Dance Party!Posted: November 28, 2011
I like to support bands and artists that deserve more attention. I also like to support family any way I can. So, here is another plug, this time for the group Holy Ghost! (who may or may not have my brother-in-law doing sound for them on tour). For those who are unfamiliar with them, Holy Ghost! plays fun, upbeat, electropop music that makes you want to move and groove. When Chris and I went to their last show of the tour, I felt like I needed to put more elbow pumping into my dance moves just to create a pocket for more breathing room (note: I’m not used to the expected closeness at concerts; unfortunately, I don’t go out enough). All in all, we had a great time, although my new red shoes got scraped and scuffed (expected casualties from a jamming environment).
My souvenir for the evening was this rad shirt. I was in a color-block, ’80s-inspired mood (must have been all the ’80s movies that I watched over the weekend), so I wore this loose-fitting magenta and black dress underneath. I, unfortunately, didn’t have an appropriate blazer to wear (I’ll save that for this upcoming weekend, I think), so I went with a gray cover up. I also wanted to wear an outfit that showed off my platform heels from my Family Ties post, but I wasn’t in the tights-wearing spirit, so I decided to wear my black, white, and gray argyle socks. I was hesitant to wear the socks with the heels, but Chris did his “squint and assess” and told me it matched (although he was probably trying to get us to leave the apartment for food–I’m not sure).
So, this is what I wore to celebrate my birthday. At my parents’ house. Hey–when you can’t bring your parents to a club, you bring the club to them, right?
