Get ready to walk the ACL-runway

As most austenites know by now, this weekend is ACL. We’ve pretty much memorized all our favorite bands’ lyrics into our heads that we can by now; and, we’ve also planned out, to the minute, how we are going to try to be at two stages at once. ACL, here we come. We’re set.

There’s just one little detail we’ve missed… WHAT TO WEAR!

I can’t believe we forgot that one. How could we?

Not to worry. If Austin is good for one thing, it’s finding something to wear last minute. With all the boutiques up and down SOCO and 2nd street district, we’re sure to find something for the ever-famous ACL-runway.

Here is a list of some of my favorite boutiques, where you’re sure to create three looks that will make this weekend that much better.

Gallery D

Located at 436 W. 2nd Street

Here you can find Jacknboots vintage collection, cutoffs, tees, skirts, dresses and handbags that are sure to get you in the mood to see Florence and The Machine.

Stop by Solid Gold

Located at 1601 E 5th #102

In case it’s a little chilly this weekend, which it might be considering how the weather’s been the past few weeks, you can get your maxi skirt or dress fix in here. Or you can pair this dress and sweater with tights that you can easily put on or take off, just in case.

To top off your outfit and pull it together, don’t forget to go to Touch Of Sass

Located at 500 North Lamar #104

You will find any accessory you need here. Whether you want to pair that burnt orange sweater from Solid Gold with any of these UT color handbags or add a horn necklace to your crop top, your look will be sure to make anyone envious.

If you are the type who would rather do your shopping online, go to Electric Frenchie.

Austin-based, it is an online collection filled with boho chic/indie vintage looks. Be sure to stop by this site tonight to check out their DIY accessory that will fit perfectly with any ACL outfit. They are giving a step-by-step tutorial on how to make this celeb-inspired wrap cuff.

Now that you’ve got the clothing situation figured out, all you have to do now is figure out how to try all the different foods they have this year without stuffing yourself into a food coma…
