Best of Coachella 2017

I’ve given up on indie-rock-pop music festivals approximately 2 years ago when I had the worst time at Osheaga and realized I was the only one bored because I was the only one there for the music (and was not high) and didn’t care at all about how I looked. Ever since the first time I went to a rock music festival (I was 17) I’m all about “Will I be able to pee comfortably in this?” “Will I get sunburns in this?” “Is there enough space in my tent for this?” “Will my feet hurt in this after 15 hours standing up?” so girls in flower crowns and white crochet dresses with sandals or boys showing off their six packs in trucker hats that attend the entire festival (whereas I buy tickets to only the days I’m interested in) but have no clue about the music started to freak me out. I’m still attending rock festivals where we dance and jump in dust all day and eventually sleep in our car at night, but …

Best Of Coachella 2016 Style

Festival style is a sensitive issue for me. I have to mediate the battle between the fashion girl in me that cherishes every opportunity to dress up and the music girl that has been going to festivals since she was 18, wearing chunky sweaters and ugliest pair of jeans in her wardrobe just to be comfortable. Frankly I dressed up better than that for my festivals after that, but my quest for comfort and never looking too dressed up in the presence of sacred rock n roll never wavered. Which is why combat boots or sneakers paired with denim shorts and oversized tees is still my favorite look among a sea of fringes, floral crowns and white mini dresses. The only fancy looks I like lately are the ones with crochet tops and skirts, that’s my limit. So here are 45 best looks of Coachella weekend 1, with nobody wearing high heels and EVERYBODY wearing chokers.

My Own Chella

Two of the things that bum me out; the rest of the world festivalling with itsy bitsy clothes and sandals when I can’t even walk around sockless at home and Urban Outfitters website not working in Quebec. Well when I heard this week that one of the aforementioned two problems is really close to a fix, I figured, why not fix the other one myself? Yes, Urban Outfitters’ Canadian website is, finally, about to go live ladies and gentlemen. No more trying to access the website with mobile networks, no more ordering stuff to your home when you are on vacation somewhere else (please tell me you all do this, that I’m not a final stage shopaholic). I don’t know when it will happen but I know it’s soon. And to celebrate this, I packed my favorite Urban Outfitters dress & hat  and spent some quality photo shooting time at the most beautiful Breather space (I’m seriously considering renting this place all day everyday and turn it into an office, anyone interested in splitting the …

Coachella Vibes

Must be some pretty strong vibes though, I was so jealous that I eventually brought the LA weather to a Montreal that welcomed a wave of snow just last week. I’m not kidding, it was snowing 6 days ago and yesterday was bare legs and sandals weather, which makes Coachella street style all the more appealing right now, knowing I can get instant inspiration from one (or more) of the 100 best looks from the first weekend.

Let The Festivities Begin!

It simply can’t be a coincidence that the first weekend of Coachella, aka the debut of festival season, and the unbelievable SHOPBOP spring sale is happening at the same time. I’m sure the god of music and god of shopping are finger touching above because they don’t want you to wear the same quotidien stuff to festivals, the only place where it’s acceptable to look like you came straight out of a 60’s newspaper clipping. To that end, you can get %25 off of your entire order at SHOPBOP with the code SPRING25 until April 10th 4AM EST, there are some brand exclusions but I can assure you that everything you see in this post will be %25 off. EVERYTHING. Click through to see some major festival style inspiration and shop all those looks.
