The Fanny Pack is Back!

One thing we learnt at Coachella, apart from the obvious facts like only Florence could pull off wearing a lycra body suit with a cape, was that cool bitches wear fanny packs. Fact.

Not only are they the perfect colour splash addition to your outfit, they’re just so damn convenient, leaving those hands free for air guitaring. Or fist pumping. Or whatever you like to do with your hands at festivals. The possibilities are endless!

We’re even seeing them on the catwalk…

It makes me wonder why we’ve been fighting them off all these years. Oh yeah this is why….

Coachella Fun & Fashion



It’s almost all we can say about our long weekend of music, sun and red bull at one of the most talked about music festivals in the world.

Amongst our most loved sets were Gotye – with a surprise appearance from Kimbra, Band of Skulls, Santigold – who put on one hell of a danceable show, the unsurpassable goddess Florence (and her machine) and of course; shock highlight of Coachella being a surprise appearance by 2pac himself! Well, not himself but it was still a truly an amazing thing to see.

In terms of fashion on the field (so to speak) there were some pretty hectic costumes running around, including some very under-dressed superheroes, rock stars and super models. But mainly there were just some stand out babes rocking some amazing festival gear.

Here are some of our digital mementos from three of the best days of our lives so far….

Venice Beach

So, with sunny Californian days almost upon us, our Coachella radar is on and flashing. We’ve stumbled across these amazing pics taken by one of our favourite photographers Daniel Kincaid. This latest outing focuses on fresh shapes, vintage washes and the old-faithful denim gets a super-cool turn in the latest Car Mar spring 2012 lookbook.  The LA based denim brand features the beautiful Aussie model and blogger Alexandra Spencer of 4th and Bleeker. Do you think Qantas will let us take our hoola hoops and skateboards??

Car Mar’s spring collection is now exclusively available at LF Stores.

Coachella = Inspiration

Tickets and accommodation are sorted and desert ready outfits are in progress. There is only 32 days left until our eyes and ears are filled with musical love. FOAM Magazine + Planet Blue = hitting the spot. We’ll be channelling the super cool Gillian Zinser for all things Coachamaze.

Press play on that tasty vid and admire our fave pics from the lookbook and behind the scenes goodies.

What will you be wearing?

Ashley Smith – Bangin’

Gappy teeth, hot bod and a bit of a doll face. Yeah, she’s awesome.

Denim, finger dazzlers and worn out boots are our key look for the road trip down to Coachella this year. Who’s joining us?

It’s finally here! Released merely a few hours ago the 2012 COACHELLA line up is out of control even by the toughest of standards. From Bon Iver and Florence and the Machine to Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre (see official line up poster below) this festival has just rewritten the definition of California cool. Can Somebody fast forward to April, pretty please?!  Ticket will be released this Fri 10am PST time, if you’re prepared to get down and dirty (like us) to fight for one of these puppies we suggest you arm yourself with at least 2 computers, a smart phone and a tablet device. You know, just for safe measure… Game on.
