Wedding Mondays

Our Topanga may not have ended up with Cory Matthews, but she did get her fairytale ending with her husband Jensen. I’m well aware that Danielle Fishel is not her character, but watching this still felt like an extension of her life! Danielle and her husband Jensen married in Los Angeles amongst their friends and some of her former co-stars. Sabrina Carpenter who played her the best friend of her on-screen daughter was even one of her bridesmaids!

The two married held their wedding at the beautiful Carondelet House. As if the wedding wasn’t enough of a show stopper with all of the details, John Mayer sang their first dance song.

For all of the details and more, you can view their wedding [here] at Green Wedding Shoes.

Wedding Mondays

Wedding Mondays is still my favorite way to kick off a week. I was discouraged from even posting today because I sat near a group of men at lunch who expressed some strong hatred for weddings. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. And even though it was a huge damper, I came home and remembered how much I loved this video. What can I say? The song makes everything.
On top of that, what makes this wedding video even more special is that it comes from the first wedding video vendor I ever loved – Shark Pig. In it, you’ll find their signature vintage-y spin on it, but you’ll also see a lot of modern elements.

Lucy Sparrow’s Felt Filled Supermarket

Lucy Sparrow may have just set up the cutest supermarket you’ve ever seen. After creating similar exhibits in both London and New York City, she brought her creative expertise to Los Angeles. At the Standard Hotel in downtown LA, you’ll find a market with some recognizable items and while none are edible, they are all available for purchase. All 31,000 pieces!

With every project, Lucy’s number of items have increasingly grown. When she first started out in London, she had 4,000 hand-sewn products. In New York, the number of items increased to 9,000 with items selling out in just a matter of days.

I’m obsessed with these qt pieces and wish I could see this myself! Readers, if you’re in LA – check out the pop-up at the hotel that is showing right now until August 31st.

2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards

Madelaine Petsch in Prada

I’m so old that I completely forgot that this was happening tonight and that the award show has changed its name to “MTV Movie and Television Awards.” We’re not sure when that happened, but we do appreciate the inclusivity for television series. Next up? All of our favorite looks and nothing about the award show itself because we’re not watching it this year.

FYF Fest Canceled

My heart sunk a little when I saw this news earlier this week. In all the years that I’ve been sharing music festival lineups on Yow Yow! I’ve never actually had to go back and retract something like this. We shared this lineup to the blog just at the end of March and not even a month and a half later, the organizers have announced that the entire festival is being canceled. What a terrible feeling for all those involved especially those behind-the-scenes who likely spent a year + trying to put together what would have been a fantastic weekend.

The festival takes place in LA, which has an incredible music scene so I’ve been trying to wrack my brain to figure out what went wrong. Was it Coachella? Was it the clause that prevents other artists and bands from performing at music festivals and concerts within a certain time span of each other? It was disappointing when San Francisco lost Treasure Island Music after their 2016 run, but to cancel a fest before it even had a chance to get up on its legs is heartbreaking.

Glossier Goes West

Earlier this week, the cult beauty brand announced that they were opening up shop in Los Angeles. Glossier is expanding…and fast! Already an icon in New York City, just a little over a month ago or so, Glossier took over one of my favorite sandwich shops in the Mission to make it’s own pop-up. I went there last week and it was madness. However, more on that later. Having raised just $52 million back in February for their Series C, it seems as though the brand is using this funding to expand out further not only in new products, but in brick-and-mortar spaces. This will be their 2nd permanent location after their one in New York City and it is slated to open this coming May.
