Well, I finally pulled myself out of the fog I’ve been in since the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting enough to actually start packing for Burning Man.
As typical of me, I’m starting with my outfits.
In previous years, I’ve brought as many as TWO DOZEN outfits to Burning Man.
This year, it’s a dozen.
For 9 days in the desert, that ain’t bad.
The good news is the outfits only take up TWO travel bins and are already pre-sorted and pre-organized into individual Ziploc bags so each bag equals one outfit, complete with jewelry and accessories.
The bad news is that it’s taking more time than I anticipated to find everything and organize it into bags.
I’ve got three weeks left to complete my packing though, so I’m in good shape.
I decided to get a pseudo quinceañera dress for my collection.
Something fluffy and transparent, but not too bulky:
. . . it’s PINK!
In case you haven’t noticed, I NEVER wear pink.
So this signifies a big change for me and believe it or not, I’m looking forward to pairing the dress with some pink sneakers (I don’t do heels on the playa anymore) and a tiara set:
It’s definitely not the most festive of quincañera dresses, but it’s pretty floofy without having any glitter, beading, or sequins on it – and that’s EXACTLY what I’m looking for in a MOOP-free quinceañera dress.
