Rachel Zoe’s annual Coachella recommendation list came out a couple days ago. I actually wanted to post on this yesterday, but would it surprise you to learn the link wasn’t working? Get it together Team Zoe. Some of her choices are decent and others downright daft. Let’s discuss. I saw these Loeffler Randal sandals on Shopbop and thought to myself, “those look like something Rachel Zoe would recommend for Coachella.” The $175 pair are ugly-cute, but in reality I don’t think these are going to work on most feet. By the way, the worst idea ever is wearing a brand new pair of shoes to a show. For heaven’s sake, break those babies in before you stand outside in a field all day. Comfort is queen at Coachella. Who rushed right out to order this $450 Paul & Joe fringed poncho? I love a good poncho, but this get-up looks hot and impractical for a day in the sun. For evening, perhaps, but this print is truly heinous. Furthermore, no man will find this fug sack attractive. I know some of you are hoping to make a Coachella Chlamydia connection. We discussed the short-shorts at Coachella before and of course Zoe had to go and encourage the trite trend. Look, I understand that you’re dying to wear your perfectly destroyed cut-offs. Feel free, as long as you have no visible cellulite and you keep your cooter covered. No cottage cheese at Coachella. I’m not being anti-fat, but child you know dairy turns in the sun. Really Rachel? These Top Shop boots make no sense for Coachella. Actually, the steel toe might come in handy for negotiating the port-o-potty line. I’m seriously racking my brain for one outfit that might work with these awkward booties. Kevin Murphy created Color Bug for those who want bold, non-committal, one-day color. Rub the color on for an ombré effect à la Abbey Lee. Working a style like this in the confined environment of an editorial makes it look so easy. Try this at Coachella and you’ll be wearing temporary color all over your Paul & Joe fringed tunic.
