Coachella ella ella (SO OVERDUE!)

Coachella was such a good time. The people, the music, everything. We were fortunate enough to book a hotel room so in advance that we were literally 5 minutes away on foot. As someone who lives in a climate which averages 65 degrees and breezy, Coachella was a quite scorching- more so than L.A but I assume that is because it is not near a beach breeze. The Killers, Morrissey, Beirut, Jenny Lewis, and Silversun Pickup's were the bands/singers which I was most looking forward to. What fascinates me about Coachella is how everyone so easily meshes together, regardless of whether you are a celebrity or some kid from the slums. By chance I happened to meet Adrien Brody, Kirsten Dunst (cutest little thing ever!), and AGYNESS DEYN. At first I just stared at a far, unsure of whether or not it was her because I always imagine her with her short pixie but her hair was a bit longer, yet still up in pony tail. I have yet to find any photo's online but she was wearing the greatest studded converse. New DIY project? Maybe! I'm pretty bummed I didn't run into Chloe Sevigny. I swear I would have walked right up to hair and straight up asked for a size 10 in the amazing buckle up boots in her new Opening Ceremony line. Anyways, the photo's are from Day 2 (The Killers line-up day) because our memory card filled up and we didn't want to delete anything.

(ONE of the button walls) 

Have you ever walked into a room and in the blink of an eye became completely anxious, bewildered, amazed, exhausted and overwhelmed? Well Britex Fabrics on Geary (in SF) is the epitome of all that. It is the Saks of all fabric stores. Four floors, yes I said four(4!) of linens, silk, cotton, prints, solids, buttons, left-overs, you name it. Rows upon rows, shelfs stacked high, and walls devoted to beautifully embroidered, gilded, silver, and jewel encrusted buttons. I spend nearly two hours riffling through some of the best fabric I have EVER seen. Any print, you name it, they have it. Grunge flowers, DVF-esque ethnic prints, stripes of any color, etc. I died. The downside is that the fabric may costs more than the store look-a-like garment, I mean $100 for 2.5 yards, yikes! But after drooling and awing in dismay for the first hour at the fabric and buttons, I just ran up to the room dedicated for scrap fabrics and bought several yards. Any fashion buff, future designer, or anyone interested in fabric should really check this place out just to say they did.

Spring Break has officially started. Unfortunately, all of my plans happen after it is over.

Spring Break
 - Study for AP exams (3 of them! How delightful!) 
 - Superfluous homework. 
 - Finish my DIY version of this bad boyI  and bad boyII
yeah not so eventful...  now lets look at the far more superior

 - Britney Spears concert 
 - Coachella, 3 Day Tickets (say what!) and a room at the motel/hotel like 3 blocks away. I booked the room months before the festivities and line-up were even announced. 
Oh and... guess who got her permit!? (Insert permit dance and song here). Pictures above are me driving in Jokeland to pick up my friend for some BFF bonding. GNO Fosho. 

P.S: Jokeland = Oakland.

Faux Leather Jacket - Second Hand, Button Down Tank - HM

I am sorry I have been so neglectful, blogspot! I find myself becoming more of a blog reader than a blog writer. My life has not been so fascinating as of recently. I went to Amoeba on Telegraph a week ago for a free concert. I still don't understand why people yell Free Bird!

AH I am so anxious for summer, I honestly cannot think about it or I will lose my sanity. New York City for 3 week with my best friend taking photo's and painting all day. I am shaking.
???What are some good shops, cafe's, markets, hang out spots, etc, In NY???

Oh and so I do not forget! I received several questions in e-mails recently so I thought I would answer them.

Q: What do you use on your hair it is so healthy!
A: I use Pantene Restorative. I also use THIS. You can either put it in when your hair is damp or dry. It makes your hair really shiny but too much can make it look oily.

Q: Where did you get those buckle boots?
A: They are Fiorentini + Baker. Those specific ones aren't sold anymore but THIS one is similar. They're durable and comfortable, highly recommend.

Q: Where in San Francisco do you live?
A: Mission-Dolores area, I guess you could consider it that. But I don't go to Mission High!

Ohmygod, Shoes!

Alexander Wang and YSL sure do know the way to a girls heart. 

Photos: Barneys and Saks.

(Blazer - Goodwill, Tank Top - AA, Jeans - H&M,) 
I went to my best friends Ballet Recital the other day (in the middle). She is so amazingly talented, it is unbelievable. She has received her GED and is really focusing on her art. We will be in NYC together over the summer because she is going to attend the Bolshoi Summer Academy! I'm so excited! 

P.S: I'll be posting some of my art later on!

Cow Holy!

You feel a sudden panic that forces you to race ahead -- though you may know deep down that it's all illusory. Still, you can make the most of your progress by keeping the momentum going for a bit longer.

This is completely and utterly true. Today in class were taking an exam when I remembered that I have an appointment with my school counselor so I rushed through it. Then I felt sick and went home.

Spring Semester

tank-top: uo, jeans: f21, boots: fiorentini + baker
I am so pumped for this new Spring Semester, for several reasons. Numero uno: It is the beginning of Obama's reign, yes I did just say reign. Numero dos: new semester means new grades which is a fresh start! And last but not least, spring collections!!! Oh my, I cannot wait to spend hours in Barney's trying on pieces I will never in my teenage or probably even adult life be able to afford, but it still feels so good. There is something about the feeling of a non-polyester blended fabric that just rings so sweetly to my little ears.

This summer I am going to New York! I was accepted into a summer art program at School of Visual Arts University on scholarship (thank god!), I think it is in Gramercy but I can be mistaken). I will be spending 3 weeks painting and taking some hella sick photographs.

Long Weekend

Dress - AA Long Sleeve Double U-Neck, Vest - Urban Outfitters,

Some of my friends and I left Friday for LA for a 16th Birthday. A few of the girls were really pumped and sort of though of the city in that stereotypical way, "Oh my god I wonder if we'll see blahblahblah". Anyways, we hit up Melrose, Pink Berry, 3rd Street and some other places. We ended up walking through this sketchy area where I found a street vendor who was selling the most amazing rings I've ever seen. I bought two or three but I'll put up pictures of those later.

Drop Crotch

I am not a big fan of the drop crotch. I find that there is a limited amount of people who can thoroughly pull it off without any sort of odd/curious double-take involved. HOWEVER, I have found the ultimate pair on eBay. They whole over-masculine crotch bulging diaper look is completely overshadowed by the sequins.
Oh and check out this sweater, hella sick or what! (Sorry for the hella, I can't help it, I'm from San Francisco.)
