As many of you do not know - I'm in Chicago today! Unfortunately for me it is not snowing. That makes me really bummed because I was convinced that I would see my first snow shower (?) ever. Oh well, maybe it will snow tomorrow….Anyways, I saw Yeasayer and HEALTH play at the Metro tonight. The venue is SUPER pretty but it was kinda confusing to navigate (the only girls bathroom is all the way up on the 3rd floor!). So yeah, anyways, HEALTH was amazing as always and Yeasayer was great as well - I've never seen them live so that was a pleasant treat. I'm seeing them play again for New Years so if everyone plays only half as good as they did tonight then I will be overly satisfied!
A few weeks ago HEALTH filmed their new promo for their Australia tour and I was in it! I had so much fun running around town and filming it with them. The best part of it all i think was just making up the silly one-liners to say for the quick cuts! HEALTH is still not afraid.
I don't think that anybody knows this BUT….pink is my favorite color. But I can never find anything cute in my favorite shade. All of the shades are either too neon or too dark. I was beginning to think that I was never going to find my favorite shade of pink in anything other then custom wall paint. And that is why I was so excited to find theses Jeffery Campbells!
They are the perfect shade of bubblegum that I have been looking for! I want every pair! Don't you?!?!?!
Today, since I still don't feel 100% I decided to garden and try to take some cool photos around the house. I cut back the ivy and pulled out some random grass that was growing weirdly. I absolutely LOVE the front of my house with all the pretty pink flowers growing around it. So beautiful. I just wish that the rest of the yard looked as nice. And that's why I can't wait to get well and buy some new flowers to plant all along the side of the house. I'm thinking foxgloves. They would look so perfect there next to all of the roses and the really huge rosemary bush!

Sorry that I haven't really been posting lately. And sorry that this isn't really a post. I've been sick the past week and all I've really felt like doing is watching movies. Anyways, I realized that other then not posting anything at all I also haven't really been posting pictures of what I have been wearing. I've been felling a lot better today so expect some outfit posts in the really near future!
On Saturday the design label that I write about all the time - The Coven - had their official launch party at Space15Twenty! And I'm happy to say that the place was PACKED. With a wonderful collection for sale and DJ sets by HEALTH and Om'Mas Keith the launch did not disappoint. Keep an eye on them. I can already tell you that they are gonna go far!
Yesterday the Laco$te premiered their video for "Numbers" at Pehrspace. And I have to say that the video was amazing! I was with the beautiful singer of the band, Xenia Shin when she and stylists Margot Padilla and Angie Olsen of Pretty Cool Land where picking out the perfect K-Pop outfits for the video. I didn't go to the filming so I was really awe-struck when the video was projected onto the huge screen that was in the middle of the concert space. It was the most fun I have had watching a music video in a long time - and that's saying alot!
ps- you can read and interview with Xenia Shin that she did for LA Weekly right here.

Sarah Burton's first solo collection for Alexander McQueen is beautiful! You can totally see him in these clothes and you can tell how close they must of had worked together. To be completely honest, I was kind of nervous to see how this collection was going to turn out. But I now I realize that I was worrying over nothing. This is one of the best collections I have seen this season!

Ahhhhh I feel so western in this outfit. It probably had something to do with the lovely skirt that I was wearing. My good friend Renee from one of the best new stores that I know of - The Coven - styled me in this outfit for her vintage ebay store. She already sold that amazing leather skirt (grrr I'm actually really regretting not buying it for myself) but she is now currently selling the super cozy cape that I am wearing in the photos. You can buy it here. But if you want it you must get it soon! The auction ends in 4 days!!!

- Diamond Catalog
Last night I went to what may be one of the best Pehrspace shows ever! Sean Carnage really out done himself this time with Peter's Pool Boys to create such an amazing line-up that consisted of Blok, Shams, Essay, Ryan G Hinds, and Diamond Catalog. And even with an awesome line-up one group and one solo act shined the brightest - Blok and Ryan G Hinds. Ah! They where just great! I'm still speechless when I think about their sets. They where just so high energy and they never seemed to wanna quit! I haven't seen groups that hyped in a LONG time!
