I can’t believe I’ve been to Coachella four years in a row. It’s crazy how time flies, and it’s been very interesting to see the way the festival has changed even in just a few short years. What was once a festival that flew under the radar has become a media focus and totally commercialized; Modern Family referenced it a few weeks ago, Good Morning America chatted about it on air, and brands are scrambling to be in your face left and right, trying to get a piece of the popular pie.

Though the quality of this year’s line-up has been the topic of much debate, I couldn’t be more excited for Coachella. Though music is the true star of the festival, the celebrity scene, exclusive parties and most importantly, fashion, are close runners-up in terms of buzz. This year, I’ve prepped more outfits than necessary for lounging by the pool, traipsing through the polo fields, dancing my face off and partying until the wee hours.
It would be silly of me to completely spoil my looks by modeling them in their entirety, so I’m just giving you a sneak peek. You’ll have to follow me on Instagram to see daily accounts of the ‘fits, and tune back in post-fest for a full report of the weekend in the sun. So what am I planning? Continue reading
Aesthetically pleasing and lacking a single edge, there is no beginning and no end to a circle. In Hinduism, circles symbolize unity, female power, and the sun, the giver of life. In fashion, they are flirty, feminine and fun. Continue reading
Ah, life. The second you decide you’re over something or someone, there it goes waltzing back into your life. I gave you many chances, thrifting, and for the past few months, come ups were just not something I was coming by. So I gave up and told you guys last week that I was over thrifting and didn’t miss it. Continue reading
A big giant hello, second handers! Yes, I am still alive. I’m sorry I haven’t had a chance to do a post in quite some time, but 2013 has gotten off to quite the start. It’s been nothing short of cray, but whatever, I’m here now and damn it, I’m still second handing.
Since moving to San Francisco, my wardrobe has done quite the 180. Apparently winter exists and my prior Orange County staples of sundresses, tank tops and wedges have now transitioned to sweaters, boots and skinny jeans. Additionally, I have come to realize that a lot of things I own were great for a fashionable blog post, but in reality, they aren’t super wearable. After months of staring into my closet annoyed, I spent my President’s Day afternoon cleaning it out. I then promptly marched to the Fillmore St. Crossroads and off-loaded $150 worth of clothes.

As I lay here in bed thinking back on these past 364 days, surrounded by second hand furniture, decor and clothing, I can’t help but feel pretty damn good about my 2012 New Year’s resolution. This challenge has been one of my proudest, most enjoyed projects that I have ever applied myself to.
Tomorrow I’ll be posting a review that sums up this crazy experiment, but before I do that, I want to share with you some of my most favorite purchases in this past year. So kick back, press play on this little ditty and let’s take a look at some bad ass purchases from 2012: Continue reading
Even if you aren’t an avid second hander like myself, you’ve probably been to a thrift store once or twice to pick up the most cherished second hand item of all: the ugly sweater. So cliche and always out of style, these holiday staples make parties livelier, drunker and a whole hell of a lot more festive. Continue reading

November is here, and fall is in full swing. The early fall weather in San Francisco is strange and beautiful; just when you think it’s getting cold, a warm, sunny day appears and makes things all better. The full change of season lurks around, threatening to strike at any time. His weapon of choice: rain. Continue reading
