Coachella: Music and Fashion
How do you usually spend your weekends? Well, the usual. You read a good A.M. Homes book or maybe do some DIY stuff and watch The Walking Dead episodes for the 5th time because you have to wait like forever for the next season. Or do the laundry and just be a slob for two days. OR YOU CAN GO TO COACHELLA.
Labelled as “anti-Woodstock” due to the organizers’ desire to book acts based on artistry than radio popularity,Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival’s main purpose is to recreate European style music festivals with small crowds. So you can imagine the whole scenario – fully booked Coachella hotels, Coachella tickets for sale and some real good music. As of today, it’s considered as one of the most famous and largest music festivals in the United States. I must say, these organizers are filthy rich.
Coachella Festival is originally about music. Or perhaps about fashion too. Throughout the years, Coachella fashion style revolves around denim shorts, mom jeans, high waisted shorts, fringes and boots. And don’t forget the messy hair look and fishtails, and hippie hair accessories. Some go for the gypsy look while others relive the 90s fashion trend. Indeed, the fashion industry is alive in the desert. No more boring weekends.
So how do you keep up with Coachella festival? Pretend that you’re somewhere in California, all packed up and ready for the festival. Imagine that sunset and that Coachella feeling that lingers in you as you go home.
I’m a fan of 90s fashion style, especially street fashion. I’ve had several attempts to revive Alicia Silverstone’s looks in some of her old movies. Tattered denim shorts, comfy shirts or crop tops and boots – my most vivid memory of her. Not such a bad outfit for the Coachella event since some concert goers might wear something denim like mom jeans or anything stonewashed or faded. And don’t forget how hot it is in California.
Wide leg palazzo pants are just too comfortable for me. Coachella concert goers also go for a bohemian hippie look. I paired this bohemian gypsy patterned palazzo pants with a fit top and it contrasts my wide leg pants. As expected, women fashion is always complex.
I’m a wannabe blogger who loves the 90s and Dr. Martens, an annoying mother and a jealous fan of A.M. Homes.
This blog is a reflection of my struggles to stay sober, creative and relevant for the past eight years. I deal with my very minor (perhaps imaginary) social anxieties through blogging about beauty products that I bought compulsively and conquering awkward feelings whenever I face the camera to awkwardly share my fashion outfits.
It’s orgasmic to finally let go of my thoughts and live different lives. Adios. May you find solace in other realms of the universe.
