Wardrobe Wednesdays: Freida Pinto in the H&M Tent @ Coachella 2017

Freida Pinto, H&M Tent, Coachella 2017

The amount of boho and vintage fashion at Coachella 2017 in Indio, California was simply outstanding!

Slumdog Millionaire‘s Freida Pinto caught my eye in a well put together boho chic ensemble while visiting the H&M tent at the music festival this year.

She wore a green khaki tie front wide-leg pant with an off-the-shoulder crop top and a black fedora. It’s the perfect outfit for a festival, as the weather changes throughout the day, leaving you feeling not too hot and not too cold all at once.

My fave part of the outfit is the fedora. I have a small collection of fedoras myself, and I wouldn’t mind adding one like Freida’s to it.

Our Boho Queen Vanessa Hudgens was spotted at the 7th annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in LA looking absolutely radiant in a white scallop lace dress.

She completed the look with a pair of wine red platform sandals and a braided crown hairdo. Her cheeks looked blushed up with a rose pink tint as well.

Gallery Mondays: ‘Elevate’ by Joyce Dallal

Elevate, Joyce Dallal

Since everyone is going on spring break, I decided to pull this gem by Joyce Dallal from my camera roll.

I saw this piece at LAX on the way back from Los Angeles in September 2015. Called Elevate, Joyce Dallal uses paper airplanes to symbolize the departures that occur at the airport on a daily basis.

What I love most about the installation is the way it’s positioned. The paper airplanes are spiraling upwards in unison, almost as if they intend to fly straight out the window.

She topped off the look with a black designer bag and some comfy black strap sandals. I believe she met up with her husband for a meal at some point during the day, making this the perfect laid back brunch outfit.

Gallery Mondays: ‘The Musicians’ Brawl’ by Georges de la Tour

IMAG3432

I saw this painting at Getty Museum while on vacation in California back in September. It’s starting to get pretty cold in New York so I’m missing that Cali weather again.

There’s a lot going on in French Baroque painter Georges de La Tour’s The Musicians’ Brawl. When I first saw it, I couldn’t help but laugh, not only at the subject of the painting but also at the note next to it from Getty Museum challenging visitors to strike a pose similar to one of the subjects in the painting.

The painting is supposedly depicting two musicians getting into a fight, one trying to squeeze a lemon in the other’s eye while three other men watch it all go down. The man about to encounter the fierce burning acidity of a lemon is blind, so that just makes the whole situation even more heartless. Also, the guy on the far left is the blind man’s guide. Isn’t he supposed to be helping instead of standing there with his jaw dropped?!

May the holiday bar fights begin?
