Coachella Weekend 1 & 2…both equally transcending, the memories of the festival will not be soon forgotten! As we leave the desert, we’re already transfixed on the next adventure. This time it’s off to the South of France to stroll along the Seine in search of sun and flowers for our hair. Stay tuned for updates on St. Tropez dreams in our very near future, but right now we’re in the present and it’s time to give presents to the winners of Coachella Weekend 2 #sanctuaryINcoachella contest!!
Coachella. You amazingly fun thing you…it’s been real this year. Although, we knew the day would come that Coachella 2013 would come to an end, we are happy as we dance to the very end. For Weekend 2 / Day 3, it’s all about the airy clouds above our heads and sun shining down while we listen to the Brit babe, James Blake.

The Perfect Fit shorts in Cloud Air are our go to shorts for any occasion that calls for comfort while still keeping it cute…which is really any time, right? Here’s a sneak peek at James performance of his song Retrograde from last weekend’s set, which we had the pleasure of taking in and now we’re looking forward to round 2!
One of the artists we have really grown to love over the past few years is Grimes. Her ability to combine so many different elements into her music like industrial, electronic, and pop but still manages to be etherial and moody always inspires us. She is a definite must see at Coachella for Day 2 / Weekend 2. Her music will be inspiring the look that day, as well. We’ll be channeling the space invaders of sound…
We’re also really looking forward to Postal Service. They never cease to put us in a great moody mood. Here’s a great clip from their show last weekend at Coachella
Since Coachella expanded into 2 weekends, we figured our style guides should follow suit and have a second round as well….natch.
For weekend 1, we only caught the end of LA band, Local Natives, set so this coming weekend we’re determined to have the full experience with them. It’ll be Natives at Sunset and we’ll be drawing from the animal within…
SanctuaryInCoachella Weekend 2 – Animal Farm
Camo, tribal, & animal print…all together now..we’re going there. As mentioned yesterday, we absolutely loved Lee “Scratch” Perry’s set at Coachella on Day 1 last weekend, so we’re definitely going to check him again. Also on the list of MUST SEE: The Neighbourhood, Lord Huron, and Youth Lagoon.
And..FOALS, who have been coming in hot on the radar as of late. Loving this song and the video is pretty killer, too. Watch it. You’ll like it.
It’s Monday after the first weekend of Coachella 2013, and it’s official…we survived and we want MORE! The entire weekend was spectacular from beginning to end. Excited to share some of our favorite moments as well as happy to announce the winners from weekend 1′s #SanctuaryInCoachella contest!
Drum roll pleeeeeeease…and the WINNERS are……

And now…here’s is some of the best moments from Weekend 1 / Coachella 2013
Lee Scratch Perry was by far one of our favorites from Friday! He completely blew our minds when he rocked the Gobi stage.

Day 2, we did a little party hopping as well as festival’ing. First up, Nylon Magazine’s party at a “house”…yeah we’ll go with house…on a lake in Palm Desert..not too far from the festival.
Eve killed it in true private party style, and the crowd was effortlessly festival chic while drinking coconut water courtesy of Vita Coco.
Then, it was off to the fest! Some of our favorite performances on Day 2 were Hot Chip, who are always super fun. Also, the xx, definitely did NOT disappoint nor did our long time beloved…New Order.

Another fun point in the night was running into one of our favorite bloggers, The Man Reppler herself, Leandra Medine, who was sweet enough to snap a quick picture with us!

Then alas…Day 3 approached and although the end was impending, we enjoyed it to the last second! After leisurely sleeping in, we rallied ourselves to a couple pre-parties. First up was the Hard Rock Hotel Music Lounge, where we enjoyed Corzo Tequila snow cones and the Braid Bar.

Then checked out, Third Man Records party at The Ace Hotel…

before heading to the festival! Thoroughly enjoyed Wile Belle’s performance and also LOVED Tame Impala’s set. Check it out here -
There was a bit of a sand storm around this same time, so we took refuge in the Coachella Art Boutique. We fell in love with the prints by Ben Eines. Seriously…WANT.

White waiting for the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, we just basked in the beauty that is Coachella by night.

Needless to say…they killed it.

That’s a wrap! Coachella 2013 Weekend 1 is a history.
We are well on our way into Day 1..PAINTING IT BLACK in outfits a la Kate Moss at Glastonberry. Who’s on the list today? Alt-J, Lou Reed, Local Natives, Passion Pit, Beach House, and and and…..we’re going to take as much of it in as possible!
Tomorrow it’s all about being “pri-metric” but for Sunday…Sunday will be a sweet Southern Wild moment. We’ll be channeling the wide open spaces of prairies we saw earlier this spring with sweet prints and southern elegance.

Although we are very much in THIS moment right now, we are also whole heartedly looking forward to the likes of The Lumineers as well as Allen Stone. Here’s the song that made us fall in love with Allen Stone
For us, Coachella Day 2 is all about The xx & New Order..so naturally the outfit is going to be inspired by the music.
Hopi Pottery Charmers for the Geometric girl in all of us
Black, white, and some color blocking in for good measure is symbiotic with the emotive and dreamy style of both of bands. We’re ready to be transfixed by their music while gazing out into the open desert skies.
Coachella is just a few days away at this point and we simple CAN. NOT. WAIT.
As we’ve mentioned before, we’ve been loving the band, Alt-J, for a while and more than likely so are you as the buzz around this band is hard to miss as of late. The one who we’re most excited to see, though is probably Lou Reed.
This may have something to due with the fact that we’ve been watching vintage videos in the design room lately like this one from 1974 in Paris
“Standing on the corner, suitcase in my hand.”
Coachella – Day 1/Weekend 1 – Paint it Black
Moody and dark but still with a bit of whimsy thrown in because we certainly don’t take ourselves too seriously…come on now..
The beginning of the year started out with adventures through the New Frontier in search of rugged newness and wide open spaces. We’ve been making our way West, though…South by Southwest to be exact…and now it’s all about MUSIC.
The Festival Girl is back in full force and she’s hitting SXSW right now then it’s onto Coachella. These festivals are full of eye candy in every form one could imagine, but the distractions are fleeting because it’s impossible not to be mesmerized by the untamed landscapes of which these events take place. The soul of music and passion is always alive in the desert, even when the instruments have long been silenced.
Embroidered Boy Charmer
Get crafty in your SXSW style and take full advantage of the Embroidered trend, RIGHT NOW. Sanctuary’s Embroidered Boy Charmer, paired with a simple black tank, flatters your shape with leg lengthening embroidery details. Don’t stop there, though.
Add a bold turquoise necklace from DanniJo and elongate those legs even more with a great pair of mixed material black and snake skin heeled sandals. Then, top it off with a pair of quintessential sunnies and some dewy cheeks, which you can achieve with Nars Cream Blush in…you guessed it, Cactus Flower.
