One of my all time favorite boutiques in Downtown Los Angeles, Flamingo Vintage, closed for good a week or two ago and despite my sadness this is my homage of sorts to one of the coolest stores LA had. The store was an incredibly well curated mix of bright colored items a-la-Holly-Golightly, both new and vintage, and this was one of my go-to spots to hunt for items made by some of the coolest LA based brands like Motel and J.O.A Los Angeles. The hot pink top I’ve got on here is a J.O.A Los Angeles creation and despite the fact that usually the only color you’ll ever see on me is my lipstick, I am head over heels obsessed with this top. Not only is it just an awesome color, it’s got a great structured fit to it, and a cool cut out in the back (which is a trend we’ll be seeing a lot of soon). Sure pairing it with pleather pants makes it a bit of an evening outfit but that’s what a top like this is good for. Ladies be on the hunt for structured tops and dresses with cutouts, it’s the perfect item for Summer, and Flamingo Vintage… you’ll be missed!
