I am the type of gal who crushes easy – in life, but mostly in clothes. When I first buy something new, I literally wear it everyday. I can’t take it off. I spend all of my time with my new purchase and neglect all other pieces in my closet. I just fall in lust so easily. I will wear it until I find something cooler and more attractive to move on with – I am a clothing slut, I suppose.
So, this past Saturday my roommate and I threw a Belated Housewarming/Belated National Tequila Day celebration. We spent most of the day literally running around the city to prepare. We also bought so much tequila (and the fixins) that the liquor store dudes asked to be invited. We were nervous. Nervous because we had to CAB back to the apartment with the CASES of margarita ingredients that were actually impossible for us to carry home. We were nervous that no one would show up after all the effort. But we worried for no reason because at one point we actually had 28 people in our tiny ass little place. It was basically a dorm party, and it was amazing. Hadley even made an appearance. She galloped down the hallway into our place. GALLOPED. This is the professional party pic I took. I do Bar Mitzvahs and corporate events if you are interested.
We were so busy in getting ready for this party that when we went to decide what to wear we freaked out. We wanted new party digs. We had just spent a month’s rent on alcohol so obviously the only option was Forever 21. We both scored. This is what we bought. Mine was $16. Do we look cheap? No. Are we? Maybe a little. I love her (the dress, and my roommate, I guess). She is the perfect little summer dress that not only allows you to stay cool in your un-air conditioned portion of the apartment, but also enables the hardcore consumption of guacamole in mass quantities. Perfecto. I love her so much that I WORE IT AGAIN on Monday. I wore it to work and to the after work party where I taught my coworkers what flip cup was. How these people made it this far in life without playing flip cup is beyond me. It is the king of all drinking games. Here is a picture of me at the party. I am emerging from an egg. Keep in mind that this is post flip cup…which was played with wine.Basically it is my new hot and heavy. I would totally be wearing it right now if it weren’t for the guacamole stain in the chest area. $16 of heaven right there. Moral of my story, if you love it, who cares if you wear it 4 times in one week. You bought it didn’t you? Don’t be afraid to repeat. Especially party dresses.
As a bonus, I leave you with a couple new preggo pictures. YES it is the return of the faux baby bump and YES I am wearing the dress (and YES this is a little twisted). My work has it’s perks (like fun props, aka body part add-ons) and the office likes to peer pressure me into things. Enjoy yourself and drink up all, it’s Thirsty Thursday! The weekend is just around the corner.
