I’m Kimi Encarnacion and I live in southern California. I guess you could say I’m a vintage butterfly. I go where my eye takes me and I don’t follow any rules. I fell in love with thriftshops as a teenager and have collected vintage clothing ever since. My home is filled with junk store discoveries and curbside treasures. I traded Utah for Los Angeles at age 17, I studied fashion design, I sang in a rock band, I dabble in everything and I’m completely enamored with my family. I have a knack for making something out of nothing. For making things fit and work. Mostly cuz I mess everything up the first time I do it! I started this blog as a social experiment to see if anyone would pay attention. I now realize it helps justify all the time I spend doing “nothing” so when people ask me what I’m up to I can whip out a somewhat satisfying answer. I’m not sure where California Pixie will end up but I have a ton of ideas!
My life is a big mish mash of FAB old stuff, fun people and lots of adventure. It’s my passion. It borders on obsession but I don’t mind, I really am crazy about it!
Take a peek! Get inspired!
