GUEST BLOG POST: Coachella Moments with Good, Bad, and Fab’s Jenny Wu

I’m going through major withdrawal at the moment. Coachella withdrawal. After all, I’ve just spent a weekend surrounded by friends immersed in music and indulgent parties. There were so many great Coachella moments-ones that leave me longing for more and eagerly anticipating Coachella 2014!

Fabulous daytime pool parties to cool down from the desert heat. Pictured here are the BCBG x Benefit Beauty Bungalow, the Lacoste L!ve pool party, and the Stylecaster backyard bbq.

 

 

 

 

I had such a fun time rocking out to Santigold at the H&M Coachella party. The lavish afternoon soiree was held on a breathtaking estate complete with its own lake, paddle boards, a popcorn station, an ice cream station, and a shaved ice stand.

 

 

 

My sunnies, my lifesaver, my Coachella bff.

 

 

 

It’s so easy to get lost in the music at Coachella. My favorite sets were The xx, Phoenix, and Fedde le Grande.

 

 

 

Lights out Coachella….for now.

Haunted Hiking

With Halloween happening mid-week this year, I felt like celebrating in a more low key manner than usual. My friends recently got some new camping equipment so it was perfect timing to get into the Halloween spirit with a camping trip! Some of you might be thinking, what does camping have to do with Halloween?! Let’s see, leaves falling on the trees, telling ghost stories by the camp fire, and eating too many sweets (nobody can resist having just one s’more!). The trip was definitely festive in spirit.

We travelled north from Los Angeles and within two hours arrived at our camping destination, Bear Campground. I was reassured that no bears lived nearby, but I was a bit skeptic. Did they just pull the name out of thin air? Nevertheless, there were no run-ins with bears and the weather turned out to be beautiful. We hiked, played card games, and simply enjoyed nature. Check out the gigantic pine cone we found on the side of the road as well as the pictures from our hike!

CIA: Not Just National Security

This past weekend, I headed to Westchester to celebrate my boyfriend and his brother’s birthday with their family outside the city. From their home in Yorktown (think mountain trails, crickets chirping, and the crisp feel of autumn in the air) we took a drive up to the CIA. While lie detector tests, and information on past secret operatives may have been more appealing to the boys, we were not headed to the Central Intelligence Agency. Where we were headed, was the Culinary Institute of America.

Alma Mater to famous epicurean alumni such as David Burke, Anthony Bourdain, Rocco DiSpirito, and even Lonnie and Karen Kane’s own niece, the CIA is known for it’s rigorous training in technique, taste, and creative culinary endeavors. The beautiful campus, idyllic in the New York countryside, boasts several student restaurants where family and foodies alike can go to sample their executions of five-star delicacies.

We ate in the famed french outpost, Escoffier and the menu and wine list did not dissapoint.  Our server, a little green for an impending graduate, made a few mistakes along the way but more than made up for it with his flaming flambe.

Hot Child in the Desert

My travels this week took me to Palm Desert. The area is a bit more than one hundred miles east of Los Angeles, but it feels like a whole other world. One of the most interesting things about California is that there are so many different climates within the state, it’s easy to find interesting places to travel. The Palm Desert/Palm Springs area is known for it’s phenomenal spas and golf courses, which makes for a relaxing vibe within the community. During the Spring and Winter, it’s as if everyone in the area has dodged harsher climates to vacation in the desert. Picture yourself wearing golf shorts and a polo shirt, linen pants with a linen tank, white capri’s and a colorful top or a caftan by the pool and you might be ready to take the journey to Palm Desert!

As I drive from LA to the desert, the scenery becomes increasingly beautiful and the temperature starts to increase. It’s not unusual to leave LA at 65 degrees and arrive to the desert at 95 degrees! With Fall in full swing, I’m ready for boots and a cozy sweater, but these seasonal basics are just not an option in the desert.

This week, however, I was determined to wear Fall fashion! For those of you in similar hot climates, I’m going to pass on my outfit tips that helped me achieve the look of fall in wear now materials. During my visit, I felt comfortable, ready for fall, and confident that I wasn’t going to pass out from heat exhaustion in my outfit.

Tunic: I gravitate towards black, but it’s definitely not the best option for hot weather. I like that this Karen Kane grey python print tunic is neutral yet not to much of a departure from black. Try to find light neutrals to replace black. Also light knits are key. This top is not too thick and not once was I hot in long sleeves!!!

Legging: This is quickly becoming one of my favorite items in my wardrobe, it’s so soft on! What’s nice about this Karen Kane legging is that it’s thin but not see through. A substantial legging is key for the season and an item that will guaranteed get a lot of use.

Flats: Even though I’m dying to get into boots, it’s still too hot to make the transition. A nice pair of flats is a great option in this case.

Windmills are everywhere on the drive to Palm Desert.

Here’s the Palms and Desert all in one pic!

Posing in my new fall look!

Sequoia Trees in September

As a Regional Merchandiser for Karen Kane, I get to travel to different stores all over the West Coast. It’s exciting and there is always an adventure! This week I made the trip from Los Angeles to Fresno California. That’s right, I made my way through one of the biggest agricultural capitals of the country! Not sure that exclamation point was necessary, but nevertheless I have never made this drive and it was a nice change of pace.

While travelling there isn’t much time to take in the sites, which is kind of a bummer. So over the years I’ve gotten into the habit of stretching the truth. It’s a bit shameful, but it makes me feel like I’ve soaked in all the area has to offer. Somehow driving past a lot of produce being grown, that is visible from the interstate, becomes me going apple picking. This week was no exception and I hit the jackpot for a white lie adventure story.

I drove by a sign for Sequoia Park! Sequoia is the name of our newest Karen Kane Fall Collection. Once I saw the sign, I pictured myself in the park and imagined what forest-like images gave Karen design inspiration. I had a seminar in Bloomingdales this week where several women tried on items from the Sequoia Collection (below). Can you see the inspiration compared to the beautiful “Sequoia tree” I spotted?

I’ve gotten burned over Cheryl Tiegs, blown up for Raquel Welch. But when I end up in the hay it’s only hay, hey hey. I might jump an open drawbridge, or Tarzan from a vine. ‘Cause I’m the unknown stuntman that makes Eastwood look so fine.
