I'm not going to lie to you, getting out of the bed on Friday "morning" was tough. There were not a lot of morning or early afternoon events that I planned to attend so I took the opportunity to sleep in and make a big breakfast for everyone. I strolled into the Orleans just in time to have Technicolor Cutie do my hair and head up to catch some early evening music.
My early outfit was a gorgeous fan novelty print dress purchased for me by my boyfriend, an armful of Bakelite, and tooled leather accessories. How good does my hair look?! Technicolor Cutie does such a great job.
Around 9 pm, it was time for an outfit change and a rush to the Ballroom to see Jackie Wilson's son Bobby Brooks Wilson. I decided to wear a gorgeous aqua color Lurex dress that I got from Lola Devlin with Betsey Johnson shoes and a silver lame purse.
Bobby puts on a real show and was my favorite performer of the weekend. He is charismatic and harkens back to the days when you had to be able to really sing and perform.
I spent the rest of the evening running back and forth between the Beinville Room and the Ballroom to see friends or catch certain shows.

I changed one more time to head to the record hop. Sadly, I stayed only a few minutes that evening because I had quite literally worn everyone out the two preceding nights.
My last outfit of the evening was a insane blue Lurex top that was a Christmas gift from Lola Devlin, black capri pants from Pinup Girl Clothing, and black flats.
Before calling it a night I ran into two of my absolutely favorite people, Technicolor Cutie and Chelsea in the food court.
We'll end with a little funny reel of pictures. I didn't realize, initially, that my girlfriend was still taking photos. Once we realized it the photos definitely got a little weird and a little funny.
I'll see you on Saturday!
