Over the last few months, our San Diego consignment store experienced an influx of arguably questionable items. Desperate for cash with which to purchase music festival tickets, festival-bound groupies are pleading to pawn off their furry platform boots, neon fishnets, bedazzled bras and booty shorts into our stores and onto our customers. These consignment racks, however, are exclusively A-list; when a My Sister’s Closet shopper dresses to get down at a music festival, you better believe she’s doing it in style.
If you’ve always had a thing for Care Bears, there’s nothing sexier than your standard, cliché music festival outfit (think fake fur and rainbows everywhere). If you’re cruising the Phoenix and San Diego consignment scene for tasteful music festival fashions, however, check out these must-haves, available at My Sister’s Closet. Ditch the panda hat and opt for something more refined. (Yeah, yeah, we know it’s a music festival, but if you want to land the drummer you’re going to want to look hot, hot, hot.)
1. Tribal prints: embrace your wild side in geometric tribal prints in black and white or bold color combinations. However, we insist you learn from Victoria’s Secret’s insensitive faux pas – leave your Native American-style headdress at home.
2. Denim: nothing is more classically sexy than an all-American denim jean, like model Agyness Deyn rocked at the House of Holland pool party launching their Coachella 2013 line. Embrace the staple in jeans or push the envelope with a denim crop top.
Big floppy hat – protect your skin and look chic in a 70’s sunhat. Put out a carefree vibe and pair it with a prairie print mini dress and combat boots, like model Audrina Patridge wore to Coachella.
