I just bought my Disneyland pass, so expect lots of Disneyland posts in the future! It's one of my favorite places on earth (and the happiest!). I'm in a vintage top and Princess Belle tutu from the Bippity Boppity Boutique.
I was channeling my hero Ann-Margret (who is celebrating her 70th birthday today!) when I went to go see one of my favorite bands, Middle Brother at the Echo in Echo Park, Los Angeles. They're a culmination of Delta Spirit, Dawes, Deer Tick, and they're amazing. The opening act was Jonny Corndawg, the best country artist of our era.
While most people in Indio this past weekend might have been tripping to Arcade Fire or sweating to The Strokes at Coachella, I just went for the parties. Every year, about half of LA's 20-somethings can be found lounging by the pool or getting their picture taken at one of the Coachella parties going on in the area.
We may have gotten a bit lost on the way there (hence the sideshow of cows), and the regularly 2 and a half hour drive to Coachella took about three and a half.

The day was spent party-hopping all around Indio, Bermuda Dunes, and Palm Springs. Eventually at night, we ended up at the Ace Hotel and got crazy.
OnSunday, we hung out at the Belvedere Vodka party. My suit is half Victoria Secret/half Topshop, and Valerie's is Betsey Johnson.
The Sunday outfit, with and without shorts.
After Belvedere, we went back to the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs for some swimming. The hotel is right up against the mountains, and it's beautiful at dusk. It was a perfect ending to a wonderful weekend.
