Top Two Photos: Hagop Photo
Back to Coachella coverage :)
After my early night I kicked off Saturday morning with a little brunch back at ShopStyle x PopSugar, but this time with CFDA, Mara Hoffman, Cynthia Vincent and Trina Turk. I had the opportunity to made this adorable little Cynthia Vincent purse and the brunch was a delightful affair, but the real debauchery began when my squad arrived.
Yes, I was no longer fated to be alone, but was joined by friends, Hagop (who acquired the instant position of “Official Photog”), Amanda (of Feast Fashion Faves), Kimberly (of According to Kimberly), Andrew (stylist extraordinaire) and Katie (All Glammed Up) all joined me. Whilst we had every intention of getting to the Rachel Zoe party (and despite being VIP’s!) we were not able to make it up the mountain as the event was at capacity when we made it to check in. So instead, Hagop, Katie and I headed over to the Sparrows Lodge where the most peaceful Coachella party I had ever attended was underway.
All photos by Hagop, except the one of him in the middle obvi.
The Sparrows Lodge event was dubbed “The Retreat”, and for good reason. With by far the best selection of food and drink (from sponsors such as Golden Road and The Fat Radish), the best celeb attendees (Alexa Chung), live piano music and shade (a hot commodity in the desert naturally) resplendent with pillows and pretty linens – it was my favourite stop of the weekend – and that was without even indulging in the massages and facials that were available.

After a day of parties we decided hanging out at the hotel for a little while would be a good idea. Cue photo shoots galore. There is an amusing anecdote involving a security guard, but let’s just say what happens in Palm Springs stays in Palm Springs #OneCoconutTreeHill.
To wrap up Day Two we had a rather rambunctious dinner at Ace Hotel (thanks to a game of “I’ve Never”) and ended our evening at a random gay club in downtown Palm Springs.
