Flower Children Only- Kitty Crowns

Photography by Krissy Saleh

I can't let  2015 come to an end with out telling you about Flower Children Only.   Kitty ears have been the rage for many teenagers and women in 2015.  Ariana Grande kitty crown selflies have been adorable as well as Gigi Hadid sporting a pair of Meow Crown Green Ears  in her oh so amazing adidas outfit. Can you say obsessed?  Michelle Madonna has taken kitty and mouse ears to the next level.   Made out of beautiful roses, daisies, and sunflowers you feel like you are truly wearing a crown when wearing these hand made pieces.  I loved wearing my Meow Crown X-Mas Ears to a few holiday parties. My Meow Crown Black Ears have come in handy for many events and I have even worn them to dance classes.

This company is based out of New York . Every piece is unique and I must say that Michelle has become the Queen of the Kitty Crown.  Your closet is not the same without one of these accessories.

Take a hint  because Coachella is coming in 2016 and her Halos are amazing.  I can't wait for her to  custom design a Halo for one of my Coachella Days.   Shop the look at  www.flowerchildrenonly.com   and tell Michelle that  Larsen sent you. You can also visit her  on Instagram @flowerchildrenonly.

Peace Out Flower Babies,
Larsen

#Inmyskiniwin takes over NYFW- Shaun Ross



The  #inmyskiniwin Campaign started by Shaun Ross is trending on social media.  This power model has starred in many fashion campaigns and appeared in music videos for Beyone and Katy Perry.  He just debuted  his new collection at  NYFW and he is not going away any time soon.  As a teen, he  has become a role model for me and many others that have different skin colors which make them targets for harassing and bullying .

Shaun  is making  changes in the way beauty is defined in our society . The #inmyskiniwin hash tag  has almost 10,000 posts on instagram alone.  Shaun says, "If one feels confident when looking in the mirror, then the negative words of others don't sting as much. Beauty is you and what you make from your confidence in your  own perfectly imperfect body." Now these are powerful words and so  to all you teens out there take notice. 

Above is my contribution to the campaign. This picture and concept was developed by Louis Flores www.louiseflores.com and styled by Ambrose Respicio.  You can purchase this Tee of Shaun's saying "Nothing is Impsossible"  at www.inmyskiniwin.com. Take a picture in your tee, post the pic to instagram and hashtag #inmyskiniwin .  Lets all become confident teens and show the world that different is beautiful .

#Beyou with Love,
Larsen

Back to School with Free City Supershop





2012-04-03-Sarah_McGiven_FightForYrWrite_Free_City_tracksuits_sweat_pants_track_bottoms_joggers.jpg

Free City sweats are my go to choice for back to school.   Founded by Nina Garduno, she has created sweats,  jackets, and tees that are comfy and fashion fun.   Inspired by the non conformist lifestyle, each Free City piece is unique. 

I decided to start my freshman year in High School with a couple of their sweats.  The sweats  have a style to them that can be worn on school days with your favorite sneakers.  I have also dressed them up with fun platform shoes for a day out with friends.  Being a dancer, I love wearing them to classes and they are a great look for dance auditions.

The Free City brand is made very well.  The price range is over 100 dollars, but the luxurious pieces last forever and there are a variety of colors to choose from for every style preference.

You can see the sweats on most of your FAV celebs. The Free City Super Shop is a must see location off  of Highland in Los Angeles.  You can also check out their amazing website at
www.freecitysupershop.com .  Join me in the cozy movement and invest in a Free City piece... you won't regret it.

Peace Out Free City,

Larsen

I love dance, but style  as a dancer is unique for everyone.  I like to find things that represent me while I dance . I recently had the chance to model Bobby Newberry's new Tees "I AM." This t-shirt is edgy and very comfortable. The quote on the back, "Live Fast Free Your Mind Enjoy the Struggle and be Grateful" tells it all. 

Bobby Newberry  is a multi talented singer, songwriter, and dancer breaking into the music scene.  He has great fashion sense and this tee can also be worn for a stylish street wear look. You can purchase this tee at www.etsy.com/shop/FreedomRyders.

The Cobra Shop



I have a secret and I am sharing it with you ….. can you hear me scream, "vintage Vintage VINTAGE".  Well, it's  here to stay whether it's an old Starwars R2d2 vintage backpack or a one of a kind  item from decades past.  The Cobra Shop owned by Mark Hunter carrys vintage items from his adventures around the world.  The new cobra custom items are unique and have been made by the Cobra Snake team in Los Angeles.   I love my new Cobra Snake white hoodie and have added this comfy sweatshirt to my closet.


All  items sold at  The Cobra Shop have been preloved so they may have some flaws or imperfections.  I picked up a crop top from the "Camp Beverly Hills " era and a couple of  Wildfox pieces.  Every item in this fashion filled store is unique and one of a kind.  I love the accessories, tattoo chokers, and alien t-shirts. 

I love my vintage 70's button down and my funky white platforms. Yes., the platform shoe fad from the 70's is back and I am embracing these shoes with new updated fashion trends.  The "sunnies"  from Crapeyewear make you feel old hollywood and they have a great selection to add to your sunglass collection.


Take a nostalgic trip down memory lane from your own childhood or  find out what was popular when your parents were kids .  You can visit  The Cobra Shop at 1441 Highland Avenue in Los Angeles or visit their amazing website at shop.thecobrasnake.com .You will love it and tell them Larsen sent you….

Peace out Hipstahs.

Larsen Thompson Says ShopAkira.com



Taylor Hatala and I recently performed in Chicago so it was a great surprise when asked by owners John Cotay and Erikka Wang of Akira to visit their warehouse and model some of their amazing clothes.
 
Akira opened their first store in 2002 in trendy Wicker Park.  What was then a single storefront has now be transformed into more than 18 locations with a trendsetting fashion website www.shopakira.com .
 
You have to love the amazing fashion vibe atmosphere when you visit their stores and the customer service is great.  You actually  feel like you have walked into a candy store filled with your favorite brands. The walls are covered in polaroid pictures of customers in their new clothes.  The music playing puts you in a shopping vibe and they definitely understand teenage fashion.  You can shop all different styles at Akira including  dresses, accessories, and shoes. The stores are filled with brands such as For Love and Lemmons, Vintage Havana, Unif, and Jeffrey Campbell shoes.

Bonnie Young Official

Picture by Isa Battaglin of LillyK Photography
I have a new favorite American designer and her name is Bonnie Young.
She was a former executive for Donna Karan and began her amazing  line in 2006.    She designs whimsical, high couture pieces.   Her designs are unique and have a European flair.  Sizes range from infant to size 16.

I loved modeling the blue lace jumpsuit for Poster Child Magazine.  It  is one of my favorite pieces from her collection. I love the fact that you can make this jumpsuit dressy or wear it more casual. Her designs take street chic to a new level.

Gifting Suite Honoring MTV Movie Awards


Taylor Hatala and I were invited to the gifting suite honoring the MTV Movie Awards.   It was an epic event and we got to see a number of friends.   I love day events cause you can make the fashion  dressy, but more casual.  Fashion is the key to a Red Carpet Event and for this event I styled myself.   I wore an  LF Stores black jumpsuit with lace sleeves www.lfstores.com and paired it with my Jeffrey Campbell boots www.jeffreycampbellshoes.com. Taylor wore some amazing  leather shorts with a kimona  blouse.  We felt fashion ready and had a wonderful time.  It was great seeing friends, meeting celebrities,  and receiving so many amazing gifts.  My two favorite companies  were Go Go Brush and Pj57 Jeweley.

Go Go Brush is located in Anchorage Alaska and you can find them at www.gogobrush.com . This company offers you a colorful personalized toothbrush and when you SUBSCRIBE you receive a new toothbrush every three months.   This company was started by a dentist and it was so much fun meeting the family who are promoting the product.  I am SUBSCRIBING this week and can't wait to get my personalized tooth brush.

My next favorite gift was handmade jewelry by owner Shanra Kehl.  You can visit this company at www.pj57jewelry.com.  The  jewelry is very hip and  the company is donating 25 percent to breast cancer.  I chose a bracelet and found out that the bracelet stones are about positivity. The bracelet is to remind you to love who your are and where you are heading.  The necklace I chose is to remind yourself that you need to take care of yourself before you can help others.  I love the concept of the company and love the owner's passion. Can't wait to show you my new hip pieces.

It was a very fun filled event and loved seeing friends, meeting new celebrities, and talking to new innovative companies. See ya next year MTV.

Hipstah Out,
Larsen

Lauren Alexandra Beanies and More….


I love when I find companies that have my fashion style. Recently, I found a NY clothing brand that caught my attention. Lauren Alexandra beanies and tees are fun and whimsical. I first noticed this company when one of my favorite models Ireland Baldwin was wearing one of their beanies. The company has unique items . I recently added to my closet the Queen beanie and the adorable Moon Tee "As Bright As The Moon Is, We All Have A Dark Side".  I like t-shirts that express something I would say to the world and the tees are great quality and have unique quotes. Recently, I wore my new tee with a colorful flannel and felt very chic. Check out this hip company on instagram @shoplaurenalexandra or shop their website at www.laurenalexandrany.com and add a little NY fashion to your closet.


Love ya Hispters,

Art Loves Fashion Red Carpet






Last night I attended the Art Love Fashion Show. It was a great event for Artistix Jeans. Jazmin Whitley, fashion editor for Nationalist Magazine www.nationalistmagazine.com styled me for this event.
