HAPPY SUNDAY

 

Two things that are making us infinitely happy on this fine Sunday: the above gif, and this article from NPR (you can listen to it, too) on the use of NASA satellites aiding in the possible discovery of ancient Egyptian pyramids buried under sand for thousands of years.  The connection between space technology and the cosmically aligned and inspired pyramids just feels so right…kind of like how wearing our Pyramid hologram necklace does… (MORE HOLOGRAMS IN THE SHOP SOON, PROMISE)

Refinery 29 :: We’re a “Hot Sale”

We’re not ones to brag…..but seriously.  If Refinery 29 says we’re a hot sale, you should come to the flea market on Sunday.  Don’t you want to be decked out in “gorgeous,” “head-turning” wares?

THE COVEN Hosts: Space 15 Twenty Flea Market

We’re hosting the Space 15 Twenty flea market this week and it’s going to be bomb.  Get your nails did with Kleur, slip your feet into some handmade leather and beaded sandals from Mumbi of Long Beach, and of course, stop by our section for some vintage steals and all the things you’ve eyed on our website, but wanted to try on in person.  CBabyWags will be holding the music down.  And if you need a little pick me up, stop by the Hollywood farmer’s market for a bit, but make your way back!  There are cute things to be bought!

Whitney Houston :: Monster Edition

There was an article that intrigued us a while ago about the surprisingly intense and sometimes deadly competetive world of kareoke in the Philippines.  As a follow-up to our conversation about said article, a friend just e-mailed us this video….it starts kind of slow, but stick with it until the end. WE PROMISE. IT’S WORTH EVERY TERRIFYING SECOND. Extra points for the goulish sass.

Glass Jewelz

For quite some time, I’ve been holding on to a box full of beautiful, 8mm-thick glass. While having way too much fun photographing the glass and outlining the shapes in a sketchpad, it became clear that this was a new series of jewelz. The new necklaces and bracelets will be available at Space1520 on Sunday, May 22nd, and through the online store at the end of the month! Below are some photos of the glass and the silver casing samples. Stay tuned for more previews of our new items!

LOVING IT PAYS OFF :: THE PRINCE SHOW

THE COVEN took a field trip to see the Purple One this weekend in a voyage that proved that Loving It always pays off. We began our journey in the nosebleed section, minds blown (but not really, Prince, you know…) by the stage design and the appearance of Sheila E on the drums.

Loving it to the Nth and making every old person in the vicinity uncomfortable with our wild dancing, we soon heard the words “No photos at the tables”. We thought, “Hand-selected for simply loving it? Is this possible?”, as we were ushered down what seemed like an infinite number of stairs to be deposited at the tip of The Artist Formerly Known As stage.  “Do not stop dancing,” they instructed.  As if we needed to be told. PRINCE NEEDED US.

What followed were beautiful clouds of confetti, swarovski sparkled pants, threats of being kicked out when we were caught with camera phones in hand, and the Purple One’s perfect ass of steel within a few feet of our grasp.  When Doves Cried, we cried.

Next to us was a fledgling boy band, also loving it.  We have no idea what their music sounds like, but since they nicely complied with our demands to pose with the “NO PHOTOS” sign, the least we can do is tell you that they are called Radio for the People.

 Radio for the People

After one failed attempt to find the girl who had invited us to the Prince afterparty and one Myspace bathroom photo sesh, we headed back to COVEN headquarters for our own afterparty.  We must have inadvertently summoned Michael through the Ouija board we turned over to use as a bar on the floor…drinks never tasted so good.

Moral of the story: when you’re loving it, the universe can’t help but love you back.

 Waiting for another encore. Yes, they are breaking down the stage.
