If I'm being completely honest, packing for my first professional conference has made me want to just go out and buy all new clothes.
I don't know how many blog posts I've read about what to wear, and all of them are so ambivalent: dress professionally, but not too dressy; it's summer so dress cool, but there's AC everywhere so bring a jacket; you'll be in meetings all day, but don't forget about the social night life part.
I'll be meeting so many new people, hanging out with colleagues from my cohort, making a million first impressions. This is too stressful.
At this point, all I've decided on is lipstick.
So, you know, if you see a girl walking around in underwear and red lipstick, that's me.
