We are going to turn this, our favorite festival, upside down.
Corresponding for Lucky, we're going to be staking out the best festival looks, talking to your favorite performers and attending all the best parties.
We've featured quite a few of the Lolla artists on our THC in Your Head mixes and we can't wait to get their take on style.
SO: What are you going to wear?
See you there.
Seven Ensembles that Speak the Haute At THC we like to give it to you straight. And the only way to do that is by giving you basic info you can run with or getting us into your closet so we can detail exactly what's what when it comes to your wardrobe.
That said, here's the cream on the looks you've got to have:
An Event LBD or Killer Tux: Because you absolutely must have this ammunition in your arsenal.
A Knock 'em Out Interview Outfit: Because your resume is only as good as your attitude.
The Office to Cocktails Ensemble: Because work to fun means layering and a subsequent stripping down.
Your Casual Weekend Look: Because looking great and being comfortable is more than possible. We promise.
The Dress Up Date: Because regardless of age, you need to be able to amp up the sex appeal, male or female.
Your Sport Wardrobe: Because well-being necessitates working out, getting fit is better with good gear.
A Sleep Suite: Because there's nothing more haute than nighttime clothes and underthings that turn you on.
And there you have it. So, now what? Go play in your closet!
If you need help pulling these essentials together from what you've got, let us know and we'll answer your questions and/or get you a Haute Closet.
NOTE WELL: The most important part of this equation is the ingredients. Like cooking, if you want the best meal, you've got to use the best ingredients. Every piece - from your LBD to your underthings - should be 1. Unique 2. Elegant and 3. Economical. In translation, that adds up to every piece - from your trench coat to your date skirt - being something you absolutely love, something that looks extraordinary on you and the very best you can afford. All ofthat will add up to a Haute Closet, a perfectly wearable wardrobe.

Spreading the Haute Coast to Coast
We've always been a huge fan of Hejfina. And ShopNastyGal. And Refinery29, a site we fell in love with way back when.
So, when Piera came calling from Refinery29 we were there to do whatever we could to help her out on her adventure in the Windy City. When told to meet at Reckless Records - a spot close to our heart - we fell in love. And when asked to wear a most precious purple vintage YSL jacket, the most charmingly named Yvie, we fell deeply in love.
A huge thank you to Christene and Piera, YSL and Parisienne for inviting us to share the love.
Check out all the fab ladies Yvie met on her tour to search out and spread the message of Parisienne in the great USA (don't miss, she did it drippingly well, darlings) here. And where did we tell Yvie and the ladies to go while in Chicago? Robin Richman, Chalk, and Ikram, of course.
And lastly, as we were particularly excited about meeting Yvie at Reckless Records - there's nothing we love more than a music + fashion fusion - we'll clue you in to our dream affair. Check out Home by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and fall in love. Then come back for more when we press THC in Your Head Vol 7. X
