Outfit: Saturday Night's Alright (For Dancing)


On Saturday night I headed out to town to celebrate my friend, Kate’s, birthday. We sure had ourselves a swell time of it, too! But, in true Andi fashion, I didn’t take as many photos as a good blogger ought too – I did take more than usual, however. Hurrah for that, at least.

I wore this dress, which you all may have seen once or twice before (once, here, twice, there) and was complimented on it more than once during the night. A couple of women wanted to know where I bought it from (and one even asked if she could take my photo, which was a little embarrassing) and were pleasantly surprised when I said my mother had made it for me.

I’m never really sure about this hairstyle but I want to keep practicing because I love it so much on others. Plus, I was glad to have my hair off of my neck by the end of the night!

We started the night at Dragonfly Bar, which I can recommend to anyone who is in/comes to Adelaide – the food was rather nice and the atmosphere was lovely (low, warm lighting, fantastic furniture...there are a few pictures here.)

Then we moved on to Supermild and danced the night away to some great tunes – a lot of ‘60s (which I love, though I think it must look amusing in my ‘40s get-up dancing ‘60s style) but there was a nice variety.

I took most of the photos on my phone using the iPhone Hipstmatic app – I love photography using film and nothing will replace that for me, especially when it comes to making art, but when I want to take silly photos of my friends I’m not so fussed – here are just a couple of them:

Kate and her friend Chloe, both looking fabulous.

The ‘light leak’ effect couldn’t be better placed.

This is a shot to prove that I actually do leave my house on occasion (almost all of my photos are taken in or around my house), taken by Kate.

Oh, and here is a close-up of my earrings, which belonged to my nonna once upon a time.

Hope everyone had just as lovely a weekend as I did, whether you were out dancing or doing something else entirely.

Love,

  7. I love how you did your hair! I've been trying to get mine to cooperate and pile the curls atop my head like that lately, but I think I need to pincurl it first to get it to work. (I've been lazy lately and just done hot rollers when I feel like curling it! ;) Your outfit is so, so cute! I always love dressing up a bit retro when we've gone out dancing; I think by far it always looks classier in a club/dance place. ;)
