Up until last week I had no idea that the Piñata District in Downtown LA existed. It's a section of downtown LA that has developed as a wholesale hub for piñata and candy. You'll find it nested in the area around East Olympic Boulevard and South Central Avenue.
The Piñata District offers tons of colorful options! Take your time hopping from one shop to the other picking through in search for your perfect piñata.
After carefully studying all the options we had we were ready! Our hearts were set on a watermelon and a pineapple piñatas. The store we shopped at is called Amazing Piñatas and most of the piñatas sell for $12 to $20. The coast is well worth it! Shooting with this kind of prop is tons of fun and almost every shot was perfect.
Btw some store owners specialize in custom piñatas. Unique shapes for bachelorette parties, birthdays and photo shoots.

Hello from LA. Time to soak some sun, shop and eat good food! Today I'm wearing a top by J.Crew and pants by Zara. Both are from my new favorite place on the web - ThreadUp.com. Total cost:$38 (top $23 and pants $15) ThreadUp's lovely packaging will always raise your serotonin levels when it shows up at your door! From the dotted box to all the cute little labels that say "Renewed with love in San Francisco" - everything is made with care and attention to detail. The best part about them is that their inventory is always being updated daily. ThreadUP is part of a new trend emerging on the web allowing users to shop each other's closets. Finding fab fashion pieces for a fraction of the price has never been so fun and easy! (Finally!!)
Warning: It's super addictive! Browse at your own risk:)

Tip: Animal prints can really work for anybody. If you are not sure how to match it start with keeping the rest of your outfit neutral. Or go for a single vibrant color.
