Sadly it's the last of the fabric. Well, actually the very last is set aside to make one of these for my honey.

Chances are good that you'll get a ticket, especially if you can afford to buy in more than one tier. There are carpools from NY, or you can fly into San Francisco, LA, or Reno, and catch a ride from there, either with friends, from Craigslist, or from Reno there is a Playa shuttle! It can be done!

Also the boots are from a mother/daughter company in Thailand. I think I need a second pair, just trying to decide which style! http://www.siamesedreamdesign.com/servlet/StoreFront
Also, I love the way you used the fringe to your advantage and didn't chop it off Smiley

Cheesy Thanks for the advice and link! I definitely need some, I'm thinking ether the Bluebird boots or the Rainbow Brite Cyndie shoes! Smiley
Congrats on your upcoming nuptials!! I'm sure they will be spectacular!

This is so gorgeous.  I'm working on a jacket or two for Burning Man and am trying to decide between lining them in fleece of minky.

Minky is more expensive, but I think its softness and subtle texture is worth the extra cost. It's just as easy to care for, but it will make your coat a little more playa and a little less North Face. But then again there's a wider selection of fleece prints. You can't really go wrong, but having used both I prefer the minky.

This is AWESOME!  It looks so good and it sounds sooo cosy!  I especially love the well-planned detail of the two-way zip.
