Desert Party - Coachella 2014

Day One // We have arrived. Palm Springs, you win. Ellie Goulding, Martin Garrix and Hot Since 82 (pictured above with Sara) are on the lineup, let's dance!

Day Two // Starting the day off at the Sonos House Party for a little private Diplo show was a great idea, followed by arriving to the festival during Kid Cudi's performance of "Pursuit of Happiness." Later, danced the night away with Jamie Chung at Fatboy Slim in a sandstorm; so Coachella.

Day Three // Popped over to the Lacoste party to see my gal Profesh Style, only leaving so pumped for Lana Del Ray, Disclosure and ended the night with a little #QuackChella (per Duck Sauce).

Bye, Coachella! Thanks for a great time and amazing memories. xx

Oh, did you want more pictures of the Ferris Wheel? Because we have them...

Flat & Strappy

Halogen Tee, Vintage Levis Denim Jacket, American Eagle Shorts c/o, Sole Society 'Haven' Sandals c/o, Hat & Purse Borrowed, Free People Bracelets c/o, RayBan Sunglasses

Our favorites over at Sole Society have us fully equipped with shoes for Coachella. Since we can't prance around in heels, a cute, strappy sandal is the next best thing. Erika picked a great neutral pair that will work well with everything, saving room in her suitcase for more important things like flower crowns and such. The 'Haven' sandal is one that's just as easily paired with a printed dress as they are with denim cut-offs and a tee. I can't believe we're going to be there in two days! Are you guys following us on Instagram yet (@TheFashionablyBroke)? Be sure to do so, so that you come with us on our adventures. We can't wait!

Blogging has led me to some of the coolest, most creative people I know. Shell B is one of them. I'm so excited to finally share the final product from her style project, pictures from the DC Bloggers x #StyledByShellBCheri photo shoot. It's her specialty to help women with that trouble item, we all have 'em, and help them create a new, fresh look using only what she has in her closet.

It started when Shell B came over to help me style a trouble piece in my closet. I just had to take advantage of her while she was over, of course, so I slyly pulled a few more than one piece for her to help me style. We ended up making a huge mess and having a ton of fun. We came up with two outfits and decided that I would surprise Shell B with my choice the morning of the photo shoot. I showed up in my overalls that morning for two reasons; 1. This was one of those moments where you just feel Sarah Jessica Parker Good (because that's a thing), and 2. Because I felt this outfit was a perfect example of how talented Shell B truly is. True statement: I actually think she picked thee perfect pieces I had to style these overalls; This studded blouse (which I also hardly wore and now am re-obsessed with) and white, wedge pumps.

Shell B is taking over Nashville next, (because she's that cool). I know she is going to produce AMAZING things. She already gave me a glimpse in to what she has in mind and I can tell you that you want to be sure to follow along her journey. In the meantime, search for the hashtag #StyledByShellBCheri to check out the rest of the DC Blogger looks that she styled.

Thanks again to Shell B, for letting me take part in your vision!
