So, festival season is in full swing – as if your Insta feed over the past few weeks could ever let you forget. Amiright?
All joking aside, I personally love the fact that music festivals have evolved into a giant fashion show – you know, on top of being a solid good time featuring three days of killer tunes. It’s all artsy goodness to me.
As crazy as it may seem, I actually look forward to the overabundance of Coachella and Stagecoach posts flooding my social feeds left and right because I can’t get enough of the creative outfits.
What can I say? I’m a chronic shopper and I love some good outfit inspo right at my fingertips. Seriously, I’ve discovered some of my absolute favorite brands solely because I’ve stalked my favorite influencers during festival season.
Now, I’ve never been to Coachella myself, but this past weekend wasn’t my first Stagecoach rodeo by any means.
I took the past few years off from the giant Indio desert bash after we discovered Route 91 Harvest in Las Vegas because CROWDS. Damn, has Stagecoach blown up in size since my first time attending the festival in 2011. And that’s nothing compared to Coachella weekend one (or so I’ve heard from many an Uber driver – bless their souls).
Anyways, enough about crowds, back to the outfits…
I posted a few of my festival looks on Insta and actually got a lot of questions about some of the pieces I was wearing, so I figured what better place to share all the details with you than right friggin’ here?
Look #1 – Black Velvet If You Please
Let me just start by saying I would like to live in these pants. Actually, that’s all. I’d just like to live in these pants for the rest of my days. Please and thanks.
Details: Velvet Bells – Show Me Your Mumu/Revolve – similar style linked below, Booties – Matisse Footwear/12th Tribe, Denim Jacket – Levi’s, Belt is from LF back in the day, so unfortunately it’s sold out, Sunnies – Ray Ban, and Lynard Skynard Lace-up Crop – vintage find.
Look #2: Crushing It
So, velvet was kind of the unintentional inspo for this quickie trip to the desert I guess, because it’s part of my second look as well (I even packed my velvet Frankies kini that I didn’t get a chance to wear).
Now, shame on me I was too busy having fun, and didn’t get a closeup of this outfit, but I will link the items (or similar items) below so you can get a better idea of what I was working with.
Also, I was a repeat offender with these booties, shorts, and belt because I didn’t get a chance to go shopping beforehand, soo deal with it, mmkay?
Details: Sunnies – Ray Ban, Choker is a mystery. Maybe from Luna B many moons ago? Not sure, so I linked a similar style below, Denim Jacket – Levi’s, Crushed Velvet Bodysuit – Sam Edelman, Black Denim Shorts – I’ve had these forever and can’t remember where they’re from, so similar style is linked, Belt – Nasty Gal, and Booties – Matisse Footwear – the Caty bootie linked below is a little different, but the exact pair I’m wearing in the pic is linked in Look #1 details – they also come in black. FIRE.
Look #3: Bells of the Ball
Details: Sunnies – Ray Ban, Necklace was an Etsy find actually, so similar linked below, Bell Sleeve Bodysuit – Misguided, Belt – Nasty Gal, Crossbody Bag – my exact Rebecca Minkoff bag is no longer in stock, but below are two of her similar styles, and Booties – Matisse Footwear – the Harvey Western Booties I’m wearing are also sold out, but I’ve linked another killer western-style pair from Matisse.
Well, my lovelies, that’s all for this festi lookbook. Not too shabby for putting it all together last-minute and only attending for a day and half, right?
If you have any questions about the pieces I’ve linked, let me know in the comments below.
Until next time.
