Coachella Upgrades

This weekend, I will be venturing to Indio, California for the only reason I know to visit this part of Cali — Coachella. For my 25 years on Earth, I’ve been a Coachella virgin and as of this Friday that will all change.

I’m no professional organizer (my personal closet isn’t perfect) but there’s a few things I’ve learned in my quarter-of-a-century lifetime that I think deserves some sharing. Especially something I like to call the Uber of dry cleaning. Yes, this exists.

It seems there’s not much of a “middle class” (or shall we say middle clasp? BOOM!) in the world of handbags, but there is if you really look for it.

Edie Parker

Plain and simple, today’s post was inspired by Anna Gunn’s clutch from the SAG Awards over the weekend (AKA the best accessory to ever hit the red carpet). And I wasn’t the least bit surprised when I found out who the designer was.
