the concept of skinny buddha first emerged back in 2005 while I was working for the summer at a restaurant in LA. I was playing this game of making up punk band names with these 2 awesome friends of mine. skinny buddha was by far the best name we ever came up with, and it stuck with me ever since. skinny buddha was an imaginary punk band that had 3 very real members, and was so punk that it never played any concerts. even though the concept changed over the years, from a punk band to a fashion blog, it basically represents all things close to my heart, from my friends, to my time in LA, to my favorite bands, foods and fashion styles.
