Benicassim, Spain 2010...The sunshine festival!!

Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to be in Spain and attend the Benicassim festival 2010.

Benicassim festival (a.k.a FIB) is an amazing week-long camping experience. With art displays short film exhibitions, dance performances and not forgetting the four-day music festival (line up including Kasabian, the Prodigy, Mumford and sons and rising star Ellie Goulding plus many more)that ends an amazing week of culture, fashion and perfect spanish weather.
Sun-drenched days spent on the sands, beach front dance displays and short film exhibitions at night. With the music starting at 6pm and carrying on until 6am (to avoid the spanish 35 degree heat!). A perfect opportunity to get 'snap-happy' and trend-spot.

As the four-day music festival began the fashionistas were out in force. The outfits ranged from practical, cool and as small as possible to high-fashion leather.

Not forgetting an appearance from H&M in a pop-up store...mixing fashion with an important message 'FASHION AGAINST AIDS'.

Below- effortless, laid-back cool and LOVE the necklace (want!)

Mini-celeb-spot 1= Lauren McAvoy- Britain's next top model winner (cycle 3). Her make-up was 'perfection' which is amazing considering the sweltering spanish heat.

Min-celeb-spot 2= Ellie Goulding at Valencia Airport on return journey. I may have told her I loved her a little too enthusiastically...

The week was truly as i left my tent behind in tatters, a leopard-print condom in my hand-luggage(courtesy of H&M), embellished gladiators hanging by a thread onto my dirty feet and amazing memories to last me the rest of the summer I know I will definitely return next year to the oh-so-fashionable 'sunshine festival'! xoxo

I'm wearing....

I'm wearing tasseled waistcoat H&M, tank top and rolled up shorts TOPSHOP, studded bag PRIMARK and brand new (yet importantly worn-looking) military work-boots TREDS
Can't wait to wear these with patterned tights, thick scrunched socks and cute dresses in Autumn. May replace the laces with...well...lace laces xoxo
