While the music is obviously the main draw to the festival and the reason for most of the fun fun fun, my focus is of course on the fashion fashion fashion.  Fun Fun Fun Fest has quickly become one of my favorite, possibly my most favorite, music festival to photograph.  Because the festival brings in a various group of musical acts, and many that are not on the mainstream radar, the street style at Fun Fun Fun is an eclectic mix.  Of course though, there are always trends that stand out, and this year that would include: knee high socks, 90's grunge style plaids, statement making profanity, and punk accessories. There's always a really fun sense of stylish customization at this fest that can most obviously be found on denim and leather jackets in the form of pins and buttons.  It's a look that's very reminiscent of early 80s punk rock fashion.  One of my favorite finds at the fest was a guy wearing his own FFF button which he customized with a fancy frame, while his best friend donned a pin bearing the face of none other than Karl Lagerfeld.

When I found out I had been denied a photo pass to ACL, I was only mildly bummed.  Actually to be quite honest, I didn't care at all. My friends and I skipped out on the first weekend of ACL entirely and drove out west to Marfa instead.  I even purchased an instant camera before the trip (yes I took a polaroid camera to Marfa, call me a hipster all you want), and the trip was beautiful and full of border control and toothless adventures.  I told myself I would only attend the second weekend of ACL if a ticket fell into my lap. Well, one did (I sorta knew it would because it's actually normally a lot more difficult to NOT attend ACL than it is to attend it). However, the great flood of 2013 kept me from attending more than only one day of the music festival, so I was only able to snap style photos of one day.  After witnessing the YOLO t-shirts, the guys dressed up in twin 70s tuxedos, and the amount of girls who scarily looked like they might be influenced too much by Miley Cyrus, I still stand by my historically proven theory that ACL is the worst music festival for fashion.  I tried to focus on the good, relying on my street style eye to find the hidden gems, but even the good has left me yawning.  Basically, I think I might start ripping flower crowns off girls' heads at music festivals and create a mulch company called "I'm Over It." What do y'all think about the fashion at ACL? Continued
