Went to my first-ever bachelorette party last night for a friend who’s getting married in August… Nine of us dressed up in various versions of tight/sparkly/sheer and went downtown for cocktails, drag singers and dancing. Everything I wore was borrowed: dress from my little sister, shoes and jacket from Eliina, necklace from Amanda. And come to think of it, everything was also blue — the shoes, for example, were sparkly, navy blue, five-inch platform heels. I’d just recently been reminiscing about my four-inch gold platforms from my high school senior prom, so I thought it’d be fun to wear them. Which it was. Except for the whole walking thing. Eliina wore equally tall platform, knee-high boots. We lagged at least five feet behind the group at all times, moving at top speed. ….But as always, what I ended up wearing and where we went didn’t matter as much as I’d expected. I enjoyed the pre-departure dress-up sessions and the El ride just as much as anything.
