For an adorable post on Welcome Companions's blog, the LA accessories label tapped celebrity stylist Shirley Kurata to documente a day in her life while carrying her WC handbag. The post proves that the Rodarte-favorite's home is as colorful and quirky as the outfits she wears and also showcases her love of 1950s kitsch.
Speaking of vintage, Kurata also reveals her go-to source for all the creative looks she puts together: Warner Bros. Costume Department in Burbank. Warner Bros. Offering one of the largest collections of period and contemporary costumes for film, television, theater, and commercial productions, the whopping 60,000-square-foot facility offers a mindblowing selection of costumes that are meticulously sorted by era, decade, and style.
Since Warner Bros. only invites folks in the industry to rent its costumes, we suggest tagging along with your stylist friend to check out the goods.
