There’s music festival after music festival but we’re certainly not complaining. Last week, we delighted in the music of Warpaint and Mogwai at the Feb Fest 2014 and this coming Saturday, we’re hitting the road to Clark Field, Pampanga for the two-day 7107 International Music Festival. That being said, it’s time to get our festival-appropriate outfits ready—not that there are strict rules.
Today, we’re starting with our bag. Experience has taught us that on events like this, our bag choice is inversely proportional to the level of fun: The smaller it is the more fun you have. That is why we’re letting our totes and handbags rest for the weekend as music festivals call for sling bags—from mini satchels and messenger bags to cross over and body bags—to enjoy unencumbered hands. And if you’re anything like us (read: fashion-obsessed), we never compromise on style. So here we prove that must-have items come in small packages.
