Vintage Jetsetter Style

With the holidays fast approaching and loved ones all across the world, we’re prepping for the hours of travel yet to come. Knowing we can never compromise our style in the process, we’re thinking ahead and planning the perfect jet-set style for these occasions while taking to some iconic people for fashion inspiration. From Bianca Jagger to Marianne Faithfull, we’re loving the fun, bohemian bandit vibes of these badass babes and their rocker boyfriends. From head-to-toe, every detail from their perfectly rounded sunnies to their chunky heeled booties make their outfits the essence of bandit perfection. In addition to these babes, we’re also loving #banditboyfriend Mick Jagger’s airport style. Being the ultimate arm candy that he is, he never let his guard down when hopping from one plane to the next, regardless of who he was with. Taking from these icons, we’re opting for cozy shearling coats and fringe jackets to wear over our cutest Henleys and flared denim. We’ll add a statement choker and ankle booties to top off our look as they are perfect additions for any traveling BANDIT!

Where have all the G L A M boys gone?

Over here at 2B we are firm believers in being yourself. Elton John has never been afraid to rock a glamourous full feather outfit or giant rhinestone sunnies – and for that, he is the ultimate Bandit Babe. His fab 10 inch sequin platforms paired with head-to-toe sequin stripes give us serious closet envy. Not to mention, who can listen to ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ without shedding a tear?! That being said, we CANNOT WAIT to see Elton at OutsideLands this year! We will have our lil BANDIT Booth set up right by the main stage! If you happen to be in beautiful San Francisco this weekend for the fest (August 7-9), stop by our booth for insanely good prices on 2B jewels and catch Elton play ‘Your Song’ and cry along with us!
P.S. We’re also doing a killer giveaway this year!

Bandit Papa

Father’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to give it up for all the Bandit Papas out there.  Without our dads, how else would we know how to shoot a sling shot or throw a punch or get dirty like the boys? A good papa really sacrifices for his family and deserves the praise for it! Our dads showed us all the best bands like The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac.. Thanks, dads! Here’s a look at some of the most precious Bandit Papas with their little bandit babes…

For Nudie by The2Bandits

We are so happy and proud to announce our newest upcoming collection *drum roll please*… we are releasing a very special collab with Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors, “For Nudie by The2Bandits”. We’ve teamed up with the Valley Relics Museum to honor the Rhinestone Cowboy and legend himself, Nudie Cohn. 20% of the jewelry proceeds will be donated to the Valley Relics Museum, which is home to many of Nudie’s vintage creations, to truly honor Mr. Nudie and keep the museum and his vision alive.  Nudie suits have been worn by every rock and country god; from Elvis’ gold lame suit, to Gram Parsons’ amazing marijuana leaf covered classic, Nudie made custom tailored suits for John Wayne, Jimmy Page, Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, Sonny and Cher, Elton John, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and pretty much anyone who was anyone throughout music history.

This collection has long been a dream of ours, and someone extra special got in on the action as well. Ultimate bandit babe, Erin Wasson art directed, co-produced and modeled for the lookbook for this star-studded collection. Entirely shot in the museum, Erin dawns the actual Nudie suits worn by the stars that made them so memorable. The lookbook was co-styled by Erin and Coryn Madley, and photographed by David Mushegain. For Nudie by The2Bandits launches June 2nd and we can’t wait to share it with y’all and honor the true legend that is Nudie Cohn along with his family and friends that made this dream a reality.

If ever in the LA area, y’all should check out the Valley Relics Museum! For more details check their website x

Miss Pamela – The Real Life Penny Lane

Every Bandit Babe idolizes Penny Lane, the stylish 70’s rock ‘n roll muse, free spirit, and star of our favorite movie – Almost Famous. She joined touring rock stars on the road to experience the magic of the music and had all of the long-haired hotties falling at her feet along the way.

Pamela Des Barres, better known as Miss Pamela, lived the real life Penny Lane lifestyle in the 60s and 70s and is said to be the inspiration for the character in this classic film. While she attended high school in Southern California in the 60s, she dreamed of meeting her favorite Beatle, Paul McCartney, and after discovering The Rolling Stones, she fantasized a sweet, happy go lucky life with the babein’ Mick Jagger. Once a school mate of hers introduced her to Captain Beefheart, who was also friends with Frank Zappa, there was no stopping that little heart-eyed groupie from making her presence known in the LA rock scene. Through these stars, she got to meet the Stones and started to party more on the Sunset Strip. Hanging with Gram Parsons and the rest of The Byrds, she made all the boys want her for her fun, carefree personality and her pretty little baby face. Miss Pamela dated and befriended rock gods, from Jimmy Page of Led Zepplin, to Keith Moon of the Who, manly-man Waylon Jennings, her idol, Mick Jagger, and even canoodled Jim Morrison. She got together her very own band-aid girl group called the GTO’s, Girls Together Outrageously, who hung around all the stars on the smokey Sunset Strip and in the hippie hills of Laurel Canyon. Miss Pamela and her GTO’s represented girl power in the dreamy music scene of the 60’s and 70’s, not to mention they had style for days.

“A real groupie is someone who loves the music …. someone who goes after what they want, so a groupie is a feminist thing. A woman who goes after what she wants is a feminist. So I’ve never been anything but a feminist. I took the birth control pill on the Strip in front of everybody and that was my statement. I control my body, I can do whatever the heck I want.”  Well said, Miss Pamela. We salute you.

Bandit Boyfriend: Brian Jones

Our love for the Rolling Stones is everlasting. Mick, Keith and the rest of the boys send lightning down our bandit spines with their glam rock wardrobes and bad-ass attitudes. But, let’s all take some time to highlight the original founding member, Brian Jones, because man was he the ideal bandit boyfriend or what? It was Brian Jones who started the band and got all the boys together. He even named the band, inspiring them to emulate the rock n’ roll blues that were all the rage in America at the time. Aside from that, the whimsical outfits Jones rocked were everything a bandit babe could ever want in her closet! His leather pants, glimmering sequins, floral patterns (and his adorable blonde bob) took androgyny to a whole other level. Naturally, he attracted tons of babely chicks of the 60’s, including Marianne Faithfull, Nico, and Anita Pallenberg. Although he died in a very mysterious (and very questionable) way, his dreamy style, music, and legacy will live on in rock n’ roll history forever. Here’s a look at some of our favorite fashionable looks from the original Rolling Stone…
