Fringe dresses, tassels, bohemian shirts and tribal prints mean one thing — Coachella. Who’s ready? I have to admit, the super-easy-boho-chic LA free-spirited girl style wasn’t something I could ever picture myself wearing. Early this week, I spotted several pieces from various collections that caught my eye — for example, this ETRO embellished silk scarf is just so major and this Valentino navy fringe dress left me speechless. As I understand, Coachella, like every other festival, is all about easy-going vibes and fun clothing. But I’m all about recycling my closet, so I’ve chosen pieces to rock during Coachella and after. The IRO printed shorts paired with a white oversized shirt or a strappy black top with a crossbody bag will work perfectly on a sunny sunday in Manhattan. Realistically, every girl needs a good pair of sandals — and Valentino’s Spring ’14 collection offers the right amount of cool and chic (check out my pick). All of these pieces can be incorporated into your closet and will be easy to adjust to anything you already own, I promise!

Here’s an edit of 6 perfectly acceptable splurges for any woman —because you’ve been a very good girl this year. And you deserve it. I’ve taken the liberty to list some reasons why it is so ok to spoil yourself or to let yourself be spoiled… You choose.
One, you’re a a student, wife, worker, mother, or all of the previously listed. If you are one of them, you deserve a bag. If you’re all of them, you my dear, deserve the whole pie.
Two, always invest your money in pieces that will last you a lifetime. Keep in mind, splurging isn’t really splurging when you’re going for timeless items.
Three, you can never have too much black. As a matter of fact, you will never have enough black. Black, black, and black.
Four, getting down to statistics and whatnot, the value of a classic increases by season.
Five, four out of the six options can be worn from day-to-night. They’re just that kind of cool.
Six, insert your own reason to why you mutherfucking deserve it.
