A few weeks ago, I had the best time setting up the Feminasty Pop Up Shop at the launch party of LA Mother!
LA Mother is sorta the best idea ever. I love how they describe their business: “LA Mother is the first business of its type dedicated purely to the advancement of women in the creative and business sectors. We have created a safe space to provide a platform for women in our growing community.”
Basically, how could we NOT be part of that? LA Mother’s central hub is in Hollywood, surrounded as much by crazy traffic as by hills and houses balanced on stilts. It’s feminist message is magic.
My friend Celina and I had a blast, hanging out, sipping mimosas, and feeling the vibe of creativity. LA Mother created a social media campaign called “Not a Dirty Word”, which invites folks to reclaim the words hurled at them in order to make them feel bad. Mine was “Yoko”. Celina’s was “boyish”. All of the contributions were installed on a large part of one of the walls for the opening.
Maybe the best part? Meeting so many rad people and taking selfies with them! HELL-O!
Celina’s Girl Gang shirt was DIY-ed with tulle sleeves and a crop top chop. How epic is this photo of her on the bed at the party? PURE. FUCKING. JOY!
Big thanks from the bottom of my heart to everyone who came out that night and especially those that picked up a shirt! I’d love to see what you do with them– make sure to tag #Feminasty when you put your selfie up on Instagram!
