Close Up Summer Solstice 2013

Let me tell you all about my first music festival experience at the Close Up Summer Solstice 2013.

Couldn't have spent it with anyone else than with these two pretty young ladies.
A quick photo op at the entrance
Yael Yuzon of Sponge Cola tried his hardest to reach out to fans (e.g. me, Tricia and Ingrid) and rocked the house at the same time.
The stage by day...
...and the stage by night.
Lights out, DEV comes in. 
Cobra Starship minus Gabe Saporta. Either way they made every good girl go bad. (see what i did there) 

Actually, these are not the only performers at the event. Close Up Summer Solstice is the first ever 12-hr party to be held in Manila, starting from 4pm to 4am, but being the good minor that I am, 12am is the curfew I have to follow. I missed the acts that came after midnight such as Alex Gaudino, Cedric Gervais, Apster and AFROJACK!!! *cue tears* But with the success of the event, I reckon this Coachella-inspired music festival will be done yearly. I am gonna go all out next year for sure! 

Now on to my outfit...

Top from H&M | Shorts from Bubbles | Boots from Aldo | Vintage bag

The night before the event, I have been on the lookout for a 12-hr party-proof yet summer chic ensemble and thanks to Coachella instagram, I was able to achieve it. 

The body pain and sore feet that came in the morning after was hella worth it. The acts were extremely amazing and the music was perfection to my ears. I wouldn't have it any other way (just kidding, a later curfew would have been nice) Lol.

Still Into You

Top from Androgyne Manila | Shorts from thrift shop | Bag from Louis Vuitton | Vintage boots and sunnies | Hat from Ilocos | Watch from Casio

I think this is the first I have actually utilized a number of accessories in one outfit. I'm not really fond of cuffs and bangles, you know how laidback I can be. Aside from turning frilly, I have finally mastered the denim-on-denim trend which I have been eye-ing to do since which made me realize it was easy to accessorize a denim ensemble. Those sporty shorts I found at a local thrift shop is about to worn out because I keep wearing them on a weekly basis. My bag is my latest summer haul which came all the way from Japan thanks to my mom's friend. Nothing has changed guys, I'm still a prisoner at my own home on a 2-month summer vacation. *sigh* 

Being the music enthusiast that I am, you know that it's a habit that I share a new song with you guys right? Well my favorite punk band (now trio) is back so I am jumping for joy for their new single.
