A few things are, Pretty Genius. One thing for example, my dog Chloe, or as some refer to her, “Scrappy” – she’s pretty genius. Another thing, the oversized tribal influenced maxi skirt IÂ am wearing, pretty genius. And lastly, the new company formed from out of Style Section LA’s Erin Weinger and Renee Shaab –Â Pretty Genius- Â a traveling vintage pop-up shop that will blow your mind in style and price.
The best thing about Pretty Genius, is the product and concept withholds the name. Weinger and Shaab geniously source vintage pieces from places you and I wouldn’t even know about, or even have time to go to, then bring them to us vintage loving fashionistas at an insane price! You may have heard of their exclusive private sales in their homes, or read about them in the LA Times. Now, they are official. Â I scored this skirt from one of their private vintage pop-up shops along with 4 other pieces amounting to a total of $75. Â You’ll be hearing and seeing much more of these ladies, first starting this weekend at A Current Affair.

I was happy to attend Christian Loubotin’s 20th Anniversary & Book Launch at Barneys New York, Beverly Hills. Along with the amazing man himself who has impacted almost every girl’s wardrobe with his signature red sole, the event was also hosted byÂ Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Lucy Liu, Monet Mazur, Cameron Silver and DitaVonÂ Teese.
Rosie Huntington Whiteley had on some hot black leather pants as she sat on the couch in the corner, she was probably hunger & grumpy since she hasn’t eaten for days. Â Dita Von Teese bounced around the room like a butterfly and looked as she throughoughly enjoyed the event! I, sipped on champagne, chatted with my girls and stalked all the fabulous shoes min the room!
