Boom.Boom.Boom. Even Brighter Than The Moon.Moon.Moon.

Currently Listening to:
"Firework" by Katy Perry

(Upcycled vintage prom dress, Vintage "Thunderdome" mink from RogueRetro, White House | Black Market"Sweet Nothings" Convertable Clutch/Purse, and black tights and heels from F21, hair by Pinkage.)

Thursday night I attended the first ever Girl's Night Out event at The Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento. The Citizen is a beautiful - and I MEAN BEAUTIFUL - historic hotel that sings of the 20s prohibition era with its beautiful architecture and styling. (I wish I could live in it!) The event itself was quite awesome, I have to say. The whole scene was set on the seventh floor terrace - luckily they put up faux walls (complete with windows to view the gorgeous Sacramento nighttime view) to block out the November night chill, which wasn't too bad either considering the weather we've been having. I braved the so-so weather, which vaguely reminded me of Winter nights in Huntington Beach, in my old prom dress, my new vintage mink, black tights and black heels. (Not my Mary Jane pumps for once, by the way, but still F21 all the same.)

Anyhoo! I met up with Kari (Juniper * James) and Angeline (The New Professional), all of us evoking the spirit of our blogs, and there we shopped and networked the brilliant vendors (my business cards still smell like perfume!) whilst we ate tasty gourmet appetizers and petifours and sipped bubbly Champagne. I was lucky to get a touch-up on my makeup by the wonderful girls at the Lancome booth, whome extended a special invitation to the Macy's/Lacome Gala next Saturday my way, which I'm excited for! (However, I'm at a loss for what to wear now lol) Needless to say, it was definitely a night for the girl's with all the pampering and the swag. I was excited to have met the mother and daughter duo behind Vintage YSJ as well as the talented ladies at Amithyst Salon & Boutique.

Amithyst, the fabulous femme whom the salon is owned and named for, also designs absolutely gorgeous vintage-inspired fascinators and headbands that are dripping in rhinestones and pearls and hand-dyed feathers, and of course you all know me; I flocked right to them! I'm definitely looking forward to teaming up with Amithyst after the upcoming holiday for a feature and a photoshoot!

I had an absolutely lovely time and I'm looking forward to the next Girl's Night Out hosted by The Citizen.
