Is My City Evolving?

This weekend was full of events. First, I attended a launch party for the The ArtHype, a multi-faceted marketing and promotions team. Their vision for their brand serves as a breath of fresh air for the city of Omaha, as we are finally developing in the  artistic nightlife realm. It was an amazing experience, and I would like to congratulate the men behind the brand on their success thus far. I see great things in the future for them.
I was suppose to get a dress made, as I am completely tired of shopping at common stores that carry mundane concepts of  merchandise. But, the designer that I had consulted for a dress was working on an entire wardrobe for a reality star. Consequently, we had to push back my date. So, I opted to go shopping in the local mall, and I stumbled upon one of the ads in the department store, as soon as I saw the dress that was being displayed in the store was actually for sell, I snatched it right away. My biggest fear was that someone else would have on the dress, because it was so amazing. But, God heard my prayers and allowed me to be the only one there in it. (Thank you Jesus)

Subsequently following, was the Grand Opening of the newest club, Capitol Lounge & Supper Club. I didn't know what look I was going for that night, but I knew I wanted to make a statement. I never wore my favorite vintage sequins jacket out for evening wear, and I knew the time was now. Everything just kind of came together once I went shopping, and one of my bestfriends, Aja, handed them to me. I almost put them down, but then I considered what I laid out to wear that evening, and knew it would be the perfect compliment for my vintage bolero. So, I decided to purchase them and it was a great investment. Once I put them on, I felt like an official Urban Rock Star. A cross between Rihanna/Lady GaGa/Amber Rose. Whatever the case, I felt supa dupa fly!
I usually like to have my cannon rebel when taking pictures  for my blog, but my little cannon served its purpose this time around. I hate carrying high tech cameras around at night. I hope you all don't mind. It felt so great to incorporate my style of Edgy-Glamour into two segments of the weekend. Friday was full of glamour with a little edge. And, Saturday night was full-blown edge. Oh, how I adore fashion and getting dressed up.
