    Go with professional and comfortable but still fashionable. I like the idea of a pop of color too. Good luck and I hope you nail it!

    I agree with Gunz. I think gray suits are the most attractive in general, and I always like a print shirt and a pop of color.

    Another vote for gray suit and dot shirt. Black pumps. If you decide to go with the black folio, then maybe a colored scarf or bright piece of jewelry?

    yes, this. You need something that will catch the eye but is subtle.

    i've tried doing some work with united way, and honestly whatever group they have going on here is kinda bullshit. like they always advertise for "mixer" events with other volunteers. i don't want to meet people, i want to volunteer. or it's shit like "walk a homeless person through a room and help them pick out food for thanksgiving". i want to do actually helpful things. sorry, i was a bit disappointed with them.

    i think i've found a few options, thanks ladies

    i also support the grey suit and generally think that polka dots look cheap in any size.

    I'm not a particular fan of polka dots (I don't think they look cheap, I just don't love the print), but I think that would look better than a plain black or white shirt, it also seems more "Courtney" to me. Gray suit with a white shirt seems too plain for her.

    they were cheap!

    i'm sure courtney's polka dots are a lot nicer than what i'm thinking of, i just tend to think polka dots on blouses or dresses looks hot-topicy or white-trash rockabilly. i'm more of a stripes girl myself.

    Sorry you had a bad experience with united way, Ivy. My gf worked as a children outreach or something like that in Tucson. She loved it.

    Pin dots are not polka dots, though. They're usually fairly subtle since that's the smallest textile dot.

    I could kind of see that. She is... interesting. Like she thinks her nonprofit work is above everyone else employment.

    i didn't mean to imply anything against her, it's just that anytime a "real" job comes up, it's filled as soon as the email goes out.

    i've put a bunch of feelers out to battered women's shelters. we'll see what comes back

    I'm taking my girlfriend of 3 years to her first coachella. We will be camping to give her the full experience and I know there are alot of festival/camping guide threads. This is my 6th year so I have most of the basics covered already. Do you ladies have any female related tips or advice for her? ie: hair, makeup, clothing DOs/DONTSs

    Pack for either weather option. I felt really bad for all the girls in their underwear last year when it was so fucking cold, although one year I went I packed my normal jeans/tshirts and it was far too hot to wear jeans.

    A big floppy hat always comes in handy when it's really sunny. I also always pack a bandana that I can cool off with water and wrap around my head when it's too hot.

    Comfortable shoes!

    WET WIPES. Don't bother with skin makeup, if you do the full face you'll end up with zits from all the sunscreen/sweat/dirt/makeup. Don't bring solid chapsticks, they'll melt - bring gel ones or whatever.

    carry around tissues/toilet paper because the port-a-potties can run out. also make sure she wears COMFORTABLE shoes. seems like a no-brainer, but i couldn't believe the number of idiots coming up to the first aid tent when IFA was in there in 2008 just wanting band-aids for their retarded shoes.

    if she gets cold like i do, i recommend a sweater that can fit in a bag she carries. i usually bring a drawstring bag to stuff water bottles & my sweater in because it can go from hot to cold depending on the crowd/intoxication level/dance level.

    have fun don't be afraid to separate, just find a designated meeting spot.

    sarongs are like must haves. you can use them to sit on, you can get them wet and use them to cool off when it's hot and you can use them at night to put over your shoulders when it starts to get cold. I usually just tie them like a miniskirt or tie them to my bag when I'm not using them.

    Someone (Loca I think) posted years ago about having a port-a-potty kit, a ziploc, with things like toilet paper, seat covers, wet wipes, antibacterial gel, even a couple of latex/surgical gloves. That was a great idea, and I added a mini flashlight to mine. The port-a-potties can be really awful later at night.

    Seconded for sarong or even just a cotton bandana or scarf. I use them to wash off my face and arms before I re-apply sunscreen, and to cool off my shoulders & neck. Also, if she is fair skinned or burns easily, a lightweight, breathable, long sleeve shirt (like a light colored cotton one) is a good idea. Sunburns and blisters are the two things that can make a festival miserable.

    Small backpacks or cross-body bags will be much more practical than trying to carry a shoulder bag/purse. Anything large is going to become annoying when pressed in a crowd. Fanny packs also work well if you don't need to carry a lot of stuff.

    Lots of women wear sandals or flip flops, I like to, too, during the day, but she should have something more covered for night. Once it gets dark, you can't see what you're stepping in, and trust us, it's not stuff you want to get on your feet.

    Fannypacks may look dumb, but I swear they are so convenient when you set it on your belly -- you can reach right in and grab your chapstick, baby wipe, hand sanitizer, money, whatever. SO CONVENIENT. especially if you're on mind-altering substances.

    I know a lot of people like to bring a fair bit of stuff, so getting a locker can help tremendously if she just wants to go the fannypack route (which I wholeheartedly recommend).
