Musicians, poets, visual artists, designers ... what makes them interesting isn't just the music they make, the art they create, or the style they have. What really makes them interesting is that they are our mirror. They reflect back to us, all the things that make us human. Our moment to moment humanity. Whether that be our moments of triumph, our moments of feeling confident - yet also, and sometimes most importantly - they reflect back to us our worries, our insecurities, our difficult moments. They give us the human experience through art, and we appreciate their sacrifice.

The off-shoulder top is back and still the sexy/conservative look every woman should be rocking this Spring. At KNG2LA, we have taken notice of this 90s throwback style and it fondly reminds us of Grease and Olivia Newton's off shoulder black top. The width of this look is endless.
Bright color eye makeup is perfect for Spring and an 80s throwback that we can't get enough of currently, at KNG2LA! This new trend alert is for both mascara and eyeliner, which creates a monochromatic look fresh for the season. It's a bold, daring style that matches any skin complexion.
