This time of year there are many music festivals to attend from Bumbershoot to Burning Man. And although I don't have tickets to any of those, I am a big fan of music and festival fashion. That's why I was particularly interested in this band called The 1975. Most likely, you haven't heard of this English indie rock band, but there are certainly a few songs that you should definitely listen to that will get you in that music festival mood.

The 1975 is a band that loves the "classic good looking guy" look of black, white and leather jackets. Think James Dean! So I thought I'd put together a couple James Dean/The 1975-esque looks (for guys and dolls) from some great pieces from Boohoo.com. The first set is a look for the guys based on the style and musical interest of The 1975. Below that is a similar look that I'd wear. All pieces can be found at Boohoo for $50 or less!

Festival or not, you'll want to get your hands on these classic pieces from the sunglasses to the backpack. It's a mock croc tassel backpack that also comes in red--the it color of the fall for bags. And how cool is that shirt dress?

And the reason this post is titled "Like Music for Chocolate" is because The 1975 has a lot of great songs, but one of my favorites is called Chocolate so I recommend you give it a listen. Robbers is also a sweet treat for your ears!

And if you want to play a fun game, take a minute to take this quiz to find out which festival you are--I'm SXSW. Oh, if you live in the Bay Area, The 1975 will be at The Masonic in San Francisco on Nov. 18--just my luck!

Disclosure: I was compensated for the time taken to write a post on this topic by Boohoo.com, but all opinions are my own.

I don't know what it is, but I've really been into sunglasses the last couple of months. Do you like the ones I'm wearing here? They are called Althea from GlassesShop.com and they're round and mirrored. I didn't really think I was into mirrored sunglasses until I put on the right pair. The full frames are great, but my favorite part are the unique gold accents. They look just like a pair that Cara Delevingne owns, which doesn't really mean anything to me, but in case you thought they looked familiar. I feel like I'm sitting beach side in the 1980s--and that's a good thing. Trust. Find styles like this and other cool sunnies (like these Concords at a great discount, for example) at GlassesShop.

Man, I've never owned so much white in my life! I just wanted to K.I.S.S. (keep it simple, stupid--journalism phrase) with my look because I was spending the day in the city running some errands for an upcoming trip. In the middle of it all, I stopped at a diner in the city for some cinnamon French toast. You might have seen it here. I used to be really into French toast, but I can't seem to eat more than two slices these days. But enough about the food I eat.

A couple weekends ago I saw Guardians of the Galaxy with the hubs. He wanted to see it from the moment he saw the first trailer. I love comic book movies, so I was down, even though I didn't think it was going to be awesome. Well, I did quite enjoy it and thought it was a good mixture of fun and sport. To me, there are other Marvel movies that are better, but this is still worth the watch. The soundtrack is boss (yes to "Cherry Bomb" by The Runaways!).

If you're not familiar with the comic, Guardians is about a group of misfits who come together to defend the galaxy from an evil-doer named Ronan the Accuser. The group is made up of Peter Quill/Star Lord (Chris Pratt)--a thief; Gamora (Zoe Saldana)--a bad guy turned good guy; Drax (Dave Bautista)--a guy looking for revenge; Rocket (Bradley Cooper)--a miscreant who loves explosives; and Groot (Vin Diesel)--a walking tree with limited vocabulary, super strength and a heart of gold.

The story line isn't anything unique, but it does tie this film to the other Marvel movies. What makes Guardians so enjoyable is that the action scenes are done well and it has a lot of funny moments too. But I wouldn't call it amazing. Although Bradley Cooper's "Rocket" character is pretty worth it. He is definitely the glue. And kudos to Chris Pratt as well--he's been eating his spinach! My main gripe is that I think they could have done a better job delving into the back stories for the characters. They don't tell you anything deep or too specific about the main group or the villains, so there's  a part of you that doesn't care as much as you should. But I'm about 100% certain there'll be a sequel. So we'll just have to wait and see.
