This Week's Scoop of Mochi Minis
Other than al fresco meals and iced coffees, warmer weather means music festival season is underway. We kick off this season with Coachella, one of the most highly anticipated jam fests of the year. The 2013 lineup includes the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the xx, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Modest Mouse, among others. But it isn't only the music we're interested in; Coachella is also the biggest fashion gathering of the year with the exception of fashion week. Neon shorts and pants, florals, chambray shirts, jean jackets, Ray Ban sunglasses, what new fashion trends will we see this year? Chriselle Lim, one of our favorite bloggers, recently teamed up with Juicy Couture and Who What Wear to be the official festival style ambassador at Coachella. So if you're not one of the lucky few headed to Indio, you can follow Chriselle's festival fashion adventures on the Who What Wear Coachella coverage page. Need some career inspiration?
