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!

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…

Laurel Canyon: 1967

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…57e23985243da8211e7d5db8be0fe954 3ac8b3ea7d530dbee3a79d0c0d2bd7f4 5d4d4374a67a713d5d2c0d46b8c4aed0 6a61a67e8f7aa943b281f7695adda211 6bd9117fdc46844d043f32120c5c83a5 73e4743b5b6dbccc12e2490bface1140 392320d8c7758be1a6da5da4590af189 c0a8fc71cfe8b9dcf8650301d24f5e1a df94836453597c27a1c9b65602e0c43f f05c905c14859df38af336bba4d49be0-1 Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 1.19.34 PM Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 1.19.54 PM Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 1.20.48 PM
