So my LA preparations have begun. I’ve printed all my itineraries and schedules. I’ve cut my hair and trimmed my beard, and I’ve started the teeth-whitening process.
But mostly I find myself in “clothing crisis” mode. I’m completely stymied. What to pack? What to wear?!? Dear god, what about SHOES??? And how will I get all my hair and shaving products through TSA?!?!????
I’ve already basically given up on looking “nice” while out there. I don’t have nice summer clothes. I have work clothes, and work out clothes.
And then cargo shorts and T shirts.
My clothing crisis is twofold: first, I am NOT packing multiple suitcases for a 3 day trip, and second, I still have to bring a tuxedo and possibly something for an after concert “gathering”.
My plan is to take ONE carry on– just a garment bag suitcase. That’s it. And the rest of my wardrobe choices for the weekend must fit in said bag or be worn on the plane.
But what to wear to this “after concert event”? There was no dress code posted. I don’t know if it will skew more toward gala or gay bar?
And while I know it’s always better to over-dress, that just means more clothing to pack. And possibly different shoes.
Being gay really sucks sometimes.
