Gold Glitter Prom

Happy Monday lovely people. I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Mine was once again filled with cohabitation-related activities. We got a lot of stuff unpacked and put away. I'm really starting to feel better about the whole thing and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm looking forward to having our nights back. Whoever thought that sitting on the couch watching television would be such a luxury?
This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the QDP Prom. QDP stands for Queer Dance Party and one of the best dance nights in town. They happen about once a month at the 5 Spot and are a guaranteed great time. For their one year anniversary they decided to throw the BIGGEST QDP yet. It was held at the Mercy Lounge and had live bands (Ponychase, Tipper Whore, and My So Called Band) as well as your favorite QDP DJs. There was even a choreographed dance number to a Robyn song! 
So this is the outfit I chose to wear to this awesome party. I know it isn't a big ball gown and I don't have an up-do, but that was never my jam. While there were a few people decked out in prom attire, retro 80s puffy dresses and even *gasp* lingerie. I decided to focus all my energy on the bling. Because I don't think there is anything classier than simple black and gold.
I can't express how much I love this jacket. I picked it up during a crazy sale from Modcloth during their Cabin Fever deal. I don't have enough sparkly things in my wardrobe so when I saw this for a very reasonable price, I pounced. I got tons of compliments on it so I gather it was a worthwhile purchase. Now I just need to attend a few more events where this sucker would be appropriate.
 Jacket: Modcloth
Dress: American Apparel
Tights: Betsey Johnson
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Necklace: Betsey Johnson
PomPom Crown: The BombPom

  1. I'm loving those pom-poms in your hair!

    Moving is such an arduous task. Unpacking/decorating is fun, though! Can't wait to see pictures of your love nest. :)

  4. That looks like an awesome party outfit! I love the giant pom poms - I don't think a lot of people could pull it off but it actually works and looks cool.

    1. Thanks! They were actually taken at the back room of Mercy Lounge during QDP. There were some party guests that were confused about why there was a mini photo shoot going on.

      We still haven't had a TV night! I just want to finish Downton Abby!

  7. That jacket is a showstopper, for serious. GOR-geous. That first picture should be your future album cover!

    1. Haha. Album? Apparently you have never heard me sing or try and play an instrument. No one would buy it.
