I just found this video by Tyrone Lebon that really made me feel romantic about photography again. Like any great love, it’s so easy to overlook or stop appreciating the person who sleeps next to you night after night. The beauty that we’ve obtained and the pure euphoria of the unknown. The discoveries that we find within ourselves by simply pressing the shutter. It’s videos like this that make me feel so fortunate to have fallen in love with something so beautifully flawed, so pure yet so full of lies. Who would have thought a window so small would change my viewpoint forever. Enjoy!

In an effort to expand our curation on Depop, we will be offering very rare original Polaroids from our archives. These have never been available in a public domain but we really wanted our Depop audience to have the chance to own tangible works of featured models. All Polaroids are editions of 1/1 and come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Steezy© Studios.
We only have a couple ASMSC hats left in stock. Available here. New pieces will be available soon!
Candids of our youtube friend, Arika Sato hanging out at in Malibu. Be sure to stop by Deprived Society and pick up some of our goods. All pieces are fully cut and sew and manufactured in Downtown Los Angeles. But we must say, they look pretty rad deconstructed on the ladies.
You asked for new posters, we listened. We just finalized the selection for our next Poster Club release which will be available this week. Be on the lookout for our newsletter!
I’ve been getting a ton of messages since I moved out of my apartment asking where I’ve been, what I’m doing and where am I going. To answer them all right here, I have been floating around Malibu, Calabasas and where I grew up in Thousand Oaks.. and to be completely transparent, I really haven’t been doing much, which is EXACTLY what I need to be doing to finally bring myself some mental clarity before I head to Europe. I’m taking this time to try to reset my brain, put things into perspective and really find out what brings me happiness. One thing is certain, it definitely is not Hollywood right now. I need sand, water, positive energy and good vibrations around me. Between going on two runs a day, swimming or just hanging out on the sand I cannot express what a difference it has made in my life. I wake up everyday without any stress, any worries and a childlike need to just walk around and explore. For those of you who are also at the edge, the point of no return, I highly recommend you detach yourself from your current situation, steer away from social media and just go be one with whatever environment puts a smile on your face. That’s what this whole next twelve months is really about for me. I’m on a quest to explore things in the world in order to discover how to become the best version of myself, not only mentally but physically as well. Of course I will stumble, I’m human but this is something I know I have to do to live a life of abundance and love the person I see when I look in the mirror.

Thank you to the good people over at Depop for recently featuring us. It was a real pleasure meeting the LA team at their new HQ a couple of weeks back. We never really knew that we were on their radar but it turns out they’re just as big of fans of us as we are of them. Be sure to give us a follow as we’re finally back up and running! @SteezyStudios
I will be having a private moving sale from today until this Sunday in West Hollywood. We’re scheduling time slots from 12-7pm where people can come and buy my personal belongings. I have everything from Modernica and Eames pieces to Gucci accessories and a million other little things that I’ve collected over the years. We will be accepting Venmo and cash as forms of payment. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please email us here.

There have been times when I’ve stumbled, fallen, been lost in the darkest places of my mind. Been confined within four walls and ultimately isolated myself in my thoughts. I’ve lost it all many of times but one thing has always remained consistent, I’ve always found a way to a more fruitful day once the mental, creative or financial storm has passed. This new chapter is by far going to be the most scariest. The one where I give up my security in order to truly live a life of experiences. I’m letting go of my possessions, all of the empty tangible shit that I once thought was so important and going to replace it with discovering what truly makes me happy. I don’t know who or what I’m going to stumble upon on this new journey but all I know is, if it doesn’t have substance, inspire me, help me grow or make me smile, I’m not fucking with it. Life is too short to be spent mentally shackled by darkness, fear or questioning the “what if”. It’s time to live an abundant life and I know that begins with leaving LA and exploring the world. So goodbye to my apartment that once was a creative and happy place but has now just become a constant reminder of a love lost, money lost and indulging in the evils to simply mask the heartbreak that I’ve had to endure. Time to become more creative, ambitious and a better version of myself. Thank you to the handful of friends and family who have really stuck by me these last couple of months. I’m known to be horrible at truly expressing my feelings or showing that I’m hurt, but fuck, I have really been in one of the darkest places I’ve ever been. I can truly say I don’t know if I would still be on this earth if it wasn’t for them constantly reminding me that this sad, depressed and counterproductive person isn’t who I truly am. We all deserve the fucking right to smile. The scariest part of any new journey is the first leap, after that… you’re flying.

Lauren stopped for a couple of drinks and a roll of expired film. Days like these are our favorite.
