I'm back home (parents' home) for the week sans laptop, and I realized I haven't posted for a while. Not having any photos in queue, I came to another realization that I haven't done an instagram update in some time as well, which brings: the insta-load, dating back to Coachella.

These were taken a while ago while on yet another exploratory adventure around the condo. It's been almost a year now, and I've just begun to scratch of surface of all the beautiful spots scattered about. Since these photos I've probably dyed my hair four times, with this being the current summer-loving result, but I'll get more into that next time. What I'm really stoked about are my Chloé ballet flats, which I'm constantly enamored by. Is that healthy? I suppose if you're reading/follow this, you've been (or are currently in) a similar situation.

SPONSORED POST BY RIVER ISLAND






River Island, an online store based in the UK, has been one of my straight shot bookmark pages for unique bags and a huge selection of shoes, which is why I’m sharing with you their newest facebook app. As you may have noticed, I'm very picky with my sponsored posts, but it was a given that I had to share this with you, coming from one of my favorite brands! This totally fun app. lets you clip you or your friends' photos, dub them onto a dancing model’s cool moves, and you get to edit the rest! Sharing is simple on facebook, where you can show off your newest routine. Amongst the iconic dances are the robot, the “single ladies,” and many more moves. My personal favorite? Blue Steel, of course. And guys, be not intimidated, there’s the “Man Vogue” too! I easily chose a profile photo, framed my face, chose a dance, and sat back for the laughs! When you’re done knee-slapping, you can even purchase the look featured in the video!

River Island satchels have seriously been some of my favorite bags. They’re so versatile and can be dressed up or down. I also love being able to bring all my essentials without looking like I’ve got a diaper bag in tow! It doesn’t stop there, though; they’ve got tons of casual and formal wear, not to mention the cutest swimsuits. With all their quality pieces, it’s no wonder they’re making a huge mark in the U.S. all the way from the UK!

Spotted this beautiful park near the marina behind the condo, which was perfect for a little picnic. I knew an XL blanket would be in order to prevent any pesty grass stains on this beautifully pleated skirt I received. Midday, the weather fluctuated in summer's favor, but surprisingly everything was breathable and actually complemented the warm surprise Southern Cali so readily receives.

Phewph, that was a lot of copy-pasting. In retrospect I've just realized this is what most would consider a #firstworldproblem, i.e., trivial. Moving on from twitter speak, we've just uploaded a ton of vintage onto the store. Don't forget that you can always subscribe to our newsletter for first dibs. After my last finals this week, I have some exciting new to announce regarding Tarte Vintage. Stay tuned!

I've had this photo for a while, lost in a miscategorized digital folder. This quick snap was taken in between our model's wardrobe change for our Early Summer look book. I wasn't exactly preparing for an outfit shot, but the palm trees and warm sand were calling my name. This post also serves as the first Thrift Gem post, a series I've decided to start after realizing that I really should share more thorough posts on the gems I find, like the Christian Dior silk lace romper I wore to Coachella in this post, which I snagged for a mere dollar. But more about that later! On to this amazing vintage YSL tee I found. I was excited to find this unique, faint  grey version after seeing the white one plastered all over tumblr, and I'm pretty sure I've seen the Biebz wearing one too. I found this one whilst sourcing vintage for the store, however this piece will be staying in my closet. On the bright side, I'll finally be putting up my beloved vintage Chanel lace-up boots, so stay tuned.

I'll apologize in advance for my less than impressive pun of a title, after my apology for such a late post on these Coachella events. The former set is from the Planet Blue x Foam party where I met new friends and old, and tried the most amazing quesadillas with--get this--mangos in them. Amazing. Afterward, we headed  to the Do Over party at the Ace. Feeling like Lady Gaga at the Grammy's, I did a wardrobe change to photograph more of our store's items.
