I am headed to Coachella for the first time this weekend.  After years of watching people post on Facebook and Twitter while they are there, I get to be one of those annoying people.  And can I say I haven’t been this excited for a music event in years???
Since the line up times haven’t been released yet, I’ve been mostly obsessing over what to wear (and believe it or not actually “pinning”).  I’ll be headed to a blogger lounge, so I want to make sure that I am least matching my top to my bottom.  I’m currently drawing inspiration from Talitha Getty and her timeless BoHo Chic style.  Pretty sure I’ll end up over packing.  Also wondering about the shoe situation.  Any tips?

A serious WFH (work from home) day requires the essentials: roses from Whole Foods to brighten up the office, a Voluspa candle for amazing scent, Bose speakers for the classical music I play on Spotify when I really need to concentrate, and a tall glass of water in my new glasses from CB2. And of course two iPhones and a MacBook.  
If I am going to work 12 hours a day I should enjoy my surroundings, n’cest pas?

I’ve been terrible at posting at lately, but my day job has currently taken over my life.  I wish I had an extra few hours in the day, or even an extra day in the week.  I feel kind of robbed by Daylight Savings.
Who is working through the weekend?  Me.  :(

This Dress Came off the Model’s Body

At the LAFC Fall 2013 Collections Odylyne show last year, I fell in love with this kimono inspired dress:

I had to have it.  What I love about Odylyne dresses is that not only do they make a statement, but it gives the illusion that the wearer is floating while she walks into the room.

Fast forward to November 2013 when I was lucky enough to be in the Odylyne studio for a sample sale and found the dress!  The only one there, which I assumed was the one the model wore on the runway.  I did a little happy dance when I found out that it was for sale.

With just a little bit of altering on the bottom, because I’m most certainly not model height, the dress was ready to go.  I wore it on my Birthday, but two weekends ago when the LA Dance Project was performing at the Ace Theatre, I thought it was be appropriate to bring it out again.

From runway to the streets of DTLA.  And yes, this dress came right off the model’s body.
