Say What?!

It’s going to be a T-shirt kind of fall this season. And I’m so excited for our new merchandise to hit the store. While we were in Las Vegas last week, we met with Wild Fox. The luxury clothing company is a favorite among celebrities and high-end boutiques. They are extremely picky about who they sell to, so when they approved Roadkill Ranch & Boutique as their destination retailer in Fullerton, we were ecstatic!

The clothing is high-quality and Wild Fox is known for their graphic T-shirts with fun messages. The above pics are what we bought for the store and the styles are slated to hit Roadkill Ranch & Boutique in early October.

Several clothing companies are doing message T-shirts. So look for fun sayings, bold messages and one-worders. We bought a lot of T-shirts with music related messages and quirky blurbs. But our favorite line was Wild Fox.

We are so honored to be a distributor. One vendor paid us a huge compliment by saying, “You guys are like the Fred Segal of Orange County.” It made my day and made me think of all of our awesome customers who have helped build the store throughout the years. I love you all and hope you love what’s coming in store for you as much as I do.

Feeling grateful,

Julie

Art Skool

During our buy trip to Vegas last week, we met so many incredibly, talented people. As we were scouting the Pool Trade Show, we stumbled across this group of artists from Art Skool Clothing, and were immediately drawn to their charismatic energy and love of art. After bonding over designs, we found out they too are from Orange County, grew up in Anaheim and currently live in Yorba Linda and LA. Such a small world.

The artists take their own original pantings and transfer the images onto fashion T-shirts and totes. The T-shirts are not your basic Tees; they are cropped, slouched, off-the-shoulder and boast beautiful creations. They offer limited runs and the work speaks for itself. It’s such a fresh take on fashion.

And, since we participate in The Fullerton Art Walk every month, we’re trying to “woo” them to make a special guest appearance at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique for one of our shows. After all, they are locals. Wink!

Check out their website for awesome wearable art at http://www.artskoolclothing.com and stay tuned with Roadkill Ranch & Boutique for upcoming info about fashion and the arts.

Pictured left to right is Eric La Barr, Jay Costelo, and Natalie Marie Ames. We love this energetic, passionately, creative team and wish them tons of success.

Dear Marc,

JAWESOME!

Blonde-Jawstumblr_lmecojQK3t1qc6nzfo1_1280photo

I know what you’re thinking; it’s not “Freaky Friday Fashion” day yet, so why is she posting a transvestite in a Jaws bustier? That picture was taken last year at The Blondes runway show and since then, we’ve seen a resurrection of  “Jaws” merchandise in the fashion world.  From shark tooth jewelry to bloody mouths, it’s all about the 1975 summer horror flick that kept a lot of people from enjoying the beach that year.

Look for the original Jaws poster and shark mouths on T-shirts, tanks and totes, and twisted humor like this “Little Mermaid” swimsuit. The bottom picture is what we have now at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique, so get your cult-like vibe on this summer and dare to sport the mindless, eating machine. According to Steven Spielberg, “It’s like God created the devil and gave him JAWS!!”

I’ve attached the 1975 trailer from Jaws for your viewing pleasure. Watch at your own risk, it’s rather biting!

Queens Rocket

Dear Monday, I’m ready to kick your ass!

I survived another trade show in Vegas last week (MAGIC) and it was incredible! The vendors, the merchandise, and the creative vibe was all insanely wonderful! I met a lot of new designers and bought so many great items for the store. I can hardly wait until it all starts rolling in.

One of my favorite new designers is Jon Fulton Adams. His screen print T-shirts are an edgy mix of fairy tale whimsy with an element of hilarious surprise. And, he had a fully decked out “Queen” representing in the booth. How could  I not stop and take pics? You all know how I love theatrical people and their hijinks. Anyway, after we chatted for a while, (and filmed a video) Jon promised that he’d turn his men’s shirts into women’s shirts just for Roadkill Ranch & Boutique! (OK, so a few other buyers were pushing for the same thing, but hey…I made him promise! ) Woot! Woot!

It’s good to be back and I wish I could tell you more about my trip. But, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
