Post-Tiki Bar hangover is a fun look too!

I saw something in the catalog I was working on last night that made me think of this fashion direction:

Careful with eyelash yarn. Sometimes the fluffy stuff comes off and becomes MOOP. Check before bringing to the playa.

Absolutely fantastic.

My first year I came out with a sheet of white cotton and a brooch. I wore the cloth so as to have a hood for my head, and covering down to my legs. Worked like a charm. Just enough protection to keep the sun from killing me and light enough to stay cool. At times I'd throw the excess over my shoulders and wear it as a cape, that and with the hood down there was still enough protection to keep my shoulders from getting burned.

Also play with how electroluminescent wire looks through the fabric at night. A bit around my neck and the whole thing was glowing blue.

Woah! That's a beautiful idea! My entire Dad's side is Irish immigrants so I burn extremely easily. I have really fair white skin, freckles and red hair. I burn really easy and have to be extremely careful about sun exposure because I've already had several 3rd degree sunburns and don't want to get cancer - That's no bueno.

I would definitely wear one, pulling a mini R2D2 behind me on a leash and everything. I even have the pocket belt for it.

Post Tiki Bar Hangover can be equally as epic as Post Apocalyptic. It's like an apocalypse happened directly in your liver.

I wore headwraps/robes most of the time last year and it was really comfortable even in the middle of the day.

All this used to be Banana Republic's specialty. Here's some old catalog cuts:

Wow. I actually would have shopped at the old Banana Repub1ic.

Now they're trying to sell me 90-dollar pencil skirts with one more button than the version they sell at the G.A.P for $54.95, with a tad more dignity to those than the hideous breakaway version at 0ld Navy for $29.95.
