Coachella 2015 | Weekend 1 | Day 1

Greetings from Indio CA! The days were hot at Coachella, and so was the fashion! 

For day one, I definitely wanted a chic easy festival look in a darker tone. Wanted to keep the overall aesthetic simple. Bohemian but with street sophistication so I opted for a darker summer look! 

This gorgeous Indah brand dress from Revolve Clothing, was the perfect crochet maxi.  (found out hip hop royalty, Angela Simmons has the same one in white! totally love her style!)  I specifically wanted something full length but still edgy and slightly risque. Wore boy short bottoms to accentuate the cutouts. I was very  selective about finding a black crochet maxi because I wanted a unique crochet pattern that also flatters the figure. 

Festival fashion is usually flowy and light but I thought a form fitting clean lines gives it a modern approach. The full length still gives a whimsical festival aesthetic!

Wanted to style this look like a dark goddess. I opted for dainty simple gold jewelry. Got this great ring connector bracelet, arrow head chain, and geometric V necklace from forever 21. Also threw on some metallic flash tats for some arm candy! Paired this cool honey comb band with simple solid stripes. The honey combs helped me channel my inner Queen Bey (She actually wore the same one here! ) Love black and gold!  

Finished this look off with black flat leather booties and dark square framed sunglasses, to keep the look forward and give it a bit of edge. Comfy, simple, and festival fashion forward.
