there's no way this weekend could be summed up in one post... but i'm going to try anyways.
pitchfork 2010 was amazing! despite the near-100-degree weather in union park, chicago, thousands of music-lovers ventured out to see bands like broken social scene, major lazer, lcd soundsystem, wolf parade, neon indian, and about 40 other crowd-pleasers.
one advantage of the extreme temperature was seeing how the hip pitchfork crowd dressed to beat the heat. one of my favorite outfits was tiny blue tap shorts, a loose pale pink tank (tucked in & layered over a white lace bandeau), tan ankle-tie flats, and cream ray-ban clubmaster shades (i literally saw at least 100 ray-bans this weekend). it was soo american apparel/vintage 90s/understated glam.
as for me and liz, i opted for a white t-shirt dress from h&m, thick brown braided belt, a wrist-full of bangles, flat sandals, and my new black ray-ban cats 5000 shades. liz wore an army-green tank dress from forever 21 with this lavender crystal headband from anthropologie and her usual piled-on jewelry.
i also saw a lot of girls wearing high-waisted shorts with bikini tops and toms shoes... comfy and cool! i wish i'd gotten some pictures of the outfits i saw, but i was entirely focused on the shows - with that said, my camera isn't the best, but i got some decent shots:

now all i have to look forward to is lollapalooza 2010! it's august 6-8 in grant park and will be like an intense version of pitchfork (over 100 bands, massive stages 1 mile apart..) i'm already preparing for it -- and deciding what i'm going to wear.
style (and listen) on
