About Us

Who are we? Two dapper L.A. gals who love to eat cake, among other things. Our names? Mari and Sara'. We met and immediately bonded while in graduate school at U.C.L.A. As we discovered a mutual interest and passion for art, poetry, music, fashion, photography, architecture and design- herstory was made and we collaborated! Our middle names are Sofia and Kali, hence the inspiration for the name of our line of handmade designer jewelry and other various goodies: SoKalDesigns. This blog is a place for us to showcase what we find fascinating in the world of art and design and the random flotsam and jetsam of the aesthetically driven part of our minds, as well as a way to update our fans about our upcoming lines of jewelry. We hope you enjoy sharing the vast space of the world of design/art/media with us...and far beyond :)

Summer/Fall Transitional Pieces, or, things that make me go "Oooh!!"

Presenting!!! a smattering of looks which debuted this summer that I think would go well to make the transition into the fall.  For instance, even the super bright Betsey Johnson frock (yes, its almost brain smashingly floral but work with me people) could be layered with a more demure blazer to add some pop to anyone's look once the sky begins to turn droll again.  In order from top to bottom: Betsey Johnson Gorgeous Garden dress in floral chiffon, Gypsy 05 Summer Lovin frock in leopard, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Ozzie Square Baby Aiden Bag in purple leather, the Rebecca Minkoff Obsession Bag in snakeskin, and the Young Fabulous and Broke Sydney Ombre romper.  (photos courtesy of www.shopbop.com, www.betseyjohnson.com and www.singer22.com)  These pieces have a certain ease to them, like you could toss them on years later and they would still make a funky, fun contribution to your wardrobe.
