Last day shots

At Florence and the Machine

At Charlotte Gainsbourg


On our last day we tried to hit it pretty hard.  I mean I would definitely not call us "hard core" (to the contrary, compared to those among us, I would say we are. . .  well, soft core?) but it was a very ambitious day.  We got there just after the gates opened at 11:00 and saw One EskimO, Florence and the Machine (wonderful by the way) Charlotte Gainsbourg, Spoon, Phoenix, and Pavement.  We picked and chose the bands we really wanted to get close to since being touched on all sides for one hour straight and jumping up and down against the force of the crowd is only something we can tolerate in small doses.  I almost passed out during the Florence show, and we had to have a nice sit down after Charlotte, so we took it really easy for the rest of the shows, which were beyond nuts anyway.  Our outfits were really easy that last day too.  It seemed like everyone was pretty relaxed clothing wise on day three (in fact most girls were just in bikinis).  It was so much fun though!  I ended up getting a little chest cold while we were there, maybe due to all the particles floating around.  It looks like it was snowing in those night shots, but thats just stuff we were breathing in I guess.  
Yesterday we all woke, showered and packed.  We left Palm Desert about 9:00 am and I think we all ended up getting home about 10:00 pm Pacific time (My husband and I by car, Mel by car and plane)  We made one stop on our way to LAX, at a drug store where we purchased a shower curtain and some scissors, then in the parking lot, I gave Mel a very spontaneous haircut!   Her final words right before I took the first cut were "This is Crazy!!"  It took less than 15 minutes and we were back on the road.  I think she liked it! I am waiting to see what she says on her blog though!

I...LOVE...YOU...

Thank you thank you thank you for the Charlotte Gainsbourg concert pics! Totally make me feel better (been really sick since yesterday) and brighten up my morning! I'm your devoted fan ::bow::

OH right now I'm beyond...envious that you guys get to attend Coachella!
And you guys look great. Love love love the ensembles, very boho-chic. Comfortable too it looks like. Perfect concert attire.
I chuckled reading that you gave Mel a spontaneous haircut, whose idea was that? LOL. I can't wait to read what she has to say about it and how it looks too!

Have a great day :)

I've never seen Phoenix live! I hope you enjoyed it. You look absolutely beautiful in all of these photographs. Your blog continues to inspire me every time I go on.

Jolie said...

What a fun time you ladies must have had. You look like sisters for sure! You look gorgeous in the last image!

Charmalade said...

When I saw that you went to go to Coachella, I was beyond thrilled (and maybe even a little bit jealous?)! I mean... you saw Florence and the Machine and Phoenix! Eeee was she as good live as her songs are? I absolutely love her strong voice, it's haunting... blahhh, sorry, I'm ranting. I've been to a music festival before, the waiting and bustling can really be tiring-- but it's so worth it to hear the band up close.

Thanks for sharing! I love the relaxed look of your concert attire, but they still remain fashionable. :)

Toast with Charmalade

amanda said...

Alyson said...

Yall look like you are having so much fun! I almost didn't recognize your blonde hair! By the way... Isn't Spoon awesome? I saw them for the first time back in 2005 and then saw them in 2008 here in Nashville. One of my favorite bands!

Kimberellie said...

Okay, I LOVE that playsuit. Love love love love LOVE it. You look totally awesome. It sounds like you had so much fun too!! I am looking forward to when my son is old enough that I can get away for the weekend (right now I can't bare it, though I'm sure he could!!).
