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!

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…
Picture it: The year is 1967. The place: Laurel Canyon. Tucked away in the hills of Los Angeles, bohemian bungalows fill the canyon inhabited by the coolest and most talented in the music industry. Marijuana smoke fills the air and Frank Zappa could take a stroll down the road and hear the tunes of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s guitars echoing through the hills. Graham Nash moved out to LA to stay with his lover, Joni Mitchell. All hanging out together, co-writing songs, taking drugs, and messing around.. David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Michelle Philips, Linda Ronstadt, Mama Cass, The Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, and Jackson Browne were just a few of the groovy rock ‘n’ roll Bandits that were making history in the free love world of Laurel Canyon. Other stars from all of the world were known to have frequented the canyon to visit their famous friends, too. Here are some dreamy stills from the time we all wish we could go back to and be a part of…
