There was desert dancing.
There was glitter.
There was outfit-matching.
There were over 1000 pictures taken by lali.

There was desert dancing.
Of our 173 blog posts, 5 have referenced our Toms shoes.
After today, we’ll be 6 for 174! That’s because today is One Day Without Shoes and lali is doing our part to spread awareness that millions of children live without proper footwear, exposing them to injury and disease every day.
Clearly we’re a fan of the Toms brand, enjoy the four pairs of Toms shoes we own between the two of us, and love the way they’ve merged capitalism with conscience. We were even willing to scurry shoeless through the kitchens at the risk of stern reprimand!
And we’re also super excited to welcome them to the neighborhood. They recently joined our cool-companies-with-warehouse-offices-in-Playa-del-Rey club, and now basically share Chiat’s parking lot (that’s them at the end).
PS to our neighbors: if you’re reading this, we’re still anxiously awaiting a tour and chance to go down the twisty slide we can see from outside your window while we’re parking our cars. Also, we should collaborate on some ads sometime, don’t you think?
So thanks, Toms, for giving us a reason to concept shoeless other than our usual love of comfort and bare feet. We hope lots of kids have brighter futures after today.
So lali just got back from a shoot! You’ll find out all the juicy details about who and what and with whom we were shooting later. But for now, just know that we went to the lovely hipster city of Portland to shoot it!
So, for a rainy week in March, lali presents:
Two ad girls trying to make it in a city of hipsters.
Watch this first to get in the mood:
And now… look at these hipsters!
All these clothes in this suitcase I got at a thrift store.
Going through security is so mainstream.
We thought the snacks on the plane were supposed to be vegan.
I hate rain. Oh wait, I hate everything.
This breakfast better be gluten-free.
Especially those donuts.
We only take the director seriously because he has a mustache.
Not one but two bike lights required for our other director.
We only eat food prepared by people as cool as us.
Craft services got the hipster memo.
Food tastes better when served with a mustache.
Is the beer I’m having for breakfast from a local brewery?
We went to four years of film school for this?
Is this vintage shirt organic?
I’m only smiling ironically.
I bought this hat with my mom’s credit card.
We only buy things at thrift stores. Bonus if it’s thrift store and Native American.
I left my fixie outside. Boom.
Oh there it is painted on a wall.
Twinsies no exclamation point.
And then we took a trip to visit our old Chiat pal Chris Capretto Wieden + Kennedy and got all hipster up in that joint too.
And finally, we had a music meeting at the Dandy Warhol’s studio, which was like a rock ‘n roll playground.
Ahh, city of hipsters. All in all, Portland was a town with good food, nice people and lots of rain. We can’t wait to go back in a month and give you another Portlalia update!
