Hey loves! Yesterday I attended a Rookie Mag meetup at Space 15 Twenty in West Hollywood. If you don't know what Rookie is, check out my post about them here. Pretty much, they're an online magazine that publishes photos, stories, playlists, DIY's, and more.
Tavi Gevinson of Style Rookie is the Editor in Chief of the magazine. This summer, Tavi, Petra Collins, and Hazel Cills went on a road trip of the USA, meeting Rookie readers around the country. Their last events are being held in Los Angeles, so I forced my mom to drive me (*insert I-am-a-13-year-old-and-I-can't-drive lecture here*) to one of their meet-ups.
It was so much fun! We shopped around at a thrift sale, fangirled over Petra Collins's photography, sat in a Rookie-fied mini treehouse, took awkward photos, and made new friends. I went alone (my mom was distracted by a nearby Farmer's Market) and met a few nice girls that walked around with me the whole day.
Tavi was the nicest person and really down to earth. We talked about my deprived childhood because I don't like candy and I've never had soda in my life. Then everyone pitched in and bought me a Horchata, which is pretty much a cold, liquid churro. It was awesome.
