Less has never been better especially when dancing under the hot desert sun.  For those headed to Coachella this weekend be prepared for scorching hot days, and cool windy nights. You'll definitely want to pack a light jacket, and keep your shades around for the evening.  Your sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sandstorms that hit at night.  Last, but not least, don't forget your SPF.  Regardless of that perfect outfit, a bad sunburn is not a good look. 

There's still plenty of time to enter to win this gorgeous Eric Javits Carroll handbag (retail $325).  It was featured in my last blog post Coachella: Free Spirit & A Giveaway.  Details on how to enter are below--you have until Friday, May 2, 2014 at 3 pm PST to enter. Winner will be randomly drawn. Good luck!

It's the opening weekend of Coachella--one of the biggest music festivals in the U.S.A.  The festival is about the fashion as much as it is about the music.  I was asked by Pose.com to take over their instagram account (@poseapp) for Coachella fashion, and to promote their exciting new platform Pose Marketplace (stay tuned).  Details, and photos of my Coachella inspired outfits will be posted in three parts on my blog within the next week.  My first outfit is vintage mixed with modern pieces.  This gorgeous silk embroidered vintage top was paired with 501 Levi's Limited Editions (#8 out of 100). I love the pop of coral color from the silk flowers, and handbag.  

  Want to step-up your handbag game this spring/summer?  I'm giving one lucky winner this pretty little handbag by one of my favorite designers, Eric Javits (Retail $325).  It's simple to enter-- just see the rules below.  You have until Friday, May 2, 2014 at 3 pm PST to enter. Winner will be randomly drawn. Good luck!

Just the basics is what I gravitate towards on those busy days.  You simply can't go wrong with a classic white t-shirt and Levi's jeans.  My DVF bag is the perfect accessory to compliment this effortless look.  The hardware on the bag isn't over the top yet adds just the right touch.  It's also roomy enough for my ipad, moleskin, and daily accoutrements.  Basically, a charming handbag or scarf is all you need to transform plain to fresh.

Coachella is about the fashion as much as it is the music.  I love the "anything goes" spirit of the festival.  You can be as free and expressive as you'd like--so have fun!

I went to Coachella for the first time last weekend and had such a great time.  I went up with one of my best friends, Taraji P. Henson for the day to see the Wu Tang Clan perform.  I've been a big fan of Wu Tang for so long and it was an even bigger bonus to find out how nice they are.  We were able to watch the entire performance from the stage so I was able to capture some amazing pictures of the crowd, and their energy. Wu Tang's performance was backed by a full orchestra--and they killed it.   If you're headed out to Coachella this weekend--have a fantastic time!


*Tip: It's scorching hot during the day and chilly in the evening.  I'd bring a jacket and sunglasses for the evening since it can get pretty windy.  We got caught in a sandstorm so be prepared for that too.
