Obsession: By Terry

Posted by The E on April 11, 2013

By Terry

Terry de Gunzburg started as a Studio Makeup Artist out of luck for Vogue because no one else was available for a photo session. After her first shoot, she kept on focusing on the essentials and became trusted by some of the biggest fashion photographers. Eventually, Terry later went on to becom Yves Saint Laurent’s International Makeup Designer, and in 2000, she went on to create her own makeup brand, “By Terry”. Focusing on the creative concept, we love that Terry approaches her beauty expertise like a Fashion House products their ready-to-wear- line. She comes up with creative strategies and sets her standards of perfection like Haute Couture and then sends them to a cutting edge laboratory which produces cutting edge formulas based on the purest pigments. One of our favorite products is her intensive multi-active moisturizer. Our skin feels and looks amazing when we use it! Here’s also a great video to hear more about Terry’s creative concept.

Obsession: Vagabond Grillyard

Posted by The E on April 9, 2013

Bacon Bleu Burger

We became immediately obsessed when we tried Vagabond Grillyard for the first time. Gourmet burgers have definitely been trending in the Los Angeles area, but Vagabond Grillyard is simply unique. They founders themselves are literally vagabonds: no restaurant, no food truck, no reservations — just themselves, the griddle and some amazing burgers that come off the griddle. You’ll find Vagabond all over the Eastside of Los Angeles, currently they have “residencies” at Famous Bar, Eagle Rock Brewery and Verdugo Bar.  The meat is cooked just right, the brioche bun is fluffy and the aioli and onions add amazing flavor. If you are ever over on the Eastside, go join the vagabonds (Westsiders, we promise it’s worth the trek).

Coachella 2013 in Teo Shorts

Posted by The E on April 3, 2013


It’s that time again when people from all over the country gather in the middle of the dessert to showcase their awesome fashion! Oh, and probably listen to some indie band performances. In order to battle the 100-degree weather, you definitely have to be smart about choosing what to wear!

With Coachella just around the corner, we put together an outfit with our spring favorite Teo Shorts.  Pair the denim shorts with a loose forest green top (can even pull over your shoulder) to create a fun urban look, or go with the floral lace top for something a little more hipster!  If you really want to master the hipster/hobo look, pull over the elastic headband and voilà- you look cute and your hair is in place!  Complete the outfit with over-size shades and blinged out jewelry!

Shorts: HABITUAL Tate short in Onyx

Ring: Jennifer Zeuner Jewelry Block Love Ring

Bracelet: Michael Kors Skorpios Bracelet

Sunglasses: Thierry Lasry Milfy Sunglasses in Dark Havana

Headband: Deep Gurnani Gold & Turquoise Applique Headband

Tops: Free People American Pie Top in Camo (right), BB Dakota Omni Crochet Top (right)

Shoes: Sam Edelman Gable Strappy Flat Sandals

One band we are looking forward to seeing is the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who last performed at Coachella in 2007.  We love “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie”!

Made in the USA: By Boe

Posted by The E on April 1, 2013

By Boe

Established in 2000, By Boe, is a cult jewelry and accessories brand that began as an intimate retail shop in Manhattan.  Due to the designer’s uncommon take on architectural and nature-inspired pendants, cuffs, and earrings, this company immediately captured the attention of jewelry guru’s all over the world!   By Boe became so popular that it had no choice but to expand with a larger retail outpost.  Judging by how vintage and fierce the pieces look, who wouldn’t want to get their hands on these? Today, By Boe continues to thrive and expand in new and exciting markets such as in Japan, Singapore, Greece and many more cities.

Our favorite part of this designer’s collection is that it’s handmade right here in the USA (New York City to be exact)!  The jewelry is created using the perfect combination of 14-kt gold-filled sterling silver and a mix of new and vintage materials from around the world.  Below are some more fab items up for grabs on By Boe’s website including earrings, bracelets, and rings.

How adorable is this vintage By Boe “Delicate Square” necklace pictured above? For the minimalist at heart, the tiny square brushed metal plate is a perfect detail to complete this super cute accessory!
