Tag: what to wear acl

You’ve spent all weekend hot gluing your Hobby Lobby flowers together to make the perfect floral crown, and you have an amount of flash tattoos stockpiled that would put a 1950’s fallout shelter to shame. If music festivals were nuclear attacks, then ACL is a basic bitch’s Hiroshima. I’ve been covering the fashion at Austin’s music… Continued
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in my #StylishatACL GIVEAWAY courtesy of AT&T U-Verse GigaPower! It was truthfully very exciting and fun to do this type of interactive giveaway and see everyone's responses. I had so much fun this weekend and it was in big part thanks to y'all who follow and support this blog! Scroll down to the end of my recap and photos to find out if you are the WINNER of 2 tickets to the next weekend of ACL!... Continued
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
The rain came and went (leaving behind some lovely smelling dillo mud), but the music didn't stop at the Austin City Limits festival this past weekend.  The casually cool vibe of Austin fashion is always more apparent when live music is involved, and ACL is no exception.  Trends that stood out this year included homemade floral headbands, heart shaped sunglasses, pretty parasols, and the comeback of 90's classics like combat boots and overalls.
