Purple Magazine X Milk Studios

SO LA, A DAY IN THE LYFEFiona LeahyComment

The only thing  in my life that was equivalent to having a Purple Magazine party in Los Angeles is when Boiler Room came to this city last summer. I have worshipped this publication like a holy testament that is responsible for my life aspirations. Every page feeds my soul and contains the most beautiful images. Inspirational to say the least. 

The event was to celebrate the new exhibit at Milk Studios, Anthracite by Oliver Zahm. See more photos from the party here. 

I'm wearing a dress by Burning Torch (made out of one of my favorite textiles, cupro), hat by Brixon, leather shoes from All Saints and clutch from Urban Outfitters. My unbelievably amazing nail ring was custom made by Androgyny Designs, I'M OBSESSED. All the jewelry from Androgyny is made here in LA by the cutest sweetest gal named Courtney. Luv her.

My arm cuff and body chain are a little preview of what I will be taking with me to the desert to Coachella. They are both made by London designer Gina Melosi. Her pieces are made out of recycled metals and fair-trade gemstones. See more here.

TRAVEL, INSPIRATIONFiona LeahyComment

It's festivallllllllllll season. More is more. If you're not wearing 10+ bracelets, you're doing it wrong. And if you're planning on wearing a flower crown,check your calendar because it's not 2013. These are a few favorites I've come up with to wear while playing under the sun out in the desert. I've been to many music festivals and I've learned a few tips from experience on what not to wear to avoid wardrobe malfunctions. 

1. Don't wear a dress. Or a skirt. You will end up on some shirtless guys shoulders at some point, and that will be no bueno. Rompers are so perfect for this! Lately I've been obsessing over this Australian line: Spell and The Gypsy Collective. If you haven't heard of them, you HAVE to check them out!! They sell at Revolve too, so you don't have to worry about international shipping (my worst enemy). 

2. DON'T bring your favorite sunglasses. If you bring then lose your Tom Fords, I will shed a tear for you. I love love love the newest styles that Toms just came out with. They're a good price point and won't fall apart. The reflective lenses are so festival-esque. 

3. Guaranteed compliments if you accessorize yourself with anything from Waffles and Honey. These pieces are timeless and dazzling. And they're handmade in San Francisco! AND if you use the promo code 'tealkitty20' you get 20% off !!!!!! #dreamz

4. I swear on Nars matte lip liners. I have one in all of my purses. They're game changers, life changers, new best friends. Color stays on all day. My favorite color is Walkyrie

5. Don't wear sandals. They will break, you will get blisters and your feet will be so dirty by the end of the day. Wear cute booties or sneakers, you'll be on your feet all day!
