Hello Moth Oddities blog readers. Allow me introduce you to Yana Pietras, circa 1998. She will be telling you a little bit about our recent Summer Lookbook titled NO BOYS ALLOWED! The Spice Girls and BFF pool party hangs were a big part of her 1990's upbringing. Even today, she still has a very strong belief that every day should start out with a song and dance, lip syncing passionately into a microphone/brush while getting ready for the day!

 *insert Ian rolling his eyes* Okay, enough of the third person... but I want to take you on one more trip down memory lane. Feel free to click the play button below, sit back, and enjoy the next four minutes of your life. You're welcome.

For the NO BOYS ALLOWED pool party photo shoot we wanted to encapsulate these sassy and confident Girl Power inspired ideals. This collection highlights our favorite feminine summer styles by mixing contemporary items with garments from the 60's, 80's, and 90's. We've even included a few handmade, one-of-a-kind designs by Minneapolis fashion designer, Claire Ward.

Boys... always crashing the party! Loving this cameo made by Banana Boy, Ian.

Hope you enjoyed the photos! We definitely had a great time making them. This shoot was the highlight of the summer. Shout out to everyone who was involved! It was SO fun to work together and make this vision come to life.

Also, thanks to Kristi for lending us the donut floatie, Josh for lending us the banana suit, and Saji for allowing us to spend the afternoon at his pool AND play around with his underwater camera! The NO BOYS ALLOWED Lookbook would not have been possible without each and every one of you so THANK YOU so much for your time and talents.

XO Yana, Moth Oddities
