At the W
I spent last night at the W Hotel with my friend Gavin. You probably know him as Gavin DeGraw. When I say "spent last night", I mean 8-12pm, and we had a few other friends along (you know, say, an audience of people). We were celebrating the release of his CD Free with a concert, open bar, and goodie bags with his new album. You know Gav, he's pretty chill.
Most concerts I go to in Atlanta are at pretty low-key, indie, small-ish venues (The Earl, Variety Playhouse, Decatur CD, Criminal Records). Most concert-goers I see wear long bangs, skinny jeans, pleather jackets, shrunken cardigans etc. The W in Midtown is more boob-age (cleavage would be a euphemism), bleach-blondes, manis and pedis. Either way, I wouldn't be comfortable at a concert where I couldn't move for fear of boob slipage or undoing my side-swept bangs.
This AA dress with a convertible F21 vest is the most comfortable going-out outfit I've yet to invent. I can wear the vest loose or knotted and it makes the tightness of the dress less hoochie. And I know most of you are way over the fringe trend, but I can't let it go. I actually would advocate for fringe at concerts of any kind (see Zara booties). Attach it to your pleather jacket or wear it on your mini-halter dress, and the movement is awesome when you rock out to whomever. I bet Gavin and Arcade Fire would both appreciate the exuberance of your attire.
Gav, I know you're reading this, we should do it again sometime.
Thanks to my (non-imaginary) friends, Ali, Kelly and Mark! I had an incredible time!
