As it happens, online shopping may be a more EFFICIENT way of shopping, but it certainly leads to more debacles.
Case in point, my BROWN LATEX DRESS purchase.
And now, my burgundy mandala kimono purchase.
It arrived in the mail, after being sent all the way from China, I suspect.
I intended for it to be the feature item in this outfit for the burn:
However upon inspection, it was less BURGUNDY and more ORANGE.
And not like a sunset orange, more like a MECONIUM orange.
For those of you who don’t know, meconium is the substance that comes out of a baby when it takes its first poop. When this happens in utero, it stains the baby orange.
So now I have a meconium orange stained mandala kimono to wear to the burn.
So I scrambled online (again).
Because I NEVER learn my lesson.
I used ShopStyle, a sort of warehouse for mainstream online fashion shopping, and found two kimonos which I felt would replace the orange one quite nicely.
Much better, no?
But I’ll tell you this:
I had to sort through a lot of yucky and boring looking kimonos in order to find what I was looking for.
And (lucky for me) I also found a nice pink kimono/robe to go with my Pink Burner Bunny outfit.
Because it might get cold in Sacramento for the Pagan Bunny Burn and if so, I will be appreciative of having another layer to keep me warm over my tutu and corset.
You probably don’t know this, since you don’t wear a tutu with a corset unless you’re a ballerina (or a burner) but they’re actually NOT THAT WARM!
Sometimes, I say the STRANGEST things. . .
