House of Petro Zillia: The Next Chapter!

Last July, I started working for not only one of the most amazingly talented people I've ever met, but one of the best human beings I have ever come across. We refer to Nony as our fearless leader, not only because her designs know no boundaries, but because she pushes US beyond what we thought were our own personal limitations. She encourages me to write, and our interns to dream big! She inspires the world to step out of it's blk and gray protective shell,and drape ourselves in a menagerie of bright colors,and to push the limits as to the weight in jewelry one should wear! lol " If you're not jingling, you're not wearin enough!"

Nony's studio is located right next door to the store, so I've had the benefit of seeing the process of all these amazing Petro Zillia originals come to life! She even let me help her with one, but it's not my gift. The pressure of working with silk...well, if a silk top were $1000, you're getting a deal! Cutting silk is no joke! I think I got 3 gray hairs that afternoon. lol Never again!

I've seen her, with a few buttons, a couple tassles, an a couple feet of thread, make the raddest dress! Ok,I'm exaggerating a smidge..but,she really is the Mcgyver of the fashion world, as far as I'm concerned! She'll find inspiration in a trim, button, or a swatch of fabric, an next thing I know, there's a new collection in the store by the end of the day! She's all around inspiring! I've learned, if you have a idea, run with it! The only failure, is NOT trying!

So, you may or may not know, we're closing our doors at the end of this month. BUT never fear, our website will still be goin strong an kickin fashion ass! When you need that something special, that's exceptionally RAD, you can find it at www.shoppetrozillia.com ! The rainbow medley of skills this woman has is redic! Clothes!Jewelry!Handbags! Not to mention, she makes a mean vanilla latte! So,this isn't goodbye, Petro Zillia will be front and center more than ever!!! Right now, we're so proud of the Petro Zillia collaboration with Forever 21! It's the talk of the town!People are excited to shop it,an you can pay no designer a greater compliment! With that said,if ever you look up into the sky and see a random rainbow, just know that means our fearless leader is at it again! Hurry up, an get to a computer! Click on "NEW" on our site, an prepare to have your mind blown!

These are just a few pics of her latest and my fave Petro originals! I can't wait to see what's comin up next! Stay tuned for more radness and good times!!! xx


Onch Movement's Eat It All Launch Party! A Buffet of Cuteness!

We just had the events of all events, as far as I'm concerned, it embodied everything I'm obsessed with! Funness! Raddness! And CANDY!!! On Thur, Jan. 27th, Onch Movement mooooved us with his amazing accessories collection! It was the party of parties, hosted by one of our favesies, her hotness Allison Melnick! If you've ever had an amazing night out, at a club in hollywood,chances are it was her party!!!

Let me tell you a bit about Onch...he's about the most precious star angel, you'll ever meet! He lives in a world of vibant colors, easy breezy attitude, an cuteness! Think, a real life Hello Kitty character. Well, Onchie brought us into his world for just one night, an now I know why he's always smiling! Mini gumball machines and candy apples were strewn from the ceiling, and the tree in our yard! We had displays with live lady bugs and butterflies( we gently released them after the party, so don't get all excited lol ), colorful floral arrangements throughout, and a CANDY BARRRR!!!! Snickers, Almond Joy, Lemon Heads, Red Vines..you know, the good stuff! Twinkies, Ho hos, an Zingers! If it was sugary sweet, and edible, we had it! And unfortunately, I ate it. (insert green face) We've talked about this, I have no self control when it comes to yummy foods...

You would think, that would be enough of a snack selection for this chipmunk, but noooo... I also spent a significant amount of time drooling over Onch's "Eat it All" Collection. I fantasized about eating the multi-colored, chocolate covered pretzels! Mmmmm..I could almost smell the flavors of the lollipop charm necklaces. The pizza necklaces, well...were pizza! I don't need a reason to wanna eat pizza! Soft serve ice cream rings, with and without cherries...I could write a whole nother blog on the fond memories soft serve ice cream bring up!

Soooo the mini cakes by Lil Rae Cakes , were most definitely a problem. They were delightful little balls of happiness! I think I ate a whole cake worth (sorry,Lil Rae lol ) Who can resist an adorably dressed cutie, an pastel colored baked goodies? Not, this girl! Though my hips sometimes wish I would! Unfortunately for them ,I'm runnin this ship, so bring it!!!

We were also lucky enough to have some of our really great friends show up an support! The ever so sweet Nicky Hilton, was on deck, showing love to her friends Onch an Nony! I also spied with my big brown eyes, rocker wives, Josie Stevens and Susan Holmes! And the one I'm really geeked about, Charlene Tilton of Dallas fame!!! Who Shot J.R.??? March 21, 1980, that was the burning question around the world!!! Yes, I know I'm dating myself! Lol

An just when the night couldn't get anymore precious, Onch gave us a live performance!!!! All of a sudden you heard a crowd yell " FLASH MOB!!!", an cutee girls dressed like food fairies, began shakin what their mama gave em, alongside T.J. Fantini an Onch! GE-DOR-A-BLE!!! The night busted at the seams with good times, an a great time was had by all! This will definitely be one that is talked about for a looong time!
