California Love

img_0462as.jpgHey – I’m in L.A. now sitting in my hotel room in Hollywood (which is actually a 1930’s apt. building that has been converted into a somewhat funky but cool hotel) feeling quite Raymond Chandler-esque as I pound on my typewriter wearing a straw fedora. OK – so the typewriter is actually a MacBook…but other than that the old-school Hollywood vibe is intact! Before we move this blog on to some stylish L.A.-based activities however, let’s take a moment to review Coachella 2008
Best Style: Any girl wearing the huge sunglasses and floppy 70’s hat combo. This look combines wealthy 70’s California glamour with a bit of hippie bad girl decadence and danger thrown into the mix. I’m calling this look the “Sharon Tate” and naming her the inspiration for summer 2008.
Best Music Moment: Chromeo late in their set, when they played “Needy Girl”, “Bonafied Lovin'”, and “Fancy Footwork” back-to-back-to-back. Other musical highlights were provided by Hot Chip, Cut/Copy, Santogold, Yelle, and Uffie. Roger Waters was also great – and I’m not really a fan of that sort of thing.
Best Food: A tie between the charcoal-grilled hamburgers and the guacamole and chips in VIP.
Best Party: Anthem magazine’s two-day bash in Cathedral City.
Best Muses: Heidi, Sarah Jane, Julie, Allia…and quite a few mystery girls whose names I will never know but whose style knocked me out.
