Some of California's finest dressed dapperdans and gentleboys were at Stone Pony (put this place on your must see list) for last week's Big Boy Vintage San Francisco release party, which was as cute and amazeballs as expected. I got a riDICK knit cat purse (see below, ghurl) and was just generally bedazzled.
Apologies for the late coverage but omg I've been prepping for the Sister Spit Tour like no other! I thought I'd share some photos I took from the evening. The players: moi, Rudy Bleu, Big Boy Vintage's Daddy, who came up from BBV's hometown of Los Angeles and Brontez Purnell, (who I officially officially met yesterday and am now obsessed with.. read this Colorlines piece about him), who was spinning. Oh, and my new BFF the cat purse.
