and one more with the camel,
and one with me and Toby:
now I've got this figured out
Great pictures! The camel pictures are my favorite (camels crack me up!) You look prepared to take on anything! Can you tell us all about what you are wearing! I especially like your boots.
These are the boots. They are perfect, I got several compliments on them this weekend. I'm not sure if they are still available on Zappos. Very comfy.
A cool book to check out
Girl Friday oh my god why were you with a camel?! its so amazing and fun wow. i'm jealous.
Fashion basics: Amelia Earhart had a sense of style that was based on comfort. Above is a sketch of one of the aviator's costumes from the movie. (Sandra Spannan / 20th Century Fox)
The hunt for authentic boots
I'm looking for lace-up Amelia Earhart style boots (or riding boots) sans zip for over a year now.
I cannot get a photo of these burberry boots loaded. They are ridiculously expensive, but look like a replica of Patton boots and are really about what I want as I have yet to find any lace-up boots without a zipper.
Anyone have ideas? I need some winter/autumn boots and didn't buy any last year...
How about these Stempunk boots by Penangalens. I have loads of boots form this company- they are all handmade and they are willing to be acomodating- they are'nt too expensive either. i got some 'little red riding hood' boots made for me.
fftopic: I rode through some of the Sahara desert on a camel- just like me, the smallest in the group, to get the biggest , nastiest and most aggressive camel! It was the only one wearing a muzzle lol
Moved Post - Ladies' Adventure gear
I had posted this in the general safari thread, but some seemed to think it would fit better here, so I hope you don't mind the intrusion of a gentleman into the ladies powder room... (I promise I won't peek!)
Don't misunderstand me - I believe in equality with men and women, my views are strictly on the "historical value" when I say that - although many like the "Tom-boy" look of wearing men's clothes, some other (possibly more "lady-like") options might include:
JK, though you're welcome to that if you feel like it...
Hope this gives you some useful ideas...
This is at the Pioneer of Flight Museum in Kingsbury, Texas. We will be down there again May 7th for the fly in.

An Amelia Earhart update
Resurrecting this thread to ask the lady adventurer cyclists out there how they deal with bike helmets and hairstyles.
I've done quite a bit of cycling in the past (including racing penny farthings, but that's another story) but only recently getting back in the saddle, so to speak. I plan on riding to work which means I need to look relatively respectable when I get there. Hairstyle ideas, currently hair is cut in a middy which I wear in loose curls.
In the throws of organising a trek in Northern Iraq and afterwards a camel trek in Jordan!
I don't ride bikes but I do ride horses occasionally and the helmets are quite similar. The best solution I found so far was to keep the hair pin curled with bobby pins and covered with a thin scarf. Wear helmet on top of that, then style upon arrival. No great ideas for the way home though ...
What about a Pith helmet styled cycle helmet? With a scarf around it?
