You can never have too much of a good thing! When it comes to beautiful music, lyrics and vocals, twin sisters Michelle and Melissa Macedo (Mah-SAY-doh) are the real deal. Although raised in Pasadena,CA, Michelle and Melissa have a unique East Indian/European background, went to different colleges and abroad programs, and have now formed music layered with their personal experiences. Before forming their own band, Michelle recorded an album, La Luna, showcasing her ethereal sound reminiscent of Regina Spektor or Fiona Apple. The duo’s current album, Flags and Boxes, is available on iTunes. Michelle talked to us for a bit and when we asked what she loves to do when she’s not busy recording, she said she can be found on her Top 5 Online Shopping Sites:
Modcloth — My twin is upset that I found out about this even though she splurges too! Now I CANT STOP BUYING THINGS! Everything is so cute and each item has a really clever name to go with it. I love vintage inspired dresses and trinkets-I’m hooked.
One Kings Lane — Most of the things we can only admire from afar but they have amazing furniture sales! There are some little treasures that are definitely worth the design inspiration.
Etsy — Crafty people go on this site and CREATE. Everything is individual and most likely hand made. We like that we know where it’s coming from and that we’re supporting local artisans.
Overstock— This is where we can actually get things we need like sheets and curtains. The prices are affordable and it’s all on sale!
FAB — This one just put me over the edge! FAB is very specialized and send emails to remind me of all the cute things they have. It’s different every day and it is made by individual designers and artists. It’s always a pleasant surprise.
