On Top Of The World

Gwen skirt: UNIF
Top; Forever 21
Leggings; Target

Thanks once again to the amazing Mariaya Lynn for these photos. These were actually for a school project of hers, which she did amazingly. The contrast of the colors between the balloons and my blue plaid skirt. Which, by the way, I am IN LOVE WITH. Unif never fails to satisfy. I just love the 90's grunge vibe it gives off, and blue is one of my favorite colors, so how could I turn this down?! I treated myself for my birthday and spent the money on it, and boy is it worth it. It's the most comfortable and warm skirt ever. 
Also, how beautiful is this Fresno sunset?! (Although most of that is due to smog, uhhh). The spiral parking garage is one of the best spots for photos in the city. Especially at sunrise or sunset. You get a perfect view. Fresno can look kinda pretty from high above the city. I know it may not be most people's ideal place to live, but it's home to me, and I appreciate what I do have here.

Kuppajoe & The Fresno Music Scene

As you all know, I've been working at a local venue for about four years now. A few weeks ago, an art student living in San Francisco, Amanda Ramirez, interviewed some of us Fresno locals, asking us about the state of the Fresno music scene and what could be done to improve it. I was one of the one to get interviewed. Above are some screenshots from the video interview, and you can check out the actual video here. 
Check it out and let me know what you think! Help make a difference in your own local music community. Music is one of the few things that can bring people together, and there is nothing greater than being in a room surrounded by live music. 


P.S. I finally made a Facebook page, be sure to click like here.

Fairy Tale

Dress; Vintage Gunne Sax
Shoes; Dolce Vita Joannas (via Urban Outfitters)
Turquoise rings; Vintage
Silver Forest ring; The Laundry Room

I feel so very much like some sort of story tale princess in these photos, and I absolutely love it. Demi Rueda totally killed it with these photos. Something about how she captured the lighting, it's so very magical. One of my old corworkers, and friend, Delores, gave me this vintage Gunne Sax dress from the 70's. No one in her family wears in, and she knows of my appreciation for vintage. Ever so grateful to her. This dress is gorgeous. Not something I would usually pick out for myself, but after wearing it for the first time, I fell in love.

Hope your week is off to a great start!
