It’s safe to say this year in the desert with Garage Clothing tops the last. For those of you who have never been, let us paint you a picture.
Sky – empty of clouds during the day and as if someone pulled only the good crayons out of the box at night
Smell – a combination of a 12 year old boy after soccer practice, the bonsai tree section of a garden store and the tastiest treat you could imagine. It’s confusingly pleasant.
People -We are convinced that at the front entrance of the festival there’s a magic invisible forcefield everyone walks through that either 1. Makes everyone extra attractive or 2. Makes your eyes see everyone as being abnormally attractive. Also every seems extra happy. You could probably guess why.
Possibility – We have learned to never doubt the Possibilities of Indio. If you’re going to get picked up by a stranger like Baby in Dirty Dancing while your best friend holds hands with more strangers in a ring-around-the-rosie circle around you…. Coachella is the place for it. (Yes this happened to us)
Fashion – Coachella is it’s own weird little world, think Truman show mixed with Halloween mixed with NYFW. You can get away with a lot more than normal and most people take advantage of that. For us, we stuck close to our style roots but played it up with hats and jewelry that we usually hold hostage until festival season hits. Shoutout to Garage Clothing for yet another amazing year of fun and clothes. Shop our outfits below!
Artists We Saw:
ACDC – (We watched from afar because SO TIRED. but SO COOL TO SEE)
DJ Snake (We actually got in the crowd for this one & danced however one dances to EDM)
Angus & Julia Stone (We have both loved them for so long & to see them live was absolutely beautiful)
Azealia Banks (Never had heard her music before, but she might be the coolest person ever)
We first stopped by the Refinery 29 pool party & had some brunch & uptown funked the dance floor.
Artists We Saw:
Jack White (PLAYED THE WHITE STRIPES & all the jams & we died)
Hozier (We laid in the grass eating watermelon listening to Hozier’s beautiful voice)
Alt-J (Amazing band even more amazing live)
Andrew McMahon & the Wilderness (We grew up on Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate so to see Andrew McMahon together was an actual dream. He even threw one those parachutes you did in P.E. class into the crowd for his last song)
We pool party hopped during the day before heading to the festival.
& the Coachella caterpillar turned into a butterfly on the 3rd day (MADELINE CALLED THIS DAY 1)
Artists We Saw:
Brand New (Again, grew up with Brand New so it was so exciting to see them & reminisce)
Florence & the Machine (This is the set where we had our dancing circle & Madeline got lifted in the middle by a random man)
Ryan Adams (We took off our shoes, spun around, and danced our hearts out. Ryan Adams was absolutely AMAZING.)
Drake (We know KayKay LOVES Drake. LOVES. We danced a lot, but were actually a little disappointed. But we know you’ll get em next time champagne papi. We believe in you.)
Thank you again to Garage & Coachella for another amazing year !!!!
Already having withdrawls.
until next time
Finally pictures from our shoot with Keds are here !!!!!! WOO. DANCE. BACKFLIP. YA.
If you don’t remember, we did a shoot in Montauk, NY with our homies at Keds last August! We had a grand ole time (see our attempt at vlogging it).
We danced a lot & made all the new pals. We’ve always been huge fans of Keds because they stand for a lot of the same things we do. It was so nice to be surrounded by so many likeminded (& super freaking fun!) people. We always want to be encouraging girls to be brave & own who they are. We don’t want anyone to filter any part of themselves, but instead embrace all parts, the good, the bad, & everywhere in between.
Keds gets it. That’s why we are so incredibly honored to be apart of their Brave Girls, alongside some amazing girls.
See our full interview with Keds below. Find out some things you may not know about us and watch us cry because…friendship.
NEW JAMS! We even got it to you before the month was halfway over. YUS. BLESS. We love May because it’s our birthday month so we picked some of our favs to jam to (with you). Hope you enjoy them too!! Follow our may playlist here!
& be sure to follow us on spotify to keep up with all our playlists!
YAY FOR MAY. IT’S ALMOST SUMMER!
We had so much fun at our Keds shoot that we even tried “vlogging” it. Keyword: tried. See our attempt & pls still be our friend.
