Award winning film director, writer and producer David Lynch has taken on the task of sharing these enlightening techniques with the world with his nonprofit organization, The David Lynch Foundation.
Our girl Alyssa Miller (@luvalyssamiller) says she owes her sanity to T.M.; so when her friend and fashion publicist Robyn Berkeley proposed a capsule collection of lounge and activewear benefiting the David Lynch Foundation, she was all on board.
“It changed my life. You spend twenty minutes in the morning and twenty minutes at night giving yourself the time to sort through your emotions. It’s all about change from within, like our T-shirt logo says, and this collection just made sense because it’s about eating well, working out, taking care of yourself, and giving back.” – Alyssa

Coachella Music Festival is right around the corner and everyone wants to know what to wear. While many are unable to seek tips from a pro, NOUSzine went straight to the source and covered Coachella style from day to night. LF Robertson’s in-house style expert, Ashley, shared with us on how to take your look from day to night without losing your sense of personal style. Watch as she shares how she styled our girls, Phoenix and Kym in four great outfits. You can’t lose with these tips!
For day, Ashley chose a flirty flower girl look for Kym. Flowers galore but roughed up with a pair of amazing military style boots by Steve Madden.
“One of the main trends, going on is the crochet; inside the shredding we have the crotchet exposed. Another must have for Coachella is the cropped tops, right here we have the Mullal floral top. Perfectly fits her, super comfy with the elastic band on the back. Another big trend going forward is the floral headdress. We’ve got the Steve Madden Troopa boots and to add a little bit girly flair we put the ruffled socks with it just to make it a little bit girly but rough it up for the desert. Also we have the Rebbeca Minkoff new spring 2013 cross body bag has the studs going down the side so a little bit of edge but still very girly.”
Phoenix’s rocked a bohemian inspired look, including a lace bustier to the aztec print.
“We have the paper heart soft shorts with the little fringe details. You’re going to see a lot of soft shorts going forward going into the spring/summer season with the aztec print. We have the bohemian headdress, the Rebecca Minkoff bag, super cute that can hold just about anything you need for Coachella. down here we have the M.I.A. gladiator sandals, super cute, they also come in white which is really great. We just like this whole look together, it’s very cohesive with the bohemian style, perfect for Coachella no matter how hot it gets she’s going to stay nice and cute and cool.”
Kym can’t be missed partying on the field in a neon green beanie, bleached ACDC tee and distressed denim.
“So night one outfit that Kym’s got on is very edgy rocker-chic. We have the ‘Furst of a Kind’ bleached out vintage tee. We spend a lot of time remaking the vintage tees. You cannot find these anywhere except LF. Down below we have the Report Ackley boot. You’re going to see a ton of exposed boots, lots of buckles going forward. Another perfect choice for Coachella, that way your feet don’t get too ruffed up out in the desert. We have the neon beanie going on so you can’t get lost at night, your friends will be able to find you.”
Phoenix kept her bohemian inspired look going through the night in a dress with aztec print and Steven Madden Thunda boots.
“Phoenix night time outfit for Coachella consists of this really cute angel diva dress, you’ve got the aztec print going down the front so you can still carry that bohemian sense of style throughout the night. We have this really awesome Carmar denim jacket, a bunch of distressing to kind of rough it up, edge it up just a little bit but the dress still keeps it very girly.”
