Massive Coachella Post

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.

My Saturday outfit: An LBD I made for daytime, and a Topshop swimsuit.

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.

Day 2:

On Sunday, 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.

What Happened to My Sweet Girl?

Last night I went for an updated, 1930's movie star look. Dark, mysterious makeup, sparkles, soft colors, and classic silhouettes. Azia was the black swan to my white in the cutest black satin mini dress. Tim was just Tim in a chambray button down and loafers. The three of us, along with other roommates and friends celebrated Azia's housewarming by dancing to Queen, playing with the neighborhood cats, and sipping fruity beverages.
