<!–Hello LuLu Lovers!

This year, the fashion at Coachella was all over the map, as always. You see, desert chic can go oh so many ways.

Right off the bat, I noticed that there was a heavy 60′s/70′s vintage influence. Lots of psychedelic prints and muted colors, vintage denim shorts and white linen shirts tied around the waist.  If I could have piled all the leather strappy sandals together I think we could have reached the moon.

As for accessories, vintage metals, long dangly earrings, LOTS of feathers, and of course the infamous head band — although that trend is phasing out compared to years past!

As for the festival … Saturday morning, I woke up and said to myself, “Are we really going back again?” Friday was cool but just so overwhelming. I think it took me 3 hours just to get used to being around 60,000 people!

 


Friday’s highlight was, surprisingly, Jay-Z (even Beyonce stopped by for a duet), but I also caught Yeasayer (who had one of my favorite albums this year), Them Crooked Ventures, Grizzly Bear, LCD Soudsystem, Imogen Heap, Vampire Weekend and Fever Ray.


Luckily, Saturday was much more enjoyable than Friday, due to the better line-up, in my opinion. We first made a stop at the Anthem Magazine party for some amazing views, good music and a delicious lunch. Even scored some new flip flops and bathing suits from DC!

Next it was off to day 2 of the festival. Muse was today’s big hit, but I was equally excited to catch the interweb sensation Die Antwoord as well as Z-trip, Gossip, Hot Chip and Major Lazer. By the end of the night, my feet were getting ready to detach themselves and head on home without me … but fashion is painful, right? (Especially when you have a new pair of Tory Burch sandals that you didn’t break in yet.)


Day 3, we took a much-needed break laying by the pool before heading back to the fields. On today’s list was Spoon, Florence and the Machine, Glitch Mob, Phoenix, Miike Snow and Gorillaz.


Now it’s back to reality, but looking back, it was quite an amazing 3 days of celebrating music! You kind of need a 3-day vacation afterward to just decompress from it all!


Till again!

MusicGet Through Your Day With: DAYDREAMING by Kid Sister!!

Kid Sister is a fashionable diva whose song Daydreaming is perfect for killing thoose mid-week blues!

I enjoyed watching her adorable self in this adorable video this morning, and it’s already made my “I wish it was Friday” blues go away. I love her bright clothes, her long colored nails, and her super soft pink makeup in this video.

I recommend watching and going for a stroll downtown to get a treat on your lunch break or after work while listening to this song on your iPod!

ArtMusic + ART = Go DO by Jónsi

I was perusing some music blogs the other day when I happened upon a music video that literally transported me to another world. The song that captured me was Go DO by Jónsi of Sigur Rós.

If you don’t know or aren’t familiar with Sigur Rós then I recommend checking them out but keep in mind they aren’t for the faint of heart. However, I believe the video for the single Go DO from the album Go is a masterpiece of artistic vision in which theater, performance, and opera are combined to create an otherworldly experience as you watch and listen to this video.

59 Productions, who produced the operatic theatre inspired performances done for the Jónsi his new tour described it as:

“Band members arrive onstage in the gloom of night. Owls fly and wolves chase deer, leading us into the next song as floodlights reveal the remains of a ruined house cradled in the heart of a forest. And Jonsi himself, dressed all in white and wrapped in coloured rags, backlit by the perfectly timed footlights fanning out, flowerlike. Whistles and wolf call sound effects echo the effect of a gently decaying house, something warm and bright unfurling in your belly as you become more absorbed in the show.”

MusicGlee and Madonna, but of course!

Return of Glee + Madonna + Sue Sylvester + the beauty of viral advertising = excellent viewing

Last night a promo video for Glee’s upcoming episode featuring a Madonna playlist was aired. Jane Lynch sings along to “Vogue,” making me want to grab the new Like a Prayer Gloves and dance around the warehouse circa 1990. Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it!!
