What I Wore: Out Dancing


One of my first weekends here in the bay area consisted of meeting up with the boys for a night of Ethiopian food, jazz music, and then dancing in the Tenderloin. Of course we all four completely over dressed and tried our hardest to make complete fools of ourselves dancing. And we did. Mike's friend from highschool was in town and she managed to capture such epic action shots of the four of us. I have to say that Jim and Adam stole the dance floor that night. I also got to meet the tattoo artist, Henry Lewis, but I just said hi to him in passing, haha! I'm so excited for more fun times with these guys!

I was so excited to wear this dress out! I got it before I moved in Michigan and was on sale cause it had some stains... with just a little water the stains were gone... granted there are some grease stains but they are hardly visible! I feel like this is my first adult dress. So many of my vintage are cutesy 50's dresses but this I feel is more elegant. And what made the night even more perfect is that the bar was playing Motown for us to dance to. Perfect dress for it! I think eventually I will make this a backless dress... It's from Hudson's and was altered on the Shops on Woodward, I love old tags!

IT'S SO SWISHY!!!! <- I think my brain is being run by a 5-y/o sometimes. Seriously my initial thought.
Mad love for that yellow ochre paired w/ the jacket (secret Wolvrine!).

Okay so of course I want to know exactly where you went! :) So many delish Ethiopian places around here! You should try Cafe Colucci on Telegraph & Ashby in Berkeley--yum!

And I want to hear all about what you think of the Bay Area--spots you've found, etc. Happy weekend!

What a gorgeous dress! I love this colour! It looks like you're having an amazing time in San Francisco. I was so sad to leave on Saturday!
Glad you're having fun

You look absolutely radiant in that dress, Lauren! It is a beautiful golden squash color, perfect for the current season and a fun night out. I agree that a lot vintage dresses can be too cutesy to the point where they're almost infantalizing, but this one is elegant. I like how you popped it with the purple tights, yay for complimentary colors!
