So, since you’ll all be coming to the wonderful Summer Social Pop Up launch party tonight, you can help me with an all-consuming and deep-burning dilemma: my outfit. Here are the options:
1. Super vintagey 1960s halter dress:
PROS: It’s like, totally vintagey. I mean, when in real life do you get to wear something this vintagey and NOT look like you are wearing a costume for a Hawaiian Rockabilly Burlesque Show? Plus, it makes my bod look ROCKIN’ (read: it hides my elephant-thighs).
CONS: We’re going to go to Camp 4 to dance like 90′s maniacs to Elise’s beats after the party, and that place is like, ground zero for “purposely-oversized-and-ugly-because-that’s-cool-right-now” styles. I anticipate that at least 70% of the girls will be wearing high-waisted, mom-bum Levi’s jean shorts with ankle boots and a boxy crop top with a top-of-the-head bun or some iteration of this outfit. WHICH MEANS that I will look like I am wearing a costume. A weird, Hawaiian Rockabilly Burlesque grandma costume.
2. High-waisted suede shorts with button-up sleeveless shirt:
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a picture of me. I will look significantly less cute/skinny/nubile. Plus I won’t be wearing a blazer.
PROS: The shorts are vintage and the outfit is pretty cute. Unlike most shorts, these ones do not cut into the top of my thighs like butcher string and leave my leg fat bubbling up along the hem. They’re also high-waisted which suits my body-type. This outfit would be much more appropriate for the Camp 4 grunge-hipster gauntlet.
CONS: The shorts are a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitle short and revealing, and I’m worried that I’m going to be self-conscious all night and pulling at them and looking like a weirdo. Plus, I have a feeling it’s going to be hot tonight, and wearing suede on my nether-regions in 30 + degree weather does not sound appealing right now…
WHAT DO I DO?????
Sweet baby jesus, can you vote for the outfit you want to see me in? It’ll be revealed at the party tonight!
In other news, I baked up some deeeee-lish pink shortbread last night for the party. The first batch turned out awesome:
Then I got ambitious and accidentally took a long, luxurious shower while the other batch was baking and totally forgot about it:
