This Memorial Day Weekend I will be escaping Portland with some girlfriends to Baker City in Eastern Oregon for a "Vision Quest." Activities will include hiking, horseback riding, star gazing, and freaking out the locals with our gypsy antics. (The group includes Alana and Suzy from Psychic Siamese Terror, so we can really scare up some spirits.) The costumes of choice will fall somewhere between cowgirl and Stevie Nicks, and while I have plenty of things to choose from from my own wardrobe I thought it would be fun to embellish with a fantasy shopping spree. Money was no object but I did limit myself to only choosing from local designers and retailers, and I chose things that were more practical and less costumey. I found tons of awesome stuff, and even after editing down my choices I still ended up with a great selection that would guarantee I would look great in any circumstance I might find myself in, say, an outdoor drunken seance involving a horse.
