Three days at All Points West, I was assisting photographer Craig Arend for’s street coverage on the festival, I’m beat!! I’m real beat!!

In three days the New York weather made some really horrifying spins!! from hot and humid to crazy rain and storms within a hour, really messed up. It was three days of mud and Sunday’s smell was epic!

so outfits were heat, rain and mud-survival based, I was wearing my Frye boots but it seriously looked like they weren’t going to survive the mud and no way I wanted to take that smell home!, changed to my 15 dollar Urban Outfitters sneakers that I happily tossed out on my way home, drenched and mudded-out. With what I know now, the perfect outfit would have been, slip dress, wellingtons and a sloughy sweater,

    Great pics!
    Wellingtons zijn inderdaad echt een must, zeker met de modder!
    Ben echt benieuwd naar de foto’s, heb je zelf ook foto’s gemaakt?

    Oh my, I;m glad I read this. In two weeks, their is an outdoor Blink 182 concert. It’s either going to be ridiculously hot or drenching rain.

    Although most people despise the rain during outdoor concerts, I love it! It sort of gives the festival a more authentic feel (for me anyway). Plus, I love splashing around in the mud with my Hunter wellies!
    All those pictures are amazing–the black and white really makes a difference!
