coachella fix


Besides the Acne jacket, most of the items in this lil collage are pretty attainable or at least you can interpret using items you already own. I'm sure you have some high tops or colored jean shorts from Forever 21 lying around. And yes we all want that Acne jacket, so why not do a DIY? Go out to Forever 21, buy an oversized jean jacket for about 40 cents, grab your nearest machete and go to town on that thing. 
My message for you Coachella 2012 attendees is to keep it practical. Don't channel your inner hippy dippy princess by wearing a floor length floral button down dress (although that does sound awesome). Go for some cute shorts and a tank top. You don't need to dress like Penny Lane. You're in the middle of a freakin' desert.

Here is a mixtape made up of the bands I would go see if I were going to Coachella. Listen to it, download the songs, burn it onto a CD, and listen to it 50 times on repeat on your drive to the festival. Or not, I'm not really in a place to tell you what to do. 

Oh, and one more thing: whatever you do, DO NOT FORGET DEODORANT

Anyone know where I can get a leather jacket like Dan from the Black Keys wore at their performance? A good friend of mine is in love with it and I'd love to be able to help her out.
Any assistance would be super appreciated. :0)
