One of the major dilemmas during Halloween season is finding a thot-tastic costume that doesn’t make it look like you bought it from the 99 cent store. Most specialty stores sell us skimpy crop tops paired with tutu skirts and instantly we’re a “sexy maid.” Snooze. Obiviously, none of us want to break the bank for a holiday that comes once a year, but we also don’t want to look as basic as the twelve other Playboy bunnies in the room.
Have you ever seen shoes at Topshop and thought, “Those look strangely familiar to Chanel’s platforms from ’92”? If your answer is yes, and I’m assuming it is, then you would love following the Instagram account of Diet Prada. So many brands and designers rip each other off, from designs to cuts and to patterns. Whether it’s a fast fashion brand knocking off Balenciaga, or Balenciaga knocking off Celine, it happens all over the place.
Heavy hitters like Opening Ceremony and Nordstrom are hitting up Lola, designer and owner of dadybones, for her creations. Even though she’s working with larger corporations at this point in her career, she still stays true to her DIY roots. She talks with us about her future warehouse dreams and material searching below. Check it out! Can you tell us a little about yourself? My name is Lola aka dadybones. I live in Los Angeles where I make jewelry out of my dreams!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
