for pics of my brick and mortar store (to make sure that I really do have a store), I send them this pic  and say, “Is this OK?”

Steampunk Vlog

Here’s my Vlog for the week, I hope you like it. Artist Janis Logsdon gives us a little insight on the design and function behind the “Steampunk” movement. Neo-Victorian fashion and icons mixed with modern-day style create an industrial, romantic look with an emphasis on time travel. Enjoy!
