If I went to Coachella

Monday, April 23, 2012

All I've heard about lately is Coachella, Coachella, Coachella.... I am aware of this massive music festival held in the desert of California. I was however, unaware of how big the fashion scene is. I went to Lalapalooza when I lived in Chicago, it was really fun but so hot and humid. I figured Coachella would be neat, but 110 degree temps are not very enticing for me. I've put together an outfit that I would have worn, had I gone to Coachella ;) Perhaps next year I will be able to afford tickets, I think the fashion alone would be worth the trip :)

My Coachella inspired look cost under $35.00

brand: forever 21
purchased from: forever 21
purchase price: $4.80
suggested retail: $4.80
brand: iris basic
purchased from: ross
purchase price: $7.99
suggested retail: unknown
*I'm wearing my new black lace bandeau bra from ebay, but you can't see it*

brand: express
purchased from: the goodwill
purchase price: $5.99
suggested retail: $49.00

brand: unknown
purchased from: ebay
purchase price: $6.00
suggested retail: unknown

*I bought these for my husband because he is a huge Hunter S. Thompson fan. He thought they were comical but he never wears them. I saw them hanging and figured these would have been perfect for the music festival!*

P.S. that is 100% actual booty. I have tried, but I can't get rid of it ;-/

brand: steve madden
purchased from: the goodwill
purchase price: $9.99

B/C Marissa, it makes it really hard to be a hanger with all that junk in my trunk LOL :) I got my bandeau from ebay, because I can't find any retailers who carry them! They're all over ebay though for under 10 bucks :)
