vampire weekend part II

My oh so attractive pre-show selfie 

Part two of my two post concert extravaganza! As you may know, Vampire Weekend and Beirut played the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday. The result of this pairing was nothing less than perfect. Usually, I'm not the biggest fan of the Bowl as a venue in general, but for some reason everything was absolutely spot on. Above are some photos from my box as well as one from the after party. Ezra, CT, Rostam, and Baio are all such amazing people, I am so grateful to have met them!
On a side note, there was a delay in my instagram posts due to poor reception at the venue, but all videos are up now so go take a look @thebrunettebandit!

Here's to their next show.

p.s. if you aren't familiar with VW or Beirut, go check them out! Some suggestions:

hello, autumn

Sweater weather is (finally) here! I am so utterly ecstatic that fall has come. Hello pumpkin spice lattes, over-sized sweaters, and a seasonal excuse for not shaving our legs! These are a few of my fall finds from yesterday. (yes, I know espadrilles are for summer but California winters are, well, summer) 

Here's to fuzzy socks and spiced everything.

1950 Called...

.... It wants its tablecloth back. 

 Shooting in this gingham-esque Topshop dress was such a trip. Definitely a throwback to my childhood uniform of daisy print frocks circa 2003ish. But I mean, c'mon who wouldn't love such a perfect floral dress?
Recently I've been in such a retro phase. Yesterday, for example, I paid homage to Rachel and Monica circa 1998(Friends, get with the program, kid) in a pair of Lucky Brand overall shorts and today it's a dress reminiscent of my Barbie days. Throwing it back to the good old days like it's nobody's business.

a lil' red

I was recently part of a photography series depicting modern day princesses and if you haven't already caught on I was little red riding hood. Personally, I love the whole concept. It's super kitschy and it was an added bonus is that I happened to have a perfect pair of riding boots. I have to say, it feels great to be back to blogging after a month hiatus. Seriously, that was a needed break, but I miss the blogosphere far too much. 

Happy September,
