See and Be Scene: The Siren Festival

Every year I moan and groan about the Siren Festival, and every year I go and have a decent time. The past couple years I've even had a VIP pass, which I must say, if you can get one? Do. They rock. I amused myself between bands (and even during bands) by taking pics of the fashion choices of the hipster specimen. Dresses were big:








But ladies, we really must pay attention to footwear. I think this girl was like 16, so she has time to learn, and grow out of her ugly-rebellion stage, but still:



I'm loving all the cute shorts out there these days, too:





Plaid (and madras) pants and shorts for boys are apparently all the rage; when did this happen?





Yeah, I know: That last one was a little unnecessary.

Uh, and at least among the Misshapes set, manbags are very popular:



I didn't see nearly enough hats. These three pleased me, though:





I was also surprised at the lack of utter disasters. I'm not quite sure if this qualifies; it's so crazy as to be, well, inspired:



Here's a dude in the Les Savy Fav t-shirt I was talking about last week. I'm not so sure I want it anymore:



My pick for best dressed among those I saw? This girl, in casual black dress, print bag (yes!) and little booties (which perhaps looked better in real life)...



and this dude, whose fabulousness might have been due mainly to his exuberant dancing during Celebration's set.

Wait, as long time male reader of the binge ( hi Tamz), I have to honestly say, plaid pants/shorts are a man no-no! (unless they feature high end tailoring and one hell of a drape)

MANacles of doom: You're totes right. They're SUCH a no-no, unless you're a middle-aged Southern golfer. Even then.

Can you feature my new Russian baseball cap?! Cyrillic lettering is the bomb and I want to bring "Russian Casual" to NYC.
