I will admit: I was totally peer-pressured into going. The idea of Coachella pretty much represents a bunch of things I hate, including dangerously sweaty and rowdy crowds, tons of waiting in lines (security, bathrooms, food), hippies to the max, strange indie music, bazillion degree weather (although this year happened to be deathly freezing instead), and, my arch nemisis: PORTA-POTTIES. But, despite all of that, I had a faaaabulous time. I saw tons of super-stylish people, heard the most amazing music, and took tons of pictures (a major victory for a blogger such as myself). Moral of the story: If any of the above things scare or digust you, that doesn't necessarily mean that Coachella isn't for you. Although I must say, if I ever have the chance to go back, I will definitely try to hit up the VIP section, which is totally worth the money (no porta-potties and way fewer crowds--> I dig).
Now for the actual music: I spent the majority of my time in the Sahara tent, which is where most of the DJs play, making it a giant all-day rave. My favorite DJs were Avicii (who also happens to be a gorgeous human being), Kaskade, Afrojack and Calvin Harris. Some other faves of mine, not in the electronic genre, were Dragonette and Frank Ocean, both of which were amazing live.
And now for my fashion... You will see that I broke out of my typical style, posing as a somewhat indie kid for a few days. And I must say, it was pretty fun.
Here I am wearing a Brandy and Melville crop top, black American Apparel bandeau with silver stars, Levi's high-waisted shorts (seriously, who am I?), gray Converse, Raybans, my gold handcuff necklace, and a beige metallic LeSportSac backpack:
My fabulously fashionale friends and I at sunset. Golden hour + Coachella fashion= the best.
That's all for now, but stay tuned. Oh, and don't even read any other Coachella articles (besides Betches Love This which is super raunchy but entertaining)...but all the rest are super lame; it seems almost as if the media was completely absent from Coachella this year...
