Deja Vu

DSC_2320
You may be thinking, “didn’t this bitch post this outfit yesterday..or something similar?” And yes, yes I did. I transitioned my  afternoon outfit from yesterday’s post to nighttime fun by changing into a sheer maxi, studded boots and a smaller bag to keep my arms free for the fun events from last Friday night.

I headed out with Tieka to ModCloth’s and the Swapaholics‘ Modswap event and prepared myself for some serious fun. I’ve never been a part of a swap event and in case you’re not familiar, attendees had to bring two items to swap and once you tag the items, you’re free to select two items off the racks. I selected a maxi dress that Tieka brought and a gold sequined vest and I was also able to snag an additional blouse from ModCloth that I’m so in love with! Any time an event combines Blue Moon beer, clothes and stylish ladies, it’s a recipe for success in my book. I met so many great girls and was reunited with many that I haven’t seen since the last New York Fashion Week I was at in February 2010.

The next stop of the night was Bloggers Night Out at Pranna. I was blown away by how organized the event was and the amazing turnout. The highlight of the night was spinning the wheel at the Lulu’s booth and winning a free item of my choice. Once I spotted the Steve Madden leopard print boots earlier that night, I knew I had to will myself to win and bring them home with me that night. Since I’m a fan of contests and free things, I also entered the best dressed blogger contest and won a gift card to Shop It To Me! Hooray!

    I saw your picture over on Jen's blog and had to come over and check out the rest of your leopard print blouse outfit – amazing! The sheer maxi is so pretty and flowy, and those heels are fierce. Fantastic outfit for what looks like an amazing night out!

    Those spiked platform boots are killer Andrea. Since I'm cultivating my "scarier" side I've been really into spikes skulls and anything else that looks, well, painful! You show that these shoes aren't just a one-note accessory – they can easily go with a chiffon maxi-skirt to add the perfect amount of edge without venturing into punk caricature.
