Best of Coachella 2017

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 …

Yeti On My Feet

About three years ago I found a long fur string (which was probably a stole once) at a vintage store in Montreal for just $10, under many many other fabrics and immediately thought I should have it. The friend I was with that day, who wasn’t particularly interested in fashion, looked at me in shock and asked me what the hell I’m going to do with it. “I don’t know, something, someday” I replied, thinking I’d probably hem a skirt or stitch a collar with it and left the store as the cashier thought I was buying it for a Halloween costume and mumbled some jokes. Three years later and that fur not only turned into several pieces of jewelry but also helped me transform my once-cool-now-dull Zara black slides into furry sandals, and I still have more fur left.

Rope Off, Rope On

Usually it would have been just me hanging on to summer, never letting it go, refusing its end and freezing my ass off in the process but this year it’s the whole continent that’s fighting with me as I’m trying to let it go and move on to fall clothes. I know I’m going to miss it like crazy once it’s gone, but humankind is greedy. I don’t like dressing up in summer any more than I like dressing up in winter so I’m always trying to find new ways to layer my clothes, even using ones I already forgot in the depths of my wardrobe, like this decades old H&M dress. And it’s OK that it’s really fancy because the rope sandals are sailor cool. . Ivory wrap dress H&M (similar here & here) . Black tapered pants Zara (similar here & here) .

Push The Buttons

First of all; I’m sorry mom for the wrinkled dress but this is linen and I’m not going to iron something when I know it will get ruined again in 2 mins. Second of all; this is the first time in recorded history that I wore a puffy shoulder dress. In fact I refused to buy this dress the first time I saw it; I gasped out of love at first but then I saw the shoulders and let it go. I’m usually very much open to trying new styles as long as my figure allows it but for some reason I have this serious problem with shoulders, I just can’t wear anything that has a shoulder line below or above my actual shoulders so that means no shoulder pads, no vintage sizing and definitely no puffy sleeves. But after insanely searching for a dress like this sans the shoulders and failing miserably, I took the leap and got it. I think it’s looking alright! .

Cluse Me In

Three things I learned this weekend: 1) You can easily turn any bat sleeve kimono or cardigan into a wrap skirt and it feels more comfortable and laid back then any other skirt can ever be, 2) Apparently the little girl inside of me isn’t dead at all and I still enjoy wearing pink shoes, more than I’m proud to admit, 3) I’m OK with wearing watches with any kind of outfit as long as they’re chic and light like jewelry. For a long time the only “thing” occupying my right wrist has been my faithful elastic hair tie so I started to sense my left wrist is feeling left out – my left hand and arm being useless compared to the other one already – it begged me to adorn it with something nice and just as useful. OK nothing can be as useful as an elastic hair tie but this one is close, or should I say CLUSE (ba dum tss). Works like a watch, feels like a slender bracelet: right wrist, the …
