cool kids' graphic tees...

Kids-graphic-tees-blog

I love dressing my kids in adorable little dresses and skirts, but often for school and play time, they just need a cozy tee and shorts or pants to be durable and easy-to-wash. So, as much as I love a graphic tee for myself, I love them even more for my kids. Here are a few of my favorites right now!

In my 12 years in business, one of my favorite parts of what I am able to do at Oh Joy is to share the work of other designers, artists, makers that I admire and love.

shopping for vintage: a striped jumpsuit!

2018_1_16_Vintage-Jumpsuit-22-gif-blog

Last weekend, I went to the Rosebowl Flea Market and scored this amazing pink striped jumper for $20! It's a piece that's super fun and makes a statement. But it's also a piece when seen on a hanger might not appeal to everyone. One of my goals in sharing fashion posts is to show you how to see the potential in a piece and also how to consider it for your size and body type...both of those things are even harder to do with vintage since you don't have a range of sizes to choose from. So, today, I'm gonna show you how a little styling does wonders to a piece like this, and how it works on a few different people in the Oh Joy office...

oh joy office: a simple, beautiful update...

Oh Joy Office Lights

Last week, I debuted the design of my new Executive Office. This spring, I'm aiming to get the rest of the space done. Although it's been a year since we moved in, all these improvements take time and money—and much like a house—it's made sense to spread them out over time! Today, I wanted to show you a super simple, but beautiful, update we made to the main space of our office. This area is where our shooting space is and transitions from that space to the main entry area. Take a look at the BEFORE and AFTER...
