Seven Must-Pack Coachella Essentials from West 3rd Street
We’re officially kissing the rain goodbye and welcoming the start of summer – and the start of festival season – with Coachella 2016! The tickets are booked, the AirBnB is set and you’ve got a car full of friends ready to head to the desert.
But before you hit the Coachella grounds running, make sure you’ve got these seven essentials that will keep you looking and feeling good all weekend long! The best part? You can only find these items on West 3rd Street! Happy festival shopping!
1. STACKED BRACELETS FROM M. COHEN
LA-based jewelry designer Maor Cohen created his “Coachella Exclusive Duo Stacks” especially for this year’s festival. The stacks feature two of M. Cohen’s classic styles in special color combinations that symbolize the bright spirit and youthful exuberance of the Coachella festival. We love this bracelet duo, thoughtfully prepared in electric yellow with summer white, specially priced at $200 per pair and available for a limited time at M. Cohen Designs – 8362 West 3rd Street.
2. PERFECTING SHIELD SPF FROM MURAD
Murad’s “Invisiblur Perfecting Shield” Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is the ultimate Coachella must-have. With the beautiful, blazing dessert as the backdrop, Coachella is literally the hottest stop on the music festival circuit. Invisiblur Perfecting Shield is more than just 100% invisible sun protection; it gives your skin a flawless, matte finish that’s great for a natural look or a perfect canvas for super-stable makeup application that can hold up to the dust and heat of the desert. Take home a bottle for $65 at Murad – 8207 West 3rd Street.
3. CONVERTIBLE KIMONO FROM MOM’S THE WORD
Ditch the cardigan and get into a kimono this season. There are so many ways to style this piece, we can’t even count! Drape it over your shoulders for a fashion-forward look, loop it around your neck for an oversized scarf, or knot the corners and throw it over your head for a cardigan. Made from a super soft 100% viscose, it’s the perfect layering piece for those chilly Coachella nights. One size fits all. The best part? This convertible kimono is only $50! Available at Mom’s the Word – 7952 West 3rd Street.
