All-Out EDGE---the day of Dance

 


Can y'all handle this little change of pace?
From your normally vintage-lover poster girl comes a taste of the extreme other side...the wild side.


 I haven't gone out clubbin' with my girls in awhile...but we heard about free cover and cheap drinks at a local club if you were to show up in an LBD.  IRRESISTIBLE.
Since the dress was pre-decided, the rest of the outfit needed to pack the punch 
I bought new shoes for the occasion.  Quite the shoes, eh?  Inspiration for this outfit comes from Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj (I was thinking the theme song for these shoes is "Pound the Alarm"), and Anna Dello Russo.

My kicks are siiiiiiick!

Loving my Arm Party.



Edge isn't something you see from me a lot, but--as with anything--I stand by the old adage  
"GO BIG OR GO HOME," 
especially if it's something unusual.  


"There's nothing sexy like excess." 
--Anna Dello Russo--





Did my nails to match...you like?

I've got crazy nails, a fierce topknot, studs 'n spikes, dark eyeliner, and two-tone lips.  I'd say that qualifies as "excess."  What say you, ADR?


Anyway, the reason this post is subtitled "the day of Dance" is because I danced from 5:00PM until 1:00AM!  It was soooo much fun...

I used to go Swing dancing downtown twice a week and clubbing on the weekends, but when I got married to a non-dancer my own dancing streak kind of came to an end.
Luckily I can get my dancing fix now that my friend, Emilee (who has been featured on this blog before) is taking ballroom dance lessons!  On this illustrious day, she got me into her studio for an individual ballroom lesson, a group line dance lesson, and a dance party (and remember, all this was followed by going out clubbin').

Before I sign off, I want to share the following two photos of my girls and I us at the studio's dance party.  It was a Wizard of Oz theme.  Can you guess what our costumes are?

ANSWER: I represent...the Lullaby League!

ANSWER: Em is Glinda and
Piera (who also has been featured before) is the Witch of the East (lol)
You should've seen me Cha-Cha and Rumba in this makeshift tutu...it was poofing and flipping all over the place!  (Fear not: there were no wardrobe malfunctions.)  Phenomenal.

  11. What a perfect look for clubbing! Nothing beats an LBD. I'm curious, how is it walking in those shoes? Are they easier or harder than regular heels? Sounds like you had fun regardless!

    1. Oddly enough, my feet hurt less than my girlfriends' at the end of the evening! These kind of shoes are surprisingly easy to walk in (wearing heels frequently helps, too).

  25. Those shoes are insane, in definitely a cool way! I love the silhouette and the studded detailing. They definitely remind me of the Alexander McQueen shoes that Demi Moore wore on the cover of Harper's Bazaar! Thanks for posting those awesome shoes!
