guest credentials, bffs, jello shots, a few two many drinks, and some awesome dance moves.
i don’t know how to top it. crap.

and btw…i’m back
short and sweet:
aldo metal ankle cuff flats (which i can’t seem to find online)
see? told ya it was short and sweet.
JETS by JEssika Allen White Label (never heard of this label, but damn it’s legit)
Herve Leger + neon. whats not to love?
Mara Hoffman aka “Queen of Coachella”
Agent Provocateur (more lingerie shops need to be doing swimwear!)
Missoni NOT for Target
granted none of these are very wallet friendly, but can’t hate the player. hate the game!
follow me on instagram (@coachellalife) and you may have seen something tubular yesterday
neon neoprene awesomeness.
body glove neon wetsuit jacket found at a local thrift store for $3.50. yes, you read that right. three freakin dollars and fifty cents.
one problem, i couldn’t fit my (apparently very fat) hands through
otherwise the jacket was perfect. cropped, tight, and neon neoprene. what more could a girl ask for? i just needed to get my hands through!
so out came the scissors and just a few snips, and phew, my surfer dreams are now a reality.
gotta love hidden blue surprises
are you dying over those elbow guards yet? i am.
paired with my new neon Z. Hovak tank, you can see how the jacket is slightly cropped.
i am in neoprene heaven. legit.
being that it was 80 degrees today, i almost cut the sleeves completely off to make a wetsuit vest for coachella, but i’m going to hold off for now. those elbow guards and i are dating.
surf’s up brah.
the melrose trading post. aka fairfax flea market. aka coachella wardrobe gold mine.
not sure what look to go for (pocahontas goes to burning man, hipster, rocker groupie chic, neon indian, etc) and not sure what to get for coachella? good news, just look at the gals wandering around the trading post and i guarantee you’ll find new coachella fashion inspiration.
then you just shop. and bargain. and shop. and maybe grab a few things for your home. and bargain. and shop some more. and then you go and drink and celebrate how much money you did not spend.
seriously. spend some time here on a sunday and you can knock out 90% of your coachella wardrobe. for about 90% less than what you’d pay for retail “vintage” (ugh don’t get me started…)
here are some items i deemed coachella worthy enough to either buy or take a crappy iphone photo of.
(my apologies for not getting every shop’s name for this post…please let me know and i will be sure to update!)
Z. Hovak tanks $20
Z is one talented (and super nice!) girl, i scooped up one of these tanks a few summers ago and get more complements than i can count. i snagged a new one of these neon tanks. check her site and etsy shop!
going for a boho look? these flower headpieces from gardenhead are perfection.
handmade dresses from melrosespace10. she also has a huge vintage collection that has some amazing items no matter what your style.
looking to add to my “old lady collection”, i scored this sequin dress from her and i am obsessed. coachella couture anyone?
shit kickers from vintage redeux
and now begins where i don’t have shop names…sorry!
for all you scared, lazy, or non-DIYers…(hey it happens)….problem solved
fryes with the perfect amount of color, heel, wear and tear
handchains (upper) and cuffs with leather tassels
sadly i didn’t buy this sequined blazer for $50…and now i’m kicking myself
this pic doesn’t do this blanket/poncho/vest justice. pure awesomeness.
so. where will you be next sunday?
random things i’ve found and like for coachella:
