I think the older I get the more the club scene doesn’t appeal to me. Last year, I did a bowling outing that Friday before my birthday and then went downtown the following Saturday to a club called “The Shrine.” This year was a little different than last. I celebrated my birthday at a local business called “Brushed and Bottles.”
What is “Brushes and Bottles?” “Brushes and Bottles” is a local business where an instructor guides you through painting a picture, all while being able to sip on wine or beer. Since, I had a party of 10 I was able to bring in food for my guest. My family, friends, and I were able to drink, eat, laugh, joke, and enjoy each other’s company. It was absolutely awesome and something I would totally do it again!
Since, I knew I would be around paint I wanted to wear something casual. I wanted to be casual enough where I could still step out for a possible drink afterwards, so the night wouldn’t end so early. As late as the morning of the painting party I did not know what I was going to wear. I decided to take a trip to the mall to possibly get my creative juices flowing.
When I got to the mall I knew I wanted to hit my two favorite “Go To” stores, Windsor and Akira. I walked through Windsor not really seeing anything I liked so I trucked it upstairs to see what Akira had to offer. I shuffled through the racks not really seeing anything but when I got to the shoes I saw the cutest pair of black fringe wedges. I immediately thought the wedges would be perfect for the night. The more I fell in love with the shoes, the more I began to think about what I had in my closet to compliment the shoes. I left the mall with another pair of shoes to add to my collection and the perfect outfit in mind.
I paired the shoes with my red pencil skirt, and my black with white letters “Te Amo” graphic tank from Windsor that I purchased a few weeks earlier. I went with my red braided necklace, my large gold bushed button earrings, and my gold bangle bracelet set to compliment the outfit. I pulled my faux locs up in a high bun and was ready for the night.
I had an amazing night and I know year 32 is going to be great!
