Here at 2B, we were inspired to make a playlist that embodies our style, spirit & all around attitude. This playlist consists of all female rock bands from the 1960s. A lot of the bands seen here never made it BIG, but they impacted the music community immensely. These girls are the definition of Bandit Babes. Bang! Bang!
Thanks to Pinterest we’ve got some major hair envy happening over here. We’ve gathered our favorite braided looks for inspo we wanna try out asap. The secret beauty of braids, dear Bandits, is they stay better with dirty hair. Oh yeah. We’re definitely planning on staying cozy with a furry coat, adorned with messy braids and drizzled with rain droplets this Fall..

Meet the man who brought flowing fringe and glittering rhinestones to all of the swooners & crooners of the 60’s and 70’s – Nudie Cohn. His suits have been worn by just about everyone in the Country and Rock n’ Roll world, such as Johnny Cash and John Lennon. He made Bob Dylan’s Mariachi suit, Sonny and Cher’s matching Native American looks, Gram Parsons marijuana leaf treasure, and Elvis’ ever amazing glitzy gold lamé suit! He brought the ultimate Bandit vibes from Nashville to Hollywood. Nowadays, stars like Jack White and Karen O are still rocking these glittering gems! Here’s a look at some of our fave Nudie suits…
“Anyone can make a pair of blue jeans, but Levi Strauss & Co. made the first blue jean –– in 1873.” Being San Francisco based and lovers of all things western, we’ll just come right out and say it, BANDITS LOVE LEVI’S. Who doesn’t have their favorite distressed, super soft pair of vintage Levi’s to throw on at all times? Here’s a fun fact: Levi’s created the first jean for women, Lady Levi’s, which were born in 1934. Now, we gathered some of our favorite Levi’s Ads throughout the years, including a few gems that were deemed too risqué for the company & were never actually used commercially. Get ready for some booty, Bandits..
Get ready for some RAD Bandit inspiration from southwestern tile & wallpaper, peacock chairs, larger than life cacti, rustic doorways, cozy vintage rugs and more. Always surround yourself with beauty and inspiration, Bandits because home is where the heart is. x

If a Tim Burton character miraculously transformed into a young festival-goer BOOM, you have Hedi Slimane’s rock’n’roll fantasy of a runway show. Try not to drool as you feast your bandit eyes on this psychedelic lovefest, oh, and he even teased us with a handful of women’s looks too, enjoy!
