dressed up like a lady: Starting off with a Bang!

Jan 5, 2010

Starting off with a Bang!

Here in Ann Arbor, ringing in the new year means one thing, and that's the New Years Bang! -- a very special iteration of the monthly mixtape dance party that I've happily posted about before. The theme this year was the Discopocalypse Bang.

In my mind, this meant one part Mad Max, One part 70's glam:

 Resulting in this work of complete insanity:
 Yes, that's a holster containing a toy gun. Yes, I'm fine with that.
MC looked quite smashing as well. :)
That's us, dancing the night away, nose-to-nose. :)

Also: over the holidays, I went a little bananas with the Rodarte for Target collection, and can I just mention how in love I am with this leopard print minidress? I love it so much that I wore it out to a bunch of places where I proceeded to sip on Shirley Temples and have a grand old time without ever once remembering to force some poor friend to take a full outfit shot. Anyway, I paired it with some winged out eyes and a little pale gloss for a mod 60's vibe.

So how did you welcome the new year? I'd love to hear about it. Oh, and thanks to my dear friend Dan, for tolerating the consequences of being near me in a picture (which is to say, finding one's self on the internet.)
