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.

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.
