I've been obsessed with Shop Sweet Threads instagram recently and realized that the shop was located in Long Beach so we HAD to drop in. OMG, the experience of this shop is so perfect!  The design of the shop was not exactly how I thought it would be (in a good way!), as I'm so used to shopping in the mall (yuck i know..) but I was nostalgic of all the vintage toys and absolutely LOVED how cute the shop was!!  Zooey woke up from her nap immediately and wanted to play with all the vintage toys.. 

 Since moving back to LA..I thought that it was going to be so hard to find Zooey cute kids clothes like I was able to find in Tokyo..but after being introduced to Ultraviolet Kids, it opened the gates to a never-ending discovery of so many fashionable brands made in LA and all these super cute online stores!! 

This is the vintage section...suuuuper cute!!!

 um melissa!!!

 my friend's brand TINY WHALES is sold here. 

  #babyzooey got a little carried away with choosing things to play with and I felt so bad for not paying attention to her since I was too busy gasping at how cute everything was.. But I guess she was having too much fun playing with her favorite items and the owner Shella, was so nice about it.  Zooey has good taste doesn't she?

Pink & Green shoes: Native Shoes
White hanging thing: Peacock & Co
Beanie: Tiny Whales
Moccassins on her hands (lol): Moccs by Robin

HOW ADORABLE IS THIS VAN!!!!!!!!!!!!! Amazing I tell you...

If anyone is near Long Beach, this shop definately deserves a visit.  They also sell online if you don't live too close.  I was told that they will be moving about a block away soon into a bigger space and I'm so excited about what they will be doing to the place.  But in the meantime...

  HI AMY!!!!!


The last time I came to THE WELL was for RILAKKUMA...which was quite an experience...I actually enjoyed how small and intimate this event was..I heard it was super packed at the afterparty which started after we left.  It was good to see old friends and reconnect with others.  This is why I love going to events, because I just love running into people and finding out we have mutual friends.  I know I'm getting kinda old for this..and I'm semi-retired from the party scene..but I really want to keep trying out this LA scene a little bit longer before I can't take Zooey out anymore!  But I dunno, from the looks of it, she might be adjusting even better than I thought. 

Anyhow, so about Kelsi Dagger.....

Very cute shoes, and I have seen the clogs coming back in.  But I have to say my most favorite bag was the collaboration backpack by THE WELL x KDB.  It reminded me of the heavy square backpacks the kids in Japan would wear in Elementary school...I sometimes imagined if I ever wanted Zooey to have to have to carry such a heavy thing but as we are back in the states now, I guess I will be missing those days!

Zooey was a trooper and again, the center of attention.. She's growing up so fast and adjusting to these kind of situations so well.  I realize that I'm obsessed with putting her hair in a top knot..but that's because it's at a weird length and only looks great down when she first wakes up...and I think I need to dress her super girly for it to look right.. Welp, that's it for now..
