Inspiration LA: JJ Wessels – Matix Ambassador A conversation over musty vintage clothes? 'But I Like it!"

Gabe Clement and JJ with the "Inspiration LA" one-off tee that was printed during the event.

SWELL: Hey JJ, thanks for taking some time to talk to us. “Inspiration LA” is pretty awesome and somewhat overwhelming for me, It’s my first year at the event. Have you been to the event before this year? How has your experience been so far?

JJ: I’ve been coming to the event since it started really, I was invited by Rin Tanaka. One of my friends, Brian Bent, was featured in a book that Rin published, and I think thats how I met him. It’s been the best event so far, definitely the best turnout. It’s something I wouldn’t miss. it’s something where I’m like “Inspiration is coming up! when is it? where is it?” type thing. (more…)

It’s beginning to look a lot like Winter, which means subbing Summer’s flowy dresses and skin for restrictive skinny jeans. NOT. Cozy up to one of our favorite styles of the season: the Long Sleeve Maxi Dress. It’s all of the comfort and feminine style of the original, minus the chill factor. Sort of like the love child of Mrs. Rabbit and a snuggie, but with far more bohemian flair.
