70's Chella Vibes


In honor of weekend 2 of Coachella, here are a few pics from the previous weekend.  I know everyone is spamming IG and all other social media with Chella this and Chella that, but I just can't help myself. This is my favorite outfit that I wore. I bought the top randomly while last minute shopping right before the festival with my boyfriend at American Rag. It was the only one of it's kind, and although it was gently used and had a small hole, I still shelled out the bucks for it. It was a beautiful vintage piece, that worked great for Coachella. The look screams 70's meets 2015 in my opinion. It was simple, comfortable and perfect for the desert heat. XO












Chella, the good, the bad..

This year my Coachella weekend was so different than all the other times I've been. It had it's good moments and its bad. In the past, I've rented a house with friends, but this year we decided to rent hotel rooms. I stayed at the Saguaro, a beautiful rainbow colored hotel. I loved the different colored walls it offered and the simple vibrancy of it all. I have to say, it's a blogger worthy hotel for sure! This year I also attended The Neon Carnival party for the first time, and it was so much fun! Who doesn't love FREE everything, right? It is hands down the best party of Coachella.  As far as negatives go, I was a bit disappointed that I did not get to attend any blogger or fashion parties, and because the hotel was rather far from Coachella, it was more difficult to coordinate with a big group and spend more time on the festival grounds. Plus Drake sucked live; I like his songs but ughh come on, could he have been any more boring. XO

Festival Inspired

Who are you guys looking forward to seeing at Coachella? After looking over the lineup the other night, I realized there are many artist I'm unfamiliar with. Is there anyone I must check out? I've always been a fan of Florence + The Machine, She has such an amazing voice and she's so great live! I've actually never seen The Weekend live, and I love him so I'm thinking that is a must for me. In all my past years at Coachella, I spent a lot of time at the Sahara tent. I'm kinda over the EDM scene, so I'm happy to expand my music horizons this festival season! Help me, guide me, tell me what I must check out!!! 
On a side note, This look was again festival inspired! I've been living in these vintage Levi shorts. I have to give a BIG Shoutout to my friend Jazelle! She is a very talented Makeup Artist and did all my makeup in this look. She helped out a bunch with this shoot!! Love her!!! Check out her stuff @jazelle_1 on Instagram. XO

Coachella Lookbook Part 2

Coachella this, Coachella that, basically this week it's all about Coachella. Even though it's still a week away, it's all I can think about. I still don't know what I'm wearing, what parties I'm going to and where I'm staying. There really isn't much planned or set in stone for me this year. I'm just going with the flow. I really want to attend Neon Carnival this year, I've never been and while it is super exclusive, I'm still trying to figure out how to get myself an invite. As a blogger, the first weekend of Coachella is a very important networking site. The question is how do I network, if I can't get myself invited to these events. 



 


 


Coachella Lookbook Part 1

Every year towards the end of march, I find myself shopping for my best Coachella outfit. Very much a California girl, I think Coachella has become the home for festival fashion inspiration. Whether the line up is amazing or just sub par, you can always count on a perfect weekend of music, fashion, and friendship. As far as the fashion, there are so many different styles that I feel exude the same energy. Whether it's Grunge, Raver or Bohemian, for me it all captures a sense of FREEDOM. Personally when I'm considering what I should wear, I think style and comfort. Spending the whole day on the festival grounds means you will have to deal with the blistering heat, as well as the cool nights. I can still look amazing while not having to worry about blisters, or wardrobe malfunctions. Swing dresses, fringe, hats and short shorts seem like good choices to me. My friend Sophie and I have put together a lookbook that captures the essence of festival season. XO












All Black Friday

Happy Friday! The weather has cooled down a bit, so today I decided to wear some pantalones : P 
I'm sporting my Coachella 2014 tee ; I love that it looks like a rock band shirt. The shirt and the super cute crossbody that I purchased in Tokyo add edgy elements to this simple all black ootd. XO
