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.
