Years ago on a trip to Los Angeles, I happened upon one of the coolest stores I have ever walked into. Now, anybody who knows me, knows that I have been to many stores around the globe in my lifetime. Shopaholics of the world unite!!!!!!! The store that I am speaking of is Show Pony located in the artsy section of Echo Park. When you enter Show Pony you feel as though you stepped into a fairyland, gorgeous hand made clothing and jewelry, all made by local artisans and designers....If I could describe it, I would say it resembles the DIY style of Stevie Nicks circa Rumors album meets the GTO's. (For the record, the GTO'S were Frank Zappa's brilliant creation, that deserves it's own post) The lady behind the magic is Kime Buzzelli. Not only is Kime a visionary in the fashion world, she is also an extremely talented illustrator and painter. This month she landed the cover story for Flaunt Magazine. I highly suggest you pick up a copy, and the next time you visit LA, make Show Pony a priority on your must sees.....
