Bad Joan goes to Venice Beach

The weather has been so nice in LA that Bad Joan went down to Venice Beach to hang out with her friend Samantha Lowery; the designer behind Samanca Jewelry! Samantha lives right near the ocean which is where she draws a lot of inspiration for her eclectic and bohemian jewelry designs. Bad Joan convinced Samantha to let her borrow a bunch of jewelry AND she even convinced Samantha to do a special giveaway just for Bad Joan's readers, click HERE to find out more about the giveaway!

And check out Bad Joan's Venice Beach adventure...


When Bad Joan arrived in Venice she headed straight for the boardwalk ....

... Bad Joan showed off her hula hoop skills ...

... then she decided to see what she would like with dreadlocks ...

... she decided the dreads weren't her thing so she moved on to cowboy hats ...

... Bad Joan concluded that she likes her hair too much to cover it up! 

The sun started to go down so Bad Joan put on her coat and headed out onto the sand to watch the sunset ...



... it was one of the most beautiful sunsets she had ever seen ...

... and it just kept getting better ...

... and better ...

Hope you are having a wonderful start to 2012!

What Bad Joan is wearing:
- Racerback Tank by Donna Mizani (coming to Badjoan.com next week)
- Flowy Maxi Skirt by Lizzie Parker - Retail $104 / Sale $44

GTBB,
Bad Joan
