I’ve been in Palm Springs for exactly five hours, and I have already seen enough suede booties paired with teeny denim cutoffs and flowy tank tops to last me a lifetime. Ew. And it’s not just the “desert sandstorm chic” uniform, it’s the attitude.
When we checked in this afternoon, the lobby of the Hyatt Regency was completely overrun with swarms of identically dressed Coachella-bots, all desperately trying to out-cool each other by screaming “YOLO!” and trying to stuff as many flowers as they possibly could into their artfully disheveled braids.
It’s really uncharacteristic of me to dislike a music and fashion event such as this…but I have to make a huge exception here. It’s totally awful.
I’m really really hoping that they all leave tomorrow.
I had no idea that our Palm Springs vacation was going to intersect with Coachella, or I never would have booked a stay on these dates. It just never crossed my mind. But…lesson learned. I think in the future I’m going to call the hotel directly to ask if there is anything “big” going on for the dates I’ve booked.
Have you ever accidentally stumbled into an event at a hotel or on your vacation? Was it a good thing or a bad experience?
