When a Cali cool kid retail haven joins forces with an Aussie cult-favorite fashion label, sartorial magic will undoubtedly occur. This past Saturday we joined some of our town's top style savants at Wasteland and MINKPINK's epic BBQ bash in the heart of Hollywood. The daytime rager was called "Wasted Daze" and featured everything we know and love about the '90s—tie-dye, pattern-clashing, wacky nail art, fun-loving music and all.

Besides mounds of throwback fashion inspiration (Wasteland's technicolor taste was in full force), the LA Canvas-organized party was a freebee lover's dream, equipped with comp nail art by Kleur, a tie-dye DIY station, grub from Burger Lounge and sweet swag bags filled with MINKPINK merch. There was also a live performance by Sandy Pussy (yes, that is a real band name) and DJ Tamara Sky played '90s gems like "The Sign" by Ace of Base and "Informer" by Snow.

Click through the gallery for our party snaps and stay tuned for more MINKPINK parties—the label's DTLA-inspired global campaign is just a taste of what's to come.
