I’ve been saving the best for (almost) last… this is one of the most beautiful photo shoots we had during our Burning Man wear-a-thon.
These photos were taken atop, and next to, a big pile of burn barrels ready to be carted away. The burn barrels normally provide light and heat to our camps at night, but now they’re all dead, cold and ready to be stored for winter. They also happen to make a fantastic backdrop.
Even better than the backdrop is this amazing coat, which I’m wearing under the dress. It’s a bias-cut woven piece created by textile artist Lynne Bruning. Amber Clisura helped with the styling, and added a black petticoat underneath the woven coat. The final touch was this amazing belt, a loan from my friend Bad Ash who is a very talented thrift-store shopper.
All in all, this outfit was fun to move in and made for delicious photos. Though, to be fair, everything John Curley photographs looks delicious.
