Coachella 2014: What Did We Learn?

Coachella, the music festival that started out fairly popular and blew up into a cultural phenomenon/beacon of basic-ness (props to this Basic Bitches’ Guide to Coachella for keeping it real), is like that tropical vacation/cruise you take with your family every few years;  It’s the only time your dad ever wears a Hawaiian shirt, and you […]

Sandals & Ugly Feet: Together at Last

I’ve just passed the two-year mark in L.A., thus far abstaining from those things called flip-flops, something I often find to be a minor personal victory.  Except when I’m at the beach or the pool, which, having grown up on a lake, is perhaps actually less often than when I lived in Michigan.

Suzy Barrett Hates California

I Hate California: Beaches – watch more funny videos I’m not sure why no one brought these videos to my attention before, and I’m even more perplexed that I didn’t find them myself, but Suzy Barrett‘s Funny or Die video series “I Hate California” is perfect. Beaches are, like, so overrated. In addition to “mermaid […]

Open-Toe Booties are Like the Vests of Feet

This fall is being dominated by two types of shoes–the smoking slipper and the cutout/open-toe boots. Let me start by saying I like both of them.  If something looks good, it looks good–I won’t question the function of it, because really, it’s fashion and at a certain point its function is solely to make you […]
